Here are some tips and rules to remember when you plan to decorate your bedroom.

Indulge in Beautiful Linens

There’s nothing that adds comfort to a bedroom like sumptuous linens and beddings. So, make sure to outfit your personal space with gorgeous and luxurious fabrics- buy sheets that are 100 percent cotton or linen with high thread counts. Also, add other sensual feeling fabrics through the room with a beautiful bed runner on your king-sized bed, a soft cashmere throw on the arm of a reading chair, table runner on the small coffee table, cover the walls with textured coverings, hang silk draperies, or place plush floor coverings.

Choose Subtle Palette

Don’t go for indulging in bold primary colors, instead choose soothing shades and a comforting palette of monochromatic tones. Generally, the hues of blue, lavender, or green are considered calm and gentle but you can also go for rich jewel-toned hues such as toasty browns, deep pomegranate. If your favorite color does not belong to this palette, go for using their toned-down versions to set the mood of coziness, for example, select mauve color instead of eggplant, or shade of pumpkin instead of tangerine.

Don’t Forget the Ceiling

Consider the ceiling as the fifth wall in the bedroom. Add a subtle pattern or soft color to enhance its look. Or, paint it with a slightly lighter version of the wall color, it will help to visually lower the height and add a feeling of comfort and intimacy.

You can wallpaper the ceiling or go on adding architectural elements in the form of beams or moldings. Go for buying canopy or tented bed with a dressing that hangs from the ceiling to envelop the space in sensuality and warmth while adding texture, and color to the ceiling.

For a more luxurious touch, you can also add a molded medallion and chandelier of crystal.

Keep the Decor Simple

Regardless of the style of decoration you choose, make sure your bedroom looks cozy, sophisticated, and elegant. Leave enough space between bed, sidewalls, and pieces of furniture for ease of movement.

Don’t overdo and furnish your bedroom with only what you need. A bed, a bedside table or two, a dresser, a chest of drawers and a chair are just enough.

Also, try to keep the accessories to a minimum. Choose a beautiful piece of art, or hang some family photos but don’t overwhelm the space.

Even while accessorizing the furniture, follow a minimalist approach, keep it simple yet graceful, for example, a knitted table runner on the coffee table would do the magic.

Buy the Right Size Furniture

While buying the furniture for your bedroom, measure the space properly to get furniture that perfectly fits the room it lives. Don’t buy a heavy, large bed and dresser if you have a small bedroom.

If you are lucky to have a bedroom that is quite big, don’t buy furniture and accessories that are too small else it will look lost in the large room. Add a chair, coffee table, and ottoman or place a bench at the end of the bed.

Plan For Storage

To make the bedroom appear and calm, store things out of sight.

Choose a bedside table with drawers where you can stash away your books, reading glasses and other daily accessories. Or, use a headboard with built-in shelves or sliding panels.

For more storage, get a small dresser with drawers or use a trunk or a storage bench at the foot of the bed to store extra sheets, and pillows.

Place shallow storage boxes underneath the bed to store blanket and other night essentials hiding them with a gorgeous bed skirt.

Make A Private Nook

Make space for a an inspiring area full of positive vibes where you can sit and take a breath.

Build a cozy reading or lounging space with a comfortable chair and footstool at the end of your bed or in a corner. Or, create a window seat under the bedroom window to enjoy the beautiful view and the warm sunlight.

Dress The Windows

A beautifully dressed window is the best way to add color, pattern, texture, and elegance to a bedroom. Choose white shutters for a clean, crisp look, or hang blackout-lined curtains and blinds, if you are a light sleeper. Venetian blind is another great option to cover the windows adding a natural element to the bedroom.

However, if soft sheer curtains are what you love, make sure to combine opaque roller blinds that can be pulled down to maintain privacy and to block morning light.

Install Different Lighting

You would always enjoy the ‘layer’ of lighting created throughout your bedroom. Add ambient lighting to brighten up the whole room, small beautiful lamps for focus light to read your favorite book every night before sleeping,  and wall sconces for accent lighting to wash the walls in soft illumination.

Create A Real Getaway

Try to discipline yourself and keep the room decluttered- keep your cell phone, laptop, television, treadmill out, or workstation of the bedroom. Try to create a peaceful space to relax and renew. In fact, you will also love having a room dedicated to reading, sleeping, and lots of romance.

Final Words

Nothing feels better at the end of a long and tiring day to find a bed that truly invites you to lie down and relax. So, make sure to take a few minutes every morning to make your bed and organize the mess.

Tuck your clean sheet tightly around the mattress, and put your freshly ironed duvet on. Finally, smooth out all creases and top it with perfectly positioned shams, throw pillows, and finish with an elegant bed runner laid just-so at its foot. And your bed accessorized to perfection is ready with not a bit of mess in sight!
