9 Clever Ways to Revamp Your Bedroom






Bedrooms often pass overlooked and neglected as rooms that are kept out of sight. However, as your personal sanctuary and a relaxing oasis, your bedroom should exude serenity, authenticity and your personality. With these inspiring ideas, you can design a whimsical bedroom that is truly yours.

Bid clutter goodbye

Not only can clutter make your bedroom seem messy and small, but it can disrupt the atmosphere of harmony and balance. A clean, clutter-free bedroom is far more relaxing, inspiring and enjoyable, with a distinct, chic look coming into focus. Thus, decluttering is the first step towards reinventing your bedroom and transforming it into your safe haven. A lovely bedroom design where every item has its place and purpose is the key to creating dreamy harmony.

Get in touch with nature

From fresh, colourful flowers to stunning leafy plants, nature is the most beautiful home accessory and it will truly enrich your bedroom design. It will make it brighter, fresher and more enjoyable, with a recognisable natural energy. Hanging plants are a lovely solution for a tiny bedroom while small, cute succulents can be placed on the nightstands. Dark corners will gain a completely new look when decorated with stunning patterned plants. Such a nature-inspired environment is not only stylish, but also healthy.

Light it properly

Subtle, romantic lighting will help you create a soothing, enticing ambience in your bedroom. However, keep in mind that you’ll need a bright light, too, especially if you’re an avid bedtime reader. Dimmers are a practical solution that will enable you to adjust the light depending on the mood. You should also add lovely bedside lamps, but don’t hesitate to experiment. Chic pendants are a trendy replacement for traditional lamps.

Consider wabi-sabi

If you love all things imperfect and authentic, wabi-sabi is the style for you. By embracing the beauty of imperfection, this stunning style creates a cosy, lived-in look, perfect for a dreamy bedroom. Implementing wabi-sabi in your bedroom means using flawed materials, handcrafted decorations and wrinkled fabrics that will give your bedroom a unique, cosy appeal. 

Use the bed as the focal point


Every room needs a focal point and the bed is the perfect one for your bedroom. It will be the most stunning, impactful detail in your safe haven and an exceptional design statement. To transform your bed into a focal point, you need to accentuate it. You can achieve this by opting for a custom-made bed frame design that will bring your bed into focus and create the wow effect. Combined with a stunning statement headboard and beautiful linen, your bed will exude relaxation and style.

Paint the walls for peacefulness

Repainting your walls is a simple, but always effective way to create a new enchanting look in your bedroom. A colour scheme of greens, blues and greys is a perfect choice that will create an ambience of serenity and tranquillity. However, you can also use bolder hues for an accent wall or decorative details. Dark, brooding tones, such as emerald green, deep violet and night-sky navy, are mesmerising options that bring relaxation, boldness and authenticity together.

Make it cosy and comfortable

As your relaxing oasis, your bedroom is the one place where you should be able to truly unwind and forget about the rest of the world. Thus, an atmosphere of cosiness and comfort should dominate your safe haven. And there’s no better way to create such a look than by introducing layers of soft fabrics. Lush bedding, plush pillows, soft blankets and fuzzy area rugs are all emblems of cosiness that you should implement in your bedroom. In addition, they will provide you with a great opportunity to add a pop of colour or introduce mesmerising patterns to a subtle bedroom environment.

Add new artwork

For the finishing touch, inspiring paintings are always the best embellishment. You can use them to set up a specific theme in your bedroom or use colours from the paintings throughout your room for a cohesive look. You can simply add artwork from some other room or buy new pieces. However, if you don’t want to replace your current bedroom paintings, you can just reframe them and give them a new flair.

Reinvent old pieces

Not only is repurposing eco-friendly, but it’s also a perfect way to embrace vintage beauty or transform old pieces. If you’ve always loved a retro look, you can use antique furniture and elements to create a vintage look in your bedroom. Old suitcases can be transformed into stunning nightstands while an antique dresser can be used as a lovely vanity. This way, not only will you give your bedroom authentic character, but you’ll also make a small, but valuable contribution to the environment preservation.
Your bedroom is the one room that should feel truly yours. Thus, you should try some of these inspiring ideas and revamp your bedroom easily and creatively.
