If you want to give your bedroom a cool new look it is not only going to take some significant planning but also a bit of money. Decorating and remodeling any room in your home can be expensive undertaking and the bedroom is no exception. However, there are some ways that you can give your bedroom a cool and updated look that fits your tastes and won’t break your budget.
Pictures and Framing
What better way to liven up a boring bedroom than to add some photos of family, friends, or some art that caught your attention? An empty wall looks drab but it does also present you with a blank slate with which to start your bedroom redecoration. While high quality picture frames can cost lots of money you can purchase cheaper frames from chain store or arts and crafts supply stores. Make sure that the framing you choose is not only unique to the look that you’re going for but also matches well with the paint color of your bedroom. Find some frames in different shapes and materials. Would your bedroom look better with plastic picture frames or wooden?
Lighting in your bedroom can come from different sources and you will want to utilize all of them in order to give it a cool new look. If your bedroom has a ceiling lighting fixture or a ceiling fan with lights something as simple as changing the type of light bulb you use can have a huge effect on how your bedroom looks. You can change them for a brighter look that is more energy efficient for only a few dollars.
Another trick for artificial lighting is to look into some small inexpensive lamps that could be placed bedside or on top of some other piece of furniture that you own. Shop around at stores or even yard sales to find a quirky look that will suit you.
Give it the Right Color
Most new homes or apartments will start out with the same white or cream colored walls that make the room look as plain as possible. Finding the right color for your room can create a cool visual effect for very cheap. Learning how to paint the walls yourself can not only be a good way to save money but a project that you can really express yourself with.
Large mirrors can cost quite a bit but luckily you don’t necessarily need them for your bedroom’s new look. Experiment with placement of mirrors around your room and different shapes and sizes that really catch the eye as you walk into your bedroom.
Windows and Curtains
There are many things that you can do to decorate your bedroom around the windows. First, you can install new blinds that will allow you to control the amount of light that gets into the room or remove the blinds you have now and replace them will some gorgeous drapes to match the new paint color. Another cool way that you can utilize your windows is by installing some stained glass which turns your window into a work of art rather than just a piece of glass.
Giving your bedroom a cool new look doesn’t have to be very difficult or expensive. With a few small changes in lighting and décor you can transform your bedroom with a very minimal investment of time and money.
