Your bedroom is your own personal sanctuary where you begin and end each day, so it’s essential to feel at ease when you’re there. The ideal bedroom will help you relax and get a restful night’s sleep while also boosting your mood and preparing you to start the next day on the right foot.
Whether you’re settling into a new home or are giving your current bedroom a refresh, there are a few key areas to focus on when decorating your space. As you spruce up your space, follow these decorating tips to help your bedroom reach its full potential.
1. Stick to Soft Colors
Soft shades like lavender, charcoal gray, and slate blue are soothing. Soft colors promote relaxation and sleep, making them great colors to incorporate into your bedroom. Consider painting your walls, or even just one of them, soft color to help you relax while you’re in your bedroom.
You can paint one accent wall or keep your walls a neutral color and choose soft-colored bedding. Whatever you decide, avoid bold primary colors and opt for a more gentle or monochromatic color scheme. If you have a favorite color, incorporate that color throughout your bedroom in its softest shade.
Make a big statement. Wall murals are the ideal way to turn a blank wall into a showcase for your unique style. Simply line up the panels, peel and stick to reveal your stunning design. Plus, they’re removable and leave no sticky residue behind. Wall murals available in two floor-to-ceiling sizes.More Wall Mural Styles >>
2. Make Corners Cozy
A room with too much empty space can look sterile and uninviting. To boost your bedroom’s coziness factor, decorate every nook and cranny. That doesn’t mean you have to go overboard with decorations, but you should try to fill each space with something interesting that gives off a comforting feeling.
Consider adding a chair and ottoman in one corner and a reading nook in another. Creating comfort in all corners of your room will make the space more dynamic and warm.
Our blackout window curtains are a denser alternative to your standard window curtain, blocking out most light and proudly featuring your favorite designs. Whether you live in a busy apartment or a peaceful neighborhood, it’s always nice to have the option to shut out the sun and relax inside by the candlelight. Available in either single or double panel options. A double panel features the same design on both panels. The bottom edge of curtain includes a 2″ pocket that can be used as a hanging pocket, but beware that the artwork will be upside down for any non-patterned designs.More Blackout Curtain Styles >>
3. Layer Lighting
Direct overhead lighting can actually make your space feel smaller and look unflattering. Instead of relying only on your overhead light or side table lamp, including a variety of different lighting sources throughout your bedroom. Choose light sources like standing lamps, string lights, and sconces, or utilize natural light sources like sweeping windows and skylights.
Not only will layering your lighting make your space look more visually interesting, but it will also give it a warm and inviting atmosphere, which will help you relax.

Individually cut and sewn by hand, each pillow features a double-sided print and is finished with a concealed zipper and faux down insert.

4. Add a Comfortable Rug
If your bedroom doesn’t have carpeting already, adding a rug or two will make the space feel much more comfortable. But even if you do have carpet in your bedroom, a nice rug will still add interest and personality to your space.
The great thing about rugs is that they come in a wide variety of sizes, colors, and patterns, so you can easily find one that fits your space and your own personal style. Choose a rug with a high pile if you’re looking for something extra soft and comfortable.
Express your style all over your home with a feature-worthy rug. They’re made from a woven, polyester chenille for a soft and textured look. Plus, choosing from our wide array of designs, you’re sure to find just the rug to match your decor. Rugs are one of the best, attention-grabbing pieces to design a room around. Use the colors within the rug to help choose art prints, furniture fabric and accent pillows.<< More Rug Styles >>
5. Cover Windows with Beautiful Curtains
Covering your window will allow you to add even more texture, color, and pattern to your bedroom. If you’re going for a more relaxing look, consider sheer curtains that filter natural light. For deep sleep, opt for blackout curtains (they don’t have to be black). You could even combine the two to switch from day to night seamlessly.
To make your bedroom look bigger and better, keep your curtains long, no matter how big your windows are. But hem them so that they aren’t spilling onto the floor. This simple decorating trick can make any space look big, inviting, and elegant.
Our floor cushions are the super comfy and style-forward option for outdoor seating. They’re UV coated to protect against fading and water resistant so you can avoid scrambling to bring them inside whenever there’s a touch of weather. Grab a few to have on hand whenever seating is hard to come by or for a fun option for kids to use out in the yard.More Floor Cushion Styles >>
6. Prioritize Storage
The best way to create a soothing space is to keep it clean and tidy. Make sure you are utilizing all the storage solutions possible in your bedroom so that everything has its place and you can eliminate clutter.
If your bedroom is cluttered, you’ll feel stressed as you’re falling asleep. Make sure you have a dresser, an organized closet, and other storage solutions in place to keep your clothes off of the floor and your belongings in the right spots.
Some storage pieces, like shelves, can double as decorative pieces as well. So adding storage to your space doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style. Choose storage solutions that feel like you.

7. Add Greenery
Studies have shown that indoor plants have several health benefits, including improving your mood and lowering stress. Some plants can even enhance indoor air quality. Add one or a few to your bedroom to reap the benefits. Bonus—they’ll brighten up your shelves in a heartbeat.
If you don’t have a green thumb, you’re not out of luck. Consider purchasing a convincing faux plant for decorative purposes. It won’t be living, so you won’t need to water it or make sure it’s getting enough sunlight.
Cozy up with our unbelievably soft throw blankets. Crafted with sherpa fleece, these blankets actually get softer the more times you wash them.

8. Incorporate Different Textures
Textures will give your bedroom depth and make it more visually and physically interesting. Varying textures can also make your space feel bigger by adding dimension.
Consider mixing materials, incorporating things like stone or wood in your furniture or on your walls. Combining rugs, plants, blankets, and curtains can also increase the variety of textures in your space.
Our floor pillows are the perfect pick for seating in a pinch. They’re overstuffed and firm to never lose their shape and the high-quality print makes sure the design stays crisp and colorful. Available in round or square, with two size options.<< More Floor Pillow Styles >>
9. Hang Art You Love
There’s no better statement piece than a beautiful piece of art. You can either make a piece yourself or purchase one from your favorite artist. To make your space feel more like your own, choose art that really resonates with you and your personality. If you’re all about words, make a print of your favorite quote. Outdoor enthusiasts may choose to add a sweeping landscape painting.
Whatever art you choose, make sure it’s relatively relaxing and not too exciting. Lively family photos belong in the living room, not in your personal sanctuary of a bedroom.
10. Use Luxurious Bedding
Your bedroom should be a place of comfort and relation. The best way to accomplish that is by making your bed as inviting as possible. After all, the bed is the focal point of the bedroom.
Invest in bedding that’s comfortable and luxurious. Having bedding that you love will get you excited to jump into bed at the end of the day and encourage you to get a good night’s rest.
