Thinking of transforming your bedroom into this remarkably beautiful, yet functional, cozy space but holding back because the décor pieces you’ve been eyeing are insanely overpriced? If yes, you’ll be glad to know you can transform your bedroom into that space you’ve always wanted without blowing your budget. How? By doing it yourself. Got no idea where to start? Fret not because below is a list of excellent DIY decorations for your room that’ll transform your bedroom from Ok to Wow in an instant.
Paint Your Bedroom Walls
The easiest and most affordable way to give any room, leave alone the bedroom an instant facelift is through a paint job. In that light, a good place to start while on the hunt for DIY decorations for your room is to paint it.
You can choose to paint all the walls or if you are looking for an easy fix, paint one of them. For instance, if your room is too bright currently, paint a dark color on one of the walls to create contrast and at the same time, have an accent wall. The other alternative to painting is using removable wallpaper. Get one you like and once you’re tired of the look switch it with another one for a newer aesthetic.
Bring in a Mirror or Two
Mirrors create the illusion of a bigger room. Therefore, if space is an issue and you at the same time want to revamp your bedroom, then a mirror or two are your best bet. You could place a big mirror directly opposite the window. It’ll not only add visual appeal, but also optical space, and at the same time, add more natural light to your bedroom. If your bed has no headboard, a great way to spice things up is to get one huge mirror, mount it on the wall, so it serves as a headboard.
Photo Frame Heart Collage
As with paint and wallpaper, photo frames not only liven up a room but if placed well, can also turn into an elegant focal point. With that said, if you’ve got a bunch of pictures you love so much you backed them up in your phone, why don’t you print them out, frame them and create a photo frame collage in your bedroom. To make the display even more interesting, you can arrange them in such a way that they form a heart photo wall. By the time you are done, you will not only have given your bedroom a facelift but will also preserve your treasured photos in a way they will never get lost.
Add a Little Life to Your Duvets
The most glamorous bedrooms usually have a superbly decorated bed. You can do a great job with the paint, and all the DIY decorations for your room on this list, but if your bed area looks basic, you’ll feel something’s missing.
Therefore, while on your DIY bedroom décor project, don’t forget to revamp your beddings. For instance, add ruffles to that boring plain white duvet cover or if you’re artistic and love drawing, draw a world map on it.
Create a Reading or Coffee Corner
If you are a book lover and would rather spend your entire day reading down some Sydney Sheldon than watch a movie, then what better way to update your bedroom than to create a reading nook? If you’ve got a seat you rarely use then create this corner will be even easier.
All you need to do is place it on the corner near the window, throw on a throw blanket or pillow, and find a nice footstool. If you do not have an unused seat in your home, then another great alternative is to get a bean bag or a big crochet pouf and place it on the same corner. It’ll not only look cozy and functional but will also add that much-needed aesthetic you needed in your bedroom.
Create a Book or Suitcase Bedside Table
Got no bedside table? No problem. That stack of books from your collage years that has been gathering dust in your library can make a pretty nice, very unique yet functional bedside table. For this, you will first need to create a tabletop of your choice. For instance, take a piece of wood, curve into a circle or whichever shape you find best and paint it. Next, drill a hole into your stack of books, skewer a dowel through the holes, and attach to the tabletop you created earlier using glue!
If you don’t have a stack of books lying around, another great way to create a unique yet statement nightstand is by using a vintage suitcase to create one. This one will not only be aesthetically pleasing but also functional because besides serving as a nightstand, you can always stash some books or beddings in there.
The kitchen might be the heart of the home but the bedroom is your personal space. It’s where you retire to for comfort after a hard day at work, and it’s where you and your spouse spend your most intimate moments. You can make it the haven it should be without breaking your budget using some of the tips we’ve outlined here.
