For most of us, renovating our bedroom seems to be last on the list. After all, you can create much more resale value for your home by choosing to renovate your kitchen or bathroom. But that doesn’t mean that it is a good idea to neglect your bedroom.
This space should be a haven for you – a comfortable space all your own. It is a place where you can unwind at the end of a hectic day or find romance with the one you love. Your bedroom should be a space that you love. These 5 inexpensive bedroom decorating ideas can help you spice up your bedroom on a small budget.
The first step is to pinpoint which wall of your room you would like to use as a focal point. Quite often this is the wall that frames the head of your bed. You can create an interesting focal point in the room by using a decorative wallpaper on this wall or an over sized headboard. This will draw attention to this area of the room and make it stand out.
Next, pay close attention to the lighting in the room. For a sensual luxurious space you want to keep the lights low. The best way to do this is with table lamps placed on either side of the bed. These do not have to be expensive light fixtures and it is easy to keep the light soft with light colored shades.
To make your bed look like it belongs on the pages of a home decorating magazine, try loading it up with lots of throw pillows. This is a simple and inexpensive way to make your bed look elegant and sophisticated. Use various styles, sizes, colors and fabrics to create the biggest impact.
Another way to make your bedroom look and feel upscale without breaking the bank is to add a seating area. If you have enough space, nothing says luxury more than a plush over sized chair neatly tucked into the corner of a bedroom. If this doesn’t work for your room or your budget, you can get the same effect by placing a warm wood bench at the foot of the bed.
And lastly, don’t forget the accessories. Affordable decorative items like photo frames, perfume bottles and fresh flowers in a vase can add an incredible amount of impact to any room. Fill your room with the mementos you love and watch your room come to life.
These five simple tricks will help any drab boring bedroom sparkle with luxury. The only downside of using these tips to decorate your bedroom is that you may never want to leave the room again!
