These 15 Bedroom Makeover Ideas Will Transform Your Bedroom

I absolutely love staycations at 5-star hotels. The soft bedding, the tranquility, the delicious room service meals…

But why not experience this comfort in our own bedrooms at home?

My posts Posh Hotel Bedroom Ideas, and, How To Make Your Bed Like A Luxury Hotel explored the concept of luxury hotelesque makeovers at home. And today’s post continues this fabulous theme.

But before you start your room makeover, there are styling tips to keep in mind before your makeover.

1. Pick Your Design Style

Your bedroom should reflect your personality and personal style. This room should also influence relaxation thanks to its calming ambiance.

  • Do you like minimalist interiors with sleek, smooth, and clean lines? Go for minimal or modern decor.
  • Are you a fan of bohemian decor? Bring that look into your bedroom with mix-matched bedding and natural textures. You can also have mixed patterns and colors.
  • If you like the look of piled-on colors, animal prints and bold furniture, maximalist style may be more your taste.
  • If vintage furniture, pale color palettes with a feminine feel that pair perfectly with whitewashed floors and walls, and glamorous chandeliers appeal to you, go for a shabby chic or Grand Millennial style.
  • Love the beach and want to bring the coast inside? Neutrals like whites paired with beige to mimic the sand, pops of blues to resemble the water and light sheer fabrics will surely get the coastal design vibe across.
  • Or do you love something modern and almost minimalist, with lots of neutrals, but with more warm and inviting textures of wood, stone and wool? If yes, then, Organic Modern is more your style!

Not sure which design style is right for you? I’ve made it easy for you!

2. Choose Your Colors

To give your bedroom a fresh look, you want to choose the colors to work with, and those you don’t want to incorporate. This will influence the overall look and ambiance in your bedroom.

Neutral colors like soothing ice blues, cream whites, soft grays, and beige feel like fresh air when you walk into the room.

They add an ethereal, dreamy quality to every space but also offer a ton of versatility, making them particularly well-suited for the bedroom.

Choosing your colors allows you to come up with a color palette, featuring colors that blend well.

Many decorators take a minimalist approach with color and add pops of color just to bring life to the room. A comforting color palette is what you need to fall asleep quicker.

Tired of white paint?  A white bedroom can look light, airy, and pretty when done right, But sometimes, you want a bit more.

You can paint your walls any color, or create a unique gallery wall.

Bring in furniture, fabric, and bedding that features your favorite colors. And to inject a punch of extra style into your bedroom, start layering items with texture, mixing fabrics, and switching up your color scheme seasonally. This will take it to the next level.

Pro Tip:  When planning a room makeover, follow the 60:30:10 interior design rule. Choose one dominant color to fill about 60% of the space (ie the walls). You’ll find that most designers choose a neutral as their dominant hue because it can be built upon easily to create your preferred atmosphere. Then, select a secondary and accent hue(s). A secondary color should fill about 30% of the room while accents take about 10%. This rule creates a balance in your décor, ensuring your room is neither under-stimulated nor overstimulated.

3. Consider the Size & Layout of Your Room

The size and layout of your room will determine what space you have to work with. It will also affect the utilization of the space in regard to furniture arrangement.

For instance, will you need room for a large closet or a home office in your bedroom?

The most common bedroom layouts include:

  • Small and narrow bedrooms are roomy enough for just a bed. This layout needs one who can maximize the small room without overpowering the room. Multi-functional furniture will serve you best. Think beds with hidden storage.
  • Full-size master bedrooms have enough space for a queen or king-size bed. You have space for bedside tables and lamps that extend to the majority of the wall, and a dresser and chair on the opposite wall. As well, a footbed bench.
  • Extra-long master suites. Due to the large space available, master suites often come with a walk-in closet, so forego the dresser in favor of more comfortable furniture. A reading corner, a desk, a bench, and a large plant can all help fill in awkward corners.


4. Clean your Space from Unnecessary Things and Clutter

Remove all items lying on tabletops including paperwork into the bin and arrange what should be, place dirty clothes in the hamper and neatly arrange your wardrobe and declutter your wardrobe if you have too.

Clean the floors, windows, and change to fresh curtains, sheets, rugs, and bed linens.

5. Make Necessary Decor Purchases

In some cases, you might want to bring in new items for your bedroom after decluttering and considering the kind of style you want to achieve.

You can buy some new items and decors from the store or you can make your own.

Sometimes, you might just need to re-arrange your bedroom’s furniture for a new look altogether.

15 Bedroom Makeover Ideas That Will Transform Your Bedroom!

1. Refresh Your Walls

If you’ve experienced the feeling of looking around your bedroom and no longer being satisfied or inspired by its interior, there are quick ways to refresh your space and give it a new look.

Your walls would be a good start!

You can repaint your walls, or create an accent wall by adding wallpaper.

2. Upgrade Your Bed

The bed should be the first thing you need to consider when arranging the furniture in the bedroom, whether small or large.

Once you know where it should be placed, arranging the rest of your furniture will be a whole lot easier.

Choosing a premium quality bed can improve the quality of your sleep immeasurably when compared to poor quality beds.

This improved level of rest can actually have a big impact on the way we learn and how we store memories.

6. Add Pillows & Throw Pillows

Having the right bed pillows is not only comforting, but they also play an important role in keeping the upper body in alignment during sleep, relieving pressure, and counterbalancing the points in the body.

Throw pillows are also low-investment accessories that can elevate the look of your space, add texture and color too.

When decorating with pillows, put the larger pillows at the back and layer with smaller sizes in the front. And to save more, keep the same pillow inserts and buy pillow covers to swap whenever you want.

7. Have Bedside Lighting

Pros recommend light layering in the bedroom to keep the comforting ambiance. While dark bedrooms are great for sleeping, they hinder other activities like dressing or reading.

On the other hand, bright lighting can affect the relaxing environment- some people can’t sleep in a brightly lit room.

Since no single fixture can effectively serve all bedroom lighting needs, a combination of controlled task lighting and gentle ambient light is recommended: think wall-mounted lamps, pendant lamps, or a personalized nightstand.

Pro Tip: If your bedroom is very large or your mattress is a king, two bedside lamps give better balance, regardless of whether you’re the only one using the room or not.’

8. Invest In A High-Grade Dresser

The next thing to go inside the room after your bed is the dresser. Invest in a high-quality dresser, because, like the bed, your dresser should be a focal and statement piece in the room.

A beautiful dresser allows storage space for your clothes, and optimizing the space is key to ensuring your space doesn’t look cluttered. Organize it well and it will make a style statement.

Also, remember to keep enough space between the dresser and your closet so that you can open all drawers and doors.

In a small bedroom, and you have less space, tuck your chest or dresser in the closet to have more room space.

9. Stand-out Curtains

Luxe window treatments add richness to your bedroom interiors.

While neutral and minimalist curtains or draperies will add subtle and sophisticated texture to your room, boldly colored curtains inject a much-desired pop of color into your room.

If you particularly have bold bedroom furniture, wall art, or bedding in a bold color, tie the room together by matching at least one color to your curtains.

10. A Statement Piece of Art

Wall art can infuse personality to your bedroom’s decor, and create a focal point too. Add a great piece to your walls and be sure to keep the theme of your artwork in line with the decor you have chosen for a streamlined look.

13. A Seating Area

Smaller bedroom furniture such as ottomans, benches, stools, and chairs provide extra seating, as well as a place to keep possessions like coats.

A bench placed at the end of your bed elevates the look of your space while giving you a place to sit while putting on your shoes in the morning.

If space allows, use a stylish accent chair to create a small seating area in your bedroom to sit, read, and unwind.

14. Bring In The Green

Houseplants bring a splash of green indoors, thus, we can’t ignore bringing them in the bedroom too.

Lavender is great, lady palm and Areca palm grow tall and make a statement in your bedroom, and also lush ferns make such great hanging gardens!

15. A Tech-Free Zone, vs Tech-Inspired Zone

You may be already spending too much time on your gadgets and this may be affecting your sleeping habits. For a change, embrace a technology-free bedroom and watch how this changes your sleeping habits.

It will also improve your well-being and relationship with yourself- if you journal and pray before bed- and with your partner too. In short, a technology-free bedroom will make you a happier person.

Not ready to give up technology?

Then maybe you are like me and you want to actually incorporate technology into your bedroom MORE!

My husband built our bed and kitted it out with custom tech, such as:

  • built-in side tables that have hidden phone charger pads (so you can charge your phone simply by setting the phone down on the table)
  • Modern multi-plug outlets built into the side tables (like hotels) that allow you to charge things with different USB cables
  • Nautical-like knob dimmer switches built into the headboard
