Bedrooms are perhaps one of the most private spaces in any home. As such, they should serve as place for you to relax, unwind and recharge after a long day at work or school.
Many people find their bedrooms to be anything but relaxing and rejuvenating spaces. Instead, they feel like cramped storage spaces that make it impossible to find anything when it’s time to get ready for the day. We have some helpful tips on getting started if you’re struggling with how to style your perfect bedroom to serve its intended purpose. Check out these 5 ideas that will help you transform your space into exactly what you need it to be:
Pay attention to how you use your bedroom for optimal placement
One of the most important things to consider when styling your perfect bedroom is where you’ll be using this room. If you’re sharing a bedroom with a partner, it’s essential to remember how each person uses their side of the room. If you work from home, you’ll likely spend a lot of time in your bedroom. In this case, you might choose a space accommodating a desk or laptop table. If you have a baby in your bedroom, making space for nursery furniture is a must.
Look at how you move around your bedroom, pay attention to the flow of your furniture and style it to accommodate your usage and the room’s shape for optimal placement.
Create a cosy corner to relax
Your bedroom is the perfect place to create a cosy corner where you can relax after a long day. Creating a spot where you can unwind is even more critical if you have young children who are in and out of your bedroom or if you have a bedroom that doubles as a home office. If you have the space, you may want to consider opting for a full-size sofa to create an extra relaxation space. If you don’t have the extra space, consider investing in a mini sofa that can be tucked away when not in use. You can also try adding a bean bag or two to your corner for a more casual look. You may also want to add a small bookshelf or magazine rack to store your favourite reads and magazines along with some artwork, lighting and cushions for increased comfort.

Stick to one colour palette
The colour palette you choose to paint your bedroom walls will affect how you feel in your room. Opting for a more relaxed colour palette may help you unwind, while a more vibrant palette may be better suited to a teenager’s room. When choosing a colour palette for your perfect bedroom, remember that this will be different for everyone, and you can play around with other shades to create your ideal style. Mix brighter shades as an accent wall with more muted colours to even the balance, or leave your bold colours to your accessories and bedding for that accent pop!
Invest in high-quality bedding
Your bedding is perhaps your most important purchase for your bedroom. It’s the one item that will be in constant use, making it the perfect place to invest in high-quality bedding. When shopping for bedding, keep in mind the look you want to achieve in your bedroom. You’ll want to choose bedding that compliments the overall look and feel you want to accomplish in your room.
If you are aiming for that luxurious hotel vibe, then choosing a high thread count will give you the soft, comfortable feel you are aiming for and the better the quality, the longer the bedding will last.
Add lighting and mirrors to increase light
Keep light fixtures near the centre of the ceiling and avoid placing light fixtures directly above your bed. You may also want to add a few mirrors to increase your space’s light. A large mirror directly opposite your window will help reflect light into the room and make it feel lighter and brighter. You may also want to consider adding a small mirror to the top of your nightstand or add mirrored wardrobes to maximise the functionality and reduce how many accessories you introduce to your room for a more minimalist feel.
Styling your bedroom is personal and will mean different things to different people. For example, some people will love the idea of waking up in a vibrant room that energises them from the moment they open their eyes; others will prefer a calmer, more relaxing vibe to encourage sleep and help them unwind. However you choose to design your room, following these tips can help you to make the most of the space.
