DIY For Renters: Bedroom Edition

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

Add a Canopy to Your Bed

A very simple and manageable way to add a touch of glamour to your bedroom is to add a canopy to your bed. You can just purchase a ready-made canopy at most home goods stores or create your own with some fabric and a few dowels.

Refresh Your Bedding

Another wonderful way to spruce up your bedroom is by using new bedding. This could mean purchasing new sheets, pillowcases, blankets, or a new comforter set. If you’re not very happy about spending too much money, you can also search for bedding on sale at your local store or online. Just make certain to measure your bed before settling on buying anything to know it will fit perfectly.

Use Vintage Luggage for Storage

If you have some old suitcases or trunks collecting dust in your attic, put them to good use by utilizing 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. In addition, they add a charming touch of character to your space.

Temporary Wallpaper

If you’re searching for ways to make a big impact on your bedroom, consider utilizing temporary wallpaper. This is a very easy and somewhat inexpensive way to change your space’s look completely. You can find temporary wallpaper at most home goods stores or online.

Get Artsy

If you like to add a clear touch of personality to your bedroom, try hanging some new artwork or photos on the walls. You can decide to either buy prints that you like or simply frame some of your own pictures. Your Williamsburg property manager probably won’t really like those extra holes in the walls, so prevent unnecessary damage by making use of adhesive wall hangers instead of using a hammer and nails.

Refinish Your Furniture

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

These are just a few simple and easy ideas to start you renovating your bedroom on a budget. Always bear in mind, even very small changes can make a huge difference in the entire look and feel of the room!
