Are you ready to make your bedroom feel like a 5-star hotel suite? We found 10 simple steps you can take to add that extra touch of luxury to your bedroom. Whether switching out your bedding for a more luxurious set or adding some elegant decor, these tips will help turn your bedroom into a relaxing and inviting sanctuary.

Use a Neutral Colour Palette

A neutral colour palette is key to creating a luxurious bedroom atmosphere. You can create a tranquil space to relax by picking a calm, muted shade. For a sophisticated style, incorporate different items in various shades of the same hue –cream, grey, or beige for an added touch of luxury, and layer textiles and cushions in the same colour scheme to create an inviting atmosphere.

Choose a Standout Headboard

Adding a luxe-looking headboard is a surefire way to increase the glam factor in your bedroom. Your bed headboard is a significant part of your bedroom design. Whether you select a stylish wooden headboard that easily elevates your bedroom look or opt for a more modern and chic statement piece, there are plenty of options available to make a statement in your bedroom. If you are looking for something extra special, you can customize your headboard with unique fabrics and embellishments to make it stand out from the rest. With the right headboard, you can create an eye-catching centrepiece that will impress anyone who enters your bedroom.

Upgrade Lampshades

Upgrading your lampshades is an easy and affordable way to elevate your bedroom’s luxe look instantly. Swap out boring plastic or unfinished paper shades for something more ornate, such as stained glass fish scale lamps, or opt for a more minimalistic feel with exposed bulb lighting. Make sure to use low-wattage bulbs for any style you choose to create a soothing and inviting atmosphere.

Layer Textiles and Cushions

Adding textiles and cushions to your bedroom is an easy way to make it instantly feel more luxurious. A faux fur throw, a velvet armchair, or a gorgeous gilded dresser can add texture and visual richness to your bedroom. Textiles are also great for incorporating colour and pattern into your space without being too overwhelming. Easton suggests starting with high-quality bed linens – like Sferra – and tucking everything in nice and tight for a clean, finished look. Don’t forget the pillows! Soft, squishy pillows are perfect for snuggling up in bed and adding that extra luxury.

Add a Mirror

Adding a mirror to your bedroom is a great way to make it feel more luxurious instantly. Mirrors can reflect light, creating a room appear brighter and bigger than it is, and the right style will add a touch of glamour and sophistication. Consider repurposing an old bedroom mirror with a fresh coat of paint or look for something new with interesting shapes or metal frames for added character. Think of hardware like jewellery for your bedroom, and in the same way, a big pair of earrings or a statement necklace can perk up any outfit, and a well-placed mirror can make all the difference in your bedroom’s look feel.

Hang Artwork

Adding artwork to your bedroom is a great way to make the space feel more luxurious. Art pieces can range from sculptures, photographs, vibrant paintings and more. When choosing wall art, try to use a neutral colour palette. This will help create a sense of harmony and keep the bedroom uncluttered. Why hang a statement piece if you’re looking for something extra special? This will add an eye-catching touch to your room that will surely be admired by everyone who visits. Alternatively, if you’re looking for a more personal touch, why not hang framed photographs of your favourite memories? This is a great way to add a touch of warmth and personality to your bedroom.

Add Statement Lighting

Adding statement lighting to your bedroom can instantly elevate the space, giving it a luxurious ambience. From crystal chandeliers to modern table lamps, the options are endless. Think about what kind of statement you want to make and choose something that complements the overall theme of your bedroom. For example, opt for a sleek, geometric lamp with a glossy finish if you have a modern, minimalistic look in your bedroom. Or, if you have chosen a more traditional style for your bedroom, a classic chandelier with cascading crystals will add a beautiful touch. Whatever statement lighting you decide on, it’s sure to make your bedroom feel more luxurious.

Invest in Quality Mattresses and Bed Linen

Making sure you have a comfortable and supportive mattress, and bed linen is essential for creating a luxurious bedroom. Investing in quality materials will ensure that you have the best night’s sleep possible. Look for sheets made from natural materials like cotton, bamboo or linen, as these will be softer than those made from synthetic fabrics. It’s also worth investing in mattress and pillow toppers for added comfort. Once you have the basics, you can seek out the softest sheets, such as those made by world-renowned designer Katharine Hepburn.

Try a Tray

Creating a luxurious bedroom doesn’t have to be an expensive endeavour. A simple way to make your bedroom feel more high-end is to use a tray. Try using a tray to hold the otherwise-scattered items on your dresser top, such as jewellery, perfume bottles, or small collectibles. Instantly, the room will feel more organized and luxurious. Choose a tray that complements the colour scheme of your bedroom and adds a touch of elegance. A wooden or metal finish tray is perfect for adding a hint of luxury to your room.

Include Anything That Brings You Joy

Making your bedroom feel more luxurious doesn’t have to be expensive. Adding items that bring you joy and lighten your mood can instantly transform the space. Think about pieces representing your personality, such as a velvet armchair, a dark wood bed frame, or a gilded dresser. Don’t forget to add art, flowers, and décor objects that make you smile. Anything that lifts your spirits is worth including in the bedroom, so don’t be afraid to mix and match pieces for a unique look.
