Decorating a bedroom on a budget

How to Decorate a Bedroom on a Budget

Have you walked into your bedroom and thought, “Isn’t it time I redecorated?”. Your bedroom units could be showing their age or you might need some replacement wardrobe doors. You have possibly just moved into your dream home but the bedroom needs a little work. The thought of decorating a bedroom can be quite exciting but your budget might not share your enthusiasm. Luckily, we’re here to share our tips on how to decorate a bedroom on a budget.


A lick of paint

Easily the most inexpensive way to decorate a room is through painting. Every wall needs care and attention to give the room some life. You will agonise over the colour scheme to make sure it’s comforting enough for you after a long day. You might be wanting to really show off by going for an intense shade or even a two-tone scheme that is the epitome of glamour. Whatever style you choose, the most important thing to know is that whatever you do, it will not stretch your wallet too far.


Finding the right bedroom units

Bedroom units and wardrobes create a real statement about what your bedroom is about. While they have practical uses (such as keeping your bedroom tidy and banishing the floordrobe), they are also designed with style in mind. Whether you are looking for ice bespoke bedroom wardrobes or a spacious drawer unit, there are plenty of fits and styles to choose from. Maybe you’re used to a single wardrobe and have been looking at a double or you have a standard height unit but could easily fit a tallboy. Considering a made to measure bedroom wardrobe can also help save on your budget so you don’t overspend on something that isn’t the right fit for your bedroom.


Replace your wardrobe doors

Replacement bedroom wardrobe doors are an excellent way of saving money. They can completely change the entire look of a bedroom for the fraction of the cost of redecorating. You can find the right style to match your tastes – from more traditional shaker or woodgrain options to contemporary slab or handleless styles. Even if you don’t ultimately like the bedroom doors you choose, you can replace them again with little expense.


Mix up your bedroom layout

Buying completely new items for the sake of decoration can lead to catastrophic overspending. It can also leave you with a room you like even less than before. Maybe you have exactly the right combination of items but the incorrect layout. Why not spend a Sunday afternoon moving things around and seeing if it makes a difference? You won’t believe how much space you could create by moving a unit or two around. After all, it won’t cost you a penny, just some of your time.


Light up your room

Another way of using what you have is to look at the lighting in your bedroom. It is vital to get this right as lighting dictates an entire mood of any space. Your lampshade might not let enough light out or in. You may only have one bedside lamp and adding a second could change the dynamic of the room. Perhaps there is not enough natural light during the day  and you need to rethink your choice of window decoration. The key here is to experiment, as as it will cost you little to modify.


Invest in artwork

Sometimes a piece of art can spruce up a bedroom. It can say a lot about the room and about yourself by giving it some character. There are lots of places where you can pick up artwork whilst also being frugal with your funds. Alternatively, you could also invest in a pre-framed wall decoration or a beautiful wall poster that makes your bedroom stand out from the rest. If your hands are crafty, use your hobby to create a beautiful set-piece for the wall, that you will feel immensely proud of.


Find the perfect bed

The centrepiece of the bedroom is, of course, the bed. It’s easy to struggle over the right design for the room but if it doesn’t start with the bed, then you will not get the consistent aesthetic you are looking for. On the inside, are you looking for a soft mattress or something more firm? A classic spring build or memory foam? Style wise, have you thought about your quilt and how it will look? It doesn’t have to cost a lot to get the right bedspread to match the style of your room. If you shop around, you can find the right fit for the right price.
