Even the smallest change can make a big difference when it comes to the charm of an all new décor.

A new lick of paint can really be useful when it comes to renovating your bedroom. Choose your favourite colour, or one that will make you happy when you see it every day. There is research that says certain bedroom colours make your brain respond in different ways, like blue for relaxation, purple for creativity and it is even claimed that too much red in a room can give you a headache.
Get a rug
Rather than spending a fair amount of money on a new carpet, great results can be achieved with the addition of a rug. They also have a lot of use in a bedroom that has a laminate flooring, and stop the floor from being cold underneath your feet if you get up in the night.
Clean and move furniture around
Moving your bed or other furniture around can have an impressive effect on a bedroom, a change to the layout can make the room bigger or smaller. When finished, it can look like a completely different room. Altering things, like moving your bed to underneath your window, can really free up excess space.
Vinyl’s, pictures, posters
Putting up new art within your home is the perfect way to make things feel different. There is some very chic art out there that will give any bedroom a glamorous touch. If you are renting your house and can’t have marks left on the wall, try using wall vinyls. They leave no blotches and are reusable, just peel them off when you leave and you’re good to go.
New bed linen
There is nothing quite like sleeping in a brand new duvet cover. A good quality one can really make the difference when it comes to being warm and comfortable at night, and if you colour code your room then a matching duvet cover can be just the thing to make the room stand out.
Change your curtains
Curtains are useful for a lot more than just keeping out the light. They also keep your bedroom warm, give you privacy and turn your room into an interior designers dream. Picking out curtains that have a similar colour to other items in your room can bring the whole thing style together and make it appear very professional.
There are a huge number of accessories out there that can really make a difference to any room. Purchasing candles, fairy lights or a bed canopy can be great for creating a girly atmosphere, or alternatively use beanbags, games consoles and a good sized desk to really create a haven for the man in your life.
Dip dye tables and chairs
A fantastic and cheap way to make your room pop. Take any bits of old furniture and dip part of the legs in a different colour, perhaps the colour you have on the wall or curtains. It can really make your room look eye catching and chic, all for the cost of a tin of paint.
Correct lighting in the bedroom is essential. It can create just the right ambience, or can give you a headache because it is too bright. Consider lamps, mood lighting or dimmer switches for attaining the perfect shade.
