Thinking of redecorating your bedroom but stuck on a budget? There are plenty of ways you can add a bit of style to your sleeping space without having the break the bank. We look at some affordable ideas that can turn your boring bedroom into a stylish dreamy delight.
Use pallets as furniture
People are always giving away pallets for free or shops will have unused pallets left out the back. If you ask around, there will always be someone trying to get rid of some pallets. Pallets can be turned into a bed base, headboard or even a bookshelf. Use magazines as table legs and create a stylish table for the end of your bed. Whatever way you want to use them, you can Google online and find some great ideas that plenty of people have already used. They’re a great way to make free furniture and create a shabby chic dreamy look for your bedroom.
Get creative with tapestries
Instead of spending loads of money on wall art and paintings, a simple tapestry can really make a difference to your bedroom. Hanging a tapestry over your bed can give your bedroom a really great focal point and create a cosy feel rather than having bare walls. You can hang it from a curtain pole too, so you don’t need to buy an extra pole to put it on the wall.
Hang curtains around your bed
Always dreamed of having a canopy over your bed? Instead, why not try and install some curtains around your bed for a more private sleeping space. It’s often a lot cheaper than getting a canopy and you can pick a funky design, or a plain style based on your taste.
Reinvent your cushions
Cushions can be a great way to create a cosy feel in your bedroom. Placing cushions on your bed can add some style to your bedroom too. You can buy cushions cheaply from most places, but you can also get some cheap fabric to cover them and give old cushions a fresh look. Many design experts recommend choosing a unique pattern or match a shade on your duvet for a great cohesive design.
If you don’t have built in wardrobes, you can install DIY wardrobes to save yourself some money. You can get wardrobes made to your measurements for small spaces or standard sized wardrobes. They often come with easy instructions so that it doesn’t get too complicated. There are loads of different designs available without doors or with to create a really cool style to fit your style. If you’re really skilled you could utilise some old wood and have a go at making one yourself. Alternatively, a pole placed between two shelves can be a great way to hang clothes without spending too much on materials.
Get the lighting right
Lighting can be a great way to create a stylish sleeping space. Finding old items around the house could help to create new candle holders. Old bottles, pots and jars can make great candle holders and finding different colours can really change the look of your room. Often having bare wires instead of a lamp shade can help create a really cool look for your room cheaply. Finally, small fairy lights on the walls can be a great way to cover blank walls and add some style to your room.
When redesigning your bedroom, it can be done really affordable. Less is often more and adopting a minimalist mindset can help you choose items wisely and create a really impactful space. We’d love to hear your ideas on making a dream bedroom on a budget.
