11 Ideas on How to Decorate Your Bedroom

Deciding how to decorate a bedroom can be tricky business. The bedroom is the place that is usually a large indication of what a person is like, and can be a reflection of them. As such, it is important to consider all of the factors in this guide, such as the themes, wall colour, furniture and general decorations. Everything that is needed to decorate a bedroom effectively from beds to paint is available in the Home and Garden section oneBay.

Who Is the bedroom for?

One of the biggest considerations when decorating a bedroom is the question of who is the bedroom for. Many people express their personalities in their bedroom, whether they are a small child, teenager or adult couple. Below are a few tips to help a buyer to decide how to decorate the bedroom for the various age groups and genders:

Small Children

Whether for a boy or girl, use bright colours on the walls and around the room. When it comes to furniture and fittings, be sure that they are suitable for a child, so they can use everything easily, such as wardrobes and bedside tables.


Teenagers tend to express themselves the most with their bedrooms so it important to give them input as well. Cool accessories and fittings can help to show their individuality without having to overly commit to huge colour changes, meaning their room can change and evolve as they grow up.

Adult Bedroom

For adults, the bedroom needs to be expressive of what either the person or couple is like in a bedroom. Most adults will tend to go for either softer, tranquil colours, which is great for sleeping and relaxation, or deeper, darker colours that promote comfort.

Adults will tend to have more meaningful items in their rooms, such as family pictures and souvenirs of travels, etc. Finding a balance for two different people who share the room can be quite difficult, but using the tips in this guide will help to change the look and feel of the room without taking drastic measures meaning the room’s decoration can change over time.

The Top 11 Ideas on How to Decorate Your Bedroom

1.    Pillows

Don’t be shy to use lots of pillows in the bedroom. Using lots of different patterns and prints can create a really homely, comfortable feel and can really add character to the room.

2.    Artwork

Hanging artworkthat homeowners have either done themselves or bought can really add colour and life to a boring wall. Artwork can promote relaxation and also shows a lot of individuality in the room.

3.    Printed Bed Sheets

Printed bed sheets can really be the focal point of the room and means less decorating needs to be done around the rest of the room. This is a time saver and can give a great minimalist feel.

4.    Prints on Furniture and Accent Pieces

Striking prints of main pieces, such as drawers, wardrobes, lampshadesand curtains, are a great way to decorate the bedroom.

5.    Using the Walls for Fixtures and Fittings

Fitting nightstands and lamps to the walls are great space savers and can look pretty cool as well.

6.    Personal Pictures/Souvenirs

As aforementioned, a person’s bedroom should reflect that person’s personality and interests, so it is important to have things around the bedroom that add a personal touch, such as family photos or mementoes from travels.

7.    Be Consistent

Be consistent with colours and shapes so that the room looks well thought out and matches.

8.    Choose a Focal Point

A great piece of furniture can be the focal point and is normally the bed. A tip to make the bed more focal is to angle the bed rather than placing it against the wall. This will take up a bit more space, but can really give a different feel to the room.

9.    Inject Hints of Colour Around the Room

Fixtures and accessories can help to give little pops of colour around the room without committing to the colour on a bigger scale, like the wall colour, etc. The use of lampshades and small ornamentshelp to add a variety of colour and can be changed easily when it isn’t to one’s taste anymore.

10.Using the Floor to Your Advantage

A jazzy rugcan really help to brighten up a room, and is great if one has hard wooden flooring rather than carpet.

11.Layer Colours

Use a variety of tones and shades of a buyer’s chosen colour to give a layered feel to the room and depth.

Using these tips will help to create a bedroom that is stylish, comfortable and, best of all, shows the person or couple’s personalities. The bedroom is the one room that is truly a homeowner’s and where a lot of time is spent, so it is imperative to customise it and be what they want it to be. All of the items in the tips above can be found in the Home and Garden section on eBay.
