The bedroom is the place we spend a lot of our time, yet it’s the most neglected when it comes to decorating.
Nowadays, money may be a significant factor!
Here are some great tips for brightening up your space with no money at all!
A new fresh arrangement always makes a room feel new.
Don’t be afraid to try new angles for your furniture.
Place your bed on a diagonal slant, or even right in the middle of the room!
2 Search your drawers for scarves, tablecloths, or even pillowcases that compliment your color scheme.
You can use things you already own to soften a dresser top or the edge of your nightstand.
You could also try laying a pretty shawl over the foot of the bed.
If you already have throw pillows on your bed, you can also wrap these fabrics around the pillows for a new look and fasten it with a safety pin.
3 Add a plant to your room.
Look around your house to see if one of your existing plants would be happier in your bedroom, then move it there!
If you can’t find a plant ready for relocation, make one!
Many plants can be grown from cuttings.
You can do this with your existing houseplants, one a friend may let you cut, or even some outdoor plants.
Ivy and many shade ground covers are very good houseplants
You can even relive your childhood a bit and grow a cut potato, pineapple, or carrot tops in a pinch!
For containers, look into your kitchen cupboards.
Old teapots and cups, glass bowls, even baking dishes can make unique containers.
4 Add memorabilia to your room.
You could keep a photo of each one of your children when they were small next to your bedside, and it always makes you smile.
How about hanging your wedding veil from the headboard, or framing your wedding invitation or old love letters?
5 Add a fragrance
If you don’t have any potpourri or incense in the house, cut up some orange peels and allow them to dry, then mix with whatever sweet spices you have in your cupboard. (It only takes a pinch, try cinnamon, ginger, or allspice.)
Place your potpourri in an open bowl in your room to freshen and inspire!
Later in the summer, make sure to include flowers in your room.
If you don’t have roses or other scented flowers in your yard, roadside daisies can smell great too!
There you have it. You just learned about a few small changes that require no money.
Try them and make your bedroom a better, more positive place for you to start and end each day!
