The 5 Best Tips To Makeover Your Bedroom on a Budget

by Sarah Ruhlman

Your bedroom should be your sanctuary; your little hideaway from the world that can comfort you when you’re feeling down. A relaxing bedroom can help you sleep better and bring you peace of mind. It’s important that you keep electronic devices to a minimum in a bedroom as they can interrupt your sleeping patterns.


There are so many tip and tricks you can apply that will update your room and give it a fresh feel, and you don’t have to spend a fortune doing it either. There are many cost-efficient changes that you can make to your bedroom that will spruce things up.

1. Declutter

One of the easiest ways to give your bedroom a new lease of life is to declutter, it. Remove all of the paperwork and empty out draws that are full of junk. Declutter your closet and essentially just tidy up your space. A tidy room can lead to a tidy mind, and that is a great thing to experience. If you can’t get rid of all the clutter because you need it, just invest in some attractive storage.

2. Brighten up the room

A lovely way to give your room a new lease of light is to play around with how you have your lighting. Whether you install a dimmer switch and adjust your light bulb wattage or go shopping at to check out the awesome light fixtures, there are plenty of things that you can do. Think about using a lower watt light bulb in your bedroom to make the effect less harsh and don’t just rely on one light – use lamps and nightlights too.

3. Give your bed some love

If you’ve never taken your duvet to a cleaner…now is the time to do it. It’s a chore that is often neglected but will be really appreciated when it’s done.  Treat yourself to some gorgeous, soft cotton new bedsheets too. A lovely design can inject new life into a room and will make you look forward to bedtime even more! Choose a pattern to add something a little bit extra.

4. Shift things around

You may have had your bedroom furniture in the same position since you first moved in. A costless and effective way to switch up your room is you play with the design and move things around a little bit. Consider putting your bed near a window, so you absorb more natural light and move a wardrobe to a nook if possible.

5. Look at some rugs

If you have wooden floorboards in your bedroom, you might want to decorate by introducing a little rug to a space. A rug won’t cost a fortune and can add a whole new dimension to a room. It’s also a great way to add color to a bland magnolia environment. It’s amazing what a pop of color can do to a room; using a simple rug to do this will give you truly surprising effects.
