DIY For Renters: Bedroom Edition

Cozy White Bartlett Bedroom with a Bed CanopyAre you unhappy and tired of your bedroom looking the same every day? Does it seem like there’s nothing you can do to make it look rather different without you spending a fortune? Well, we have some good news for you! There are a whole lot of do-it-yourself projects that you can take on to renovate your bedroom without spending so much money. This blog post will discuss some of our favorite DIY projects for renters who want to give their bedroom a fresh contemporary look.

Add a Canopy to Your Bed

A simple and no-fuss way to add a touch of glamour to your bedroom is to add a canopy to your bed. You can get a ready-made canopy at most home goods stores or make your own with some beautiful fabric and a few dowels.

Refresh Your Bedding

Another wonderful way to spruce up your bedroom is by adding fresh, new bedding. This could mean obtaining new sheets, pillowcases, blankets, or a new comforter set. If you’re not too keen to spend so much money, you can also try looking for bedding on sale at your local store or online. Just ensure to measure your bed before settling on buying anything to know it will fit correctly.

Use Vintage Luggage for Storage

If you have any old, unused suitcases or trunks collecting dust in your attic, put them to good use by re-using them as bedroom storage. You can certainly store anything from extra blankets and pillows to out-of-season clothes in these old pieces of luggage. Moreover, they add a unique touch of character to your space.

Temporary Wallpaper

If you’re searching for a way to make a big impact on your bedroom, take into account using temporary wallpaper. This is, indeed, an easy and relatively affordable way to change your space’s look completely. You can find temporary wallpaper at most home goods stores or online.

Get Artsy

If you are eager to add a splash of personality to your bedroom, just try hanging some new artwork or photos on the walls. You can choose to either purchase prints that you like or easily frame some of your own pictures. Your Bartlett property manager probably won’t like all the additional holes in the walls, so easily avoid damage by using adhesive wall hangers instead of choosing to use a hammer and nails.

Refinish Your Furniture

If, in any case, you also have any old furniture that looks a bit worn, think about refinishing it yourself. This is a terrific way to give your bedroom a new look without spending a whole lot of money. You can choose to either paint or stain your furniture, depending on the look you’re going for. Or, get your creative juices flowing and repurpose old furniture for new uses, like effectively turning an old dresser into an entry table.

These are certainly just a few ideas to give you a head start in renovating your bedroom on a budget. Take note, even very small changes can certainly make a huge difference in the overall look and feel of the room!
