If you’ve been craving a bedroom makeover this winter but are looking for wallet-friendly ways to revamp your space, there’s no need to embark on an entire redesign project at home. From adding artistic touches to your wall to bringing in a fresh vibe with a chic new headboard, here are our top five ways to easily update your bedroom on a budget.

1) Update your bed with vibrant accent pillows: While it may be challenging to afford the gorgeous canopy bed of your dreams, the look of bold pillows brings a colourful accent to an ordinary bed. Try adding a hot pink pillow to black and white bed linens, or accessorizing a simple bed in style with a pop of fierce red.

2) Add playful decals to your wall for a creative touch: If you can’t afford to paint all four walls of your space, try adding the stencilled effect of inspiring phrases or abstract designs to a single wall. A basic black decal will add a striking touch to a light-coloured wall, while a vibrant purple design can awaken a neutral space.

3) Bring warmth to your personal space with a trendy area rug: If the lifeless hardwood floors in your bedroom need a finishing touch, try bringing an area rug into your space. Traditional décor addicts can use a grey or creamy white rug to tone down bright accent walls or furnishings, while daring decorators can try a trendy cowhide rug for a textured effect.

4) Switch up tired beige bed linens for a quilt in a rich Marsala shade: The look of a new quilt offers an instant makeover to any bedroom which is craving colour. If you’re not ready to splurge on new furniture or carpeting, add a quilt in a deep and inviting colour to your bed. Pantone’s Color of the Year, Marsala, brings life to wooden headboards or white décor.

5) Add a revamped headboard for the feel of an entirely new room: Surprisingly, a chic new headboard can change your bedroom décor without the need for a complete overhaul of your space. Better Homes and Gardens recommends keeping it creative, by using a salvaged wooden door as a statement headboard. For a DIY touch, paint your headboard in a vivid teal, violet or pale blue shade.
