Home is where the heart is, but your bedroom is your most personal space. At the end of a long, tiring day, there’s nothing better than sinking into your bed and snuggling under the covers. But how many of us give our bedrooms the attention they deserve? We try to keep our living rooms, kitchens and other common areas neat and tidy while our bedrooms are left forgotten. However, there’s so much you can do to amp up your bedroom to reflect your style and personality. Here are some bedroom decorating ideas that will make a dramatic difference to your space.
You may have lived all your life using just a bed sheet for your mattress and a top sheet or comforter for when it gets cold. But it’s now time to change your old ways. Your bed is the most important piece of furniture in the room, so it should be the main focal point. Layering is key to a beautiful bed that you just want to sink into. Get yourself some throws, extra pillows, bed runners and statement pillows, to make your bed look more comfortable and inviting. You could even opt for a memory foam mattress to ensure you always get a good night’s sleep. Layering your bedding is one of the best DIY décor ideas that can enhance the beauty of your room.
If your bedroom receives a lot of natural sunlight, consider yourself lucky. For the rest of us, there’s always room to play around with different lighting options. Don’t stick to the regular bulbs and tube lights that you’re used to. Instead, switch things up with some colour changing LED light bulbs. Depending on the make, these bulbs can give you different light settings all connected to the same switch. For a more whimsical feel, you can string fairy lights along your headboard or curtain rods. A chic lamp on your bedside table doesn’t just add personality to a room, but it’s also perfect for when you want to read at night. If you have a large bedroom, you can even hang a chandelier right in the centre to give your room a luxurious look and feel.
Play around with colours and textures
By adding colour and texture, you can give your room dimension and character. A leather headboard or reversible sequin cushions can add a unique design element to your room. Instead of using regular blankets, you can choose a comforter that is quilted, or has a weave design of some sort. You can also make use of some textured paint or wallpaper for your walls to make your bedroom feel more cosy. If you are unsure about bold walls, you can leave the rest of your walls blank and have a single focal wall to create a statement. It’s important that you don’t go overboard and clutter your room so exercise some restraint and stick to only a few textured elements.
Use a theme
You might consider using a theme while decorating your kids’ bedroom, but a lot of adults shy away from using a decorative theme in their own. There are several themes you could use that will add character and flair to your bedroom. If you’d prefer something subtle go for a minimalist theme, with a subdued colour palette and chic furniture. You could also choose a classy vintage-themed bedroom complete with a four-poster bed, dark wooden furniture and moody hues. With endless colour palettes for you to explore, you can find a theme for your bedroom that best reflects your personality.
Decorate with artwork or photos
Instead of using expensive artwork, you can decorate your bedroom with a DIY photo gallery wall. Family pictures are a lot more personal and affordable than artwork Hang these pictures of your friends and family at the head of your bed, or use a separate wall as your gallery. If you draw or paint, you can frame your best pieces and put your artwork up on display for the world to see. If you aren’t an artist, don’t worry. You can just as easily collect artwork or elegant prints of painting and photographs to spruce up your space.
Organise and declutter
A lot of people are guilty of dumping extra clothes on their bed or a chair in the corner. But a cluttered bedroom can come in the way of the serenity a bedroom is supposed to provide. Innovative storage options can help solve your problem and also add extra decor elements to your room. You can get a storage chest that fits the theme or colour scheme of your bedroom and also doubles as a table. If you are short on floorspace, you can install floating shelves along your walls for your books and knick knacks. Not only does organising your room make it your room look cleaner, but it also gives you peace of mind.
Use indoor plants
If you have a green thumb, breathe some life into your bedroom with a few indoor plants. Ornamental plants like bonsai and baby bamboo will give your room a Zen feel. Flower arrangements immediately add colour and beauty to your room. Whether you place them on your nightstand, windowsill or vanity, they’re always lovely to wake up to. Another recent trend is a plant wall or a vertical garden. Place plants in little shelves along your wall to completely or partially cover it. This is an excellent way to revamp your bedroom and make your home eco-friendly.
