Did you know that an average person spends 1/3 of their life sleeping? So, shouldn’t one be sleeping in a room that helps them have the sweetest dreams? An organized and inspiring bedroom is necessary for one to relax, because no one likes to wake up in a room that is messy or causes depression. For many people, their bedroom is the place where they spend the most time in. Which may be a reason why you would want to change it every once in a while.
Luckily for you, unlike other places in a house like the kitchen or bathrooms, bedrooms are one of the most affordable places you can give a makeover to. The reason for this is because, to reinvent a bedroom you don’t necessarily have to invest in new windows or structural objects, you can do some changes as minor as a deep clean or furniture moving, and you’ll have a remodeled bedroom.
Here are some ways in which you can reinvent your room without spending a whole lot:
Organize and Cleanse
Like most makeover projects, bedroom reinvention also starts with getting your place organized and clean. Get rid of things you no longer use or feel that are unnecessarily taking up space. Most people have their closets inside their bedroom, so it’s a good idea to start with sorting out your clothes and shoes, throw away the things you don’t use or donate them to the needy. If you like to read in bed, make sure you don’t have a pile of books lying on your side table, opt for a book shelf instead.
Make Soothing Walls
A room is surrounded by walls, so don’t make your walls depressing. Your bedroom walls should uplift your mood every time you enter the room, and provide a soothing and relaxing vibe. A great way of doing this is by painting them bright. Choose at least 2 shades, which enhance the ambiance of your room exactly how you want. There are several options to choose from, light and modern, cozy and dark or bright and ecstatic. Choose a color that matches your personality. And, if the first color does not work you can always paint another color over it.
Most bedrooms are small in size and are filled with large furniture, which is why small things like a window covering, changes the focal point of your room and gives it a new touch. Window coverings distract the eyes away from the furniture. These coverings include blinds, shades, and curtains, which are an expensive item to buy. However, you can look around to find less expensive stuff or shop from a thrift store. One affordable and simple technique is to put white panel curtains on your windows, these are not expensive and match with almost all styles. If you want curtains that block the light in the morning, but are also not heavy in appearance, then we recommend you to choose something from velvet or thick cotton in light colors.
Hang Art That You Love
Your bedroom is an ideal place for you to hang your favorite pieces of art, this can be anything from paintings and kid’s drawings to silk rugs and sculptures. Some people who are a fan of traveling, like to hang Framed Maps in their bedrooms. The goal is to make the most of whatever space you have and fill it with the things you love. If you do not like clutter spaces, then you can choose two or three of your favorite art pieces and hang them in an organized manner. Whereas, if you have an eclectic taste then put up whatever you want on those bedroom walls. There are several cheap art displays that you can find online, do your research and buy what you really love.
Invest in Good Lighting
A good room is defined by the type of lighting it has. Not everyone can get that exact right amount of light in a room, during the day or night. If you have the same issue in your bedroom, then we have an easy fix for you, which will not only give your room the perfect lighting it needs but will also give it an uplift. If your bedroom is too bright, then invest in installing a dimmer, by doing this you’ll be able to control the amount of light you need in the room. And, if you have too much dim lighting in your room that is causing you eye strains, then buy some well-placed lamps, as these will increase the visibility in your room without being too much of a light source.
These are some tips for reinventing your room in a budget. Try them yourself, and give your bedroom a fresh new look without having to spend thousands of dollars from your pocket.
