    Clean up your room before you start. It is much easier to redo your room when everything is in place.
    • Washing down the walls and vacuuming away dust, cobwebs, and the dirt on the carpet helps.
    • Pick up everything and put it away. Find a spot for things that have no place, like on a shelf or in a drawer.
    • Make a pile of things you would like to get rid of. If they are in good condition, consider giving them to a charity or donating them to a thrift store. Otherwise, throw items away.

    Decide on how much money you are willing to spend. If it isn't a lot, you can make some inexpensive decorations yourself. (See step 4 for ideas) Also, try shopping for items at a thrift store, and keep your eye out at garage sales. Don't forget to decide whether or not you want a theme to your room. A theme keeps the room together, and can be colors, animals, or subjects. However, a theme is not necessary. If you do have a theme, try to get items to match it.
