Your bedroom should be the one place in your house that you feel completely comfortable and can be completely yourself. But for many people, looking at their bedrooms, you can’t seem to find anything about their personality or who they really are. Luckily, with a few adjustments, you can turn your bedroom into the perfect place to tap into the real you, regardless of whether you share a bedroom with a partner or you’re living in an assisted living facility.

To help you see how this can be done, here are three ways to bring more of your personality into your bedroom decor.

Choose Bedding You Love

For many people, the bedding that they have on their beds has just been the bedding that they’ve been using for years. While it may have appealed to you when you first got it, as long as it was you who chose that bedding in the first place, it may not accurately represent who you are now and what you like to look at. 

If this is the case for you, one of the first things you should do to bring more of your personality into your bedroom is to choose bedding that you love. Whether it’s a color and pattern that makes you happy or a branded blanket from a fandom that you love, this big piece of furniture in your bedroom should be something that really represents you and what you love. 

Add Accessories That Work For You

When you think about the basics in every bedroom, things like a bed, a dresser, and a mirror are usually the bare minimum. However, if you want your bedroom to really feel like you, you may find that some of your bare minimum accessories will vary based on what you like and what you need in your space. 

For example, you might not like the look of having a bedside table right next to you. But for others, they might have to have a large bedside table to fit everything that they want to keep within arm’s reach. Additionally, you might want a larger seating area in your room so that you can read or do other hobbies in this space. But for others, focusing more on the bed and those accessories may be more important. So rather than setting up a bedroom how you think you should, set it up in a way that will work best for you

Consider Open Shelving Options

In a bedroom, it’s usually best to keep clutter to a minimum. But for people who want to display things about their life that represent their personality, it can be hard to find the balance between limiting clutter and showcasing their knick-knacks.

To find a happy medium here, consider installing some open shelving options in your bedroom. This way, you can have a place to put all of your things while also keeping them out in the open for you and anyone else entering your room to enjoy seeing. 

If you’re ready to make your bedroom decidedly yours, consider using the tips mentioned above to help you in doing this.
