Design Tricks to Make Your Bedroom Look More Expensive2
Longing for a luxurious bedroom? With just a few smart tricks you can make your sleep space feel indulgent and relaxing without breaking the budget. Try these simple ideas for creating a bedroom that looks more expensive than it really is.
If you splash out on just one thing in the bedroom, make it a padded headboard. A soft head rest is a smart way to make a cheaper bed look way more expensive. It not only feels wonderful when you’re reading in bed, but it also instantly adds a luxurious atmosphere.
Velvet is a classic covering for a headboard as it has a beautiful sheen that looks plush. Many retailers sell standard-sized velvet headboards, or search online for companies that offer a made-to-measure service.
For a DIY alternative, you’ll need a piece of plywood, some cut foam and a layer of wadding – all the same width as your bed and as tall as you fancy. Make your chosen fabric slightly larger. Layer the materials, putting the plywood at the back and the wadding at the front, then wrap your fabric over it. Pull the fabric neatly around the back of the plywood and attach it with a staple gun.
A feature wall of patterned wallpaper behind the bedhead is a great way to add a designer touch to a room. By only papering one wall you’ll also cut down costs, which will allow you to choose a slightly more luxurious wallpaper.
This geometrical pattern enhances the contemporary feel of the space. In a more classic bedroom, choose a traditional design for an elegant look.
