The bedroom is not just another room of your house. It should be a peaceful retreat for you. Your bedroom is the place where you will forget the ups and downs of your entire day and refresh yourself for tomorrow with sleep, so it is only right that your bedroom should be visually stunning, elegant and as comfortable as possible.

When it comes to decorating the bedroom, you should be more careful than with other rooms of your house, because if the decor is too flashy or stimulating, you are setting yourself up for sleepless nights.

Here is a list of ten unique bedroom decoration ideas that you might not have heard of. These ideas will help you choose your bedroom decor and possibly prevent you from making any foolish mistakes.

1. Choose a theme

The idea of a bedroom with a theme may be common in Western society, but it is a unique idea in many third world countries and in Eastern culture. If you are thinking of redecorating your bedroom, choosing a theme is a great option.

If the bedroom is for a child, you can decorate the bedroom in a princess theme for a girl or a superhero theme for a boy. Why? A theme is a powerful unifying device that creates a soothing effect if you get your theme right. If the bedroom is for adults, don’t be pompous or you might look cheesy and ridiculous.

2. Himalayan salt lamp

For those who haven’t seen these lamps, they are actually made of a block of pure Himalayan salt; a bulb is then placed inside. A well-decorated Himalayan salt lamp with a sophisticated shape can add a visual “wow” factor, and the lamps have many health benefits as well.

For instance, Himalayan pink salt lamps are said to be able to lift mood, increase blood flow, prevent allergy symptoms, and facilitate better and more comfortable sleep. If you are wondering how this is possible, some explain the effects by saying that the lamps release abundant negative ions. Negative ions attract harmful particles (primarily positively charged), balance them and mitigate their adverse effects. Some say that these negative ions also stimulate the flow of oxygen in the brain, keeping you mentally and physically refreshed. The Himalayan Salt Lamp should be placed close to electronic appliances.

3. Photographs

Photographs can really add to the beauty of your bedroom, but they can impede the beauty of your bedroom as well, depending upon the types of photos you use. While it is common sense that family portraits and pictures are to be given priority on the walls of most rooms, they are an absolute no-no for a bedroom.

It is generally believed that the photos you hang on the wall of your bedroom should have as little emotional load as possible. You can use other elegant and calming photos. However, if you insist on hanging a family picture, be sure to use one which doesn’t remind you of specific people. You don’t want to think of your beloved while you are going to sleep, do you?

4. Rug

How would you feel if you woke up in the cold morning and stepped out of bed onto the cold floor? Not so happy. Everybody loves taking their first step of the day on a comforting and cushy surface. The rug is a vital part of the decor of a bedroom because it sets the tone for the entire space.

Since you want to keep your bedroom amiable to sleep, don’t go for a flashy or complex patterned rug. Instead, use a light-colored rug to maintain a peaceful environment. Good materials for bedroom rugs may vary from cotton to wool.

In terms of the rug size, the bigger the rug is, the better your bedroom will look. If you have a carpet on your bedroom floor and are feeling reluctant about buying a rug, I would advise you to go against your instinct and give it a try because a simple rug can make a big difference.

5. Tape around the bed

Many of you might cringe thinking of using tape in your bedroom, but it is not that bad. A simple line of artistic tape, when used in a bedroom, gives a perfect illusion that ceilings are higher. It would be prudent to use the tape just above the headboard.

Speaking of headboards, people normally use a classic bed frame for a headboard. In contrast, if you use a headboard that adds scenic beauty, it will contribute to the aesthetics of your bedroom.

6. Nightstand

A nightstand is not just visually attractive, it’s a necessity of every perfect bedroom. A nightstand ensures comfort before and after you have slept. You can put a glass of water, lamps and even plants on the nightstand, which gives you the feeling of home.

The nightstand doesn’t necessarily have to be exorbitant and stunning. An ordinary nightstand can add to a great deal to the beauty of a bedroom. It is important because it is the testament of your personal style.

7. Mattress

A bedroom might be furnished with expensive furniture and contain all the amenities in the world, but this won’t mean a thing if you can’t get a good night’s sleep. A good mattress is a must for a good night’s sleep because it keeps you cool and gives support to your lumbar region.

Your mattress should have an appropriate foundation height, must fit into your bedroom and must be congruous with the night tables and window sills.

8. Number of pillows

Too many pillows and your bed will look crowded. Too few pillows and it will seem like your bed isn’t a bed and your bedroom isn’t a bedroom at all. This will negatively affect the visual beauty of your bedroom.

Therefore, you should select the right number of pillows, which depends upon the size of your bed. The right number of pillows makes the bed more inviting and sumptuous. If you like having lots of pillows, you can always keep them in layers.

9. Add dramatic items

Items such as a theatrical chandelier, moody wall paint, or an oversized headboard add a sexy and dark glamour to your bedroom. Furthermore, you can hang dramatic artwork in your bedroom.

The best way to hang artwork is to have a midline at fifty-seven inches to sixty inches where the artwork is hung. Also, it is better to hang your paintings at the center rather than directly overhead. Adding visually dramatic items is a great way to decorate your bedroom.

10. Curtains

You have heard of using curtains on your windows or even on a door, but have you ever considered using curtains to hide empty space in an oversized bedroom? I didn’t think so. Yes, you can use curtains to conceal an unused space if your bedroom is too large. By doing so you will prevent your bedroom from looking empty.
