Bored with your room’s current aesthetic, or are you simply looking for something productive to do? Now that school is out, take this as an opportunity to give your room a makeover. You do not need a lot of money to do it; one or two minor changes can make a huge difference. Here are some ideas:
Since you are stuck inside indefinitely, bring spring and summer into your room. Give your room a fresh new look by painting your walls a bright color. This year, colors you often find in nature are on-trend. Consider a wash of burnt orange like the color of the sun setting for your entire room or a deep green on an accent wall. If pink is more your style, a millennial is out but the more muted blush will continue to be popular.
If you want to use a wallpaper, flower patterns will be fashionable. Look for small flowers that will your room look like it is located in a sleepy small town in rural England.
Hang Art on the Walls
If you are satisfied with the paint currently on your wall, then breathe new life into your room by decorating it with one or more art pieces. A print from an artist you like will make the space look more interesting or a poster of your favorite movie will reflect your personality. Better yet, use multiple photographs, paintings, or even vinyl records to create a gallery wall. Use matching frames for a more cohesive look.
Bring in Plants
Over the years, indoor plants have become very popular among young people. There are so many benefits to having indoor plants. They make the room feel more tranquil and keeps the air fresh, for instance. Even if you do not think you have a green thumb, there are indoor plants that are relatively easy to keep alive. For those who do not get enough sun shining into their rooms, there are plants that can survive in low-light conditions.
Add a Canopy
Want to sleep like royalty? Hang a romantic canopy over your bed. You do not need to buy a new bed frame for this; you can make a canopy on your own with a light fabric or lace and some hooks you can attach onto your ceiling. You can also hang fairy lights to set the mood. A bed canopy is equally luxurious and bohemian.
If you do not have the budget nor the materials for a makeover, decluttering can give your room a fresh look. Spring is all about thorough cleaning anyway so, now that you have so much free time at home, sort through your belongings. Your winter wear should all go back to storage to make room for all the light floral dresses you will wear in the coming warmer months.
Pick out items that you no longer need nor like and donate them to a charity shop or give them away to family members and friends. Your room will feel brand new once you have gotten rid of the clutter.
These room makeover projects are very easy and can be achieved by one person within a weekend. All these decorating tips can also be affordable if you buy the raw materials and arrange things on your own instead of choosing whatever is available at your favorite home accessories store.
