Maybe it’s time your bedroom deserved a makeover, but you just can’t bring yourself to pay for a brand new interior or even new furniture! There are certainly ways you can fresh up your bedroom without having to spend a penny or very little! Here’s a few tips to get you started…
If you’re creative and into your D.I.Y, then making your own headboard is a really enjoyable and free way of incorporating your style into your bedroom. A wood headboard is always a classy look, or upholstery for something a little more personal and homely. You can even use left over wood flooring to create your new headboard - the best part is that wood is classy and goes with every interior style!
We’d always recommend introducing a rug into your bedroom, even if it’s just for comfort. But there’s no reason you can’t have a bit of fun with a new rug, go for something that’s going to add character! Not only do rugs help with insulation but add warmth and comfort to your room, after all the bedroom needs to be the most comforting room in the home! This is your chance to really show off your style with a rug - even make your own! Rag rugs are fantastic and the best part is you can make them yourself and choose whatever colours you want - they’ll really brighten up your room! A fluffy rug will really add to the contemporary look or a wicker rug for a rustic feel.
Pictures on the wall is another great way of personalising your bedroom and adding that desirable individuality, colour and and feel. You don’t even need to bother with frames, arranging them in shapes and patterns can work just as well.
Fairy lights…you can’t beat them! They cost next to nothing and will really give your room that special glow (pardon the pun). They’re famous for making your room feel cosy and once more they come in so many colours as well as different shapes and sizes. Why wouldn’t you?
This might sound obvious but rearranging your furniture can make your bedroom feel like a totally different place! We all get bored of our surroundings and need to spice things up and this is a totally free way to make your room feel fresh! Have a look at what furniture you have in other rooms, it might be that there’s something perfect for your bedroom that’s from another room!
De-clutter! There’s nothing more therapeutic than getting rid of old clutter and things you’ve not used in years. The saying ‘less is more’ couldn’t be more true when it comes to the interior. Clutter builds up naturally in our homes, so avoid anything unnecessary! Remove old ornaments that take up surface space, clear out your out of season clothes and ones that don’t fit.
Wall hangings - our favourite! They’re really in right now and will bring your room to life! They cost next to nothing and usually cover a large space, perfect if your wall is a bit grubby or could do with a paint! The best thing is you only need one, an instant way of giving your bedroom extra charisma.
