Is your bedroom outdated, worn out and just dull? Maybe it’s time for a bedroom update, but you don’t want to spend a fortune to soak up your room. There are several ways you can give your room a makeover without breaking the bank.
One of the easiest ways to upgrade your bedroom without spending a penny is DECLUTTERING. When you clear the garbage, you will appear bigger, airier, and more inviting. And it will allow you to actually see your room and imagine the possibilities. To start with a blank canvas, remove as many furniture as possible from the room. An empty space is even better. This way, once you’ve completed the preliminary redecoration tasks. You can add important items one at a time until you reach your favorite look.
Color Schemes, Themes, Or Designs
Once the bedroom update done, focus your attention on your decoration goals. Decide which color schemes, themes, or designs you want to integrate into the room. This can be done by selecting a fabric, art print, or piece of furniture that you want to “play out”. One of the most prominent features in the bedroom is the bed linen, so I would suggest choosing that first. There are millions of patterns, colors, and styles to choose from in the bed linen, but few options that make your design great. Choose your bed linen carefully. Make sure you love the design so you don’t get fed up with it quickly. Plan to spend a little more if necessary to get exactly the look you want.
Next, repeat the walls. If you have wallpaper or a wallpaper edge that has dated your room, remove it and replace it with a solid painted wall. Choose a wall color to complement your beautiful linen, and if you take the color to a whole new level, paint the ceiling in the same color as the walls except in a much softer hue. Don’t be afraid to experiment. Paint is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to transform a space, so use it to your advantage.
As the new wall color rises, focus your attention on room lighting. Overhead fasteners often have a glaring effect, so use this lighting sparingly. Strategically placed lighting adds ambience and depth to a room, so be sure to integrate some beautiful lamps into your design. If you have old lamps, you can upgrade them cost-effectively by replacing old, outdated lampshades with modern versions or simply restoring the old lampshades in a fabric with the new wall paint and bed linen. To pull up another notch, repaint the lamp bottom with a metal spray paint or repeat it in a striking new color.
Another decorating staple used by decorators, which gives a great effect for little cost, is to throw pillows. Oodles of litter pillows in different textures, colors, and patterns add Pizzazz to your décor without much effort, especially if you restore your old pillows. Measure each pillow you want to restore so you know how much fabric to renovate each pillow. Take a key piece of your bed linen to the local fabric store and look for leftovers that match and complement the beds. Often, high-quality residues can be purchased at a fraction of their original cost. The restoration of old cushions not only saves money but also allows you to create a unique decorator look.
Update your windows by hanging inexpensive curtain panels from beautiful poles, or use Roman bamboo tones for an exotic look. To add privacy and style to your design, use faux wooden blinds topped with a valance or self-covered cornice coordinated with bed linen and pillows. If you have beautiful windows framed with beautiful design, play them on by simply adding some attractive shades. Simple, inexpensive shades can be transformed into a designer look by adding trims or frames matched with other fabrics in your room.
Before you reassemble the room, take stock of all your furniture. Choose only the pieces you really like and are in good shape. You may even want to repaint some elements to give them a whole new look. If you don’t like your bed, get rid of it and add a new headboard to your room. There are various inexpensive designs for headboards that you can do yourself.
Once all the elements of the bedroom are complete, make sure to thoroughly clean the room before reassembling the room. Pay special attention to the floor, especially if you have carpeted floors. Make sure your windows sparkle and that the baseplates and other architectural elements are free of dust and dirt.
