The movement control order (MCO) has been extended until 12 May and we’re not even sure if it will be lifted by then. This means that we have to continue to stay home so that the frontliners like healthcare workers, the police, the army and food delivery riders among many others can do their job.
For some of us, staying home is great and all, but after being home for such a long period of time, you might start to feel that you need a change of environment. This calls for a room makeover!
The bedroom is one of the easiest places to do a makeover as it is relatively small and wouldn’t require much to see a noticeable difference. All you need are a few items that can give your room a refreshing new look, plus they’re super affordable!
1. Foam wallpaper
These are great if you want to change the colour of your walls without having to paint them which can be very tedious and messy. You can easily stick the wallpaper on your wall surface as they are self-adhesive. They come in various colours and textures that you can choose to your liking!
Price: Less than RM3 per piece.
Note that this is the price for only one piece of the wallpaper. To fill up an entire wall, you would probably need 50 to 100 pieces.
2. Fairy lights
Fairy lights can give your room a whole different kind of mood, especially if you have a wall that’s just a little too empty. You can even put it on your curtains for a dreamy feel.
Price: Less than RM10
3. LED Lights
If you think fairy lights are a little too girly for you (no discrimination against men who like fairy lights), you can also opt for LED lights! You can line your ceiling, bed frame or window frame with a few strips of LED lights that display a range of different colours that you can change with a remote control.
Price: Less than RM30
4. Cute table lamps
Table lamps are a great way to add some personality to your room, especially with these cute ones that you can just stare at all night long. Aren’t they pretty?
5. Cardboard Smartphone Projector
Transform your own room into a mini theatre with this simple and super affordable smartphone projector. All you need is your smartphone and this mini projector kit that uses lenses to reflect what’s on your phone screen to the wall.
6. Floating wall shelves
You could use these as a form of wall decoration to give your room a touch of something new – not to mention a little more dimension too! Place plants, books or photo frames on it and it will immediately transform a plain wall into a simple centre-piece that is aesthetically pleasing to the eye.

7. New curtains
Curtains are a statement piece and it changes the whole look of your room. Whether you are going for a minimalistic look or an edgy look, you can portray that through your curtains! Plain-coloured curtains are simpler and easier to match while those with prints will need a little more effort to match with the other items in your room.

And there you have it! These items aren’t very significant on their own, but bring them all together and I promise you, your room will not look or feel the same way again!
