Your bedroom should be your personal oasis, the place where you can unwind from the stresses of the day. For this reason, it’s a good idea to upgrade your bedroom every once in a while. In this article, we’ll discuss furniture pieces to help you upgrade your bedroom.


A new set of sheets

One of the best ways to upgrade your bedroom is to get a new set of sheets for your bed. Not only will it be really comfortable, but it will also freshen up your living space. For a more personal touch to your room, you can go for a colored or printed set, instead of a plain white (or another solid color) one. It’s the perfect way to express your own style. For bonus points, get a fluffy comforter as well. A new set of sheets for your bed will completely transform your room!

A new set of throw pillows

You can make your room a lot comfier by adding more pillows to your bed! If you want to upgrade your bedroom, invest in a new set of throw pillows. I would recommend you choose pillows of different shapes, sizes, colors, and textures, to mix things up a little bit. As long as they fit with the overall theme of your room, you will likely find many cute throw pillows to choose from. In other words, adding a new set of throw pillows can definitely upgrade your bedroom. Your bed will look much cozier with a couple throw pillows on it!

A cozy, fluffy rug

Another item you can invest in to upgrade your bedroom is a fluffy rug. It will give you something soft to put your feet on when you get up in the morning, rather than on a cold tile or wooden floors. Like the throw pillows, a fluffy rug will make your room look much cozier. You can even try out a rug of a unique texture, or one with tassels or fringe. Bonus points if it also has a cute pattern! It’s another way you can add some of your personality to your room. Clearly, you should invest in a cozy, fluffy rug if you want to upgrade your bedroom.

A functional nightstand

A nightstand can be as simple or as fancy as you want! If you want to upgrade your room, you can opt for a new nightstand. A new nightstand is a good opportunity to increase your storage space, as you can get one with drawers or shelves. (I’d personally prefer drawers since they can better hide your stored items better than shelves can!) This type of nightstand will be useful as well as aesthetically pleasing. In other words, a new functional nightstand is the perfect piece of furniture to help you upgrade your bedroom.

Even more functional storage with a set of drawers

While we’re on the subject on more storage, you can further upgrade your room’s storage by buying a new set of drawers. We can always use more storage, and a new set of drawers is the best way to do it. Bonus points if your new set of drawers matches or complements your nightstand. You could go for a shorter set of drawers if you want to use it as a makeup station, or you could go for a taller set of drawers and use it as an entertainment center. Definitely, you should invest in a new set of drawers when you decide to upgrade your bedroom.

A fancy lamp

Another piece of furniture you can get if you want to upgrade your room is a new fancy lamp. We all know that a brighter, better-lit room is a happy room. To make your room brighter, add a better lamp. You could opt for a floor-length lamp, or a smaller one to store on top of your nightstand. You could also choose a lamp with a circular shape or a square shade, or choose one with a fun stand. One of the best ways to upgrade your bedroom is to upgrade the lighting, and getting a fancy lamp is the perfect way to do that.

A colorful (or not so colorful!) set of curtains

Curtains are a central part of the room. Adding some fresh curtains could be a great way to upgrade your room. You could add some colorful curtains add some spice to your room, or you could opt for a neutral set of curtains to tone things down. Bonus points if the curtains are blackout curtains to let you sleep in the morning. Lastly, curtains are a perfect way to upgrade your bedroom.

If you’re interested in freshening up your room at a lower price point, you can choose to rent furniture from CORT Furniture Rental. It’s convenient because you can return it at the end of the school year, and you can choose from a wide variety of pieces. It’s the best way to upgrade your bedroom!
