How to Decorate Bedroom Walls in 2024

Posted by Jennifer Bell on 30th Nov 2023

The bedroom often gets neglected when you’re decorating your home. After all, only a few people get to see it compared to your living room, right? Your first instinct may be to spend more time in the public spaces, invest in art and hangings for the kitchen and dining room. This doesn’t need to be the case. The bedroom is your personal space where you can unwind and be yourself.

In short, it should be the coziest of all the rooms and the one place with fixtures and art that reflect your style and personality. It’s easier than you may imagine if you focus on one space at a time.

1.Try Out Some Wall Art

We all know that blank walls make any space dull, but did you know why? Well, as it turns out, empty and white walls have a detrimental effect on our psyche because they make it impossible to interact with our surroundings.

This emotional emptiness makes us feel down and uninspired when we sit in a room with blank walls. Try adding some life and color to your space with bedroom wall art.

The key to choosing suitable wall art is to consider your interests keenly. Your choice needs to be deeply personal to find the right bedroom wall art that makes the space truly your own. This can include pictures of your family or loved ones or something abstract that strikes just the right chords within you. It might even be the push you needed to try a little DIY painting.

You should also consider the overall theme and style you want for your bedroom when choosing wall art. Just because you like a particular piece of art, like one with a massive bronze frame, doesn’t mean it’s right for your bedroom. Instead, try colors that complement each other and, most of all, find something that fits with your personality.

2.Add Wallpaper

Where wall art provides a splash of color to your bedroom walls, your entire wall can be a canvas if you apply wallpaper. You can change the look and feel of your whole bedroom if you know how to choose the right bedroom wall art design.

The first thing to consider is color, as this will have an impact on your mood. For example, warm colors like reds and yellows liven up the room, while soft, cool colors such as blues give a sense of tranquility. Bedroom wall art can also come in different designs like floral or striped, which can also impact the overall mood of your bedroom.

To make wallpapers even more effective at decorating your bedroom, experiment with light to achieve different results. For instance, if you find your room uncomfortably dark even during the day, consider brightly colored wallpapers that will reflect light in the whole room and make your wall art pop.

Choosing a particular color can also affect the perceived size of the room. So if you feel like your bedroom is small, bright colors will make it feel bigger, while dull colors can make a large bedroom feel cozier. Specific patterns and art pieces can also make the room seem taller or wider depending on the effect you want to achieve.

3.Switch to Blinds

Just like empty spaces with no wall art can dampen our moods, dark rooms make us feel the same way. This is why natural sunlight is important to your overall bedroom design. This is significantly impacted by the orientation of your bedroom and window design.

Although you can’t completely change the design of your bedroom windows, you can still benefit from the proper window shading. Windows with internal blinds tend to let in more sunlight than other types of shades. Moreover, they are far easier to clean, meaning that you can reduce the time you typically take to dust your bedroom.

4.Decorate with Plants

Beyond wall art, adding plants to your bedroom is a great way to add a pop of color to the space and improve the overall aesthetic. Plants are best used as accents on the edge of the dresser or in the corner by the window. Be sure to coordinate the pots and plant hangers with the colors and design of your bedroom.
