Budget friendly tricks to create a luxurious bedroom space
Having a luxurious looking home can be hard, especially if you are tight on things such as decorating budget. The good news is that there are ways – even on a budget – that you can get the high-end look of your dreams
From adding pillows to a fresh coat of paint and some TLC you can make your home look elegant without breaking the bank. Here, you can discover six of the simplest and budget-friendly ways to create a luxurious bedroom space.
Painting is the simplest yet one of the most effective ways of completely revamping your space. But it is one of the most difficult decisions to make, especially when your remaining décor will need to go with the colour palette choice. As it is elegance that you are after, you’ll want to choose a colour that adds instant glamour. Your options are, bold and dramatic or soft and understated. So a strong scarlet shade on a feature wall or a soft pink all around. Either will add that touch of luxury.
Cushions have two purposes in your home. One, providing you with extra comfort and cosiness and two, to bump up the elegance factor.
The comfort factor, of course, speaks for itself. But we recommend you don’t choose oversized cushions. Something smaller, such as a cushion of about 22 inches is the best choice. And don’t skimp on how many you buy either, you need plenty of scatter cushions for them to look good and add a little luxury to your space.
Hard flooring instead of carpet
Carpet does make a home seem warm and feel soft but it doesn’t have the elegance factor that hard flooring does. Hard flooring provides a room with a classic feel and you can install it for an affordable price with laminate flooring. It lasts a long time when looked after correctly and can prove to be a good return on investment. A dark coloured floor is great for adding a little luxury and be sure to add a rug to tie in your overall design and pull the room together.
One of the most affordable ways to make your home look elegant on a budget is through accessorising. The most average looking homes are the ones that lack accessories. Gold is associated with wealth and richness so bear that in mind with things such as gold picture frames, gold mirrors and gold coloured bedside table legs.
Your bed is the main focal point in your bedroom, so it may be a good idea to get yourself a new one to add a touch of luxury to your room. Opt for something such as Divan Beds Centre – Bed Bases then choose a luxurious mattress to add on top. Once your new bed arrives, dress it up with posh bed sheets, lots of cushions and a nice throw.
Lighting makes the world of difference to a room. You will already have the most basic lighting fixtures in your home already, however, adding your own ones will add elegance to your home.
Ensure you have lots of lighting sources in your bedroom, to make the room appear more open. You don’t need to spend a fortune on an expensive diamond chandelier when you can find unique budget-friendly lighting designs from your local high street shops or do some DIY and add a drum shade to an old chandelier for an easy upcycling project that looks amazing.
As you will have now discovered there are a handful of ways that you can make your bedroom look elegant on a budget. Take the time to create a budget and think about the savings you could make by buying things from second-hand shops – you might end up pleasantly surprised.
