Think About Your Color Choice 

First things first. Whether you want to admit it or not, color choice matters. This affects the entire mood of a room more than any other item on this list. This is not to say that there is a single color choice that is always going to be the best. It will depend upon the person, as tastes will vary naturally. Make sure that all of the items that you will be filling your room with will match with the color scheme to create a better overall effect. The difference between a bedroom that has a matching color scheme and furniture, versus one that does not, is quite noticeable to even the most untrained eyes.

Do Not Overestimate a Minimalistic Design

Quality is always going to matter much more than quantity when it comes to choosing pieces for your bedroom. Unless you have an absolutely gargantuan space to work with, you should probably be thinking about getting rid of items rather than getting more of them, if you are like most people. When you are going through the things that you plan to put into your new bedroom, you should carefully consider what the purpose of each piece really is and whether it should go there or not. If it is not necessary, try going without it to see if the more minimalistic approach is actually a better aesthetic for the room.

Make Sure That Your Furniture is Sized Properly

One of the worst things that you can do, whenever you are putting things into a new bedroom, is getting furniture that is not sized properly. If you have furniture that does not fit into your bedroom properly, there is literally nothing that you can do to make it look good. In most cases, it will not even fit at all. This will take a little bit of work, but as long as you have a measuring stick, this is something you can avoid entirely. Just make sure to do your homework before you make any new furniture purchases. If you are purchasing a new home to move into, measure the dimensions before so that you can decide if you want to get new furniture or not.

Invest in Some Good Window Coverings

Decisions are never as simple as it is when it comes to selecting whether or not to have curtains or something else covering your windows. While it may be more permissible to allow natural light to filter in at all times in the living spaces of your home, it is a necessity for the best quality sleep for you to have something that blocks out light in the bedroom. Luckily, there are plenty of high-quality blackout curtains available today that are also very beautifully designed. You can improve the feeling of being in your room as well as the look of it at the same time. This is definitely not an upgrade to skip out on.

Lighting Can Make All the Difference in the World

There are plenty of people who have great taste who end up dissatisfied with the final results of their room. They cannot quite put their finger on it, but it just does not feel right in there. In almost all cases, this is because they never put in any additional lighting or changed the light bulbs. Different types of lights glow at different temperatures and share more of the red or blue spectrums. This can have a significant effect on your perception of how things look in a room. Experiment with lighting until you find something that works for you.
