Simple Budget-Friendly Ways to Improve Your Bedroom

Many people may be unaware but most of the time spent at home is in their bedroom. We do spend one-thirds of our day sleeping after all. Thus its really important to have a relaxing and calming space to ensure your quality rest time remains uninterrupted. Despite this, many Singaporeans postpone bedroom upgrade projects because they worry about the cost. Is a bedroom renovation really that expensive and can the work be done without spending a ton of money on it? Our designers break it down in this article.

Reconsider the Mood Board

Whenever an interior design concept is executed in one tone or several similar colours, the final décor could look a little bit bland and lacking an oomph. In such cases, try reevaluating the mood board of the room, as the room may have drastically changed over the years.

Choosing a few bright and bold pillows to throw on the bed, for example, will immediately create a focal point in the room. You can also select a little rug or a carpet that’s bright and patterned. Throws, curtains and other fabrics also provide excellent opportunities for keeping the bedroom décor looking lively instead of tired.

Experiment with Removable Wallpaper

Removable wallpaper is inexpensive and it’s also a lot of fun if you want to carry out a bold transformation. This product doesn’t get permanently stuck to your walls. When you get tired of it, you can take the wallpaper down and replace it with something else.

The use of removal wallpaper is one of the quickest and cheapest ways to immediately transform your bedroom. Try bold patterns or graphic prints to breathe some youthfulness into the interior design. Geometric shapes and florals are other great choices if you want to distance yourself from the typical monochromatic wall.

Add Framing to the Art on the Walls

A beautiful and elaborate painting or photo frame can be really inexpensive. At the same time, the addition of such an ornate element to the bedroom wall will quickly transform its appeal. Having all of your pictures in exactly the same frame adds consistency and a decorative element to the bedroom. You can go clean and minimalist (black-painted wooden frames are one beautiful example) or you can opt for ornate frames that will give you a bit of the art deco vibe.

Or consider DIY Art instead

The area above the bed is a lovely canvas. The best part of carrying out such a project is that you can do it on your own. You can use decals for the purpose, you can try out paint patterns or even splatters. Some people have even gone as far as to paint a fake headboard behind your bed. You’re limited only by your imagination and your artistic abilities.

When engaging in such a DIY project, do a test run before carrying out the actual work. Make sure that the concept you have in mind works to prevent a massive disaster on the wall.

Experiment with Textures

Some people appreciate the monochromatic look of their bedroom and do not want to test out art and patterns. If you’re one of these people, you can upgrade the appearance of your bedroom through the interplay of different textures.

One of the many ways many ways to bring various textures into the bedroom including introducing the warmth of natural wood, the impeccable smoothness of metal, soft fabrics and heavy patterned curtains. You can add even more textures by having a couple of fluffy pillows or a faux fur throw rug.

Repositioning the Bed

One of the most underestimated bedroom upgrade we want to suggest does not involve the purchase of anything. For a start, do a bedroom evaluation. A bed that’s pushed in the corner isn’t an optimal choice. Instead, try having the bed against a window or centrally positioned. Once you make the shift, you’ll notice just how much it opens the room up.
