THIS is my bedroom. To say that it is a pit doesn't even begin to describe it. Nothing has been done to it for over 30 years, because my now husband didn't mind sleeping in a mess. I've put up with it for over five years and NOW it time to do something about it.
We are going to rip out the two totally dysfunctional closets and move our bed under the window where the tv is. We are putting in an 8 foot closet with closet organizers on the wall where the bed currently resides. We have ripped out the carpeting (also over 30 years old) to find what would have been nice hardwood floors but no one knew what a drop cloth was, so they are COVERED in paint, so carpeting it is. I wish there was a tv show that would just come in and make my bedroom beautiful because I am TOTALLY overwhelmed at this point.
I am soliciting advice on paint colors, color schemes that would open up the room, furniture placement, storage solutions and carpet. I do not want to refinish the hardwood floors, as they are REALLY bad. I have been looking at light to mid-tone neutral paint colors (taupe, gray, putty) and want to paint the wall with the window (where the bed is going) a shade or two darker than the rest of the room. I would also like to put in some sort of storage on either side of the bed that could also function as a nightstand. PLEASE, any guidance would be truly appreciated. I am really in the weeds with this project!!!
