How to Redecorate a Bedroom for Cheap

Woman smoothing out new bedsheetsAre you ready for a fresh start? A new year calls for a new feel in your home. Why not start with one of the most important rooms in your home: your bedroom? Greet the new year with a new bedroom, but don’t spend a fortune redecorating!

Let’s redo your bedroom on a budget. Check out these five bedroom redecorating steps to transform a plain old “sleeping room” into the room of your dreams.

How to Redecorate a Bedroom

Right now, you’re probably thinking one of two things: “Let’s DO this!” or “Help! I don’t even know where to begin with redecorating my room!” If you’re in the second camp, you’ve come to the right place! Here’s how to get started on redecorating a bedroom:

1. Evaluate your current bedroom furniture and decor.

Before you go shopping for new bedroom furniture and decor, take a moment to consider your current bedroom setup. What do you like about the room? What do you dislike? Is the arrangement of furniture working for you? Is the paint color something you dread waking up to every morning? You might find that you want to start completely fresh, or you may realize that you want to keep some aspects of your bedroom the same (which can save you money on redecorating!).

2. Look for bedroom redecorating ideas you love.

Now that you know what you want to change, you don’t want to jump into redecorating a bedroom without a little bit of creative planning first! Find bedroom decorating ideas on Pinterest, or head to a paint store to choose a new color palette that inspires you. Pay attention to what colors, textures, and materials draw your eye. You’ll be spending lots of time in this room, so be sure to save ideas that genuinely suit your taste and make you feel comfortable and relaxed.

3. Choose your new bedroom set.

You’ve made your list of what you need out of your new bedroom setup. You’ve figured out what your decor tastes are. Now, it’s time for the fun part: shopping for bedroom furniture!

If you’re tight on space but need extra storage, consider an upgrade to the highly functional but oh-so-stylish Caitbrook Queen Storage Bed. This wood-look platform bed frame has multiple drawers for keeping clothing, books, chargers, and other bedroom essentials neatly tucked out of sight, and you’ll swoon over the sleek feel of the contemporary nickel hardware.Plus, if you’ve got a little extra space, it’s available in king-size, too!Caitbrook storage bed

With a fantastic selection of coordinating bedroom sets, standalone bed frames, and mattresses, Rent-A-Center is your one-and-done shopping destination for new bedroom furniture.

In some cases, we can even offer same-day delivery, so you don’t have to leave the house and interrupt your “decorating mojo!” If you have a few extra dollars in your bedroom redecorating budget, splurge on a new set of sheets that will give your bed a luxurious vibe.

4. Try a new furniture arrangement.

Whether you’re upgrading your bedroom furniture or repurposing what you have, nothing makes a room feel fresh like a different layout. Remember when you thought of things you didn’t like about your bedroom? Let’s fix some of those with a new design. Maybe your closet door doesn’t have space to open because your nightstand is in the way. Now is a great time to move it! Perhaps you don’t like that your bed faces a window. Put it on a different wall, or turn it to face a different way!

If you’re feeling limited by your furniture, try taking one piece of furniture out (for example, use one nightstand instead of two). If you still feel stuck, it may be time to upgrade to a multi-functional bedroom set so you can truly make the most of your space.

5. Add the finishing touches to your newly redecorated bedroom.

You’ve painted, upgraded your bedroom furniture, and rearranged at least four times until the room felt just right. Now what? It’s time for details! Accent pieces like lamps or picture frames can bring warmth and coziness to your space, but make sure you keep a balance of function and fashion. Save money with DIY projects for your bedroom like no-sew custom curtains, a painted headboard, a one-of-a-kind jewelry holder, and wall art made from yarn.

This step is where your personality can truly shine, so don’t be afraid to try something new. You can always return items that don’t suit your space (or, with Rent-A-Center, you can upgrade at any time to change up your look!).
