5 Tips for Redecorating Your Bedroom


Our bedrooms are the rooms we spend the most time in throughout our lifetimes and as such are the most important to get right. Nobody wants to wake up in a room that is drab, boring or that doesn’t match one’s personality, and indeed our bedrooms should be places that we want to jump up into instead of being so terrible that all we want to do is bury our heads in the covers! If you think your room is in need of a redesign, here are five helpful tips to help you on your way to bedroom bliss!

 Wall Quilts

Whilst many might go for the traditional wallpaper or paint route to changing the look of their bedroom, for those on a tight budget this simply might not be an option. A cheaper- and somewhat ‘cooler’- way to spruce up your room is to get hold of a lovely graphic quilt or cover, hanging it on an area of your wall that is in dire need of de-blanking!

 Get New Bedding

One of the imperatives for many that want to redecorate their bedrooms is the need for new bedding. An old, spring-laden mattress is okay, but will likely become annoying as the back pains and sleepless nights take their toll. After you’ve got your new bed or mattress, be aware however; anyone who has ever lived in a student area will know the pox that is old mattresses cluttering the streets, and it’s best to take advantage of recycling services if you want to upgrade your bedding.

 Poster Power

We’re not talking about the kind of posters you’d get as a teenager, but posters in general; art prints, landscapes, photography etc; are wonderful for bedrooms being done-up on any budget. Sites such as AllPosters have thousands of images up for grabs, plus a surprisingly cheap framing service. Alternatively, get frames from charity and second-hand stores for that shabby chiq look.

 Smart Storage

The bane of any nice bedroom is clutter. Clothes laid over chairs and bed frames, papers piling up on surfaces; clutter really makes a room look ten times worse than it otherwise would do. The answer is of course having a good, intelligent amount of storage- boxes, cupboards etc should all be present and utilised throughout!

 Be Yourself

A bedroom is the one room in a home- especially if you’re not the only person living there- that can be used to express your own personality. Do others think that piece of art is awful or that that old rug is looking tired? Who cares! Your bedroom is yours to craft and enjoy!

  1. […] Choosing the right color scheme in your bedroom is essential if you want it to feel as safe and relaxing as possible. Colors can have a direct effect on your mood, so if you’ve chosen the wrong ones, you won’t feel like you can relax in your bedroom. For instance, red can look nice, but it can also be a very stimulating color. If you use this in the room, you might find you can’t relax as well as you like. The most relaxing colors tend to be colors like green and blue. They are colors you see in nature more often and can definitely promote a more peaceful environment, along with purple. Ultimately, you want to pick colors that make you feel relaxed. If red genuinely makes you feel relaxed, then by all means use it. If you’re unsure of how to choose the shades and hues that go together well, use a color wheel. It can help you match colors perfectly and even contrast them if you want a cool look in your bedroom.
