How much time do you spend in your bedroom? If you’re anything like us it’s probably a lot of time. Between studying and hanging with friends, to the almost mandatory Netflix and Chill at the weekends and of course, sleep, your bedroom really becomes your go-to place. It’s also your sanctuary from the world, so you may as well love it!
Now we’re not recommending getting Dermot Bannon in to go mad, but there are some ways that you can make your room “insta-worthy” no matter your budget. So, whether you’re giving your room at home a much-needed revamp or decorating your first room in college, we have some tips on how you can redecorate your room on a budget.
5 Tips To Redecorate Your Bedroom On A Budget
Yep, the first tip is to bite the bullet and do that deep-clean that you’ve been promising to do for months (or years!). Go full on Marie Kondo and clean out your whole room. Donate what you don’t need anymore to charity. Make better use of space and storage by investing in some storage from Ikea. Once you have everything cleaned take a good look at your room and really think about what you’d like to do with it.
2. Work with what you already have
One of the best ways to redecorate your bedroom on a budget is to use what you already have and improve upon it. If you can’t afford to change the curtains look at what colours you could use elsewhere in your room to compliment it.
The quickest and cheapest way to redecorate your bedroom is to move the furniture around. Try moving your bed to a different wall if you have the space.
Do you have a chest of drawers that could be up-cycled with a bit of paint? Check out the rabbit hole that is Pinterest for tons of cool ideas. Joanne Condon is the absolute queen of up-cycling – definitely check out her Instagram for some fun inspiration! If you don’t have anything ask your granny or other family members if they have an old dresser, desk or bedside table lying around the place. St. Vincent de Paul and other charity shops can be great for furniture. Some chalk paint and new handles work wonders and make everything look “Insta-worthy”.
A really fun and budget-friendly way to add a fun, new look to your bedroom is to use wall decals like the gold spots above. They’re easy to stick on and shouldn’t mark the wall (please don’t blame us if they do!) and are super-cheap!
4. Invest wisely
If you are spending a bit of money make sure that you do it wisely. Don’t go for colours that you’re going to be sick of in a few months. Stick with naturals and then add a pop of colour using budget-friendly accessories. Call us basic, but we love the Marks and Spencer Iris Spotted Dobby Bedding Set that ALL the bloggers seem to have!
5. Accessorises make a room
Don’t worry if you don’t have the budget (or parental permission!) to make big changes like painting the walls, or getting a new bed – it’s the small details that make a room anyway! Fairy-lights make everything better, FACT! And they only cost a few euro. Don’t overlook Dealz and Penneys for cute accessories. Add contrasting cushions and throws to create a cosy atmosphere in your room. The key to a great Insta worthy bedroom is the stying. By mixing and matching a few new additions with your own books and pictures you can create the impression that you’re redecorated your whole bedroom.
