Creating the Dreamy Bedroom Space
We all want our bedroom to be a haven for relaxation and style, as well as representing our personality and taste. However, getting it exactly as we want it is easier said than done unfortunately, with practicality, space and budget always getting in the way. However there are ways you can spruce up your bedroom without having to break the bank, and we’re here to help inspire you.
Make Your Bed the Centre Piece of the Room
Although it doesn’t come as a surprise that the bed is dominate feature of the bedroom, a lot of us don’t make the most of it. A bed isn’t just for sleeping in, it can really brighten up your room and plays a large part in the room’s overall style and theme. Therefore, a good place to start is to centre things around the bed – other furniture should accommodate the bed, not the other way around. Then you can go forth and pour your personality into it! If you’re a fan of a rustic look, then a wood headboard will work wonders. Introduce fairy lights, treat yourself to a characterful bedspread – this is really important to get right as it will set the tone of your room – so if you’re going down the route of a nautical theme, then start this off by a large nautical bedspread! Don’t forget to decorate your bed with lots of fancy cushions in a range of patterns and textures…
Not only do mirrors serve a practical purpose, but they look great too! Don’t think you have to go for a plain mirror, there’s plenty of statement mirrors available too and they don’t always cost a fortune. A great place to go looking is antique stores, which often sell big grand mirrors at a more affordable price.
The advantages of mirrors don’t stop there. If you have a smaller bedroom, then mirrors can help it look larger, creating the illusion of more space. This works especially well with a full length mirror too, allowing your room to appear taller.
Do Up Your Old Furniture
Interior makeovers don’t have to break the bank. Repurposing old furniture is a fantastic way of freshening up your interior without having to spend a fortune. You can sand down wood furniture to eradicate any scratches, dents or stains. Perhaps add a coat of paint to mix things up too? Often there’s nothing wrong with the actual furniture it just looks a bit tired! Having a go at this is certainly worth the effort and will save you a lot of money. Perhaps there’s a piece of furniture from another room that would work perfectly in your bedroom that you didn’t first think of?
Sand Down and Refinish Your Floor
Here at Luxury Flooring we’re a big fan of wood flooring and it’s become an increasingly popular choice in rooms like the bedroom. If you’re lucky enough to have wood flooring in your bedroom but it’s starting to look worn, then a great project is to sand it down and re finish it. Flooring can make or break a room and a newly renovated wood flooring will create the perfect backdrop to your dream bedroom.
While this is something we all know improves things but a lot of us put off, you can get much more creative than just adding a coat of paint to your existing colour. Paint is inexpensive and will dramatically improve the look and feel of your room. Why not opt for a feature wall or paint the walls all different colours? Make sure the colour you choose works with the rest of the room– pastels are a great choice, tuning into that relaxed bedroom vibe that we’re all after.
Be Clever With Lighting
Decorating the walls can be something as simple as adding lights to your walls and bam, you’ve got instant decoration. Even introducing new bedside lamps is a cheap way to upgrade your bedroom’s look. You can really incorporate your style through lamps too, with many attractive designs and sizes available. Depending on the type, a bright light can be dimmed to create that desirable cosy bedroom atmosphere.
Who said you had to spend a lot to completely transform your rooms look?
