1.Luxury Bedding

As we get started, we recommend you read our decorate and design bedroom guide first before reading on. It will help you get a feel for everything on this list.

For luxury bedding, we recommend the Pure Parima Certified Egyptian Cotton Sheet. Coming in a variety of styles and colors, it will be perfect for any bedroom. We think it’s worth really investing in your bedsheets and getting only the finest that you can. Here, we’ve compiled the essential pros and cons.

ProsCons
Softness—you can’t really beat Egyptian cotton. It certainly deserves its reputation as one of the softest materials available for bedding, and that’s no exaggeration. These sheets will feel like a cloud against your skin.Piling—some have reported that the sheets begin to start piling after around a year of use. Proper care is important with sheets like these, but they, unfortunately, won’t last forever.
Highly breathable—these pure cotton sheets can absorb excess moisture from your body, which will keep you cool during the night. Excess heat can be one of the biggest impediments to a good night’s sleep.Price—depending on what size of bed you need these sheets for, they are not exactly cheap. They should last for a good while if always washed carefully, but depending on your budget, it could be more than you want to pay.

2.Sofa Bed

Sofa beds are always a great choice if you have space as an easy way to provide somewhere for guests to sleep. Our recommendation for a sofa bed mattress is this lovely, soft DynastyMattress Memory Foam Mattress. Its soft, springy material molds to your most comfortable sleeping position for maximum comfort.

ProsCons
Memory Foam Gel—Memory Foam has gained a well-deserved reputation as one of the most comfortable sleeping materials. One of the most common reasons for discomfort at night is poor alignment of the spine and neck; Memory Foam molds your shape to make sure the alignment is just right.Odor—many have reported having an uncomfortable issue with the smell of the material. This can depend on how sensitive you are to these kinds of things, but the fact is that the material does have a particular odor. It will not linger forever, but it could take a while before you don’t notice it anymore.
Perfect for guests—whether the kids are visiting for the weekend or you’ve got the whole family over at Thanksgiving, this will be the most comfortable guest bed they’ve ever slept on.Expansion—often, Memory Foam mattresses will ship in vacuum-sealed plastic, and some mention that they don’t always expand as far as they would like. It usually will expand to the advertised 4 inches, but some have mentioned it has not grown more than 3.

3.Plants

Plants, in my opinion, are the single most uplifting thing you can add to a room. Bright green, living things that will grow and provide a healthier home by filtering out carbon dioxide and increasing oxygen levels in your bedroom. Plants have so much variety recommending which to get would be its own article. These hangers, however, are perfect for almost any plant and will look great in your room.

ProsCons
One size fits most—these hanging ropes will fit almost any pot you want to put in them, giving you virtually any option for what you want to put in there. They have their limits, of course, but the hangers are very sturdy, and you’d be surprised how far they stretch. Requires hanging—these will require hanging from a wall or ceiling, so you’ll need to be willing to hammer the hooks into your walls or ceiling. It can make it a little trickier to figure out where to put them instead of simply a standing pot.
Unique designs—these hangers aren’t just functional, either. They have a variety of beautiful designs and arrangements and would look good virtually anywhere. Great for your bedroom, but they’d look good on the porch too!Pots not included—you’ll need to buy pots separately. These hangers are great value for the price and look fantastic, but you’ll need to get your own pots elsewhere as they are omitted here.

4.Art

Carefully arranged art is another perfect way to brighten up a bedroom. If you’re looking to remodel your bedroom on a budget, we have a ton of great ideas here.

Nowadays, it’s much easier to find art that speaks to you than ever before. Etsy is a great place to look. They have virtually any art you could want, and you’re buying directly from the artist. Every kind of style and genre of art you could imagine is available on Etsy.

ProsCons
Aesthetic statements—art comes in infinite variety, so it’s the perfect way to express your individual aesthetics. It’s best to really take the time to browse until you find something you love.Price—good quality art isn’t always cheap. Of course, you might simply be looking for something small which doesn’t break the bank. However, any large piece of art is, rightfully, going to be quite expensive. Artists put a lot of time and work into their pieces, and materials aren’t cheap.
Color and style—although we don’t really talk about it as much once we stop being kids, people do still have favorite colors. Art is a really great way to add bold color to your bedroom as bare walls can be so oppressive to look at.Hanging—hanging isn’t always easy. Again, the safest option is to hook, which will require some drilling into your walls to hang them up safely. There are a variety of adhesive strips available which come off without damaging your walls, but hooks are a bit safer.

5.Neon Lights

Neon lights are another great way to make a bold statement, and you can even get personalized, custom neon lights made on Etsy. It can say and look however you imagine it, and these beautiful, colorful lights again add immeasurable color and style to your bedroom. Even if you don’t have anything you’d want on a personalized sign, there are still great endless options of premade designs.

ProsCons
Variety—Custom neon lights are the perfect way to have a personalized display in your bedroom. Whatever it shows that has meaning to you will look exciting in the form of a neon light.Noise—through indoor neon lights are obviously not as noisy as outdoor signs on the exterior of buildings; your custom neon sign is nonetheless likely to put out a slight buzzing sound. Again, this depends on how sensitive you are to noises.
Ambiance—I’ll get into this more with the light products I’ll be looking at, but neon lights understandably provide ambiance. You can leave the big, oppressive lights off and be just lit dimly by your neon sign.Should be left on—it may sound counter-intuitive, but your neon light will actually last longer if you leave it on all the time, according to business people who use neon signs. Obviously, neon signs are far larger than what you’ll have in your bedroom. But if you can’t sleep without total darkness, your sign might not last as long.

6.Seating

Your bedroom isn’t just for sleeping. It would be best if you had somewhere to sit, too, for any number of reasons. If you’re getting dressed, getting ready to go out, or maybe you just wanted to kick back in your sanctuary with a book and shut the world out. We recommend this giant Chill Sack Bean Bag Chair. Melt into this enormous ball of softness and watch your troubles drift away.

Be sure to check out these 5 items that every bedroom needs to help with your seating issues!

ProsCons
Comfort—this bean bag chair is also made with that incredibly comfortable memory foam, meaning you won’t just sink into the floor like most beanbags. It will mold itself around you, giving you the best possible comfort and support.Extra foam—you may need to buy some extra bags of memory foam to get it to the consistency and firmness levels you’re looking for. Some who have bought several have reported that the firmness is not necessarily consistent. This depends, though, on your own personal preference.
Color choice—this beanbag comes in over 30 colors, so you’re bound to be able to find a color that matches your bedroom design.Smell—just like the mattress, people also reported that the chair has a slight chemical smell when first removed from the packaging. This shouldn’t last long, however, so it’s not a big problem.

7.Lighting

I mentioned ambiance earlier, and this is the essential part of decorating your bedroom. General ambiance will, of course, be down to your room as a whole, but the best and most important way to create ambiance is through lighting. The large light which illuminates your whole room is a crime against ambiance and should only be used when you’re looking for something. For the best lighting for your bedroom, we recommend these Aluminum LED Wall Sconces, which come as a set of two. 

ProsCons
Ambiance—having smaller, less bright lights in your room is essential to creating a pleasant mood and atmosphere. The ambiance might also be called the atmosphere. Less brightly lit rooms are much deeper in atmosphere and mood.Cord length—you could be a bit limited by the cord length of these lights, depending on where you want to put them. They will need to reach a socket somewhere. If you don’t want to hardwire them, of course, which you can do, but this is no small job.
Hang anywhere—these lights are perfect for creating a mood as you can hang them anywhere; they will look best in your bedroom. Either side of your bed, slightly raised, is a great option. Having the light source come from behind you makes the ambiance even more pleasant.Bulbs are not dimmable—different people like different light levels, and, unfortunately, the bulbs that come with these lights are not dimmable. The level of light they give off is what you will be stuck with unless you replace them with dimmable bulbs.

8.Speakers

I love to have some sound on in my bedroom, whatever I happen to be doing. In the evening, ambient sounds and music are a great way to unwind and get your mind ready for sleep. Or, on the other hand, it’s great to have your favorite songs blasting while you’re getting ready. Either way, we recommend this 4th Gen Amazon Echo, not just a speaker but a smart home hub with Alexa built-in. 

ProsCons
Premium sound—the Echo boasts high, dynamic mids and rich, deep bass for the kind of atmospheric sound you’d need to go to a concert for in the past. Both the components and the smooth, round design of the product mean it will pour your music into every corner of the room in stunning high quality.Microphone quality—some have reported that the microphone quality in the 4th Generation Echo leaves something to be desired compared to previous models. It’s not always as smooth as possible, although this is likely to vary between individual units. Most don’t have such a problem with the microphone.
Smart hub—this Echo is more than a fantastic speaker. Any compatible devices like your smartphone, tablet, or even your refrigerator, your Echo will be able to communicate with it. The applications of smart home hubs are endless, but in your bedroom, it’s great for anything you forgot to do before getting cozy in bed, like switch off the lights.No internal battery—the Echo does need to be plugged in at all times. This does mean it will have to stay in one place if you don’t want to unplug it and plug it back in every time. This is compared to many wireless speakers and can be very easily moved around rooms.
