Walls should be a very light color
Choose furniture that goes with your theme
- Dresser / vanity
- Bedside table
- Study table / workstation
You can also choose like a piece that will stand out than the rest of the stuff in your room, like maybe a furry pink chair, or anything with the same concept. To go with your new kawaii furniture, a cute fur carpet or some kawaii printed rug would also be a great addition.
Choose the cutest beddings
Now it's time for your cozy bed to have a make over. Pick out the cutest, most eye catching bed covers you can find but make sure it matches your color scheme or theme. This is the biggest centerpiece of your kawaii room so this has to be one of the best pieces inside.
Consider getting a wallpaper
If you don't want really plain walls, pick out a wallpaper that would go with your chosen theme, maybe flower patterns or stars or maybe hearts, it really depends on your preference. Choose one that you think would suit best for the overall look you want to achieve at the end.
Not in the mood to stick whole wallpapers to your room, but you want your walls to have that little pop? Try wall decors or stickers and you'll see the big difference this would make. You can also do personalized name stickers for your wall as well for more added kawaii and wow factor.
Just how kawaii is that?
Small kawaii stickers could also go with your furniture. You can stick them all around your dresser or maybe your bookshelves, even at the sides of your mirror. How about your wardrobe? Pretty much anywhere. You can arrange them how you like them until you're satisfied if it's already kawaii enough for your eyes.
Also, framed artworks or kawaii photos of characters is also a plus, or kawaii picture frames for your personal photos.
Choosing pillows and plushies
Decorating your room with tons of plushies is a must. Nothing can go wrong with having loads of cuddly, kawaii stuffed toys as companions. These soft cuties are not only very kawaii to look at, they are also good sleeping mates where you can cuddle and hug them all night long, letting you have a nice, long sleep.
Seriously, these kawaii baby plushies are just waiting for you to toss them around your newly kawaii-fied bedroom. You can arrange them along the bed or put up a "plushie shrine" so they can be in one place.
Add kawaii curtains
Don't ever, ever forget these. Choosing the best type of curtains is very important as well. Sheer fabric curtains work best in any kawaii room, but is not necessary though.
Whether they are printed or not, that's up to you. This would go really well with the last thing on our list, but if you can't find the sheer kind, you can just go for other options as long as it fits everything else.
Add fairy lights
Last but not the least, fairy lights. These are the ultimate must haves and the finishing touch for your now kawaii-fied room.
You can never go wrong with putting up these gorgeous lights in your room, just do it the way you want it and get the final results that you're waiting for.
You've done everything, then you go ahead and stand back to look at your masterpiece. Your eyes widen simply because you're completely speechless at what you've achieved. You praise yourself for a job well done and immediately captures your new room on camera and share it with everyone.
