Are you needing to re-decorate your bedroom but on a strict budget? No worries, here are a few great ideas and tips to help get you started on re-decorating your bedroom at a fraction of the cost.
Where to Spend the Most and the Least
If you plan on re-decorating the entire room with new furniture, wall paint, bedding, and accessories then budget out where the bulk of your money will be spent. I recommend spending the most on the big things that will last, such as your bed, mattress, dresser, armoire, and bedding (which consist of bed sheets, comforter, and sleeping pillows). While all the small things--like your lamps, side tables, accent or decorative pillows, wall paint, and decorative accessories--can be cheap and replaced later without any regret.
Invest in White Bedding
The most sensible and best way to save money when decorating a bedroom is your bedding. I always recommend to my family, friends, and clients to purchase white bedding, duvet, or comforter sets. This will leave a clean, fresh look every time and can be mixed-and-matched with any color, scheme, and style throughout the years. Try to invest in a nice, well-constructed set so it'll last and pay for itself over time and use.
Re-use or Re-furbish Old Furniture or Pieces
The most cost effective way to re-design a bedroom is to re-use old furniture and accessories. Whether you find it cheap at a flea market or decide to use your current pieces of furniture; a nice, fresh coat of paint along with new hardware will create a trendy, modern piece for your bedroom. When shopping for used furniture pay attention to the construction of the piece and lines versus concentrating on the finish, color, or hardware since all of that can be changed. Always be creative when looking for furniture, a well-constructed china cabinet can be used as an armoire or an old rustic stool can be used as a side table.
These few ideas will surely have you on your way to decorating your bedroom without the high cost. To find more decorating tips on a budget; check out the articles listed below:
