If you don’t have room for a console table to house your decorations, swap this for your workspace or even a dressing table.

If you reside in an apartment chances are you lack wardrobe space. Older apartments and homes often lack the essential modern amenities that are present in today’s newer or refurbished abodes. However, all is not lost. These days there are plenty of external robe solutions that can look just as chic as built-ins. If you’re on a budget a new clothing rack can add style and pizzazz to your room.
If hanging garments in the open focus on keeping pieces that match and that you would wear together on show. This looks trendy, and believe it or not, can help you quickly assemble your outfit each morning. The example above is a good demonstration of this, and works with a simple yet elegant rail, along with a curated selection of items.
If you do have built-in robes, try giving them a de-clutter to improve their efficiency, and increase your bedroom’s effectiveness.
6. New bed linen
New bed sheets and linen can breathe fresh life into your sleeping quarters. Not simply good looking, a set of new sheets can also improve your night’s rest, while boosting your bedroom’s appearance. Go for a monochromatic setup like the one above, or choose something a little out of the ordinary with patterns, motifs and colours. Additionally, throw cushions and rugs add character and style to a space, and are an inexpensive bedroom must-have.
