Updating outdated bathroom inexpensively

Start by repositioning the bed in a different location (at no cost).

Putting your art on display and using proper forms of lighting is one of the most important things to remember.
Lighting in any space needs to come from more than one source to create different moods and atmospheres.
Places like Home Goods are perfect for fun, fresh accents on the cheap.
A new pair of lamps can be picked up for just to complete the look.
To top off your new clean room, buy a tree or a few plants for fresh air and good energy.
Next, purchase a new duvet cover and pillows for about 0, and use the other 0 for accessories, such as a cool mirror, an accessories tray for your dresser or new window treatments.
And if the budget is tight, why not wallpaper just one wall?
There is no reason why you cannot wallpaper an accent wall and nothing more.
Tip: Always introduce a pattern, texture or both, if possible, into your room if it seems flat. Photography by Laure Joliet Erinn Valencich, Erinn V Design Group: Paint an accent wall opposite the bed with some bold 10-inch-tall horizontal stripes.
Bring in a new color on the wall, and then on the bed with a few throw pillows.
