When it comes to redecorating or upgrading your bedroom it is easy to consider the major changes before the minor. There is no better feeling than watching the interior design of a room evolve over time, especially if you put the time and effort into it. With any budget and a little imagination there are a variety of ways you can enhance your bedroom with ease.
De-cluttering is free, so prior to putting your money into changing a room it may be worth organising your belongings. Before you invest in new furniture or decorations for your bedroom, de-cluttering is a vital step. Think about what you don’t use, need or want and either bin or donate these items. It may seem like a simple step but it is something that very few people do.
Whether you want to create space in a smaller bedroom or you just want to organise your things a little better – storage is always an excellent choice. If shelves aren’t an option and you’re looking for something that is multi functional, then why not consider an ottoman? It can be used to store and hide any seasonal clothing or even items around the room you don’t need daily. Whilst this style is useful for storing unwanted items, it also can act as a comfortable and cosy area to sit. Decorate it with soft furnishings such as throws and pillows to create an inviting space relax. Alternatively why not consider investing in a simple chest of drawers? Providing extra storage as well a surface to display any treasured possessions, decorative ornaments or even fancy perfume bottles.
Create the illusion of space and light in a room with mirrors. Reflective surfaces are key when it comes to enhancing a room, especially if your space is small. Not only are they great from a decorative point of view though; mirrors are also an extremely functional item to have in the house – think how often you use one in a day.
It may seem like an obvious way to alter the look of a room, but simply changing an accent colour in your bedding or repainting walls in your bedroom can really make a difference to a space. If you’re going to play with colours and patterns then be sure you choose wisely. Why not consider creating a colour palette of ideas prior to committing. Coolors is a great app for helping decide a colour scheme for your room. Think light and dark tones, solid or patterned materials, rough and smooth textures – the options are endless.
A bedroom isn’t just for sleeping in, so why not add a place to relax if your space allows for it? Accent chairs and benches are an ideal way to create a calming area to relax in. Attractive, soft and plush fabrics are an ideal way to make an inviting ambience around a modern or classic seating arrangement.
Soft furnishings are vital in the ambience of a room, no matter what your interior preference is. From rugs to throws, cushions to bedding; the options are endless and something as simple as a new duvet set can really change the overall look of a bedroom. Remember: a bed is meant to look inviting, so don’t be afraid to add your personal touch to soft furnishings.
Have fun with any changes you make within your bedroom. You may even find that you regret not doing it sooner after you see the benefits of being creative on a budget.
