The bedroom might not be the room where we spend most of our free time during the day, but it is still the most intimate place of your home. It is not only the place to go when you want to call it a day, but it is also a place for relaxation and romance.If you are thinking about redecorating your house, your bedroom is where you want to start. The good news is – you don’t have to spend a fortune to make your bedroom look stylish and unique.
Here are some of the best tips for decorating your room on a budget!
Rethink the Space
Sometimes, moving the furniture around might not only give you more free space, but it can also make you feel like in an entirely new room.
The bed is obviously the centerpiece of your bedroom, so positioning it on a new spot will give the room a quick makeover.
And speaking of the bedroom…
Make Your Own Headboard
Headboards can be a breath of fresh air for your entire bedroom. However, when restyling your bedroom on a budget, you will soon learn that trendy headboards might be much more expensive than you are willing to pay.
Instead of paying for a new headboard, why not get involved in a bit of DIY? Making your own headboard will cost you less and the final result will be something truly unique! Your own little masterpiece! Plus, it can be a great family activity, especially if you want to spend some quality time together!
When doing your headboard, you can either start completely from scratch or use your existing headboard and upgrade it by overlaying it with new fabric and adding decoration.
According to the Sleep Foundation, your bed sheets need to make their way to the trash can every 2 years. This not necessarily mean that you can’t keep them for longer, but they will start to wear out and sleeping on them will not be so enjoyable anymore.
So when was the last time you bought bed sheets? If you had those boring white sheets for a long time, it is time for an upgrade.
Not only it will feel good to lie down on your new, premium bed sheets, it will also make your bed look much more stylish and inviting.
Invest in premium beddings that are not only trendy but are also made from high-quality materials.
Paint the Walls
Changing the color of the walls in the bedroom is the easiest way of taking your room from 0 to 10 in no time.
White walls are boring! Why not bring a bit of color in? Painting only one wall in a different color will give your bedroom a completely new outlook.
Painting your bedroom walls is not a complicated task. You can even go to the next level and do some geometric decorations. That’s the top trend of the season, it looks amazing and unique and it can easily be done by using masking tape.
Think About the Lighting
Look at all the lamps in your bedroom. Do they match, or do they look nothing alike?
Keeping the same style of your lamps will instantly make your bedroom look like one cohesive composition. You don’t even need to replace the lamps. Just buy new lampshades and replace the old ones!
If you want to add a touch of color, you can buy different colors of the same shade design. Just make sure that the colors go well together and that they will match the rest of the colors in your room.
Use What You Have
All of us are hoarders in different situations. That’s not necessarily bad, especially now when retro and vintage looks are coming back on a large scale.
Think of old items that you have forgotten about and see if you can use them for decoration. Do you have an old wall clock that just gathers dust in the attic? Take it out, clean it and give your bedroom a vintage look.
Even if you are not looking for decorative items, it’s still a good idea to see what you have. Bottom line, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. Sell your old items at a garage sale or on a website like eBay and spend the money to style your room!
Restyling your bedroom doesn’t need to cost a fortune! You just need a bit of free time, few tools and your creativity. You can easily make your bedroom look luxurious if you dedicate a bit of time and effort to it!
