Everyone knows that a good night’s sleep is vital. Losing sleep can have all sorts of negative effects on your everyday life so it’s wise to make sure your bedroom is the best it can be. Plus a bedroom should be relaxing to encourage rest — so decor should support that! Updating your bedroom on a budget is pretty straightforward.
Some tricks for a bedroom update on a budget you never thought off…
Consider decorating one wall not four
Contrary to popular belief, the way to refresh a room isn’t always to paint four walls. You can easily brighten a bedroom with one statement wall. Sometimes a focal point adjacent to the bed, one papered wall is a great way to give the impression you’ve refurbished the whole room!
Update bed frame and mattress
One of the best ways to update your bedroom is by changing the bedframe and mattress. It can make all the difference between deep sleep and deprived sleep! A good mattress is an important investment that will last for years so you might want to even check a mattresses’ buying guide, like the ones provided by Tesco. This will show you the distinction between open and pocket spring products plus foam and latex mattresses. Definitely worth knowing about! In addition, a solid bed frame really lifts a room — and makes a feature out of the bed.
Choose timeless, soothing color scheme
To avoid having to redecorate your bedroom too often, choose colors and patterns that you know will have lasting appeal. Don’t opt for anything too trendy or ‘of the moment’ for your walls— reserve fashionable pieces for bedroom accessories like throw cushions and bedspreads. A soothing color scheme — one that doesn’t clash too many prints — might help you switch off at night more easily too.
Use paint to create tricks and illusions
You can instantly give your bedroom a boost by painting a fake headboard on the wall — or creating an elaborate surround for a plain wall mirror. Spray painting furniture in a high gloss can give pieces a more expensive feel.
Refresh the curtains
If pennies won’t go too far, a very cheap way to quickly refresh your room is to invest in a pair of bold, impactful curtains. These can be the first thing you see when you enter a room and dark or heavy curtains can help you sleep much easier.
So, by making small bedroom changes on a budget, you can really make a big difference to your wellbeing.
