Do you ever look around your home and feel an intense craving to completely change everything? We do too. Unfortunately, it’s not as easy as that. The more redecorating you want to do, the bigger the budget is needed, especially when it comes to things like new wallpapers or furniture for your bedrooms and other rooms.
The bedroom is one of the rooms that perhaps gets ignored the most, as most of our money tends to go to a nice-looking kitchen or living room – understandable, given the amount of time we spend in those spaces. However, if you are looking to freshen up your bedroom without breaking the bank, here are some simple ways to do that.
Change up your bed frame
A double bed frame is usually one of those things that blend into the room and are not noticeable. That doesn’t have to be the case though – your bed frame can be an easy way to bring a bit of colour or creativity into the bedroom. There are a few ways to go about this, including purchasing a new bed frame or redecorating your own one. If your existing bed frame is wooden, you could paint it a new colour. Otherwise, you can also cover it with a fun fabric.
If you don’t currently have a bed frame at all, this is where you could get really creative with it. The internet is full of DIY ideas for bed frames made out of wood pieces, rattan and other materials. You can even use large paintings in place of a bed frame. The choices are endless and they can be super budget-friendly if you are up for a weekend project.
Create an accent wall
Accent walls are a great and easy way to make any room instantly more fun and stylish. Typically you will have 3 walls that are painted one colour and 1 that’s completely different. Whether it means simply painting a wall a new colour or adding some kind of decor to it, it essentially becomes the area that pulls your eye in. Most commonly, the accent wall will be the same as the bed but there are no rules – simply what looks good to you.
Now, if you are willing to paint the wall fully, you may want to choose a colour that will nicely complement your existing decor and furniture. This is your chance to be bold with it! If you feel extra fun, you can opt for a stick-on wallpaper that is really easy to apply but there are hundreds of amazing designs to choose from. Otherwise, you can simply add little accents all over the wall – for example, black brush strokes on a white wall can look very classy and fun at the same time.
Small decorative details
If you are just looking to add a pop of colour or a fresh feeling to your bedroom without the involvement of painting or other DIY work, then you can simply get some new decorations. If you do that in a smart way, it can make a huge impact on your bedroom. This is where you can play around with colours and textures in a way that not only compliments your existing furniture but also brings something new in.
Think of such pieces as plants and plant pots that are larger or unique in their look or colour. Get some new blankets and cushions to decorate your bed and add a bit of texture to it. Put some new pictures or other hanging decorations up. When getting new details, consider your colour scheme and how you can make it pop.
