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 the 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. With that in mind, here are some innovative ideas to help you add some drama to your bedroom.

Wall hangings such as posters or tapestries are fast becoming trendy, and often can be a huge talking point. 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.
Consider dramatic pieces of furniture
Sometimes drama 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.
