When you spend every morning and every evening in your bedroom, it needs to be a space that you find relaxing, homely and personal. The bedroom can often be the one room that gets neglected and put to the bottom of the list when it comes to giving the room a makeover, and this is often due to many people not wanting or being able to spend a fortune getting it back into good shape. There are however, many different ways in which you can update your bedroom and transform it into the perfect space for you, without having to spend a large amount of money.
Have a Deep Clean
One of the most obvious yet overlooked ways to transform your bedroom from a dull environment to one full of life and energy is to have a thorough clean. Not just dusting over your books and window ledge, but throwing away any unwanted items that may be cluttering up your bedroom and preventing it from looking neat and tidy. Having a deep clean will not only create a fresh, bright environment, but it will also clear your mind, and you will know that your bedroom is neat and tidy inside out.
Update Pieces of Furniture
Whilst furniture can become a little expensive when all changed at once, making smaller, discreet changes will also make a difference to the overall look and feel of your bedroom. If you feel your wardrobe is looking tired and worn, you could look to replace it with something more modern and fresh, such as an oak wardrobe, which you could paint to suit the style of your room. Similarly, you could look at introducing a dressing table or new bookshelf, to help you keep things neat and organised as well as adding character to the room. If your current furniture works well for you, however you feel it’s a little old and tired, you could look at adding some decoupage or re-painting, as this will instantly refresh your furniture, giving it a brand new, updated look that will lift the atmosphere of your bedroom and transform it into a fresh, homely room.
There’s really nothing like a fresh pair of bed sheets, and they make a surprisingly strong impact on the rest of the room. Introducing new linen to your bedroom will create a whole new look, as well as providing you with a comfy new space to snuggle up and relax properly. Fresh linen is perfect for bringing a new feel to your bedroom, without making any drastic changes. If your bedroom is based around a neutral colour scheme, this could be a way for you to inject some brighter, bolder colours into your interiors. Similarly, if you have a bright bedroom, you may want to go for something that isn’t as bright, to keep the balance and create the right look.
Attention to Detail
The finishing touches that you make to your bedroom will play just as much of a part in the overall feel and look as the rest of the changes you make. Finishing touches are all down to personal style and preference, and whilst sticking to a theme or style works really well for your décor, you can be a little more adventurous and confident when it comes to adding your personal touches. Introducing items such as artwork to your bedroom will create a brand new look, add character and emphasise your personal style. Artwork is a beautiful way of showing your interests and passions by choosing a piece that reflects you well. Similarly, you could opt for adding some items such as books, photographs, even houseplants to your bedroom, as these will add bursts of character and transform your room instantly. Making these changes to your room will instantly create a brand new look and the atmosphere will be much more welcoming and cosy. It’s so easy to transform your bedroom to the perfect space for you!
