When you’re renovating, redecorating or simply sprucing up your home, it can get really overwhelming to take on too much at once. So let’s pare it down and fully focus on one room — the bedroom.Buying a new home is a great choice for homeowners who need to make a change, but for some, it’s just as easy to simply renovate. Small or large, renovation projects can add functionality, style, and a sense of pride to your home which can be protected by a home warranty. Whether you’re knocking down walls, gutting your kitchen, or just throwing on a few coats of paint, there’s inspiration to be found among completed projects. Check out our gallery of inspiring before and after home renovation projects.
Here are 50 plus DIY project ideas to get you started on the journey to a beautiful sanctuary, from super quick and easy to worth-the-effort challenges:
1 . Buy new bedding.
If you don’t already have one, consider a duvet or comforter. New bedding can create a whole new look, taking your room from graphic to girly, modern to classic, primary to pastel and more.
2 .Add new hardware.
Replace old drawer handles and pulls with decorative ones. This low-effort trick adds personality and style to nondescript or inexpensive furniture. Want proof: The rings on this nightstand perfectly match the nautical theme.
3 .Hook up a headboard.
Make even the simplest bed look lush and sleek with a wall-mounted headboard. You can even create a fun painted-on version using a wall stencil headboard.
4.Clear the clutter.
Rid the bedroom of anything that isn’t conducive to relaxation or romance. This includes the TV, since research shows having one in the boudoir hinders sleep. At the very least, hide any stress-inducing clutter in a stylish container.
5.Create a reading corner.
All it takes is a cozy chair, a standing lamp and a new book to make the corner of your bedroom feel like a brand new space.
6.Add interesting trim.
The simple addition of rickrack, ribbon or trim borders on bed skirts, pillowcases or shams can yield glowing results. The blue details on this bedding ties in colors from the headboard and creates a cohesive look.
7.Lay down a rug.
Adding a properly-sized area rug makes a room look bigger and more pulled together, even on top of carpeting. One warning: Be sure to choose one that’s large enough to tuck under the bed and at least one other piece of furniture.
8.Dress up your windows.
Add some “wow” to windows with a valance. Complement solid-print curtains with a pattern valance, and vice versa.
9.Bring in a bench.
Nothing elevates a bedroom faster than a bench at the end of the bed. This woven bamboo and seagrass design offers storage, bonus seating and a natural touch to the space
10.Make the room come to life.
Houseplants generate oxygen and remove toxins from the air. You can buy plants on Amazon or head to your local nursery for watering, feeding and maintenance tips. If your thumb is far from green, ask which plants are hardest to kill.
11.Use a statement mirror.
Not only do mirrors reflect light and make rooms feel bigger (a nice touch for small bedrooms), but the stainless grain on this modern design also adds a touch of luxury.
12.Monitor your pillow population.
Pillows can be comfy and cute, but they shouldn’t take up more than half of the bed. Two sets of appropriately sized bed pillows and a lumbar pillow are all you need. Different textures will help liven up your display, too
13.Hang a romantic canopy.
If you want your master suite to be the ultimate serene escape, this flowing canopy is the fastest way to achieve this vibe. It’s one part glamorous and one part bohemian.
14.Add texture on the walls.
These days wallpaper doesn’t have to be the hassle it once was thanks to stick-on designs. Here, you can see what a striking statement blue sea grass wallpaper makes, while also creating a calming space.
15.Don’t match too much.
It’s tempting to buy the “bed in a bag,” but nothing is more mind-numbing and impersonal than having everything in a room match. Rooms with a variety of colors and patterns have the most personality.
16.Incorporate a new accent color.
A formerly navy blue and white bedroom is given a new life when gold touches are added into the mix. Use accessories to achieve this look or paint a small piece of furniture, like the nightstand.
17.Add a statement chandelier.
Even though everything in this traditional room is unquestionably stylish, adding a light fixture draws the eye upwards (making the room feel bigger) and turns an otherwise safe room into a glamorous space.
18.Bring in something vintage.
Changing the finish on an existing piece is a small investment that will pay off big time when it comes to the design in your room. If you don’t want to DIY an existing piece, purchase something new to replace a piece in your room that doesn’t scream “unique.”
19.Add fresh flowers.
You’ll be surprised what some fresh peonies will do on your nightstand. This is especially important if you have a neutral bedroom. Just add colorful blooms on the weekly to keep it lively.
20.Replace a classic item.
Swap out the bedside table for a fresh find, like a trunk or wooden crate. This vintage wicker bar cart boasts two shelves for books, jewelry and trinkets.
21.Give walls a face lift.
Skip the pros and DIY your own plank wall like in this bedroom. Paired with bold linens, the rustic wood feels fresh, not quaint.
22.Hang art behind decor.
You’ll be shocked how different your gold table lamp and dresser look when a huge modern painting is hung behind it. Suddenly you’ve got a vignette instead of simply a plain surface.
23 . Updated Upstairs
What had been an upstairs sitting area became a master bedroom, with an added closet for storage. The ceiling gained character courtesy of wood planks and updated skylights.
24.Open and Airy
To add authentic character, the walls were finished with widely spaced wood battens typical of California cottages built during this era. To make the bedroom feel brighter and airier, the ceiling was vaulted by opening up the attic space above.
25. Light-Filled Den
The former bedroom was converted into a casual den by swapping out an affixed desk for a cushion-topped window seat that has a drawer underneath. The owner upped the cottage quotient with charming built-ins that have clever storage.
The walls were covered over with reclaimed wood and the ceiling painted white. A built-in headboard made of the same material establishes a simple, rustic mood.
After renovation, the master bedroom was clad in pine planks and coated with a primer that lets the grain show through. Beneath the carpeting? Hardwood floors. In place of a headboard, the couple covered the wall behind the bed in oak rescued from a Pittsburgh bank
