4 Bedroom DIY Ideas

If you’re looking to keep busy without leaving the house, there’s plenty of DIY jobs that can be done at home. And as it’s National Bed Month so we thought we’d start with the bedroom!

 

Your bedroom is a cosy, sacred space that’s always occupied so it’s important to ensure your room is comfortable and organised, with everything working properly. With busy work, home and social lives, it’s easy to put jobs that need doing round the house to the back of your to-do-list. So, now is the time to get on top of it all!

 

These fast and stylish home improvement ideas will give your bedroom space a fresh new look and feel.

 

Revamp your drawers

 

For a quick fix at minimal cost, revive your plain or outdated chest of drawers with a fresh lick of paint and customise the style with new drawer knobs. When painting furniture, simply use two light coats of primer and two light coats of paint. Give each coat of primer and paint the time it needs to dry thoroughly before applying the next. For bevelled and raised sections, use a high-quality angled brush and to ensure a smooth finish on the flat surface, use a foam roller.

 

Identify the primary metallic features in your room and choose drawer knobs in the finish that matches. From satin and polished finish to brass, copper, matte black and silver tones, there’s something to suit every chest of drawers. Copper drawer knobs look particularly striking on dark tone furniture pieces and matte black is a trendy yet timeless tone to feature. Matte black drawer knobs will suit both light and dark tone furnishings which makes them a go-to for those who love to frequently change up their home accessories and décor.

 

Add elegance to bedroom interiors with luxury crystal drawer knobs and maintain a cohesive theme throughout the room by switching out your dressing table drawer knobs to match your chest of drawers. Do the same for bedside tables and watch how these elements tie everything in the room together.

Paint and fit a shelf for storage

 

Keep side tables and drawers clutter-free with extra wall storage space. Choose shelf brackets that are just a bit shorter than the depth of the shelves that you want to install. Available in a neutral white finish, we offer three sizes to suit your requirements. For a streamlined look, paint the shelf to match your wall colour or create a statement feature by painting it to stand out. For this task, you’ll need a paint brush to get into the corners and complete a smooth finish across the larger surface area. Place a sheet underneath as you paint to avoid paint drips on the carpet and once dry, fit the shelf in place then decorate with a few bedroom accessories.

 

Stop the squeaky door hinge!

 

Don’t put it off any longer, get it sorted or be at risk of going insane. We’re only kidding. But, whilst you’ve got the weekend to get on top of DIY jobs, you can’t ignore the squeak! Check out our tips on how to stop a door from squeaking.

 

And finally, clean forgotten areas!

 

Keep your sanctuary germ free by deep-cleaning your bedroom and other rooms at home. Hoover under the bed and move furnishings around to get to the floor space. Dust skirting boards and wash curtains if they’re looking a bit dusty. Using EPA-approved cleaning products, take the time to disinfect your door handles, cupboard handles, light switches and surfaces. Use disinfectant wipes to clean your TV remote, phone and other frequently touched items. Strip the bedding and wash on a high heat to kill any bacteria. Make your bed up with fresh sheets, light a candle and enjoy a relaxing night in after all your hard work!
