We spend a lot of time in our bedroom, so it’s understandable why creating a comfortable, cozy and stylish environment is so desirable. Redecorating your bedroom doesn’t have to be an expensive project. In fact, you can give your room a serious facelift on a budget through careful planning and a bit of creativity.
Let’s have a look at Tips to Redecorate Your Bedroom on a budget really!
One Man’s Trash…
Before you hit up expensive home décor stores, browse secondhand shops and rummage sales for gently used items. Often, they are priced to sell, so you can score some excellent deals just by hunting around. If you’re into the vintage look, this is a great opportunity to find some classic pieces. Don’t be afraid to try out new home accents or purchase something a little out of your comfort zone. You may fall in love with it — but if you don’t, the dollar spent was worth the risk.
If you love the thought of DIY, channel it into your bedroom redecoration project! The possibilities are endless if you decide to create or repurpose something yourself. You could make art to hang on the walls, put together a beautiful floral arrangement for your bedside table or even revamp your current furniture. Sometimes a nice wood stain or a fresh coat of paint is all that old dresser needs to give it an entirely new look. There are countless tutorials available online that guide you through the process of upcycling your well-loved furniture, and it costs much less than buying a totally new piece.
Allow a Splurge or Three
Many people think “budget” means “cheap.” That’s definitely not true! By budgeting for your bedroom redo, you have complete control over where your money goes. So, if you’d like to splurge on a particular item, just make sure it fits into your budget. Many agree that the closer it is to your body, the more you should allow yourself to spend. This justifies the logic of purchasing luxury sheets and bedding but spending much less on curtains or window finishings. Just decide what’s most important to you and budget accordingly.
Ever wanted to try out a bold color or pattern, but didn’t want to go overboard? Now is the time! Create interest with a fun accent wall by using a contrasting paint color or patterned wallpaper. Only modifying one wall is easier, faster and more cost-effective, but it can still change the entire look of your bedroom. If you’re hesitant about a big change, you could still create an “accent” wall with large artwork or a photo collage. Even the addition of a headboard can make your whole bedroom feel more luxurious and inviting.
Redecorating your bedroom doesn’t have to be expensive, and it certainly shouldn’t feel like a chore. You can take pride in your creative spirit and look for fun ways to pep up your living space without breaking the bank, and we’ll bet that taking on the project yourself will be the most rewarding part of all.
