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.
