2023 is around the corner, and you may be gearing up for some resolutions in the coming year. Although it is true transformation begins inward, an appealing space can help facilitate the process. So why not get started with revamping your space? Unlike the common assumption, updating our room need not cost a fortune or take up a lot of your time. We have compiled a list of six easy ways to give any room an immediate lift:

  1. Clean Your Room

As boring as it may seem, this is the single most important step in any room makeover. So play your favorite music, roll up your sleeves, and get to work. Clean up your space by discarding garbage and replacing broken items. However, if you want to make a significant change in how your room looks, you must let go of some items. Sift through your belongings and ask, “When did I last use this for the last time?” As a rule of thumb, do not keep something you have not used in the last six months.

If you fancy using some of the items in the future, you are better off keeping them in storage units instead of throwing them away permanently. This will save you money by not buying the same items again. Do not assume finding a storage unit is a tough nut to crack. Regardless of which state you live in, storage units are pretty much peppered around across America. For example, if you live in Olathe, you can find nearby options for storage Olathe has to offer without much heel-dragging.   

  • Put A Fresh Coat Of Paint

Colors have a significant effect on our mood. That is why painting the walls is a simple way to update the look of your room. Picking a paint color is a chance to express yourself, so give some thought to how you feel when making your decision. Let’s say you have a passion for gardening. In that case, you should select a muted shade of green or yellow paint to evoke the feeling of being outside.

You should never lose sight of the fact that your bedroom serves primarily as a place of rest. Although there is no such thing as a “wrong” color, it is best to steer clear of stimulating hues like yellow, bright red, and orange. You can save considerable money by engaging in DIY painting.

  • Use Rugs

A rug is a great addition to any bedroom and one of our top recommendations for redesigning a space. They make a room feel more welcoming while keeping the floor warm. You may get rugs in a wide variety of materials, from leather and sheepskin to natural fibers and patterned silks. If you are looking for a more rustic look, rugs woven from natural materials are ideal. On the other hand, an oriental rug made of Persian silk will add a dash of exoticism. Likewise, you may add some flair to your boring bedroom by decorating it with a set of colorful, patterned rugs.  

  • Apply Wallpapers

Interior designers highly recommend using wallpaper as a decorative element in any space. That said, wallpapers should not be draped haphazardly only to cover up boring walls. Instead, they need to be a focal point of the overall room’s design. And one way to do that is to make a feature wall. Wallpaper, being more of a fashion statement than a functional covering, works well as an accent wall. When designing an accent wall, go all out with the biggest designs and brightest colors.

To pull off the desired looks, the placement of the wallpaper holds the ultimate key. Ideally, the accent wall should draw attention to the room’s primary attraction. In most cases, this means picking the wall against the bed. The wallpaper must be the right size as well. A good rule of thumb is to make the wallpaper a tad bit longer than the length of your bed.

  • Invest In Window Treatment

The very term “window treatment” connotes opulence. No wonder why window treatments are sometimes overlooked or not even considered in the first place by the average person. But window treatment does not have to be expensive. Several budget-friendly window treatment ideas can help unify an otherwise disjointed room.

Talking about affordable yet appealing window treatment ideas, full-length curtains are trending red-hot these days. Long, floor-to-ceiling drapes make a room feel more spacious. Full-length curtains could infuse the space with a great deal of vitality and warmth depending on their material, color, and texture.

Shutters also make up for an excellent window treatment alternative. White shutters are a timeless choice, especially when they open to a view of lush foliage outside. Combining awnings with shutters is another way to add flair to your room. For an extra beachy touch, place a bench beneath your shutters.

  • Light It Up

Adequate lighting is crucial to the success of any interior design project. The way a room is lit can also alter our impressions of its textures and colors. To illuminate a space, you can choose from a wide variety of stunning fixtures. So it is easy to feel overwhelmed. However, if you start by defining your aesthetic preferences, you are well on your way. What kind of style best describes your home? Farmhouse quaint, ’50s swank, or laid-back California? Once you have an idea of how you want your space to look, you can begin looking for furnishings that complement that theme.

After you have determined the placement, quantity, and type of lighting fixtures, screencap prospective illumination sources and paste them onto a blank document. Consider their dynamic: are you using a variety of metals in the same way? Do you have a range of textures (like lampshades)? Is there a spot that could use a splash of color that would not clash with the rest of the room? Not everything has to go together perfectly, but the whole ensemble should have a consistent vibe.


Who does not love giving their space a facelift aligning with current trends? While the latest trends in home decoration may be fascinating, they may also cause you to go overboard with your renovating costs. Fortunately for you, we have covered easy makeover ideas for your room, which are also friendly to your wallet.
