Now that everyone is staying home, everyone needs their own space either to do their work or to study. Some of you might be gathering ideas to tackle DIY projects or to do a home improvement project that has been on your to-do list for a long. Here I will be sharing DIY ideas and improvements you can do to your bedroom to alter it to your preference. Be it lighting or flooring or purchasing a piece of furniture to suit your current needs, we got it all covered. 


DIY Wall Decor for Bedroom:

Do your walls look boring? Try creating an accent wall using wallpaper, or by changing your paint color, or by making your own DIY Faux wallpaper like Plank + pillow to create an accent wall. Walls really help in setting the mood of the room. If you are using your bedroom for studies or office work, try something in light tones to set your mood to be ready and get going in the morning for your classes. 


If your bedroom needs a lot of light with privacy, opt for sheer curtains. If your current space doesn't have curtain rods - Try this DIY cheapest curtain rod hack to hang your curtains.

Indoor plants:

Invest in Indoor plants to add more liveliness to your space. Plants bring a lot of positive energy to space. Start with something simple like air plants or succulents and slowly consider fewer maintenance plants like bamboo, snake plants, pothos.

Or you can try to the DIY shelf using popsicle sticks for air plants like the one below. 

Flooring Ideas for Bedroom:

Have carpeted floors that you don't have a budget to change? Try adding an area rug in the high traffic rug or try to layer different textures of rugs like faux sheepskin fur to create the look you prefer. But remember that you have to anchor the rugs in order to avoid bunching and tripping. This Snapguide can help you with anchoring rugs on carpets.

 Furniture & Storage DIY ideas for the bedroom:

Use 4 cube shelves as a nightstand or end table if you are looking for storage options by the bedside from The Every girl

Talk to me about under the bed storage - if you aren't using this space you should consider it. We pretty much use that space to store all our big suitcases full of stuff - it is like our mini storage room. Use Bed risers - like this to add space below your bed. Feeling fancy? Make your own DIY rolling under bed storage box from Curbly or get some under the bed storage bins from here.

If you lacking in space and need a table that doesn't occupy space. Consider a drop leaf table like this which perfect for a quick online class or to attend a meeting. Or make your own version using these brackets for a more affordable version.

Other DIYs you might like:


  1. Bedroom rugs do balance not only your weight but also absorb the sound of your steps. When you move around your bedroom, you will not feel any sound.

  2. The global trend in the labor and education markets is such that a person does not choose a profession and education once and for all. This is only the first choice Therefore, the choice becomes a little easier. But always remember that a basic education - medical or engineering - is difficult or almost impossible to get a second. It is too energy consuming to receive. Therefore, if you are choosing between several specialties, it is better to start with the fundamental.
