DIY For Renters: Bedroom Edition

Cozy White Parkville Bedroom with a Bed CanopyAre you bored of your bedroom looking the same every day? Does it feel like there’s nothing you can do to adjust the way it looks without investing loads of money? Well, we have some good news for you! There are many do-it-yourself projects that you can do to renovate your bedroom without paying much money. This blog post will talk about a few of our favorite DIY projects for renters who want to give their bedrooms a fresh look.

Add a Canopy to Your Bed

A fast and less complicated method 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 create your own with some fabric and a few dowels.

Refresh Your Bedding

One more excellent approach to spruce up your bedroom is by getting new bedding. This could mean purchasing new sheets, pillowcases, blankets, or a new comforter set. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money, you can also hunt for bedding on sale at your local store or online. Just remember to measure your bed before purchasing to know it will fit properly.

Use Vintage Luggage for Storage

If you own old suitcases or trunks collecting dust in your attic, put them to good use by using them as bedroom storage. You can store anything from extra blankets and pillows to out-of-season clothes in these types of luggage. What is more, they provide a touch of character to your space.

Temporary Wallpaper

If you’re looking to make a huge impact on your bedroom, think about putting in temporary wallpaper. This is an easy and relatively low-cost way to change your space’s look completely. You can find temporary wallpaper at most home goods stores or online.

Get Artsy

Consider incorporating some new artwork or photos on the walls if you want to give a bit of personality to your bedroom. You can either acquire prints that you want or frame some of your own pictures. Utilize adhesive wall hangers instead of utilizing a hammer and nails to avoid wall damage. Your Parkville property manager definitely won’t like more holes in the walls.

Refinish Your Furniture

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

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