Bedrooms are the ultimate refuge. They need to be functional enough to keep you comfortable for a good night’s sleep and yet soothe your nerves after a long, stressful day. Bedroom furniture such as a wooden bed sets the tone for the room, but the rest of the décor need not be expensive to give it a cozy, personal feel. There are a number of DIY décor ideas to give your room a stylish twist. Here are some of the easy ones:
A Photo Collage
No matter how old you get, photographs will always be an intrinsic part of your memory keepsake. There are many ways to make a photo collage above your wooden bed. If you like the organized look, you can create a grid design of Polaroid prints. This could be as small as a 5 x 5 grid to as big as a 15 x 15 grid. If you prefer an organic flow, use framed photographs of indifferent sizes and orientations. Try maintaining a theme across the collage. The theme could be a subject or color story of the images.
Nothing feels as royal as sleeping in a poster bed. But, this type of bed is best suited to large rooms only. Plus, they are also expensive. As a more affordable option, you can create a canopy above the headboard of your wooden bed. For this, you need two rods that are as wide as the bed itself and a long length of flowing fabric. Mount one rod on the wall above the headboard, a few feet below the ceiling, and the second rod on the ceiling at a distance of about two feet from the wall. Drape the fabric length over the two rods such that a short length falls over the rod mounted on the ceiling and the remaining falls behind the bed. You could trim the drape with tassels for a fun element.
Origami Wall Art
Origami isn’t just beautiful to look at but is also therapeutic and stimulates certain parts of the brain. If you’re looking for a unique type of wall art, you could make a few origami pieces and arrange them as decorative. For example, you could create origami cranes in two or three colors and group them like birds in flight. Alternatively, you could create origami pyramids and arrange them as a large tessellation above a wooden bed. Origami wall art is also a great way to add color to your room.
Statement Macramé Wall Art
Macramé is another art form that is trending again. It’s easy to learn, inexpensive, and, when made on a large scale, has a dramatic impact. You can make a macramé wall hanging using cotton cords of a single color or with dyed macramé cords. You could even use the knots to create a large dreamcatcher. Alternatively, you can also create a cluster of smaller macramé wall art pieces. If you’re learning the art, it’s better to start with small pieces.
A Banner Of Paper Cut-Outs
There’s no easier DIY activity than making a paper garland. All you need is lots of colored paper, a pair of scissors and some string. Choose a shape that you like. It could be a circle, a heart, or even a bird silhouette. To make sure all your pieces are identical, it is best to cut the first piece out of a sheet of cardboard or stiff paper. You can then use this to trace the shape onto the other sheets. Then all you’ve got to do is cut and attach to the string to make a banner. Banner backdrops for your bed can be arranged in any way you like. This is a great way to add color to your room.
Washi Tape Wall Art
Washi tape is a versatile material that has proved very useful in-room décor. From creating geometric to random patterns, there’s a lot you can do with it. If you want to go big, how about taping lengths of different colored tape from one end of the wall to the other to create a wallpaper effect? Alternatively, you could create a grid pattern. Washi tape décor is all about patterns formed by straight lines and clean angles. Avoid attempting curves as they could quickly turn untidy. A washi tape is easily removable and hence, is ideal for rental homes too.
These ideas are not only inexpensive and easy to execute but also leave a lot of room to switch from one style to another. On the other hand, buying furniture such as a wooden bed needs more thought and planning. You must ensure that the furniture is made of good-quality wood. It should be sturdy enough to stand the test of time. That’s why it is always best to shop from known brands such as Woodsala.
