RL Picks: 5 Must-See Bedroom Makeovers

Discover how to change your personal space with our favorite bedroom transformations


Since the bedroom is our sanctuary, it's important for us to invest in quality pieces and make an effort to improve the space. If you've always wanted to transform your bedroom, we have collected some of the best bedroom transformations to inspire you. Find out how these homeowners and design teams made the most of these personal spaces below.

Paint your walls

To spruce up the bedroom, interior designer Kimi Manuel suggests a painted wall. "Painted accent walls are an easy, economical, and fast way to spruce up a space," explains Kimi. She advises homeowners to choose colors that harmonize well and simple patterns that are easy to execute. For this 24sqm studio unit, Kimi and the rest of the makeover team led by Kristine Neri-Magturo chose lime green, gray, red, and white stripes.

Choose neutral colors and warm lights

For the bedroom of couple Rose and Mike, interior designer Hannah Acab-Faustino created a hotel-like feeling with warm shades of beige and brown. She also chose mood lighting to create a cozy and relaxing hotel vibe. She paired warm cove lights concealed in the drop ceiling with pin lights in various corners.

Start with the big furniture pieces

Since this space of homeowners Babet and Gerald had to serve as a bedroom and nursery, interior designer Ayet San Jose and her Design1528 team needed a bed and a crib. Ayet advises homeowners to pick the bed, crib, and other huge furniture pieces first before anything else. She explains that once you have these first, you will be able to determine the appropriate sizes of the other items in the room.

Move furniture pieces

Sometimes, you have to change the existing furniture layout for a new look. This is exactly what interior designer Vera Villarosa did in this 15sqm bedroom. The old bed used to be placed perpendicular to the windows and took up too much space. To remedy this, Vera replaced the piece with a new custom-made bed placed against the wall.

Highlight the bed

Since the bed is the most important part of the room, you can choose to draw attention to it. In the bedroom of Adrian and Cherry, design consultant Grace Moslares of Magara Designs painted the existing dirty pink walls white. She also made the bed the focal point of the space with red and orange stripes.
