Experiment with wallpaper or textures on the walls
Choosing the perfect walls for your bedroom is one of the toughest decisions. Once the decision is made and the process is done, it cannot be undone easily, at least not without wasting a ton of energy, time, and money! So, this process can be hard for anyone, but the coolest part of choosing wallpapers or textured walls for your bedroom is that you can play endlessly with the colours and textures.
Be it a minimalist setting that you want to achieve, or maybe you want to bring a dramatic scene across your bedroom, your walls will tell the story of your choice. And once the walls are right, choosing the other things becomes a breeze.
In contrast, wallpapers add artistry and design detail to your bedroom; textured walls enhance the room's atmosphere through their presence. Now here comes the questions. Should you choose wallpaper or textured walls for your bedroom? Let's look at the below table to understand which might suit you the best.
|Textured paints can be either oil-based or water-based paints. They are also available in different forms like emulsion, distemper, or enamel paints. These paints can be applied to the walls as solid colours to bring the texture and patterns on the walls.
|Wallpapers come in rolls that can be pasted to the walls using a strong adhesive. Here you can choose from different prints, textures, and patterns to suit your preference, and create a style statement that you always wanted in your bedroom.
|Cost - Textured paints are a cost-effective option when compared to wallpapers. Textured walls can be applied with minimum tools and hence do not require a lot of money to get it right.
|Cost - The cost of the wallpapers depends on the type of wallpaper one chooses. And unlike textured walls, wallpapers require specific tools and requirements. And this adds up to more cost.
|Maintenance - The textured walls can get chipped or dirty and hence you need to repaint them. But, there are washable paint options available as well.
|Maintenance - Its easy to repair the worn-out part of the wallpaper if the same kind of wallpaper is available. And since wallpapers are scrubbable, they are easy to maintain.

Choose a high-quality bedding
What brings the best out of our beauty? Of course, we wear the outfits to our work, parties, or maybe a video call meeting.

Similarly, choosing high-quality bedding or a luxury mattress for your bedroom can speak for itself about the beauty and aesthetics of the room.
The fabrics that we pick and choose for our precious zone can bring both comfort and superior air without a doubt. To determine the right bedding style for your room, you need to master two tricks which we have mentioned below -
- Fabric - Cotton, linen, or chemical fibres, whatever you embrace, whichever material you love, make sure that it brings the most comfort and never misses to add that piece of luxury to your bedroom.

If you would love to hear our suggestions, you can always choose black, white, and grey colours, which are the symbol of eternal classic style and luxury. They will never let you down, and that is for sure! Overstuff your pillows
Overstuff your pillows
Overstuffed pillows project your room to resemble the look of an expensive hotel room. And who doesn't love that aspect of their bedroom? There is surely something luxurious about overstuffed, plush pillows, which can transform your bedroom from a regular style to a sumptuous hotel decor. You can fill your pillows with inserts larger than your covers (For example - If you have an 18-inch (46 cm) pillow, stuff the pillow with a 20-inch (51 cm) pillow insert). And then you can place the pillows on your beds, armchairs, and sofas to bring that opulent look and make yourself feel that you are resigning in the room of a 5-star hotel!
Style the nightstand
If you are anything like us, or your normal friends, your nightstand is a symbol of furniture that houses and displays our everyday, everyday, essential items without regret. All your night creams, charging cords, water bottles, half-finished novels and newspapers, keys, and you name it, are placed all over your nightstand. Aren't we all guilty of this?
But now, let's rethink this whole situation. Nightstands enhance the aesthetics of our bedroom in the most elegant way possible. And it is our responsibility to let the nightstand do its job!
The pro tip is to keep all your necessary items inside the drawer and pleasantly hide things. Only choose to display things unique and eloquent to the rest of the bedroom style. You can also use a tray to store small items and beautifully display the tray. This shows your presence of mind and 10x your bedroom characteristic and purpose.
Be creative with curtains
And we come to the essential part of every bedroom. How can we imagine a bedroom without a curtain? Curtains are the focal point of any bedroom, and the way you choose your curtains can have a huge impact on your bedroom's aesthetics and functionality.

Make sure that the colours, patterns, and fabric choices are subtly echoed in your other choices, like rugs and cushions.
Choose the right lights
A dark room is everyone's popular choice when retreating to bed and staying asleep for the rest of the night. But about the mornings spent in the bedroom? The meditative sessions, the reading time, the dressing hour, and maybe even a little bit of cute romance.
