Get a new room on a budget
September 16, 2016
Do you think that your room looks uninviting, or are you bored by its appearance? A room makeover can change your place dramatically, but it can also be expensive. But what if you could stay within budget and still have a beautiful room? Let’s find out how to refresh your room’s atmosphere without paying too much.
Paint the walls by yourself A new layer of paint may be all that your room needs. Choose the color(s) as you like, refreshing, relaxing, vibrant, etc., and do a cheap makeover by yourself. Feel free to experiment when painting the walls. For instance, you can start by just creating an accent wall to enhance a particular color in the room without having to paint the entire space.
New curtains and pillows
Curtains and pillows are your allies when it comes to cheap room makeovers. If you want to give the impression that you have a high ceiling, opt for long curtains and install the curtain rod higher than the window frame. Pillows can also contribute to a friendlier atmosphere and a cozier one as well. Choose different colors and patterns, and refresh your home without spending a small fortune.
New lighting Lighting has a significant impact on the way your room looks. First of all, increasing the light in a place can make it seem livelier or change the entire mood of the room. Sometimes brighter isn’t always better- it simply depends on the ambiance you want achieved. Try adding / changing the location of lamps in your space and pairing them with a particular type of bulb to set the mood.
Place a mirror on the wall If you feel like you would need more space, but you aren’t able to start knocking down walls, a mirror is a perfect solution. A well matched frame can make it look beautiful and change the entire atmosphere of the room and open up the space making it appear larger. On a budget, try a thrift store of consignment shop for second-hand mirrors with character.
