5 DESIGN TIPS TO PERSONALISE YOUR BEDROOM
While bedrooms are a deeply personal space—and many guests may never see—they're also where you will spend most of the hours in your home.
However, it can be hard to decorate a master bedroom that hits every note — a calm, organised retreat that helps you sleep without sacrificing your personal style and aesthetic.
These 5 simple ideas and innovative tips and tricks can elevate the space, creating a room that reflects as it restores, impresses as it invigorates.
1. Subtle Colour Palette
Consider ditching bold primary colours and choose monochromatic tones which have a soothing effect on the person occupying the space.
If you’re looking for a cosier and more comfortable feel then consider rich-jewel toned hues like toasty browns, topaz or deep pomegranate.
Tip 1 – According to colour theory – gentle hues of blue, green or lavender can give out a calm and serene feeling.
2. The 5th Wall – Ceiling
The ceiling design should not be ignored as it’s the 5th wall in the bedroom. You don’t want to see anything dull when you’re lying down on the bed staring at the ceiling.
Adding a subtle pattern or a mild paint can really spruce up the wall.
If you don’t mind a little luxurious spending – silver-leaf coated ceilings or a canopy tented bed add colour and texture to the room.
Tip 2 – Try painting the ceiling a little different from the wall colours, it will help visually lower the ceiling, giving the room a more intimate and comfortable feel.
3. Cover the Windows
A window is never complete until you have addressed your window dressing situation.
A beautifully dressed window provides colour, structure and texture to the room.
Tip 3 – To give the room a breezier feel adds sheer curtains that filter some of the light into the room or opaque blinds for mornings when you feel like sleeping in and solving privacy issues.
4. Lighting Options
An ideal bedroom look is only complete with multiple lighting options in the room.
There is nothing more frustrating than having one overhead light.
Use a bedside lamp for the reading and some accent lighting to wash the wall with soft illumination
Tip 4 – Consider installing a dimmer for multiple lights in the room as you can set the mood and tone as per your will.
5. Heaps of Storage
A room can feel serene and relaxing, if there is no clutter. This is possible if you have “adequate storage”.
Hide your books, moisturisers and reading glasses in your bedside table making it within reach and out of sight.
Using a customised drawer organisation system can help organising small items which need to be used regularly.
Tip 5 – The end of the bed is a perfect and unsuspecting area spot to add storage – a vintage trunk. This is very useful for storing bed sheets, blankets and pillows.
