1. Barn Doors

Barn doors are surprisingly accessible. All you really need is a big enough wall, and you can expand any space with a barn door.

In the bedroom setting it makes the space look bigger and more luxurious. The best part is that you can mount the door with relative ease using tools that many people already have on hand.

3. Loft Bed

For the kiddos, it doesn’t get much better than the loft bed. In addition to being super cool, it also frees up lots of space in a smaller bedroom. The kiddos can sleep up top, and play beneath the bed. It’s a win-win!


4. Storage Under Your Bed

If you’re limited on space, you can improve your bedroom by adding additional storage shelves beneath your bed. The design concept can look nice, and on a practical level it also just helps you make the most out of modest dimensions.

5. Quilts for Days:

Who doesn’t love a nice warm quilt? I’m firmly of the opinion that in addition to being a great way to stay warm during the summer, they are also good for your soul. A hand made quilt makes any room feel more personal, so get to the knitting and stay warm in style this winter.

6. Custom Headboards

Headboards can make a room look a little bit stuffy. There is no need for a tired old design concept when you can improve the situation through a little bit of improvisation. With a little bit of spare wood, a sander, and some basic woodworking tools, you can make your own headboard to mount on the wall.

This is a particularly great idea for a teenager or even a young child. The board itself can remain for years, while the pictures and small mementos periodically get swapped out. It’s an outstanding way to help your young ones focus on the things that they really love in life.


14. Paint Your Own Bedroom

Painting your own bedroom is a great way to take some ownership over the space. The process is surprisingly easy once you get the hang of all the equipment, and doing it yourself can save yourself hundreds (or more) on the cost of a contractor. Plus DIY is so in nowadays, you can easily search how to use letter stencils with paint and go through the procedure thoroughly for a better outcome.

Remember, dark colors make a space smaller, while lighter colors will make them feel larger.

15. Do it Yourself Platform Bed

A platform bed is an elegant feature that the average joe may well feel is beyond their means. Not so. This is a moderate level project but with the right tools and a little bit of know-how you should be able to enjoy the benefits of a platform bed in no time at all.
