FRESHEN UP YOUR BEDROOM WITH PAINT

 

Paint is potentially the cheapest way to give your bedroom a whole new look. Even if you are renting so going for something bold isn’t an option, just giving your walls a fresh coat of white paint can instantly make it feel brighter and cleaner.

 

You can get so many inexpensive paints now you could redecorate for under $50, but what color to go for?! We are loving the soft and subtle vibes of this bedroom, but you could go bold with a deep teal that’s very on-trend right now, or dapple in some even darker hues like charcoal greys and navy blues. Just be sure to order testers so you can see what the colors look like in your space – they are always super cheap and can be used for smaller DIY projects too.

 

SWITCH OUT YOUR BEDLINEN

 

Ah, pillows, are the most versatile of the soft furnishings and such an inexpensive way to update your bedroom. Switch up your pillows and your bedding when you start to feel uninspired by your space and pick different colors and patterns from your previous lot so you feel a difference.

Top tip! Overstuff your cushions too if you want to give them that plush hotel vibe. Do this by either ordering an inner that’s slightly too large or filling your cushion with two inserts. Then do the chopping technique to get them looking extra full and fancy.

UPCYCLE YOUR FURNITURE

 

A really easy way to save money when updating your bedroom is to upcycle furniture that you already own or buy super cheap second-hand pieces. There are so many amazing upcycling ideas out there but you can’t beat the cane trend that’s everywhere at the moment. There are loads of ways to turn your old furniture into a beautiful cane creation, but for this look head over to our where you will find an easy follow step by step.

 

 

And if you are a DIY novice, then just grab a paintbrush and freshen up your furniture with a new color. Replace any hardware too for even more of an update.

CURATE YOUR BEDSIDE TABLES

This budget bedroom idea actually could be FREE if you shop your own home for pieces to style your bedside table. Clear your bedside table of all those half-used eye creams and mugs you have been collecting there and put some time into making it look like more of a feature of the room. Add a cute lamp, a little pile of books you want to read, a trinket dish, and some fresh flowers or a house plant that will make all the difference.

 

UPDATE YOUR DRAPES

Drapes and blinds are the kind of thing you get so used to seeing every day you’ve stopped noticing them. So change that! Switch out window treatments for something that’s going to add to your space and make it feel more expensive. Pick drapes in a soft, linen-like fabric, and if your room lacks natural light be sure to keep the colors light too. Hang them floor to ceiling, and even go a few inches above your window to add some height, for a lovely elegant feel.

DIY A HEADBOARD

A may sound complex, but there is a project out there to suit you no matter how questionable your DIY skills are. We love this chevron headboard and if you’ve got the patience you could create something similar by covering chipboard in wooden boards.

THROWDOWN A LARGE RUG

An area rug can cover a multitude of sins – a stained carpet, a yellowing vinyl, tired-looking floorboards, get a rug over them & no one needs to know what lies beneath.

Layer up your rugs if you have the space, plus a smaller one on either side of the bed for extra texture and coziness. & are our go-to’s for bargain rugs that look way more expensive than what you paid for them.

ADD SOME HOUSEPLANTS

The humble houseplant has room-changing abilities – pop a cute fiddle leaf fig in one corner or hang a string of pearls in from your ceiling (or from bed if you are blessed with a four-poster). They add life, color, and texture to a bedroom, plus you can pick the most beautiful pots that add some decor too. And if your fingers don’t even have a tinge of green to them, remember you can always go for fakes.

STYLE UP SOME SHELVING

You can find wall shelves for under $10 at Ikea & not only do they add some handy storage but they are perfect for adding some decor. Wall mount a single shelf above the bed to make it a clear focal point, then add photo frames, books, knick-knacks, and plants too for some extra texture.
