Okay, so it would be easier to go to the nearest Home Depot an buy everything you need to makeover your bedroom, but if money is tight, it might not be the wisest decision, especially when you can makeover your bedroom without spending a single cent. Don’t believe me? Here’s how it’s possible:
Make the Bed
Messy duvet covers, even when they’re from a quality brand like Vaulia, do not do your bedroom any favors at all. By simply taking the time to straighten up your bed, plump your pillows and replace any cushions or throws every morning, you can immediately make your bedroom look much better, and it’ll only cost you a couple of minutes of your time.
Declutter and Clean Up
If your bedroom is dirty, covered in dust or bursting at the seams with unnecessary stuff, it is never going to look anything other than bad. You might not enjoy doing it, but sorting out your bedroom clutter once and for all, selling or donating anything you don’t really need, and putting away anything that you want to keep will totally transform the space. As will doing a deep clean of everything from the carpets and bed sheets to the walls.
Whether your bedroom furniture is starting to look a bit shabby or your curtains, have seen better days, instead of going out to buy new pieces, look around your home for half-full cans of paint, pieces of fabric you can repurpose and items that can be relocated to the bedroom. Then you can upcycle and replace those worn pieces without spending a single cent.
Sometimes, simply moving the position of your bed from one wall to another or lining up the perfume bottles on your dresser in another way can have a big impact on the way your room looks. So, do some experimenting, changes things around and see if you can create what feels like a whole new space without a single trip to the store.
Dig Up the Garden
If you have plants and flowers in your garden, consider digging a few up and relocating them to the bedroom, where they will brighten the place up and give the room a more luxurious feel. Use old glass bottles and mason jars as vases, and you won’t have to spend anything at all.
If you have any art supplies at all in your home, even if they are just crayons or marker pens, you can make bedroom art and change the look of your existing bedroom. Melt crayons onto canvas for an abstract look, cover your nightstand with washi tape or paint your own masterpieces – the options are endless.
Set Up a Swap Event
If you want to add some new furnishings to your bedroom, instead of going to Bed, Bath, and Beyond and giving your credit card a thrashing, see if others in your local community would be interested in a swapping event. If they are, organize a time where you can all meet, swap bedroom items and create whole new looks for free.
So, there you have it. You really can transform your bedroom for free!
