Cushions are not too expensive, yet they can transform a bedroom. Here we can see how gold cushions are paired with patterned black and white cushions to bring a modern touch to a classic bedroom.

If you already have cushions but they are looking tired or worn, get them recovered. You can shop for cheap fabrics that look beautiful!

2. Install shelves

Add shelves to your walls in the bedroom, creating a space where books, picture frames and other items can be stored neatly away while still on display. This will add a dynamic touch to the vertical space, while allowing to use items you already own for decor purposes.
