DIY Cheap Bedroom Makeover Ideas

Creating the most out of a space with a small budget can be tough. So many ideas and mixed thoughts about where to put what often make the results very disappointing. As for bedrooms, decorating one can be harder than any other room as you have to maintain comfort and beauty simultaneously. After all, a bedroom is the comfort zone of the house, isn't it? Here are a few things you might want to consider before getting into renovating an old boring bedroom space:

A Peak in Your Pocket!

Before starting a DIY project, you must make a budget. This will not only prevent overspending and buying unnecessarily but also make sure that your project goes smoothly. Getting midway through a DIY project and running out of money is not only frustrating, but it can bring your already done hard work to nothing, especially for paints, paper mâché, and time-sensitive ventures.

Is A Mind Map Enough?

Planning is the most significant part of anything; however, for DYIing requires a tangible layout. You do not have to go Kelly Wearstler on it. Make a rough sketch on a sheet of paper and mark spots for aligning furniture and decorative pieces, paintings, etc. using fabric or paints to choose the color of the walls. This also helps in limiting the preexisting elements like light switches, fireplaces, windows, etc.


Coordination is very important. If your space's color scheme and lightning do not go together, it will look like a big fail despite all the effort and time you invested in it.

Remember that the bedroom is just another room like the rest of the rooms in your house. There should be a connection in terms of aesthetics in all your space. Walls & doors are meant for separation, not discrimination.

Let’s Go Shopping!

Beginning a DIY décor project means shopping time. This always makes you buy extra stuff that you end up throwing in the attic or overcrowding the space, making it look shabby. Make sure to buy only what you need and make the most out of it. That’s the beauty of DIY; you can use your creativity and come up with great ideas.

Minimalism or Profligate

I know you have heard this a million times, go minimal, go classic. If you ask me, why let anyone else decide what you want to do with your space. If a simple and classic look works well for you, then go for it, but if you think you need to up the aesthetics of your bedroom a notch, play with colors and patterns.
Once you have set the goal and parameters for yourself, it's time to get to work. Use the following ideas for a unique makeover for your bedroom. These DIYs will make your work easy and more fun.

Tips for Giving Your Bedroom A Makeover

1. Geometry and Art

Geometric patterns incorporated with appropriate Color schemes and lighting can make a huge difference. If you are a minimalist, simple geometric patterns will suit you the most.

Tape wall Art is a unique trend that will help you transform your bedroom walls from $10-$15. All you need is some tape, your favorite pigment (you can go crazy with the colors or use monochrome paints), and a brush/roller.

Wallpaper can be expensive and hard to install, as well. To save money and effort, you can buy large-scale peel-and-stick murals. Not only are they far cheaper than wallpapers but also, they are easy to apply.

A bed is the most highlighted part of the bedroom; decorating it can make a big difference. Start with a padded headboard.

8. Mirror and Lightening

Forget about dark corners and dull rooms. Using mirrors of unique styles and sizes not only adds more to the wall décor but also bounces light to create a brighter and more vibrant setting.

Full-sized mirrors, closets, dressers, decorative mirrors, leaning mirrors, and much more. It’s time to explore and experiment.

9. Did Some Say Two in One?

Merging is a great way of utilizing space creatively. If you have a large space that is too big to be a single bedroom but too small to be a two-room, make it a two-in-one. 

If you are an artist, bringing your studio into your bedroom can be a real deal changer for you.

You can even merge dining with your bedroom by inducing a small dining table and chairs. To create separation, just work with rugs and color coordination. This will give off a more elegant vibe than actually placing a room separator.

Try a bookshelf in the bedroom

Include a gorgeous, versatile shelf that can work wonders too as it can serve as a library shelf at times, or it can be used to display ornaments and various collections if you are a collector like me. The shelf would not only provide an opportunity to display books, collections, and whatnots but also act as a separator itself.  

Bonus tip: You can paint and decorate the shelf using various DIY ideas like painting, stencils, lights, etc. 

10. Furnish well

When furnishing, avoid crowding the space with oversized or too much furniture. 

Bedroom Furniture

Remember, 'less is more.' To make a picture-perfect bedroom setting, go for unique furniture like floating tables, dressers, and nightstands. Not only do they look great, but they also save space.
