Create a Focal Point

Every room needs to have a focal point. Your focal point can be anything eye-catching that establishes visual dominance so your room doesn’t look cluttered. Usually, the focal point in a bedroom is the bed. You can boost this by adding decorative items such as cushions or throws on top of the bed.

Instead of using your bed as the focal point in a room, you can create an engaging atmosphere with items on either side. You'll be able to take advantage of natural light flooding through windows and also add some colour by displaying plants or flowers!

Instead of using your bed as a focal point, you can use your window. You can do this by decorating your windowsill and taking advantage of the natural light that will be flooding in through the windows.

Or instead of having your bed and window fighting for attention, you could place your bed in front of the window so the two items blend together, creating one big focal point. Alternatively, you can use neutral colours to make either the window or bed blend into the background leaving the limelight for the other items.

If you want to have more than one focal point in your room, then don't put the bed and window against each other. Instead, use neutral colours for both items so they blend into their surroundings while still receiving attention from all angles.

Colour Scheme

One of the most important things to consider when decorating your bedroom is the colour scheme. Choosing the right paint colours can really help set the tone for the room. If you're looking for a relaxing and calming atmosphere, opt for cool shades like blue or green. If you're after a more vibrant and energising feel, go with warmer colours like red or orange.

The Ceiling

When decorating the ceiling is often forgotten about. Whenever you enter your room you see the ceiling and when you’re in bed you at least get a glance of it. An easy way to add life to your room is to paint it with a subtle colour. This helps lower the ceiling visually while creating a comfortable and intimate atmosphere.

Use Layers

Layers are a wonderful way to add a sense of cosiness and extra dimension to your room. A beautiful area rug with an interesting pattern and soft shaggy rug on top can help you do just that! The stylish design of the area rug will act as your base layer while the shaggy rug adds comfort underfoot for when it's time to get up from bed in the morning or go out into chilly weather outside - both adding their own unique touch at different times during the day which makes any scene more colourful than before.

Personalisation

Don't forget about accessories! Bedroom décor is all about personalisation, so make sure you add some touches that reflect your own style. From artwork and rugs to throws and cushions, there are multiple ways to add personality to your bedroom. So, get creative and have fun with it!

The Furniture

Furniture is an important part of any home. It's not just about style and comfort, but also functionality! The bedroom should be both comfortable enough for you to relax in peace and stylish enough so that your space feels like its own personal sanctuary. It's also important to choose pieces that fit. Bedroom furniture should be scaled to the size of the room, so it doesn't feel cramped or overcrowded.

Soft Furnishings

Soft furnishings are great for your bedroom. They are an effortless way to add an extra layer of warmth and comfort. Try getting a throw that you can use as a decorative piece for your bed or as a blanket for those colder winter nights. Or you could get a soft shaggy rug that will sit comfortably under your foot and add a layer of texture to your room. Some extra cushions are an amazing way to make your room more comfortable than it already is.

Soft furnishings are perfect for your bedroom. They can be used as an extra layer of warmth and comfort if used correctly! A throw could act both ways – it could be used as a decorative piece that you drape across your bed or it could be used as a blanket to add some warmth on those colder nights. You could also try getting a shaggy rug that will sit comfortably underfoot adding texture to the space around them.

Hang Mirrors

Mirrors are one of the most underrated features you can add to your bedroom. They have practical functions as well as aesthetic.

Placing a mirror near a light source greatly improves the visibility in a room since more light is reflected around the room. Placing a mirror opposite a window is a great way to improve natural light in a room as well as reflect the outdoors into your room which creates the illusion of having a bigger room.     

Curtains & Blinds

Understandably, you want your curtains and blinds to do two things: block light at night-time so it’s comfortable for sleeping; but also allow as much natural sunlight during the day. Finding a curtain that suits both needs is a tricky balance to find.

Blackout curtains can be expensive so if you don’t want to spend that much, I recommend getting a light, soft curtain as well as a blackout blind that you can close at night. This way you get the sleek look of airy curtains and the useful effects of the blackout blinds.
