Your bedroom is your safe space. It’s important you feel good when spending time in it. And who doesn’t love to feel luxurious? However, you don’t need to spend all your life-saving on designing a bedroom. All you really need is some good, simple and inexpensive design tips, such as the following.

Layers, layers and more layers! This goes for bedsheets, blankets, and even throw pillows. This is an easy way to turn your simple, old bedroom into a luxurious one. Experiment with textures and patterns, this will create a layered and visually rich look to the room. Add a cover and a throw blanket onto the bed. Layer some different style pillows in a cohesive theme. While you may be concerned to not overdo it, sometime more is actually better. Two or three variations of a specific pallet, different patterns or a dynamic blend of textures can really turn the space’s vibe drastically. Just make sure everything is cohesive, and you aren’t just layering things for the sake of it.

Introducing art is one of the easiest ways to elevate a room. If you are starting out on just designing your bedroom, starting with a piece of art is a bit like cheating. This is because it can provide an instant focus point and give you a general pallet. And the best part it, that it doesn’t need to be a wildly expensive piece of art. Just find something you enjoy looking at. It’s a great way to show your personality and elevate the room. It can be anything – a photograph, a painting, or even a sculpture.

Speaking of art, choosing the right bedroom paint color is an art form of its own. Repainting your walls or furniture is a cheap and effective way to make a big difference in the vibe of the room. Paint adds character and personality. However, it’s important to pick the right color. Bold colors are great choices for children’s bedrooms, however if you are worried they will grow out of the color too quick, paint the furniture. It’s an easy way to bring color to a neutral room. However, bold, bright colors aren’t just for teens and children. If you have a large space, with plenty of light you can easily incorporate bold colors. Make an accent wall, for example.

A rug can make or break a room. When decorating a bedroom, we recommend starting out with the rug. This is because it’s harder to find a rug to fit to the aesthetic of a room, however, it’s much easier to build a room around your rug aesthetic. When choosing the right rug, there is one important thing to look out for. Find a big rug that fits at least halfway underneath the key furniture of the room. Having a rug that is too short will automatically giver a cheaper feeling rather than an expensive one.

Most of us make the same mistake. We over clutter our nightstands with all kind of stuff – empty water bottles, charging cords, creams, a book that hasn’t been opened for months and so on. However, clutter in general creates a cheap feeling to your environment. And while it’s something that sooner than later happens, it’s best to take care of it as soon as possible and declutter. Put away some things in the drawer, create a design and specific placements for your items.
