For some of us chronic recluses, our bedroom is our everything – it’s where we work, watch TV, sleep and hang out by ourselves – it’s our haven and our haven needs to look amazing. You may have considered upgrading your room a couple of times but realize how expensive things are and just let that idea fly with the wind.
Well, here are a couple of inexpensive ways to make your room so beautiful you never want to leave:
First step, clean it up
It’s so easy to fall into a state where there are clothes, a few chocolate wraps and half a bowl of uneaten ice cream lying around the bedroom. Clutter can make a room go from glam to flop. Clean up your room and get rid of all the stuff you know in your heart you will never use. Hang your cords on a cloth hanger, arrange your books and documents in a neat stack or better yet, get a wall shelf.
