7 Budget-Friendly Bedroom Makeover Ideas You Can Do in a Weekend
For most of us, we have been spending a lot more time inside our homes for the past few months. If you have become bored with your space, it may be the best time to change things up a bit. In this blog post, we’ve rounded up some easy, budget-friendly makeover ideas for your bedroom that you can do in a weekend.
1. Rearrange your furniture.
Changing the layout of the bedroom is the most cost-effective thing you can do to give your space a fresher look. It’s free! You just need to put in a little time and energy. Don’t forget to declutter as you do this and remove the things you don’t need or want in the bedroom. This can help you free up some space as well and make your bedroom look and feel bigger and airier.
2. Update your lighting.
Lighting can have a major impact on your bedroom’s design, especially in creating a relaxing atmosphere. Fixing outdated or inefficient lights and updating fixtures, bulbs, and switches can help brighten your room, save energy, and give your space a refreshed look.
3. Change your pillowcases and bedding.
Choosing pillowcases and sheets in a color that is different from what you currently have can be the change you need. You can never go wrong with the classic all-white bedding, which can easily be layered for pops of color. And don’t be afraid to use patterns.
Paint, wallpaper, and artwork pieces can give your bedroom a new look. An accent wall can give a focal point in your space. Consider adding a gallery wall as well. Display special photos that will give your room a homey and cozy feel.
5. Hang a mirror or two.
Mirrors can do wonders to help make a small room appear brighter and feel larger. A floor mirror leaning up against the wall can do wonders. You can also opt to use a mirror as a headboard or furniture with reflective surfaces.
6. Add or change a rug.
Your floor is a great place to get creative with patterns. Consider adding a soft rug in your room to pull a space together.
Your bedroom should be a relaxing place, so clutter should be kept to a minimum. This means there should be adequate storage. Closet organizers, storage bins, and baskets can help keep miscellaneous items from piling up. If your dresser, cabinets, and nightstand need a little updating, consider sanding them down and painting it a fresh color. Installing new hardware (or spray painting your old ones) can also give your old furniture an updated look.
