As it’s the one room of the house that’s least often seen by guests, it can be tempting to stick with the same bedroom décor year after year. But the bedroom deserves just as much love as any other room. After all, it’s your private sanctuary where you can relax and unwind at the end of a busy day, so it makes sense to style it to your personal tastes as much as possible.
If you’re stuck for ideas, check out these Wren bedrooms for inspiration – or alternatively, here are some quick design tips.
1. Create a mood with colour and patterns
Bedrooms are all about relaxing, of course, so choose whatever you find most soothing: whether it’s pastel shades and floral motifs or bright, warm colours in blocks.
2. Choose the comfiest furniture you can get
If you’ve got space for chairs in your bedroom, make them the kind of luxurious, cushioned armchairs you can sink into – perfect for a bit of reading before bed!
3. Invest in a classic bedside table
Although it may seem like a functional piece of furniture, a good antique or vintage-style bedside table can really add a touch of class to your bedroom, while also adding more storage.
4. Plan your lighting
Don’t just have a simple on-off switch in the bedroom: dimmer switches are much more functional and don’t cost much more. Alternatively, get a few bedside lamps so you can control the light levels in the room.
5. Consider wall prints
A great way to put your own stamp on a bare, boring wall is to decorate it with some wall decal prints. You can get everything from animals and trees to cupcakes and geometric designs, and they really liven up a wall.
6. Pile up the pillows
Nothing makes a room cosy and inviting like a big pile of pillows on the bed, so invest in some extra padding and take your bed to the next level! Consider getting a throw blanket to complete the effect.
7. Find the right place for your bed
The positioning of your bed is one of the most important aspects of the bedroom. Many people like to have it directly opposite the biggest window so the sunlight streams in on them in the morning.
