Have you ever woken up in the morning, looked around your bedroom, and wanted to just crawl back in and pull the blankets back over your head to hide from it? You’re not alone. It’s common for most of us to constantly want to decorate and design our favorite living spaces and bedrooms seem to be the place we want to re-design the most.
This urge to redesign the bedroom is probably because the bedroom is the first thing we see each morning when we wake up, and the last thing we see each night too. We can’t help but become tired of it or find it boring after seeing it so often. We decide we want a new design style, or we get sick of seeing a certain color, or maybe we decide it’s just been around way too long.
So we start dreaming of new bedroom design styles and themes. Planning in our minds all the wonderful stylish changes we could make. Then we remember: Creating a new design for the bedroom isn’t always cheap. When this thought hits you though, take heart. Sprucing up your bedroom design style doesn’t have to cost a fortune. In fact, there are many cheap and easy things you can do to reinvigorate your own bedroom design.
1. Wall Designs – One of the quickest, easiest, and least expensive ways to update the look of your bedroom is to simply change the walls. If you use paint, try a new color. If you want a major change, take a look at covering the entire wall with wallpaper. For smaller changes try putting a new coat of paint in place and then adding a wallpaper border instead.
You could even try painting designs on the wall, using stencils or geometric shapes. Notice the walls in the picture at the left? They’re painted with different colored stripes.
2. Bed Designs – In the bedroom, your bed is usually the focal point. And you can change the entire look of the room just by changing what you have on your bed. Putting pretty pillows in place makes a dramatic and immediate difference for the entire look and feel of a room, and it’s very inexpensive to buy a few pillows that compliment each other in either style or color.
The bed comforter or duvet cover is another easy way to change the look and style of your bedroom. It can be a plain neutral color like the one shown in the photo, or it can contain the base for your bedroom’s new color scheme and design style.
3. Window Designs – One of the greatest things about decorating the interior of your house windows is that there are no rules! You can drap lacy fabric artfully over a stylish curtain rod, or you can put in a full fledged designer curtain system. The interior of your house windows look their best when they’re designed as room accents though, so as long as you have privacy issues covered, feel free to experiment with different ways to style your windows in the bedroom. You may be surprised at how stylish the final results look.
So there you have it: Three cheap and easy ways to update your bedroom design style. Dress up the walls, dress up the bed, dress up the windows and poof! You’ll now be waking up with a wide smile every time you see the gorgeous new look you created.
