Are you displeased with your current bedroom, and you are looking for some adjustments? If you’re assuming that these adjustments are costing a bomb, we’re here to prove you wrong.
You can be frugal and transform your bedroom to your liking.
The bedroom shouldn’t simply look wonderful, it should also be focused on functionality & coziness, which leads to having a good quality sleep constantly. On top of that, it should be a place where you’ll enjoy spending time & relaxing, rather than just using it for one simple reason – to sleep.
You don’t have to go on a shopping spree to have both a practical and eye-catching bedroom. With some improvising, good planning, and the right choices, you too can have the bedroom of your dreams. Here are some inspirations on how to create a budget-friendly bedroom, where you’ll be comfortable at all times – while sleeping and being awake.
A single most important piece of furniture in everyone’s bedroom. After all, this is a reason why is it called a bedroom. Fortunately, you don’t need to spend thousands to get a brand-new bed when you can simply improvise.
A common bed usually incorporates a bed frame & a mattress, and while you can go DIY and create a bed frame with a minimum effort and investment, you should never skimp on a mattress as it plays a significant role in your quality of sleep. Moreover, good sleep leads to good health, so always have that in mind when choosing a mattress.
There are various types of mattresses to choose from, and unless you don’t require a mattress built from a specific material, see our top latex picks of the seven best mattresses built for every sleeping position and improving the quality of sleep.
As for bed frames, there are many tutorials & instructions on how to reuse and repurpose palettes or boards, to create the ideal bed frame for your mattress. If you’re lucky, you won’t even have to pay for them as many people are giving them away free of charge!
Pillows & Bedding
Now that you have the perfect bed, you’ll want to place something on top of it. The simplistic & efficient approach is to select the bedding in the color that matches properly into the color scheme you imagined. Don’t settle for plain white bedding, select something unusual, with the various patterns and colors to highlight your bed.
If you want to leave an impression and do a makeover of your bedroom, don’t forget to include walls. This can be done by hanging some artwork, photographs, wallpapers, or tapestries.
Check out some of the Facebook groups for exchanging items, where you can give something you no longer need, and receive something that will fit perfectly into your bedroom, to avoid spending money on this.
A bedroom lighting is not only vital for setting the mood. With the proper placement, intensity, and color temperature, it can create a significant change in your bedroom’s appearance. The last thing you want is for your bedroom to be too bright or too dark, so include a dimmer to be in absolute control of lightning. Needless to say that you should always choose energy-saving light bulbs, which will save you money in the long run.
Another low-cost way of transforming your dull bedroom into something extraordinary is by simply painting the walls, ceiling, or furniture. This will certainly bring a new life to your bedroom, but only if you select the right color scheme as some colors don’t blend well with others.
Luckily, you can try out the new colors without buying the paint, by using the AR smartphone apps which can change the colors of all of the above on your screen.
Just like everything above, replacing the bedroom flooring can make a huge impact on your bedroom look. The common first choice of many people is carpeting, famous for its softness and warmth. But plenty of other alternatives are budget-friendly, such as vinyl, linoleum, or faux hardwood. You can always select some of those, and throw a rug on top of it.
