Rearrange the Furniture

Rearranging furniture in a room goes a long way. You can change the position of the bed, table, couch and dressers and see the difference that creates.

A crowded room can look spacious by just rearranging furniture, not necessarily taking away some stuff, like most people think. You can also try with different positions to see which one matches with your goal.


You might consider setting up a play area in the corner of the bedroom for a busy kid. For one that loves space, you have to minimize the things you put in their bedroom.

For some bedrooms, you don’t have to do much. Just rearranging the furniture, removing the underused things and adding items that the kids will need might be all you need.

Surprise your little one by changing the look in their room without spending a single penny. Try using all the available space until you get it right and give your kid the feel of a new bedroom.


Use Leftover Paint

If you have been keeping old cans of paint, now is the time to bring them to life. Most of these have some left over paint. If it can paint the whole room, then you go ahead and do it.

But if it’s small portions in different colors, then paint a small area like a corner, ceiling, a particular wall etc. There is no need to buy new paint when you have old cans that you kept in the garage.

Create a Bed With Old Pallets

Old pallets are an easy and afforadable way to create a new bed frame. You can check for pallets at your recycling center. These shouldn’t cost you any money.

If they charge you, then it’s a small fee compared to buying a  bed frame. Now, all you need is a good quality mattress and maybe an elephant pillow for added comfort.

Recycle Used Materials

When decorating, nothing should go to waste. The best place to test your decorating skills is the kids’ bedroom. Any weird design will pass as long as it is colorful and bright.
