Everyone deserves a little bit of luxury from time to time. Unfortunately, not all of us have the means to splurge on decoration. However, with a little bit of creativity and savoir faire, it is still possible to make your bedroom look like a 5-Star hotel on a dime. In this article, we’re going to give you four simple tips that will allow you to upgrade your bedroom on a budget.
Change the Lighting
It can be surprising how something as simple as lighting can completely transform the atmosphere of a room. One of the simplest ways that you can do this is to replace your existing light switches with dimmable versions that will allow you to adjust the intensity of the lighting at will. This will allow you to easily control the mood of the room. You could also consider adding a chandelier or a glamorous hanging light to give your room more pizzazz.
Change the Color Scheme
Choosing the right color scheme is essential when trying to achieve the perfect look. There are two approaches when choosing colors; you can either go for neutral lux, or go for richer, colored tints.
One of the greatest advantages of the neutral look is that it is timeless and impervious to trends. It is also great if you want to achieve a clean look. But, instead of going for plain white, try to go for richer tints such as cream or ivory. If you ever decide to go neutral, it is however very important that you switch textures and materials to give the room a sense of depth.
If you want to get more adventurous, go for richer hues such as jade, amber, ruby or even navy to set your room apart. You could also consider investing in some designer bedding and adding designer wallpaper on your headboard wall to make it a focal point.
Consider Crown Molding
A lot of people overlook crown molding, but it can significantly enhance the look of a room and make it look much more luxurious. Simple crown molding is one of the easiest ways to increase the value of a home, and is very inexpensive as well. Furthermore, crown molding is rather simple to install and is perfect for DIY buffs who don’t mind getting their nose dirty.
Improve your Bed
Whichever way you put it, the central point of your bedroom remains your bed, so you should at least consider investing in a better bed or improve the one you currently have if you want to add a sense of luxury to your room. The first thing you have to consider is comfort. Decide on which type of mattress you would like (firm or soft) and set your budget. If you don’t feel like your mattress is worn out, but doesn't offer the support it used to, consider investing in mattress toppers. Also, piling pillows and adding throws will go a long way in improving the overall look of the room.
As you can see, making your bedroom look luxurious doesn’t have to be expensive. Consider investing is some new lighting to improve the general mood of the room, change the color scheme, add some crown molding, and spruce up your bed with quality bedding, throws and nice pillows to give your bedroom a full makeover without breaking the bank.
