Want to give your bedroom a total makeover, but only a few bucks and a single weekend to do it in? Well, we have some good news for you: You don’t have to completely renovate your room to give it a completely new look. There are many affordable, easy upgrades that you can do all independently while still giving your space a total upgrade. From replacing that old light switch wall plate to rotating out your bedding, we have several tips that can help you give your room a facelift.
Paint an Accent Wall
If you’re itching for something new, painting is a fast and affordable way to do it. Sure, paint does take some time and effort, but you don’t have to paint the entire room to make a big impact. Find a color that coordinates with the existing paint color on your walls and select one wall to paint. Add a cool blue accent wall to an otherwise gray room to create a calming atmosphere. Add bright red paint over one beige wall to add drama to your space. Painting just one wall takes a lot less time but can still give your room a total makeover.
Change Out Your Bedding
Your bed is the focal point of your bedroom, so swapping out the bedding can go a long way towards transforming the space. Of course, you’ll want to ensure that your separate bedding sets still coordinate with your existing décor, so you don’t have to redecorate entirely every time you swap out your comforter. But even if your bedding has a similar color pallet, swapping out those sets seasonally can still make your room feel fresh and new again. Plus, you can rotate heavy blankets in for the winter and opt for a lighter comforter in the warmer months, so this also serves a practical purpose.
Reframe and Rearrange
Consider taking down your current wall décor and rearranging it. You can also reframe photos and artwork to create an even more dramatic change. The longer an item is in the same place in your room, the less you notice it. By simply rearranging what you already have, you can bring attention back to your décor and feel like your room is brand new again.
Add or Swap Out Rugs
A nice rug can make a big impact in any room, and it doesn’t even have to be a full-sized area rug. A small, circular rug can help pull together your cozy little reading nook in one corner. A runner along the foot of your bed can add some style and luxury. If you don’t have rugs in your room, you can add them. And if you do have rugs, you can use the same technique we suggested for your bedding; swap them out seasonally to keep them feeling fresh.
Replace Your Wallplates
There are wallplates in every room of your house. While they may be small, they’re a little detail that can really help to make your space feel tied together, and swapping them out can create an entirely different feel in your space. The best part is, they’re inexpensive to buy and can be replaced in a matter of minutes. There are a lot of different styles and materials out there, allowing you to find something that genuinely emphasizes and complements your sense of style.
