The Bedroom on a Budget…

When having a bedroom that is decorated and has been that way for a long period of time, it is hard to figure out what to do to change it.  This is also difficult if you don’t want to spend a fortune in the process of redecorating the entire room.  But there are solutions for this problem and easy ones at that.  The options are not to get rid of your furniture or items that you love just spice them up.

To get started you want to figure out the items you love and don’t want to mess with.  When you have separated those from the rest you can then get your hands dirty, and this is literally.  In most cases the items that you don’t like are either just old and need a new paint job or are items that just don’t match with the rest of the room.  If this is true, paint them.  The best way to change something without having to go around looking for something new is to paint it.  It also is an easy way to match how you want your room decorated.  The best part is, it is a cheaper way of decorating. 

Once the furniture, walls, or even shelves are painted to the way you like, think of the bed.  The best option to change a bed and not spend a fortune on a brand new bed set is to just fix the comforter, most importantly a duvet.  Duvets can last for decades and can be updated again and again with only the spending your money on the new cover. By just splurging on a new cover for your room, it gives the right amount of change that you want and that can last for months or even years.

The last change that can be done is to develop a dramatic headboard that can be the bedroom focal point.  The best thing is you can make a headboard out of almost anything with some creativity. Some ideas to consider are a vintage door, wood shutters, folding screens or an antique fireplace mantel. Whatever you chose to do above your bed is your choice and using the creativity you have will make it yours and unique to you.

Also don’t forget the personality by bringing in the unique accents that represent you.  Little things such as a lamp that changes the mood of the room or a piece of artwork you want to add on the wall. No matter what you chose to put on the walls, side tables, or other furniture it is your room and the creativity that you have will shine.  And it will be all done on a budget that is affordable to you. So if you need to spice up your room, change it, but think of the low cost ways that it can be done so you don’t have to spend a fortune.
