DIY For Renters: Bedroom Edition

Cozy White Somerville Bedroom with a Bed CanopyDo you get sick of seeing your bedroom looking the same every day? Do you believe that there is nothing you can do to change the way it looks without spending a lot of money? Well, we have some good news for you! There are plenty of do-it-yourself projects that you can take on to renovate your bedroom without spending much money. This blog post will go over some of our favorite DIY projects for renters who want to give their bedroom a fresh look.

Add a Canopy to Your Bed

An inexpensive and easy way to add a touch of glamour to your bedroom is to add a canopy to your bed. Most home goods stores sell ready-made canopy or you can make your own with some fabric and a few dowels.

Refresh Your Bedding

By purchasing new bedding, you may spruce up your bedroom as well. 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 shop 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

On the off chance that you have any old suitcases or trunks collecting dust in your attic, put them to good use by utilizing them as bedroom storage. You can store anything from extra blankets and pillows to out-of-season clothes in these pieces of luggage. Plus, they add a touch of character to your space.

Temporary Wallpaper

Consider using temporary wallpaper if you’re looking to make a big impact on your bedroom. This is a simple 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

If you want to add a bit of personality to your bedroom, consider hanging some new artwork or photos on the walls. You can either purchase prints that you like or frame some of your own pictures. Your Somerville property manager probably won’t appreciate extra holes in the walls, so prevent damage by using adhesive wall hangers rather than using a hammer and nails.

Refinish Your Furniture

If you have any old furniture that looks a bit shabby, 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 ideas to start renovating your bedroom on a budget. Remember, even small changes can make a big difference in the overall look and feel of the room!
