Quick fixes to modernise your bedroom - without spending a fortune

Bored of your bedroom and in need of a quick (and cheap!) change? 

Well, you don't need to break the bank or spend days doing DIY to see satisfying results with these décor ideas. We've rounded up our top 5 on-trend looks for this summer that involve minimal fuss and maximum fun. 

Go botanical

The botanical trend is a brilliant way to give an instant makeover to your bedroom. The key is not to overdo the foliage - think ‘pops’ of plants, rather than a total jungle. 

Keep the look modern by teaming tropical prints with geometric patterns and bold copper accessories for an on-trend look that works in any space. No DIY is needed for this total transformation - just a few quirky accessories, bedding and a rug.

Accessorise with classic pieces

You can make your bedroom look expensive without spending a fortune. Mirrored furniture creates a sophisticated, clean touch and even something as simple as a vase with flowers (they don’t have to be real) adds a pretty finish. Plus if you love the look of antiques but aren't too keen on the price tag our lovely Roman numeral clocks and classic pieces are a great way to 'fake' the look. 

Colour-wise - greys and whites offer a timeless clean, crisp, calm tone to your home.

Get a funky duvet cover

The ultimate cheap makeover is - a new duvet! 

We love adorable pandas so much, we thought we’d put them all over this stylish Pandamonium duvet set. Designed in easy-to-coordinate colours with a panda print on one side and bamboo pattern on the other, this set will add a quirky touch to even the most simple bedroom décor.

Hang some artwork

In the bedroom, choose personal art or photos that match surrounding colours. Plus you can create an eclectic but homely feel by mix and matching the frames - we love the mix of gold with distressed wood.

Pictures hung above the headboard give a nice focal point to the room and negate the need for a large, dominating canvas or picture to fill the space.

Get kitsch

Think pastel pinks and whites - but keep walls, floors and curtains pattern free. Then liven up your bedroom with interesting accessories like Victorian style bell jar pieces, mounted butterflies and faux period vases and flowers.
