7 Inexpensive Ways To Rejuvenate A Bedroom

My bedroom is my haven away from the stresses and strains of my busy lifestyle and as such, I want it as aesthetically appealing and relaxing as my budget can carry. It is possible to get bored with the space you have at the moment and just want to redecorate. It is actually quite easy to alter the look of one’s master bedroom without emptying your bank account. Simply using a little ingenuity on your part will significantly help to enhance the appearance.

1.     Clear the Clutter: Because we feel the bedroom is not easily accessible to the disapproving eyes of guests, we tend to use it as a dumping ground. The first step to rejuvenating a bedroom is to de-clutter. Be ruthless: If you haven’t used something in six months, toss it. Give ‘em to charity...or if you are a pack-rat as most of us are, stow them neatly away under you beds or in a garage. De-clutter! Cost: =N= 0.00


2.     Reorganize Furniture: A slight shift in a room's furniture configuration can add new life to familiar spaces, so don't be afraid to shake things up. If it is not possible to move the bed, even changing the placement of smaller pieces of furniture such as the dresser will be a nicer change of pace. And while you're at it, rotate and flip your mattress to prevent uneven wear. Cost: =N= 0.00. Get a move on!

3.     Fresh Paints: A fresh coat of already existing paint or a new colour entirely is the simplest way to rejuvenate a room. Choose a color that is soothing to you, as the bedroom should be tranquil and relaxing. Another option would be to paint one wall a separate, bolder color. [I did this in my bedroom. Amazing result]. If you can't add new artwork, rearrange existing pieces for a change of pace. Cost: =N=1800 [for less expensive paints] to =N=7000 [for the expensive varieties].

4.     Air Fresheners: By introducing fragrance into a room, you would be transforming the way the room feels. If you are a fan of scented candles, use ‘em. They add ambience when in use...and look even prettier when not in use, if placed strategically. For safety, use only jar candles in bedrooms and do not place near the window, or curtains, or bed!
If you cannot be bothered with lighting and blowing out candles, a decent potpourri or Glade airfreshner diffuser or gel would do awesomely. Cost: =N=350 to =N=3,500.

5.     Buck up on New Beddings: New bedding will have the most effect on redecorating your bedroom.  A new duvet cover and color-coordinated flat or fitted sheet can help create a whole new look, which means that going from drab to delish can be accomplished in a snap! Cost: =N=5,000 to =N=25,000
6.     Curtains a.k.a Window Wonders: Dress up the windows. Search for inexpensive curtains, or refurbish existing ones by adding new tiebacks or changing the decorative rods. Cost: =N=1,000 to =N=20,000

7.     Accessorize: With throw pillows that would make the bed comfier and inviting! Cost: =N=1,000 to =N=3,000

So, how expensive was this venture? Just let your imagination be your inspiration and you’ll have a brand new room before you can spell out R.E.J.U.V.E.N.A.T.E.
