5 BUDGET TIPS TO TRANSFORM YOUR BEDROOM
DOON’ IT RIGHT
One of the most affordable – yet most impactful – ways to transform your bedroom is to ditch your tired old doona cover in favour of crisp white linen or solid colour doona cover. ‘Go up a size (e.g. from Queen to King) with the doona cover so its edges wrap nicely around the mattress for a more luxurious look,’ says The Home interior stylist, Emma Blomfield.
Clutter and mess can be a handful – it can make the most beautifully decorated bedroom appear drab and unflattering. So recycle things you don’t use or need. ‘Do a thorough spring clean (yes, that means also cleaning your carpets and windows!) and reorganise your home for a fresh start this spring,’ recommends Katie Hume from Airtasker.
REFRESH YOUR WALLS
‘Painting your bedroom doesn’t have to be expensive or difficult. A fresh coat of paint can make a big impact. Whether you prefer a more neutral palette or bold colours, it’s all about creating a space that shines with your personal style’, says Rebecca Sacher from British Paints.
‘Your floor is the one part of the home you’re almost always in contact with. It’s important to select the right colours, patterns and textures as these can make or break an interior’s look,’ says Carpet Court ambassador Darren Palmer. ‘My exclusive Provincial Lane Premier Soft carpet range creates a dramatic impact, opening up a room’s warmth, energy and functionality.’
THROW SOME SHADE
‘Jazz up bedside lighting by changing the shades on an old pair of lamps or spray-painting the lamp bases with metallic spray paint for a new, modern look,’ says Emma Blomfield.
