Designing the room where you spend so much of your time — reading, sleeping, watching television, snuggling your pets and loved ones — can be quite a challenge. Sometimes it’s hard to even know where to start!
Some interior design experiments inevitably yield disastrous and aesthetically unappealing results. You can spend hundreds of dollars on decor, and things still might not look quite right right. But don’t worry, guidance is here! We’ve collected five great “on trend” DIY ideas to spruce up your bedroom. And best of all, these DIY ideas won’t take a huge toll on your wallet.
1. Gold is in!
The color gold is making a comeback this year. It is visually appealing and ensures a “wow factor” in any room. But gold is also versatile enough to pair with any background paint color or furniture. The trend nowadays is to incorporate something gold colored in a room, no matter what it is. An example would be a gold vase to light up a dull-looking bedroom. If you do not want some over-the-top gold accessory in the bedroom, make subtle changes, such as replacing door knobs or closet handles with gold.
2. Minerals, anyone?
Minerals such as sand, ceramic, stone, marble and other natural elements are frequenting trendy homes today. These minerals are made into serving canisters, vases, bowls and even wall art. They are very unique pieces worth displaying in a room. It’s also quite refreshing to bring nature into the comfort of your own bedroom.
3. Wallpaper is love
Wallpaper used to be limited to beige colors and other plain and drab designs. But now, they seem to be getting better and prettier. Say hello to rich and vibrant-colored ones that are guaranteed to liven up a room in an instant, particularly the bedroom. If you do not want to do the whole room, you can always limit it to one part of the wall and just make it an accent wall instead. There are also wall decals available that are just as lovely, which you can stick up on the walls, if you are not that adventurous.
4. Pretty pastels
Pastels, like muted pinks, greys and blues, are great for bathroom walls. They have a relaxing and calming effect that’s perfect when you’re reading, trying to catch some Z’s or soaking in the master bedroom’s adjacent tub. Refrain from using busy colors in the bedroom, as they can prevent you from relaxing and winding down after a stressful day.
5. Mix & match
The mixing of different patterns, textures and styles are great if you want to create a strong impact in a room. As long as you know how to do it right, everything will fall into place. Take small steps like mixing metallics with wood first. Next, you can try playing with fabrics like putting florals and geometric designs together. These would be great for pillows or quilts as it enhances the room by making it more feminine and classy at the same time.
These five easy DIY ideas are just a few of the hundred things you can do to decorate your room. You do not have to be an artist to come up with something creative for the bedroom! There is a limitless supply of great furniture, pretty fabrics, ingenious wall art, paints and other odd knick-knacks to create a spot-on bedroom look.
