Budget-Friendly Ways to Refresh and Invigorate Your Bedroom

You spend about 1/3 of your life sleeping, so don’t you think you should sleep in a room that contributes to sweet dreams? A disorganised or uninspiring bedroom can make it hard to relax, and it probably won’t help your disposition in the morning, either. You want your bedroom to be your oasis – a calm and peaceful space where you can deeply rest. But if the reality isn’t quite matching that wish of yours, maybe it’s time for a bedroom refresh.

The Headboard

It’s safe to say the bed is the bedroom’s main feature, and as such, it sets the tone for the entire room. If you want to breathe new life into your room, your best bet is starting with the focal point and investing in a cool and quality designer bed headboard. You can find various models on the market, all different in terms of style, size, colour and material.

From simple and minimalist designs to more ornate modern bed headboards – online stores are abundant with designs to suit everyone’s taste. Even if you opt for a more sophisticated model in hopes to add a touch of class to your space (like the classic design with a sewn seam and buttoning details), you’d be still able to pull off a plain look later on without having to buy a new bedhead. Wondering how? Well, with the help of a slipcover. You can choose from a range of different coloured and different sized slipcovers if you want to change up the look of your luxury bedhead every now and then. Not to mention that they make maintenance a piece of cake as well!

Besides adding charm and style to your bedroom, the headboard also serves to protect the wall from stains and scratches, Moreover, if you like watching TV while in bed, reading, or working on your laptop, then the bedhead is the perfect surface to lean against and make yourself more comfortable. And oh, this element is sure to make you enjoy breakfast in bed even more, which only further proves that investing in a designer bed headboard is money well spent!

Mess and bedrooms don’t go well together, even more so knowing the impact this combination has on sleep. For that reason, storage is an important aspect of your bedroom’s design. What’s great about it is that you can buy pieces that also contribute to the great aesthetics of the room, besides their functionality. Take for instance floating shelves, bedside tables and ottomans.

Floating Shelves

The reason why interior designers love floating shelves is that they don’t take up floor space. This doesn’t just leave you with more space available in the room, but it also provides a cleaner look. They help clear up visual clutter, leaving you with a light and airy bedroom, just the kind you need for rest and relaxation. Thanks to their flexibility, you can install them anywhere you want and use them to display your favourite decorations, frames, books, souvenirs and whatnot. And the best part of it all – they’re rather inexpensive and come in a range of colours.

Bedside Tables

Again, if you like reading books in bed, this piece of furniture is more than essential as its main purpose is providing space for your nighttime essentials. Now that the market abounds in bedside tables, available in a wide range of designs and sizes, it’s easy to find an affordable one that would make a world of difference in the room, adding a breeze of change and serving as more than merely a stand for the lighting. To make the right decision, don’t forget to take your space and your needs into account. Consider how many drawers you’d ideally need and if you come to the realization that you don’t have that much floor space, don’t forget that you can always go for a floating nightstand as well!

It doesn’t matter whether you’re a fan of ottomans, they are must-have pieces in makeovers. They can be found in all kinds of designs, patterns and materials, which means they come in very handy when spicing up a bedroom’s décor. They work well even in small bedrooms, especially the models that provide storage. You can place them anywhere in the room, beside the bed to help you out when dressing up, by the wardrobe – when you want to reach the higher compartments, and paired with an armchair – acting as a footrest.
