Cozy White Ransom Canyon Bedroom with a Bed CanopyAre you tired of your bedroom looking the same every day? Does it feel like there’s absolutely nothing you can do to make it look different without you having to spend a fortune? Well, we have some good news for you! There are a whole lot of do-it-yourself projects that you can easily execute to renovate your bedroom without you spending so much money. This blog post will speak about some of our favorite DIY projects for renters who want to give their bedroom a current, fresh look.

Add a Canopy to Your Bed

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

Refresh Your Bedding

Another terrific way to spruce up your bedroom is by putting in new bedding. This could mean procuring new sheets, pillowcases, blankets, or a new comforter set. If you’re not too excited to spend so much money, you can also search for bedding on sale at your local store or online. Just ensure to measure your bed before you try to buy anything to know it will fit right.

Use Vintage Luggage for Storage

Do you have any old suitcases or trunks collecting dust in your attic? Put them to good use by using them as bedroom storage. You can surely store anything from extra blankets and pillows to out-of-season clothes in these pieces of luggage. On top of that, they add an attractive touch of character to your space.

Temporary Wallpaper

If you’re seeking how to make a big impact on your bedroom, seriously consider using temporary wallpaper. This is a very easy and relatively cheap or inexpensive way to change your space’s look completely. You can search for temporary wallpaper at most home goods stores or online.

Get Artsy

If you like to add a bit of personality to your bedroom, take into consideration hanging some new artwork or photos on the walls. You can either procure prints that you want or frame some of your own pictures. Your Ransom Canyon property manager possibly won’t like the extra holes in the walls, so avoid damage by choosing to use adhesive wall hangers instead of using a hammer and nails.

Refinish Your Furniture

If you have in your possession any old furniture that looks a bit worn, take into account refinishing it yourself. This is a terrific way to give your bedroom a new look without having to spend so much money. You can choose to either paint or stain your furniture, depending on the look you’re going for. Or, definitely get creative and repurpose old furniture for new uses, like making an old dresser into an entry table.

These are just several ideas to help you begin renovating your bedroom on a budget. Take note, even small, seemingly insignificant changes can make a big difference in the entire look and feel of the room!
