I love my room, and I keep it the way I like; clean and stylish! People ask me why I put so much effort into decorating my room, and I tell them because, at the end of a tiring day, I want to return to a place which makes me happy. The other day I was telling my colleague to do anything to make her room look like she wants it to. She was upset because she wasn’t allowed to put posters on her wall, so I gave her a few ideas to do it without breaking the law.
So, that gave me an idea of digging some cool tricks to make your room prettier. You won’t have to do a lot of work and it will still do the magic.
1. Create Your Custom Marquee Sign
Instead of putting on fairy lights directly on the wall, curtains etc, create your custom marquee sign. It can say whatever you want. It will look amazing, and will light up your room real nice.
2. Add Some Nature
Plants always look good, and a little green will fill up that empty void in your room. If you are thinking that you are too lazy to take care of plants, you can always get some cacti. They look fabulous and require comparatively less care.
3. Make Your Own Jewelry Display
All you have to do is take an old wooden board which has a vintage feel to it. Then, hammer some nails on it and display your jewelry in style.
4. Light Up Your Pictures
Instead of putting them directly on the wall, hang them or clip them to your fairy lights. That will put them in an awesome light display.
5. Word Wall Art
You can either get cut-outs from your favourite fabric or paper, or you can get large print-outs of the letters. If you like minimal decoration, the word ‘wall art’ is for you.
6. Paper Crane Curtains
They are colourful and look really pretty. Also, folding a paper crane is not at all hard. Learn it here.
7. Ping Pong Lights
This will take your whole ‘dim lighting’ game to a new level. All you have to do is poke holes in small ping pong balls and put a tiny bulb inside each one of them. And then, you will have this beautiful string of soft lights.
8. Power Strip Organiser
Cluttered up wires and chargers are the ugliest things in the room. They look so bad, but then you can’t survive without them. Hence, an easy way to sort things out.
9. Curtain Rods With Wooden Branches
This avant-garde design will make your room whimsical and extremely unique.
10. Pocket Memo Board
It’s unique and will look super cute. All you have to do is stitch or pin some old jeans pockets to your memo board, or bulletin board. And tada… you have the most awesome board ready.
11. Create Bottle Lamps
I don’t think I have to tell you how to make them. It’s incredibly easy and looks beautiful. You can line up few of these near your bed or table, and you are done!
12. Create Paper Streamers
Again, easy to make and inexpensive. They can be extremely colourful or plain, whatever you want. And when you grow sick of one design, you can easily make another.
Hope these were helpful. Until next time…
