Skip The Stacks of Pillows: 5 Alternative Ways To Create Interest In Your Bedroom

Skip The Stacks of Pillows: 5 Alternative Ways To Create Interest In Your Bedroom

March 14, 2019

You might have run out of decorating ideas for your bedroom. After all, every bedroom has a bed and a few other pieces of furniture, but little else. That means you must make the best of what you have and choose new items wisely.

Here are five easy ways to create interest in your bedroom without relying on a stack of pillows on your bed.

Add Various Textures

By varying smooth and rough textures throughout your bedroom you immediately create interest, even when you use a neutral or simple color palette.

Add a shaggy throw rug, nubby bed throw, or a piece of wicker and then contrast it with smooth finishes. Satin and silk, metals, and sleek faux fur provides excellent smooth texture to contract rough surfaces. Whatever textures you choose, use them in at least three spots within your bedroom for cohesiveness.

Consider Negative Spaces

Leave space in your bedroom for the eye to rest. Don’t fill every shelf. Carefully choose items you value and display them so they can breathe.

Create a small image gallery on the wall, but don’t plaster every surface with pictures. Alternatively, hang one large canvas on one wall, and then hang unorthodox objects on the others. Hats, a single stiletto heel, or even your favorite sarong can add bedroom interest without spending a dime.

Create Zones

You don’t necessarily need to buy new items when you want to create interest. Routinely rotate your collection of items, put them in new places, and display them in novel ways.

As an example, instead of leaving a chair by your bed, create a vignette. Move the chair into the corner along with a nightstand and lamp to create a reading nook. Toss your bed throw over the back of the chair and voila! Instant interest.

Make a Statement with Bedding

You don’t have to spend a fortune on bedding to make a statement and add interest to your room. With so many patterns, textures, colors, and fabrics available it’s easy to create a fabulous bedroom on a budget.

Vilano-Springs-Quilt Set

Just look at the crazy selection of amazing bedsheet sets you can buy today! How about a bold, geometric duvet cover, or one adorned with a modern foliage. There’s absolutely no reason you can’t add interest to your bedroom, considering each costs less than $30. That’s so affordable you can buy several sets and switch things up whenever you please.

Pick a Principle Color

Any designer will tell you that you should pick a color and use it throughout your bedroom. You don’t need to drown your bedroom in it, but you should dab it around the room to create cohesiveness. Your eye travels from one spot of color to the next and this creates interest.

Southshore-Basics-Duvet-Cover-Set

The Southshore Basics Collection offers 20 amazing contemporary and classic duvet colors and 24 complementary or contrasting sheet colors. Choose from neutrals, blues, greens, pinks, purples, and even black. That’s a huge number of combinations for almost unending interest.

*****
