Choosing A Color Scheme For Room Renovation

Painting A Rental Property

I currently am renting my family's home. While rented bedrooms cannot be painted it does not limit the wonderful make-overs you can still create. With your focus on changing the styles and colors of furniture and furnishings, you can make some real magic happen in your children's lives.

Tips For Choosing The Right Colors For Creating A Teenage Bedroom

  • Consult with your child. Find out what colors they like and enjoy.
  • Base your color choices around the vibe you want the room to reflect and always include neutral colors like either whites, greys, or creams. Build your colors around those neutral tones.
  • Avoid dark colors which make your space appear smaller and can affect your moods and sleeping patterns.
  • Colors have the ability to affect our moods. Colors that are known to attract positive energy include white, blue, red, yellow, green, pink and purple.

Choosing A Great Color Scheme Also Depends On Your Theme

  • For a glamorous teenager bedroom include gold or silver, teamed with black and white. Include a pastel such as rose pink to break up the intensity of color.
  • For a romantic room purples, or soft pinks work well but in moderation, remembering to base them around neutral tones.
  • For a peaceful cheery vibe to a space, blues, yellows, teamed with neutrals are excellent.

    For my Hollywood Glam bedroom make-over I decided to go with all white furniture with gold,silver, dusty pink furnishings and accessories, with a dab of black here and there to break up the color.

Second Step Giving Old Furniture A Makeover

Painting Old Furniture DIY

As a single mum I couldn't afford to buy new furniture so I repainted my daughter's wardrobe, shelving, bedside table and bookcase with white acrylic paint I already had in my art kit. Painting the furniture was time consuming but came up really good giving the old furniture a new lease of life..

Free Furniture

I decided a nice white dressing table and mirror was something I wanted to add to the room for my daughter, so she had a place to do her hair and makeup. I posted an ad on Facebook asking if anyone was giving one away for free. To my amazement I received a message the next day that a lady had a dressing table for free if I wanted to pick it up. I was ecstatic. I painted it with a couple coats of white paint to jazz it up and it looked great. So far I still had not spent a cent on my bedroom makeover.
