How To Decorate A Bedroom On A Budget

There is no better feeling than climbing into bed after a long, hard day. The bedroom is a sanctuary for most of us and just a few minutes of laying down on your nice, comfy mattress can completely eradicate the stress of the day from your mind and body. Sometimes though, this room can start to feel a little off, almost like it isn’t serving us anymore. If this is the case, it might be time for a refresh, a little pick-me-up for a room that seems to do so much for us.

Oftentimes, we become used to seeing the same old decor, bed sheets, and paint colour on the walls that coming home to familiarity no longer imbues a sense of calm but instead fills us with an overwhelming sense of boredom. Even if you have a limited budget, it’s still possible to update your decor. It’s surprising what a piece of wall art, a gorgeous new candle, or a fluffy throw can do. In this blog, we’ve put together a list of budget-friendly ways to makeover your bedroom. So, scroll on to discover them all!

Upgrade Your Bed Frame

If you’re in a position to upgrade your bed frame after years of use, we would definitely recommend it. It’s the largest item of furniture in most bedrooms and this one simple replacement can completely transform the look and feel of your boudoir. May we also suggest choosing a style that will stand the test of time? A wooden bed frame is understated and elegant but best of all, it’s timeless. By investing in this classic design, you can be sure that your bedroom will continue to look good long into the future. Best of all? This simple wooden finish is sure to blend well with any future colour changes or decor enhancements you might make after this, should the mood strike you. Remember, an ottoman is also a great space-saving alternative!

Switch Out Your Bed Linen

You simply cannot go wrong by spending a little bit of your budget on white bed linen. Why? Because it will blend well with any colour scheme you decide to go with. This means it will benefit you more in the long run if you ever decide to change up your colour scheme. You won’t ever have to worry about your white bed sheets clashing with a new wall paint colour or any other furnishings for that matter. If it’s feeling a little too bland for you, you can always add a pop of colour to the entire look with a decorative cushion or two. In addition to this, you could incorporate more colour and a little texture with a throw.

Use Paint To Freshen Up Your Bedroom

You should never underestimate the power of paint. We would always suggest sticking to neutrals when painting your bedroom walls not only because biophilic design is on-trend this year, but also because of colour psychology. You want to only include calming colours in the bedroom, otherwise, you could find yourself lying awake at night full of anxiety in your red-painted bedroom never fully understanding why your sleep has been disrupted indefinitely.

Upcycling Is Encouraged

If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a thousand times, quality furniture is an investment and will last you a lifetime if properly cared for. You’ll be delighted to hear that this applies to bedroom furniture too! So, if your dressing table or bedside lockers are looking a little worse for wear but are still functioning, why not upcycle what you have? Your budget might already be dwindling quickly after our first few suggestions, so to alleviate some of that financial pressure, simply decorate the furnishing you already have. Typically, all you need to make an item of furniture look brand new again is some sugar soap, sandpaper, and furniture paint in the colour of your choosing. If you plan to update something that features quite a few drawers like a chest of drawers, the addition of a few new and quirky nobs will also help to make it look like a brand-new piece of furniture.

Don’t Forget To Accessorise With Wall Art

Wall art is surprisingly affordable and can provide that finishing touch to your bedroom decor. Whether it’s a canvas, a print, or even a family portrait, they can really add that extra little something to a space. Muted colours in abstract prints are advisable because again, they can match well with multiple colour schemes and won’t overwhelm the bedroom.

Include A Fresh Scent

8 Best Neutral Paint Colors for Any Room in Your Home

Let’s be honest, no one wants a beautifully decorated but stinky bedroom. Without daily aeration, this could easily be the reality. Yes, leaving your windows cracked in the bedroom can help to solve this problem but still, who wants their bedroom to smell of, well, nothing? Even when dressing our beds with fresh bed linen that has been washed with the most scented laundry detergents, the smell can still end up fading within a few hours. So, what’s the alternative? We believe it’s an inexpensive candle or diffuser that can emit its fragrance whenever you want it to. This simple finishing touch can transform the ambience of any room. Just remember to choose fragrances such as clean cotton instead of birthday cake to include a fresh-like feel and smell in your bedroom.

So, there you have it, it really is that easy to decorate your bedroom on a budget, especially when you follow our expect interior advice from week to week. Should you want to stay informed with our top interior trend tips, don’t forget to follow us on social media!
