Updates to your bedroom can have a big impact — it's the first thing you see when you wake up in the morning and the last thing you see when you go to bed at night. But what if you want a new feel for your bedroom but don't have a ton of money? Here are a few budget-friendly options.

A flag (or any other fabric wall hanging, like a tapestry or blanket) hung behind your bed is a great way to get a big impact for a little money.

Try painting your nightstand (or a dresser) in a really bold color.

Drape a colorful blanket at the foot of the bed to add a little excitement to your sleeping space.

Create a lovely DIY lamp by tucking fairy lights under a cloche.

Use curtain rods mounted to the ceiling to create a canopy effect without buying a new bed.

Drape a textile or blanket over your headboard for a little extra pattern and texture.

So it's quite possible that this series of frames, spotted in bedroom from Havenly, contains pre-made prints, but you could recreate the look by cutting out and framing a few panels from a piece of wallpaper with a big, graphic print.

If painting your whole room seems like too much of a task, try doing just the bottom half. The contrast between black and white adds just the right amount of pizzazz to this Brooklyn space.
