Designing or redecorating your bedroom doesn’t have to be costly, if you are prepared to get creative, there are lots of money-saving tricks to help you create a tranquil bedroom. The bedroom tends to be neglected when it comes to redecoration, it’s a personal place that guests won’t always see but that doesn’t mean you should sacrifice making your room feel comfortable and cosy.

A good way to save on costs from the onset is to use bedroom design software to plan your room to the very last detail. Home design software is a computer-aided design programme that allows you to plan every aspect of your room; from the dimensions of your bed right down to the colour of your curtains. If your room is fully planned to the correct dimensions then you will know how much space you have and won’t make the mistake of purchasing ill-fitting furniture and wasting your money on unnecessary items. It also helps save money by making sure you have a theme for your room, or a set colour scheme, this means you won’t be buying bits willy-nilly and then deciding you don’t want to use them because they aren’t really ideal.

The bed is the focal point of any bedroom and it’s always best to invest in a good bed for your health and of course for a good night’s sleep. If you can’t afford to buy a new one, you could purchase bed parts and just invest in a new comfortable mattress. You can create a luxurious canopy-style bed by draping material from the ceiling and you can make your own spare duvet covers by sewing sheets together and attaching buttons. It’s always handy to have spare bed linen. Another way to customise your bed is to purchase a second hand headboard or even make your own. You can make a headboard from an old door, once it’s sanded down and varnished or painted, you’ll be surprised how professional it can look. Building your own headboard can take up a lot of time and if you are busy you can look for good second hand finds at car boot sales or on the internet.

Your bedroom is your refuge when you get home from work and want to relax so it’s important to keep it as uncluttered as possible. Make sure you remove all paperwork, diaries or other work-related things to avoid your bedroom turning into your second office. Have a good clean out and find store things away that you don’t use every day. Storage needn’t be expensive, you can purchase plastic boxes for next to nothing to go underneath your bed, or you could even grab some cardboard boxes from your local supermarket, they’re going under the bed so no one will see! You can also purchase special vacuum bags for spare duvets to be stored so they don’t collect dust, the vacuum bags suck your duvet into a small size so it can be stored away hardly taking up any room.

Working from a budget can help you create personalised pieces instead of buying generic high-street furniture or spending large sums of money on designer furniture. This will make your room more personalised and cosy.
