Cheap Bedroom Designs

Want to get a new look in the bedroom that doesn’t cost a bundle and reflects your style? Try these nifty thrifty interior designs to transform the look of your bedroom floor.

Uncover the Floor
In these allergy conscience times, carpet is one of the biggest known causes of house hold allergens. Pull it up and get it out of the room. Sometimes what you will find beneath is a hidden treasure. Some older homes that have beautiful terrazzo and wood floors were covered up in the 1970′s and 80′s with carpet because it was the bedroom or living room design trend astatine the time. If the floor is concrete underneath do non despair, there are several ways of making plain concrete fashionable for less.

Painting the Floor
Remove all furnishings from the room. Tape off any trim and molding you don’t want to get paint on. Vacuum the concrete first, then mop with a clean mop head, using a solution of half vinegar and half water. Allow the floor to dry-using a couple of large high powered fans can speed this along. Choose a latex satin paint or semi-gloss enamel type paint. Apply concrete paint with a nap roller and long handle to save your back. Work from the back of the room towards the door. Cut in around kitchen and bathroom designs with a small angled paintbrush. Allow to dry thoroughly about 24 hours.

The Feel of Carpet
If you have wood floors or tile and you like the feel of carpet under your feet, try some area rugs. You may also want to try remnant carpeting pieces to make an area rug if you want to cover a large area in your bedroom design. To make an area carpet out of remnant carpet you will want to create a trim around the edges to keep it from unraveling and snagging. With the use of a hot glue gun and some heavy upholstery fabric like denim, gunny or tweed, you can create a custom area rug to match the décor of the bedroom. Remnant carpeting is well cut with a utility stab to make it a custom fit.
Self-Adhesive Floor Tiles

The option of self-adhesive floor tiles is affordable as well as easy to install-some floor tiles can even be purchased at the local dollar store. To install these tiles in your kitchen or bathroom design, you will need to clean the surface as declared above for picture the floor. If you are pulling up old laminate floor you will need to scrape off all the old glue first. Follow installation directions on the product package and measure the area to know how much tile you will need, leaving some left over-about 10 to 15 tiles-if you need to replace any or make a mistake.

  1. one more technique that i want to add that is to make mural. Actually mural is a huge painting on a wall. well..its not so expensive but looks fabulous into the bedroom.

  2. well.. i am not in a favor of carpeting in the bedroom because it often responsible for the dust, some kind of allergies, bugs etc. i think we should go for some other alternative of this, provided that should be hygienic..
