Millennial Magazine - Personalize-Your-Bedroom

Your bedroom is typically your own space, regardless of whether you live in a shared home with family members, a spouse or partner, or even if you live alone. There is something that is very personal and private about a bedroom from the rest of the home. It is important to utilize that space and create a personalized experience to give you identity and your own space that you might not find throughout the rest of the day or in other spaces. Here are some simple and creative ways to decorate and design your bedroom to make it feel more personal.


Lights are important to any room in your home, and the bedroom is no different. The lighting present in a room is capable of creating a variety of moods, so choosing how you light it is essential to what you want the vibe to be like. If you want something that is cozy and inviting, you might consider warmer tones while a brighter lit space provides an environment to get work done. It is good to have multiple sources of light as well, including a table lamp, as your bedroom will serve multiple purposes during different times of the day.


Along with the light in your room, the paint job you have on your walls does a great deal to create an atmosphere and vibe to your bedroom. Light colors create a more spacious feeling, allowing light from windows to bounce around, while a darker color may have a warming or soothing effect that promotes restful sleep. It is up to you how to paint the room, but that is a great way to personalize any bedroom.


Some difficulties with redesigning a bedroom are that certain design choices will be harder to change and ultimately be choices that you have to live with for long periods of time. Design experts from acknowledge that bedding and sheets are a great way to compliment and personalize your room, yet make it easy to change as your feelings or your mood changes as well. It is a good idea to have multiple types of sheets in colors and fabrics that will match, contrast, or fit your style.


One of the best ways to customize your bedroom with your own personality and style is to include different artworks in there. This will allow you to express yourself through your decoration and design choices with either your own creative pieces or pieces that resonate with you. Art is very personal, and what one person likes might not be what others appreciate. Ultimately, you are choosing art that you enjoy, and using that art to design your rooms and your home is a perfect way to make your space uniquely your own.


In addition to different types of art, pictures provide the ultimate personalization to a bedroom. You can include pictures of your family, or if you are a photographer, hang and put pictures up that you have taken. Like art, these are all items that will resonate specifically for you and no one else, making this space your own. The great thing with pictures is that no matter what else is surrounding, a personal photograph makes any space or bedroom feel like home.

Candles Or Aromas

Decorative choices are not only limited to visual designs. One great way to creatively personalize your bedroom is through smells and aromas. This can be achieved with candles of your favorite scents or diffusers that inject your room with wonderful smells. This is also a great way to hide or remove smells and odors that might be present in a bedroom, providing you with multiple benefits.

Rug Or Carpet

One way that you can alter and personalize a bedroom is with a rug or a carpet. This option helps you change not only the look of a room but the physical feel that you will experience the minute you walk into your bedroom. This can help you differentiate any room from the rest of the home, as the flooring will most likely be consistent throughout a house or apartment. Area rugs provide you a unique feel and aesthetic, making it stand out.

There is nothing like going to sleep in your own bed, and you will notice this when you are away from it for extended amounts of time. This is because there is something personal about your own bedroom, your sheets, your decor. No matter how you design your space, whether fully creative and unique or with more simple choices, it is your unique and personal area.
