Ways to decorate your bedroom for free

Each one of us spends a lot of time in the bedroom. On an average every individual spends atleast 8 hours in their bedroom at night.  Budget constraints and shortage of time might come in the way of decorating bedrooms and often the main concentration is on other areas like kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms. However there are a number of ways in which one can decorate the bedroom without spending anything on it.

The easiest and the most hassle free thing to do is re arrange the things in the room. The bed can be rearranged and put anywhere in the room, diagonal or in the centre of the room. The room will get an altogether new feel by making these few simple rearrangements. One can also try and find fabric items which match or complement the colours in the room. One could use tablecloths, towels, scarves, pillowcases etc. Even a pretty scarf or shawl gracefully draped over the foot of the bed could look impressive. One could even wrap these items around cushions and pin them at the back. This will give them an entirely different look.

Plants could be used to liven up the bedroom. The extra plants around the house could be moved to a nice spot in the bedroom. For those who do not have any plants in the house, they are easily available in the market or one could even ask from relatives and friends. Some outdoor plants make great houseplants. Ivy and groundcovers are some examples. One could decorate them in nice pots and use such colours as would complement the bedroom colours.

One could get some old sentimental pieces such as a wedding veil or invitation, photographs, diplomas etc and display them in the bedroom. It will look great with these new accessories around. Potpourris are also great to keep around the house as they have a nice fragrance. One can easily make this at home without having to spend any money. Dry orange peels mixed with a pinch of sweet spices such as cinnamon, ginger and allspice make a great potpourri. Once it is made one should keep this in an open bowl in the house for that all day lovely aroma. During summers, one can use flowers to decorate the room. Wild daisies and roses smell wonderful and these could be used around the room.

    I love the looks of their rooms. My problems, in addtion to lack of funds, is I don’t even know where to start.
    Does anyone know of any websites where you punch in info about the “look” you are trying to get, your room dimensions, what you already have, etc. and then they will tell you what to add, and where to buy/get it?
