Choose soft colors

The colors you choose will directly affect the soothing feel of your bedroom. Take bright colors, for example. Although they may be suitable for other parts of the house, they usually look too dramatic. This is rarely what you would want in your bedroom.

For this reason, experts recommend opting for soft or subtle colors. Use lighter or soft shades of lavender, blue or even gray.

That said, we can’t forget that some people love bright colors and ultimately you’re designing a room for yourself, not someone else. Therefore, if you like brighter colors, don’t be afraid to experiment with them.

Otherwise, you can opt for subtle colors on the walls and introduce your favorite bright colors into the decorations. For example, you can introduce paintings, wallpapers, cushions, etc., with the bright colors you like.

Choose your furniture carefully

Consider the size of your room when choosing furniture. Remember, you want your bedroom to look and feel comfortable. If you opt for large pieces of furniture when you don’t have enough space, your room will look cramped and cluttered.

On the other hand, small pieces of furniture will disappear from space if your room is too big.

Start by understanding the space you have to work with. If you have a lot of them, opt for larger pieces of furniture. You can even introduce an ottoman and other types of furniture to properly utilize the space.

Additionally, you can choose a bed with a larger headboard if your bedroom ceiling is high enough.

If your bedroom has limited space, consider making the bed your focal point. No need to introduce more furniture if there is not enough space for them.

Don’t forget the ceiling

The ceiling is more important than you think when considering bedroom design ideas. It is, after all, the third wall of the room. Plus, it’s probably the wall you’ll be looking at most of the time when you go to bed or wake up.

There are different ways to integrate the ceiling with the rest of your decor. An easy way is to paint it a slightly lighter color than the paint on your walls. This will perfectly complement the design of your interior, in addition to visually lowering the ceiling.

Another option is to decorate the ceiling with wallpaper or a stencil. You can also install a molded medallion and hang a chandelier.

Be creative with the decorations, but don’t overdo it; otherwise, the ceiling and your room will look too busy.

Choose your lighting carefully


Don’t rely on just one light source. Adding multiple light fixtures can dramatically transform your bedroom. Install fixtures for the three main types of lighting, i.e. task, accent and ambient.

For example, you can install spot lighting on the bedside lamp. Use it when reading novels or doing other serious tasks. You can then install mood and accent lights on
strategic points on the wall.

This way you can always switch between different types of lighting to transform the mood of your room on demand.

Invest in good sheets

Finally, choose the right linens to add aesthetics and comfort to your bedroom. Buy luxurious fabrics like 100% cotton or linen sheets if you can. If you have other furniture in the room, also buy high-quality fabrics. You can also add plush floor coverings, a silk canopy, etc.

Don’t just focus on the sheets and forget about your mattress. The goal is not just to make your bedroom comfortable. It should be comfortable. Therefore, find a good mattress.

There are many excellent mattresses designed for different needs, as evidenced by CityMattress. So browse through different mattresses by inspecting their features and then find the one that best suits your needs. Plus, they come in different sizes, so you should find one that fits your space needs perfectly.

These are some of the best interior design ideas for your bedroom. You should be able to follow and implement these tips yourself, but you can also consult a professional interior designer if you want clean results.
