Are you tired of looking at your same old bedroom? Do you want to change its look but don’t have much money to spend? Don’t worry, as there are ways to redecorate your bedroom on a budget.
Here are some of them:
1. Rearrange your furniture
The cheapest way to change the look of your bedroom is to rearrange your furniture. Even if you’re just putting your bed, desk, and dresser in a different place, it’s an excellent (and no expense) way to make your bedroom look and feel different.
2. Install stick-on wallpaper
If your parents won’t let you paint your bedroom walls or your lease says you can’t modify anything in your apartment, you can still change the look of your walls using stick-on bedroom wallpaper. Unlike paint or regular wallpaper, this type of wallpaper can be installed and removed fairly easily–and without leaving any residue.
3. Hang artwork
Do you want your bedroom to look more mature and sophisticated? If so, it’s time to take down those posters from your wall and replace them with framed artwork, pictures, and tapestries.
Another no-cost way to upgrade or redo your bedroom is to declutter. Get rid of anything that you don’t need from your room, such as old clothes, furniture, books, toys, obsolete electronics, and anything else that you no longer use. You can throw these items directly into the trash can, but if they are still presentable, you can donate or sell them.
5. Lay down a rug
There are lots of low-price rugs available in most department stores. Pick out one that goes well with the rest of your room, particularly the color of your walls and furniture.
6. Paint a mural
If you have great artistic skills and can paint on the walls without consequences from your landlord (or parents), paint a mural on one of the walls in your bedroom.
7. Hide your stuff
Do you want to have a minimalist bedroom? Or simply just want to get rid of visible clutter? Either way, having hidden storage is an excellent way to clear up space in your bedroom. For example, hide drawers underneath your bed, organize your closet to make more room for stuff, and store stuff in storage boxes so they don’t collect dust.
8. Buy cheap furniture
Find cheap or discounted furniture from yard sales, outlet stores, secondhand shops, or even from your friends and family. If you buy used furniture, buff up their appearance by making small repairs, repainting, polishing, or revarnishing.
9. Buy new linens
You’d be surprised at how much a new set of bed sheets or curtains can change the appearance of your bedroom. But if you don’t want to spend on new sets, try using the ones you never or barely use.
A bedroom is the number one place to rest, engage in hobbies, and recreate. But if we spend a lot of time in our rooms, it can get a little boring. Fortunately, you can try these creative yet inexpensive ways to change the look of your bedroom. Although you don’t have to spend much, these tips can make a big difference.
