We all aspire to have a bedroom that looks as if it has come straight from Pinterest, with designer decor, a big comfy bed and a perfect colour scheme. But most people simply don’t have the budget to create their dream bedroom, or can’t quite get their room finished. It’s important that if you fall within this category, you don’t give up on creating the bedroom you have always wanted. It is possible, with a few tips, tricks and hacks, to make your bedroom look luxurious and expensive designed, all on a budget.
Your bedroom is the space where, without realising, you spend the majority of your time. You want it to be relaxing, personal and welcoming, especially when you’ve had a hard day and all you want to do is crawl into bed! As with most other things in life, it all comes down to the details, so with that in mind, here are some simple tricks you can use to make your bedroom look and feel more luxurious.
Get Rid Of Any Clutter
One of the most important steps you can take when it comes to making your bedroom look more luxurious is cutting the clutter and junk lying around. Whilst all rooms will get messy from day to day use, getting rid of any clutter you don’t use or which is simply taking up space can make all the difference.
Once you have more room to work with, as well as less distractions in the form of clutter, you’ll be able to incorporate a more luxurious style into your bedroom. After all, a luxurious space should have just that – space! Clear out any wardrobes, drawers or under bed storage and reduce the number of things you have taking up floor space.
Just the simple addition of flowers or plants to your bedroom can make all the difference when it comes to luxurious living. Look to add houseplants to your bedside tables if you want to add some finishing touches to your bedroom space as not only will these look good, but they can help improve the air quality in the room too, which can help you relax and sleep better.
Snake plants, rubber plants and peace lilies are all good additions as they are easy to care for and look effective. If you want to add an extra dash of luxury to your bedroom, look at adding a statement pineapple plant to your bedside tables instead. Not only are they quirky and interesting to look at, but they are also said to help aid snoring!
Change The Light Fittings
If you’ve got your bedroom decor looking exactly how you want, but feel as though there is something still missing, then take a look at changing your light fittings and accessories. Changing lighting in your bedroom is a relatively inexpensive task and is something that can really make all the difference when it comes to the style of your bedroom. Get rid of standard ceiling fittings and replace them with stylish cord or copper ones instead.
Change the light shade from boring plain ones and instead use a metal or wicker one to add the perfect finishing touch. If you’ve got copper, gold or silver accents in your bedroom decor, complete the look by changing light switches and plug sockets around the room to ones that use similar tones. With just a small budget, you can completely transform your bedroom’s appearance.
Make A Statement With Bedding
When you first get your own place, bedding is something that has a hidden price tag attached. We all need it, but often it is something that we simply don’t budget for and depending on your bed size or how many bedrooms you have in your home, it can quickly add up! When it comes to creating a luxury bedroom, your bedding should be one of, if not the only, focal point. After all, you spend around 8 hours a night lay in it, so it is worth focusing on.
You can get cheap bedding sets that are suitable for all year round, or if you prefer, a lighter or heavier tog. Then, use white cotton bedding to make your bedroom look luxurious. Pretty much every luxury hotel uses white cotton bedding and for good reason, it looks good and is super comfortable. Then from here, you can add expensive-looking furnishings such as velour cushions, cotton trim rectangular pillows and plush blankets.
