4 Cool Hipster Room Decorating Ideas

No need to go mainstream


You've heard it on the radio, TV, and even from your friends. But what does being a hipster actually mean? According to sources, hipsters have a distinct style that many would consider as cool, urban, and creative. If you also like to express your personality and would love to have a special place that's a cut above the rest, you can decorate your home with a few hipster touches. 

Aside from visiting thrift shops for pieces that you can add to your space, we've rounded up products from different stores that can help you achieve a cool, urban vibe at home. Be guided by these picks and ideas and express yourself:

Spruce up your walls

Don't leave your walls bare! Aside from photographs, posters, prints, and the usual wall decals, you can liven up your room using string lights for a warm, whimsical vibe. If you're looking for something even more unique, you can work with alphabet lanterns! These would look great on the wall above your bed.

DIY is essential  

Showcase your talents and highlight the things you love. Craft small items using readily available materials and use it to decorate a plain corner. If you're not yet ready to tackle a DIY project, you can shop for eclectic finds that can add personality to your space? Choose pieces in vibrant hues to serve as accents to the space.

Mix and match your items

Don't limit yourself to just one style when decorating your space. For starters, you can borrow a couple of items from your parents' house and pair it with pieces that you recently bought. This allows you to create a home with just the right balance of old and new. You can also drop by thrift stores for a couple of vintage finds. 

Got a metal side table similar to the one in the photo? You can set up a vignette of vintage finds on top of it.

Prioritize comfort

Your home is about you and your style. Since you want to be able to move around freely without feeling any restrictions, keep your space comfortable by adding fluffy pillows. You may choose to decorate your bed or sofa with statement pillows and a Boho-inspired duvet to keep up with the quirky urban vibe.
