Often, you’ll go into your bedroom to sleep (obviously), chill, watch Netflix, paint your nails; the list goes on. Your bedroom space can be so much more than somewhere you get dressed and sleep; it can be a haven to properly unwind and clear your mind. There are an array of ways to create a design-focused and aesthetically pleasing room to rest your head, and you don’t have to spend a fortune in the process. Whether you dream about a vintage boudoir atmosphere or a sleek and modern hotel vibe; there are ways to update, improve, and enhance the space.
The more you love your bedroom, the more time you’ll end up spending in there relaxing, which will have a positive effect on your well-being and mental health, so it’s worth the effort. The following are some ideas, inspiration, and advice for those who want to update their bedroom interior, without overspending, for a dreamy sanctuary in their home.
Little Decor Touches
It’s worth focusing on those little, personal touches that will ensure your bedroom doesn't look like anyone else’s, and so that you feel at home and secure in your little sanctuary. Start with images; printing your favourite friends & family photos will surround you with your favourite faces as you drift off, and they’ll be there smiling when you wake up. Stock up on screws & fixings online so that you have a plentiful supply to put things up, or make changes to a wall or two.
Much like wooden furniture; frames of various shapes and sizes can be sourced from an array of secondhand stores and online auctions for next to nothing. You can set to work printing the right sized photo to fit the frames, and cleaning and painting them to tie in with the rest of your room. Add in a vintage mirror or two, a few of your trinkets on your bedside, and some foliage or flowers to the space (they can totally be faux, and will last longer). Putting effort into sourcing items carefully, restoring things, and putting thoughtful touches around the space will give you a beautiful bedroom to dream in, whatever your budget.
Gosh That’s Cosy
You can now turn your focus to more of the decoration & textural side that a dreamy bedroom space should have in abundance. The cosy, comfortable, and soft touches in a bedroom interior can turn it from functional to luxurious, so it’s worth investing your time and effort in sourcing a few things to help you relax. Obviously, your bed sheets are items that you don’t want to have to source second hand. However, it’s worth scouring the internet, and finding items at a lower price; auction sites and independent businesses might be a great place to start.
Keeping your sheets in a crisp and breathable cotton will ensure that you have a soft and cosy night’s sleep at the end of a long day. You’ll also have far more patterns and colours to choose from if you stick to a cotton or cotton blend fabric. Make sure that you give everything a good feel before putting it in the washing machine, or buying it in store; some cotton blends can feel a little scratchy, so it’s always better to check before you commit.
