If you use your bedroom only as a place to sleep, maybe it’s time to redecorate! With these super-easy (AND budget-friendly!) room decor ideas, you’ll get to add some character to your space and make it worth posting on Instagram – over and over again.
#1 My Mattress Be My Bed
Get a high-end mattress (more than 8 inches) in lieu of a bed and get some throw pillows with fun sayings or bright colours. Loosely style your bedding with a subtly-coloured quilt to create a softer and more approachable vibe to your room. For a more polished look, opt for a duvet in shades of grey, taupe or french blue.
#2 Bedside Table Manners
The way you keep your bedside table (nightstand) says a lot about who you are. A classy look involves black furniture with vintage-inspired decor. A feminine feel can be achieved by tones of peach and white. Rustic lovers can opt for a nightstand with a wooden frame and decorate with brown and green items.
Instead of a nightstand, you could also choose a couple of old trunks!
#3 ‘Shelfies’ Are In
Believe it or not, “shelfies” are a thing! Instead of storing books and old newspapers on your shelf, experiment with old CDs, candles and trinkets to make it the spotlight of your bedroom.
#ProTip: Make sure the shelves are not placed too high if you have low-levelled bedding to maintain balance.
#4 Go Green With Houseplants
There’s no corner in a bedroom that a houseplant cannot add character to so place them on windowsills, desks or even hang them from the walls!
#5 Fairy Lights
String lights look whimsical no matter where you hang them. What’s best is that fairy lights are inexpensive, flexible & come in a variety of styles!
#6 Personalise Your Dresser
Add a personal touch to your dresser — you could add fabric to the sides of the drawer, paint the base, use lace to re-cover the drawers, paint stripes or even laminate it. The ideas are endless so pick one that resonates with you!
Decorating your bedroom is an art. With these bedroom decor ideas, your Insta-worthy bedroom is only a few tweaks away. A rule of thumb here is get your layering, placement and light setting right, the rest just falls in place. So go ahead – experiment & make a double tap-worthy bedroom!
