Although it's often the overlooked room when it comes to design, there are plenty of decorative accents that will help bring your bedroom to life.

3 clever decorating ideas to add character to your bedroom

If the kitchen is the heart of the home, your bedroom is the soul. You retire here at the end of the day to relax, so it's only natural to want to create an oasis that is only yours.

1. Paint an accent wall

Painting your bedroom a single colour can overwhelm the room and may even make it feel smaller, particularly if you choose a dark colour.

  • Painting an accent wall is an excellent way to not only incorporate some colour, but also give your bedroom a bit of personality.
  • Bright, vibrant colours, such as lime green, can be invigorating, while warm colours are more relaxing.
  • If you like patterns, use painter's tape to create a few unique designs.
  • While any wall can be used as an accent, it's best to choose one that is perpendicular to the entry point for best impact.

2. Put up vinyl decals

Vinyl decals aren't just for showing support for your favourite team on the back of your vehicle. They also add a decorative touch to walls.

  • You'll find a variety of colours, designs, sizes and even word choices available.
  • Some stores, especially online retailers, make custom decals.
  • If you love damasks and flourishes, a few accent decals placed on a wall will add character to the room.
  • If there's a famous or inspirational quote that you love, put it above your bed so you'll see it every day and night.

3. Splurge on a decorative duvet set

Nothing makes a bedroom duller than a plain comforter or set of sheets.

  • Spice things up a little by splurging on a decorative duvet set. There are a variety of colour palettes and designs to choose from, ranging from subtle to more pronounced.
  • If you're looking for a way to add more character to the room, purchase throw pillows or decorative pillows in colours that complement your bedding. If your bedding is black and white, for example, a bright red or yellow decorative accent will tie everything together.

Keep it simple

Decorating your bedroom doesn't have to be a lengthy process.

  • With these three simple tips, your bedroom can look completely new in just a single day. Think about the elements and mood you want to capture, and incorporate them when you design your new retreat.
