This bedroom was pretty bland, with almost no décor or personality. The bones, however, are promising: Lots of windows and hardwood floors point toward good things to come.

Talk about impact. This bedroom from The Design Daredevil started off as a humdrum space and became a daring, glamorous showstopper. Painting your walls black makes a big style statement, while an animal-print rug adds a glam-factor. We love the candles in the fireplace—it helps add a soft glow to the room and brighten it up.

If you're going to go bold and paint your room a dark color like black, be sure you have enough light (either natural or via light fixtures) to balance it out.

This bedroom lacks color, texture, and visual interest. The open bookshelves are unkempt, and the clutter in the corner makes the room feel chaotic.

The power of wallpaper is undeniable. Here, designer Emily Henderson used a textured cream-and-gold pattern to upgrade drab walls while still maintaining a neutral and sophisticated color palette. The moss green and coral hues give the space an upbeat feel with a hint of retro flair.

This bedroom feels devoid of personality and life. Simplicity can be awesome and make a major impact, but not if the result is lifeless. Needless to say, this room was calling for a dramatic makeover.

This renter-friendly master bedroom makeover only includes elements that blogger Joanna Goddard could take with her on her next move. With the room kept white, the impact here comes from personality-packed pieces, like the tufted headboard and patterned pillows.

Walls in bold shades of burgundy, cobalt, and mustard can be pretty hard to work with, especially for a Scandinavian design aficionado.

Take one room in varying shades of mismatched jewel tones, add a fresh coat of white paint, and voilà: You have a clean slate for your Scandinavian dream bedroom. We love the cool gray color palette the blogger behind Avenue Lifestyle used, which is warmed up with natural wood accents.

Teetering piles of clothing and papers are never chic. Meanwhile, bare walls make the room seem forgotten and the dark paint makes it feel lifeless and drab.
