Have you ever felt like you want to give your bedroom a makeover but are scared of the cost of doing so? Then fear not, as we’ve gathered a great selection of bedroom makeover tips from across the internet that could seriously revamp your sleeping environment.

So whether you’re into minimalist chic, or feel that the time’s right to indulge in that velvet crush fabric bed, here’s how you can get the bedroom of your dreams without breaking the bank!

The first thing to do is to get rid of any unnecessary clutter. Remember that your bedroom is a place for sleeping, not home entertainments. So be sure to banish televisions and cellphones from the bedroom and enjoy the benefits of a decent night’s sleep in a room that’s a welcome retreat from the stresses of the modern age.

Once you’ve had a good clear out, remember the importance of having some subdued tones in your color scheme. This is because soft neutral shades not only prove to be conducive to creating a relaxing atmosphere, but they can be so much easier to accessorize with some soft furnishings in a cost-effective manner.

But that’s not to say that your frugal bedroom makeover has to be austere, as there are plenty of crafty ways to add a cut-price sense of opulence in your sleeping space. Whether it’s replacing the knobs on your bedside dresser with some decorative drawer handles, or even giving your wardrobe a shabby chic makeover, there’s no limit as to how you can ramp up the style stakes in your bedroom.

Of course, there are certain areas where it’s worth making a long-term investment, after all, how often do we change our beds? So if you’re the kind of person who’s always wanted a velvet crush fabric bed, then you may want to consider a range of bed frames and think about how this could provide a solid, yet luxurious focal point to your bedroom makeover project.

Once you’ve got the main bedroom furniture in place, then it’s relatively easy to accessories with a few motifs that can suit your own particular aesthetic tastes.

Whether it’s a valance for your window that takes advantage of the technicolor stripe trend, or even just a collection of cushions that can add an extra level of comfort for next to nothing, it’s clear that it’s not just a velvet crush fabric bed that can offer real value for money in your bedroom revamp!

    Over the summer we redid all 3 of the kid’s bedrooms, new paint (our daughter now has the exact same color as the one in the image you used at the start of this post!), new furniture, new curtains, etc. Next up is our room. We do need to declutter first and we’ve already installed a ceiling fan. Next up is choosing a paint color!

    I love doing a bedroom makeover. I once helped my friend with his bedroom makeover, and he is satisfied with results as it caused him less than what he had expected using affordable furniture and designs.

    Getting rid of clutter is the hardest step. lol. I’m so attached to “stuff” that I keep thinking that one day I’ll get back to them eventually. But I really need a large trash bag so that I can sweep everything into it.

      I’m reminded of George Carlin’s “stuff” routine! Hilarious!
