Decorating your bedroom is an exciting time when you’ve moved into a new place. You’ve got to pick out a new colour scheme, research your favourite interior design ideas on Pinterest and turn them into a reality. Unfortunately, the expenses can start to add up by the time you’ve picked out everything you want. DIY can be the perfect solution to designing exactly what you’ve been looking for but spending half the amount. Stay on budget with these handy DIY tips for your bedroom:
Corner shelves are an innovative solution for those trying to save as much space as possible. All you need are some bits of wood cut to size in a triangle shape, so they can be easily slotted into the corner of your room. They don’t need to be huge, just enough to fit some books, alarm clock and any other objects that you can’t fit on your bedside table.
Looking for a hack to store your clothes when you’ve run out of space in your wardrobe? Underbed drawers are the perfect answer. Creating these can really be as simple as going down to your local charity shop and scouting out an old chest of drawers, then using the drawers as storage underneath your bed.
Putting together a picture clothesline is a wonderful way to decorate your room. This involves getting a long piece of string and some mini paperclips or pegs. Have your printed photographs ready to attach to clothesline. Then, mount it on your wall by drilling some nails into the wall and hanging the string over it, from one end of the wall to the other.
Many people find their room gets cluttered because of lack of space to put things. There’s always that comfy wicker furniture you put in for design purposes that end up being covered in clothes. To save your furniture from becoming a clothes horse, make a hook for the back of your door. Simply get a solid plank of wood and some hooks to hammer in. That way you can encourage more organisation in your room.
Creative Jewellery Displays
If you’ve got a lot of jewellery but don’t always have the space to store it, then get creative and make a display. You can use your imagination when it comes to this, but popular bases are pieces of wood, metal wiring fashioned into a shape or corkboards. Then begin to add your jewellery to the structure, from earrings to necklaces. Not only is this a handy solution when it comes to storing your jewellery, but it also looks like a piece of art!
It’s not really a DIY, more like an organisation hack. A ladder repurposed as a shoe rack is an amazing way to store your shoes. Not only does it look great, but it’s also a practical solution. You can spray paint it to add a pop of colour coordination to your room.
Which Will You Try?
There are a number of ways you can create a beautiful room just by using some DIY skills. It helps you stay more organised, as well as saving you a lot of money. So, whether you’re looking to repurpose some old furniture or create something completely from scratch, there are plenty of solutions to help you design your dream room on a budget.
