If you’re tired of looking at the same four walls in your bedroom (who isn’t, after a year of lockdowns?) and want to give it a little upgrade, we have some budget-friendly ways of revamping it. From using second-hand furniture to getting smart with your storage solutions, you can give your bedroom a makeover without breaking the bank.
Paint the walls
Choosing to paint the walls is a much more affordable solution than wallpapering. Whether you want to paint them all the same colour or create a feature wall, with painting all you need is a tin of paint and roller – unlike wallpaper where you need different rolls, paste and a pasting table. When it comes to choosing the colour of paint you want, think about opting for something neutral. This way you can easily switch the colour of the accessories if you get bored.
Once the walls are finished it’s time to add the furniture. Fitting your bedroom with brand new furniture can come with a large price tag, so instead, consider upcycling old furniture. Whether it’s an unused chest of drawers sitting in the corner which you can paint and add new handles or you find an antique beauty table at a car boot that you can dust off. You can also visit charity shops to find affordable furniture and accessories for your bedroom.
When it comes to revamping your bedroom one of the most essential things is storage. Whether your space is large or small, finding smart ways to add more storage to your room is a good idea.
One way you can do this is by investing in a divan bed. This provides two solutions: Your bed gets a comfy, new upgrade, and you also get convenient storage neatly tucked away. Seeking out a bed specialist, like Divan Beds Centre, means you can find the perfect size to suit your room, as well as getting a choice of storage drawers or sliding doors.
Add splashes of colour
If you have painted your walls a neutral colour, such as cream, grey, or white, you can add splashes of colour using accessories including the light shade, duvet cover, throw cushions or candles.
One of the biggest benefits to revamping your room this way is that if you opt to have yellow candles and a bed cover, it’s really easy and affordable to switch them for a different colour when you’re ready for a change.
Move your room around
This one doesn’t have to cost a penny: rearranging the room. Moving the bed and other pieces of furniture can transform a room and make it feel completely different.
While this may take a bit of planning to get all of the pieces to fit in a different place, taking the time and effort to make the move can breathe a breath of fresh air into the room.
