As Summer becomes a distant memory and Christmas is coming up fast, the budget doesn’t always stretch to making your home a sanctuary. Here we share the top tips we’ve picked up to update your room without splashing out £1000’s.
A Fresh Lick of Paint
The best way to give your room a fresh look is to brighten up the walls. This can be done cheaply by picking up mis-mixed paints in store; these are paints which are mixed to the incorrect colour however the quality is the same. Or you could focus on a feature wall we recommend using the Dulux Feature Wall Paint to draw the eye using bright colours.
Use your Storage to make a feature in your room
Make items in your room multifunctional. For example, this Brabantia clothes rack is not only a practical storage solution but can be dressed as a decorative room feature too.
Re-use what you already have
Have a look in your home for items you could reuse. Recovering items such as chairs or headboard using some new fabric is a cheaper way of bringing these items back to life. You could also look at repainting your furniture to save buying new.
Spend a little money on some statement accessories for your bedroom. This will make it look expensive without spending out on the big ticket items. We’d recommend a potted plant or even a nice lantern.
Nothing is nicer than getting into clean sheets at the end of a long day. Freshen the room up with some new bed linen. Top tip: This is a great place to add colour if you've gone for standard magnolia or grey walls. Tropical patterns are very on trend right now.
Add some personal touches
Get those photos out from under your bed or hidden away in the attic. Reasonably priced photo frames can look great hung over a bed or desk and show case some great memories. These will make you smile every time you walk into your fresh looking bedroom.
