If you’re anything like me then I’m sure you’re browsing Pinterest and losing your mind right now. Making your bedroom look chic, amazing and beautiful within the budget you have can be tricky.
There are many things to consider before you start making your room look beautiful. For example, if you’re renting a place it wouldn’t be wise to go all out into decorating that room. After all, this is your hard earned money we are talking about.
Now, if you’re moving into your own place, then it makes sense to commit to this idea fully. You can go all out and let your inner interior decorator come out.
So, to ease your pain and worries, we’re giving you 6 smart and economical ways to make your bedroom look amazing from top to bottom!
1. Two Words: Soft Lighting
It’s pretty hard to get lighting right. The installation cost itself is expensive, not to mention getting it just right is too tricky. That’s why you’ll see many rented places have next to no good lighting.
You can fix that! If you already have a fixed light in the room, make use of fairy lights and lamps to create an overall soft and warm atmosphere. Soft lights can give your walls a washed up look.
If you don’t like the idea of using lamps, use a hanging lantern or light bulb. Many interior decorators prefer to keep the lighting in the bedroom to be as soft as possible. This also helps to create a mood that will make you fall asleep faster.
Side note: Funk it up by using patterned lampshades. It can be floral, plain patterns or anything abstract.
2. Smart Furnishing
Many houses have built-in furniture these days. Sure, they give the impression that you have more space in your room but you can’t carry your built-in furniture when and if you move.
Be smart, invest in a storage that can be easily moveable. There are many places where they sell inexpensive upcycled furniture. You can also repurpose your old furniture and give it a vintage and rustic look.
Another smart idea you can use is to get rid of any unnecessary furniture. Look for things that can be used in multiple ways. You can also make more room by moving some furniture on to the walls, like bookshelves or lamps.
Go minimalistic, give away or donate old clothes and make your wardrobe be full off with just the essentials.
3. Organizing And Arranging
I cannot tell you how easy your life will become if you keep your things organized and arranged.
Arrange your stuff in the order that’s most convenient for you. You can place things in a way that will make your bedroom reflect your personality and look stylish at the same time.
Mix up postcards, figurines, flower jars and whatever you think will look good in your bedroom.
If everything is at its designated place you’ll not only save time but also save yourself from having to turn your room upside down to look for one small thing.
Get rid of clutters, and organize everything under our desks where you’ve hoarded stuff which dates back to our childhood. Keep things you only NEED.
4. Beauty In Second-Hand Things
We’ve already talked about investing in second-hand furniture or repurposing old ones. This is a great way to save money and also manage to make it look more stylish.
Visit a few vintage shops, you never know what might catch your eye. If you’re into quirky and weird things, this a great place to reflect that personality.
You can also repurpose your own old furniture and give it a new look, for example, use a sandpaper to give it a rustic and faded look.
If you’re looking for a way to add a statement to your bedroom, you can also invest in some wacky and fun headboards. It could be anything, so give it a try and see what you find.
5. Bedding, Pillows, Curtains, Etc.
Other than getting second-hand furniture, the other things you’ll get within a tight budget are beddings, pillows, curtains, and some interesting wall knick-knacks.
Don’t just limit your sheets to plain colors, mix it up by using bright or dark colors, and patterned designs. These are a great way to distract visitors and yourself from a bad paint job.
Do the same with your curtains and pillows as well. Patterned curtains are super inexpensive and they help make your window look minimalistic, charming and beautiful.
For wall decorations, you can invest in some cheap frames and add your photos in them, or invest in some random art and make your wall look like a gallery.
Tapestries are also another inexpensive item you can use to make your room look chic and trendy. There are so many ways you can spice up your bedroom, it’s crazy!
6. Stylish Rugs And Indoor Plants
Rugs will become your best friends when it comes to making your room look beautiful. They’re an amazing addition and can be used in so many ways.
If your floor looks empty, lay down some rugs. Rugs give off a warm, cozy vibe and make the room more inviting.
It’s not necessary you have to have the super expensive faux fur rugs. Invest in some woven cotton rugs or layered and patterned ones. You can never go wrong with patterns and layers.
Never forget, your bedroom should also be a place where you can be at peace and relax. Set up some fresh flowers on your nightstand or hang some plants near your window.
I can guarantee you they’ll help you to brighten up your mood and make you feel good instantly.
When it comes to your bedroom, it’s important to remember that less is more.
You can use these ideas to decorate your bedroom but your whole house! Save money and plan to switch things up if you’re not happy with the way it looks the first time. Better yet, tell a friend, share your ideas!
