Do you feel like your bedroom is a bit bland and could use a refresher?
While keeping things neutral and simple in your bedroom can help quiet your mind after a long day and enhance your sleep, it doesn’t mean you can’t inject a bit of a personality into it.
Quite the opposite!
And to help you spruce up your boring bedroom in no time, we’ve shared five tips on glamming up your bedroom on a budget.
Create An Accent Wall
If you’ve used a neutral colour palette for your bedroom, creating an accent wall is an excellent way to add interest to your space. While painting your accent wall in a bold colour or a colour you really like will instantly brighten up your space and give it a more interesting aesthetic, temporary wallpaper is all the rage these days.
From botanical prints and geometric shapes to chinoiseries, carefully crafted wallpaper can help you quickly spruce up your space on a budget.
Also, murals are another popular way to create a beautiful accent wall and elevate a room.
Upgrade Your Bedding
Talking about updating your bedroom on a budget, upgrading your bedding is one of the most cost-efficient ways to freshen up your bedroom and make it more appealing. Not only can beautiful bedding turn your bland space into a five-star bedroom, but it will also inject personality into your space. Investing in plush pillows and carefully choosing your bedding will instantly elevate your bed area and make you want to jump right in!
If your bedroom is neutral, go for bold prints and patterns, or add a pop of colour with beautiful pillows and throws, such as our handcrafted Knitted Tassel Throw. Don’t hesitate to mix textures and colours to turn your pillows into a statement piece.
And if you’ve created an accent wall using a particular colour, make sure to add a pillow on the bed in the same colour to tie the whole look together.
Install New Lighting
Lighting can make or break a bedroom.
After all, reading a book under a bright white hospital light isn’t very inviting, nor is it relaxing.
And it’s particularly important to get your lighting right in your bedroom as this is your tranquil oasis where you get to unwind and rest. So, switch your lighting to soft and dimmed light and choose decorative lamps to elevate your bedroom.
Add Plants To Your Space
Bringing the outdoors in is one of the biggest trends when it comes to interior design at the moment, and for good reason. Plants add a pop of colour to any space while injecting some life and personality into your room. Not to mention their purifying and cleansing properties.
Some of the best plants to add to your bedroom include:
- Peace Lily: this plant is easy to maintain and will add a relaxing feel to your space.
- Banana tree: a banana tree will instill an exotic vibe in your bedroom.
- Lavender: lavender can be a great addition to your bedroom due to its soothing properties and colourful appearance, adding a pop of colour to a neutral bedroom.
- Devil’s Ivy: this popular indoor plant will give a lush feel to your space.
Note that all of the plants mentioned above need moderate to bright light and are easy to maintain.
Add A Beautiful Headboard
Adding a show-stopping headboard to your bedroom will turn your boring space into a special room.
As you’ve probably noticed, we’re all about adding statement pieces to your room, and few elements can rival a gorgeous headboard when it comes to instantly adding interest to a bedroom. While headboards featuring bold patterns can be beautiful, we’d recommend choosing a single coloured headboard with stunning details and using it as a base to define the colour palette of your room and select the bedding throws and pillows.
A simple colour will withstand the change of decor and pair well no matter the pillows, throws and bedding you choose.
