How to Turn Your Room Into Your Dream Space
Have you ever gone to a friend’s house and been blown away by her room? Your bedroom is supposed to be your sanctuary–your private area for much needed alone time. When you go back to yours, however, it just feels blah and plain. Well, here are some ideas for adding your personality and flair, without breaking the bank.
*Always get your parents’ permission to make the changes you want.
Paint Your Room
The easiest way to make a bold change is to change your paint color, and there are so many ways to do this. You can stay with subtle or move to shocking. Even more fun is to add accents. If you paint the room one color, why not add a splash of something else to the moldings or even to the details in your doors? It’s just enough splash without going overboard.
Get Some Decals
Another way to change your walls with little-to-no damage involves adding decals. There are so many companies, from Target to Fathead, that sell decals. There are even companies that do custom work. Most decals easily peel off with no permanent effect on your walls.
Push the Envelope
If your idea of pushing the envelope is far beyond paint, why not create your own wall masterpiece? As long as your parents approve, why not make the wall your own canvas? Splatter painting is so much fun, and you can even get your friends involved. What starts as silly can end up as art! A great way to splatter the wall is to attach small balloons filled with paint to the wall, and then poke them with a little pin. Just sit back and watch what happens. Of course, if you are going to do this, it gets rather messy, so you need a parent there to make sure no one gets hurt.
Don’t Forget Your Furniture
With older furniture that needs to be refurbished, you can do some of the same things. There are many websites that can teach you how to resurface the wood before you paint. You can even go to your local hardware store; the sales people might have great ideas to help you get started.
There are so many great ideas you can use. Just add your personality! In no time, your room will be a new version of your private sanctuary. Just make sure your room makeover is fun!
