Bedroom Decorating Ideas: Easily Achieve the Bedroom of Your Dreams 

Decorating a bedroom can be difficult because it’s not the focal point of the house, like the living room, and it requires certain pieces of furniture that can be hard to fit. Both large bedrooms and small bedrooms can present their own set of challenges that can be difficult to overcome. We’ve compiled a list of bedroom decorating ideas, so that you can take simple steps to get the ideal look for your bedroom.  

Choose Furniture That Fits 

Having the wrong-sized furniture for your space can instantly make a small room look even smaller or a big room look sparse. As a rule of thumb, try to have at least three feet between the bed and side walls or large furniture, like a dresser, and at least two feet between the bed and small furniture, like side tables.  

It’s important to buy furniture suited for the room it’s going in. If your bedroom is small, don’t buy large, heavy furniture because it will make the bedroom look even smaller. If your bedroom has tall ceilings, a tall headboard and dresser can help take up wall space and prevent it from looking empty. If you have a large bedroom with a lot of extra space, try to fill it by adding accessory furniture like a chair, ottoman or a bench at the end of the bed.  

Don’t Forget the Windows  

Nothing completes a room better than perfectly framing a window with curtains. To start, decide what style curtain fits the personality of your room; you can go with short or long curtain panels, panels with a valance or even café style curtains.  

Once you’ve settled on a style, you need to figure out a color and pattern. Geometric, floral and solid-color curtains are all very popular, but if you aren’t into any of these, you can always go with a sheer curtain in a neutral color. This allows you to still frame your window, but won’t draw much attention due to its subtly.  

Express Yourself with Linens 

Your bed is the focal point of your bedroom, which makes it the best place to express your personality through your décor. You can mix textures, patterns and colors to create a unique space that captures everyone’s eye. Not too keen on adding a lot of color? You can keep your linens neutral and add temporary pops of color by adding accessories like this fleece blanket at By doing this, you can add the color when you’re in the mood and take it away when you want to stay neutral. It also allows you to adjust your color scheme to the season by adding pastel colors in the spring and darker colors in the fall and winter.   

Your bed is where you spend the most time in your bedroom, so invest in some high-quality sheets to not only treat yourself, but to elevate the look of your room. Dump the sheets that aren’t 100% cotton or less than 350 thread count, and go for sheets that make you feel like you’re on a luxurious vacation night after night.  

Declutter with Ample Storage 

Having a cluttered room can be a huge eye soar and distracting, particularly for smaller bedrooms. Eliminate this issue by ensuring you have ample storage and are utilizing all the possible storage spaces in your bedroom. Buy nightstands that have drawers and keep any excess clutter that’s usually on top of the nightstands in the drawers.  

One of the most under-utilized storage areas in the bedroom is underneath the bed. Take all the out-of-season clothes out of your closet and drawers to free up some space. You can use vacuum-sealed storage bags to make them compact, and still have room for small storage boxes that you can hide things that you don’t use every day and can be put away.  

Incorporate Patterns and Texture 

Patterns and texture can take a room from looking bland to striking in an instant. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns and textures as it is very easy to pull everything together to look cohesive. Curtains are an easy place to add some pattern and texture because they aren’t the focal point of your bedroom, but they are easily seen. You can also add accessories to add some flair to your décor. For example, adding picture frames or paintings to the wall can easily add a pop of design to a neutral room. You can also add something like a faux fur blanket to the bed to add a texture to your top-of-bed décor.  

You don’t have the break the bank or go out of your comfort zone when it comes to decorating your bedroom. Adding small, subtle touches can go a long way and really pull the entire room together. Follow the tips above and you’ll have the bedroom of your dreams in no time.
