5 Bedroom Decorating Myths You Should Ignore


When you set-up and decorate any room in your house, people are quick to give advice. Most of the time the advice is welcome and helpful, but sometimes it’s best to experiment and figure things out for yourself. Here are the decorating myths you can now safely ignore.

White Bedding is too Clinical

While white bedding is traditionally considered to be a boring choice in bedding color, if you experiment with textures and layers, white bedding can be both chic and elegant.

Wallpaper is Dated

This is one myth we especially encourage you to ignore when you begin to decorate and style your bedroom. Wallpaper is a great way to create a feature wall in your bedroom and adds both color and texture to the overall decor. Using removable wallpaper means you can re-decorate whenever you feel like a change.

Your Mattress Must Have a Bed Frame

While most people will tell you this is crazy, just hear us out. Picking a bed frame is a difficult task. There are so many factors to consider such as size, shape, color, material, etc. and when you pick the right one it can become a focal point of your room. 

You can make your bed conspicuous however by the absence of a bed frame. This minimalistic style, with the right bedding, can give a modern vibe to your bedroom.

Fairy Lights Are For The Outdoors

You might have a stash of fairy lights that only come out at Christmas time to decorate your front porch and pool fence, but hanging fairy lights in your bedroom is an innovative and attractive way to bring light into your bedroom.

You Must Stick To One Color Scheme

While a monochromatic bedroom can look extremely chic, mixing colors and patterns throughout your bedroom is still an acceptable design concept. Experimenting with contrasting colors in your bedroom will create a young, fun, and vibrant atmosphere.
