Many homeowners are guilty of decorating the living area and other areas of the home and completely forgetting about the bedroom. We also tend to use the bedroom to "hide" the things that we no longer use like a broken exercise machine, clothes that no longer fit, and gifts that we have received through the years.

If you would like to improve the first space that we see in the morning and the last space that we see at night, here are our tried-and-tested bedroom ideas.

Clean your bedroom

If you have too many things in your bedroom, it will look cramped and cluttered. It will also make you feel stressed and frustrated. 

In order to instantly make the bedroom more spacious and relaxing, you should donate or recycle things that you no longer use or need.

Start with a color scheme

If you don't have any design experience, decorating the bedroom may seem like a daunting task! Thankfully, you can simplify the process by sticking to a particular color scheme. Choose two or three colors that you like and pick materials, furniture, decor, and other design elements in these shades.

RL Tip: You only need two or three colors! Start with white, pair it with a darker shade like blue or gray, and use a bright accent color like yellow

Choose wall stickers

Instead of painting your bedroom walls, you can spruce them up with colorful wall stickers! These are budget-friendly, easy-to-install, and can even be removed and reattached as you wish.

Mix and match pillows and bedsheets

You should invest in more expensive pillows and bedsheets. They will last longer, look better, and feel cooler and softer to the touch, too.

RL Tip: Once you have picked out a better set of pillows and bed linen, you can try mixing and matching them for a personalized look.

Install interesting lights

Replace your plain and boring bulb with a modern pendant lamp or an old-fashioned crystal chandelier. Wait for furniture store sales, visit thrift shops, or ask close friends and relatives for their old pieces.

Create a photo wall

Who says that a photo wall can only be used in the living and dining areas? You can display framed pictures on one of your bedroom walls!

Make a different kind of headboard

If you don't have a headboard or you want to complement your existing one, you should put up eye-catching pieces like an artwork or a group of charming starfishes.

Work on an accent wall

Instead of a headboard, an artwork, or decorative pieces, you can also put up wallpaper at the head of your bed! This is more affordable than using wallpaper for all of the bedroom walls. It is also a great way to create a focal point in the bedroom.

RL Tip: If you think wallpaper is too costly and difficult to install, you can try hanging up an oversized world map or beautiful fabric that you love.
