Being a Goth true and true does not end with dark clothing, weird makeup and ugly black boots. It is a way of life that is reflected in everything you do. And which other place reflects your lifestyle than your bedroom.
The thing is, some Goths think that you need to break a bank to be able to modify your home to reflect your Gothic tastes. Here's some good news. You don't! You could easily set up your bedroom with some Gothic bedroom décor even if you have a budget. Here is how you can go about it.
Get a Painting
We recommend that you opt for something with the right colors, background and possible characters that reflect your Gothic tastes. The good thing is that there are a lot of affordable paintings that you could choose from. You might even try a DIY piece of painting if you have the skills and time. Just make sure that it sets the tone for that Gothic atmosphere and ambiance in your bedroom.
One other thing is to ensure that you have the right colors for your wall. The wall around is like a background to the painting, and both would combine to give your bedroom a great Gothic look. Experiment with dark colors like crimson, purple and dark blue if you don't want to use black.
Use A Candelabra
To get a candelabra that works for you, find a regular candelabra at any shop around you (preferably a thrift shop). You then paint it to suit your tastes (you might want to experiment with other dark colors if black does not work for you).
Once that's done, fit some dark candles to the candelabra (the darker, the better) and decorate them with some jewelry for effect. Any option is to get a set of glass bottles of varying sizes. Paint them to your tastes, then add some dark colors to them too.
Try Old Ornate Frames
Do you have some old ornate frames around? If you don't, get some at a local store. Get dark ornate frames if you can't get the black ones. On the flip side, you might want to experiment with light colors for effect. Get the frames fitted with some paintings, and you are good to go.
Repurpose Your Old Dolls
If you have any old porcelain dolls or Monster High dolls lying around, then now is the time to put them to use. Get them repainted and suited up with the right colors to match your room. Here's another tip. Remove the eyeballs of the dolls for maximum effect! Make sure that you place them at positions around the bedroom where they are always in your line of sight.
