Are you getting bored of your bedroom? Is it looking tired, un-cared for, and a complete mess? If so, why not put aside some time to revamping it? It doesn’t have to cost a lot of money, and you can get a real luxury feel just by taking away the clutter and adding a few key pieces. Let’s go through how to do it.
Go to your bedroom and pick everything up that shouldn’t be there. Put is somewhere else. Your bedroom should be a sanctuary, not a stockroom. Have a look at your storage options and see what you can get for a reasonable price. Do you have shoes strewn all over the place? These racks from Ikea are a slimline option that will fit into the smallest bedroom. You could even make some space in your wardrobes so that the bottom area is used more efficiently. Anything you can do to keep clutter out will transform your bedroom, so take your time to sort it all out!
Upgrade Your Bedding
No matter how old your bed is, a new set of bedding sheets and covers can lift it to luxurious levels. If there is one area that it is worth investing in it is bedding. Look for the softest, most comfortable fabric that you can buy and your night’s sleep will match any that you can get in a five-star hotel. And don’t forget to find some great pillows. Nothing screams ‘comfort and luxury’ than your head feeling like it is being held up by clouds.
Check Your Carpets
There are a few things you can do to your carpets and flooring that don’t have to cost a great deal, but will give your bedroom a boost in the image department. First of all, check for any carpet stains. If they are too deep for an average cleaner, then hire an industrial machine to clean them. If that doesn’t work, think about taking the carpet up. Exposed wooden boards need sanding and finishing with wax but once done, they will look magnificent. You can find some more useful information in our guide to keeping your wooden floors looking brand new.
Add A Lick Of Paint
Any room can benefit with a lick of paint, and it will give your bedroom an instant lift. Think about whether you want a single colour or use lighter shades to highlight one particular area of the room. You could also buy a small amount of high-quality wallpaper to stick up somewhere. There’s no need to go overboard, but again, it can draw the eye to a particular area.
Search your local charity shops or antique markets for high quality but well-priced pieces. Try and stick to some sort of theme that will run through your bedroom. You don’t even have to spend any money at all, either. A few hours walking around a beach will usually pick up some lovely distressed woods or unique stones that will look fantastic.
Once you have done all that, lie back, relax, and enjoy your new bedroom. Now it’s just a case of keeping it like that!
