Metallic accents are set to be a big trend in 2018 so add a little luxury to your bedroom with tones of gold or copper. Replace a plain light fitting for something a little more glamourous, such as a statement pendant light or chandelier. Plush fabrics in rich tones will also add an air of elegance to the space – think velvet and silk or satin for throw cushions or curtains.

A quick and easy way to add interest to a neutral bedroom is to introduce some colour into the space. Whether you opt for a feature wall, bright soft furnishings or even a statement headboard in a vibrant hue, you’ll be amazed at what a difference a few pops of colour can make to a neutral room.

It’s the small touches that really add personality and charm to a space. If your current bedroom accessories are looking a little tired then it could be time for an update. Simply replacing lampshades, bedside lamps, photo frames and adding a new mirror will lift the room and give it a new lease of life. Styling your bedside table with a new light, a scented candle and a small vase of flowers is the perfect way to make a big difference with only a few small changes.

Simply changing the layout of your room will transform your space. Start with the large items of furniture (be sure to measure your bed and wardrobe to ensure they’ll fit in their new home before you start the heavy lifting!), then move on to small furniture, rugs and accessories.
