Despite what you may think, you can create a brand-new bedroom on a tight budget if you plan properly. It won’t be as simple as heading to your local furniture shop and buying everything you need. However, you’ll definitely be able to create something special if you’re willing to put in some effort. This is a great project for people who love DIY! Take a look at our comprehensive guide:
Try A New Color
Bored with your bedroom? You might simply need to try a new color. Paint is fairly cheap, but make sure you get a couple of tester pots first. Choosing paint on a whim sometimes ends in tears. You may find that after painting your bedroom, nothing else needs to be done. You could even make the room look more appealing with a colorful feature wall. Don’t worry if you aren’t a pro at painting: there are a ton of tutorials online to help you. You can even find colorful inspiration to help you come up with a new color scheme.
Create Your Own Artwork
No bedroom is complete without some cool artwork. However, nice pictures can be expensive. Why not create your own? You don’t need to be an artist, all you need is a canvas and some paints. Let your imagination run wild! Some of the most famous artists can’t ‘draw’ in the traditional sense of the word. You could even ask your kids to have a go if you’re feeling brave.
Buy New Light Shades
You don’t need new light fittings; the shades can just be replaced to give a whole new look. You can make a room look much more luxurious with the right light shades, and they don’t need to be expensive either.
Replace Old Sheets
New sheets will spruce up the look of a room and give a lovely fresh feeling. The benefits of polyester sheets are so much better than simply being cheaper, so make sure you consider it as your sheet material. Use your sheets to add texture, color, or pattern to the room to give it a new and exciting appearance.
Buy from Charity
When it comes to furniture, accessories, and artwork, you could always buy from a charity. This way, you’re doing a good deed but getting new bedroom accessories for a great price. Many people turn their noses up at charity shops, but you can actually get some great bargains in there. Just go and take a look…you don’t need to make any commitments!
Make Your Own Furniture
If you’re a handy family, you could always make your own furniture out of wood and other materials. All you’ll need to buy is the materials and tools. You’ll need to set aside some time, and it’ll probably be frustrating, but this is one great way you can stay within your budget.
