If you’ve had the same bedroom layout and design for years, then it’s definitely time to renovate your room. Fortunately, I have come up with 5 bedroom renovation ideas to try now so all you need to focus on is what colour palette you want to work with.
No matter the size of your room or budget I have come up with 5 ideas that cater to everyone. I cover everything from small DIY renovations that you can do to bigger renovations you can complete to transform your bedroom.
Add texture with panelling
Adding panelling to one of your walls will take the décor up a notch by adding some texture to your room. It is also relatively easy to do yourself and won’t require you to repaint the entire wall. You can pick up wood panels from most DIY stores such as B&Q.
Once you’ve purchased the panels you want, all you need to do is measure the space that you want to add them to and cut them down to size. It’s also worth purchasing a spirit level if you don’t already have one to ensure all the panels are even when you stick them on the walls.
You can purchase panels in most colours, but I’d suggest painting them the same colour as your walls so they tie into the décor whilst adding detail and texture to the walls.
Create a gallery wall
Although this is a smaller renovation idea, adding artwork into your décor can transform the ambience of your room by adding character and colour. Creating a gallery wall is a great way to do this as you can purchase multiple pieces of art in different frame sizes and even see what it would look like on your wall.
If you have chosen a neutral themed bedroom, then having a gallery wall is a great way to add a splash colour into your space whilst keeping an all-round neutral theme.
Create a cosy corner
A slightly more expensive bedroom renovation idea is to create a cosy corner so you can unwind in the comfort of your bedroom. Whether you want to unwind through reading or just have a separate space out of the way, a cosy corner is a great way to do this.
If you have space to do so, I’d create a bench underneath your window with comfy cushions and a blanket where you can sit and relax. As well as this, adding a bookshelf by your seating area will separate this from the rest of the room. This is also a great home improvement project to increase value.
If you don’t have the space or resources to create a makeshift seating area underneath your window, then invest in a comfy chair or mini sofa instead. This will still allow you to separate your cosy corner from the rest of your room to create an area you can escape to.
Upgrade your furniture
Upgrading your furniture is one of the easiest ways to renovate your bedroom and express your personality through your bedroom furniture and aesthetic. If you are on a tighter budget, upgrading your furniture doesn’t have to mean purchasing new furniture for your entire bedroom.
For example, if you like certain furniture items in your room, but they don’t go with your new colour theme or you feel they are starting to look outdated, you can easily upcycle them. You can purchase paint for different materials in most DIY stores so you can give your furniture a refresh in the colour you want.
Alternatively, if your furniture has marks and dents that paint won’t cover, you can get sticky back plastic in a range of colours and patterns to use instead.
Install different flooring
When it comes to renovating your bedroom, installing different flooring can transform the way your bedroom looks and feels. Many people opt for carpet in their bedroom, however, over time this starts to look tatty and discoloured due to general wear and tear.
Although regularly deep cleaning your carpet can help to delay this, it isn’t something we all have time to do and it requires most of your furniture to be removed which isn’t always convenient.
With that being said it may be time to update your carpet or throw it out all together and switch to hardwood floors with a rug to add that homely feel. I’d suggest getting a professional to fit whichever type of flooring you decide to go for so you can ensure it’s done properly.
To sum it up
In summary, there are many ways that you can renovate your bedroom but these are my top 5 bedroom renovation ideas to try now. I have carefully crafted this blog to cater for all budget and room sizes.
If you are on a tighter budget, I’d suggest using DIY tools such as panelling to add to your bedroom and give it a refresh. If your budget is slightly bigger, I’d suggest investing in a cosy corner to add to your room and create your own little sanctuary.
