Redecorating the Main Bedroom on a Shoestring

It doesn’t take a huge bank account to take your main bedroom from feeling like your teenage bedroom to the sanctuary from a noisy world that it should be.

And, it doesn’t take a lot of time either.

Broken into chunks, you can redecorate your main bedroom over the course of one, two or three weekends, depending on how much time you want to devote during each session.

Here are some tips that won’t break the bank to get you started;

Come up with a vision for the space

  • What does your ideal bedroom look like?
  • Is it a quiet place in which to seek solitude?
  • Or, is it a place where you enjoy the company of your children, reading, watching TV or roughhousing on the bed?

Think about how you use the room now and use that as a guide everything from paint colour to accessories.

Paint is the foundation for everything else

If you’ve ever been presented with the dilemma of trying to decide on a paint colour, you know how challenging it can be.

Standing in front of the paint samples at the local Paint shop or Hardware, you’re presented with an overwhelming number of choices.

Then, consider that “Room colour, particularly in your home, can dramatically affect moods, feelings and emotions,” according to Dr. Julia Shugar with Creedmore Psychiatric Center.

Babies cry more in yellow rooms and blue in the kitchen helps you curb your appetite.

The best way to help you decide on colour is to do some online research. Pinterest is full of ideas – just enter the color or mood you’re considering into the search box and you’ll be presented with pages of tips.

We found some brilliant paint colour ideas by searching “relaxing bedroom” on Pinterest. See the results here. Or let a psychologist walk you through the best choices at Food52.com.

Psychologists, by the way, suggest that the most invigorating colors are “saturated but not too bright, such as Kelly greens.” Saturation, by the way, describes the intensity of a color, according to the folks at Techopedia.com.

Colour scheme

Once you’ve figured out the primary colour of the room, it’s time to determine your colour scheme.

Once you have new paint on the walls you will need to determine a colour scheme, designed around the paint color.

Schemes to consider include:

Complementary

Complementary colours come from opposite sides of the colour wheel. For instance, blue paired with orange.

In decorating, it’s a good idea to choose one soft shade and one bold. For instance, a soft blue with bold orange. Check out the slide show at BHG.com.

Monochromatic

Monochromatic colour schemes involve using different shades of one colour. For instance, paint the walls in Behr’s Forever Denim and use Rain Dance and Superior Blue as accent colors (for the bedspread, rug, accessories, etc.)

Prefer griege? Consider Sherwin Williams’ Repose Gray for the walls and then incorporate pops of Gauntlet Gray and Eider White.

Now, dress it up

Choosing accent pieces for the master bedroom is the fun part of the process. Curtains, bedding, a rug or two – they can all add immensely to the feel you’re looking for. They also add texture, softness and even edginess, depending on what you choose.

If you’re going for the look of a luxury resort hotel room, you’ll need loads of pillows to stack on the bed, a small table and a chair (or two) and artwork to carry on your color scheme.

And, speaking of artwork, paintings and photographs are fine, but consider three-dimensional pieces as well. Find inspiration online at HGTV.com, AllModern.com and NeimanMarcus.com.
