Staying at home is still preferable to this day with this pandemic situation. Most activities must now be done from home, including attending classes, working and attending religious services. Staying at home for a long period will inevitably end up in boredom. Doing activities outdoor enables you to see various sights; however, while staying at home, you will only see the same people and sights over and over.

To prevent boredom, you can try to give your bedroom a little makeover. You can change the theme of your bedroom, add a cosy corner or a new workspace to get a refreshing ambience that will make you forget you are staying in the same room. As a reference, here are six ways that you can do to makeover your bedroom:

Besides doing fun activities, another way to “kill” boredom is by changing the design theme of your bedroom. You can surf the internet to find interesting bedroom design theme inspirations that suit you. For example, you can set up a tropical theme by adding several pots of plants or applying a green paint on one of your bedroom walls.

Sort out your things

Don’t let your bedroom become messy with cluttered things everywhere. The boredom of staying at home can turn into stress if your bedroom is in a mess. You should tidy up your bedroom starting from the things that you no longer use. Keep only necessary things. You can throw away or donate the things that are still in a good condition but you no longer use. This is a way of applying the principle “less is more” to reduce non-functional elements to make the room feel more spacious.

Bring in new furniture

You can also makeover your bedroom by bringing in new piece of furniture. Open shelves or a new rug can be a simple element that creates an impression of a new bedroom design. The presence of new furniture may not only reduce boredom but also spark joy. You can experience the excitement of taking apart, assembling and arranging the position of the furniture in your bedroom. However, you should keep in mind to buy only functional furniture that is suitable for your bedroom.

Reposition your furniture

Not really keen on buying new furniture? No problem! It is not necessary to have new things to makeover your bedroom. Alternatively, you can rearrange the position of your bedroom furniture. A wardrobe that is originally on the left side can be moved to the right side. You can also move your furniture slightly to enhance the impression of spaciousness in your room. Basically, the way you reposition your furniture is totally up to you so long as you feel more comfortable spending time at home.

Make use of unused area

For those of you who have a bedroom balcony, you can make use of that area to ward off the boredom while staying at home. If it is usually neglected and forgotten, now is the time to make use of the area for fun activities. You can makeover your balcony area by adding some chairs, plants or a swing and then you can spend your early evening relaxing there.

Set up a cosy corner

The last way to makeover your bedroom is by setting up a cosy corner. What is your hobby? Is it reading, watching films or maybe lounging? Whatever it is, you can do it in your cosy corner. Place a sofa, a bean bag, a soft carpet and other things that can increase your comfort.

Those are six ways to makeover your bedroom. A new ambience in your bedroom can at least help to reduce boredom from staying at home for too long.
