Your bedroom is probably the most personal and intimate room in your home. It is where you go to rest, recuperate, and recharge.
Even if your budget is tight, transforming your bedroom can bring you real value as it will provide you with a place where you are able to feel at your most relaxed and contented.
When it comes to the price of making your bedroom look cozy, the amount you spend will of course vary greatly depending upon the scale of your project.
This guide is here to show you how to give your room a makeover, no matter how much money you have to play with.
Redo the Flooring
Just as with all aspects of home renovations, redoing your flooring can be done either with a luxurious flair or on a budget.
If you are opting for a completely new look, you could remove the old flooring and replace it with a plush carpet or floor mat or just have a dark-colored hardwood floor such as oak.
Although installing hardwood is likely to take a pretty penny out of any budget, solid hardwood is known for its longevity, so it won’t need replacements for the next 10 or maybe 20 years—making it a great investment.
If your budget will not stretch to carpet or hardwood installation, a cheaper way of renovating the flooring is by adding rugs.
In fact, adding a rug is one of the simplest ways of soundproofing a door or your wall, adding texture and warmth to a room, while also showcasing your personal tastes and style.
Upgrade Your Furniture
If you have the budget to truly indulge in luxurious furniture, then why not spring for that four-poster bed and statement dresser.
There are many ways of upgrading the furniture you already have without breaking the bank.
For example, you could replace the fixtures with more stylish alternatives, or you could coat old wood to make it look brighter and fresher.
When it comes to adding decorations to your room, people often assume that you have to shell out for an original wall painting, expensive wall clock or else just make do with a slightly shabby poster, but luckily this does not have to be the case.
Websites such as Desenio, for example, are a very affordable way to display beautiful artwork, hung in chic frames.
Not only will plants look beautiful but they can provide other benefits such as air purification or calming scents.
Soft furnishings are another great way of decorating your bedroom without breaking the bank.
When it comes to transforming your bedroom, it isn’t all about renovation and buying new items. This may mean getting better lighting fixtures.
Reorganizing and decluttering your bedroom is likely to have a pretty drastic effect on its overall look.
Start with the areas that are most visible, such as your nightstand and rehome any item that is not either completely necessary or beautiful.
Remember that the fewer items you have on view, the more put together the room will look.
Why not take this opportunity to declutter your home and organize your wardrobe to ensure that your newly transformed room will not be ruined by piles of old clothes?
