6 Tricks to Improve Your Bedroom Decor

There is no room in your house more personal and cozier than your bedroom. However, it is also a room that can become dull very easily if you do not make some improvements to it over time.

You can customize your bedroom decor in many ways to make it more comfortable, functional, and visually appealing. Here are some of the best tricks to improving any bedroom in your house.

Hang Up LED String Lights

A growing trend in the past few years has been to hang up LED string lights around your bedroom to both brighten up the space and add a pop of color and style. LED string lights are beautiful and unbelievably cheap. They are easy to hang up, and they come in a wide variety of colors. Some sets even allow you to remotely change the color of the lights and animate them to cycle through each color.

Install a Bed Frame with Drawers or Shelves

A great way to increase storage space in your room without sacrificing floor space is by getting a bed frame that has drawers or shelves installed in it. With enough storage space in your bed frame, you can remove your dresser and nightstands to make even more space on your floor.

Buy a Custom Mattress

Poor sleep quality negatively affects your mood, energy levels, stress levels and overall health. You may be able to sleep decently on a standard mattress, but the only way you will be able to get the best sleep possible is by buying a customized mattress. With a custom mattress, you will be able to select the materials, firmness levels for both sides, shape, size, and color of your mattress. If you are not sure what exactly you will need to create your perfect mattress, most manufacturers will provide you with guides and tests to help you determine what works best for your body.

Hang Up a Tapestry

It is quite common to hang up framed artwork or photographs on your bedroom walls, but nothing can quite match the beauty and impact of a tapestry. There are millions of incredibly creative and gorgeous tapestries available for purchase. They are very cost-effective, easy to clean, easy to hang up, and they turn an entire wall into a stylish work of art. If you get bored of a certain tapestry, simply fold it up neatly, put it in the closet and get a new one. You can create a set of tapestries to switch out depending on the seasons and holidays to help keep your décor fresh and interesting.

Use Closet Organizers

Since it is the main storage area of your bedroom, it is understandable for your closet to become cluttered and unorganized. Luckily, there are many incredibly useful closet organizers on the market to help clear up space and make everything easy to find. A hanging rack for the door gives you extra shelves, bins and hangers for clothes, accessories, and other items. Stackable shelves and drawers allow you to keep specific items separated and easily accessible. Specially designed space saving hangers give you the ability to hang up numerous shirts, pairs of pants or dresses on one tiered hanger. Finally, you cannot forget the classic shoe rack to help keep all your shoes together and organized.

Place Potted Plants Around the Room

Plants are a staple in any home, but they are particularly great to place around the bedroom. Potted plants add a pop of color, induce feelings of calmness and they improve the air quality in your room. Having good air quality is especially important in the bedroom since poor air quality makes it more difficult for you to sleep and may irritate allergies, asthma, and sleep apnea.
