They say that the most important room in your life is your bedroom. Aside from being comfortable and inviting, your bedroom should also be a reflection of your personality.
Upgrading your bedroom is a welcome change and the process will make you appreciate your bedroom more. You don’t even have to buy a completely new set of furniture to enhance your bedroom. There are many alternative ways to do this on a budget.
If you’re looking to change up your bedroom without breaking the bank, here are some budget-friendly ways to upgrade your room.
- Rearrange your furniture
Rearranging your furniture gives your bedroom a fresh look. A piece of furniture that was once by the corner of the room can be moved to the middle of the area. Another way to rearrange your furniture is to take out the unnecessary ones. If you think that extra stool adds more clutter, you can stash it in your attic or place it in another room.
Before you start moving all of your furniture, try drawing or mapping out how you would like your newly-rearranged bedroom to look. Once you’re done rearranging, your bedroom will look and feel brand new.
- Repaint your walls
Another way to give your bedroom a fresher look is to repaint the walls. For a minimal expense and depending on the size of your room, a new paint color on your walls can go a long way in making a noticeable change. Go ahead and paint your walls in the color you’ve always wanted to paint them. If you’re clueless on what colors to pick, head over to the nearest home improvement store to find out which color palettes go well together.
You also don’t have to paint all of your walls. You can pick just one accent wall to paint over and it would still make a big impact on the look of your bedroom. You could then add a throw pillow or some other accented decor to splash the color around the room. Regardless of whether you’ll be painting all the walls or just one, make sure that you pick a paint color that sets the mood you are looking for.
- Introduce new scents
Lighting a scented candle or burning incense sticks can enhance your bedroom as well. Scents can have a positive impact on people and make a room more inviting.
Find a scent that appeals to you and helps you relax. Lavender is a scent known for calming minds and helping people sleep, so diffusing this essential oil at night would be a great addition to your bedroom. The smell of pine reduces stress and anxiety. This scent is also associated with the happy feeling of Christmas. Whether it’s in the form of a candle, an incense stick, or a diffuser, it’s up to you to pick a scent that soothes you best.
- Add more light
Any kind of light, especially natural light, automatically makes any room come alive. Adding additional lighting or adjusting the kind of light also upgrades your bedroom.
Try to maximize your window/s as much as possible so that a lot of natural light streams into your room. You can also add different kinds of light sources such as pendant lights, string lights, or floor lamps. Himalayan salt lamps add a soothing orange glow and are known to have added health benefits, as well.
- Get creative!
Add a unique touch by decorating the room based on your personal style. You can create a couple of DIY picture frames and hang it on the wall. You can also place a row of hooks for your bags and other belongings.
It’s up to you on how you want to customize your bedroom. As long as it gives you a fresh perspective along with comfort and relaxation, you’ll realize that upgrading your bedroom was worth every step!
