Bedroom designs should reflect personal styles while providing restorative sleep. Since bedrooms don’t receive as much foot traffic, they allow more luxurious furnishings choices to be placed there.

Studio Shamshiri created this bedroom using soothing hues of blue that offer restful restful atmosphere, complete with floating shelves for ample storage of bedside lamps and books.


Your choice of bedroom colors can have a dramatic impact on how it feels to live there, for instance calming colors such as blue and green can help induce relaxation, while vibrant hues like red can engender passion and excitement.

Before selecting paint shades for any room, it’s essential to take into account how they will appear under different lighting throughout the day and night. Organic textiles and their role in bedroom design shouldn’t be downplayed as well. A deep blue may look too dark in a south-facing room while light colors might overpower an east-facing bedroom – an online color calculator or planner can help visualize how various hues will look before committing.

Not only should the color be carefully considered when choosing bedroom flooring, but texture and pattern should also be given careful thought. As your bare feet will likely walk over it each morning, ensuring it feels comfortable underfoot is of equal importance – carpet, tile and hardwood are all wonderful choices to explore further.

Kids’ favorite characters and colors play an integral role in their bedroom decor. While letting your child select some items they find appealing, remember that their room needs to function as an area for sleeping as well. Therefore, try not allowing their decorations take over completely.

If you want your child’s bedroom to be an inviting and relaxing space, try pairing their favorite bright hues with neutrals and natural materials that add an air of maturity while still reflecting their individuality. This can create a truly inviting space without losing its personality!

Add character and flair to your child’s room by including eye-catching wall art or light fixtures that create an eye-catching focal point, drawing people’s attention and setting the scene for their rest of the space.

An ideal bedroom design creates a tranquil environment conducive to restful sleeping and relaxation. When revamping an existing bedroom or creating a new one, begin by drawing out a scale plan on graph paper or online planner – then start shopping around for furniture and decor to bring your vision to life!


Lighting can have a major effect on a bedroom space. Layering lights throughout can add depth, texture, and mood while providing for different tasks like reading or getting ready. There are various options for bedroom lighting including traditional table lamps, recessed ceiling lights, wall sconces with tape lights or decorative pendant lights to make an impactful statement in a bedroom setting.

The type of bulb you select can also have a dramatic impact on a room. Warm bulbs create an intimate ambience while cool bulbs give off an ambient glow. LED strips can also be used to highlight vaulted ceilings stylishly while shelving may incorporate lighting for further decorative effect.

Lighting in bedrooms is of particular significance because this is where people typically spend most of their time. As such, its illumination should promote relaxation and aid restful slumber compared to other spaces such as living and dining rooms – this allows you to get ready for bed without being overstimulated!

Bedrooms can also serve as an opportunity to showcase design elements that express your personal aesthetic. Consider adding wallpaper for a fun pop of color or pattern; decorate with books and trinkets to create an intimate reading nook, or hang framed artwork on the walls for display.

Add an eye-catching piece like a chair or ottoman to make the space more welcoming upon your return from work, as this can add that extra touch.

Bedroom layout is of critical importance when designing or renovating an existing space, whether new or renovated. When making decisions about furniture placement you must take into account such details as bed size, nightstands, dressers and wardrobes among other elements you plan on including in the room. Working with professional designer/architect can ensure that it works effectively to suit your lifestyle needs.


Bedrooms can quickly become overstuffed with dressers, nightstands, armoires and the bed itself; but an effective floor plan can help create space for everything while instilling peace and order. To begin planning your ideal space it’s advisable to begin with a scaled design on graph paper (or an online planner) that takes into account furniture placement and circulation before working with an architect or designer to add key pieces like feature chairs for working from home and desks for reading nooks to the basic floor plan.

As for storage solutions, consider selecting a combination of freestanding and built-in furnishings with maximum flexibility in mind. A bookcase can serve both as a headboard and room divider; additionally it provides space to display decor. A slatted wall shelf can store clothes and accessories boutique style, while a bar cart with just enough surface area to hold books can serve as an effective nightstand alternative.

Window treatments play a pivotal role in bedroom decor. They should offer privacy while still controlling light levels, complementing your color scheme perfectly.

Consider both the size and location of your closet when making decisions regarding size and location. For ease in getting dressed every morning, it should ideally open directly into your bedroom, providing easy access to getting ready. Creating a walk-through from bedroom to bathroom would be even better!

Consider what kind of flooring would best fit into your bedroom: carpet provides warmth and comfort underfoot while wood or vinyl tiles may offer more contemporary, clean looks. When building new bedrooms, consider adding an element of interest with patterned wallpaper or an eye-catching geometric floor tile design.

Your bedroom should be your sanctuary, so investing both time and energy to design one that brings joy is worth doing. These bedrooms demonstrate how simple, smart design is best used to maximize sleep space.


Your bedroom is one of the most intimate places in your home, providing you with a sanctuary to escape everyday life and recharge before facing another day’s challenges. It’s also where dreams about tomorrow emerge – so striking a balance between serene and chic should not be difficult with just the right combination of furniture and accessories.

Bright, vivid colors may tempt you, but they could actually prevent sleep. Instead, opt for soothing hues like soft whites, blues and pastels for creating a relaxing ambience in the bedroom.

Carpet can make for an elegant choice in the bedroom, especially if it features eco-friendly wool blend fibers with a light pile that won’t flatten as easily. Hardwood floors also make an attractive statement in bedrooms while offering warmth underfoot and providing comfort underfoot.

If you want to add some softness and comfort to your bedroom, combine the floor with an area rug specifically designed to trap dust and debris that accumulates over time. Wool rugs provide additional padding that feels nice underfoot without trapping heat.

As the bed is often the center of any bedroom, it’s essential that it fits proportionally with its surroundings. A king-sized mattress in a small bedroom could feel confining and restricting.

The amount of daylight a bedroom receives can have a huge effect on its color choices and design features, too. If the room faces north, for instance, cool tones will dominate early morning while southern exposure results in warmer tones in the afternoon.

Storage in the bedroom is of paramount importance, and selecting pieces that both look attractive and provide enough storage is paramount. A built-in closet provides plenty of hanging space, while dressers with drawers provide adequate space. Or get creative and add shelves and other decorative pieces for an individualized touch – such as this wooden blanket box and wall art add character to an otherwise functional room!
