  • Another way to add greens to the room is by framing compositions of pressed leaves and flowers.


  • Change up the lighting in the room. Opt for fairy lights to soften up the space or add lampshades for a more cosy and intimate feel. This is a relatively accessible DIY room décor project.

  • Install small open shelves. You can use these to display your indoor plants, books or other collectables to add texture and colour to the space.


  • Another DIY bedroom wall décor plan is to create geometric shapes using tape to fashion an accent wall.


  • String lights photo walls are a popular twist on gallery walls! It is an easy and budget-friendly DIY bedroom décor.


  • Use fake flowers to create a flower wall. It will create visual interest and liven up the room.

3. DIY bedroom makeover ideas

As our personal styles change and evolve, it is natural to want to revamp your living space to reflect it. Following are some budget-friendly and easy to implement DIY bedroom makeover ideas to change up your space.


  • A fun way to add interest to any room is to play with texture. One easy way to add texture is through the bedding. Use old clothes such as t-shirts, dupattas, etc., to make new pillow covers or quilts! Or you can add another visual element by embroidering monograms to your linens.


  • Use contact paper to change the look of your furniture and other surfaces. An even easier way to do it is using stencils to paint designs that match your aesthetic.


  • Headboards can be expensive and difficult to install. A good alternative is to make wall hangings that go right above your bed. You can opt for DIY macrame art, origami pieces, etc. and hang them using tree branches.


  • Change up your mirror frame. Opt for distressed wood frames for a rustic look, use a rope to fashion a frame for a nautical look, or paint on some flora for a more boho style. The possibilities are endless!


  • Of DIY bedroom ideas, another is to section off the different areas in your room. Adding curtains or a canopy around the bed can make the space feel cosy and change the space's vibe.

  • Make the art for a gallery wall yourself. Turn it into an activity you can do with your loved ones. It doesn't have to be complicated. Simple patterns using lines, polka dots, geometrical shapes work just as well.


  • Spray paint the doorknobs and door handles to add a pop of colour or a metallic hint to the room.


  • Make candles out of old crockery. Simply melt some wax and pour it into old teacups or mugs. Use them as displays in any room of your choice.


  • Use recycled glass bottles or mason jars for your plants or as candle holders. You can even hang these up instead of using commonplace mobiles.

DIY Tips for small bedroom

Tighter spaces are notoriously difficult to design and decorate. Going even a smidge overboard can make the room feel cluttered and cramped. Here are some DIY small bedroom décor and design tips to optimise the functionality of the room without compromising on the styling.

  • Go big, go bold! Choose a statement furniture piece as the focal point of your room, for example, a bed or a shelf. Depending on the piece you choose, it could be the sculptural element in the room.


  • One great DIY small bedroom décor tip is to use accessories you already have as décor. Hang your hats on the wall, display your funky jewellery, exhibit your vast collection of books, maybe even colour-code them! This is an excellent way to let your personality shine through your space.


  • Liven up your storage bins by covering them with a colourful cloth or with a coat or two of spray paint.


  • Making enough room for storage is always a challenge in small bedrooms. Taking advantage of the vertical space in your room is an excellent move in this case. Add open shelves to walls as high as possible. This creates much-needed surfaces and adds visual interest because it encourages the eye to move all around the room.
  • Add mirrors in the room. Mirrors provide the illusion of the space being bigger than it is. The trick to getting it right is to position the mirror opposite or adjacent to the source of natural light in the room. This will allow the light to bounce across the room, making it feel brighter and less cramped.
