Giving any room in your home doesn't have to be expensive. Follow these seven makeover ideas to transform your bedroom instantly.
Choosing colors and textures
The hardest decision of all is selecting a color scheme. Firstly, find some inspiration on Pinterest and decide what type of bedroom you are drawn to. You can then start putting together a mood-board of colors and features that appeal to you.
Once you've chosen a color scheme, you can start to decide what kind of finishes and textures you like. Combining different textures can give you room depth, so consider choosing a few.
Add some personality
Wallpapering or painting one wall in your bedroom is an excellent way to add a splash of personality. Feature walls are a quick and easy way to give your bedroom a makeover. It's unlikely you'll need to move furniture, too because it's just one wall.
If you're not ready to commit to painting or wallpapering one wall in your bedroom, then that's okay! You can add personality by adding throw cushions to your bed or changing the curtains.
Invest in new bedding
If you can't invest in a new mattress, then at least treat yourself to some new bedding. Choose a duvet that is one size bigger than your bed, and double up on pillows.
Buy a fresh set of sheets and pillowcases (plus you'll need if you've got a new duvet!). Opt for white Egyptian cotton for a luxurious feel.
Let there be light!
Lighting impacts our mood, so it's crucial that this is in the forefront of your mind when decorating. Consider installing a dimmer, to adjust your lighting, depending on how you feel.
LED fairy lights are also an excellent alternative to the bedroom if you don't fancy having a bedside lamp. They can add a touch of sparkle while not overpowering the room.

Wall art and decor
Looking on websites such as Etsy for handmade pieces though can be a great place to start looking. You'll find something unique and handmade especially for you.
If you want to decorate your bedroom with unique pieces of art and decor on a budget, though, why not make your own? DIY home decor tutorials are the perfect way to add personality to your room, while sticking to a theme.
Hide the clutter
There's nothing worse than unwinding in bed, and finding yourself surrounded by clutter. Clear your surfaces and tidying away your clothes, so that you can relax in a clean bedroom.
Perhaps organize your belongings into a closet, or tuck them away under your bed.
Don't forget to look down!
So many people forget to look down when they are decorating their bedrooms. You don't have to tear up the carpet to change the style of your room. Choose rugs that suit the style of your room. There’s nothing better than a cozy rug under your feet on a winter morning, too!
