5 Easy Ways To Remodel A Bedroom On A Budget

Our bedrooms are our sanctuaries. The one place where we can get away from everything and disappear. Okay, this might not be the case for everyone but you have to admit, for those of us lucky to have a bedroom of our own it is sacred ground. When it’s a mess, we don’t want to spend much time there.

I might go as far as saying that a bedroom that doesn’t meet our aesthetic needs could inadvertently disrupt our sleep. No matter the reason, you want to redecorate your bedroom and aren’t looking to spend an arm and a leg doing it. Millions of people around the world can identify with that concept so here are some ways to make that happen.

Make Pillowcases

There are the pillows we sleep on and then there are the pillows we throw on the bed to give it that little bit something extra that designers love. Unfortunately, when your taste changes your pillows have covers that, for the most part, stay the same. That is, unless you know how to sew!

If you have the tools then this is a fun way to change things up in your room without spending a ton. For those of you who don’t have one, I highly suggest you look into budget-friendly sewing machines. DIY projects are a great way to save money when remodeling and having the ability to sew opens a big door for frugal options.

Change the Walls

Changing the color of your room could be just what you need to make it look new. If you have light blue walls maybe it’s time to go for a bold red. Or you could add a border or some wallpaper. The idea is to make a real change, which is always good for you.

Something to keep in mind when you start contemplating colors to paint remember that the darker the color the more difficult it is to cover. This might not seem like a big deal at first but, when you go to sell a house neutral colors are important. So just keep that in mind.

Add Some Art

Art is subjective, which is a good thing in this great big world with millions of opinions. When you are redecorating this ideology comes in handy when it comes to your pocketbook. Sure, some people might be able to afford the ten-thousand-dollar piece they found in a boutique art gallery in the hippest part of town.

But, other people can’t or simply don’t want to spend that kind of dough. Maybe it’s out of their budget or they aren’t investors. Still, adding art is a fun way to change the look of a room. To illustrate how inexpensively this can be done, I have a friend who bought paint-by-number sets and put them up when they were finished. Another option worth consideration is removable wallpaper.

Add Some Green

Plants are a fun and inexpensive way to redecorate any room. There are so many kinds that can add a positive vibe to any room. This may be challenging if you don’t have a good window for the sun in your bedroom but, if your room gets a good amount of sunlight there is no end to the ways plants can enhance your space.

You can find inexpensive plants and pots at the local thrift stores. Once you get a green thumb, if you don’t have one already, you can split off plants and let them grow to create even more plants. Beware that some plants are toxic to pets so if you have family members with fur, feathers or scales be sure to research your selections for toxins to your pets.

Add A Mirror

When you think of a mirror on the wall you might get a mental image of a wall from the 1980s where there are three mirrors fastened to a wall that looks, for lack of a better term, outdated. While we may not like outdated looks, the idea is brilliant and still works all the same. If you have a small room this is a nice, cheap way to give it a larger feel.

You can buy an antique mirror at a second-hand shop and lean it up against the wall or find a bunch and make a collage. There are tons of ways to utilize mirrors, which can be purchased rather inexpensively if you look in the right places.


These are just a few ways in which you can give your bedroom a new look without putting a huge dent in your wallet. Yet, these are just a few ways. You can add a rug, some bookshelves, even find a cool lace runner to put over the top of your dresser. All of these ideas can be done without spending a lot. You can use this idea in your kitchen.

The key is to know where to find these items. Your best chances are at the thrift or second-hand stores we already mentioned. There are also garage and estate sales. Online there are a myriad of places where people sell the stuff they don’t want anymore. There are some great finds out there. All you have to do is hunt them down.
