DIY For Renters: Bedroom Edition

Cozy White Dane County Bedroom with a Bed CanopyAre you tired of your bedroom looking the same every day? Does it sadly feel like there’s nothing you can do to make it look effectively different without you spending too much? Well, we have some good news for you! There is a whole slew of do-it-yourself projects that you can undertake to renovate your bedroom without spending a lot of money. This blog post will discuss some of our favorite DIY projects for renters who want to give their bedroom a new, fresh look.

Add a Canopy to Your Bed

A simple and worry-free way to add a touch of glamour to your bedroom is to add a canopy to your bed. You can obtain a ready-made canopy at common home goods stores or design your own with some fabric and a few dowels.

Refresh Your Bedding

One other splendid way to spruce up your bedroom is by adding in new bedding. This could simply mean purchasing new sheets, pillowcases, blankets, or a new comforter set. If you’re not eager to spend too much money, you can also carefully search for bedding on sale at your local store or online. Just see to it to measure your bed before settling on anything to know it will fit correctly.

Use Vintage Luggage for Storage

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

Temporary Wallpaper

If you’re excited and looking to create a huge impact on your bedroom, take into account using temporary wallpaper. This is certainly an easy and relatively cost-effective way to change your space’s look completely. You can find temporary wallpaper at most home goods stores or online.

Get Artsy

If you desire to add a bit of personality to your bedroom, seriously consider putting up some new artwork or photos on the walls. You can very easily either buy prints that you like or frame some of your own pictures. Your Dane County property manager certainly won’t like the extra holes in the walls, so effectively prevent damage by using adhesive wall hangers rather than utilizing a hammer and nails.

Refinish Your Furniture

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

These are just a few proven ideas to kick off renovating your bedroom on a budget. Always remember, even really small changes can make a huge difference in the whole look and feel of the room!
