If you’re reading this, you are probably looking to change your bedroom decor into something completely different. The simple tips ahead can help you build on what you have and get more out of your bedroom space.
•Since you probably do more than sleep in your bedroom, its a good idea to create a reading nook with some reading space for those days you just want to read or relax.
To avoid using your chair as somewhere to throw clothes; get some smart storage for your clothes and books, keeping the area uncluttered and clear all the times.

A small bookcase, or desk, works well to keep things off the floor or your reading chair. Bedroom side tables can come in all shapes and sizes from the traditional to the very practical.
Find a chair that is practical seating and good-looking. Maybe a bench at the end of your bed, or under a window, might be perfect.
•Your combination of colors, for balance and contrast, are important in your bedroom. Picking the right shades impact how you sleep and relax. Pillows, wall decor and accents can instantly change the look of your room. Look for a color scheme that creates and inspires a specific mood; giving your room personality.
Do you want a romantic bedroom – then go with red, black or other warm colors. On the other hand, if you’re looking for simple relaxation, use green, blue and brown as your main focus and paint the ceiling a light color, to keep it looking natural. This canopy is made using two rods and a piece of reversible fabric.
•A blank wall is the perfect opportunity add personality and create a look that is completely different. Here’s how you can create a wall gallery including art, photographs or paintings to ground the room and create a feature. You can find wall gallery frame sets here, so you can forget about measuring and fitting frames together. There’s a huge variety of shapes, sizes colors and styles.
If you are looking to create something more romantic or a softer look, then creating a bed canopy is easy to install and a glamorous feature, with added layers of textured, sheer or romantic fabrics. Make certain your bed linen is in keeping with your canopy fabric in color and tone… no flannelette with rich taffeta or silks! (if you are crazy about flannelette, try linens or cotton on your canopy!)
A television is not exactly art, so find a way of making it look like its part of the furniture or hide it in a cabinet. You can place photos or art around it so it doesn’t sit alone on a wall, or place it in a cabinet that is keeping with your other furniture.
• Good lighting is vital in a bedroom. Lamps, chandeliers and wall sconces add decoration as well as mood lighting to your natural lighting.There are so many different styles to choose from!
Sheer curtains and mirrors help to add more light to your bedroom. Placing a large mirror near a large window, will make the room feel larger and reflect more light int the darker corners of your bedroom.
