Let’s face it, no one wants to be that person who’s out of fashion. So we make great efforts to stay in style, we buy the latest clothes, accessories, some even buy electronic gadgets out of fashion, we even style our homes to be more fashionable. We would buy the style of couch that is popular these days, for example, if striped drapes were out of fashion and floral drapes were in, we’d go for the floral drapes, right? I thought so too. Now, we make tremendous amounts of effort decorating the living room, the kitchen, even the bathroom, but the bedroom gets a little less attention compared to the rest. Despite that, we do try to make our bedrooms as stylish as possible, and like the name suggests, the main focus is the bed. But let me tell you something else, other than the obvious, one of the main components of a bedroom is the dresser. If your dresser is old then all your décor and styling would be for nothing, but what you can do is put a new twist on an old dresser with a decorative aluminum sheet.
You can get all kinds of aluminum sheets for this purpose. There are the patterned versions available, plain versions, etc. Once you have acquired a few sheets, then the creative bit starts. In case you picked out the patterned version, then depending on the color of the dresser you can match up and stick a sheet on a drawer. Now color coding is very important in making the decision over here, you cannot stick a shiny aluminum sheet on a dark brown wooden dresser. Not unless you want to stick that piece out like a sore thumb. But if that dresser was in a brighter color, then a patterned aluminum sheet would have matched quite well.
Now for the plain aluminum sheet. As we have done patterned sheets with colorful dressers, now for something more plain. So lets say the dresser in question is of dark brown color, just like we have previously discussed. But it doesn’t match with the rest of the décor and looks too plain as compared to rest of the bedroom. How do we turn this around? Take a plain aluminum sheet, and apply it around the borders of the drawers. In a way you will be accenting the whole piece, and that will give it a whole new touch to the thing.
Of course if you have a creative mind then the possibilities are endless, but these were just to get you started on the designs. The rest will come to you as you experiment along the way. But remember only one thing before you dive in head first, it all has to make sense. If it makes sense, it looks good then it ok. Otherwise, it’ll stick out like sore thumb and that is bad.
