The bedroom is one of the most personal environments that exists, after all, it is there where you will keep your belongings, and also where you will also express yourself, especially through decoration. The colors, objects, lighting, each of the aspects that make up the space say a lot about your personality. In addition, decorating the room is a way to make the space more comfortable and enjoyable.
Thinking about all these aspects, care is needed when decorating the room. That’s because, the furniture, objects and colors need to be harmonized. When this is not done, the mixture of many shades and dimensions can make the space chaotic, which completely eliminates all the cozy aspects of the place.
Thus, regardless of the size of the room, or your style of decoration, it is interesting to pay special attention to the walls. If you already have furniture in the environment, then be careful to combine them. If not, be careful to decorate the dividers so that the future objects you want to place in your room can match them. As it makes up most of the space, the walls must be the protagonists, either with the use of painting, either with textures or wallpapers.
At the same time, it is interesting to use curtains and rugs in the room. Again, taking care to combine them with the rest of the space. The fabrics manage to make the room more cozy, in addition to greatly benefiting its acoustics. In the case of curtains, it is interesting to have a light fabric, which lets in light, overlaid by another “heavier” one, which blocks the lighting when necessary.

Small bedroom decoration
1. Use light tones
The first tip when decorating a small space is to use colors and objects that make it bigger. This means investing in clear tones, as they give the feeling of tranquility. Meanwhile, dark colors “close” the environment, making it even smaller.
It does not mean, however, that the room must have only one color. Especially on the walls, it is interesting to invest in at least two shades. If you are a fan of stripes, you can use horizontal lines, which will guarantee the feeling of horizontal amplitude of the space. In addition, choosing more than one shade avoids the monotony of the room.
2. Choose multifunctional furniture
Something fundamental in a small space is to avoid placing too many objects in the way. This can be done, then, through the use of planned furniture, or even with multifunctional ones. A bed with drawers, for example, is a multifunctional piece of furniture. It can replace an ordinary bed and a dresser that, separately, would “clutter up” the space more than necessary.
Bunk beds, trichomes, a work table with shelves and a suspended bed also fit this idea of multifunctionality. That is, as long as they have more than one objective in the room, the furniture will be able to optimize the environment.
The planned furniture is advantageous because it allows the use of every corner of the room. In addition, they are adapted according to what the individual needs, which allows you to enjoy each compartment more fully.
3. Enjoy the walls
If the space available is small, nothing better than using the walls, in addition to the floor, to help decorate the room. You can, for example, install shelves and niches around the environment. This will generate more places available for positioning objects, in addition to ensuring a more interesting organization.
It is also possible to invest in the installation of luminaires directly on the wall. This eliminates the need for a nightstand next to the bed, leaving space available. The same for television: why put it on a piece of furniture, if installing it on the wall will save space?
4. Abuse of mirrors
When the goal is to make the room look bigger, the solution is mirrors. By reflecting points in the environment, mirrors are able to create a sense of spaciousness and continuity. However, it is important not to overdo it.
If there are many mirrors scattered, “closing” the room, the feeling of smallness will be greater than that of spaciousness. Therefore, it is interesting to insert the pieces in, at most, two walls. Placing them on cupboard or dresser doors is also interesting. Just like at the head of the bed.

5. Invest in delicacy
It is clear that the woman may prefer strong tones and more “rustic” objects. However, investing in light tones and delicate items is a more “basic” alternative and easy to please. These characteristics, in fact, are capable of making the environment cozy, giving it also a romantic air.

6. Define a style
More than for an adult woman, defining the style for a teenager’s bedroom is essential. This is because, at this stage of life, the individual’s personality and personal tastes are very much in vogue. Allowing the young woman to express what she thinks through the decoration of the room is a means of facilitating her “discovery of the world”.
In this case, the room of a young woman who has a more romantic style should bet a lot on light tones. Pastel colors are the most interesting, especially if they stay between pink and lilac. To reinforce the romanticism, it is interesting to have furniture in the Provencal style, in addition to floral items, such as bedding or wallpaper.
For a teenager with a more stripped and fun style, investing in the modern style is the best option. Colorful furniture, wall stickers, posters, paintings of varying sizes…. Creativity is the main point of this type of decoration.
Girls with a “nerd” style may prefer to insert geek culture items in their room. This includes, for example, pieces that refer to comics, superheroes and games.
Always try to highlight the “girl power” style, with objects that refer to female protagonists as well. In games, for example, there is Lara Croft, while Wonder Woman is a great hero.
Finally, you can invest in an urban style. Here, it is important to value sober colors, such as gray and purple, and elements that resemble large metropolises.
7. Create a space for studies
In a teenager’s room, it is also interesting to set aside a space for dedication to studies. To do this, simply position a desk or table in one corner of the room. In case the space available is limited, invest again in multifunctional or planned furniture.
And what about the decor of a men’s room?
Generally, men’s rooms stand out for their sobriety. So it is easy to find gray, blue and black walls. However, it is possible to invest in more cheerful and colorful tones, or even simpler ones, such as green, beige, orange and others.
For these spaces, however, it is interesting to maintain a limited palette of colors. Unlike female rooms, it is more common that male spaces do not have “points of color”. Instead, they remain “closed” to four or five tones, so that the more sober aspect is not lost. That’s even if “cheerful” tones are used.
Again, however, it is important to note that these are the most common methods. It does not mean, however, that the decoration of the space should be limited to the standard. Creativity can create a place as cozy as desired.
Teenage boy’s bedroom decor
As in the case of teenage girls, it is always advantageous to define a style for decorating a teenage boy’s room. That way, he will have items around him that he identifies with, feeling more comfortable in space.
In the case of a nerdy teenager, again it is interesting to invest in items related to comics, superheroes and games.
In the case of passion for sports, define the boy’s favorite sport and collect items that refer to him. Images that refer to the sea and surfboards, for example, can be ideal for surfing aficionados. Meanwhile, a roof that mimics a football field can be incredible for fans of national passion.
8. Define a space for fun and another for studies
If the teenager is a fan of games, it can be a great alternative to decorate a space for fun. This can be done through the positioning of some ottomans close to the television, and a specific piece of furniture to accommodate the games.
Children’s room decoration
9. Invest in cheerful tones
If your goal is to decorate a child’s room, abuse the colors. Cheerful tones stimulate the brain, and make the environment much more attractive to the little one.
10. “Hide” the sockets
Whenever possible, it is interesting to avoid installing low sockets. After all, the child may end up having an accident. In any case, however, they can become decorative objects, colored, as long as they also have a security plate, to avoid the baby’s contact with electricity.
11. Use large toys
Instead of being kept, the children’s toys, how about making them a part of the decoration of the room? However, it is important that they are large, and that they do not have loose parts. This care will prevent the little one from swallowing parts, which is quite dangerous.
12. Don’t block circulation
It is always important to avoid placing furniture and objects “in the middle of the road”. Especially in the small children’s room, parents should have easy access to the crib.
13. Invest in a rubberized floor
For many people, there is no decoration without a rug. However, a garment with hair can cause allergies to the child, and make it difficult to breathe, in addition to making it difficult to move. Therefore, it is more interesting to invest in rubberized parts. In addition to being colorful, they cushion falls and small movements.
14. “Play” with the ceiling
Decorating the ceiling with pendants, designs and even stars is a great alternative. More than making the bedroom more beautiful, this type of resource can stimulate the child’s creativity, even when he is lying down to rest.

15. Photos and souvenirs are a great option!
For a double room, it is interesting to invest in memories. In other words, positioning photos and objects that refer to the story of the couple or each individual. Separate images in frames give a special charm to the space. Picture frames can be placed in niches and shelves.
16. Decorative paintings are a trend
If there is one thing that stands out in a double room, it is a decorative painting. It can have “generic” images, be personalized, or even help to intensify the style of the decoration. Phrases and quotes liked by the couple are equally attractive, and can make the space even more customized.

After all, individuals spend a third of their lives on it . Thus, it is essential to invest in attractive bedding that, especially, matches the rest of the decor.
In a small double room, the same tips as the beginning of this text are also valid: use planned and multifunctional furniture; use the walls to install objects; use light colors; and invest in mirrors.

18. Purchase large furniture
If there is space “left over” in the double room, a great way out is to invest in large furniture. Bedside tables, wardrobes, bed…. Usually, objects are divided between the couple, and it is essential to ensure that both individuals have enough space for their belongings.
19. Abuse of “compartmentalized” lighting
In the bedroom, it is not uncommon for one individual to want to sleep, while the other prefers to read. So, to avoid disagreements, it is essential that both sides of the bed have independent lighting. This can be done mainly through lamps, and will guarantee a certain independence for each individual.
20. “Spread” plants around the room
If you want to bring life to your room, you can invest in some potted plants. Small and delicate vegetables (such as succulents), flowers or even small trees can create the feeling of greater welcome and delicacy in the environment.
Regardless of the type of plant chosen, however, it is important that it is well positioned. A vase should never occupy an exaggerated space, nor should it hinder the path. Instead, it needs to integrate into the environment and bring about the desired sense of well-being.
