Where your bed is situated in the bedroom can make a huge difference to the appearance. Have a play around with moving the bed to different places and see how it looks, it gives a whole new aspect and you will see different opportunities for the space. Another easy way to change the look of the bedroom if by simply changing the bedding.

Wall decor

If you are hoping to repaint or wallpaper your walls, have a look on ebay, local Facebook groups and in charity shops as well as the sale sections of DIY stores. If you aren’t going as far as redecorating all the walls, you could hang tapestries up, wall stickers, rearrange pictures and photos or get a canvas printed for the wall.


It’s amazing how much stuff we hoard over time, from the clothes in our wardrobe to the trinkets we collect. Have a good sort through and either sell or take what you don’t need to the charity shop. Your room will immediately seem larger and will look refreshed.

Changing your lamp shades or light fittings can give a whole new feeling to a room. You could go for a clean cut, minimalistic look or have an extravagant light fitting that looks far more expensive than it is, thanks to shops like B&M bargains and Wilko.


Give the carpet a clean, it’s incredible how much better it looks once it has had a deep clean. Cover up that carpet you don’t like with a rug. You could have a look underneath the carpet and see what the floorboards are like, it could be that with a little hard work, you might have beautiful wooden floors. If you want a new carpet, keep an eye on the local Facebook groups and eBay.
