Add a touch of colour to your bedroom
If your bedroom is a bit dull and monotonous, adding a touch of colour is the best way to upgrade it. Make sure to start with your walls. Repainting them is quite simple and very affordable in the first place. Pick a colour that perfectly suits your preferences. Pastels are always a good way to go – especially if your bedroom is small in size. These will help it seem visually much bigger and more spacious. On the other hand, if your room is big enough, you can experiment with bright shades. However, if you aren’t willing to repaint every single wall in your bedroom, you should choose an accent wall instead. No matter which option you go for, you won’t make a mistake!
Switch out your accent pillows
Switching out your accent pillows is another great way of giving your bedroom a cool makeover. Even though it probably sounds a bit silly, the truth is that these pillows truly play a big role in your home décor. Since your bed is the centrepiece of your bedroom, the accent pillows will undoubtedly give your bedroom a new life. They will add pattern, colour, texture, and personality, which is a good enough reason to get a bunch of them. When it comes to colours, it should contrast the colour of your walls. If your walls are very bright and attention-grabbing, the pillows should be plain and neutral. On the other hand, if you prefer a neutral colour palette on your walls, you can freely experiment with eye-catching pillows. As simple as that!
Take your bedside table area to a whole new level
The bedside table area is another part of your bedroom that requires extra love. Needless to say, it can transform your sleeping area and take it to a whole new level. So, the best way to do it is to incorporate cute bedside tables that will add a completely new vibe to your room. For example, a bedside table made from rattan is a great choice for people who are all about sustainability and eco-friendly lifestyle. Just be sure that it features a drawer, too, so that you can keep your bedtime essentials in it. On the other hand, if you prefer a simple yet effective design, you should definitely opt for a lovely tripod side table. It’s more than enough to hold your smartphone, a hand cream, and a book you’re reading at the moment. Trust us when we say that it’ll make a huge difference!
Give your headboard a brand new life
As mentioned above, your bed is the centrepiece of your bedroom. So, if you want to transform your bedroom, why wouldn’t you makeover your bed in the first place? That’s right, and the best way to make it happen is to update the headboard. It doesn’t have to be as pricey as you probably think – especially if you’re a crafty mom who loves DIY projects. The best thing about it is that you can up-cycle your old headboard and give it a brand new life. All you need to do is to pick fabric in an appropriate colour and follow a simple tutorial for a DIY tufted headboard. This kind of makeover will give your interior an instant boost without breaking the bank. Does it get better than that? We don’t think so!
Incorporate different textures
If you’re a mom on a budget, you know that brand new sheets, linens, and pillowcases can be quite expensive. However, there are still ways to give your bedroom an amazing makeover by incorporating different textures. Why wouldn’t you add some accent pieces instead of buying all the aforementioned stuff? That’s right – just one furry throw will transform your bed and give the entire room a romantic feel. On the other hand, lace and detailed embroidery are a perfect choice if bohemian chic is your cup of tea. Details made from wood and wool are classic and a bit more traditional, whereas the combination of (faux) leather and stainless steel is very modern and contemporary. Just choose the best combo and you’ll see what we were talking about!
As you can tell, there are many fantastic ways to give your bedroom a makeover – but without spending too much money on it. Even though it often seems impossible, it’s actually quite easy and simple. All you have to do is to express your creativity and get crafty. Once that’s done, your upgraded bedroom is all done and ready to shine!
