Many people look at a bedroom as a place where they lay their head at
night, and we often forget that our bedroom is a place of sanity and the
place we retire to after a long hard day to relax and unwind.
If your bedroom is in need of a simple makeover then look no further,
here’s how I made my bedroom looking new and cozy with spending as
little as possible.
When painting your bedroom you should choose the colors very carefully.
Bright lively colors can make sleep difficult so go for deep reds and
light brown shades.
Changing the light fittings in your bedroom can make a world of
difference! Adding chandeliers to a bedroom may seem a little out of the
ordinary but they can add a beautiful element of glamor. You’ll be
surprised at the choice of chandeliers available at markets and charity
shops. If you find the perfect chandelier but that is not quite the
color you are looking for they can be easily spray painted to the
color of your choice.
Add candles to your bedroom to give it a romantic feel – there’s no
better way to relax than in the a candle lit bedroom! Tealight candle holders are an elegant addition to a bedroom and come in all
shapes and sizes.
Fixture and fittings
New fixtures and fittings such as light switches and wardrobes are an
easy way to give your bedroom a whole new look. Your current fixtures
and fittings can be spruced up with spray paint or new styles can be
found for a reasonable price from antique shops or DIY (do-it-yourself) stores.
Adding new accessories is a fast and easy alternative to giving your
bedroom a new look. Remember to buy accessories that clean easily,
often, artificial flower arrangements collect dust, which is hard to
remove. Pound stores and large supermarkets have a beautiful collection
of bedroom accessories including wicker baskets and mirrors.
By making these few changes your bedroom will feel as good as new – and what’s more you won’t have to spend a fortune.
