7 Bedroom Ideas For Your Next Bedroom Makeover

May 8, 2023   By Clarisa Mcdonald

Think about it, we spend most of our time in our bedrooms. With eight hours of sleep every night and even more for leisure time, you need a space that is an extension of yourself.

Your bedroom is often regarded as a sacred space for rest and relaxation, so having it styled to your taste helps you have the best experience.

There’s no one way to style a bedroom, as it all comes down to personal preference. This article gives you different bedroom styling tips and ideas on how to style a master bedroom or even a guest bedroom that perfectly matches your personality and what you want.

1. Start with the Bed Base as the Perfect Centrepiece

Your bed is the centrepiece of your room and the most essential part. This is where you sleep and where you spend the most time.

Your bed is also the most significant piece of furniture inside the room, so your bedroom design should focus on that. Even small spaces can be styled well when having a focus piece, and concentrating on a minimalist look is best.

Pick a bed base or bed frame with a timeless style that is built to last the test of time. Consider a headboard or bedhead with a timeless design or even unique features such as a hidden shelf, which is a fantastic addition to storage and styling. With a timeless design, your bed base will never go out of style. 

This is why we love the Ecosa Bed Base. With its natural wood grains from solid ash timber, you have a timeless centrepiece that will stand the test of time.

2. Choose a Colour Palette

One way to revamp your bedroom is to pick one main colour and base all decorating on that. You can paint your walls with this colour, or even one wall as a feature wall, leaving the other walls in white or a neutral colour. You can balance crisp white walls with artwork in energetic hues. Test patches to make sure the paint colour is right for you.

Plan your theme before redecorating, begin to figure out what works and what doesn’t work together, and avoid any purchases that do not work well with the theme. Bed styling shouldn’t be wasteful and expensive.

If painting is too much work, simply use this feature colour to build a colour palette. Your bedspread, any paintings, or bedroom decor should all match this colour.

Interior design isn’t just about the home decor you add to your room but also about how everything ties together in place.

3. Light It Up

We know that one of the best ways to get good sleep is to keep the room as dark as possible during bedtime. During the day, it’s the opposite. If you spend a lot of time in your bedroom, you probably want it to be well-lit.

The two options to consider with lighting are artificial light and natural light. Natural light plays a significant role in keeping your bedroom looking lively during the day, especially that part of your room that you consider your home office. Diffusing sunlight with translucent drapes also adds soft but vibrant lighting inside your bedroom that would make you appreciate waking up in the morning with the curtains open.

Adding in different artificial light sources plays a vital role in your bedroom’s appearance during the early evenings or overcast days.

Play around with different accent lights or decorative lighting that could provide a warm, relaxing ambience to your room. For example, if you’re considering a remodel of your bedroom, adding pendant lights or even a chandelier to your ceiling can add more depth and dimension to your bedroom without the lights being too bright at night.

4. Plants, Plants and More Plants!

Adding a bit of greenery to your bedroom is our favourite bedroom decorating idea. Having a few indoor plants with rattan pots adds contrast to liven up the tones in your room and clean and purify the air you breathe.

Whether you go for boho a modern bedroom or other neutral colour schemes- plants can be added to any room corner for decoration, and hanging plants from the ceiling is a great way to save space in small bedrooms. Having a large plant by the side of the bed or as part of an accent wall and panelling is also an excellent way to add an extra pop of greens that work really well with monotone or white bedroom paint colours.

5. Side Tables

Side tables are a great accessory for your bed. The bed is your anchor, and the tables are the accent pieces that surround them. While side tables are a great way to accent your bed and style up the bedroom, they’re also a way to introduce clutter.

Keep your bedside tables clear of unnecessary objects from both a style and organisation perspective. Choose side tables with drawers or storage compartments, so it’s convenient to stow away small items. You can decorate with decors like table lamps, vases, plants, books, or an alarm clock.

The Ecosa Bedside Table is the perfect companion to the Ecosa Bed Base, following the same timeless design, plus it offers a convenient storage solution for your electronic devices and other personal effects.

6. Let Your Bedding Talk

Bedrooms are often painted with flat colour palettes, and these tones may not really show much about your personal tastes and preferences. If you’re not up to painting your walls like in the first tip, let’s look at your bedding.

The best way to go about that is by showing your character through your choices of bed linens, duvet covers, and pillowcases. You can also add some throw pillows and blankets with different patterns to contrast with block colour.

Splashing on some colour for your fitted sheets will accentuate your bed and create a focal point for the space, you may add contrast by adding in flat sheets of different colours or patterns. If you’re looking for luxurious bedding in earthy neutral tones, look no further than Ecosa’s 100% organic bamboo bedding sheet sets.

7. Make It Your Own Bedroom Look

Consider adding a personal touch to your space. Hang any art or family photos on your walls, or add little knick-knacks on any surface space.

Feeling like you’re styling your bed like a pro already? Just don’t forget to avoid going overboard, as this may throw off the style. You should be working towards an eclectic mix of style and personality.
