While designing, the interior wall design for the bedroom is often an afterthought. However, the bedroom is a great place to experiment – with wall décor, we mean! A bedroom needs to be your oasis of peace, where you can get a restful night’s sleep and feel reinvigorated to take on a new day in the mornings. The colours and patterns you choose for your bedroom walls can significantly affect how you feel daily.
Since your bedroom is your private space, it’s the room you see the most often and the least visited by guests; your bedroom can be as reflective of your style as you want it to be. Read on for our top tips on decorating your bedroom walls so that your bedroom is the least boring place in the house.
1. The Cozy Cocoon
Being enveloped in soothing colours can help you get a good night’s sleep. A single deep colour across the entire room can help create that atmosphere. Deep blues or olive greens are great colours to make sense of calm. Extending the colour on your walls to your cabinets and joinery across the room gives it that cocoon-like feeling. Vinyl wallpaper can also be used on your cabinets for continuous wraparound colour.
2. Warm Earthy Tones
While reds and oranges are not usually colours one would choose to create a sense of calm, choosing warm rusts and earthy oranges can do that. They can add a touch of luxury while staying with the earthy interior trend that’s all the rage today. Earthy tones can help you feel secure and grounded at the beginning and end of each day. Consider using vinyl wallpapers with different textures to add a soft tactile quality to your wall décor.
3. Feature Wall
A feature wall can draw the eye to create a focal point in your bedroom. Your feature wall can be a different colour from the rest of your walls to match the trim on your curtains. Or you can create your mural for a luxurious note. While you could go DIY and create a mural or pay an excessive amount for one to be made for you, a third option that works in your favour regarding time and costs is to print a custom vinyl wallpaper with a pattern of your choice. You can even design your way or picture for your feature wall.
4. Skip the Headboard
If your bed doesn’t have a headboard, create a sensation one with a panel of wallpaper behind the bed to create the illusion of one. You can go as tall as you like to add height to a small room. Choose a softly textured vinyl wallpaper to add the softness a traditional headboard brings, and don’t forget to add plenty of pillows to add plushness.
5. Bring the Outdoors In
It’s no secret that nature has a meditative quality about it. It is also timeless. Bring a piece of the outdoors into your interior wall design for the bedroom by choosing a nature-themed motif for your walls. Gentle green tones, floral designs, or botanical patterns are all great options for nature-inspired walls. If space allows, you can complement your wallpaper with wooden accents or a natural plant.
6. Patterns Made Easy
Vinyl wallpaper lets you go as intricate with your patterns as you like. Don’t be afraid to layer patterns in your room with patterned wallpaper, a patterned bedspread or even on your lampshades. The right patterns can add the illusion of height in rooms with low ceilings or add a richness plain walls simply cannot. You can also opt for patterns with metallic detailing that reflect light to add freshness to your pattern.
7. NY Style Brick Wall
Add some Big Apple chic to your bedroom walls with an exposed brick wall without the hassle of maintaining one with brick wall printed vinyl wallpaper. The red bricks feel earthy and warm and are perfectly suited for a Boho-styled room.
You can also find vinyl wallpaper to mimic a whole variety of materials including marble, wood, concrete and more. Whatever your style, there’s a vinyl wallpaper out there for you. It offers several benefits over traditional wallpaper and adds depth, dimension, and textures to your walls in a way that paint cannot.
