Redecorate bedroom- want new everything

23
Posted 28th Nov
Hi guys im wanting to do my whole room up. Want it simple but nice. Thinking of white, grey, black and rose goldish tones. Ive bought the huge dulux matte paint in brilliant white for my room and also purchased wallpaper for one wall. My ceiling is really high up and ive sort of got this fireplace (which i want to get rid off but dont know how?), any suggestions on what/where to buy things. I want good quality but also dont want to spend too much.

Since people don’t understand the term ‘everything new’ i mean good quality blinds, carpet, bed covers, duvet.. must i go on?

DIY shops.....
If it’s furniture and accessories you are looking to get them have a look in Ikea.
Are you female by any chance?
Depends what room, if it’s furniture or accessories you are after.
What are you actually wanting suggestions for in this thread, do you want a list of the DIY bits that you’ll need to paint and decorate the room with?
Lol. So what is the question ?

..this is the sort of complacency in an OP that just makes me weep, they want everything but don't state "anything" that makes much sense.

I'm out.
Try Wilkinson, the Range and Ikea
I think you shouldn't touch the fireplace. Some original features such as a fireplace can add value to your property.

Thatd be helpful. First time ever doing this
Ebay is your friend. Look for local stuff you can pick up in your car at half the price or delivered.

Oh & paint the door frames & skirting boards last. Get some food quality decorators tape to ensure no paint gets on your walls & carpet etc.
You should try TJ Hughes, they have some really nice decor!

With your lack of apparent nous its debatable that you are employable in any competent position "love"

You fail to state room size, budget, age of house, (of which it may mean decor either fits or stands out like a sore thumb.
Nor your budget, (one mans wilko may be another mans John Lewis).
You fail to state anything about the fireplace as to whether it is a moulded concrete monstrosity, usable, used for ventilation or needs blocking in with ventilation for the chimney.

You fail to state whether you own / rent in which case tackling the fireplace may need to be agreed with your landlord.
You fail to state whether its a flat & therefore whether consideration as to the flue of the chimney plays any part in the rest of the building or whether simply unused & ok to stuff a draught inhibiting chimney balloon is applicable.

The walls, are they modern plasterboard on battens, or old property horsehair plaster,
Flooring, state of. carpets, stay / go.
Wood to be rejuvenated gaps filled, boards replaced or simply carpet over preexisting.

All this affects the budget (missing) anticipated time frame & degree of ability, ...ability you also failed to state until later on in the thread, as a first timer, are you doing this on your own or with assistance & borrowing kit?
High ceilings & your statement of "want to do the whole room up" doesn't actually state whether you mean / meant tackling lighting & possible plumbing / updating of either (such as new radiator, or multiples thereof) ..high ceilings may also mean that a room is large based on design warehouse / georgian etc or subdivided modern mix of partitioned original room.

When you write on here "asking" please give context & detail or else you are essentially wasting peoples time who then have to second guess you or ask you for details that should have been posted originally.

I have both worked on, & purchased numerous properties & renovated them to a high standard over the years, removed, fireplaces, fitted woodburners & recognise the hidden work & additional cost potential when you do a room or house up, thanks for the suggestion of getting a job. "love"

Im not even going bother to read all of this, you’re on here arguing with a teenager . If i said i was thinking of getting rid of the fireplace why on earth would i be renting? If you had time to type all of this out, I’m sure you have enough time to give some advice with your ‘expertise’ instead of this useless garbage. There was just no need. I was literally just asking for suggestions because I thought i should change things up and could get some advice on what to do/where to start. Im sure if I was to see you in my everyday job and you didn’t have much knowledge in my field, I wouldn’t scold you for it but go off.
My point has just been reinforced, by the vagueness of your original inept post whereby you state you have a "sort of fireplace that I (you) want to get rid of but don't know how"



Sounds like you'd be better asking mummy & daddy / whoever, what you are *allowed* to do in your (their) room before you send them crackers.
Hint: be clearer as to your intentions when you do talk to them, more so than you are on here

well i clarified and they responded in a mature manner unlike you. Talking about how i should ask mummy and daddy when maybe you should go back to them and tell ‘em to teach you some manners.

You failed because you were glib.
You failed because you could have explained in a clearer concise manner in the first instance.
Why the heck should folk have to play 20 questions around you? that's what marks you down as "a child"

I explained with a degree of both knowledge & concern & you play the petulant child card.

Doubtless if you churned out such unclear pap in form of work for a teacher to look over & grade you'd be told that your work was unclear & ..but with a tad more tact based on them wanting to keep their job.
Go ruin your room & learn something from it.

You like to talk so much to someone who’s probably less than half your age. Your own kids will definitely be on the receiving end of the kind of stupidity you’re portraying because what goes around comes around. I’m just here laughing at you . I wrote the initial situation i had in a bit of a rush so couldn’t really write everything i needed to. But surely you wouldn’t understand that since you’re jobless and only come on here to talk rubbish. Have a good day .
