How to freshen up your bedroom on a budget


If you’ve grown bored of the décor in your bedroom but don’t have a lot of cash to spare giving it a complete revamp, don’t worry. There are some simple things you can do to breathe some life into a tired space.

You can get cheap and cheerful cushions in Ikea or even Tesco that will brighten up your room. If you’re a crafty type of person, you could make new covers for your old cushions out of any material you have lying around – it’s always nice to have a personal touch!

New furniture
Ok, so this might not sound like a budget friendly option, but if you look on any of the Freecycle websites, you never know what you might find, and it won’t cost you a penny!

Change things around
You’d be surprised what a difference you can make by simply moving your bed from one side of the room to another. Just beware of uncovering a LOT of dust and/or cobwebs!

It’s always nice to have some pretty mirrors in your room. Screw them to your wardrobe doors or strategically place them on your wall so that they increase the light in the room.

Change bed clothes
Whether you want to go out and buy a brand new duvet cover or just change it to one you already have, changing bed clothes is definitely a great way of giving your room a facelift.
