If your bedroom is feeling tired and dull, don’t worry, it is possible to personalise it on a budget. Without a few unique, personal touches, it’s easy for a bedroom to feel lifeless, so consider these options.
Make Use of Family Photos
We all take family photos, so it makes perfect sense to use them when decorating your bedroom. But I’m not just telling you to put up a few framed photos on the bedside table, you can do a lot better than that. You could use a high definition photo and have it blown up into a bigger photo. Then you can do all sorts of things with it. For example, you could have the photo framed and make it the centrepiece of your bedroom.
If that doesn’t sound like the solution for you, you could always consider some of the other options. You could have the photo put onto a blank canvas and put that on the wall. It creates a much more interesting appearance for the photo, so give it a try. It’s very cheap to have this process carried out too, so it might turn out to be cheaper than have a high-quality photo framed.
Think Outside the Box
You shouldn’t always make an effort to think outside the box when it comes to decorating your bedroom. A lot of people fall into the trap of buying items and decorating in a way that makes the room look really boring and generic. A room always looks more interesting if you’re able to create a design that’s totally unique and specific to you and your partner. It might sound hard to achieve but, believe me, it can be done.
For a start, don’t rule out the idea of creating furniture yourself. It’s very cost-effective to take an old piece of furniture and strip and down, and then reupholster. So, why not give it a try? You could even take a piece of furniture you’ve had for years that’s past its best and give it a new look. All you’ll need is materials like fabrics, tools, hot melt glue sticks and some wood, and you can easily give an old piece of furniture a whole new style.
Visit Second-Hand Shops
Another way to make sure that your bedroom doesn’t look boring or generic is to visit plenty of second-hand shops when you’re searching for design items. Picking up old fabrics and prints can be a great way to add something a little different to your walls, for example. But the options are literally endless. In most towns and cities, the second-hand shops and charity shops are packed with interesting items.
One of the best things you can look for in second-hand shops is a good mirror. An antique mirror with a great frame can be the focal point of your bedroom if you find a hidden gem. It doesn’t even have to be in perfect condition because you can easily make a few changes to it and bring it back to life.
