Starting a room from scratch can be very daunting. Especially when it’s your main bedroom suite. This will be the room that you switch off in at the end of the day and wake up to first thing in the morning (no pressure!) But don’t stress - we’re here to help you start decorating your bedroom.
Once you agree on a budget for the room, the next important thing to consider is how you will use the space. Obviously you’ll be needing a bed to sleep in but what else? Would you like a section of the room to do some morning stretches? Perhaps a seating area is on your wish list to get a bit of privacy from the rest of the house?!
Once you understand your goals for the bedroom design you can measure the space and map out a floor plan to see what’s feasible. Don’t forget to leave plenty of space to walk through the room and around furniture. You’ll then have the perfect starting point to consider the bedroom design direction.
As we mentioned, when designing a bedroom layout you first need to think about what your goals are for the space. You also need to be realistic with yourself about how much space is available. Here are some factors to consider when planning a bedroom layout:
Start with the largest and most expensive items of bedroom furniture first, most obviously - the bed. Next, depending on the space either side of the bed you can think about your bedside tables.
Your wardrobe and other clothes storage should go next as this will take up a large portion of space. Think about fitted bespoke options to make the most of the space available.
You can then get a feel for whether you can add any other pieces of furniture to your bedroom like a desk or seating area. Try not to cram too much in - you don’t want to feel cramped.
Clever storage is key to a successful bedroom design. Take a look at your current system...which areas do you find the hardest to keep tidy? If drawers just aren’t working for you and they just become a dumping ground, then perhaps allow for more hanging space in your new room?
Is there anything that typically gets flung about and doesn’t have a designated place? Make sure to find these items a home in the new design.

The space under your bed is prime real estate for storage. Choose a bed on legs so that you can fit storage boxes underneath or choose an ottoman with storage if you’d prefer to have it all out of site.
Shelves are your best friend to store bits and bobs and get them off the floor. Make sure to be curated about what you put there though as it will be on display. Opt for opaque boxes to hide items that need to be in easy reach but aren’t pretty enough to display.
Having said that, there’s a lot of psychology behind colour and different hues have been proven to put you in a different mood. For a calming space then neutral paint colours always work well. Add interest to the scheme using different textures and tones of your chosen neutral so that it doesn’t look flat.
If you’d like to go for a bolder colour scheme in your bedroom design then look to muted, softer hues that have warmer undertones like sage or moss green or a dusky pink.

Lighting is crucial to creating the right mood in your bedroom. Make use of different levels of light so that you can adjust depending on whether you’re carrying out a task like putting on makeup, (where you’ll need a crisper, cleaner light) or whether you’re wanting a relaxing warmer light for falling asleep.
For a relaxing mood, colour temperature is key: opt for warm white (<2700K) for your bedroom. This will replicate the soft calming atmosphere, similar to candlelight.
Table lamps are no longer the only option for bedside lighting. Sometimes they might not actually be feasible if you have limited space on your bedside table. There are many wonderful and creative alternatives to try instead, and you don’t even need an electrician!

Small bedrooms can be wonderful and many actually prefer to have a smaller space that feels much cosier and warmer.
There’s a lot you can do with a small room, it just requires a bit more creativity and thinking.
Storage is key so that you’re not making the small bedroom feel even smaller with clutter!
Scale down the furniture so that the space isn’t swamped by large clumpy pieces. Also opt for furniture with legs and perhaps even glass tops so that the eye can see through them giving the illusion of space.
When painting a small bedroom it can be tempting to paint it all white to make it feel larger, and yes of course this can work well to give the illusion of space. However there are times where it works well to embrace the intimate size of a small room, particularly in a bedroom where you want to feel comfortable and snug. Embrace dark and bold colours to achieve this.
If you can’t go out - go up! Use full height storage as well as shelves to make the most of this unused space for storage.
