How to Easily Upgrade Your Bedroom Design
The bedroom is your sanctuary, or at least, you probably want it to be. It’s the space where you take refuge, where you can shut the door and have some quality “me” time. So don’t settle for four bland walls and a bed. You deserve something special!
Unexpected Bedroom Wall Ideas

The feature wall is a design element that has withstood the test of time, and for good reason. Having a clear focal point in a room is restful for the eyes (and therefore, the brain). Ideally, the wall you choose to be your feature -- or “accent” wall -- is the one that contains your existing focal point. In bedroom designs, the wall behind the headboard is a no-fail choice. But think beyond paint color to bedroom wall ideas that will inspire for years to come.

Since this is your own private space, your bedroom designs should also reflect your personality. In other words, you can be free to go a little wild here. Painted wood planks in natural shades might be just the thing to lift your spirits after a challenging day. You can even mix two or more colors for a playful look that would look equally divine in a kid’s room.

Enhance your wall with reclaimed wood planks only to chair rail height, and finish the rest with coordinating paint or paper above. Chair rail height typically means the bottom third portion of your wall, or up to 32” for a standard 8’ wall. Finish off the top row with wood or metal trim, depending on what looks best with the rest of your decor.

Electric fireplaces have come a long way, and are now available in a wide range of styles. They can also make a welcoming focal point in your bedroom design, especially if your furniture is understated.
Just apply peel and stick reclaimed wood to the wall and plug in a fireplace for an instantly dramatic upgrade. This bedroom wall idea can even look ultra modern if you choose a consistent wood finish with gray tones, and a sleek, wall-mounted fireplace.
Take It to the Top

The poor ceiling is so often neglected in do-it-yourself bedroom designs, but if you take the time to give it some love, you’ll be thanking yourself every time you lie down. Peel and stick reclaimed wood gives you a range of options that impart an organic, restful feeling. Try a weathered wood plank for a cozy, rustic style, or go with simple, natural wood for the serenity of a spa experience.

Rather than being matchy-matchy, she collects things that make her happy, including a brand new Golden Oak accent wall! Before I get to that, though, can I point out that her mid-century modern fireplace is the best?! She found it on Craigslist. Can you believe it?!
