Say Goodbye to Boring Bedroom Walls With Our Cool Decor Ideas!

by John Griffith

When it comes to decorating our homes, we often put a strong emphasis on the hall and living room – after all, these are the spaces which guests see first. Then come the bathrooms and kitchens. More private areas, like bedrooms, are usually last, and we only opt for the bare necessities, like a comfy bed, a couple of simple nightstands, a wardrobe and perhaps a dresser. While this approach might seem sensible (and financially savvy), it is essential not to underestimate the power of a good bedroom decor. After all, we spend a lot more time in the bedroom than in any other area of our home. It is where we rest and recuperate every night, gathering strength for the busy day ahead. We should therefore try our best to make our little nest cozy, calming and inviting. But how? Filling it up with lots of decorative items simply won’t do! Cluttered spaces render relaxing a difficult, if not impossible feat. (Not to mention all the dusting involved!) Instead, you can opt for a creative bedroom wall decor. This will give your sleeping area a personalized touch and lot of character. Plus, there are so many variations to choose from – wallpapers, murals, decals, and a wide array of subtle but effective decorations! In this article we have gathered over 70 inspirational ideas that will help you banish boring walls and create a charming, cozy bedroom! And, if you are looking for fun and cute ideas for your child’s room or nursery, check out our home decor section.
