11 Warning Signs Your Bedroom Needs a Makeover

Posted on December 21, 2013 by Tim Doyle | 0 Comments

A woman's bedroom is her little slice of heaven, but not when everything in it is as ugly as sin. When you spend most of your life outside of work in one confined space, that space better be your favorite place in the entire world. Unfortunately, you might not realize how unappealing your bedroom is until the following things smack you in the face:

1. You Wake Up Frowning

A lot of people wake up in the morning screaming in fear or with tears welling up in their eyes--after having a nightmare. When you wake up frowning for no good reason after sleeping like a baby for a solid eight or nine hours, you've finally seen the light. That is, the sunlight shining through your window revealing the dump that you just slept in.

2. Your Walls Are Bare

If your walls are blank, that can only mean one of several things: you're a hardcore minimalist, you just moved in and haven't had time to decorate, or you simply can't afford anything "extra" at the moment. All are dumb excuses for being a very boring person. Do you head to work wearing nothing but lipstick? That's right. Put something on those walls, anything at all.

3. You Trip Over Laundry When You Get Up in the Morning

Do you ever feel like Godzilla stepping over little islands to get to your feeding grounds? Well, you shouldn't. That simply means you live like a farm animal. Floors should be flat, so tidy up the place.

4. Something Smells Funny - And It's Not You

If you take showers daily, your bedroom should smell like peaches and bubblegum. When a quick whiff of the air reveals odors identifiable as a sweaty sports bra, remnants of a Big Mac or an Egyptian mummy, those things are probably in your room somewhere. It's time to clean up.

5. Your Decor Is So Outdated, You Think You're Time Traveling

Have you ever stepped into your bedroom door from the upstairs hallway thinking that you've just entered Mr. Rogers' neighborhood? If so, your taste is "vintage," to put it nicely. This is 2013. Clean, sleek and modern is in.

6. Guests Would Rather Stay at a Motel

Entertaining guests at home is a lot of fun for many women. Even on cocktail nights, do your girlfriends insist on going home even when they're hammered? If so, it's because you offered to let them sleep in your room.

7. You Can't Find Your Panties

Losing a g-string or two isn't a big deal considering your annual salary. You could always stop by the Vicky's Secret down the street for more intimates anytime. Here's another secret: those undergarments are in there somewhere, and you can't find them because the bedroom needs a makeover.

8. Your Kids Would Rather Play in Your Room

Do you notice that little Timmy always finds his way back to your room after you tuck him into his own bed? That's because your room reminds him of Pee-wee's Playhouse, and that's seriously disturbing.

9. You Use Random Objects as Furniture

Do you find yourself sitting on stacks of books, eating off of a poster board balancing on empty soda cans, or lounging around on a mountain of unwashed laundry? These are all signs that you need to buy real furniture for your bedroom. Stores like IKEA sell contemporary furniture at great prices, but you could get high-end furniture at posh boutiques as well. Just sit in a real chair next time.

10. There are Flowers Everywhere You Look, and the Wallpaper is Peeling

There are two things wrong with this picture: you still have wallpaper, and it has flowers on it. Trash that garage, and put your artistic side to work by giving the room a fresh coat of paint.

11. The Carpet is 10 Years Older than You Are

If your bedroom carpet is your senior, you have a few problems. First, you need to reevaluate your sense of style. Secondly, you may have some health issues. Finally, there is probably some unidentifiable creature living in it. Scrap the rug quickly before that thing eats you.

Were you able to identify with any of the above issues? What is the eyesore of your bedroom?
