Are your creative juices flowing as of late?
Then consider stylizing your master bedroom!
Why the master bedroom, you might ask?
In a bedroom, you can “play” with space and make it your own. It is your bedroom, after all!
Your options to bring your bedroom to life are limitless. In fact, there are so many possibilities that you have no idea where to start first.
That’s why we’ve come up with a list of 11 creative and unique ideas for you to consider.
A few of these decorative ideas should stand out. And when they do, you’ll have a fantastic time putting together the perfect retreat!
1. Create a Rustic Bedroom Retreat
Bring the outdoors inside your room by incorporating rustic elements.
A wooden bench and country-styled accents are two decorative items to include.
To make your apartment warm and inviting, infuse plenty of raw natural elements.
This no-fuss style is perfect for highlighting elements like muted hues and comfortable furnishings.
With this type of rustic design work, you’ll be eager to get back to your apartment after work ASAP!
2. Invite a Touch of Whimsy
If you’re yearning for a touch of magic, incorporate some whimsical elements. Hang some butterflies from your ceiling or have a bedside table with fun shapes on the surface.
You’re going to have a grand time placing each fanciful element.
There are all sorts of whimsical decorations you can add, such as:
You might not want your apartment looking like Alice and Wonderland. But if a touch of whimsy is what you’re after, these should give you some fun ideas!
3. Make Room for a Dressing Table
A dressing table, otherwise known as a vanity, is a beautiful addition to any room.
You’ll feel like an old-timey film star, sitting down on a chair in front of the vanity each morning.
And it can also hold some of the essentials, such as a watch, jewelry, or cell phone charging station.
Bedroom vanities are beautiful pieces of furniture that make an excellent focal point.
If having a vanity that can also double as a desk is more your speed, get a multi-functional vanity instead.
4. Take Advantage of Vertical Space
You may have limits on the amount of room there is, but there’s a solution. Make use of the vertical space in your bedroom!
There are many ways you can store more belongings by being inventive with wall space.
One idea is to put a tall and leaning bookshelf against the wall. Or have a few floating shelves.
You’ll love how much more room there is as you take advantage of the vertical wall space!
5. Travel the World
If you’ve traveled the world (or even if you haven’t), having a travel theme in your bedroom is another idea.
You may have traveled to a few different countries, such as France and Scotland. If so, adding in some travel pieces would look fabulous.
Even if you didn’t bring anything back from your travels, there’s still a lot of travel decor available.
Look for a vintage map or globe to place on the bedside table. Or, place either of these items on a chest at the end of your bed.
Looking at these items will make you feel as if you’re in another country — ready to set out on some new adventures!
6. Style it Up With a Headboard
A headboard is an easy way to bring some personality to your room.
Upholstered headboards are easy on the eyes. Plus, they’re comfortable should you choose to lean against one while on the bed. (Just make sure it’s secure so you won’t break anything!)
Other types of headboards are wooden, metal, and even have a bookcase! Select one that you like best, and that will match the rest of the decorative elements.
There’s no doubt having a headboard in your bedroom will further complement the space!
7. Go for a Daybed
If you don’t mind having a smaller bed, a daybed might be the ticket.
Lean it against your wall so that you can have the option to use it as a sofa. You can add a television to your bedroom and take advantage of the extra space.
You may opt not to have a TV stand and television in your room. Instead, add a bookshelf, reading chair, or whatever else you’d like.
Now, there’s so much more space to play with in your room!
8. Pile on the Pillows
No one can live without pillows in their bedroom, so make sure there are plenty of them!
Select unique pillows that will add comfort and style. They should match your surrounding decor. Or, if you’d like them to become focal points, add bright pillows.
A pop of pink or yellow might be the colors you need to give the room more character.
9. Add Personality With Playful Wallpaper
If you think your white walls are boring, jazz them up by applying wallpaper.
Removable wallpaper is best in an apartment because it won’t cause damage. Plus, if you change your mind, you can swap it out for a different design later!
When selecting playful wallpaper, look for one in a fun pattern, such as blue marble.
We’re confident whatever wallpaper you decide on will make quite the statement!
10. Stay Minimalistic
If minimalism is what you seek, nix the clutter, and stick with the basics.
Sometimes having a minimalistic room is easier said than done. Work hard, though, and you’ll appreciate not having to deal with a messy space.
Have very few elements in your master bedroom except for the bare essentials.
After weeding down your belongings and decor to the basics — don’t add more things.
To keep a minimalistic room, make a habit of only having a small number of belongings!
11. Select One Color You Adore
Selecting a color you adore will make your bedroom feel like home.
Now, you might have more than one color in your bedroom. Even so, there should be one color that you want to be the primary color.
Go with turquoise if it’s a shade that stands out to you. Add a pop of color in the form of a velvet turquoise pillow.
Choose colorful elements like this, and your bedroom will look so rich and inviting!
Decorating your bedroom is something that can bring out the creative person in you.
This is your chance to infuse elements that mean something to you and bring the space to life.
Think carefully about what type of designs you’d like to have in your bedroom. Even though you can always swap them out later, creating a theme now will make it easier.
Don’t be afraid to take some risks as you think outside the box. By the time you finish working your magic, your bedroom will look incredible!
