45 beautiful bedrooms with great ideas to steal (1)

Take a look at these beautiful bedrooms with stylish colour and pattern combinations, gorgeous furniture ideas and clever finishing touches.

Whether you're undergoing a big bedroom renovation, decorating a blank canvas, or need some fuss-free but impactful ways to update your space every season, we've compiled 45 bedroom ideas to hep you create your dream sanctuary.

When it comes to bedroom design, a few things to consider include the colour scheme (remember, bold can be as restful as neutrals as long as you keep to tones of the same colour), layout and space-saving furniture. If your bedroom is fulfilling multiple roles, such as being a sleeping and working space, find ways to zone it off, for example with a pretty screen or use a secondary colour to help define the different areas. You can personalise your space with bedroom decor that aligns with your theme, from Scandi to contemporary to boho-style.

Importantly, the bedroom is where you retreat to at the end of each day – we spend a third of our lives sleeping – so it makes sense to create an environment that's as calm and healthy as possible. Steve Adams, sleep expert at Mattress Online, agrees: 'As well as the overall aesthetic, you also need to consider the "sleepability" of your room. Keep the main purpose of the room in mind and you'll no doubt create a sleep sanctuary that you can enjoy night after night.'

These bedroom decor ideas will give you all the inspiration you need...

Layering tactile materials will add depth and interest to a bedroom scheme.

Bedroom ideas: Boutique hotel-style

There are two notable bedroom design features to discuss here. In what is quite a neutral bedroom scheme, a rich ochre fluted custom headboard becomes the focal point of the bed, layered with quilted bedlinen and double stacked decorative cushions. We're also fond of the wooden shelves used here to maximise space in an unused alcove – it also allows for a curated display of treasured possessions. The chunky wood shelf on the bottom adds a rustic touch to an otherwise contemporary bedroom.

For a bedroom idea that's calming but still impactful, get creative with paint to make a feature wall, like this large circular wall design. This cheery, rosy hue brings a bright burst of joy into a room. It's a delicate, refreshing shade and a great alternative to other warm neutrals such as cream or beige. Importantly, it's soft enough to flatter a multitude of looks.
