Tips On Decorating Bedrooms On A Budget
Pillows are arguably the one item in your bedroom with which you can have the most fun, without having to spend too much. You can buy yourself colorful and embroidered pillows of various shapes and sizes. If you’re not willing to spend too much on pillows, you can always buy fun and vibrant pillow covers. Take this for a fact — colorful pillows or pillow covers can make a boring bedroom with plain colored walls and sheets look all that more interesting. On the other hand, if your bedroom is blessed with a lot of color, but your pillows look as boring as a history book, the whole purpose of decorating a bedroom is as good as gone. So make it a point to give your pillows a lot of attention, feel free, go wild, they’re what you rest you’re head on, after all!
Bedding makes up for the trickiest part of your bedroom. You really have to handle it with care and caution. The best way to solve the puzzle is to invest in a bed that’s not too fancy, but then make it a point to play around with the bedspreads and have a ‘bed skirt’. Get yourself a simple mattress, but attempt to go a little over the top when buying the cover for the mattress. Covers are definitely cheaper than mattresses. Feel free to play around with different colors and textures, but stay within the limits of your budget. Also, make sure the colors on the mattress go with the colors on your pillows. Failing to meet this requirement will definitely undermine your efforts to make your bedroom look good.
You don’t need to repaint your walls to make them look good. All you need is your creativity and ‘know-how’. You can call over a friend and ask him or her to draw graffiti on your bedroom walls. He or she will be more than glad to help out. You can also pay a visit to sales or stores that sell products at a discount. Once there, look around, hunt for products you think will look good on the walls of your bedroom. Mirrors, pictures, photo frames, posters, or simply anything you think will add to the looks of your bedroom wall. However, try not to buy too much ‘junk’. Since most products at sales are cheap, it’s easy to buy items that may not do justice to the purpose. Don’t be impulsive, look at the product, picture it on your bedroom wall and if you think it’ll look good, go for it!
Accessories are the key to decorating a bedroom on a budget. You don’t really need to spend much when accessorizing your bedroom. You just need to look around your house for items you can exercise your creativity on. Worst case scenario — you’ll have to go to the store to buy a few basic products. You can make candles at home, or even buy inexpensive but good-looking candles from a store. You can wash, clean and place in your bedroom candle stands that you don’t really use. You can also look for any dolls or action figures in your house. If you don’t have any left behind from your childhood days, you can always go to a store and buy a few dolls or action figures for cheap. Place them in a highly visible place in your bedroom and you’ll have a bedroom that looks both playful and homely. You can even experiment with colorful and cheap rugs. However, these are just suggestions. It’s all up to you and what you’re looking for. Accessorize your bedroom after considering your own tastes and preferences and yet staying well within the limits of your budget. Happy decorating!
