How to Decorate a Bedroom to Create a Relaxing Haven

If you’re keen to give your bedroom décor a refresh, there’s plenty of decorating ideas for bedrooms to take inspiration from. We spend a lot of time sleeping and relaxing in our bedroom, so it’s essential to create a space that’s not only functional but also effortlessly cosy and comfortable. No matter the size or shape of your room, find an interior style you love with Neville Johnson.

Go for cool and contemporary, or stick with a few timeless decorating ideas. If you’re starting with a blank canvas, the possibilities are endless when it comes to how to decorate your bedroom.

Bedroom decoration inspiration

A good start is to have an overall theme or style in mind before you begin. This could be an idea like modern monochromes or something more neutral.  If you’re lacking inspiration, here are some of our best simple bedroom decorating ideas:

Select a subtle colour scheme

You want to create an oasis of calm in your bedroom, for sleep-friendly bedrooms, it’s best to avoid shades that are too bold or too bright.

Always measure!

An easy way to avoid a disaster is to measure your room before you start looking at furniture. At Neville Johnson, millimeter precision is key when it comes to designing your dream bedroom.

Add luxury with plush fabrics

Whether a soft velvet headboard or a brushed cotton bedding set, selecting luxurious fabrics will instantly make a space feel more inviting.

Decorate your ceiling

Your bedroom is one of the few places in your home where you look up at the ceiling. Make it a feature by painting it.

Layer up your lighting

Having a range of lighting solutions is perfect for adding ambience. As well as a pendant ceiling light, pick out some side sconces or attractive bedside table lamps with warm white or soft yellow bulbs.

How to decorate a small bedroom

If you’ve got less floor and wall space to play with, you’ll want to be more considerate with how you decorate. Small bedroom design, whether a spare room or your master, should aim to be both functional and welcoming.

Having a smaller room means you need to pay close attention to how every inch of the space is used. Figure out what the most vital pieces of furniture you need are. If you haven’t got room for full-size bedside tables, floating shelves or mini stools work just as well.

over bed storage

Smaller rooms usually have fewer light sources. If yours only has one tiny window, you’ll want to look specifically at bedroom decorating ideas that can solve this. For example, try choosing lighter paint tones and avoiding dark blocks of colour. Mirrors are also great for bouncing light around, while floor lamps can brighten up the space at different times of the day.

Bespoke fitted bedroom furniture is another fantastic way to make the most of a room with smaller dimensions. At Neville Johnson, our design consultants work with you to create storage solutions that match your needs and taste.

“I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone”

A real easy process, I would really recommend Neville Johnson to anyone. From the first phone call through to a very skilled fitter (who had to go above and beyond with our old house not having one straight line in it) it was all so easy. We couldn’t be happier that we chose to use Neville Johnson.

“Utterly professional”

From the initial contact with the company to the completion and installation everything was utterly professional; we have no hesitation in recommending the company to anybody. We are so pleased, that Neville Johnson is returning to install a new staircase!

“Hugely admired by family and friends”

The room is transformed and has been hugely admired by family and friends. I was pleasantly surprised by the attentive and courteous client care – everything went according to plan and nothing seemed too much trouble. They were in regular contact before and after the installation. I would highly recommend Neville Johnson to anyone wanting to transform a room.

From contacting the company to the point where the cupboards were fitted I was impressed by the whole process. The initial salesperson that visited was knowledgeable and helpful. I would certainly use Neville Johnson again and highly recommend this company.

“I cannot recommend this company enough”

I cannot recommend this company enough. From first contact we received very high quality service. We were informed as to everything that was going on, which was backed up by the necessary paperwork, plans and phone calls. The fitter was competent and the work he did we can’t fault.

Mrs K Holroyd, Wrexham

“The staircase has transformed our living space”

From our initial enquiry to the completion of our staircase, we have found all the members of the team at Neville Johnson to be very helpful, courteous and professional in all our dealings.
