Change up Your Bedroom (on a budget!)

20 August 2020



Your bedroom is the place you spend most of your time. Sleeping aside, you're here when you are sick, you read here on a lazy Sunday afternoon and its the place you get yourself ready in to tackle the outside world. All of these things are super important and seeing the inside of a bedroom that you don’t really like can be pretty stressful. After all, it should be a place where you can relax!

No matter what your budget is, though, you can make some changes and I've noted down a few ideas here.

Add fairy lights

Fairy lights are one of those things that make any space look so much better. Really, is there anything that they don’t improve? Whether you put some hooks up on your walls and drape them around, or you fill mason jars with them, you can really make an impact just by changing up your lighting to some magical fairy lights. They won’t break the bank, either, so see what you can find!


Buy some plants

Plants are also brilliant for changing up any space and they won’t cost you a lot either. In fact, if you have some plant pots lying around at home, you could take them straight out of your garden! Not only will they improve your mental health, but they will also improve the air in your apartment, and who doesn’t want that? (Hello, people living in the city). Check out your options at markets and stores.

Change the paint/wallpaper

Some rooms are just brought down by the fact that they’re still adorned with that 1950s wallpaper. Whilst it works well sometimes, there are other situations where you just need to replace it. Before you do this, be sure that there aren’t any structural issues, and that you’ve looked into detecting a leak in your home. Taking your brand new wallpaper down could be pretty annoying.

Or, if your bedroom’s paintwork has seen better days, then you can also think about refreshing this. Your first step will be exploring a bedroom painting cost. Thankfully, this probably isn’t as expensive as you assumed, particularly if you shop around with different suppliers. Do make sure that you sample a few different paints first. If you buy one paint and then decide it isn’t the right colour, the cost can grow rapidly.

Purchase some cushions

OK, there is objectively nothing better than a bed covered in fluffy cushions and throws, especially on those colder days. If you want to make a big difference to your bedroom on a small budget, then this is definitely a good idea. You can buy these things pretty cheap online, or get them from markets and stores if you shop around a little, so see how you can make your bed super comfortable!


Paint your furniture

If you’re really on a budget, why not try your hand at upcycling some of your furniture? Say goodbye to those old colours that you’re not too fond of, and hello to your brand new painted bookshelf or desk. Maybe you could change the handles on them, too, if you really want to have your own personalised, upcycled piece of furniture to show off to the world? See what you can create!


So, if you want to change up your bedroom on a budget, then try out some of these simple tips to get that perfect abode!
