Bedroom Makeover: It Does Not Have To Cost a Fortune

You have just finished watching a home decorating show or just flipped through a magazine dedicated to home decor. You are inspired to redecorate your entire bedroom, then realize that you don't have thousands of dollars to do so. What now?

Even though you don't have the budget you want, you can use the budget you have. The following tips will help you take your dull space and make it like new.

Start with Color

Picking a paint color is time consuming when you are not sure of where to start. It does not have to be. Look around the bedroom, including your clothes closet and see which colors catch your eye. If you don't find anything there, look around the rest of the house. Maybe you have an accent piece like a vase or lamp that has an appealing color in it. You are sure to find a color or two that will intrigue you.

Once you have found your color, hold the object up to one of the bedroom's walls, to get a better idea of how it will look on it. If the color is bright and will blind your eyes with the morning sun, consider toning it down some. If the color is too dull, do the opposite and bring the shade up a bit. To find that just right color, bring the item or a picture of it to a paint or home improvement store. One of the store's associates can help you find a color chip that reflects you. Buy the paint and get started.

Spend Less and Get More

Now that the paint has dried, it's time to really spruce up your bedroom. Again, it does not have to cost a fortune. Hit the local flea markets, garage sales, dollar stores, department store clearance shelves and chain stores to find accent pieces that complement your personal style. Don't be afraid to add patterns and experiment with different fabrics as well.

The following 8 inexpensive suggestions will help complete your bedroom makeover:
·         Replace the bed spread and sheets.
Doing so can dramatically make your room look brand new.
·         Change your lamps or just the lampshades of your present lamps.
·         Add more pillows to the bed.
Your bed will look and feel more comfy.
·         Add a bench to the foot of the bed.
You can lay out the next days' outfit and have a place to sit to put on your shoes.
·         Put up a picture or two up.
Putting prints or a picture above the headboard is very popular these days. You can also reframe the pictures you may already have in the room.
·         Renew the dresser or armoire.
Give them a distressed look or simply change the handles.
·         Move the furniture around.
This will give the room a different dimensional look.
·         Add sheer or patterned curtains to the windows.
Like the bedding, different window treatments renew the bedroom.

Last, but not least- Have fun and enjoy your new space.
