5 SIMPLE Tips on how to decorate your bedroom!

The bedroom is the room in your home that should radiate tranquility, relaxing vibes and help you wind down after a busy day. When thinking about the interior design of this room, certain tricks can help. If you want to know how to decorate your bedroom without having to splurge a lot of money, these are the five tips that will give you a head start.

Choose a Soothing Paint Color

Your bedroom is your sanctuary! That’s why it should release relaxing and comfy vibes. What better way to do that than with a fresh coat of paint? Picking a subtle, soothing hue [1] is the best thing you can do for this room.

The color scheme you’ll pick shouldn’t make you feel overwhelmed; instead, the bedroom should transform into your own getaway. Also, if your walls have any irregularities, you won’t be able to notice them if they are painted in brighter hues. Some of the shades that you should add to your list are sky blue, blush, all nude tones, grey, white, light green, light yellow, lilac, and more.

Bold colors are not the best choice for a bedroom because the atmosphere should be calming and relaxing. You can still feel free to add a pop of color, but do that using accessories, pillows, duvet covers, art, and more. Dark paint is also trickier to pull off, and it can turn out to be blotchy during daylight, it can make the room appear smaller and be too hard on the eyes.

If you still want a bold or darker color for your walls, don’t overdo it. Pick a single wall that you’ll paint in a vibrant hue, and leave the rest of the walls neutral. This can be the wall that is exposed directly to sunlight, in order to give a special charm to the room.

Pick the Right Size Furniture

You don’t want to buy furniture that doesn’t fit the size of the room. The bedroom should be functional and never cluttered. The more you add to a room, the more impractical it can become. That’s why you should always pick furniture that works well with the dimensions of the room [2].

Even if you’re into minimalist décor, the bedroom should still feature all of the essential pieces of furniture. So, before you start decorating, write down a list of everything that you’ll need and try making sketches of where items will be placed. Many online sites can help you design the interior easily.

Start with the bed. This is the most essential piece of furniture in the bedroom. It should be big enough for you, comfortable, and also fit the size of the room. You don’t want a bed that’s too big, even if it looks more appealing because it can feel overwhelming in a smaller space. Yes, well-designed pieces are everyone’s must-have, but what if it limits the movement in the bedroom? You should always think from a practical standpoint first. It will be the room’s focal point, so make sure that it checks all the requirements.

Also, each piece of furniture has a visual weight [3]. If you see a bed with a heavy headboard and a massive frame, it instantly looks heavier, bigger, and feels like it will take more space compared to a bed with the same size but a simple, sleek frame.

Upgrade Your Pillows and Bedding

The pillows, bedding, and mattress have a massive role in the quality of your sleep. That’s why you should think about upgrading them when decorating the room.

The bedding can also be used in the decorating process of the bedroom. Opt for printed sheets that will further elevate the décor or a color that stands out. If your wall’s colors are subtle and the furniture is minimalistic, bedding is the best way to add a pop of color.

Next, think about the sheet material. It should be something durable, luxurious with a print that amps up the room to a new level. Some of the most popular options are silk, microfiber, bamboo, cotton, and more.

When it comes to pillows, you need to be very selective for both sleeping and throw pillows. The first one is responsible for your good night’s sleep and can either make it or break it. Your sleep pillow should support your back, neck, shoulders, spine and give you comfort while you’re sleeping. If your body is not properly supported, you might experience pains and aches.

These days there are so many choices that it’s getting so hard to choose the best one for you. You will need to do in-depth research, read reviews, and consider your sleeping position. Also, the pillow fabric has a considerable role in the choice. Some people are hot sleepers and require one that will keep them cold. Just do your research and figure out which type will be the best option. Don’t forget to find a pillowcase in fabric, print, and material that fits both your needs and works well with the rest of the interior design.

Throw pillows, on the other hand, are one of the prettiest accessories to use in a bedroom. If you love your bed to be as comfy and as soft as it gets when you’re not sleeping, this is what you need. They come in thousands of shapes, forms, colors, and prints and will be a fantastic addition to any bed. Whenever you feel like the bedroom looks dull, get creative with the throw pillows, duvet, and bedding.

Include Several Lighting Options

There’s nothing better than a well-lit room. Waking up to good natural light can boost your productivity, but what happens once the sun’s gone? You should make sure that your bedroom features great lighting for several different reasons. At the same time, you need to include several other lighting options [4], including the main light, dimming lights, floor lamps, wall lamps, bedside lamps, depending on your needs.

One of the reasons why you need this tip is definitely functionality, especially if you spend a lot of time in the bedroom. For example, if you love reading at night, it’s a smart idea to have a reading light right next to your bed.

Dimmable lights are another clever idea because you’ll be able to tone down the light right before going to bed. This will deliver those relaxing vibes you need to fall asleep faster and have a good night’s sleep. One of the latest lighting trends is installing lamps with a red light that can stimulate melanin and help you fall asleep faster.

Another reason is the ambiance. The whole idea behind having great bedroom lighting is that you can adapt the fixtures and the light to how you feel and what you need. This is a room that should radiate with comfort, and the lighting should follow.

Let Your Bedroom Be Your Getaway

As we mentioned before, your bedroom should be the comfiest room in the house and your getaway where you can disconnect from the rest of the world. That’s why it’s so important to give it a personal touch when you’re decorating.

There are so many ways to do it, starting with items that are meaningful. It can be photos, souvenirs from your travels, candles that you love, and more. Surround yourself with soothing scents that will relieve the stress and will promote sleep.

A comfy armchair with an ottoman in the corner of your bedroom, next to a bookshelf, can now become your favorite spot in the room where you’ll read and rest after a long day.

A gorgeous rug in the middle of the room, with a cool print, will make the room comfier and feel more inviting. If you have any paintings that you made or drawings together with your kids, nieces, and nephews, feel free to put them up on the walls.


If you’ve been wondering how to decorate your bedroom, these five tips are a great way to start. They will not cost you a fortune, plus these are things that you can do yourself. Purchasing quality bedding and pillows in gorgeous prints, painting the walls in calming tones, finding furniture with the right size, installing the proper lighting, and adding your personal touch will transform the bedroom into your getaway. You will want to spend more and more time there, and it will become your favorite room.
