How to Makeover your Room Without a lot of Effort

When our bedrooms feel dingy, they’re not great places to relax and enjoy. Your room might be in drastic need of a makeover, but you might not want to put in a lot of effort to do so. Here are some lazy ways you can change your room around.


Living with a lot of clutter can make your room feel like a nightmare zone. Tripping over the same things day in, day out will just annoy you in the long term. Even having too much furniture can make the room feel small and pokey.

Throwing away and decluttering is a cathartic process that will make you feel much better. Give unwanted items to charity and you’ll feel better about throwing away things that could still be usable.

Buy Fresh Linens

New bed linens can make a huge difference to the way the room feels. Treating yourself to a new set can enhance the theme of the room and remove any clashing prints. If you want to totally makeover your room, then this can be a good place to start working with the theme.

Check out Wall Art

Wall art is super versatile and can spruce up your room in minutes. Using this to your advantage can totally transform your room, without a lot of money or hassle. Portraits, prints and even posters can create a focal point in the room, which you can then use to inspire the design of the rest. Wall art comes in all shapes and sizes, to suit your own specific tastes.

Paint your Furniture

If your furniture is looking a little shabby or could just use a facelift, then you can give it a fresh coat of paint. There are types of paint that you can use on furniture without the need to sand or prepare the exterior. They come in a range of colours and finishes, from bright and glossy to subdued and matte.

Purchase a Rug

Rugs can do a lot to tie a room together and will vastly improve the look as a whole. Picking the right rug to go with all of the different elements of the room is essential, as you want it to add to the room instead of making it too busy. Consider the placement and size that would suit the room before you go shopping, then you’ll be prepared to buy if you see something that appeals.

Move Things Around

Just moving your furniture around can make a difference to the space, you’d be surprised just how much this can change your room. Repositioning the furniture can give pieces their time to shine and you might just love how it turns out. If you’re not so keen on the new design then you can always move things back easily.

Take these tips to kick off your next room makeover! This will get you in the mood to really switch things up and give you the motivation to tackle some of the bigger tasks around the house too.
