For most people, the bedroom is a space dedicated to sleeping and perhaps getting ready in the morning. You probably barely visit the room the rest of the day. However, that doesn’t mean it is not important or worthy of your best decorating efforts.

The bottom line is that you sleep for approximately one-third of your life. You need the place you sleep in to be comfortable and conducive to sleep.

One of the best approaches to getting the balance right in your bedroom is to keep the walls neutral and use soft furnishings to add colour. This includes the following five options 

1. Add A rug

The simplest and most effective way to add a splash of colour to your bedroom is by adding a rug. It can be placed at the foot of the bed, one on each side, or you can even get a rug that your bed sits on. 

You can opt for one of these stunning beige rugs here which add texture and warmth without needing to be replaced every season. Of course, you can also choose the latest colour trend. Unfortunately, this means you will probably need to change the rug every season. 

If you’re looking for a long-lasting and low-maintenance option for your room, consider the modern design of cowhide rugs. Not only are they renowned for their unique style, but they’re also highly durable and require minimal upkeep. These rugs come in various colors, from classic white and brown to more vibrant shades like orange and red. However, ensuring this style aligns with your room’s overall aesthetic is vital before purchasing. Take the time to carefully consider your options and choose a rug that complements your existing decor and meets your practical needs.
