DIY For Renters: Bedroom Edition

Cozy White Waterford Bedroom with a Bed CanopyAre you sick of your bedroom looking the same every day? Feeling like you can do nothing to make it seem different without having to spend a fortune? Well, we have some good news for you! There are lots of do-it-yourself projects that you can get on to renovate your bedroom without spending much money. This blog post will be discussing some of our favorite DIY projects for renters who want to give their bedroom a fresh perspective.

Add a Canopy to Your Bed

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

Refresh Your Bedding

Another great way to spruce up your bedroom is by adding new bedding. This may mean purchasing new sheets, pillowcases, blankets, or a new comforter set. If you’re not looking to spend too much money, you can similarly look for bedding on sale at your local store or online. Just be sure to measure your bed before purchasing anything to know it will fit properly.

Use Vintage Luggage for Storage

If you have some 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 pieces of luggage. Plus, they add a touch of character to your space.

Temporary Wallpaper

If you’re looking to make a big impact on your bedroom, consider using temporary wallpaper. This is an easy and relatively 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 would like to add a bit of personality to your bedroom, consider hanging some new artwork or photos on the walls. You can buy prints that you like or frame some of your own pictures. Your Waterford property manager probably won’t like the 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 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 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!
