How to make an indie bedroom? 

If you love using creativity to transform a decor item into something completely different, then the indie bedroom is the perfect style for you.

That’s because creativity is essential for the room to have its personality in every detail. 

Art fans, for example, can make a mural of illustrations (made by yourself or by independent artists) in place of the headboard. Or you can paint the door yourself to transform the room. Everything is possible to have an indie style bedroom.

5 ideas for indie-style bedroom

1. Innovate in the decorations

Don’t be afraid to overdo the decorations around the room. You can fill the wall with artist photos, art and posters. Have a bookshelf full of books and cd collections, and hang lights from the ceiling as well. 

Use your creativity to transform the ornaments into something entirely new. A vintage rug can be used as a headboard, for example. In fact, many independent artists sell beautiful art to use in this way. 

Another tip is to buy artificial plants to use on the wall or hang from the ceiling. It looks beautiful!

2. Mix styles 

Another feature of indie bedroom decor is the mix of styles. You don’t have to focus only on vintage, take the opportunity to put a mirrored bookcase in the room with a pallet bed. It’s an unusual mix but it works very well with the variety of decorations.

One way to be able to mix styles in indie decor is to buy the furniture separately. No need to make a room planned. Buy an old dressing table, a box bed, make a headboard yourself and decorate the walls with amazing photos. Ready! It’s the perfect recipe for a room with indie decor and cheap.

3. Invest in DIY 

Do you like to design and create handmade pieces? Any kind of craft fits in indie room decor. 

Even if you don’t have any manual skills, look for independent artists to help decorate the room. Buy paintings, rugs, handmade ornaments, macramé… Find unique pieces!

4. Neon lights 

Neon light is beautiful to highlight the beauty of the room. You can invest in the simplest form, such as ceiling lights or buy illuminated signs with creative phrases. 

Another idea is to buy a neon light of various colors. The ones colored in pink and blue are the most suitable for having a sensational indie bedroom style.

5. Customize your floor mirror 

The floor mirror is an essential item for the indie bedroom style, but to get away from the traditional, the tip is to customize the edges of the mirror. 

A simple way is to put lights around the frame. But you can also make collages with different stickers, use polaroid photos or plants. Choose the option that best matches your indie bedroom style.

What are the best colors for an indie bedroom?

As one of the greatest features of indie decor is the variety of ornaments, photos and arts, so our tip is to paint the bedroom walls in light and soft tones, such as white, off white or light blue. 

In decorations, colors can be more vibrant and colorful – even neon. This makes the indie room lively and stylish. 

But, if the idea is to have a modern and delicate environment, use images and paintings on the walls in light tones, such as pastel tones. This helps to smooth and standardize the color palette of your indie bedroom decor.

With planning, it’s impossible to go wrong when choosing your bedroom colors.

They’re cheap, easy to change out, and best of all, can be a conversation starter. Just arrange them on your window sill or hang them from hooks in your room to make your place look stunning. Planting fresh herbs is a brilliant idea too; rosemary looks particularly nice in pots. Not only will you have them on hand when you need to cook, but they’ll help freshen up your air and make it smell great.

Some questions and answers

What are indie rooms?

An indie room is a space set aside in your home that can be used as an office or a craft area. The idea behind an indie room is that you won’t feel guilty about making messes or having projects stacked around your house, because everything has its own place. Having a designated space to pursue personal interests and hobbies means that you can keep up with them better than if they were just scattered around in your living areas.

How do I make my room look indie?

There are a lot of details that go into making your room look indie. Keep reading to learn some tips and tricks you can use to make it happen.

1- Hanging a few posters of your favorite bands is a good start, but not enough to make it look authentic. If you have enough room, hang some old record albums or stack them up next to your bookshelf. You can even go all out and purchase a turntable if you have one laying around. Remember: don’t forget that old fashioned aesthetic! If possible, decorate with trinkets from vintage shops and thrift stores.

2- Be sure to play some music if you have a stereo. Posters and records can help, but nothing replaces sound! If you don’t have a stereo, consider buying one used at an antique shop or on craigslist. Whatever it takes.

3- Make sure you have a few candles. It can be tough to find good candles, but Etsy is always a good place to start. If you don’t want to buy them, consider melting down some old candles and pouring them into mason jars or small cups. You could even try making your own!

4- Lighting is everything when it comes to creating a comfortable atmosphere, so be sure that you take care of it!
