Photographs – If you own a digital camera (which I’m sure you do), there is no reason why you can’t produce some amazing photos worthy of being hung on your bedroom wall or displayed on a nightstand. Touch up on your photography skills, do a little photo editing to enhance your images, and then print them yourself or have them professionally done. There is an abundance of free information online that will teach you how to capture spectacular photos and, if you’re on a budget, there is also plenty of free photo editing software programs you can use.
Add Some Colour – If you’re looking for an inexpensive way to enhance your bedroom, consider painting the walls or existing furniture. That awful dresser cabinet you’re ready to chop up and use as firewood could look brand new and amazing with a couple coats of fresh paint.
Be Bold In The Right Places – Another way to enhance your bedroom while staying on a budget is to use neutral colours on the walls and large furniture, and then use bold colours in your bed linen or throw pillows. It’s a lot more affordable – and convenient – to purchase several different coloured or themed sheets and pillows which you can swap out for different ones when you want a new look than it is to change the colour of paint every month or buy new furniture when you feel like something new.
This is especially good for kids’ bedrooms – rather than going full out on a Twilight theme or a room full of horses, Hot Wheels, or Pokémon, using neutral tones and themed sheets, comforters, and pillows is a lot more cost effective when you know your child will be trading in their love for vampires for the latest trend before the paint even sets.
Unique Headboards – Get creative and consider making your own headboard, like the one shown in Home Decorating Tips by Martha Stewart.
Follow Martha’s Advice – Speaking of the decorating queen, Martha Stewart has some fantastic ideas when it comes to enhancing and decorating bedrooms. From how to make your own custom curtains to tips on using colour and ideas on how to display photos, Martha’s got your back.
Mirrors – Mirrors are not only useful, they can also be quite decorative and provide an easy way to enhance a bedroom. Mirrors come in all shapes and sizes and can also help make a small room feel larger than it really is.
Lighting – Enhance your bedroom with various different types of lighting. A bedroom should have practical lighting for reading and other activities which require a decent amount of light but also some softer lighting ideal for relaxing. Recessed lighting, ceiling fixtures, wall sconces, bedside table lamps, and even candles are all options worth looking into.
