Designing a bedroom is a lot like designing your dream home. You want to make it as cozy and comfortable as possible. But the first step in achieving that goal is knowing what you’re working with. In other words, understanding your bedroom’s limitations (or features). Your room might be small or have an uninspiring view of another home across the street; these are things you’ll need to take into consideration when deciding how to use space and where certain pieces should go.
The good part is there are many ways you can work around those problems while still making sure your room feels warm and inviting. So here are some awesome ideas to add a stylish yet cozy texture to your master bedroom.
- Add throw pillows with different fabrics and patterns:
- Add a pop of color by choosing throw pillows in different colors. Keep the rest of your bedroom neutral, and then introduce one or two pops of bright colors (in both furniture pieces as well).
- Bring some texture with printed fabrics that have big designs on them like paisley or diamond patterns. Or go for something more subtle with stripes, dots, and florals; these prints are always popular choices because they’re not too bold but still add enough visual interest to make a statement.
- Try mixing textures throughout the space: use velvet next to cotton fabric next to silk! The combinations can be endless, and it’s all about what you feel most comfortable with since this is your bedroom, after all.
- Place area rugs strategically for warmth:
Rugs are a new go-to option for adding warmth to a master bedroom. They’re also the perfect way to add texture without going overboard, and they help create that cozy feeling you want in your space. A good rule of thumb is placing area rugs under nightstands or an armchair next to a bed; this will provide additional comfort for reading before bedtime.
- Style your bed:
The designers have gone beyond the regular bedspread to create a sleeker look. Think about investing in an all-white bedding set, and then add color with throws or pillows on top! You can also invest in a circular bed if you have the space or an all-white set of linens for that clean, modern feel. Investing in new sheets is especially important because they’re one of the only things that actually touch our skin while we sleep each night, so make sure to add bed sheets that match your bedroom’s style and personality.
- Add lighting:
This can be as easy as installing new lamps or adding table lamps next to your desk space; the more natural light you have when studying for work at night, the better. You’ll want to include track lights because that way, they’re adjustable, so you can use them in any spot throughout your home. Besides, you get wider options like fairy lights, which are a great option for creating that cozy atmosphere.
- Install curtains designed to keep out sunlight:
It’s important not only from a comfort standpoint but also if you live where it snows quite often (or where there are frequent cloudy days). The last thing you need is waking up every morning blinded by the sun coming through the window.
For a more radical effect, try installing curtains made out of natural materials like wood or bamboo. These can be stained to match your décor and add warmth to the room; they’ll also help protect you from drafts in wintertime. And if there are guests coming over who you don’t want looking into your bedroom while sitting on the couch, these are perfect because they’re see-through.
- Add scented candles:
The scented candles are soothing, and the aroma can help create a feeling of well-being. You don’t need to spend much on them; there are many reasonably priced scented candles that smell great and will light up your bedroom without being overpowering. If you don’t want the scent to linger, be sure to dispose of the candle carefully after you’re done and wait for a while before lighting up another one.
- Use bamboo shades or window panels on your windows:
This is an excellent way to add some privacy and block out light coming in from outside. They’ll also help create a romantic atmosphere with their natural scent; they come in various colors, too, so you can choose what best compliments your bedroom décor. And if there are guests that you don’t want looking into your room while sitting on the couch, these are perfect because they’re see-through!
- Add some greenery:
You should also place some plants around the room for decoration, but make sure they’re not poisonous if you have kids or pets running around! This is just another way to add color as well as fresh air into your home’s interior design with minimal effort. Indoor plants like Jade plants and bamboo palms are a good option because they’re easy to maintain. You can install a small shelf near a window and place your plants there for an easy DIY design.
Another good idea is to get some leafy green vines, like creeping money plants or vines, that you can grow on the wall! These will work best if you’re looking for something with more of a traditional look because they are so old-school. And if these weren’t enough ideas already, just think about what type of flowers would be best in your room based on their scent – roses are perfect for romantic evenings, while lavender smells great when it fills up the air around bedtime.
- Use your creativity:
Add in some personal touches with artwork or other items from around your house that represent you as an individual, which will give the space a more personalized feeling. Some ideas for artwork that you can use:
- Framed family photos.
- A map of the world with little sticky notes showing where you’ve been (and a smaller one to show your travel destinations). Maps are great because they’re not only visually interesting but also provide information about locations, so they can serve as an educational piece in addition to being just aesthetically pleasing.
- Posters or paintings that have quotes from people who inspire you, like Vincent Van Gogh and Georgia O’Keeffe.
- Framing pieces of art you bought at a museum is another way to personalize this space into something special!
