We all have our favourite rooms in the house. They're the ones we spend the most time in and really make an impression on us. But if you've ever considered upgrading your bedroom, it might be worth it to do some research first. Would you like a cosy bedroom aesthetic? Or are you more of a minimalist? What are some things that need to be changed before you start? It’s good to ask these questions early to guide your process. To help you decide on what to include in your new bedroom, take a look at the ideas for the best bedroom upgrades below!
Paint the walls
Paint the walls of your bedroom a soft colour if you’re looking for an understated look. Whether you're redecorating or just freshening up your decor, painting your walls is one of the best things you can do for your bedroom. It's easy to feel more relaxed in a room that features soothing colours like blue and green (especially if they're mixed with white), but even bolder colours work well if they're applied in small doses. The trick is to avoid shades that are too bright; those will have the opposite effect on your mood than intended!
Choose a colour that is relaxing for you. As much as we love to see pretty colours, it's important not to go overboard when choosing paint colours for our bedrooms—those bright pinks or vibrant reds may look great at first glance, but they won't help us relax when we lay down at night! Make sure you choose hues that are calm and soothing.

Focus on the furniture
The most important thing in your bedroom is the bed. You spend about a third of your life there, so make sure it's comfortable and fits the size of your bedroom. If you have a small room, go for something smaller like a twin or full-sized mattress instead of an oversized king. If you have more than one person sleeping in the same room, consider buying two beds instead of one larger one that takes up too much space for just one person to sleep on comfortably.
If you're looking for an investment piece, look into getting a new mattress set that will last several years without needing replacing (or at least replaceable). The most common mistake people make when buying new furniture is not thinking about how easy it would be to move elsewhere if they decided they needed more space or wanted to change their home style completely—if this applies to you then think about finding pieces with low legs so they can easily be picked up by two people or moved around by themselves once fully assembled!
If you want to take your bedroom's look and feel to the next level, consider adding hardwood floors. They're durable, attractive and will never go out of style. If you're worried about how they'll look in a high-traffic room like a bedroom, don't be! A good hardwood floor will last for years (and years) while maintaining its appearance.
If you want something more soothing on your feet than cold tile or linoleum, carpet is also an excellent choice for bedrooms. It can absorb sound better than hard surfaces and gives off a cosy vibe that's perfect for sleeping in. With so many options available today—from plush wool rugs to thin synthetic fibres—you should have no trouble finding the kind of rug that works best with your decorating scheme without breaking your budget.
Windows are everything
Windows are everything. Not only do they allow us to see the outside world, but having them in your bedroom can make it feel larger, more inviting and cosy. Windows can also be used to add personality to your space by incorporating different window treatments like sheer curtains or blinds that complement the rest of your décor.
If you have a large window that takes up half of one wall, it's important to keep in mind how much natural light will be coming through it during different times of day: if you like waking up early with plenty of sun shining into your room, then maybe consider having some blackout shades installed so that when you wake up at 6 am you don't have any harsh light waking you up!
Go green with indoor plants
You may be looking for a way to make your bedroom more relaxing, detoxifying, and conducive to falling asleep. The answer is simple: indoor plants!
Indoor plants can help with all of the following:
- Sleep better: Research shows that having green plants in your home helps reduce stress and anxiety, which can lead to improved sleep quality.
- Air quality: Plants naturally filter toxins out of the air, so they're great for improving indoor air quality without having to spend money on special filters.
- Noise reduction: It's well known that certain kinds of music can help you relax; not many people know that certain kinds of plant life do the same thing! They work by absorbing sound waves instead of reflecting them back into your room like most surfaces will do—this makes it easier for you to hear softer sounds so that you aren't kept awake by loud noises coming from the outside or inside the house itself (like family members talking).

Add some personality
The bedroom is the only room in your home where you should be able to express yourself. Whether it's with a bold colour or patterned wall, a rug or bedding, or even some greenery. The bedroom is the place where you can leave behind the outside world and enjoy some uninterrupted downtime, so take advantage of it!
If a new piece of furniture like a chest of drawers or bedside table has been on your wishlist but isn't essential (for instance if you have enough storage space), consider adding a statement piece instead. You could also make use of one wall by painting it in an up-and-coming colour or adding wallpaper that makes an impact without being too overpowering.
Whether you’re looking to revamp your room or just spruce up a few things, these ideas are a great place to start. A comfortable bedroom is key to a good night’s sleep and can make all the difference in your mood during the day, so don’t let us stop you from getting started!
