Did you realise you spend as much as a third of your life in your bedroom? Admittedly, most of that is spent with your eyes closed, but what about the time when you’re awake? Next time you’re lying on your bed just dozing, take a look around the room and you might realise it needs a bit of a TLC. How much you spend depends on your budget, but you could get away with spending the smallest amount. The end result could still have the wow factor you’d get from spending hundreds of pounds. If you’re looking for ideas, here are some tips you might want to follow.
Pick a New Colour Scheme
Are you the kind of person who finds interior decorating a little bit daunting? The best place to start is choosing a colour scheme and in your bedroom, you need to pick colours that are soothing. Think about shades of lavender, light blue and grey. For a pop of colour add accents in bright orange and green. Repainting the walls won’t break the bank and you’ll have money left over to buy some interesting bedroom pieces.
Lavish Some Attention on Your Floors
If you’ve already got wall-to-wall carpeting or wooden flooring, replacing these might prove to be expensive. Show your flooring how much you care by adding a colour-coordinated rug. Pick something warm and comforting to place next to your bed. Alternatively, choose a mixture of textures and patterns depending on the rest of your décor. A rug is a great way of tying different elements in your room together. Pick the right size and you’ll be able to make your room look bigger or smaller.
Add Some Interesting Accessories
This is a great way to spice up the plainest of rooms. Adding throws, cushions and covers in a range of different colours and textures will bring your room alive. Why not swap out your bedding for something new? Or change for a duvet or comforter. These small additions can create a whole new look in your room. You might want it to be more girly, modern, classic, graphic, pastel or primary. If you want to splash out a little, consider investing in wall art to adorn your bedroom walls. Some bigger renovation projects might require a little more time, effort and money, but that doesn’t mean you can’t sort your dream bedroom.

Choose Green Additions
If you want to have an expensive looking bedroom, without spending the cash, add some plants to the room. Pick a pretty vase and bring in some cut flowers. Pot up lush green plants in ceramic or metal containers. Pick plants that will help purify the air and make you sleep better, as well as improve the look of your room.
More Suggestions That Won’t Break the Bank

Changing the look and feel of a room doesn’t have to cost hundreds, although there’s nothing wrong with spending the money if you want to. It doesn’t have to be a big change either as several small things can have just as big an impact.
