As the smallest room in the house and the one you probably spend the least time in, you might not instinctively think of your bedroom as a space that needs a lot of decoration. However, as we all know from spending time in our own bedrooms, that’s definitely not the case. Even if you don’t spend much time there, your bedroom is still an important room in your home. It’s the place where you sleep, rest and recuperate after a long day.
So it makes sense to give it some thought before moving on to other interior design projects. Whether you have just moved into a new place or are looking for ways to refresh and revitalize your bedroom space, adding some personal touches can make all the difference.
When you think of decorating a bedroom, you might immediately think of the bedding. This is an important element, of course, but it’s important not to get too bogged down with the sheets and duvet cover. Instead, think about other elements in the room that could do with a makeover. For example, you could paint the walls a bold color to really make the room pop. Or, you could apply wallpaper to the walls for an entirely different look and feel. If you want to make your room feel more homely, you can add a few pieces of decorative furniture such as a chest of drawers or a dressing table.
Wall art is a classic way of bringing a room together and is something you can do with any skill level. If you are not comfortable with freehand painting or wall-mounting a large piece, buying pre-made framed or unframed canvas art is an easy way to decorate a wall. Choose from landscapes, cityscapes, portraits, or abstract designs.
You can also try alternative methods, such as mounting posters or printing out and framing your Instagram photographs. Beyond this, you can use peel and stick removable wallpaper, designed to remove clearly from non-textured walls. You can also opt for alternative wall art like these DIY wall tapestries or these DIY wall decals if you want to add a little something extra to your room.
For a fresh, colorful look, you can paint the inside of your cupboards, drawers, and shelves a bold color like yellow, blue, or red. Alternatively, if you want to stick with the neutral tones that are so popular in bedrooms, you can purchase colorful baskets, cushions, rugs, and other decorative items. If you want to go a step further, you can paint the inside of your closet door or dresser drawer a bright, bold color to create a fun pop of color in the space.
If bold colors aren’t your thing, you can opt for a more subtle approach. Choose a warm and vibrant color like red or yellow and use it sparingly, perhaps in one throw pillow or an area rug. These pieces are easy to move around and change up from time to time, so you can change your look as often as you like. You can also bring a bit of color to your bed with a colorful bedspread or throw blanket. And remember, you don’t have to use just one color. You can go for a bright and vibrant color scheme if you like, like these examples.
Wall murals are an excellent way to give your room a fresh new look without having to paint the walls. Whether you want to create a tropical paradise, an underwater wonderland, or an urban cityscape, you can find a mural to match your decor. You can use these murals to cover up an ugly wall or add a splash of color to a boring room.
You can also use them to draw attention to a gorgeous feature like a fireplace or an architectural detail. You can opt for a DIY mural or hire a professional to create a mural for you. If you go the DIY route, be sure to follow the directions carefully, so your mural stays put. You don’t want to have to remove it later.
Bedroom decorating doesn’t have to be a big project. You can achieve a lot with a few small changes. Try out some of these tips for decorating your bedroom, and you’ll be well on your way to creating an inviting and relaxing space that you’ll love spending time in. From bold colors to tropical murals, there are lots of ways to bring your personality to this small space.
