Trendy Budget-Friendly Bedroom Makeover Tips

January 21, 2022

It’s that time of year again.

You have enjoyed a long, hopefully relaxing varsity break. Sadly this is going to be one of the longest vacations you will ever experience. The only time you will probably ever utter and equally quickly swallow the words, “I am so bored, and cannot wait to get back”.

Feeling refreshed and ready, you want to put your best foot forward, and what better way to do that than giving the space you spend most of your time (especially since the end-of-year cramming and Covid-19 and all the lockdowns) a bit of a facelift. We got you. Sit back, relax and continue on for some fun and most importantly, budget-friendly bedroom makeover tips.

Step one: room-meet-self, self-meet-room

Lucy Deslandes said that “Feng Shui is a living skill. There’s an art to it. It’s scientific; it’s mathematical and at times it’s logical – with an element of magic”. The magic happens when the space is an extension of you and your personality. Below is a table that pairs personality with style. Find yours and you may just find the magic, your zen:

Personality traits Design style What you will need
Extroverted with the mantra; practicality, culture, and heritage above all else. Scandinavian design: function meets minimalism. This style requires plain white walls that are met with uniquely textured or coloured home accessories. Your colour scheme will range from earthy brown tones to lush forest greens combating the predominantly white and neutral surrounding area.
Always ready for an adventure, most at peace in a space where the outdoors and indoors unite. Picturesque farmhouse. Use rustic raw materials like wood, stone, and leather. You are looking for a piece that screams drama and substance, furniture that makes a statement but at the same time pulls to room together.
If life was a plane journey across the world you would be the first to board. Travel, sun, surf, and sand are the bread to your butter. Coastal bliss. Play with sea colours (blue, brown, green, and dirty white). Soft breezy curtains are the way to go. The lighter and airier the feel of the space is better.

Walk to the beat of your own drum?

Bohemian Rhapsody. Be true to your multi-coloured personality. Let texture, print, light, and colour run free. Who said David’s technicoloured coat would not make a fantastic bedspread?
Attune to the finer things, with a larger-than-life personality. Hollywood affair. Glam is your friend – plush velvet pillows, lush curtains – a Great Gatsby movie set is your aim.

Step two: make friends with your budget

It will do you well to meet your personality and style but be smart, stick to your budget. As no surroundings will fill the gaping hole of panic when your budget has been cast aside for an extra throw pillow that becomes your greatest tormentor.

Use the above as a guide. Find a piece that speaks to the style and your budget.

The golden rule here is a little goes a long way. Change is best swallowed in small doses.
