Budget Bedroom Makeover

Brought to you by Lowe's Creative Ideas

A boring, boxy bedroom goes from pedestrian to perfectly personal using easy, affordable designer ideas and upcycled accents.

Bed and headboard with dressers

Bedroom Makeover Ideas

Blah to Beautiful

Pick a soothing color scheme and add a bright accent color, like this unexpected coral hue, to inject energy. Add sophistication by layering textures and classic patterns, and then create a focal wall behind the bed with a paint color that complements other neutral walls. Then turn screen door inserts into a glamorous headboard. Revive furniture and flat door faces with easy paint treatments that build dimension.

Painted dresser and mirror

Attention to Detail

Finished to match the wall behind the bed and placed against a neutral wall, the dresser ties the room together. A silver allen + roth™ mirror (#356869) sets off the dresser refreshed with Valspar Signature paint in Tropical Bay (#5002-3C) and dry-brushed with La Fonda Villa Fountain (#5002-4B). Reflected in the mirror, the modified Greek key design of the allen + roth™ draperies contrasts with the ivory sheer curtain panels (#382696).

Bed pillows with Greek key design

Key to the Look

Reversible allen + roth™ accent pillows (#6814) repeat the Greek key design of the draperies (#435921).

Painted faux-panel interior door

Grand Entrance

Plain doors get an easy faux-panel paint treatment to add detail. A demilune table (#237888) and pretty accessories turn up the charm.

Headboard made from painted screen-door inserts

Screen Star

This chic Chippendale-look headboard is made from two inexpensive screen-door inserts (#442691). Just paint and hang on the wall.

Room color swatches

Color Combo

A sophisticated combination of neutrals, plus a punch of coral, is just right for this serene bedroom.
