Your bedroom is primarily a place to sleep.

It’s important to remember this when choosing the décor. Of course, it is also a place to relax, enjoy intimate relations, and reflects your own personal tastes. That means you need to think carefully about the best way to beautify your bedroom and ensure it looks just the way you want it to.
Keep The Walls Subtle
Painting one wall a bright colour can seem like a great idea. It creates a focal point. However, in reality, it means you will need to repaint it regularly as your tastes and desires change. Instead of using bold colours, it is a good idea to use neutral or pastel colours. These will help the room to feel brighter and more spacious. The neutral colours will also enhance the other additions you make to beautify your bedroom.
Use A Rug
You can position a large rug in your room and have your bed on it or you can use smaller rugs to fill the space. Your decision will depend on the size of the room.
However, it is a good idea to keep the rug a neutral colour as well, these beige rugs are a great place to start. Having a neutral rug allows you to embrace the feel of it and it will elevate the look and feel of the bedroom.
Your bedroom probably needs bright lights to help you get ready before leaving the house. It may also need more subdued lighting to help you fall asleep or engage in other bedroom activities.
The best approach is to add a bright central light that has a dimmer switch, allowing you to control the light level. You can also add bedside lights to give even more control.
The style of light you choose is personal, larger rooms can cope with more ornate affairs while smaller rooms generally do better with simple lights. But, this is a great opportunity to let your own style be reflected in the room.
The Right Size Furniture
Don’t forget that large rooms can accommodate larger furniture while smaller rooms do better with smaller ones when looking at height. The smaller the room the more important it is that your furniture doesn’t reach the ceiling. It will make the space feel cramped and uninviting.
Consider what furniture you really need in your bedroom and opt for a minimalist approach. It will enhance the appearance of the items you have chosen to add to the room.
Finally, it is your bedroom! You need to add some personal touches. That means pictures you like on the walls, a few ornaments on bedside tables and other furniture, and perhaps a nice display case for your jewellery.
Adding personal touches ensures the room feels personal and intimate. At the same time, limiting the number of items you add to the space will help to ensure it looks and feels beautiful, even if you are the only one that appreciates the space.
