How To Give Your Bedroom A Cheap Makeover
When we think of interior design we usually think of completely scrapping our existing furniture and revamping an entire room, the issue with this of course is that it raises the concern of cost. But giving your bedroom a makeover doesn’t have to be a costly affair and here are some simple style tips that will help you freshen up your bedroom without the cost.
This is one of the simplest and quickest ways to give your bedroom a new lease of life! A great style tip is to paint or wall paper one wall to create a statement wall. It is a cheeky way to decorate without having to do the whole room and looks great in bedrooms.
So you’ve cracked open the paint for the walls but why stop there? If your furniture is looking a bit on the drab side then you can always repaint it or change it to a completely new colour. This is perfect for making old furniture fresh by not only adding a fresh lick of paint but you might even want to consider adding a pop of colour to liven up a room.
If you don’t want to spend a lot of money but want new furniture then there are plenty of places you can do some hunting in to get what you want. Whether it is secondhand shops, vintage stores or flea markets, there is literally a wealth of furniture and trinkets that may be someone else’s waste just waiting to be a treasure in your home.
Replace The Old
Here is a simple trick that can do wonders for changing the appearance of your bedroom. Have you ever considered replacing the handles on your chests of drawers or doors? It is a quick and easy way to add a bit of character to a room and by changing these little details it can help create an overall more stylish look.
Is the furniture in your room looking a little worse for wear? Reupholstering isn’t as difficult as a lot of you would believe it to be. Simply choose your favourite pattern and colours and then bring on the staple gun fun! It is a great way to add a personal touch to furniture and makes it totally unique to you.
Be creative with how you use old items, whether it is utilising spare curtain material or whatever you can get your hands on. For instance placing a rug over a coffee table is an interesting and unique way to add character to a room.
