If you’re stumped on what size rug to choose to go underneath your bed, this guide from The Home Depot is a great resource. It suggests that you should have about 3-ft. of rug space around the bed. We didn’t have enough room for this in our bedroom, so we opted for a 6×9 boho rug with a fun pattern and tassels. It tucks in nicely under the foot of our bed.
A soothing gray and white color scheme, plus layers of texture, enhance this modern bedroom design by Kara Mann. The interior is outfitted with a custom bed and bench by JM Upholstery, which are covered in Rosemary Hallgarten alpaca.

In newer construction, drywall is normally hollow and supported by vertical 2x 4 wood beams (studs) that are 16” apart. If your bed is set up on a non-exterior wall, use a stud finder to mark where your bed’s wood wall beams are and cut out an alcove. Your new alcove may not be incredibly deep, but it may be all you need for small necessities like an alarm clock or some personal items.
Instead of sticking with plain white walls, considering another neutral that adds a subtle yet bold twist. "Responding to an unusual Y-shaped floor plan required a strategy to pull light from all directions to create a range of shifting light experiences: Moody and subtle to the south; bright and open to the east," explain the designers behind Arent & Pyke. For a moodier bedroom that isn't full-on dark, try a steel blue gray like this one. And then lighten things up with colorful linens and keep things streamlined with bright a white ceiling and modern bedside sconce.

Curtains add texture and a coziness to the space immediately. Just look at the above picture before we added the curtains to our master bedroom. There’s a huge difference, right?? I love these simple white sheer curtains with this modern black curtain rod. So here’s the deal, if you are sceptical about curtains, just give it a try when you are decorating your master bedroom. It’s not that big of an investment, so there’s not much of a risk here.

I like the picture and the canvas print quality is also good. However, it's definitely not easy to hang it out of the box. The instructions are not provided with the box. We have to look through the reviews to find the instructions also the tail of the nails is not easy to lift up. It would be good if the seller puts the screws and rings on the canvas and sends it. Anyway, the picture is up on the wall and it looks amazing.

When you're ready to buy bedroom furniture, start out with a floor plan and a measured drawing of the space. Furniture should fit the room it lives and this is particularly true for bedroom furniture. Don't choose a heavy, large bed and dresser for a small bedroom. If the ceiling is high, a tall headboard will help to visibly bring it down to size.


You want everything in your bedroom to exude comfort, and the color palette is no exception. Whether you're a fan of warm or cool shades, pick colors that you naturally gravitate toward and give you a sense of calm. This home in Mexico opted for organic colors like ocean blue and deep brown. The statement wall is painted with Patagonia by Comex and the Eames chair and ottoman are by Herman Miller.
Your small bedroom may be a blessing for a better night’s sleep. The American Sleep Association recommends keeping stimulating activities out of the bedroom. They warn that distractions like the TV, internet, and work can disrupt your sleep patterns. So, the less there is to do in your bedroom, the more sleep you set yourself up for. How’s that for smart design?
If you like to have a bold bedroom decor, you can try the bold and vibrant painted color wall. The yellow and dark blue color will create a unique style yet bright vibe to the room. If you think that painted the wall all in a bold color is way too much, you can paint it near the headboard of the bed. Complete the decor with the cabinets to both sides of the bed.

For a Silicon Valley family's woodland retreat—sans the rustic implications of a cabin in the woods—architect Cynthia Wang and designer Jamie Bush conjured a completely new take on the country house that brings urban cool to Sierra, Nevada. The minimally-decorated bedrooms feature built-in wooden closets and a desk to keep from eating into the floorspace with hefty furnishings.
Although the words "contemporary" and "modern" are often used interchangeably, they are not the same. Modern refers to a specific decorating style that first arose in the 1920s and became extremely popular as it modified into mid-century modern during the 1950s and 1960s. Contemporary refers to the popular decorating styles at any given time. As mid-century modern is currently very contemporary, the words have become synonymous.

Outfit your bedroom with beautiful and luxurious fabrics. There's nothing that adds comfort to a bedroom like beautiful linens. Don't buy sheets that are less than 100 percent cotton or linen with high thread counts of 350 or more. For sheets that feel like they came from a 5-star hotel, send them to the dry cleaner for professional washing and pressing, which doesn't cost much, but creates a crisp smoothness worthy of the Ritz.
If you want to make a fast impression in any bedroom decor, then paint. Did we say that already? ;0 This room was done by ‘HGTV‘ viewer CvilleJanice..This bedroom is simple and sweet, and it’s because of that awesome blue on the walls! Ok, her DIY headboards (she used paint to update those as well!) and pretty quilts are also major players. But can you see how easy it is to makeover a bedroom, just with paint?

Out of every space in a home, your bedroom is without a doubt the most personal. Even though it's an area many of your guests may never actually see, it still deserves a great deal of attention. It's where you recharge, reflect on the day, and even spend time reading a book, so it only makes sense for it to feature the right color palette and furnishings. And let’s not forget that it also has to showcase your design style accurately and complement the overall aesthetic that’s reflected in other areas of your home.
