Beautiful, comforting, relaxing, cozy, and peaceful….These are the words that you would hear if you ask people to describe their dream bedroom. You see them on home decor magazines, interior design websites, as well as home renovation TV shows all the time. But the question is, have you looked at your room lately? Were you able to achieve your ‘dreams’? No? Why not?
I’m sure you would say it’s because you don’t know where to start, and worse, you don’t have the budget. But I’ll tell you right now, giving your bedroom a makeover doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune. You don’t have to hire a professional interior designer since you can be the designer yourself. You just have to get some inspiration. And to help you out, here are the best and the most affordable approaches to give your sanctuary that long-due makeover:
No bedroom makeover is complete without new sheets, blanket, and pillowcases. This is one of the simplest things that you can do to give your personal sanctuary a fresh look. With the endless options when it comes to the colors, prints, or patterns of bedding, you should be able to create a very welcoming environment.
Also, do you remember when you bought your mattress? Take note that a mattress should be replaced every 10 years, and if yours is older than that and you have the budget, it is highly recommended that you purchase a new one. Oh, you would feel and see a huge difference!
Is your headboard plain-looking? If it is, take advantage of that to come up with a unique and impressive decor. Mirrors, big or small, are a popular choice since they can easily create a focal point above the bed. You can also consider photographs or artwork.
Got an antique-looking piece of wood laying around? That right there would be an excellent decor as well, especially if you are trying to achieve a rustic look for your bedroom. Just make sure to secure it above your bed. If your headboard is thick enough, you can even display some books or even your guitar.
