3 Tips for Remodelling your Bedroom Space (a guest post)

While the Christmas period may have been one of the best in recent times for brands, many are warning about the dangers of consumer spending in the New Year. Time waits for no man, however, and households are still required to pay bills and pursue additional home-improvement projects regardless of the time of year. For anyone who is looking to remodel their existing bedroom space, for example, January may be the ideal time to access financial bargains and complete their refurbishment program on a tight budget!

Taking this point on board, what are the key aspects to consider when looking to remodel your bedroom in the New Year? Consider the following: - 
Make the Bed your Focal Point

While your bedroom may have dual functionality, one of its purposes will always be to provide a comfortable environment in which you can rest and sleep. With this in mind, it is imperative that the bed becomes a strong and eye-catching focal point, around which you can integrate additional furniture and fulfil a wider design vision. In addition to this, you must also ensure that the bed is functional and fit for its primary purpose, so take the time to invest in a high quality, memory foam mattress from Bedzrus.
Apply Colour in a Considered and Sensible Manner

Given that the bedroom is supposed be an intimate space where you unwind and relax, the use of colour is particularly important. Using energised and bold colours in the bedroom space can be counter-productive, as they can make it extremely difficult to switch-off from conscious thought and the rigours of everyday life. Keeping this in mind, the most sensible option is to use pastel colours such as light blue and green, as these shades help to embellish and illuminate the space without overwhelming the inhabitants of the room.
Be Careful when Buying Furniture for your Bedroom
With a focal point in place and your walls decorated, purchasing furniture will be easier than it may otherwise seem. This is because the layout of your room has already been partially predetermined, while your use of colour will have helped you to determine which materials and shades to use throughout the rest of the project. So regardless of the precise amount of space remaining and your prevailing design ethos, you will be left with the relatively simple task or identifying items of furniture and purchasing them for the most competitive price. 

With these tips in mind, you should be able to remodel your bedroom space without spending too much on furniture or unwanted materials. Given the precarious nature of the economy, this could ultimately be worth its weight in gold!
