6 Easy Ways to Switch Up Your Bedroom Color Scheme | Schlage

Here are 6 easy methods for changing the color scheme of your bedroom without spending a fortune.



Changing the look and feel of a room in your home shouldn't always require a large investment of time and money. If you know you'll want to switch things up every once in a while, start with a future-proof base that will allow you to play around with accents and accessories. If your bedroom is already a blank canvas, try adding a new color scheme with one or more of these six ideas.

1. Decorative Pillows

Having decorative accent pillows on your bed provides an easy way to switch up your look from time to time. Opt for pillow covers and inserts to make the switch even easier.

2. Get the layered look

Layering blankets on your bed makes it easy and effortless to change the look of your room. Simply re-arrange the layers or switch a single layer out for a new color or texture.

3. Add an area rug

Area rugs play a major role in the look of your room. Choose one rug with many colors to give you more options as you switch up pillows and blankets or opt for a brand new rug to change the entire room with one accent.

4. Create a gallery wall

Gallery walls are a beautiful way of adding your personal touch to any room. Show off photos of your latest vacation, your favorite quote or a child's artwork. Switch the images out to reflect the season or upcoming holidays.

5. Try a new vignette

Having a vignette on a dresser or nightstand offers unlimited ways to change your look. Have a place for fresh flowers you can switch up with the seasons for a beautiful pop of color. For tips on how to display the perfect arrangement, check out this article from Apartment Therapy.

6. Paint a focal point

Give your bedroom color palette an interesting pop by painting a nightstand, door, dresser or accent wall a unique color. Just be sure to give it the right finishing touch with coordinating accessories that tie the whole room together.
