No-no-no. That decorating with creativity and transforming your room into a cool and cozy place does not have to be too expensive. We promise you. In this post, we have not proposed to take that idea out of your head and teach you that, with a little ingenuity and a desire to do some work, room decoration will not open a black hole in your pocket. Let’s make a deal: check out these ideas to decorate a room without spending a lot and tell us in the comments if we are right or not.
Think of a blank room, not too big, where you have to squeeze the space well. We are going to decorate it little by little, going through different parts. Before filling it with furniture, you have to paint the walls.
Decorated Walls: The First Step To Decorate Your Room
There are a lot of ways to decorate the walls in a different way, avoiding the typical bland white that does not say anything. Although it is true that, in small rooms, white gives a feeling of spaciousness, it can be combined with a little more risky designs in some areas to create a special corner. We propose three ideas: create a small blackboard in a corner with acrylic paint, make an area with geometric figures with colors and masking tape or decorate a wall with black polka dots -the photo shows a children’s room, but it doesn’t have to be So-. All very simple! And if you want to see some more, no stones another post in which you give 8 ideas to paint the walls of a room with several different designs.
How To Decorate A Room: DIY Headboards
We already have the walls decorated, now we have to start thinking about the bed. A headboard always dresses a room a lot, giving the bed the prominence it deserves and contributing to the room decoration of the environment. There are tons of ways to make really cool headboards without spending a lot, even with recycled materials. Depending on how you want it, lighter or more robust, you can use one thing or another. We propose two different ideas: in the image above, a PRECIOUS headboard made with wool in pastel tones; In the video below, a project that we did at Handfie and of which we are super proud, a headboard with wooden slats and a little varnish. Which one do you prefer?
Custom Cushions To Decorate The Bed
We are still in bed, which for something is the most important part of any room. And you need a good bed… nice cushions! We got this cool idea from Brit + Co. Buy some basic white cushions, which you can find in any decoration store for not much money, and personalize them to your liking with some fabric markers. You can make cool shapes or write messages, whatever you want.
Homemade Nightstand: More Ideas For Room Decoration
And, next to the bed … a nightstand, of course. If you dare to work with a little wood, this idea that they have made in The Merry Thought is very very cool. If you notice, the structure of this floating nightstand is very simple. It is only composed of two rectangular pieces of wood, one of them with a slit to put the mobile. Pretty and practical, right?
And if you want something even simpler, buy a wooden box, varnish it and screw on some legs to be able to move it wherever you want. Easier, impossible.
DIY Lamp: An Essential Accessory
Your nightstand needs a good lamp on top and you can make it without spending almost anything. Check out these two ideas with recycled materials. In the first one, they have created a tiny lamp with… a PVC pipe! In the video below, we made a table lamp out of a can of crushed tomato. They seem like two materials that do not stick much in a room but, decontextualized and with a little work on them, they look that good.
Work Zone: Affordable Desks
If you are lucky enough that your room is large enough to have a work area, you will need a desk. For this, you don’t need to spend too much money either. With a wooden board and a pair of supports, you can create a table where you can put your laptop and work at ease. Easels or wooden boxes?
Dresser: It’s Time To Customize An Ikea Furniture
For the dresser, an Ikea hack. The RAST dresser is an absolute Ikea classic and is quite cheap, only costing about 25 euros. Although without decorating it is also beautiful, to make it much more special you can customize it and transform it into a piece of furniture that makes a difference. We divide its front into geometric shapes with masking tape and fill them with matte Liberon paint, in different colors. Like?
A Beautiful Shelf To Decorate Your Room
The time has come to find a place to put the furniture. How about making a shelf with a little wood and leather? It’s a winning combination and you know it. Above, a model from Hubsch, a room decoration store, but one that you can also make at home. Below, an alternative that changes the leather straps for… belts!
More Decoration: Room With A Nice Carpet
To finish, it’s time to look at the ground. Do you dare to create your own rug from scratch? This wonder is made with a bunch of different pompoms, sewn onto a mesh that serves as the base for the rug. A warm oasis for your feet.
Well what, have we convinced you? room decoration without spending a lot is possible with a little imagination, proven! Come on, tell us what you think of all these ideas in the comments, that sharing is living.
