How To Create a Pinterest-Worthy Bedroom

Recently, I’ve fallen in love with watching extreme room makeovers on YouTube. Video after video, I’ve noticed a trend in the types of purchases necessary for that perfect minimalistic, aesthetically pleasing room. If you’re anything like me, you’ve been itching to create a space just like the dream bedrooms in those videos. Inspired by the amazing transformations, here are my tips for achieving your ideal room makeover:

Step 1: Clean and declutter.

Before doing any sort of decorating or rearranging, it’s important to start with a clean slate. This means going on a deep cleaning and decluttering spree. Make sure to go through every nook and cranny, and don’t forget to tackle that growing pile of clothes in your closet.

Step 2: Choose a color scheme.

Most people stick with the all-white color scheme because it’s the popular aesthetic at the moment. Oftentimes, they add gold or black accents around the room for some spice. Alternatively, YouTubers sometimes feature both white and earthy wood tones in their color palette, which I really enjoy.

Step 3: Pick out a desk and bed frame.

Simple and minimalist is super trendy nowadays. In nearly every Pinterest or Tiktok-inspired room makeover video, a quick trip to IKEA is a must. People love a standard white or light wood bed frame and desk. Others repurpose what they already have by simply painting it. Nothing like a good upcycling moment. 

Step 4: Invest in new bed sheets and decorative pillows.

This step is where people begin to add pops of color into their rooms. Purchase a simple or solid-colored bed sheet, and pair it with some colorful throw pillows of your choice. It’s important to keep a color scheme in mind so that everything looks cohesive and appealing to the eye. 

Step 5: Buy some real (or fake) tropical plants.

Having plants run down your walls (without going overboard) really adds some liveliness to your room. The white walls bring out the green in the plants, and it just looks super aesthetically pleasing.

Step 6. Decorate however your heart desires.

Get creative here! This is where people start to add their own personal touches to their room which, in my opinion, is where the fun really happens. Some people put up geometric-shaped mirrors, polaroid pictures, fairy lights, flowers, and posters on their walls to add some more depth and color. Other good ideas I’ve seen include purchasing a cute rug, throw blanket, or chair to make the room feel more cozy. Don’t forget to keep your color scheme in mind!

And there you have it, a simple yet aesthetically pleasing room fit for your Pinterest board! Happy decorating!
