Master Bedroom Reno Recap | Charmer in Alexandra

Our master bedroom has the most windows in the house and is the largest of the three bedrooms, this room deserved design that made a statement and was retreat from the rest of the house. Our reno recap shows how we did just that!

Tips for a Bedroom Renovation

  1. Wallpaper is a great cover up! Instead of plastering our old fireplace perfectly, we used the wallpaper to cover up the imperfections while making a big design impact to the room. The wallpaper saved us time and was a simple DIY task.

  2. Recreate old elements. New skirting boards can cost a small fortune from suppliers but you can save yourself money. With MDF, some planning and router, you can DIY skirtings to match your existing skirting boards for a fraction of the price.

  3. Find second-hand treasures. Our bedroom is filled with antique finds that have saved us plenty of time and money. We found a freestanding wardrobe for $125, far more cost effective than a built in wardrobe. Our lounger was $150 and fits perfectly in our window bay to emphasis the gorgeous windows and drapes. Not everything needs to be new, it just need to be given a new lease on life!
