Rearrange the furniture
Offset the coffee table and rearrange the armchair and comfy sofa set in your bedroom. If you had less furniture in the room, then try bringing in that relaxing diwan from the lounge into your bedroom for a change. Throw that rule book out the window and rethink your place with creative imagination.
Just placing a wooden table and two chairs near your bedroom window can make all the difference in the world. You can even create a reading nook inside your bedroom by stacking some of your favourite reads on your coffee table.
Hang family photos
We all love to revisit old photos and cherish fond memories. However, looking at your family photos is not there to just bring back nostalgia. You can transform your bedroom without spending a penny by hanging family photos. Create a family tree or using a string draw a heart shape on the wall and with the help of some glue tack, stick them to the wall in a decorative manner. Place a spotlight on the photos. This is a perfect way to give your bedroom wall a new look.
Paint an accent wall
Your bedroom revamping project needs to be creative and not expensive. If you have always wanted to doodle on your bare wall, then involve your kids and make interesting sketches and pictures on your wall. Everyone has spare paint in their tool cupboard. Take that out and paint an accent wall and breathe some life into your interior décor.
Make your own DIY rug
Don’t buy an expensive carpet or rug from the local store to accentuate your bedroom. Using leftover scraps of fabric, hand weave a DIY rug that looks stunning. You can make use of your child’s hula hoop and create an interesting pattern with the colours you like and that go well with your room’s décor. Take a look at our guide on how to make your own DIY rug.
Stitch and sew
If you have a knack for sewing or embroidery, then get hold of thread and needle and start making embroidered frames, covers for your cushion and pillows, decorative wall hanging and even net drapes for your bed. You can even revamp tired-looking upholstery with some old fabric stitched into something new and worthwhile.
A shelf on the wall
Who doesn’t like to keep things organised in the bedroom? How about having a DIY bookshelf out of leftover scrap wood from your recent project. Use wooden tiles and place them with angles. Use the shelf for various purposes such as displaying different varieties of cacti and succulents or decorative curios and mementos that you collected from your recent travel.
Amp the lighting
It is always a good idea to create a spotlight over your art hanging. Your dark and dull bedroom can be instantly illuminated using pendant or sconce lights over your bed. If you have curios placed on the console table. Highlight it by using candlesticks that reflect light on the mementos, making the console an impressive vignette in your bedroom. It is just wonderful how lights can have the right effect in your room.
Swap the cushions
A simple and effective way to give your bedroom a new lease of life is to swap the cushions. Get the cushions you have bed replaced with the ones you have in the drawing room or lounge. Change cushions from room to room, they instantly become fresh in a new environment. Switch things up to welcome a small and refreshing change in your bedroom décor.
Make decorative items out of waste
It is just amazing how you can repurpose old furniture into something new. For instance, changing the old dresser into a bathroom vanity cabinet can transform your bathroom’s look and feel. Similarly, you can repurpose old carpet and make something useful out of it. Even plastic bags that you throw away can be recycled into beautiful decorative flowers. If you have a garden, then make a terrarium out of it or use dried twigs, leaves and flowers to make Japanese Ikebana arrangements.
Bring nature inside
Adding some greenery to your bedroom can do wonders. Staying close to nature has a calm and soothing effect on the mind and soul. Succulents, crotons and varieties of cactus and aloe vera can be good decorative plants and they can also help remove harmful pollutants from the air, thus providing a supply of fresh air in the bedroom.
