Making your bedroom a perfect place

The bedroom is one of the most important rooms in your home. Not only is it the place where you sleep, it is also somewhere to relax and unwind after a long day. By making a few simple changes to your bedroom, you can not only enhance the look of it but also create your own perfect space. A stylish but cozy bedroom is the perfect place to escape to.

One of the most important things to think about when creating the perfect bedroom is your bed. Having the right bed is essential, not just for the look of your room but also for your comfort. Having a comfortable bed will enable you to get a good night’s sleep and will provide the perfect place to relax. You can keep your bed comfortable by taking care of your mattress – use a mattress protector to keep your mattress in good condition and if it begins to feel lumpy or uncomfortable, then consider changing it. You can also buy luxury type single bedding in a simple, classic design to give your room that luxurious feel.

Another aspect of your bedroom that is worth looking at to improve the look of your room is a solid wood floor. Carpets are subjected to wear and tear that can leave them looking sorry even if they are relatively new, whereas a solid wood floor, not only looks attractive, but is hard wearing too. I personally think wooden floors also age well, ageing can add a little character which just adds to the look and personality of the floor, and hence the room.

Thinking about what you plan to use your bedroom for will help you to decide on how to make the most of your space. You can make your bedroom a place just for yourself by adding items such as a desk or a bookshelf. This will enable you to use your bedroom space effectively, as you can create a personal space that it is suitable for activities such as reading, as well as your own personal workspace.

You can also consider adding a TV to your bedroom to create the perfect place to relax and make the room feel more like your own. Adding a few decorative items such as some photos or art will also help to add a more personal touch. Installing some shelves is an ideal way to create extra space in your bedroom, as it will help to keep it organized and keep your floor free of clutter. If your bedroom is small, then space-saving items such as a desk with built-in drawers, or a chest of drawers that can also be used as a place to store your TV are a useful addition.

There are many simple design changes that you can make to your bedroom that can be done on a tight budget. Choosing the right wallpaper and curtains will help you to create your own personal bedroom space. Natural lighting is also essential for a bedroom. You can create extra light by adding affordable wooden shutters to your room. Shutters will help to make your bedroom more suitable for activities such as reading, relaxing, studying or sleeping, as you can easily control the amount of natural light in the room.

By making these simple changes, you can easily transform your bedroom into a perfect space. Exploring different designs will enable you to decide what bedroom themes and layouts work best for you. A comfortable bed and a room that is cozy but functional will enable you to have the perfect bedroom space for your needs.

Tips for a bedroom makeover on a budget

Whenever we think of giving our bedroom a makeover, we always expect it to come with a huge budget. After all bedroom furniture does not come cheap. If you are not feeling too flush in the cash stakes, and if money is earmarked for other things due to the time of year, it may be that you decide to put the makeover off. But fear not, there are quick fixes that you can try that won’t break the bank and will leave your room looking new and fresh.

Phil Spencer, well known for ‘Location, Location, Location’ has been working with British Gas to create some quick fixes for the home, and in the video below he shows you how you can create a DIY headboard for a bed that can be done quite cheaply and yet is really effective.

A few more Quick fixes

  • New bedding doesn’t have to break the bank and yet can totally change the look of your room but updating the colour scheme, or by being a blank canvas that you can accessorise. Primark has some brilliant quilt sets that are super pretty and super affordable.
  • Look at the layout of your furniture, does it make the best of your space? We have recently had our room redecorated, but the thing that has made the most difference has been changing the furniture around – it has created space and light and actually made the furniture look brand new.
  • Check out charity shops. Vintage dressing table sets, mirrors and vanity sets can all be picked up quite cheaply from Charity shops. I’ve picked up a peach glass set for £2.99, complete with trinket boxes and candlesticks. It now has pride of place on our window sill.
  • Don’t be afraid to mismatch – chintzy sheets and pillowcases can look super cute, picture frames and prints can be different and yet still work, your bedroom doesn’t have to be uniform, it can have character and reflect your personality.
