Our bedroom is our safe haven, it’s where we relax at the end of the day, it’s where we go for privacy, and because it’s where we sleep, we spend a good third of our life in our bedroom. So why not make your bedroom perfect? It doesn’t have to involve a complete renovation and it doesn’t have to cost the Earth, there are lots of small and cheap ways that you can dramatically improve your bedroom.
Here are some of the many cheap and easy ways you can upgrade your bedroom:
Paint the room in one colour
By simply repainting your room to make it all one colour you create a much cosier feeling bedroom.
By adding wallpaper to just one wall you can completely transform the bedroom and create the wow factor.
What you put on your bed can really make the difference to how the room looks and feels. Luxury bedding, which doesn’t have to be expensive, can make the room feel sophisticated and elegant, not to mention comfortable and cosy.
Okay, this will cost a little more than bedding, but a new bed doesn’t have to be expensive, especially if you find a good value bed company that regularly has fantastic sales on, like Summer Sales, for example.
One way to freshen up the look of your bedroom, if you have wooden floors, is to hire a wood finisher to polish and rejuvenate your old wooden floors.
Plants can really make a difference when it comes to the feel of a bedroom, adding just one or two potted plants in the room can inject a fresh lease of life into it.
Use a stain remover to remove any stains from the rugs and fabric in your room, you’d be surprised how much dirt fabric collects over the years and this can make the room look dull, old and dusty. Removing all the stains and rejuvenating the fabric in a room can really lighten it up.
Replacing the handles on your furniture can make them look almost as good as new. This change, although small, can make a massive difference to the feel of the room.
Add floating shelves to the room and use these to store decorative items that you’d like on show to accentuate the design of the room. Things like ornaments, photo frames, and candles are some of the many things you could display on these shelves.
Add an Edison Bulb
It sounds small and insignificant, but just changing the bulbs in your room to Edison bulbs can really change the ambience of the room. Edison bulbs work on a lamps that have varying dimming functions.
How much you enjoy your room doesn’t just depend on how the room looks, your other senses are important too. Scents, for example, can massively impact how much you enjoy a room, which is why scented candles make such a difference.
Liven up the walls in your bedroom by adding digital prints. Digital prints are relatively cheap and they come in a variety of different styles, so you are sure to find something that will match the décor of you room.
Adding furniture legs to your furniture can create the illusion of more space in your room, as well as freshening up the feel of your room and helping unmatching furniture to look more uniform.
Mount your TV
By mounting your television onto the wall you give yourself more space on your surfaces, as well as improving your television viewing experience. Televisions on walls are synonymous with modern rooms, so this simple act can really make your room feel more contemporary.
Add a Mirror
Mirrors are a fantastic addition to the room because they bounce the light around, making the room feel brighter and appear bigger.
A Pillow Sham
All you need to do to create a pillow sham is add a few new pillows, its very simple, but again it can really make a difference.
Ditching the tension wire for a curtain rod makes the room look ‘finished’, and adding the curtain rod a couple of inches higher than your window will make your room appear higher and bigger.
Do just one of these ideas and you will notice the difference, do more than one and your bedroom will start to feel brand new, making it the perfect place for you to retreat and relax.
