5 Step Enchanting Bedroom Makeover on the Cheap

Relaxation, Romance and Comfort

A Bedroom makeover doesn’t have to be expensive or hard. A few key decorating ideas can give a bedroom a completely different feel. And chances are you already have most of what you need at home. So have fun this weekend with these easy steps to the perfect bedroom makeover, and make your life a little sweeter.

Enchanting Bedroom Makeover: Step #1

The easiest and best way to give your bedroom makeover a romantic, elegant feel is to change the wall colors.

To save money, why not mix a few colors that you have lying around in the garage? If this means you’ll only have enough color to paint one wall, that’s just fine. Give every wall a different, though complimentary hue. If you don’t have enough paint, check out the discount paint section at your home improvement store. And don’t forget the ceiling either.

Paint a square in the middle of it to create the illusion of a tray ceiling. Here's my step-by-step article on painting a faux tray ceiling.


Enchanting Bedroom Makeover: Step #2

Increase the elegance of your bedroom makeover by giving character to the floor. Add a beautiful accent rug to cover your carpet or floors. This will add a plush feeling under your feet, as well as bring out the highlights in your walls and ceiling.

Maybe there’s a rug in another room that you can move to the bedroom? Check out closeouts in home improvement and home decorating stores. Have fun with your choice, but be sure it compliments your walls.


Enchanting Bedroom Makeover: Step #3

There’s no need to replace your bedding with expensive new things. Reduce the cost of your bedroom makeover by simply buying a beautiful set of sheets. Buy an extra flat sheet to toss over your bed as a cover. This will keep the bed fresh and inviting.

Add accent pillows for beauty, but don’t overdo it. Let your bedroom makeover be all about comfort, relaxation and romance.


Enchanting Bedroom Makeover: Step #4

Add whimsical decorations to give character to your bedroom makeover. Hang a wind chime at the window, or a gauzy mosquito net over the bed. Add a water fountain for the soothing sound of water and the purifying scent of rain.

Finally, finish your bedroom makeover with whimsical elements like fairy decor or dragonflies, shoes or decorative keys, silk butterflies or lantern decor.


Enchanting Bedroom Makeover: Step #5

Complete your bedroom makeover with an electric fireplace and two small seats before it. To save money consider building a mantle around a small fireplace, or buy a mantle separately and install a cheap electric fireplace unite in it.

Make the seats before the fireplace bean bags for fun, or cheap wicker chairs for simple elegance. Sitting by the firelight to read and chat will become a favorite pastime.
