The world of interior design is vast, so it can be difficult to know where to start if you’re looking to revamp your bedroom. Regardless of whether your bedroom is large or small, there are a few things you should start with to get your room looking its best.
Bedrooms aren’t necessarily all about the bed, and accessories and furniture play a large role in making your room feel as comfy and as stylish as possible.
The accessories you go for will largely depend on your style and the decor in the rest of your home, however, there’s no limit to thebedroom accessories you can choose from. These include:
The term bedroom furniture usually refers to your bed, wardrobes, chests of drawers or any other essential pieces. Alternatively, if you have more room to play with this list could go on forever.
You could opt for a designer bedroom furniture set if you want all of your pieces to match, or you could go against the grain by sourcing furniture from different stores. Below, are two contrasting ways that you could use bedroom furniture to take your interior design to the next level.
Matching your bedroom furniture can give your space a clean, cohesive look, and you can play around with different bedroom accessories to make your room look more unique.
Opting for matching furniture can sometimes be more cost-effective too, as stores can offer discount deals for furniture sets or bundles.
Odd or mismatched furniture is a great option if you like hunting for unique, one-off pieces. Just because your furniture doesn’t match, doesn’t mean your room will look messy and unpolished.
Choosing odd furniture is a great way of clashing contrasting styles and setting your bedroom apart from the rest. Just take a look at some of the great examples below:
There are no specific rules that you should stick to when choosing a paint colour for your bedroom. But research suggests that different colours have different effects on the mind, so this decision shouldn’t be taken lightly. Here are a few of our suggestions:

Pink is often seen as a vibrant and joyful colour and there are countless shades to choose from. Opt for a softer shade to feel the benefits without attacking the senses.
Black is often not everyone’s first choice when it comes to painting bedrooms, however, it can give your room a luxurious feel so it’s worth a try if that’s the style you prefer.
No matter whether you’re a modernist or traditionalist, most people gravitate towards certain colours and tones when redecorating. As mentioned above, certain colours evoke different emotions, so it’s important to choose a colour scheme that matches your style as well as your mood.
