Cheap ways to improve your house
What room represents you the most and where do you spend most of your time? The answer is, your bedroom! Your bedroom is the last place you see before you go to sleep and the first place you see when you wake up. Your bedroom defines you and if you actively choose what your bedroom looks and feels like this will reflect positively on your well-being.
There are a few simple tricks and tips for giving your bedroom a makeover on a budget. First, you need to ask yourself what sort of bedroom do I want? Do I want it warm and cozy with deep colors or do I want it bright and airy with a lighter pastel color?
Repaint your bedroom
Re-painting your bedroom is one of the best ways to make a real dramatic change on a budget. You should choose a color palette first that reflects what sort of room you want. Painting the whole room one color and then choosing one wall to paint a different color or a pattern is a great way to add life to your bedroom.
Upgrade your bedding
You may be surprised how much of a difference this will make to your room! Instead of having to buy a few different sets of duvet and pillow covers it may be more cost-effective to find a throw over or blanket and a couple of decorative cushions for your bed. Make sure these match your theme and color palette.
Up cycling is essentially using something that you already have. Itâs a great way to be creative and find something personal that will fit your new room! It could be as simple as framing a picture from a magazine or a poster that will fit in nicely. It could just as easily be a piece of furniture thatâs already in the house that you feel would be suitable.
Adding a plant always gives a really nice finish to a room. It makes it fresher and more alive! A floor plant can be really nice if you have space otherwise, one or two small plants can sit on the windowsill or a shelf. If you donât fancy the idea of looking after a plant you might forget to water, then cacti can be a really good choice. Most Cacti need little to no attention and some have really beautiful flowers.
Whatever you decide to do, giving your room a makeover has the potential to change your daily outlook and will give you a nice opportunity to express yourself however you like!
