Paint old bedroom furniture

If you have owned the same bedroom furniture for many years, they might not look as nice as they used to. To breathe new life into your old furniture pieces, you may want to give them a fresh coat of paint!

For this girls' bedroom, interior designer Jean Suzanne Sy chose powder blue for the bed frame and a cool gray for the dresser.

Make the most of the hallway

If you have an empty narrow space in between your rooms, you can spruce it up with framed pictures on the wall. Suzanne furnished this hallway with a long desk, two country-style chairs, and a storage unit with shelves and cupboards.

Replace a regular bed with a daybed

Instead of a standard bed, you can choose a daybed for your bedroom! This is also the perfect choice for those living in studio units because it can be used as a sofa during the day and a bed during the night. 

RL Tip: You may also want to hang a removable duyan or hammock above your daybed. This can serve as the perfect spot for reading a book or taking a nap. 

Line the wall with shelves and cupboards

If you have a plain bedroom wall, you can put wall-mounted shelves and cupboards! A friendly neighborhood karpintero that has been referred by a trusted friend or relative can help you install these storage options. 

RL Tip: If you can't spend too much cash, you may want to think about putting up the storage options yourself. You can find step-by-step tutorials on Youtube.

Highlight your bed

If you want to spruce up your bedroom on a budget, you can put up framed photos above your bed. You may also want to replace your old pillow cases and bedsheets.
