Decorating A Bedroom
Decorating a bedroom is extremely important in creating a space that you can relax and feel comfortable in.
Because everyone has their own personal style, the items or elements you incorporate into the bedrooms decor will
define the atmosphere of the room.
There are some very basic ways an individual can create a more pleasing bedroom environment. These decorating
ideas for bedrooms are a great place to start exploring new ways for you to create a more appealing interior.
Accessories That Convey A Theme
Decorating A Bedroom Personalize your bedroom by displaying a
collection of items that relate to a particular theme. Consider incorporating items like alarm clocks, lamps,
vases, books and any other items you think would work well in your bedroom interior. Create small arrangements
with these items but remember that cluttering your bedroom with too many accessories will not increase your
rooms 'wow' factor... it will simply just look cluttered! Use your judgment and think subtle accents rather
than going overboard.
Create Wall Arrangements
A grouping of framed photos, or artwork is a great way to make a
blank wall feel more interesting and complete. For a more sophisticated look keep your groups to 3 or 5 framed
items. Personalize your space by displaying artwork that relates to your theme or framing photos of places or
people you love.
Add Accent Lighting
Incorporate some accent lighting when decorating a bedroom to create a
soft and relaxing level of light. Lighting such as bedside lamps, wall sconces, and directional wall washers are
ideal lighting types to include in any bedroom. Highlighting art displays and focal points within the room will
create depth and interest for your space.
Dress The Windows
The right window treatment will considerably enhance your rooms aesthetic.
Consider the mood being created within the bedroom and various personal requirements that need to be met. Layering
different window coverings will give you the option for complete darkness while you're sleeping, and a bright and
airy option during the day. A combination of drapes and shears is a great way to accomplish this. If the use of
drapes makes the space feel too heavy consider using blinds or shades in combination with a full display of

Coordinate Bed Linen Colors
When decorating a bedroom, coordinate the colors of the bedding with
the color scheme of the room. If the walls are a solid color or muted pattern, incorporating a patterned bed
covering can be aesthetically pleasing. If the walls consist of a distinct pattern with fairly prominent
colors, consider using bed coverings in a solid or tone on tone color palette. The use of texture in bed
coverings can be a great way to break up monochromatic colors if a patterned linen is not ideal.
Add A Bedroom Rug
A bedroom rug is a great way to bring comfort to your room especially if
you have a hard floor surface. In a large bedroom, place the bed on an area rug to keep it visually grounded.
Incorporate this element into any room style to help diversify and bring interest to your space. Area rugs come in
a variety of different materials, colors, and sizes so select a style that will compliment the rest of your
