This room actually kind of works, it has the bunker, the nightstand, the shelves, and a corner for studying. However, it is completely dark and, honestly, for me this brings a really “weighted energy (does that make sense to you?).

So, this is how it turned out after a bit of work done:

A new color on the walls (even if that color is white, still counts), a new ceiling, new framing on the windows PLUS the furniture changes all come together to create this new, bright bedroom that’s suitable for children to live in. I’m sure they’re even having better nights of sleep in this new, spacious bedroom.

This room is really simple, seems like someone started to work on it and then decided to postpone the project forever. Looks like it was actually being made into a master bedroom or something, but in the middle of the way, it turned out the kids would make a better use of the space.

Check out how it is now:

A fresh coat of white paint was also used here, but this homeowner decided to do something a bit more fun and use this geometric shape pattern on the walls too. It looks really...breezy, don’t you think? I think that’s the perfect word to describe this room.

The red walls and unfinished sort of pink flooring create a nightmare for anyone who walks in here thinking about making a room for the kids. But this homeowner decided to face the challenge and this is how it turned out:

Doesn’t the room look so much better now? The walls are brighter, but there are still elements of red around the room - like the chair and wall decoration. I love how they created that half gray half white on the previously red wall, I think it looks great and unique!


Everything here comes together perfectly to create a lovely and fun bedroom for the little one.

Bedroom transformation before and after

This bedroom that was previously a nursery (probably an unfinished one too), has now become a small bedroom for the boy. The transformation counts on:

  • Adhesive decoration on the wall
  • A new bed
  • A pouf
  • A rhino wall decor

It’s so simple and yet, it creates something really cool! Children will surely love having a bedroom that’s just their own, don’t you think?

Not only is this room ugly (let’s face it, that’s the word to describe it), it’s also messy and cluttered. Not a doubt here that this bedroom needed some work done ASAP. The remodeling didn’t let down, check out this amazing transformation:

This is how the bedroom transformation turned out and it’s amazing! I love how they used the coral color (remember it was considered the color of the year 2019 by Pantone?) with this equestrian theme. It looks great and refreshing. I’d love to sleep in a room like that!
