Good Ideas for Bedroom Wall Decorations

Bedroom Wall Decorations


Your bedroom is a special place. It is a space of comfort, familiarity and where you should be spending at least seven hours of your 24 hour day (if you aren't ... get back to bed and get more sleep!).

There are those nights when you want to read a book, or those mornings when you want breakfast in bed.

Whatever the occasion, the wall decor around your bed in your bedroom space should be a refuge and a space that promotes a feeling of peace and relaxation.

It should reflect you and your style.

Sometimes a bedroom wall is left white, keeping the room spacious with a sense of freshness.  Others opt for a darker, cozier space in the bedroom.

Whichever style you prefer, you can use wall decor to bring a bit of life and a bit of your personality into the bed room.

There are all sorts of ways to bring the bedroom wall to life, and not all of them require a paintbrush or are off-limits to renters.


PAINT THE WALLS

All you need is a few liters of paint, a quality paintbrush or paint roller, and an afternoon of work to create bedroom walls with a whole new look.

All you need is a few liters of paint, a quality paintbrush or paint roller, and an afternoon of work to create bedroom walls with a whole new look.

Keep in mind that if you want decent results, it is best to take time to do the prep work of washing the walls, patching holes, taping off areas you don't want paint applied, and protecting the floors and a bed or any nearby furniture with covering.

Don't skip this or you will be unhappy with the finished result. Depending on the mood you want to bring, you can paint all four walls or just the one.

Painting all four walls will immediately make the room look bright and full.

You can also choose an accent wall to set off your bed frame in a color that might be overwhelming if you used it for the whole room.

Also, starting with just one wall is less commital - if you don't like it, you only have to repaint one wall, not four. You can go with a flat or a glossy wall paint, without texture.

Or you can use sponges or other painting tools to create a bit of interest in a monotone wall color. Sponge painting can give the illusion of depth.

You can also get a little creative by stamping prints onto your bedroom wall with the paint. Sponges or pre-cut stamps of shapes such as geometric shapes, nature-filled images of plants and flowers or cute feathers and animals can be used.

A bigger project, but also very effective is to add stripes to the wall above the bed headboard in a master bedroom. Use painters' tape to create straight lines for your stripes.

You can go for bright colors, creating a fun style, or try an ombre effect where you use different shades of the same hue and work progressively lighter or darker as you go up the wall. We have even more wall decor ideas!

Paint stencils that allow you to make detailed designs. Stencils can be found in a range of colors and themes to create wall decor ideas to complement any space.

More ideas: You can also free-hand paint an interesting scene in the bedroom or any room; for example, undulating mountain ranges in a variety of complementary colors.

Put it behind your bed.

This would make an outstanding accent wall or backdrop for a bedroom gallery wall.

WALLPAPER SAVIOR

If painting is not your preferred pastime, try wallpaper in the bedroom or any room.

You can cover the whole bedroom wall with a full-length print, or you can buy a large printed illustration.

If painting is not your preferred pastime, try wallpaper in the bedroom or any room. You can cover the whole bedroom wall with a full-length print, or you can buy a large printed illustration.

Today’s paper is simpler to attach and remove, though it can still be time-consuming.

Luckily, we aren't limited to traditional floral patterns on the bedroom wall.

More wall decor ideas:

Believe it or not, you can also use fabric instead of wallpaper to cover your walls.

Choose a lightweight cotton print that you love, and use liquid starch to stick the fabric to the walls.

When it's time to move, just peel the fabric off and wash the remaining starch off the wall.

Wallpaper makes a great faux headboard for your bed - check online for ideas. And if none of these bedroom wall decor ideas are your jam, there are so many options for vinyl adhesives these days.

They're not just relegated for the nursery bedroom (though there are tons of child-friendly prints out there).

You can find nature prints, city themes, even tapestry-inspired mandalas.

These take a little care to put up in your bedroom - follow the instructions and take your time to avoid air pockets and bubbles - but once up, they will stay up.

Taking them down is as easy as grabbing one side and peeling, and they leave no trace on the wall.

HANG A TAPESTRY

Bedroom Wall Decorations

Tapestries are maybe the easiest way to add flair to your bedroom or any room without a lot of effort or wear and tear.

You can make a DIY tapestry hanger for the bedroom, or you can just grab a couple of tacks or pushpins and call it a day.

You can make a DIY tapestry hanger for the bedroom, or you can just grab a couple of tacks or pushpins and call it a day.

Tapestries are so versatile that you have many other options if you buy one and change your mind about hanging it in the bedroom.

If you decide that the tapestry fits, you can keep it attached as is, or place a horizontal rod above the bed and hang the tapestry there.

If, in the end, the tapestry is not a fit for the bedroom, you can hang it somewhere else in the room, keep it as a blanket or cover for the living room couch, or roll it up and store it for later use as a picnic or beach blanket.

Use your own wall decor ideas to weave a tapestry for your bedroom!

Yarn art wall hangings are easier to make than you think, and when you're making it yourself, you can customize it by choosing colors that match your bedroom decor, like bed linens.

Another way to make your own tapestry is to get a large sheet or drop cloth and paint it, freehand, with sponges or with stencils.

This is a very easy, fast and potentially inexpensive way to decorate a large, bare wall near your bed.

There are many ways to hang a tapestry, depending on the feel you want for your room.

If you enjoy a rustic touch, you can find a large branch to suspend the tapestry from.

WALL ART

Hanging a painting on the bedroom wall is nothing new.

However, choosing the right painting for your master bedroom wall can be difficult.

It all comes down to the feeling and ideas you want to have in your bedroom.

Bedroom Wall Decorations

It all comes down to the feeling and ideas you want to have in your bedroom.

Beachy, sandy colors?

Or midnight purples and blues?

A happy scene, or melancholy?

Beyond purchased paintings, we have tons of wall decor ideas for any space or room in your house. These aren't limited to the bedroom.

Another possibility is to get a few blocks of art created by the same artist or artisan.

Having blocks of art allows you to display the images on the wall above your bed headboard or across the whole bedroom.

A tip is to keep them symmetrical with the same distances above, underneath and on each side. You can also use photographs for wall decor ideas.

There are so many canvas printing companies on the scene today. Blow up your favorite image into an 18"x24" or larger print, and you have instant wall art that keeps your loved ones close to your bed in your most personal space.

More wall decor ideas: use many small photographs and arrange them in a gallery wall them so that, collectively, they create a shape like a heart or a circle.

If you have an eye for that sort of thing, you can even try to arrange them in a way that the colors create a larger, meta-image.

There are many guides for doing this kind of thing available on the Internet.

You can make one-of-a-kind wall art by gathering substantial twigs in the woods, cutting them to be the same length, and displaying them in a large frame.

You may have to build the frame yourself, but that shouldn't be too difficult; you can get two by fours cut to size at your local hardware or lumber shop.

Another easy way to make your own wall art is to use a combination of blank canvases, pretty fabric and liquid starch.

You can create a series of matching "prints" by adhering the fabric to the canvases using the starch (fabric glue will also work).

Then hanging the prints in a row like a gallery wall to enliven a blank wall in any space or room in your house. If you're a wine lover, you'll love these ideas.

Create a cork wall art installation like this one. Simply adhere the corks to a piece of plywood in whatever configuration you like.

To keep them together, you can then use some sort of glaze or clear coating over the top.

Then just hang the board where you want it - in the bedroom or other room.

DISPLAY COLLECTIONS

Bedroom Wall Decorations

Still more wall decor ideas for your bedroom or any room or space in your home.

Many collections lend themselves to display on the walls.

While some of these may be better suited for rooms other than the bedroom, here are some wall decor ideas you may not have thought of.

1. Old plates . Hit up a thrift store for an assortment of old plates in different patterns.

You can buy decorative plate hangers to mount them on the wall.

Then just arrange them in a pleasing fashion. This is a unique and inexpensive wall art installation that anyone can achieve (and it is appropriate for the dining room, too).

2. Clipboards filled with kid art. If you have kids who love to draw, you may be inundated with new art every day.

We love this idea.

Buy a set of dollar store clipboards (12 is a nice number), hang them up (you could do three rows of four boards, for example) and clip the children's art to them.

Instant wall decor that also displays your kids' pieces in a bedroom.

3. Plants. There are many ideas for wall-mounted planters in a bedroom.

Choose easy-care plants like succulents to hang in a pleasing arrangement. Bonus, your air will be cleaner.

This is a lovely idea for a guest room as well.

4. Baskets! This is another time to go thrift-shopping.

Find an assortment at yard sales or the second-hand shop and mount them on the bedroom wall in a pleasing configuration.

One-of-a-kind and cheap to make!

5. Hats or scarves.  A few nails and a collection of colorful accessories, and you have bedroom wall art that does double-duty as storage.

This is especially well suited for the bedroom!

6. Photos. You can stick them on the bedroom wall with tape and create "frames" using washi tape.

Or you can hang actual frames on the wall in a gallery art wall style. This can go in any room in your house.

You can also display on the wall photos cut out of magazines or printed off the Internet, or postcards bought on your travels.

You can frame dried flowers and leaves. The possibilities are endless for one-of-a-kind wall artwork that showcases your unique personality.

7. You can also display photos on a piece of twine strung between two nails. Get miniature clothespins at the craft store or dollar store and use them to attach the photographs to the twine.

This also works for small pieces of artwork, scarves, or just odds and ends like fabrics you like and pretty leaves you have collected on outdoor walks.

Though we've tried to be as comprehensive as possible with our bedroom decor ideas, there is no end to the number of wall decor ideas you can come up with to decorate a wall in any space or room in your home with a little creativity .

Use these ideas to create a headboard-like display behind your bed in your bed room, or be cheeky and make a full gallery wall in the bathroom!

A true sign of sustainability becoming a more than a momentary trend is when big online platforms like Net-a-Porter start to offer a dedicated yet small ”organic” selection. The trend almost turns into a movement when smaller multi-brand online stores pop up, which offer curated selections from sustainable brands.
