Bedroom are our sanctuaries and bedroom design plays a role in our overall well-being and mental state. They are also our most intimate spaces where we spend most of our time with our partners. Romantic room decoration doesn’t have to difficult or costly, it can be a few easy ideas that can transform the space. However, we have also put together more permanent changes you can make to this space to turn it into a romantic bedroom of your dreams. Read on for our best romantic bedroom design ideas for a couple’s bedroom.



1.    Mood lighting is an important romantic room decoration

An oldie but a goodie, mood lighting can really change the way you perceive your surroundings. The key to up the romantic feel of the bedroom is to layer different ideas that work on various senses. A quick and easy way to add mood lighting is string lights draped around the bed frame or over the canopy. Make sure the lights emit a warm glow. Temporary romantic bedroom ideas include lighting oodles of tea light and pillar candles placed at different heights. If you want to add an olfactory layer, try sensual fragranced candles or even fresh flowers.

For cold climates, a fireplace could be a great idea. There are a lot of options available in the market including smokeless, electric ones with a minimally disruptive installation. If you want to cut out the heat but add the look and sound of a fireplace, an option is to play a digital file of a crackling fire on your bedroom television.  If you are looking to add permanent romantic lighting, try ceiling fixtures with dimmers or a vintage-style, ornate, Venetian or Moroccan hanging lamps that throw soft, diffused light and shadows.

2.    Soft layers enhance the romantic bedroom decoration

From plush headboards and mattresses to ultra-soft pillows and sheets, don’t underestimate the effect that hotel bed kind of comfort can have on the mood. Wood and metal headboards look great but they can be a tad uncomfortable so go in for one with padding. Consider tufted headboards; they can add a lot of drama to the bedroom design.   For bed linen, try Egyptian cotton, soft linen or silk and layer it with a plush throw.

3.    Four-poster beds scream romantic bedroom décor

If your room is big enough, you really can’t surpass the romance of a four-poster bed. Whether you leave it bare or cocoon the bed within sheer drapes, this type of bed can transform your space into a romantic royal bedroom design. Four-poster beds come in a myriad of design styles – covering everything from antique Old-World charm to sleek and modern – so no matter your personal style, you will find a romantic modern luxury bed design.

4.    Creating a romantic bedroom with colour

Colours play an important role in bedroom ideas for couples, however, the palette you choose will depend highly on your personal preferences. A few tried-and-tested romantic wall painting designs for the bedroom décor include soft, creamy whites or muted pastels layered with sheer fabrics and rustic décor. If you want to be adventurous, try dark shades like midnight blue, chocolate brown, burgundy, deep wine or dark green or you can also try a monochromatic scheme using light and dark shades of the same colour. Remember that lighting can change the way you perceive colours in your home so choose wisely.

5.    Nothing can beat the intimate look of a canopy in a romantic bedroom

Hanging sheers around or in front of your bed adds a layer of privacy to the bed. A ceiling-hung canopy that ties away during the day or sheers draped from a four-poster bed can bed just the romantic touch your bedroom need.

6.    Craft a cosy nook for a romantic bedroom design

Other than your bed, try to incorporate a cosy seating nook or lounging area in the bedroom. It is a great space for the two of you to relax and spend quality time together. Soft task lighting layered with comfortable upholstery and soft furnishings elevate this space. Two plush chairs with a small side table would work well; if you like the look of a chaise longue, make sure it is comfortable for two people to lounge on at the same time.

7.    Romantic bedroom design needs you to cut the clutter

Clutter, mess or an overly decorated bedroom can not only take away from the intimate vibe but also hinder your mental wellbeing. Craft enough storage within the room, keep it tidy and clear the clutter off nightstands and dressers. You don’t have to go in for stark minimalism but try to keep the design from venturing into visually busy and overwhelming. For a romantic bedroom, wall design doesn’t have to be bare but consider simple lines, soft patterns or calming art. 

8.    Live greens can enhance the romantic bedroom design

This bedroom corner exudes such a soothing, intimate vibe. A low bed draped with a sheer canopy paired with soft textures and pale white accentuated by natural fabrics and materials. But the highlight of the simple romantic room decoration is the layering of a variety of live plants. While I love tall potted plants, I am very partial to creepers swaying in the wind – perfectly romantic.

9.    Open the room out and accentuate the view for a romantic bedroom

The more open and airy the bedroom, the more soothing the visual which can greatly enhance the romanc.e factor. If you have a balcony, consider French windows or louvre shutters like in the image; sliding windows leave one section inaccessible. Consider tall even floor-to-ceiling windows wherever possible to accentuate the view. If you are lucky enough to have a great view - especially surrounded by nature - that still affords privacy, face the bed toward the view. There’s nothing like waking up to nature and feeling secluded with your partner.
