Bedrooms are our sanctuaries: a place to retreat, rest and revive. If yours has been lacking a bit of love lately, perhaps it’s time to give it some new character.
Breathing new life into a bedroom with a few wallet-friendly fixes and fresh interior design ideas can instantly change the vibe and create an inspiring haven that you just can’t wait to get home to every night.
Here are five ways to transform and make over a bedroom for less than $500.
If using such a bold colour, keep walls neutral and lift them up with a fresh lick of paint.
Consider this: cool whites feature undertones of green, blue and grey and work well in rooms with lots of natural light.
Warm whites are best if your room doesn’t receive much sunlight; the undertones of yellow, red and brown make them perfect for transforming bedrooms into warm, intimate sanctums.
Weaving a bold colour through your bedroom is a great way to liven it up.
Dark green is an ongoing colour trend, so try using it as an accent with a dark green throw or some emerald cushions over a crisp white quilt set. Or, have it as the key player in your makeover.
Lamps add a sweet touch to any room in the house, but when choosing bedroom lighting keep it subdued.
Look for CFL and LED light bulbs; they allow you to customise the mood of your space.
Give your old furniture a fresh face and revamp a chest of drawers by replacing the old knobs with one-of-a-kind decorative handles.
This is a savvy, cost-saving approach and new drawer handles will add instant personality and spark to any room.
A bedroom makeover is easy when you add a new statement piece of art or photography.
If you’re opting for a theme that combines elements of nature and natural timbers with neutral walls and a statement quilt cover, keep things abstract. Go for bold wall art that complements your overall look.
