Budget Friendly DIY Refreshers for Your Bedroom

DIY How To Bedroom Refresh

Is your morning routine starting to feel monotonous? If you're sick of waking up in the same boring bedroom day after day, here are some simple fixes for a quick bedroom refresh. You'd be surprised how a few small tweaks can make all of the difference. But be careful — sometimes going from drab to fab can come at a higher price than you bargained for.

At  Mattress Firm, we want to help you get the bedroom of your dreams, without breaking your budget. Check out a few of our favorite tips on how to give your bedroom a total upgrade on-the-cheap.

Invest in Multi-purpose Furniture

Whether you want to give an old piece of furniture a new look or want to try your hand at getting crafty with something new, there are several do-it-yourself projects that can easily transform a bedroom. From night stands to decorative desks, there are endless ways to transform your furniture with a new look.

If you have a smaller space, consider getting pieces that can be used in multiple ways. For example, a small console table beside your bed can also be used as a shelf or a desk. Perfect for late work nights or breakfast in bed!

To maximize storage, you can also create a nightstand out of old shelves or even a crate. For a nice finishing touch, buy a can of spray paint and give that old piece of furniture a pop of color. Place a vase of flowers and your favorite nighttime read on top and your room will feel instantly brighter.

Get Creative With Your Headboard

Does your headboard have you yawning — but not in a good way? Turn your bedroom into a stylish sanctuary by upgrading your headboard.

Some of the most beautiful headboards are crafted out of wood. Find a few pieces of distressed wood and stain them to your liking for a homey yet sophisticated look. Looking for something a little more minimalist? Use a large piece of  plywood as your base and include fun shelving on the side for a simple look.

If you're feeling crafty, this  woven wooden headboard is a great way to give your bed a little more character.

Add a Fresh Coat of Paint

Paint is a great one-step way to change the entire look and feel of a room. Whether you update the whole room or just an accent wall, it can brighten any space and even help wake you up. Lighter colors and pastels such as light blue, green and yellow are proven to help get you out of bed. Nothing says good morning like a bright and colorful room!

You can also use paint to refresh some of your older furniture pieces. From polka dots to stripes to a wall full of floral, Mattress Firm recommends adding instant flair to your old, used furniture with fun patterns and bright colors. You can even  paint a headboard for a fun bedroom accent.

Whether you give your room a complete makeover or just consider a few simple upgrades, there's nothing like having a bedroom designed just for you. From adding a fresh coat of paint to refurbishing an otherwise dirty, old piece of furniture, with Mattress Firm's help, there are endless ways to spruce up your style — all while staying within your budget.
