If you get bored with your decor and wish some cheaper room makeover ideas, let me show you a few concepts and what to buy online for less to achieve your stylish upgrade. You may not be able to buy the more expensive pieces from the popular glitzy stores, but you can achieve a cheaper room makeover with these options via Amazon.
Easing Cost on Airbnb and Other Rental Makeovers
If you need to spruce up your bedrooms or living rooms for future guests, these cheaper room makeover ideas will steer you in the general direction to products. We also highlighted the new virtual living room makeover showroom on Amazon which you can use.
Cheaper Room Makeover Idea 1 – Freshen up the Old Sofa
It would be awesome to buy a new Sofa in the Amazon showroom. But if you are stuck with an ancient one, use a sofa cover. Thre are many offered on Amazon. Ikea sells the Ektorp fitted covers which are beautiful but they are not made the same, sadly. AS couches are varied in shape, depth and size, many purchasers have preferred this flexible cover type.
The Thick Sofa Covers 1/2/3/4 Seater Pure Color Sofa Protector Velvet … sofa cover is at present the most popular sofa cover on Amazon and can cover a 2 seater and an armchair. The velvety material repels water and stains.
Cheaper Room Makeover Idea 2 – Add The Ambiance
You may not have loads of dosh to revamp your space- whether bedroom, studio, dining kitchen. But adding the right lighting will create the ambience you wish – and you can do it for less rather than more. These days everyone should be using LED lighting to reduce electric costs.
LED is normally a blue-white daylight style lighting and quite bright. hat means it doesn’t work for every room in the house. White daylight is great for kitchens. Living rooms, dining and bedrooms normally need a softer more yellow lighting which also feels warmer and cosier and is not so bright. This used to be incandescent lighting but now you can buy LED bulbs with the softer yellow light.
And of course, the lamp or light fitting adds to the beauty and styling of your decor for your room. To learn more about lighting and ambience and a buying guide for your indoor lighting, have a read here.
I love this Versanora Arquer Arc Floor Lamp with Gold Shade and Black Marble Base. The bell-shaped shade is a better design than other similar models. The marble base adds the weighted base to stop it from tipping over.
The lamps aren’t very popular but it is ranked No 92 in Amazon’s best selling lamps.
Cheaper Room Makeover Idea 3 – Thermal curtains with Bling
A bit of bling won’t hurt a room, especially on a day without light. The bit of shine will reflect the light and thermal curtain will help block the draft out and keep you toasty warm. It also makes the spaces or rooms feel a little more luxurious.
These blinds also assist in noise reduction. And they are easy to wash and inexpensive. They tick the boxes and as a result are Amazon’s most popular blackout blinds.
Add a bit of sparkle with the various designs and colours which come in stars, splatter designs , waves and more. See the full review here.
Cheaper Room Makeover Idea 4 – Wall Candy
Perk up your rooms with some wall changes -it can completely renew the feeling of your space. Even the ugliest room colour can feel refreshed and beautified by just one wall of painted colour. You can also use wall a papers to convert your rooms from drab to dreamy.
There are two main ways to bring a room back to life. One is by using a colour blocking method – painting or wallpapering a wall, and the other is by using wall decals. If you are renting decals are the way to go to transforming a feeling in a space with minimal stress, mess or cost!
Removable decals are the best options if you are renting and they immediately upgrade dull boring spaces. Amazon has a wide range of them here.
Cheaper Room Makeover Idea 5 – Carpet Runners
Nothing is more comforting than a comfy rug underfoot. You can make the worst floor or carpet look cleaner and fancier and more comfortable with a great top rug or runner.
In particular walk off rugs are welcoming and add style, personality and colour to your space, whether a house or small flat. They also trap germs and mess out from your space! I’m a big fan of them.
Here are a few samples of ones I liked most but you can experiment with a variety of rugs for your space here.
Amazon’s best sellers are the most boring out because I guess they are safe and cheap. They are definitely the NOT the best to buy for styling up a place! Choose carefully for quality and image or effect on your space!
Cheaper Room Makeover Idea 5 – Dine In Style
Yeah, the dining room seems to have gone out of fashion. Except for special occasions …and maybe weekend Sunday brunches and dinners. If you still use your dining table, you can change the look of your dining room by simply using dining room chair covers.
In fact, why not have more than one set and really vamp up the room! My dining room is a celebration place, work space, family meeting space, art studio…. you get the picture!
