Simple Tips To Give A Mesmerising Makeover To Your Bedrooms



Your bedroom is your one place of solace, that slice of heaven that you escape to at the end of your day. It should be a place that you’re comfortable in, and the decor should reflect that. Most of the time, bedrooms accumulate the fallout of years of neglect and misuse, and end up cluttered, without proper elements. Your furnishing needs and the look you want to achieve may change over the years you stay there, and every once in a while, you feel the need to update the “look” that it has. Redecorating is usually a costly affair, but it doesn't have to be. There are many small changes and additions you can incorporate that make a huge difference but don’t really lighten your wallet by much. We’ll work through the bedroom, element by element, so you can transform your bedroom into a luxurious experience!

The Bed

The bed is the focal point in your bedroom, and often the most neglected. Changing this goes a long way in setting the look and feel of the room. Invest in good pillows and linens. Two different pillow sizes should be enough, along with a set of neck pillows. Adding a classy duvet is an easy instant upgrade. Headboards are an inexpensive centerpiece. To add a personal touch, buy an old, used headboard and revamp it. Add your own paint, or upholster it in a fabric of your choice and voila! In case you have a metal bedpost with a frame behind it, you can decorate the wall behind your bed with an inexpensive but dramatic rug. This is an excellent bargain option that needs a minimum amount of effort as well.

The Curtains 
 
Upgrading your curtains provides a fresh look at the room. Have boring, single color curtains? Add instant glam with a richly embroidered window valance. Wooden pelmets that hide unsightly curtain rods are another easy option. If your existing pelmets are boring, a fresh coat of paint can do wonders. If painting isn’t an option, you can use wash tape to define the borders that gives a nice, quirky look to the item.

The curtains themselves should be changed too. Investing in high-quality material and a nice design is always a good idea. Use light colors and translucent material if you don’t have a lot of ambient light in the room, and darker colors and heavy material for bigger rooms. Blinds are an option that adds a modern look and feel and are easy to maintain as well.

The Floor 
 
The floor can make a huge difference to a room. Smaller rooms could do without carpeting, and the natural wood flooring makes the room look much bigger and airier. Instead, area carpets offer a much classier-looking alternative that is functional too. The color of your carpeting can go a long way in changing the look of your room. Changing it might be a tad expensive, but is worth every penny in the overall outcome. DIY dyeing is another option here. You can customize the color to be one you want, and you won’t have to stick to what’s available in the store.

Storage

This is the most dramatic change that you can make, and for nearly nothing at that! You can often have a number of piles of things in your bedroom. This makes the room look untidy and messy, and generally trashy. Step up your game with some easy storage options that instantly make your room look fresher and brighter. Old wire baskets can be lined with pretty fabric to make excellent storage options. Keep wicker baskets for dirty laundry. Keep a dedicated trashcan. Add a bookshelf. Your options are limited only by your imagination!

Accessories

These are the cheapest tips there are. Update an old dresser or wooden cabinet with a new, dark tint and new knobs or handles. Updating handles and knobs doesn’t take much money, but makes any old item feel like new. You could pick up some vintage ones for a luxurious, old-world feel. New varnish on all your woodwork is an excellent update that you can do at home.

Add new accessories like lamps that fix bad lighting in the room. Go for subdued lighting here, with an option to increase it if the need arises. Add wall-fixtures to add drama, and play with levels in your space. Invest in paintings, or get your old photographs framed. Use wall decals for an easy fix to blank wall space. Wall murals which are custom made, either store bought or handmade, add a personal touch and just the right amount of drama to make a good talking point.  Log in to http://www.homestoreonline.com.au for more information and details.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
