10 Ways To Give Your Bedroom The Stylish Edge it Deserves

We all love our own bedroom, but often it is the most overlooked room from a design point of view. We pay more attention to decorating, creating, and styling common areas everyone will enjoy over ones that only a few get to see. The bedroom is usually last on the list when it really should be up there at the top. It is a place where we thrive and revive; a place where we gain peace at the end of the night and start each new day with a fresh perspective. And if our bedroom doesn’t get perfectly decorated, we will still survive. But what if you could make a few small changes without committing to a complete makeover, go at your own pace, and actually enjoy it? That could be a game changer, right?!

Here are 10 easy ways to give your bedroom the stylish edge it deserves.

Let’s start with lighting. You won’t believe how simple and affordable it is to swap out lighting. By changing out your old overhead pendant or chandelier, you can transform your space and exude style. You can go for a woven material, metal, or wood, or bring in a balanced mix. Don’t forget the lighting by your bed! Hanging pendants and sconces make for a bold choice.

Another simple change is to bring in plant life. Adding ferns, tropical plants, and succulents is not only a pretty design element, but it’s also a healthy one, especially in the bedroom. Try hanging plants; it’s a great space-saver and fun alternative.

The easiest and most affordable way to update any space is with paint. Not sure you will love an entire room in a bold color? Why not try a focal wall? Behind the bed is a great place to add a pop of color.

Art is my favorite way to make a bedroom seem like it stepped out of the pages of a magazine. With all the choices out there and tutorials, it is way easier than you think to incorporate artwork. Take the fun, quirky piece above as an example.

Another great way to add a stylish vibe to your bedroom is with a wall treatment. This can also be applied to a focal wall. The level of commitment depends on your design aesthetic and comfort level. Some ideas are wallpaper, board and batten, shiplap, picture molding, or a feature wall of reclaimed wood.

Getting organized in the bedroom is a great way to sleep better and relieve stress. Face it: when you are looking at “stuff” before bed and in the morning, it is hard to gain clarity.

A headboard is easier and more affordable that you think. You can use reclaimed wood, an old door, or make one yourself. It creates a focal point in the room, and it also makes your bed feel cohesive and complete.

Adding side tables is a good way to stay on trend. From IKEA hacks to do-it-yourself projects, there are an assortment of side table options to choose from. When in doubt, you can always find them at your favorite home stores.

Shelves are ideal for organizing your vertical space. Being able to display meaningful accessories and photos gives your bedroom the authentic charm it craves.

When in doubt, just change out a few accessories. This always makes a space feel new and fresh. You can shop your house, hit your local thrift store, or pop into your favorite home stores. From pillows to bedding and everything in between, any small (or big) change makes a difference.

Happy decorating,
