You’re going to love these cozy bedroom decor ideas for couples! The tips on not only the decor, but what to eliminate to create a cozy retreat are so helpful!
Do you long to make your bedroom feel more like a retreat? The bedroom is the one place where we can come as we are, completely uninhibited.
As any women who goes on Pinterest knows, there are a lot of ideas out there!
And while I know that the look of a bedroom is part of making your bedroom feel more cozy and personal, I can say that what’s just as important is the feel of what you’re putting in your bedroom.
The items work to exude a vibe, to compliment the room and give you those cozy feelings.
Cozy Bedroom Decor Ideas For Couples
Your bedroom should be your oasis.
How do you do this?
By bringing in items that calm and relax you and decluttering things that have the opposite effect.
To make your bedroom feel more relaxing and romantic, have some candles standing on your dresser.
You don’t need to swarm the furniture with candles of course, but even having one candle standing instantly adds that cozy touch to the space.
You can even buy fake pillar candles that look real if you’d rather not have real ones.
I’ve even used fake tea lights and stuck them inside a smaller lantern for a beautiful farmhouse look.
You can also bring in plants or flowers (faux or real, whichever you prefer)!
The quickest way to bring some life to a room is using plants. They are so versatile, there are so many options and they make the whole bedroom feel more fresh.
You can experiment with different sizes – perhaps one large plant and a few smaller ones.
Another great way to add some coziness to your bedroom is to display some personal photos of you and your loved one.
The personal touch instantly creates a romantic vibe.
I have a framed photo of my husband and I on each of our nightstands and I love the reminder of this space being intimate and personal.
However, if you’re not into the photos, then you could also hang up some art or signs instead.
I love this home decor idea for a bedroom because it’s versatile.
Not only can you keep a few books you’re reading on your dresser or nightstand, you can also use them as a stack for height just to add some texture and interest to the room.
5. Focal Point.
Whether it’s your headboard, an accent wall, or an extravagant light fixture, choose one item or feature that will really stand out in the room.
This will keep the space balanced and allow you to work around this focal point for the rest of the bedroom.
One of the biggest transformations we did for our master bedroom was installing a panel feature wall – it was easy and didn’t cost us an arm and a leg either!
It gave the room a whole new look and we just love being able to spend time in this space we created.
Now, to switch gears, here are some things to consider removing or decluttering.
- TV’s or Laptops.
I know this is a hot button topic, whether or not to have a TV in the bedroom but for us it’s a big no-no.
The bedroom is supposed to be a distraction-free zone, the place where you and your husband can reconnect.
Therefore, a TV is just a temptation in the bedroom as it’s going to eat away quality time from you and your spouse if you let it.
2. Laundry Baskets.
Once this item takes permanent residence in the bedroom, we can easily become desensitized to it and don’t remove it until it’s overflowing with clothes and stressing us out.
It may work for some people to keep one to pile the dirty clothes, but I usually return my basket down to the basement (where our laundry room is) so that I have less clutter in our bedroom.
You’d be amazed at the difference this one trick alone can make in the look and feel of your bedroom.
It allows the rooms to breathe and lets the cozy decor for you as a couple come shining through.
3. Odds and Ends.
If there’s one thing that quickly adds up in our bedroom, it’s water bottles.
My husband always brings one with him before bed, and I’m kind enough to always take it to the recycling the next morning.
I know I could leave it for him, but then I’d have to wait until the end of the week before he’d remove them.
I’m too OCD for that. And again, I want the bedroom to feel cozy and relaxing when I come into it, not cluttered and stressful.
(This doesn’t mean it looks perfect or that there’s never a mess, but it keeps things tidy and much more manageable).
Whatever that thing is that tends to pile up on your dresser or nightstand, make note of it and make a plan to start removing or tidying those items every day.
4. Bills or Paperwork.
So romantic, right? 😉
The nightstand should not be storage for bills and other paperwork.
The easiest way to combat this is to purchase a bin or plastic drawer organizer and place it in a different part of the home.
We shouldn’t be reminded of these tasks when we enter our bedroom – it’s supposed to be a cozy oasis right?
5. Strewed Jewelry.
This is another thing that can quickly turn into a cluttered mess on dressers.
You can find so many kinds of jewelry organizers or even create your own.
I have a small tray for our perfume bottles as well – it makes the space look more cohesive.
Hooks and smaller trays are great additions to keep things organized.
