Your bedroom is meant to be a place to go to relax. Night times may be the only time you get away from the kids . The only room in the house that doesn’t contain some kind of children related objects. So it needs to be a place where you can go and relax ready for the next crazy day.Having children can sometimes means that money can become a little tight. Or like us most of your spare money goes on the kids . Whether it be buying them new clothes , shoes or taking them to places. So this leaves little money spare to update things in the house. The thing is though you don’t need a lot of money to update your bedroom to make it the calm relaxing environment that you need. Here are my top 5 ways you can easily and cheaply transform your bedroom on a budget.
Having a clutter free room can really make a difference. I hate things to be messy it really stresses me out . So making sure everything is clutter free is a must .
Take a look at the things you have on show. Be it on your window sill or on top of units in your room. Do you really need them there ? Are they adding anything to the room ? Or are they just clutter? . If the answer is clutter then it needs to go.
We have also recently brought a unit from Ikea to keep all the stuff we need organised and out of view in boxes. Everywhere looks a lot more tidy and all the junk we have got I cannot see.
Add a bit of colour
You can add colour to a room really easily . This can be by changing the bedding or painting a feature wall . Adding this accent of colour to your room can really freshen it up .
I have been thinking recently about painting the wall in our bedroom . Instead of just painting it in one block colour . I would love tape sections of and paint them different colours. I’m seeing this sort of thing all over Pinterest at the moment.
If your budget allows you may want to look at feature radiators to add a splash of colour to your room. Not only does the splash of colour finish a room off nicely but feature radiators look really interesting.
We have had the same few pictures in our bedroom since we moved in . Most of them are pictures from well before we were parents . They really do need updating. Simply changing the pictures can change how you look at that part of your room . Or you could buy new frames or upcycle your old ones by painting them. This is such a cheap and easy way to add a bit of colour to your room whilst having some of your favourite photos on display.
The furniture you have got in your room does it work . Does it take up space that could be used to make your room look and feel bigger. Is there a way you can condense your furniture. You could simply do this by going through all your draws and wardrobes . If you don’t need it throw it . If you haven’t worn it in the last 6 months,then throw it . You might be surprised how much free space you have in draws and wardrobes when you do this . Leaving you possibly with too much furniture.
People’s bedside tables can become full of clutter . Including bedside lamps why not swap these for wall mounted lights. They make an interesting focal point . Plus it clears some space on your bedside table.
Don’t want to paint the walls or not very good at DIY. Then you can easily give your room a fresh new look by adding a colourful rug that complements your room .
