3 Affordable things you’ll need to kickstart your room makeover

Jumping into the “quarantine trend” of the month is probably one of the things that kept people sane during years in lockdown. Aside from the DIY ube-cheese pandesal and Dalgona Coffee trends, room makeovers are part of my favorite things brought about by staying at home. Who could resist not redecorating their room after hundreds of aesthetically pleasing posts on Home Buddies via Facebook? After a year of Marie Kondo-ing at home, it only seems natural to start making our home-turned-work space more appealing to the eyes.

Since we cannot hire people to do the decorating for us, I took the liberty of exploring Shopee and ended up with three key items from Mini Home and IDA Wallpaper to kickstart our weekend DIY room makeover. I only listed three because these will already take up half a day or more:


Price: Php 128-130 (originally around Php 300)

Choosing a nice wallpaper for your room is one of the major decisions you’ll have to make before every makeover. The colors of your furniture, bedsheets, and rugs will have to complement what’s on your wall! I opted for yellow prints but the cream floral design was my second choice since I had a lot of cream and brown furniture (#TeamKahoy all the way).

Aside from sticking these on your wall, you can also use these wallpapers on furniture. I would recommend using glossy ones for cabinets, too!

Using sticker wallpapers are okay if you have lots of patience and an eye for detail. It can be challenging to measure walls and ensure that no bubbles are formed during the sticking process. All your hard work will be worth it after you see the results, though.

2. Matching Bed Sheet Set and Throw Plush Blanket

  • Bed Sheets: Php 139-159 (originally Php 630)
  • Throw Plush Blanket: Php 854 – 949 (originally around Php 3,000)

There are a lot of designs to choose from, but because I love the color pink, I got a comfy throw plush blanket and a matching black and white bedsheet with lines to complement the design. The items from Mini Home are super affordable during sale season so I highly recommend purchasing from this shop during monthly sale-lebrations.

3. Vinyl Floor Stickers

Price: Php 27 – 34 (originally Php 150)

If you want to change the tiles or wooden floor boards at home but you don’t have the budget for an overhaul, vinyl floor stickers would be helpful! However, take note that using stickers won’t be able to solve your problem if you want to cover huge cracks. That would require professional fixing!

Like wallpapers, the only challenge in sticking vinyl floor stickers would be the measurement part and ensuring that you stick everything in a straight line.

Both Mini Home and IDA Wallpaper are part of the Shopee 8.8 Mega Flash Sale happening today (August 8, 2021). Expect flash sales up to 90% off within the day! Plus, you still have time to apply the SPP2021FF88 voucher code (limited redemptions only), as well as free shipping vouchers ranging from Php 50 to Php 80. Flash Sales will continue to pour in starting 12mn, so better brace yourselves for awesome deals.

Home redecoration can be a personal DIY project; however, for home repair concerns, best to consult a professional!

Note: Before you jump in the room makeover trend, please ensure that you’re doing it for yourself and not just to impress other people, okay? It’s still better to prioritize things that can make us happy in the long run vs just getting in it for the #likes. Happy shopping and redecorating! 🙂
