A new year often means a new you! Well at least for January and February. Do you have a small bedroom and want to jazz it up in 2017 but Christmas has left you skint? Not to worry it can be done cheaply and creatively.
Now is the perfect time to redecorate as most of the shops have sales on and you can pick up discounted pieces.
Read on below for some budget friendly tips for redecorating your bedroom.
First thing’s first: get rid of any unwanted junk that’s taking up space and collecting dust. If it’s collecting dust, then you probably do not need it so sell it online and make some extra cash to put in your redecorating fund. Websites like eBay and Gumtree are a perfectly easy way to do this. You could also consider buying furniture that could have more than one purpose.
Have you heard of this trend? For those of you haven’t, upcycling is basically taking old discarded items and using them to create a product of higher quality or value than the original. So, in short, re-purposing old items.
One example of upcycling is taking old shutters, painting them and then using them as a headboard behind your bed. Cheap, creative and effective.
Another idea is to paint mason jars and put tea lights in them to light up the room in a colourful way.
Old school antique furniture is very in right now and there is nothing prettier than an antique mirror or dresser. You could get yourself on eBay and get browsing and bidding. Buy them cheaply and get them delivered equally cheap by using a website called Shiply. Secondhand furniture can be bought for very low prices and sometimes even for free!
On the walls
Decorating the walls is something you can do with very little effort or money. Invest in some different coloured paints, just remember to keep it light. If you are not a fan of painting, you can buy decorative wall stickers or stencils or you can print out cute shapes and pictures from the internet and put them in painted frames.
Think of the walls as your blank canvas now all you need to do is make your masterpiece.
Once you have established your favourite colour palette, you can continue choosing accessories to improve the overall atmosphere. Lighting is one of the key elements in interior design and a must for every bedroom. For a joyful, fun experience, LED Neon signs as offered by CustomNeon.co.uk are a great choice because they scream confidence and style, these signs are also trending all around the world. In fact, with Custom Neon, you can choose your favourite colour, font, or style, upload a text, tagline, or logo to get a unique custom-made piece. You can finally get a digital demo of the sign by using the online simulator and alter the settings until you are happy with the final result. Isn’t that great? You can even play with the backgrounds to get a better representation of its future location.
The paint doesn’t have to be restricted to the walls. Have you a wooden floor? Have you considered painting it and warming the room up?
Are there tiles on your floor? You can stick stickers on here too!
Just remember comfort and consistency are key! Have fun and be creative.
