DIY For Renters: Bedroom Edition

Cozy White The Colony 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 make it look exceptional without paying a fortune? Well, we have some good news for you! There are several do-it-yourself projects that you can do to renovate your bedroom without spending much money. This blog post will consider some of our favorite DIY projects for renters who want to give their bedroom a fresh look.

Add a Canopy to Your Bed

An easy and uncomplicated 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 make your own with some fabric and a few dowels.

Refresh Your Bedding

Another terrific way to spruce up your bedroom is by adding new bedding. This could mean getting 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 buying something to know it will fit right.

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 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 want to make a massive impact on your bedroom, think about 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 purchase prints that you like or frame some of your own pictures. Your Colony property manager won’t appreciate additional holes in the walls, so avoid 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!
