Apartment Bedroom Decor Tips

Here are 10 tips that will help you understand how to decorate your apartment bedroom!

1. Hang Up Art Prints Above Your Bed

Hanging art prints above your bed is one of the easiest ways to instantly make your bedroom feel more expensive and luxurious than it is. Hanging prints above your bed gives that hotel feel that everyone wants to achieve.

If you don’t know what kind of prints to get, here are a couple affordable options that would go well with a variety of decor styles!

2. Get a Cute Headboard

Your headboard sets the tone for your whole room. A headboard can be a whole decor piece in itself, or you can keep it more understated so that other aspects of your room remain emphasized.

If you want something that makes more of a statement without being too over-the-top, I found a couple great options. This textured headboard on Etsy adds a little more dimension to your room while still allowing space for other decor.

I also love this velvet rounded headboard from Etsy. It gives your bedroom more of a quaint hotel vibe that will keep you feeling cozy and luxurious at the same time!

3. Play With Textures

Remember that nice decor doesn’t just come from colors and patterns. Texture also plays a huge role!

Whenever you’re looking for decor pieces, whether you’re looking for statement pieces or subtle decor, look for texture. You can add texture through blankets, pillows, headboard, or art hung on the wall.

Here are a couple options of textured decor items, like a knitted throw blanket and a wooden headboard! These are still both neutral but add some uniqueness to the room through the texture.

4. Get a Beautiful Bedding Set

Your bedding set really does determine the whole look of your room.

If you keep it neutral, your room will look large, tidy, and minimalistic.

If you get busy, patterned bedding, then you can build decor around it to keep your room feeling cohesive and representative of your personality.

You can also bring beautiful textures and patterns into your bedding. I love this bedding set from pottery barn!

There’s also a beautiful subtle pattern on this bedding set from Amazon, which is perfect if you want a pattern without making your room feel too busy.

5. Decorate With Plants

Adding plants to your room will make your space feel alive (literally) and natural.

Whether it’s a simple succulent, a vase of flowers, or even a pretty fake plant, keeping plants in your room will add some beautiful decor and make it feel well put together.

Here are a couple options for low-maintenance and faux potted plants from Amazon!

6. Add a Floor or Wall Mirror

Hanging a full-length mirror from the wall or even leaning it up against the wall will instantly make your room feel more expensive.

Another reason why it’s great to have a full-length mirror in your room is because a mirror will make your room feel even bigger than it is. This is a great hack if you have a small bedroom to make it feel even bigger!

Check out these elegant mirrors I found on Amazon.

7. Get a Cute Essential Oil Diffuser

You might not immediately think of an oil diffuser as apartment bedroom decor, but think about how the smell of a room impacts your impression of it.

Don’t you want to always walk into a room that smells relaxing and fresh?

Plus, you can get really cute and aesthetically pleasing diffusers like this earth toned diffuser from Urban Outfitters, or even this disco ball diffuser from Amazon if you’re looking for something more spunky!

8. Hang Up Curtains

You might already have blinds or shutters built into your room, so you think you don’t need curtains.

Or maybe you simply don’t like shutting out the natural light.

But from a decor perspective, hanging curtains will instantly elevate the look of your room and make it feel more expensive.

Have you ever been to a hotel with no curtains? Probably not! So, hanging even the simplest curtains will elevate the look of your room and make it feel cozier.

9. Get a Cozy Rug

A rug will absolutely make your room feel more homey!

Having a rug in your room gives it the feeling of being more comfortable and lived-in. Having that lived-in look and feel will make you feel right at home in your bedroom.

10. Make an Accent Wall

There are several different ways you can create an accent wall that will achieve a more expensive look.

You can simply paint one wall a different color from the rest, drawing the eye to that side of your room. Or, you can add texture to your wall. You can even create a gallery wall or add floating shelves with different types of decor to switch up the environment.
