There is no other feeling like coming home to your bedroom after a long, hard-working day. Adding a few decorations can freshen up your bedroom design easily and inexpensively, and give it that nice, cozy look.
With these top tips for decorating your bedroom on a budget, you can easily breathe new life into your bedroom without spending a lot of money.
Layout of the Furniture
Even though it sounds simple, rearranging the furniture will drastically change the look of your bedroom and is a very easy and cheap way to redesign the look of your bedroom. Changing the position of your bed or moving a sofa around can make your room look a lot more inviting. Best of all, it’s absolutely free.
Decorate by Yourself
Add your own touch to the room by stenciling a wallpaper. Although there are cheap wallpapers out there, they are usually of low quality. Sketch out your design on a piece of paper beforehand and bring it over to your wall when satisfied.
If you’re skilled with a camera, hanging your own pictures on the wall is a cheap alternative to buying paintings. Nature photographs belong in every room, and a little bit of image editing can add vibrancy and color to your room. Create your personal gallery wall if you have enough photographs.
Freshen Up the Floor
An old carpet or a beat-up hardwood floor has a big impact on the look of your room. If you’re up for a challenge, the cheapest option would be a DIY of the floors. Installing hardwood flooring by yourself could save you up to £400. Still, you might have to search around for lower prices.
The easier option is replacing your carpet. Find one that matches your room’s paint color and covers the floor scratches. Even though this is not a long term solution, it is a lot cheaper.
Improve the Lighting
Finding a perfect balance when it comes to illuminating your room can do wonders. Lighting should be unobtrusive. Move your lamps around the room to find the perfect light distribution. Adding some strung lights can improve the lighting and give your room that cozy, holiday-type look. If you are planning on upgrading the lighting then I would recommend getting a professional electrician to come and install your new lights.
Lastly, make sure to place some colorful plants and flowers around your room. Not only do they look good, but they also provide you with fresh air and make your room smell amazing!
