The bedroom is a personal sanctuary that should be neat and comfortable. Sometimes, its usual decor and layout can be a drag. When you feel the need for change, you can choose to give your bedroom a glamorous makeover without having to splurge to achieve that aesthetic.
There are numerous ways to make your bedroom look luxurious. With a little use of your creativity and by following the tips and tricks below, you can achieve it effortlessly.
Create Sophisticated Walls
The walls cover the largest area and can make or break the theme of your room. Luxurious rooms use appealing paints or statement wallpapers to dress the walls. Neutral colors are best for master bedrooms, such as off-white, yellow, and warm beige. These calming colors create the ultimate luxury in a bedroom with a soothing aura.
Besides, you can create an accent wall in the bedroom to lend it an extravagant air. The wall behind the bed is a suitable candidate for this. You can add decorative finishes such as custom wallpaper, or tufted upholstery or paint it in a contrasting color. Another option is to invest in big artwork or sculptures that can go on the wall to make it a focal point.
Try Triple Sheets
A well-made bed has untapped potential and can make you feel snuggled up in a hotel bed. Choose two sheets and fold the edge of the top one over the duvet for a refined look. Or you can opt for triple sheeting. The best hotels use triple sheeting to make the bed feel crisp and clean. It is one of the most affordable ways of upgrading your bed, especially when you don’t have a duvet cover.
All you need are two beautiful linen sheets. Place a comforter between those sheets to achieve a neat look. A thin blanket would also suffice. Tuck the materials tight under the mattress and add throw pillows as well. The sheets help because you won’t have to launder the comforter or blanket often.
Layer the Pillows
Many people don’t get the appeal of a dozen pillows in a bedroom, but they have magical power. When creatively placed, a handful of practical pillows and decorative pillows will attract the eye, and add texture and a pop of color. Layering the pillows will give a fresh appeal with varying heights and color schemes.
Prop the pillows you use for sleeping on the headboard of the bed, then use smaller decorative pillows like realistic plant pillows and lean them on the larger pillows at the back. Just keep the sleeping pillows and decorative pillows within a quarter of the total bed length when styling.
Throw in a Rug
Incorporating a rug to decorate your bedroom is the easiest way to style it. But before you bring in a rug, find out what looks good on your bedroom floor, and whether it complements the overall layout or looks out of place. If you have thickly piled carpeted flooring, consider thinner rugs.
The color and the material of the rug are important factors. The colors should balance with the existing palette of the room and the material should feel soft and warm. It will add texture and color to the floor. You can choose floral, geometric or toned-down run styles to freshen up your flooring.
Add Trays to Your Dresser
A beautiful tray to your dresser or vanity can add style to your bedroom. A small tray doesn’t have to be expensive but you can still find ones with a beautiful design. Or get a simple one and spray it with metallic color or any shade of choice.
This helps you become more organized and adds a pinch of drama. You can place the otherwise-scattered things such as perfume bottles or your jewelry on the tray.
Incorporate Artwork in the Bedroom
Art pieces are not only for the wealthy anymore. Anyone who appreciates good art can now afford them for as little as a hundred dollars. You can show off your artwork in style in the bedroom, whether it is a sculpture, a painting or a photograph.
A print or painting adds a focal point to the room. A colorful painting will allow you to experiment with the bedroom’s look. At times, you can decide the entire layout of the room with a color palette of the artwork.
Add Texture to the Room
If you feel that your room is too plain, you can add certain items to make it artistically rich and visually alluring. Use rattan baskets as hampers or as knitting baskets. Rattan light fixtures also make a fun contrast to a neutral-colored room.
A fake fur throw pillow would also look good on a chair or the bed for layering. Pillows and blankets with tassels can give a fun and exciting feel. Hang vibrant tapestries on the wall for extra texture.
Place Unique or Vintage Cabinets
Your bedside cabinets can offer a fresh feel to your bedroom. They don’t have to be boring. Opt for a more interesting cabinet that will be both aesthetical and functional. Depending on the look you want, you can find one in a matching theme to your room or use one that adds an exciting contrast.
You could go for the vintage look and add a cabinet with a dark look. It can be something contemporary if the works well with the rest of the room. You may even look for second-hand pieces online.
Decorate With Greenery
A touch of greenery goes a long way whether you are upgrading your living room or your bedroom. A room with a few plants in it not only looks luxurious but is a healthy space, as well. Thus, consider placing indoor plants to help purify the air and help you sleep better.
Green is a calming and healing color that could also go with the look of your room. You can pick up a large fern or a rubber tree for an empty corner. Look for lavender, English ivy, lady palm, or Chinese evergreen plants to add a pop of color.
Add Statement Lighting
Lighting upgrades can do wonders in transforming the look of a space. If you want to make your bedroom look luxurious, you can consider adding statement lighting. Change the overhead fixture, and add different lighting levels or lights on a dimmer switch.
You should have multiple lighting sources in the bedroom. A hanging light, a glamorous chandelier and a couple of floor lamps ought to do the trick.
A luxurious bedroom doesn’t always have to have the most expensive items. You can get accessories in your budget and give your room the star treatment. It’s all about using design, color, and texture to your advantage.
