House and Home

 

Bedrooms aren’t just for sleeping. They’re also about passion. But during the course of life, many of us forget about this aspect of our bedrooms, and they become neglected.

 

The great thing about choosing a glamorous bedroom design is that it allows you to be really adventurous. No more neutral colors and white emulsion walls: glamming up your bedroom is a chance to experiment. From French-style furniture to dark and moody colors, there are dozens of ways to glam up your bedroom. Let’s take a look.

 

Choose Rich Accent Colours

If your room is neutral – which is very common among attic bedrooms – then start off by experimenting with accent colors. Try changing the color of the bed sheets to a bold red or purple. Bright colors will contrast well with neutral colors in the rest of the room, injecting some passion into otherwise dreary surroundings.

Urgh! Why oh why, do most dining room renovations and redecoration so expensive? It seems to cost a fortune whenever you want to even swap the smallest thing around. That is why most folks just end up sticking with what they have. But there is a way to do up your dining room without ending up on the breadline. Read on to find out more.

 

Paint the walls yourself

First of all, you need to accept the fact that there will be a significant amount of work to do yourselves. Why? Well, it’s because it is way cheaper than getting professional builder or decorator in to do it.

 

Of course, it does have to be something that is safe for you to do such as painting the walls or even knocking a wall through to make a bigger room. Whereas things like lighting and electrics need to be done by qualified professionals.

 

If you are taking on the job of painting yourself make sure that you have all the equipment that you will need before you start. For instance, you are going to need a ladder, brushes, rollers, a paint tray, and most of all masking tape.

 

Why tape? Well, it’s the easiest way to get a clean line and corner when painting walls. They even do special stuff in the hardware store that is designed to stick on paintwork but won’t damage it. Believe me, it’s worth investing in!

Second-Hand Bargains

 

Next, of all, you will need to consider the furniture that you have in the dining room. If it’s no longer your style or it is unsuitable for your family’s situation, then it’s a good idea to replace it. But dining room furniture sure isn’t cheap for the most part!

 

So why not take a look at a local auction, or on internet auction site to see what other people are trying to sell. You can pick up some great bargains on items that have very little damage this way. Of course, you do need to be savvy about bidding on them to get the best deal.

 

First of all, you have to make sure you have the money, which means checking your savings, or getting a product like these quickloans online, or you might just miss out! It can also be crummy when someone outbids you at the last minute so make sure that you add a reminder to your phone or use some software that will ensure you get what you are bidding on.

 

Get Crafty

 

Obviously bidding on soft furnishing and furniture from an auction isn’t the only way to get what you want for your dining room renovation. You can get crafty as well.

When we welcome guests into our home, we want them to feel comfortable and at ease, first and foremost. For many hosts, the idea that their house guests might feel on edge is unthinkable. So we offer them drinks, we give them fresh, fluffy towels, and we let them take control of the television remote. But the bedroom they will sleep in is the biggest factor in deciding their comfort levels. Privacy and space are essential, but the decor will also have an impact. If your guest room could do with a little bit of TLC, here are some ways you’re guaranteed to bring the comfort factor to the next level.

So, you’ve started to look around your bedroom and notice some things you wish could change. Maybe the lighting just seems a little off or your bedding is looking a little rough. No matter what you might see in your bedroom, we all have those moments when we wish a lot could change. However, most of us are also on a budget and can’t afford an entire bedroom makeover like those we see on TV in those luxury apartments. The good news is that there are tons of DIY ideas out there on the Internet on how you can give your bedroom a bit of a facelift. Keep reading below to learn more about them.

 

Create a new wooden shelving unit.

A fantastic and pretty easy way to give your bedroom a new look is to add a DIY wooden shelving unit or two on your wall. Most of the times, our bedroom walls can look a little bare. Adding shelves that hold your valuables or some cool knick knacks and paintings is great for any bedroom. All you have to do is find an old wooden slat that’s laying around in your garage or one you can find at a local hardware store. You can refinish the wood if you would like or paint it a color that matches the style of your room. And then all you have to do is get it up on the wall and get decorating!

 

Upgrade your dressers.

Do you have boring and plain dressers in your bedroom? These old wooden dressers can be a serious downer when you’re looking to spruce up your style. An easy way to solve this problem is getting some wallpaper or paint from the store that will add some more color to your room. Attach the wallpaper or paint the front of your dresser and you automatically have a brand new dresser! This is a super easy DIY project that won’t take a lot of your time.

 

Change up the drawer handles.

A great project for your weekend is to change up the handles that you have on your bedroom drawers. You can find some affordable ones that look great at the hardware store and easily install them on the fronts of the drawers. This is an easy way to give these units a face lift and add some new style to your bedroom. Your room won’t look like those at The Conrad or any other luxury apartment right away, but you’re slowly getting there!

 

Make a wooden pallet table.  

One last DIY project that just takes a bit of construction is constructing your own wooden pallet table to place in front of your bed. All you have to do is find a wooden pallet that might just be laying around in your basement. You can refinish it and place it in front your bed to act as a table for magazines, candles, or bedtime essentials.

All of these ideas are going to be pretty easy to get done and affordable for your budget. Which one are you going to try this weekend?
