Ready for a Bedroom Makeover? Check Out These 8 Fabulous Buys

Looking for some bedroom essentials to spruce up your space? Home & Texture’s got you covered.

We spend hours each day in our primary bedrooms. Because of that, this room should be a retreat and place of peace. Too often, we allow our rooms to become a catch-all for clothes or landing ground for knick-knacks that don’t have a home. May we suggest giving your bedroom an upgrade with some simple changes that can have a major impact?

When your room is a place of respite everything feels better including watching television, snuggling up with a good book, and, of course, sleeping. For some, the idea of upgrading their room is overwhelming. We get it! Figuring out what changes to make and how to make them can seem like too large of a task to tackle but it doesn’t have to be that complicated. Bedroom makeover essentials like comfortable bedding, warm lighting, and lush window treatments can make a big difference with minimal cost and effort. These relatively small changes won’t take much to implement and many you can install them yourself. The impact, however, will be noticeable and you’ll feel the difference every time you walk into your room.  We’ve crafted a list of items with various design styles that can be used to revive your space. Whether your style leans toward modern simplicity, relaxed bohemian, or elevated luxury, these changes will have you running home to kick off your shoes and relax in your room.


Upgrading the lighting in your room is one change that can have a big, immediate impact. Builder-grade lights are often harsh and under-designed. A simple swap can take you from basic to bold. When deciding on a new light fixture consider if you’re willing to hire an electrician to swap out the old for the new. If you’re not ready to take that leap, we’ve also found a plug-in option that requires no work at all.


Bedding offers both comfort and an opportunity to elevate your room. With so many options you can choose to go for a rustic feel or opt for elegance. Either way, make sure to choose fabrics that feel as good as they look.

Curtains — The Ultimate in Bedroom Essentials

Window treatments are a decor addition that can be easy to overlook. Figuring out the size needed for your room and installing them can seem overwhelming but it’s worth the effort. Curtains easily elevate a space and can tie your decor together beautifully.

1Wood Beaded Chandelier

This bedroom makeover essential offers romantic ambiance for spaces with bohemian or farmhouse styles. The two-light chandelier gives off a soft glow that is perfect for a primary room or could also work well in a nursery, hallway or small office. The fixture is constructed of wood beads that soften any glare from the light. It’s also dimmable if a dimmer and dimmable bulbs are installed along with the fixture allowing you even more control. The light is hardwired so it will require some working knowledge of wiring. However, many reviewers say they installed it themselves in about an hour.

2Sputnik Chandelier

Create a luxurious space with this six-light sputnik chandelier. It’s simple design, clean lines and soft gold finish will compliment your bedroom without commanding too much attention. If you prefer your bedroom well-lit, this fixture, which is not dimmable, is for you. The white balls at the ends of each arm are actually E26 bulbs.  The 6 bulbs required for the fixture are not included but can also be purchased from Amazon. For installation, you’ll need working knowledge or wiring. Reviews mention that while the fixture is fairly easy to install there are a lot of wires that can make the process slightly complicated. The fixture is easy to clean and comes with a two year warranty. 

3Plug-In Wall Sconces

Wall sconces are a bedroom makeover essential that offer elegance and interest. This set is great for anyone who is not interested in wiring a fixture. With these you simply plug and play. They are ready to go right out of the box by plugging them into an outlet. The sconces are also dimmable and come with a rotating knob that both turns the lights on and off and allows you to adjust brightness. The black finish feels industrial yet high-end and the beige fabric shades add softness and texture. Place these next to your headboard or on opposing sides of a window. 

4Linen Duvet

Duvets are a great option if you already have a good quality comforter that needs a refresh. You simply insert the pre existing bedding into the duvet for an instant improvement. This duvet is made of 100% linen and comes in a variety of soothing colors. The linen is temperature regulating and breathable. The fabric will increase in softness as it’s washed but don’t let the softness fool you as the material is durable and strong. This duvet isn’t for perfectionists. It’s made to have a wrinkled, relaxed look that exudes effortlessness in the most chic way. The set includes one duvet and two pillow shams. 

5Velvet Quilt Set

Bright whites, tans and bleached woods are definitely having a style moment right now but that doesn’t mean bold colors and patterns are out. Bedding is a great way to insert some color and interest into your bedroom. This velvet quilt set comes in four different rich jewel tones but including this teal. The set comes with a quilt and two shams. The quilt is oversized for better coverage of deep mattresses. You can use this quilt as your main bedding or layer it over your current comforter.  The velvet paired with the quilted pattern will pair well with contemporary decor styles. 

6Chunky Knit Blanket

A bedding upgrade doesn’t alway mean replacing everything you have. This chunky knit blanket may be all the change you need. Layer it at the end of your bed during the day and snuggle up with it when it’s time to sleep. At six pounds, the blanket is slightly weighted to help you feel more calm and peaceful as you drift off into your dreams. While chunky, this throw is constructed with a tight knit weave that will keep you warmer than other similar styles with large holes. The chenille polyester yarn  won’t peel or shed and is easy to care for. The blanket is machine washable and comes with a ninety day warranty.

7Faux Linen Curtains

These faux linen drapes are a great way to complete a relaxing bedroom retreat. They are functional too. The room darkening feature helps block out light whether you want to sleep late in the morning or take a cat nap during the day. The curtains can be hung in three different ways: rod pocket, back tab and hook belt for rings. To determine the fullness simply measure your windows width. A general rule of thumb is you’ll want curtains that are two to three times the width of your window. These curtains are sold per panel so you will want to purchase at least two panels but may need more depending on your window’s size.

8Geometric Print Curtains

Make a statement with these bold, patterned curtains. These are great if you want a bedroom that stands out. The panels are grommet style and require no curtain rings.  The blackout feature on these curtains promises to block up to 95% of sunlight and provides thermal insulation that can keep out the cold. They are also noise reducing which will increase the privacy these offer. These curtains come as a set of 2 panels, a great deal for under $40. Plus they are easy to care for. Simply wash in cold water and tumble dry on low then use an iron set at a low temperature to remove any wrinkles
