There鈥檚 only so many ways you can rearrange your bedroom furniture before you鈥檝e come full circle and done irreparable damage to your relationship with your downstairs neighbors. Call it what it is: You鈥檙e in a bedroom rut. We have a few easy and affordable ideas from the B+C Shop to pull you out of it, but before we get down to brass tacks, let鈥檚 start with what seems like an overly-simple question: What is the primary function of your bedroom?

Once you have your answer, you can start to see how your current setup is (or isn鈥檛) serving that need, and where it can improve. A鈥檌ght, remodelistas: You now have permission to pick up your shopping baskets.

1. Start with the walls

8.5_x_11_hustle_blush_gold

Hustle, Darling Print ($17): As we鈥檙e all elbowing our way into big cities, apartments are getting tinier by the second, meaning your room might also be your home office. If that鈥檚 the case, your room is a place where you go for motivation and inspiration. This print is perfect for hanging by your workspace as the next best thing to a fist bump.

Blink Print ($55): If you鈥檙e one to compartmentalize your life, you鈥檙e probably into the idea of the bedroom being just that: the place where you go to get some shut-eye. With its fun, vibrant colors, this print conveys that message while being anything but sleepy.

SWELL001_018

King + Queen Art Print ($35): When sharing a room with your SO, you look for pieces that set the mood for romance and strike a balance between both of your styles. These prints do just that and can also be hung to claim dibs on your side of the bed.

TWAGD_Detail2

Today Was a Good Day ($30): For some, the room is a place to decompress from the pressures of the outside world, to journal and do your best thinking. This print sets that positive outlook that makes for a better tomorrow too.

2.聽Rethink lighting

Copper Wire Lights ($31): Copper is beloved for its brightness and warmth, and that鈥檚 only amplified by the twinkle lights woven into this strand. To instantly create an inviting glow in your room, drape this subtle strand in your curtains or on top of your dresser.

DUO001_48432

String Ball Light Strand ($38): For a light source that鈥檚 more of a focal point, opt for this strand that鈥檚 reminiscent of Chinese lanterns. Lights on or off, they鈥檒l bring an inviting burst of color to un-blah your space.

3. Utilize vertical space

Sand Art Terrarium Kit ($29): Shelf and windowsill space is prime real estate, so a best practice for you small apartment owners is to dangle your decor whenever possible. This hanging terrarium will bring some literal life to that 鈥渂lah鈥 corner.

Bstrong_Purple_Table_1000x1000

Bstrong Travel Hook ($25): Hang your purse, bike helmet or scarves up and out of sight in your closet! (If you can resist the temptation to throw them all on the floor when you get home, that is.)

4. Find unconventional uses for what聽you already have

BRASS2

Brass Plant Mister ($24): It鈥檚 a plant mister, yes, but it would be a crime against nature to use this beautiful piece as only that. Same goes for other pretty tools too! When it鈥檚 off-duty, we鈥檙e thinking a cool bookend or paperweight.

5. Rethink your color palette
