Bold Bedroom Furnishings: Switch up the Nightstands

Frame your bed with a set of interesting and sculptural side tables instead of nightstands. This is a great way to give your bedroom decor a new look. When selecting bedroom furnishings, look for tables that are at least the height of your mattress or they will look too small. Then, add a pair of tall decorative lamps.

Bedroom Design Ideas: Create a Custom Headboard

If you have a platform bed, create a custom headboard by simply applying a material to the wall behind the bed. In this bedroom, we applied a wood paneling to the wall behind the bed to create a custom headboard. The dark stained wood finish complements the platform bed color, and ties the bedroom and the nightstands together visually. You can make your headboard the full height of the wall or stop it part way up. To determine the minimum height for your headboard, prop up your pillows and measure 6”-8” (15-20 cm) above that.

Bedroom Design Ideas: Create a Cozy Corner

Beds can make a bedroom layout feel very linear and square. You can prevent this by placing a comfortable upholstered chair in one of the corners. This softens the corner of the room and encourages circulation. If there's room, add a small side table, some artwork and an ottoman to make it a cozy and inviting place to relax.

Bedroom Paint Colors: Try a Dark Wall Color

When it's time to choose bedroom paint colors, try a dark wall color for a bold bedroom update. Darker walls create an intimate and inviting feeling in a room. They are great for living rooms, libraries, dining rooms and bedrooms. When you use a dark color on the walls, keep the floor and ceiling finishes lighter. The blue wall color in this bedroom highlights the bed, making it the focal point of the room. Add some throw pillows in a similar color to complete the bedroom design.
