Your bedroom is your sanctuary. It is your safe space, and the only place where you get to be yourself. If you feel the same way, then there is no harm in upgrading the look of your master bedroom to incorporate more of your personality in it.

A simple new splash of color on the wall or a modern lamp can make all the difference. If you are looking to upgrade your mattress, you can look over at Kate Barrington at BedAdvisor for some great recommendations. The thing is, you don’t have to redo your floor plan or break down the existing walls of your bedroom. There are a lot of simple things that you can do or add to what you already have that will certainly make your room more beautiful.

6 Upgrades That You Can Do on Your Master Bedroom

1. Buy New Beddings

A new mattress can be a breath of fresh air to your bedroom. Since your bed is one of the main attractions of your bedroom, it is essential to keep it pretty and well-maintained.

In addition to buying new beddings, not only does it add to the overall look of the bedroom, but it also provides superb comfort and increases overall sleep quality.

When you have settled on your perfect mattress, you can mix and match your covers to create an overall theme for your bedroom. And don’t forget about changing your headboards if your old one doesn’t fit in with the new overall theme of your bedroom. While this may not seem like a significant change, it can really enhance the design aesthetic of your bedroom, so should be something worth changing if you want to improve all areas. 

2. Get New Wallpapers

Wallpapers are easily customizable, and they are also easy to put up. If you do not have much time to paint your entire bedroom, you can simply opt just to have removable wallpapers installed. Because they are easy to put up and remove, you can change them as much as you want whenever you want.

For getting the best results, it is better to have a color palette or theme in place before deciding on your wallpaper. When you have a theme, the whole design of the bedroom will fall into place.

3. Clear Out All The Things That Don’t Bring You Joy

That’s right, one way to upgrade your bedroom is to listen to Marie Kondo and start decluttering your space.

A clean bedroom is a refreshing sight for sore eyes. Decluttering doesn’t mean that you throw away your things. You can simply start by organizing them properly and investing in storage accessories wherein you can easily store them.

However, there is no harm in giving away things that you no longer need as other people might benefit from it. 

4. Invest In Plants

Houseplants are becoming stylish bedroom decor nowadays. They help make your shelves appear brighter, they can be a great stress reliever, and it can also help increase productivity. You can keep them on your work desks or your bedside table.

Here are some examples of famous plants that you can use in your bedroom as decor:

  • Snake Plant
  • Philodendron
  • English Ivy
  • Golden Pothos
  • Indoor Cacti

In addition to all that, having plants as decor can help to improve air quality inside your bedroom.

5. Don’t Forget Your Floors

Now that you are aware of how to improve your walls don’t forget to include your floors in your plans. You can start by investing in a rug that you can put under your bed or next to your sofa.

Adding a rug to your bedroom can make the entire space look larger. Rugs also make your area appear softer and can be welcoming for others to sit and relax. For a durable and natural option, consider comfortable custom sisal rugs, which offer both softness and a unique, tailored look to match your decor.

If you’re thinking of changing how your floors look, you can add vinyl floors as well. Similar to linoleum, vinyl flooring is excellent in providing good durability for its cost as it is water and stain-resistant. It is also economical and comes in different sizes and designs, which makes it aesthetically pleasing.

6. Lighting Fixtures

Apart from rugs, lights also make your room appear brighter and bigger. Before you go all crazy buying lamps and bulbs all around, make sure that you will match the look of your bedroom.  You should carefully choose from the three kinds of indoor lighting which are, task, accent, and ambient lighting fixtures to complement your bedroom. 

Proper lighting helps set up the mood of your bedroom, which can help you feel more relaxed, especially after a stressful day at work. Also, the right lighting makes you more productive. If you have a study/work area in your bedroom, you should keep that area adequately illuminated.


Upgrades in your bedroom don’t have to be hard or expensive. You can make your space better by buying new bedding, getting new wallpapers, cleaning out your room, getting a small plant, investing on your floors, and adding lights to your bedroom. Keep it simple, and you will see that even little things can make a great difference.
