Make Valentine’s Day special this year and show your love by decorating the bedroom for your sweetheart. There’s no need to plan any big changes. Work with what you have and let inspiration come your way. We have a few ideas that might help. All you have to do is pick your favorite.
De-clutter the room.
This doesn’t sound very romantic but you can’t plan a romantic bedroom décor without cleaning the space first. Take out everything that doesn’t belong there. Once the room is clutter-free, clean and organized, you can start adding all the special accent details.
Switch to dim lights.
If you haven’t done this yet, now is the perfect time to switch to dim lights and to make your bedroom look romantic without necessarily making any other big changes. Create a soothing ambiance and set the right tone.
Decorate with candles.
If you don’t want to go through all the trouble of switching to dimmable lights, you can choose to decorate with candles. Illuminate the room, create focal points and turn the whole space into a romantic nook for just the two of you. But watch out where you place the candles and remember: safety first.
A few hints of red.
Red is the color of passion, among other things so take this opportunity to change the vibe in the bedroom by introducing a few red accents. Maybe you can get some new pillow covers for this occasion or decorate with red flowers.
Get a new bed.
Valentine’s Day can be the opportunity for you to get rid of the old, ugly bed and get a new one. It would be an amazing surprise for your loved one and an investment you’ll both appreciate for years to come. Consider a few more romantic options such as a canopy bed, a four-poster bed and even a round bed. If you’re not prepared for this kind of change, you can reinvent the bed you already have, maybe get a new headboard or adding ceiling canopy curtains.
Get satin or silk bedding for Valentine’s Day and focus on creating a sexy playground for you and your partner. You can also focus on color instead of the type of fabric. Try red if you want the room to look passionate or purple or gold if you prefer luxury and glamor.
Romantic wall décor.
The wall décor has a huge impact on the overall look of a room. So if you have some spare time, come up with a way to set a romantic mood for your bedroom by framing some photos of you as a couple or by creating something a bit more original such this butterfly wall décor.
Decorate with string lights.
Shape your string lighting into a tree and decorate one of the walls in your bedroom. It’s going to take a while but it’s worth the effort.
Turn the room into a love fortress.
Use fabric to decorate the ceiling and the walls of the bedroom. Choose a color that shows your passion and love. Red would be nice but you can also play with other shades.
Decorate from the heart.
You can use clichees such as heart shapes to decorate the bedroom and make it look original. The key is being subtle. A heart-shaped mirror could look nice on a wall and you can also find ways to include this lovely shape in other ways.
A special headboard.
Outfit your bed with a special-looking headboard. It can be something temporary, crafted specifically for this occasion. You can make a fabric cover for your existing headboard or decorate it with themed elements.
A fresh coat of paint.
Doesn’t your bedroom look like it could use a fresh coat of paint? Why not make a change right now and adopt a more romantic and passionate approach, changing the whole mood in the room. For example, paint one of the walls red. And since this is not a particularly relaxing color, it should be the wall behind the bed.
Decorate the mantel.
If you have a fireplace in the master bedroom, that’s already pretty romantic. You can enhance the romantic vibe by decorating the mantel with something handcrafted or with candles and other accent details.
Play with textures.
Make the bedroom cozier and more welcoming than usual by introducing some new textures. Try faux fur, velvet or velour. Soft, rich fabrics can be used for comforters, blankets, pillow covers, etc.
