How to Style your Bedroom on a Budget
March 14, 2014
It’s your one most favourite part of your house. You spend around 1/3 of your entire day here, and it’s where you are able to keep yourself calm and peaceful in both mind and body. Countless experiences are created and planned, and numerous inspirations are captured like wayward butterflies and stored within the walls of this place.
To some, it’s magical, and to some it’s simply the comforting solace of knowing the fact that you have your own space that you can safely and confidently label as your own. Yep, I’m talking about your bedroom. You might have taken it for granted, but don’t forget its potential, both tangible and intangible.
Although it’s true that having your own personal bedroom is a blessing, it’s possible that you might get tired of how it looks, which is why it’s practical to style it every now and then. It’s pretty cool and it breaks the monotony little by little. But what will you do if you can’t spend that much cash? Believe it or not, you can still style your bedroom on a simple budget – even without spending anything.
Don’t worry, these tips won’t constrict you by making you follow a very exclusive set of steps that requires strict adherence, which gives you a lot of freedom to work with.
Firstly, we have to define what “styling” means in relation to this post. I’m not talking about changing most of your furniture. Styling can be something as simple as rearranging the things that you have in your room, like the position of your work desk, cabinets, actual bed mattress, or your fancy sofa bed, if you prefer that.
As simple as it seems, taking a little bit of muscle and a little bit of time to switch around your furniture will make you feel like you have a completely new bedroom. You’d be surprised with what it can do.
Something like switching around the furniture may not appeal to you that much as you might prefer something more intricate and skill-based instead of something that requires strength. After all, moving furniture around isn’t easy.
Note that being resourceful involves saving money as much as it involves the application of creativity. You don’t always need to buy new wallpaper. You can make and apply it yourself. Now this is where your imagination can take its own path.
Why not also use a combination of old curtains to make a new one? You can also try decorating your own headboard to make it more “you.” Being on a budget might limit the way you acquire new decorations, but being resourceful will grant you a new approach.
Styling your bedroom on a budget doesn’t have to be difficult. It only means that you have to take a different approach to make your bedroom “new.” Remember that it’s all about perspective. If you’re totally fine and content with a little, you can be satisfied in a completely different level via a different fashion. Just remember to actually enjoy your own bedroom the way you’re supposed to – by enjoying every moment of sleep.
