A bedroom is a place to rest and recharge your batteries. But if at the end of a long day, you enter your bedroom and it's not giving you anything but a calm and happy feeling, it might be time for a make-over. So here are 7 budget-friendly ways to make your bedroom a cozy getaway at the end of the day.
Paint a wall or two or even all four
If you are really wanting a change, painting your bedroom can help you feel like you are walking into a brand new room. Bonus points if you paint one wall a darker shade than the others. Try to choose colours that give you a feeling of calm and relax in bright colours.
Get new flooring
While this may be a bit higher on the budget scale, new flooring can be the big change your bedroom needs. Look for some dark wood flooring to create a modern bedroom to match those beautifully newly painted walls.
Make the most of your space
If your bedroom is on the smaller side, a giant king-size bed will not help make your room cozy. Take a look at double beds and see how much bigger your room looks and feels. This goes for your furniture as well. Large pieces of furniture in a small bedroom can make it seem even smaller and make you feel a bit claustrophobic at times. Choose furniture and a bed that is right for the size of your room.
Change your curtains and fancy bedding
Not convinced that curtains can change a room? Take them down all over the house and you'll see. Curtains can be one of the biggest focal points in a room without anyone even noticing. By simply changing your curtains into some more relaxing patterns and colours, walking into your bedroom can give you an instant feeling of relaxing and get you ready for a good nights sleep.
What's the best thing about sleeping at a fancy hotel? The bedding! Treat yourself to some higher thread count and some matching throw pillows and duvet and have that sleeping at a fancy hotel feeling every night.
Get a daylight alarm clock
If your ultimate goal is waking up feeling refreshed, take a look at a daylight alarm clock. These alarm clocks are not the blinking noisy ones you are used to. They mimic creating natural light in your bedroom to help your body feel as though it is waking up with the sun every morning.
Create a nook
A comfy chair and a small round table will help you turn an empty corner of your bedroom into the perfect place to curl up with a book and a nice cup of tea at the end of a long day. As a bonus, this can also be a great place to start your day as well.
Get a new bedroom set
Many people get their bedroom set as a gift or handed down to them. But it never really feels like the right set of furniture for who they really are. Picking furniture may not seem like it but it is a very personal choice. What works for one person may not work for someone else.
While someone might look for furniture that is functional someone else might look for furniture that is antique. Whatever your tastes might be, it is important to make sure that you choose the set that works best for you. By making this tiny upgrade, you can completely transform your bedroom to reflect your personality and help you enjoy a wonderful nights sleep.
