Improving your bedroom can help you to create a beautiful room, plus enhance your enjoyment of the space. With a few improvements, you might even find that you sleep a little better. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to improve the look and feel of your room. Thankfully, there are lots of easy and cheap options.
#1 Add Accessories
Looking to improve your bedroom on a budget? Adding a few accessories can make all the difference. Try a few new cushions and throws for your bed, a new rug, or a few candles. Consider bold and bright colors to change up the look of your room and make an impact. When you’re choosing your soft furnishings, try to pick green materials, whether hemp, organic wool or cotton, or sustainable wood.
#2 Declutter & Sell
One super-easy way to improve your bedroom is to get rid of the clutter. This won’t cost you anything; you might even be able to make some spare cash by selling your old stuff. Decluttering is all about getting rid of the objects you no longer use or need. Don’t be tempted to hang onto things that have been collecting dust in your wardrobe for years!
When you declutter, you may even find that your room feels bigger because you have more space. For other space-saving ideas consider over bed wardrobes, or floating cabinets.
#3 Shop Preloved
To improve your bedroom without overspending, try shopping on a preloved app. Here you’ll find lots of cheap second-hand items, to spruce up your room:
- 5 Miles: On the 5Miles app you can pick up second-hand items from people in your local area, whether it’s furniture, artwork, plants, clothing, or electronics.
- Decluttr: The Decluttr app is a platform to help people to purchase and sell second-hand goods. For a few cheap decor items for your bedroom, this app is the place to be!
4# Add Flowers & Plants
To jazz up your room on a budget, simply add a few lovely flowers and plants. Adding plants is a great way to introduce color and nature to your room, and to filter toxins out of the air. Many of us prefer low maintenance plants (that are very difficult to kill)!
For a few easy options, try one of these:
- Kalanchoe: These plants have delicate pink flowers, and can easily survive in dry climates. Kalanchoes retain water very well, so you don’t need to worry if you forget to water them.
- Phalaenopsis Orchid: Orchids are a beautiful option for the home, and these types of orchids are very easy to look after. You only need to water these about once a week to keep them looking lovely.
5# New Duvet Sets
Simple but effective, treat yourself to a new duvet set or two, to create a fresh and colorful look for your bedroom. Studies show that the quality of our bed affects our sleep. From the duvet to the mattress, be sure to choose something lovely!
