Wall Design Ideas to Add Personality to Your Bedroom

If you feel like your bedroom décor has become boring and old-fashioned or it lacks personality, and you want a little refresher – look no further than the walls. Whether you want to get one wall painted, add some posters or even put up a mirror, here are some ways you can change the vibe of your bedroom.


Metallic Look

Metallic wall texture paint gives your bedroom a touch of elegant glamour. You can have one wall coloured the shade of old copper or a plain colour with specs of gold. For the best effect, choose the focal wall for the metallic wall texture and use a darker base paint over the other walls.

Diamond Pattern

Diamond or Harlequin patterns give the bedroom a sophisticated look. A new trend is to apply this in an Ombre Effect for a chic look. An alternative would be the checkerboard pattern to add drama with a hint of sophistication.


Abstract Art Display

If the wall behind your headboard is used to display artwork, keep the paint colour simple. Adding texture or bright colours might be a little over the top.

Chalkboard Wall

This is a great idea for the children’s room. Having a black wall that doubles up as a chalkboard makes the room fun and functional.


Consider painting one wall with a map of the world. This can be educational and can also help you plan the next family vacation.

Wall Tapestry

A quick way to fill an empty wall would be to hang a wall tapestry. Depending on the print and the shades, this can add the right amount of texture to create an inviting sleeping space.



A great way to make the bedroom look fresh and feel cozy is to add some planters to the walls.

Monochromatic Photographs

To make the room meaningful, get a few special photographs blown up and changed to black and white. Put them in black or white frames and hang them behind the bed.

Fun Frames

Another way to add some colour and memories to the wall would be to hang pictures, travel momentos, maps, etc. in no particular structure, behind the bed.
