Bedroom Accessories

Written by Karen Bates (last updated May 22, 2019)

There are several aspects that can really make a bedroom look unique. Or course, the colors you use can have a huge impact, such as what color you paint the walls or use for curtains and bedding. The style of furniture is another important part of a room's look.

Beyond that, though, are the smaller touches that you don't always think about but definitely add to the mood and look of a room: accessories. Bedroom accessories can vary greatly but add to the way a room appears overall. You can really change a room with just a few accessories thrown in to help decorate the area.

When you are considering what accessories to place in a bedroom, you should first consider who will be staying in that room. The personality of the room's inhabitant can help guide the decision. Also, think about any themes or styles that you are trying to stick to. For instance, if you are going for a very contemporary look, an antique lamp or rug probably isn't the best choice to suit the room.

Accessories come in all types, from functional to decorative. Most accessories are items that are not necessarily needed in a room but add flair and visual appeal. Functional accessories would include lamps, mirrors, rugs, and storage bins. Posters and paintings, decorative throw pillows, souvenirs, and wall decals are accessories used for purely decorative purposes.

Because a room can quickly begin to look cluttered with too many accessories, you should carefully choose which pieces to display in a room. Even the nicest accessories can make an area look crowded if they are crammed into too little space. In smaller bedrooms, limit the use of accessories and try to keep it somewhat simple so that it is not overwhelming. A lamp, a rug, and a few pictures on the wall may be all you need to decorate. Even if you are dealing with a large space, take care not to create a cluttered look.

A few carefully chosen accessories can really contribute to a room's look and feel. In a bedroom, it can be particularly important to create a calming space, so consider using accessories in colors or a theme that will help you feel relaxed. For example, you could create the feeling of sitting near the ocean by using blue tones in your decorating and placing shells or other beach-related trinkets around the room.

There are many possibilities when it comes to accessorizing a bedroom. Use your imagination and have fun creating the perfect look for your space.
