Bored of your bedroom decor? You can jazz it up with some budget options. Read on for tips on painting, drapes, carpets, accessories, antiques and more.
1 Paint it up: Painting the walls in your favourite colour is the easiest way to get a great look. Bonus, it won’t pinch your pockets and yet give an instant facelift to your bedroom. You could even try painting it on your own, all it takes is a little patience and some precision. This way, not only will you save on the cost of a professional painter, but can give your personal touch to your walls.
2 Look for steals: Second hand shops and markets are a great place to shop for inexpensive side tables and small furniture pieces with character and chipped paint! On a weekend, try visiting an antique market for some rare finds.
3 Subdued Chic: White accessories always look chic, and bring a nice pop to any space. Pick these up from discount stores. It will give a clean and neat feel to your space.
4 All carpeted: If you want to replace the flooring, you can go for wall-to-wall carpets as they are less expensive than wood. Also, you don’t need an area rug, further keeping costs down.
5 Drape well: For drapes, you can cut down cost by doing the body of the drapery in an inexpensive, solid colour fabric and use an expensive fabric for the border.
