A lot of people think that they have to make major changes if they want to improve the look of their bedroom. Fortunately this is not the case and you can easily make changes that don’t require any construction! Here are some ways to make these changes quickly and easily:

update the look of your bedroomPaint
Although this might sound obvious, a new coat of paint can make a dramatic difference with the way your bedroom looks. Try and paint all walls the same color except for the wall that your bed goes against. This will be the accent wall, which the eye will be drawn to as soon as you walk in the room.

Storage
In order to create more storage, buy a cheap bookcase from a local store. Make sure it’s thick and that the width of it is the same as the width of your bed (or smaller). Then, paint it any color that will go with the color that the rest of your room is. Once the bookcase is dry, flip it over so that the thickest side is facing up towards you. Then, put pillows on this and push it up against the bottom of your bed.

You can use this to store things that you use often! It’s cheap, easy to make and a better option than those expensive chests. It’s also beneficial to put shelving on your walls. This will add depth and is generally pretty inexpensive as well. This is a great alternative to large pieces of furniture that take up a lot of space.

Decals
Add some character to your walls by putting vinyl decals on them. These can totally transform your space and will make it look unique without having to do any intricate painting. You can find decals online and apply them yourself within minutes.

Electrical Tape
Do you want stripes on one of your walls? Well, instead of taking several days to paint them, use electrical tape! This comes in tons of different colors and widths, so you can easily apply it to your walls. Just make sure you use straight lines and measure the space ahead of time. This won’t damage your walls, so it’s great for anyone who doesn’t want to make permanent changes.

Lighting
A new fan or light fixture in your bedroom can take the space to the next level. You can even make them on your own if you like being crafty! There are a lot of different DIY projects online that you can find with a little bit of time spent searching.
