Sprucing up a room in your home can give it a new life and give you a fresh space. From giving a room a simple fresh coat of paint to redoing the entire room. One of the best places to start is your main bedroom. This is the one room you spent the most hours in and should be your own happy place. If your main bedroom does not inspire, then maybe it is time to give new life to this room.
The great news is that you can create an entirely new space without it costing an arm and a leg. We share 5 budget-friendly tips for decorating your main bedroom and bringing you back to a relaxing refuge.
A Relaxing Haven
Refresh your walls
The walls of your bedroom take up the largest surface space in the room. Something as simple as a fresh coat of paint can make a huge difference. Alternatively, consider bringing in new colours that suit your personality and environment. If you have a bigger budget, you might consider creating a focus wall covered in patterned wallpaper. Or use wall stickers to bring focus to certain areas in the room. Not only are they super affordable, but they also come off easily. This is ideal in the future event that you want to use a different sticker or just want it removed.
Refresh your bed
Give your bed a new look with new throws, or pillows. You might even consider brand new bedding if your budget allows it. If not, you can easily come away with brand-new pillow casings or new base cover. Go for bright patterns and colour if your walls are neutral colours. Or choose calming pastel colours to compliment white-washed furniture for a more romantic feel.
Pay attention to the furniture
Look around your home or garage for furniture that you haven’t used in some time instead of buying new items. Upcycle items you already have to bring a whole new look to your room. Move the room’s furniture to new spots. Other ideas include giving your ceiling fan a fresh coat of paint to completely change its look. Or easily replace lampshades with new ones of different shapes and colours.
Wall décor and showpieces for your new room
There are many brilliant, affordable decorating ideas that will suit any personality. Buy sets of complimenting wall hangings at thrift shops, like frames, plates or artworks. Or print a few family photos on different sized canvases and create a collage wall of your loved ones. There are many great palette designs that can be used to create a vocal area too.
Bring the outdoors, indoors
Fresh flowers and potted plants can liven up any room. You can use fresh cut flowers from your own garden. Or have a more permanent solution with a few indoor pots that can even purify the air! Alternatively, consider fragranced pots, such as lavender or rosemary that will also aid in a good night’s rest. These plants are also hardy. As long as they are placed in a sunny spot, they won’t need too much attention to thrive.
