DIY For Renters: Bedroom Edition

Cozy White Forest Hills Bedroom with a Bed CanopyAre you sick of seeing your bedroom looking the same every day? Does it feel like there’s nothing you can do to transform it into something different without spending a lot of money? Well, we have some good news for you! There are numerous do-it-yourself projects that you can adopt to renovate your bedroom without wasting a lot of money. This blog post will go over some of our favorite DIY projects for renters who want to give their bedrooms a fresh look.

Add a Canopy to Your Bed

A quick and simple method to add a touch of glamour to your bedroom is to add a canopy to your bed. Many home goods stores sell ready-made canopies, but you may also create your own with some fabric and a few dowels.

Refresh Your Bedding

Another fantastic method to spruce up your bedroom is by adding new bedding. This could mean buying new sheets, pillowcases, blankets, or a new comforter set. If you’re not looking to spend too much money, you can also look for bedding on sale at your local store or online. Just be sure to measure your bed before buying anything to know it will fit properly.

Use Vintage Luggage for Storage

If you find old suitcases or trunks collecting dust in your attic, put them to good use by repurposing them as bedroom storage. You can store anything from extra blankets and pillows to out-of-season clothes in these kinds of luggage. Furthermore, they give a touch of character to your space.

Temporary Wallpaper

If you’re seeking to create a significant impact on your bedroom, consider utilizing temporary wallpaper. This is a less complicated and reasonably cheap approach to changing your space’s look completely. You can locate temporary wallpaper at several home goods stores or online.

Get Artsy

If you’re looking to add a touch of personality to your bedroom, consider placing some fresh artwork or photos on the walls. You can either buy prints that you prefer or frame some of your own pictures. Use adhesive wall hangers instead of using a hammer and nails to avoid causing damage to the walls, as your Forest Hills property manager definitely won’t like additional holes in the walls.

Refinish Your Furniture

If you’ve got any old furniture that appears to be a bit shabby, attempt at refinishing it yourself. This is a terrific method to give your bedroom a new look without breaking the bank. You can either paint or stain your furniture, depending on the look you’re going for. Otherwise, get creative and repurpose old furniture for new uses, such as changing an old dresser into an entry table.

These are just a few tips to start renovating your bedroom on a budget. Bear in mind that even tiny changes can have a major difference in the overall look and feel of the room!
