Decorate Your Bedroom Like An Interior Designer

 Decorating your bedroom can be a fun and exciting experience but it can also be stressful, particularly with so many ideas and options to choose from. You might find it challenging to transfer your dream bedroom idea into reality. So what can you do?

We’re going to show you how to decorate your bedroom like an interior designer with our five tips including:

  • Finding inspiration

  • Choosing a colour palette

  • Planning the flow

  • Getting the lighting right

  • Introducing textures


Your bedroom should be an oasis of calm to help you get the most from a good night’s sleep. Look for inspiration in anything that brings you joy such as the beach, the mountains, or even your favourite cafe. 

You can take inspiration from anything but using interior design magazines or websites can help if you’re struggling to find a direction. Create a mood board with colours and textures to allow you to test your ideas before committing yourself. 


Choosing a colour palette will be a personal choice but most interior designers suggest using subtle, calming colours. A base neutral paint lets you add pops of colour with bedding, furniture or artwork on the walls. 

This will also help to keep the cost to paint a room within your budget as neutral colours tend to be more affordable. Even with subtle colours, you can introduce an accent wall either with paint or a striking patterned wallpaper. 


Getting the flow right is conducive to a relaxing space so make sure you can move around the room without having to negotiate pieces of furniture. Create built-in storage where you can to reduce the amount of floor space taken up by wardrobes and chests of drawers. 

Most interior designers recommend as clutter-free a space in your bedroom as you can manage. This adds to the feeling of serenity and encourages a relaxing atmosphere in this restful space. 


The right lighting in a bedroom is vital as you want it to be soothing and cosy as well as functional. Overhead lights should have dimmers so you can adjust them as you need. 

Bedside lamps should create enough light for reading but choose warm, yellow lighting rather than harsh white light. This helps boost levels of melatonin which induces sleep. Lighting layers in a bedroom will let you alter the atmosphere to create the mood you want. 


Decorating like an interior designer means you will understand the importance of introducing different textures to your bedroom. Small touches such as adding rugs to a hardwood floor or throws and cushions to your bed will increase the feeling of cosiness in your bedroom. 

You can create an air of opulence and indulgence by bringing different textures to the room. A velvet tub chair or large cable knit throw can make a huge difference. 

Armed with these tips there’s nothing holding you back from decorating your bedroom like an interior designer and creating the bedroom of your dreams.
