Whether you invest in a small bedside rug or a large one that fits under the whole bed, it will help infuse color, texture, and warmth into your space. Choose an area rug that brings together your room theme or color palette. Pulling colors from your bedspread will help the rug feel like a cohesive part of the décor.
Carpeting shouldn't stop you from layering a rug in your space. Find a style that's more textured than your carpet, like sisal or jute, to help add definition. A patterned area rug in bright colors will add personality.
Since we spend so much time in our bedrooms, they need a little spruce up every now and then. Rearranging your furniture is one of the easiest and most budget-friendly options out there.
To create plenty of movement and easy access in your new furniture arrangement, keep at least two feet of space free on either side of your bed. Also, allow plenty of clearance between the bed and the opening of the bedroom door.
Wall coverings are one of the most effective ways to add personality and pizzazz.Try a fresh coat of paint, eye-catching wallpaper, or even new artwork. For a cohesive look, choose a style inspired by your room's color palette or theme.
When picking a specific color or pattern, factor in the size of your room. A large pattern can overwhelm a small room, while a darker color can make a large room feel more cozy.
Like wall coverings, window treatments are a fun way to express your personal taste. Patterned curtains in a neutral space will make a big impact, while subtle, monochromatic window treatments add softness for a serene feel.
If you don't want to change out your existing window treatments, simply update their look with a new curtain rod, tie backs, or decorative finials.

As the focal point in any bedroom, the bed has the ability to set the tone for the entire room. From sheets and bedspreads to pillows and blankets, choose bedding and accents that blend with your design scheme.
Keep it simple with neutral bedding to create a calming feel in your space. For a well-balanced look, pair a solid duvet with patterned pillows or blankets.
A little organization goes a long way. Create a relaxing space by hiding (or getting rid of) stress-inducing clutter, including any unused or unnecessary décor. This will help your space feel more open and less stuffy.
Utilize the areas under your bed, in your nightstand, or even open wall space to store bedroom essentials—extra bed linens, pillows, shoes, seasonal clothing, and more. Get more organization ideas by reading Our Favorite Bedroom Organization Finds.
