Top 6 Bedroom Ideas to Personalize Your Space

Looking to upgrade your bedroom? These ideas will help you personalize your bedroom space, from chalkboard paint, furniture, and black wallpaper to trendy couches, area rugs, chandeliers, and lamps.

1. Create a Bedroom Wall That's Fun & Interactive

Express yourself in a different way each night of the week. Scribble or sketch on your walls using whiteboard or chalkboard paint, or use corkboard to post photos and practical reminders. Add a different inspirational quote every day or create a collage of your favourite things — the possibilities are endless.

2. Find Furniture That Fits Your Lifestyle

Do you love to read or surf the web before falling asleep? Then you’ll need a bed frame that comes with a handy bookshelf. Living in a bachelor apartment with small square footage? Instantly convert your bedroom into a living room with futons and Murphy beds. For Feng Shui fans and self-professed neat freaks, cut down on your clutter and keep your floors clear with timeless storage beds.

3. Play with Wallpaper to Create a PolishedLook

Think of your bedroom as a blank canvas — try mixing neutrals or white wallpaper for extra contrast against bright, colourful artwork, photography, or posters. If you’re feeling more rebellious, black wallpaper is a bold aternative that adds a rich, dramatic effect, especially when there’s a bit of texture to your wall.

Tip: Add trendy patterns to the back of your bookcase for an instant upgrade.

4. Step it Up with Attractive Area Rugs

Be kind to your feet and hardwood flooring. Area rugs are comfortable, chic, and protect against everyday wear and tear. This bedroom fundamental will warm your toes during chilly fall and winter months, and even absorb or reduce noise in your home. Accessorize with rugs as a room divider or as part of your colour palette to tie bedroom elements together.

5. Add a Couch or Desk for a Multi-Functional Space

Turn your sleeping quarters into a personal sanctuary. In larger bedrooms or open concept layouts, place a loveseat or ottoman at the end of the bed as a footboard. Floating desks are ideal for small bedrooms and can make cozy wall-mounted study nooks.

6. Let Your Personal Style Shine with Chandeliers or Lights

Proper bedroom lighting is about layers, from floor and table lamps to spotlights and recessed lighting, topped off with hanging pendants and chandeliers. Choose what speaks to your personal taste, whether you’re looking for a rustic chandelier or a glamorous table lamp. For gadget lovers, add smart lighting for more customization.
