8 budget-friendly ways to update your bedroom

Updating your bedroom doesn't have to involve costly renovations or major purchases. By creatively using accessories and smaller pieces of furniture, you can create the look you want on a budget.

Here's how:

Designer pillow fabrics transform even the most generic bedding into a custom-coordinated style statement.

1. Designer pillow fabrics

These transform even the most generic bedding into a custom-coordinated style statement.

Source quality remnants from fabric retailers like HertexFabric LibraryBlack FabricsTwine Fabric and others, where the selection includes high-end fabrics priced well below wholesale.

2. Ready-made draperies

These offer considerable savings and work well for just about any standard window. 

Most fabric supply companies offer an in-house curtain making service and a good selection of fabrics and drapery headers. 

Before going shopping, take detailed measurements of the window and its exact location on the wall. 

3. Fine Bedding

When it comes to fine bedding, don't settle for anything less than the absolute best you can afford.

4. Blinds and Curtains

Looking for a new bedroom look? Why not change the blinds and curtains? 

Curtains are available in a wide variety of patterns and fabrics - choose a colour that works with your theme or try something entirely different.

Sheer drapes and velvet curtains are two of today's hottest trends.

5. Original Art 

Original art is a worthwhile investment that can be used to inject personality into the room. 

Although you're likely to spend quite a bit for small oil paintings, there are other affordable options like original prints, photography and watercolors that you can choose from. If you want to find original and unique artwork, attend local art fairs and annual exhibits. 

6. Headboard Frame

A headboard frame that you can cover yourself in an affordable linen or cotton is a budget-friendly alternative to buying a handcrafted wood bed frame. 

Even though this is a cheaper option, you won’t have to sacrifice style. 

Beautiful artwork can be found in any art shop. You could also frame your favorite photos or pictures from books or magazines to add that personal touch.

7. Paint the Walls -  This is one of the best ways to give your bedroom a lift.

A fresh coat of paint will make your bedroom feel brighter and cleaner. 

Try a bold new color or a soft neutral for a totally new look. 

8. Artwork, mirrors, shelving

All of these are easy ways to dress up the walls in your bedroom.

Beautiful artwork can be found in any art shop. You could also frame your favorite photos or pictures from books or magazines to add that personal touch.

Simple or elaborate, a framed mirror is not only an attractive addition, but will help make your bedroom look bigger.

Wall shelves are easy to install, and make the perfect home for accessories like framed photos, candles or books that speak to your personality.
