We have to agree that the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about home decor is the living room. It’s the main room where we entertain our guests and likely the room where we spend most of our time during the day too (that and the kitchen). But it’s a huge mistake to neglect other rooms of a home and if you have that nagging feeling of guilt too, read on.

While bedrooms are usually small compared to the living room, it doesn’t mean you should limit your decorating efforts to just bedding and a nightstand, with an occasional wall hanging. There’s more to bedroom decor and we’d like to show you several DIY bedroom decor ideas that you will likely find useful and inspiring.

Hammock Chair

Do you have some spare unoccupied space in your bedroom? You can make use of it by placing a chair there, or better yet, make it a DIY hammock chair. It will have an enormous effect in transforming the room decor by adding a lot of interest and a feature to look forward to spending time, as a reading nook or a private space to relax.

Bed Canopy

We had to include a tutorial for a bed canopy because that’s one of the best ways to completely revamp your bedroom decor. A canopy can make the room look cozier, even chic or boho. There’s little doubt about its decor value and many reasons to build it.

Chic Style Hook Rack

Whether your bedroom needs a hook rack is for you to decide, but this idea is for something that adds decor value more than it does function (although it is quite useful nonetheless). We want to add a chic accent to the room decor and using attractive vintage door knobs for a hook rack is a great way to do it.

Yarn Orb Ornament

Whether it’s for seasonal decor or as a more permanent decoration, colorful yarn orbs add that whimsical accent to your bedroom decor. Hang them from the ceiling or on the wall for pops of color and some vibrant design elements.

The DIY pebble hanger idea is one of those very simple yet genius ideas that can make all the difference. Find some unoccupied wall space in your bedroom and attach these pebbles for some whimsical accent.

You might want to have a wall clock in your bedroom and that’s absolutely fine, but here’s a different idea for one. Choose your family photos or photos that have sentimental value to you and make them into a DIY clock.
