When it comes to rest and relaxation, your bedroom is the most important space in your home, and taking the time to make it look and feel like a luxurious sanctuary will do wonders for your wellbeing.

Making over your bedroom couldn’t be easier, and as long as you have the basics already in place – like your bed and some functional yet beautiful bedroom furniture – the rest can be taken care of by making a few simple tweaks and additions. In fact, these easy updates can all be taken care of in less than one day – yet will transform your personal space into an opulent space that is all but fit for royalty.
Invest in a beautiful rug
One of the quickest and easiest ways to add warmth and sophistication to any bedroom, a high-quality rug will up the style factor in minutes – and the feeling of its thick, soft pile beneath your feet when you arise from bed each morning will have you hooked.
If you have a wooden floor, it’s a particularly essential touch, and by opting for complementary colours that are in keeping with your current colour scheme, the right rug will pull the entire room together with ease.
Display some art on your walls
Displaying art on your walls can be a great way to inject a good dose of style and personality into your bedroom, making you instantly feel right at home. Choose one or two statement pieces and hang them on opposite walls to add interest without going overboard.
For an even more personal feel, add some of your favourite photos into the mix. hellocanvas.co.uk offers some innovative magnetic hanging systems that are available in custom shapes – which means no need to drill holes or bang nails into your beautifully maintained walls, and a modern and edgy way to display some of your favourite memories.
Add a hanging light fixture
Poor lighting can quickly ruin the effect of even the most beautifully designed of bedrooms, so upgrading your fixtures and fittings can quickly transform your space, even when no other changes are made.
A statement chandelier or pendulum light – depending on the current style of your room – can go a long way, emulating the lighting of some of your favourite five-star luxury hotels and illuminating all of your favourite features of your room.
Make your bedside table a feature
Is your nightstand currently obscured from view thanks to a pile of books, night creams and magazines? If so then it’s time to make a change. Each piece of furniture in your room has a role to play when it comes to creating a luxurious overall feel, and there is no space for clutter on your surfaces.
Tidy away the items that are currently on it and pick out one or two carefully chosen items to display that will make a feature of it. Try a luxury candle or a small plant, and keep things as minimal as you can.
Add some greenery
On the subject of plants, adding some greenery to your bedroom can instantly make your space look more tasteful. Try a large feature pot plant placed on the floor by the window, or one or two succulents strategically arranged on your dressing table.
Plants don’t just look stylish – they also help to improve the air quality in your bedroom. Check out Pinterest for some inspiration on how to style them for the greatest impact and the most luxurious overall result.
