14 Easy Bedroom Makeover Ideas That Will Make Your Space Look Brand New

If you want to retreat to a relaxing space at the end of the day (and who doesn’t?), you don’t have to invest thousands of dollars in a top-to-bottom bedroom makeover. All of these ideas are simple enough to pull off in a day or two and will make a dramatic difference in your space.

Swap in a rolling cart

A bar cart makes a great nightstand. Keep a lamp and alarm clock up top, a carafe and glasses on the middle shelf, and extra linens and a catchall basket underneath, so everything you could ever need is in reach.

Hang art behind decor

You’ll be shocked by how different your gold table lamp and dresser look when a huge modern painting is hung behind it. Suddenly you’ve got a vignette instead of simply a plain surface.

Mix in some pattern

For big impact in any space, add patterned textiles. Stripes, dots, and plaid all count. If mixing patterns, be sure to balance a tight print (like a gingham) with a larger print.

Rearrange your furniture

Who says your bed can’t go in front of your window or your dresser can’t double as a nightstand? Throw out the old rules and find an arrangement that works for you. The best part? It’s totally free!

Add pops of color

Love your neutral room but want to jazz it up a bit? Throw on a colorful blanket under your duvet, add a printed pillow, or even paint a bold accent wall like the dark teal stripe.

Re-do your walls

Create a gallery wall to bring some personality to your space. Mix and match your favorite paintings, photography, sayings, and wall décor for a look that’s uniquely yours.

Buy new bedding

Consider covering your comforter with a new duvet. New bedding can create a whole new look, taking your room from graphic to girly, modern to classic, primary to pastel and more.

Add new hardware

Replace old drawer handles and pulls with decorative ones. This low-effort trick adds personality and style to nondescript or inexpensive furniture.

Hook up a headboard

Make even the simplest bed look lush and sleek with a wall-mounted headboard. You can even create a fun painted-on version using a wall stencil headboard.

Dress up the dresser

Adding a statement-making display on top of your storage will draw the eye away from overflowing drawers. Framed family photos will do the trick.

Clear the clutter

Rid the bedroom of anything that isn’t conducive to relaxation or romance. This includes the TV since research shows having one in the boudoir hinders sleep. At the very least, hide any stress-inducing clutter in a stylish container.

Create a reading corner

All it takes is a cozy chair, a standing lamp, and a new book to make the corner of your bedroom feel like a brand new space.

Add interesting trim

The simple addition of rickrack, ribbon, or trim borders on bed skirts, pillowcases, or shams can yield glowing results.

Lay down a rug

Adding a properly-sized area rug makes a room look bigger and more pulled together, even on top of carpeting. Be sure to choose one that’s large enough to tuck under the bed and at least one other piece of furniture.
