Looking to re-vamp your bedroom in a cost effective way? Re-doing your bedroom does not need to cost you an arm and a leg. Simple changes can make you feel like you have a new space. We are here to show you the best way to get started and give you easy and simple tips on how to make sure that you get the best out of your bedroom with easy and affordable steps.
Clean your room
Rid the bedroom of anything that isn’t conducive to relaxation or romance, including the TV — research shows that having one in the boudoir hinders sleep. At the very least, hide any stress-inducing clutter in a stylish container.
Change your bedding and consider getting an extra quilt
If you don’t already have one, consider a duvet or comforter. A new duvet cover and matching shams can help create a whole new look, which means that going from graphic to girly, modern to classic, primary to pastel, can be accomplished in a snap.
Move your furniture around
Even a slight shift in a room’s furniture can add new life to familiar areas, so don’t be afraid to shake things up.
Invest in a Rug
To create a more pulled-together look. One warning: be sure to choose one that’s large enough to tuck under the bed and at least one other piece of furniture.
Dress up the dresser
Wallpapering or painting the front of a dresser or nightstand drawers is an easy way to incorporate new color and design elements. An accent of floral paper can convert a previously dowdy dresser into a feminine classic.
Dim the lights
Keep bedroom lighting subdued. Nightstand lamps or wall sconces should be close enough for bedtime reading, but use three-way bulbs so you can adapt the wattage to your needs or mood.
