Your bedroom is your sanctuary, and should be a place of comfort you can live in, not just sleep in. Give your room a boost with these simple design ideas anyone can implement. Whether you choose a brilliant light fixture, a new bedspread or a vintage dresser is up to you!
Create Drama with Lighting
A gorgeous overhead light fixture can create a focal point and transform the overall look of your bedroom with just one change. Choose a fixture that fits your personality and personal style, as well as the accent pieces in your room.
As an added bonus, you can brighten your room and make it more comfortable for reading, lounging and enjoying the space.
Be Bold with Bedding
A bold print on your bedspread can give your room a splash of colour and design without making big changes to paint colours or flooring options. It is also an interchangeable design piece that you can alternate with the seasons or whenever the mood strikes.
Tip: Look for colours and patterns that match or pair with other design elements in your bedroom to tie your entire design together.
Add a Chair for Function & Flair
Your bedroom should be a place of relaxation and style. And while your bed should always be comfortable, a great chair in the corner gives your bedroom a more functional living space with some character.
While a classic vintage wooden chair may look great, we recommend an upholstered chair with a statement pattern or colour that contributes to the design or theme you are trying to achieve.
Light it up with Lamps
A dimly lit room is nobody’s friend. Find great lamps for your bedside tables, dresser, or desk to brighten the room and add a little flair. Find vase shaped pieces for an elegant look, or choose bold patterns on lampshades to show off more vibrant personality and style.
Like your bedspread, lamps and shades are a great opportunity to bring together your room with colour and pattern pairing.
Vintage Furniture Focal Point
Vintage furniture is a fantastic addition to your bedroom. Whether you find a side table or dresser, you can create a unique and visually appealing focal point for the room. Leave it as is, or refurbish it with a new paint job, whichever best suits your personal style.
Keep your eyes peeled at antique shops, yard sales, and estate sales. You never know when the perfect piece for your room will be right in front of you.
