DIY For Renters: Bedroom Edition

Cozy White Newark Bedroom with a Bed CanopyAre you frustrated and tired of your bedroom looking the same every day? Does it feel like there’s nothing you can do to make it look different without you having to spend a lot of money? Well, we have some good news for you! There are so many do-it-yourself projects that you can engage in to renovate your bedroom without spending so much money. This blog post will expound on some of our favorite DIY projects for renters who want to give their bedroom a fresh new look.

Add a Canopy to Your Bed

A very simple and effortless way to add a touch of glamour to your bedroom is to add a canopy to your bed. You can invest in a ready-made canopy you can easily find at most home goods stores or make your own unique style with some fabric and a few dowels.

Refresh Your Bedding

Another hassle-free and splendid way to spruce up your bedroom is just by adding new bedding. This could mean obtaining new sheets, pillowcases, blankets, or a new comforter set. If you’re not keen to spend too much money, you can also certainly look for bedding on sale at your local store or online. Just be sure to measure your bed before buying anything to be sure it will fit properly.

Use Vintage Luggage for Storage

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

Temporary Wallpaper

If you’re earnestly trying to make a big impact on your bedroom, just consider using temporary wallpaper. This is indeed an easy and relatively cost-efficient way to change your space’s look completely. You can look for temporary wallpaper at most home goods stores or online.

Get Artsy

If you like to add a bit of personality to your bedroom, carefully see about hanging some fresh new artwork or photos on the walls. You can either buy prints that you like or just frame some of your own pictures. Your Newark property manager certainly won’t appreciate the extra added holes in the walls, so avoid damage by using adhesive wall hangers instead of choosing to use a hammer and nails.

Refinish Your Furniture

If you can find any old furniture that looks a bit worn, take into consideration refinishing it yourself. This is a great way to give your bedroom a new look without you spending too much money. You can easily either paint or stain your furniture, depending on the look you’re going for. Or, get creative and repurpose old furniture for new uses, such as turning an old dresser into an entry table.

These are merely a few simple ideas to help you start off renovating your bedroom on a budget. Bear in mind, even very small changes can easily make a huge difference in the total look and feel of the room!
