Our bedrooms can often be the one room in the home that we pay little or no attention to. We tend to focus any home decorating efforts on the rooms that we might entertain in, for example, a kitchen or living space. However, a bedroom is a place you retire to each night, and for that very reason alone, should become more of a priority for how it looks and feels. After all, getting a restful night’s sleep could transform your entire day, your thought process, and your mood. Plus your bedroom should feel like a place of romance, an opportunity to rekindle the spark with your partner. So what should you do?

1. Add a feature wall that draws the attention
When looking to add drama and a sense of romance, a feature wall can work well. There are many different things you could consider. Wall hangings such as posters or tapestries are fast becoming trendy, and often can be a huge talking point. An elegant mirror is also highly romantic. Something more simple would be to add a different colored wall or even use photographs. They can be strategically placed and have a theme of their own. Such as black and white prints, for example.
2. Consider dramatic pieces of furniture
Sometimes drama and romance can mean big, and one of the biggest things in a bedroom is the furniture. So don’t be afraid to be bold in this area. If you want a four-poster bed and your room can handle it, then go for it. Big vintage style stand-alone wardrobes and matching sleigh beds are also a thing. The bed itself can be the element that gives that feeling of a romantic setting.
3. Do you have a theme for your bedroom?
Not all bedrooms need a theme, but it can help in regards to the decor and to give that feeling of romance. So think about the things that you display in your room, and add a sense of romance. For example, Paris is considered the city of love and romance so a French-themed bedroom should make anyone swoon.
4. Use natural light to create the sense of space
Natural light is a decorator’s secret weapon. It can completely transform a room. So when redesigning your bedroom open up the curtains or blinds, use lighter-colored materials, and let the natural light in. If you can’t, then why not try and use artificial light to create the feel. There are plenty of articles online highlighting how to do it.
5. Candles have an aphrodisiac effect
For when natural light isn’t available, and let’s admit that more romance happens at night. Candles can be a great way to add a sense of romance as well as provide the right amount of light to see the sexy silhouette of your partner. The candle’s scent is also important and can really set the mood.

You should also take time to consider the bed linen and soft furnishings that you have in your bedroom. Luxury and romance speak volumes with the materials you use, such as faux fur, soft cotton, and silks.
7. Consider the use of color to add drama
Finally, the use of color can be a great way to add a sense of romance to your bedroom. So don’t forget to add pops of color with the accessories you use and the way you style your room with things like bed linen and cushions. Red is the color of love, so this could be a great place to start. However, black and white can also be very sensual.
Hopefully, these suggestions will help you to create a romantic bedroom.
