Bedroom Makeover Ideas Under $50

Sometimes a bedroom needs a makeover that doesn’t break the bank. In fact, some people strive to do it often for under $50!

Thankfully, revamping a bedroom’s decor does not have to be an expensive task. Superficial changes are often enough to give a bedroom an entirely new look that not only is aesthetically pleasing but cost-sensitive. Here are some inexpensive ways to spruce up your room.

Windows:

Window dressings should be functional as well as pleasing to the eye, and for the most part, it’s easy to do on a budget. To change the look of a bedroom’s windows completely:

  • Clean the panes and frames thoroughly.
  • Purchase new, decorative curtain rods and tie backs.
  • Choose curtains that set the tone for the room’s color scheme.
  • Resources such as www.blinds.com offer a selection of blinds that offset the color the of the curtains.

Fix the Furniture:

Buying new furniture is costly, so look for ways to add used furniture that works with your mix. Used furniture can be spruced up for a fraction of the price of a new bedroom set. Give your furniture a new look in these easy ways.

  • Fix any broken drawers, doors and legs on the furniture. Check for DIY instructions for these projects on the Web.
  • Sand down any rough edges or scratches.
  • Buy new colorful handles for dressers – it brightens up the room.
  • Purchase updated hardware, such as drawer pulls and accents.
  • Paint the furniture so it all matches the room’s new decor.

Bed Linens:

For a fresh look, update your bed linens. Look at discount retailers for sales on bed linens that can add color and light to your bedroom set. When choosing new bed linens:

  • Choose solid-color sheets and pillowcases that either complement or match accent pieces, such as curtains and throw pillows, in the room.
  • Find a printed comforter, but also look to complement both the sheets and the color scheme of the room.
  • Use solid or print throw pillows, but avoid color clashes with the sheets.

Organization:

Get your room organized! Place the furniture back in convenient areas and avoid clutter. Here are some organizational tips for room decorating:

  • Buy a stylish hamper that goes with the new decor.
  • Use shelving above dressers for extra space needs.
  • Spread framed photos throughout the room instead of putting them all in one place.

Extras:

The extras in a bedroom can give it a lot of its appeal. Little things can change a bedroom from a utilitarian space to a space with character.

Additions that spice up a bedroom:

  • Potted trees oxygenate the room and add color.
  • Throw rugs can make the floor more comfortable to walk on, prevent scratches and add more color.
  • New lighting fixtures or even just new lampshades can quite literally brighten up a bedroom.
  • Instead of repainting or papering the walls, add a paper or stencil trim that stands out.
