Renovate Your Room Aesthetics During Home Quarantine

It’s been a month and days since the ECQ or Enhanced Community Quarantine implemented in different cities and provinces in the Philippines. It is hard for us to go out and hang out somewhere because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Each day has new cases reason that the government is really strict about the policy of encouraging everyone to stay at home, except for those who have quarantine pass and maintain social distance.

There are times that we got bored inside our home. Most people spend more time watching Netflix series, dancing over the Tiktok app, or taking a lot of Instagram stories. Meanwhile, it is a perfect opportunity for creative people to showcase their artistic skills while on home quarantine through making art. Art is not only for creative people but also for everyone. We can express our own creative juice in different ways like sketching, painting, digital art, calligraphy, and art decoration.

In this blog, I am going to share with you my current hobby during my home quarantine. Three weeks ago, I was able to change my room color into something raw because having white walls inside my room is kind of boring sometimes. So I researched a lot of room ideas over Pinterest and Instagram. I saw a lot of minimalist room design that perfect for small spaces – to maximize the space and atmosphere at less cost. I want also to make my room into a concrete artsy style. That’s why I choose the color gray as the main color palette inside my room.

Day 1 – I painted the half portion of my room into gray. I used latex paint, so it will dry faster.


Day 2 – I added a tile effect on the left wall corner to give a unique accent like an unfinished wall.


Day 3 – I added a metal frame at the right side corner to hang my favorite clothes and shoes. I also added a small table with an artificial plant, framed artworks, and a wooden basket with coffee table books.


Day 4 – I arranged the other side of the wall with my art books and Instax pictures. I added an abaca string to hang my Instax pictures to make it artsier.


Day 5 – I decluttered my working table. I kept that very important stuff on my working table like pens, notebooks, working pad, and mini speaker.
