Simple changes can make a huge difference to a bedroom and you don't have to spend a fortune to create a new look, you can give your bedroom a fresh and vibrant feel with a few ingenious ideas and a little bit of elbow grease.

Fabric headboards can be overhauled too, all you need is a staple gun and about 2 metres of upholstery fabric, if it is luxury you are after, then choose a fabric that feels velvety to the touch.
