When you want a new look for your bedroom, but you have a small budget, change is possible. One idea is to rearrange the furniture. You could put your bed on the opposite side of the room for instance. Or in a corner, it will give the room a more intimate and roomy feel. Plus, you could add a small chest with drawers as a bedside table for extra storage.
Because storage is a concern in a small bedroom too, you raising your bed up on blocks is also an option. You’d then have more storage under the bed for blankets or other items. Additionally, you could purchase a storage ottoman for at the bottom of your bed, or for under a window. Extra sheets and bedding could be placed in there as well. Or, purchase a small corner cabinet for storage of bedroom items.
Or just painting the walls is fine; it doesn’t even have to be a different color. Putting on a fresh coat of the same color will freshen it up. Or perhaps you can add a wall paper border up near the ceiling or around the middle of the room for an old-fashioned look. You can also stencil a design or two to make an attractive border.
Plus, you can change the bedding. So buy yourself a set of new sheets, a duvet, comforter and a bedspread in a new color and style. Shams also add a little touch of class so if you can afford them, buy those too. If you can’t afford all of this, then buy only the new bed covering and matching shams.
You could hang some new prints on the walls additionally. It could be artwork you’ve painted, or framed posters or prints. It doesn’t have to be something very costly, just something that pleases you. Something that you’d like to see the first thing in the morning when you open your eyes.
Remodeling your bedroom is about having items and colors in it that you like.
