How should I redecorate my bedroom?

If you’ve been wanting to redecorate your bedroom but aren’t sure where to start, we’ve got you covered. From popular trends to tips to keep the costs down, We Buy Any House have looked at some of their favourite styles!

1. Statement bed/headboard

In bedrooms across the country, we’re seeing designer beds being the centre of attention, and there’s no wonder when they look as beautiful as they do. Statement beds can be anything from a crushed velvet frame to ornate wooden carving with purple curtains, so it gives a lot of flexibility for every style.

These beds can be a pretty expensive purchase, so if you’re decorating on a lower budget, you can still achieve this trend; some are creating their own headboards and slotting them behind the bed, meaning you can make it as personalised as you like. Another popular choice is to paint a headboard onto the wall, catching the eye for minimal cost. With this, you can pick colours that complement your room and pick the shape that you like the most, from the classic rectangle to more of an arched style.

2. Exterior interiors

We’re seeing a lot of plants being welcomed into the home, especially in bedrooms of people who don’t have much outside space. This can be achieved in several ways, from actual plants to flower prints on wallpapers and bedspreads, providing a choice that will suit everyone.

The benefit of real plants in your bedroom comes with the air purifying qualities that a lot of plants have, providing clean air which can promote a more restful sleep as well as brightening the room up and giving it a more welcoming feel. For those who aren’t interested in real plants, we’re seeing a lot of succulent style ornaments, as well as fake ivy vines that can be wrapped around rooms and pair perfectly with strings of lights to make a peaceful atmosphere.

3. Minimalism

Minimalism has been a popular style for a long time, but it’s appearing much more regularly in bedrooms for several reasons. Spending more time at home has meant that a lot of people have struggled to keep the place clean, and going for a minimalist style reduces the amount of stuff that you’ve got, making it easier to stay on top of it.

It’s also a great choice in bedrooms of those who don’t sleep well, as it limits the amounts of distractions in the room allowing your mind to rest. Bedrooms have become home to a lot of items that can disrupt sleep, from games consoles and televisions to mobile phones, so approaching the room with a more minimal style removes these distractions and can offer a much better sleep quality.

4. Complimentary colours

Bedrooms are now seeing some stunning colour pairings to create a soft, welcoming environment, and is a perfect way to refresh a room without having to buy lots of new furniture for home and fittings. Some of the most popular pairings we’ve seen are –

  • Blush pink and sage green
  • White and charcoal grey
  • Baby blue and white
  • Grey and mustard yellow

These colour combinations strike a great balance of looking beautiful together while still being soft enough to be suitable for a bedroom – colours like black and red can work in other rooms, but can be a little harsh for bedrooms. For those who still want a bright colour without being too intense, feature walls are a good choice.

When it comes to decorating your bedroom, looking online for inspiration is a great way to collect ideas and find what works for you, designing your dream bedroom on any budget!
