Many homeowners have a boring room that they want to change up, but they’re not sure where to start. Below are 6 easy ways you can fix up a boring room and reinvigorate some life into it.

A New Paint Color

Our first suggestion is to try out a new paint color. When a room has been a single color for a long period of time, we often stop noticing it. Once you leave the room, you may even struggle to remember what color that room is. Changing to a new color is an instant way to make a room feel like new again.

Try choosing something that is completely different from your current color. For instance, if your room is currently a darker color, go with something lighter. Another option is to paint an accent wall, using two different colors in the room. Head over to your local hardware store this weekend and grab some paint swatches, then start imagining what your room could look like in a different color.

Change the Floors

The next option is to change up your floors. Replacing worn down carpeting with something newer is not only a way to make the room look different, but it’s more comfortable for your feet. You could also tear up the carpet entirely and install some tile or hardwood floors.

For those of you with hardwood floors already, a more affordable option is just having them refinished. According to, “Solid hardwood, as well as most engineered hardwood flooring can be stripped, sanded, and stained the same, or even a different stain color. Refinishing wood flooring can give your home a refreshed new look with a new and different color of stain applied to your existing flooring.”

Explore the different options for your floors, then see what works for you. Once you change them up, you’ll likely wonder why you waited so long to do this.

Try Different Lighting

Lighting plays a big role in any room and it’s often one of the easiest things to change. If you’re looking for a simple, quick change, try playing around with the lighting. For example, you can install a dimmer switch in the room or replace your regular lightbulbs with some colored ones. You could also change up the curtains or blinds covering your windows. There are plenty of things you can do with the lighting of your room, each of which can make a big difference.

Replace the Furniture

Sometimes replacing the furniture in the room, rather than making changes to the room itself, can have a big impact. If that couch you’re sitting on is worn down, or that kitchen table is starting to fall apart, now is the time to replace them. As furniture wears down slowly over time, you may not even notice how bad of shape something is in. A good thing to do is closely inspect all your major furniture pieces and see if it’s time for an upgrade. By just replacing something like your couch you can make a room much more enjoyable to be in.

Add in Some Newer Technology

New technology can also make a room more exciting. Try upgrading to a newer model TV or adding in a surround sound system. You could also grab a voice assistant for your home or add in a brand new computer. Technology pieces change practically every day, so if you haven’t upgraded something in a way, chances are it is out of date by now.

Add Some Standout Pieces

Finally, consider adding some standout pieces to your room. For example, you could add a large, unique piece of art into your bedroom or living room. You could also buy some plants and have them placed around the room. Add in décor items that will draw your attention and give the room some fresh life. Here are some unique décor ideas to help get you started.

Don’t Settle for a Boring Room

If you find yourself bored with the room you are in, spend some time changing it. A few simple changes, like a new piece of furniture or a fresh coat of paint, can go a long way. Try out different things until you end up with a room that has some life to it and gives you a sense of joy when you’re in it.
