Bedroom Makeover For Only $500!

By Abbie Osborne-Wilson

You’ve finally decide it’s time to update your bedroom; those “New Kids on the Block” posters are really dating your decor. However, you don’t have enough cash to splurge on something big and fancy.

No problem. You can make fab out of drab with a bedroom redecorating scheme that will cost a mere $500.

First, choose a theme. Decorating becomes much easier with a central design idea in mind. Choosing the furniture and accessories will be a breeze if you know what look you want to achieve for your bedroom. As we are looking at a limited expenditure, going minimalist is your best option. You don’t have to buy a lot of things to beautify your room.

Second, as you decide on a theme, the color follows suit. There’s no faster way to apply change than to replace the color. Paint the walls with the color that reflects your theme or the atmosphere that you want. Alternatively, you can paint only one section of the wall with a vivid shade and leave the rest of the walls a light, neutral or white color.

Bedrooms are supposed to be serene places, so consider a calming blue, a restful green or a deeper neutral such as mocha for your painting. This doesn’t mean the color has to be boring; it can be intense, but in a small dose that doesn’t keep you up at night. Use good quality paint and you might spend as much as $40.

Shell out money for a new bed frame. Believe me, it will make a world of difference. For as little as $125, you can already get a good frame. For a minimalist style, choose a frame with sharp and sleek lines and not the bulky one.

Bypass the typical nightstand for an occasional table made with an aluminum base and a glass tabletop. This style has several advantages: It is easier to keep clean, it adds different textures to the room for more visual interest, and it carries out the sleek urban design. A table such as this typically runs about $55.

Add a chair to complete the comfort factor of the bedroom. A contemporary-styled chair with thick cushions and soft upholstery is perfect. Chairs that have nice embellishments and sleek lines are around $200. Quite pricey yes, but a good investment. If you want a quick change for your living room, you can always borrow this chair.

Hmmm…everything seems to be in place, isn’t it? A new paint, bed frame, table and chair. But hey! Decorating won’t be complete without a shag rug. That’s right, adorn your bedroom floor with a soft and beautiful floor decor. Say goodbye to a hard floor. With $55, you’ll already have a good quality shag rug.

Isn’t it surprising how these few pieces have perked up a dull, drab sleeping chamber? And to think, you did it all for less than $500. There’s enough left over for a bottle of sparkling wine to celebrate your success!

Don’t be ripped off by imitations. Be sure to buy authentic colored flokati rugs directly.
