Chances are you spend a significant amount of time in your bedroom and not just for sleeping either. From snuggling up in bed with a cup of tea and a good book, getting dressed up for a special night out and of course, those romantic moments, the bedroom is the place where it all goes down.
Naturally, you’ll want your space to feel welcoming, cosy and inviting, even a haven to escape to after a long day. However, decorating can feel overwhelming and of course, there’s the cost element to consider too. The good news? There are plenty of small steps you can take to transform your bedroom without racking up a ridiculous decorating bill.
Here, we outline some tips to help you give your bedroom the lift it needs on a budget.
A splash of paint can completely transform a room and even has the power to change how a space feels. For example, a different colour on the walls can make a small room feel larger or a large room feel more cosy.
Keep these points in mind when considering paint colours but remember to incorporate colours which reflect your personal style too. If you have a small room but love bold colours, add colourful accessories and furnishings so you can opt for a lighter shade of paint to brighten the room.
Bedding and cushions
One of the most affordable ways to refresh your bedroom is simply by updating your bedding. You can buy a new duvet set for as little at £21 and with such a wide range of styles and colours to choose from, it’s the perfect way to revamp your space for very little cost. You can enhance the look further by picking up some affordable cushions in matching or contrasting colours.
Sometimes all your space really needs to make it feel brand new is one key piece. Consider investing in one item that will make your space more attractive, such as a new bed and headboard or some fitted sliding wardrobes. The new addition will become a focal point for the room and could make all the difference in lifting it from drab to fab!
The importance of lighting in the bedroom is often underestimated, so if you’re wanting to make your space pop, consider making some changes to your current lighting. Brilliantly shining bulbs are a great choice for the home office or a room which needs plenty of bright light, but the bedroom requires something with a softer touch.
Look around for a funky lampshade or a stylish floor lamp. These can often be found for a very affordable price and can make a huge difference to the aesthetic and atmosphere of a bedroom.
