Give mirrors a faux frame

Add some wall decals

Give you side tables a fresh coat of paint
Its one of the oldest tricks in the book, but still one of the most effective and cost effective ways to make a difference. When changing larger pieces of furniture you can paint smaller items like side tables instead of replacing them.
Upgrade older items
If you have some treasured items of furniture, upgrading them is a cost effective way of modernising. You can replace the handles and rollers on draws to give them a new lease of life, or reshape an old mirror.
Add some decorative books
Its no coincidence that designer bedrooms in magazines often have bookshelves stacked with books. No, its not a regression on modern technology, its a modern decorative decision. You can cover the books in the paper of your choice, incorporate the colour scheme you are working to and add some punchy patterns as desired.
Use chalkboard paint on a focal wall
If you have not heard of chalkboard paint, its paint that does exactly as it sounds. Paint a wall with the product and you have a chalkboard to work with. This is a great option for creative people who can be decisive! Simply do a chalk design, and if youre not happy with it just wipe it off.
Dye your cushions
Tie-dying has almost become something of a forgotten art. Granted it was popular back in the 70s, but there is a lot more you can do with it than the generic pattern. Pick up some different dye colours and get creative with it, you can go for squares, zig zags, the possibilities are limitless.
The celling and bedside lampshades a ready built and waiting to be re-covered. They arent going to follow a redesign of the room on their own, so get some fabric and do it yourself. You can have a designer looking lampshade in a matter of minutes, and well within that shoestring budget youre working to.
There are quite a few actionable tip above, and many can be applied to different items of furniture. This is proof that it doesnt need to be expensive to achieve a designer look in a bedroom, and you dont need to be a DIY expert either.
