Your bedroom is your fortress of solitude and slumber. It’s also one of the only places in your home that most guests won’t see, so you can really decorate it just for you. It doesn’t matter if the rest of the house is a contemporary vibe: if you want your bedroom to look more like an English garden, go for it! This easy decor is just one of the perks of decking out your sleep space. The other is that decorating — or redecorating — a bedroom is also super affordable. In a matter of minutes, hours or at the most, days, you can transform your bedroom into a place of sweet style and sweet dreams.
Read on to find out how.
Give it the Wall Treatment
Your vertical space is one of the most under-utilised and undervalued pieces of prime real estate in your home, and this holds true for your bedroom. Giving your walls some serious TLC is a wonderful way to completely recreate your entire space. We’re not talking about a few framed pics of your family or conventional wall art, but rather, make your wall a canvas with beautiful art.
You don’t have to be an artist to do this, either. There are fabulous predesigned wallpaper murals that you can roll on and enjoy for years to come. Or, if you feel like you have that artistic flair, you can try your hand at painting your own wall mural.
Get New Accents
Rather than buy an entirely new bedroom set, consider simply replacing the accent pieces. Think a statement chair, bed linens and duvet, throw pillows, shams, or a lamp, a mirror or even all of these.
Another tip? Replace existing hardware on your furniture and doors. Think handles and knobs on dressers, closets and cabinets. This is a super affordable way to powerfully and subtly give your bedroom a few look, and a new lease on life.
A beautiful, hand-woven rug is more than just an accent. Like your wall, a stunning floor treatment can totally transform your entire room. To avoid having to completely replace every item in your space, pick a rug that has complementary colours and a similar feel to the rest of the room, showcasing a feel and scheme that flows.
While your bedroom can have a different vibe than the rest of the house, the room itself should not have jarring disparities.
Even when you’re doing a major renovation of a room, much of the appeal of the place will boil down to the details: those little or seemingly thoughtless touches that bring the whole room together. And these tiny embellishments? The fantastic flourishes? They’re also some of the most affordable and simple ways to makeover your bedroom, without breaking the bank.
