The most classic bedroom foldout piece of furniture, of course, is the Murphy bed. This is a terrific option for an alcove in a studio apartment or a guest bedroom that pulls double duty as a den or home office. It can even be useful if you simply have a small bedroom without sufficient functional space for storage furniture as well as a bed. Today’s Murphy beds are well-designed, comfortable and often incorporate other design features such as shelving or desks.
Adding a luxe-looking headboard is a surefire way to increase the glam factor in your bedroom. A beautiful one need not be expensive, but it should have a notable feature such as a bold color, unique shape, impressive height or elegant fabric such as linen or velvet.
Consider replacing ordinary door hardware with more stylish options. Handles and knobs in Lucite, modern brushed brass or polished chrome could give the room an updated feel. For a more cohesive, intentional look, coordinate your door hardware with your drawer pulls.
There are numerous ways to get creative with a bed wall. A mural, a featured paint color and even wallpaper can be cost-effective if you choose economical options. Creating a gallery wall above your bed can also be a way to add a personalized touch. Another idea is to showcase a cool headboard.
