7 Ways To Style Your Bedroom In The Cutest Possible Way

While modern and trendy design ideas often tell you that you need to have a sitting area, big closet or a king size bed in your bedroom, don’t forget that a bedroom’s main purpose is to be a place to rest and relax.

Here is a list of seven cute bedroom ideas and tips to help you create a bedroom that may be small in square area, but is totally trendy and stylish.

1.      Use Light and Bright Colors
The snow white color is a popular and practical choice for a small bedroom. It keeps the space from looking too tiny or boxed in. Using white or lighter colors makes you feel better and is perfect for bedrooms with no windows or the absence of large wall space.

2.      Put the Bed in the Corner
Most bedroom designs are having a bed at center of the wall. However, narrow floor plans and limited space call for a change.To maximize the used floor space, move your bed up against a wall or corner. It will help by making cozier atmosphere. You can also choose a two headboard system to create a finished, designer look to any bedroom.

3.      Use Big Mirrors
Mirrors could enlarge a small bedroom by creating the illusion of a bigger one. Put the mirror in a way that it will reflect the sunlight and make the room lighter and looking spacious.

Would you like to know what is the easiest way to incorporate a big mirror to your space? Find a body-length mirror and lean it up against the wall. No need to drill and make holes. Though, you’ll want to secure it somehow just for case.

4.      Add some storage under your bed
If you’re looking to buy a new bed, consider a bed with drawers underneath for extra storage. If space is limited and drawers are not an option, just put some baskets and bins under your bed. Wooden crates would do just fine.

5.      Add a Charming Wallpaper or Mural
Just because your bedroom is not big doesn’t mean it has to be boring. Add a bold wallpaper or mural to a focal wall, like your headboard wall.

Wallpaper tends to get a bad rep for making rooms look small and cluttered, but using it properly can make a big difference. Add a bold wallpaper pattern to a focal wall, like your headboard wall.

When selecting wallpaper, choose a large-scale pattern over a small, busy one.

6.      Install Floating shelves
The versatile floating shelf can work in many useful ways in a small bedroom. You can get some at your local store or even at IKEA. Here are some floating shelf small bedroom ideas:
-A replacement for the nightstand
-Home decoration
-Accessories display

7.      Create a Wall Niche
In newer construction, drywall is normally hollow and supported by vertical beams (studs) that are at least 16” apart. 

If your bed is set up on a non-exterior wall, use a stud finder to mark where your bed’s wood wall beams are and cut out an alcove. It could add a lot of style and also could be useful storage space for decorations.

Indoor Plants That Can Keep Pests Out of Your Home

Summer is the perfect season to go to the beach, go to picnics, or to bask in the sun’s majestic rays. However, this is also the season where pests are increasing in number.

Now, how can you prevent these pesky pests to reign in your household?

Whether you are on a beach in Palawan or your beautiful home in Horizon Terraces in Tagaytay Highlands, here are some indoor plants that you can use to drive these pests away from your home.


Basil is known for being delicious in salads and various food recipes with pork and chicken. Also, it is also used to improve the flavor of different vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers, and asparagus.

But did you know that basil is also an effective insect repellent? This is usually used to drive house flies and mosquitoes away - which makes it one of the indoor plants that you can use to keep pests away from your home.

Plant basil in a container and put them in places where your family usually relaxes and where you typically entertain your guests. This way, you’ll be able to ensure that your family and friends will be safe from any pest attacks. However, if you want to make sure that your whole house is free from pests, you can always make your insect repellent spray from fresh basil with these easy steps:

Ingredients needed:
     4-6 ounces of clean, fresh basil leaves
     Boiling water
     4 ounces of vodka

1.   Pour 4 ounces of boiling water to a container with the fresh basil leaves in it. Leave it for several hours.
2.   Remove the leaves then squeeze the leaves’ moisture into the mixture.
3.   Pour 4 ounces of vodka in the mixture. Refrigerate.
4.   Spray in areas where insects such as flies and mosquitoes usually hide.



Aside from being used as decor and as a fragrance to a particular place, lavenders are also used as a pest repellent. Its natural scent drives flies, mosquitoes, and other insects away.

One effective way to use it to keep pests away is to place tied bouquets of it inside your home. You can also plant your lavender plant to ensure that pests will not lurk in your house - both indoor and outdoor. In addition, you can use its flower extract as a mosquito and fly repellent.


Lemongrass, also known for its natural oil called citronella, is also an active pest repellent plant. This is an effective deterrent to flies and mosquitoes. Though it does not kill pests and insects, what it does is to deter them away and reduces its number. There are many citronella products that you can use to your homes such as candles and mosquito repellent sprays.


The fragrance that the mint has is one of the things that makes this as a pest repellent plant. Plant mint in a pot or directly to the ground and place it in areas wherein you want these pesky pests to go away. You can also mix mint’s natural oil to apple cider vinegar or vodka to make an insect repellent spray.

Key Takeaway 

These are some of the pest repellent plants that you can get for your home. Not only will it make your household pest free, hence, will also make your house clean and fresh while ensuring your family’s overall health.
