Even if you have all the essentials available in your bedroom, your bedroom is not complete. If you look closely, you will feel that something is missing. Despite having all the necessary furniture and a good colour scheme, your bedroom needs a personal touch. This will make you feel more comfortable when you relax in your bedroom. Luckily, there are various ways to add a more personal touch to your bedroom. If you are not sure how to give your bedroom a more personal touch and upgrade your simple bedroom design, here are a few tips that will help you:
01 of 06 Do not leave the walls empty
Give your bedroom walls a more interesting look by hanging paintings on the walls. Although it is more common to hang artwork in the living room, you can consider hanging them in your bedroom as well to enhance its appeal. Depending on your preferences, you can hang anything on the bedroom walls from paintings, posters, to a collection of family photos, and portraits. This will certainly add more visual interest to your bedroom design.
02 of 06 Choose an appealing headboard
You can completely transform the look of your room by adding an appealing headboard to the setup. Look for a gorgeous upholstered headboard that complements the rest of the colours in the room and makes the look appear more elegant and luxurious. Choose a vibrant coloured striking headboard for a neutral coloured bedroom to create a more contrasting and bold appeal. If you do not want to invest in an expensive headboard, you can always showcase your creativity and create a beautiful DIY headboard. This will help to add a more personal touch to your bedroom design.
03 of 06 Metallic elements are great
Using various items like glass or metallic surfaces to add more shine to the bedroom design is a great way for adding more visual interest. By choosing the right materials, you can give the bedroom a very posh look. Any gold finish metallic item is one of the most common decor items you can add. Silver or chrome rates very high on the style chart as well. However, make sure that you do not go overboard with it. A little bit of shine is fine but too much can ruin the overall appeal.
04 of 06 Add throw pillows
You can choose neutral colours for your bedroom but it is important to add some contrast as well to keep the bedroom look interesting. However, you do not have to add a lot of contrasting elements. Just adding a few throw pillows to your bedroom idea is sufficient. You will find throw pillows in various designs, styles, and colours. Put some thought into choosing them. Make sure that you buy throw pillows that complement the overall appeal. Most experts suggest adding 3 throw pillows. Although they do not have to match, they should have some similarities.
05 of 06 Pay attention to bedroom lighting
Do not limit your bedroom lighting to just one lightbulb on the ceiling encased in frosted glass. This bedroom idea will make the room appear boring. Instead of opting for one dull ceiling light, explore the various lighting fixtures available in the market. There are many intricately designed lighting fixtures that will instantly enhance the appeal of the room. From pendant lights, wall sconces, track lights to table lamps, you can add almost anything. Chandeliers are a great option as well. However, you must ensure that the chandelier does not appear too large or too small for the room. Otherwise, it might make the overall design appear very awkward.
06 of 06 Add plants to the bedroom decor
Potted plants are commonly used in many home designs. This is because they can breathe life into any home design. They not only help to add more colours and textures to your bedroom decor but also purify the air indoors. Further, you can create more visual appeal by adding plants of different shapes and sizes, potted in well-designed planters. There are various options you can opt for like Chinese evergreen, pothos, or dracaena.
