Add a splash of colour to the walls:
The first thing you need to focus on is the walls. They cover the most landscape and upgrading them can make the whole room stand out. Therefore, consider repainting the walls in any colour of your choice.
Instead of choosing the generic pink and purple, look at some unique and new colour pallets to give your room a more modern appearance.
Painting the walls before you move towards any other form of decoration is important because the colour of the walls sets the mood for the colour pallet of the whole room. It makes it easier for you to buy furniture, bedsheets and other decor items. Hence, take some time and look at some photos for inspiration so that you can select the perfect colour for your bedroom.

Upgrade the lighting:
When it comes to decor and design, proper lighting is essential. Bad lighting can make the best-decorated rooms look dull and drab. Therefore, get rid of the old fluorescent bulbs and overhead lights, and use some modern lighting fixtures to illuminate your bedroom.
Select a couple of stylish wall sconces and add some elegant table lamps to your room. You can also add some cute string lights to decorate your room and create a dreamy ambience.
When you are decorating your room, you need to consider the flow of natural light. Creating large windows can allow natural light in and make the room look more open and airier.
Get a new bed and some bedsheets:
The bed is the centrepiece of any bedroom, and it has to be decorated to match the mood of the space. For a quick, easy and affordable upgrade, you can repaint the bed frame, or if you have the budget, you can buy a new one.
Consider adding a canopy bed to your daughter’s room; it will be the perfect addition to the room of your little princes as it can evoke a sense of elegance and luxury without costing you a fortune. You don’t have to add any heavy drapes to a modern canopy bed; however, if you add some string lights on the frame, it will look gorgeous.
Add some artworks, and photos on the walls:
The walls of your room have a lot more potential for decoration than a fresh coat of paint. It would be best if you were looking for some stylish and modern art pieces to add to the walls. The artwork allows you to customize the appearance of your room according to your hobbies and passions.
If you don’t want to hang paintings, you can always put up some posters of your favourite musicians or films. Framed photos also make a great addition to the walls. Consider creating photo collage on one of the walls.
Create a layered effect:
Layering is an interior design concept that is used by many luxury decorators, and it is perfect for a girl’s bedroom. It involves creating layers in your decor by adding rugs, throw pillows, blankets and upholsteries.
You can add a set of decorative pillows on the bed to make it look marvellous and super comfortable. Adding stylish and elegant drapes on the windows is also a great way to achieve the layered effect.
Create a makeup and dressing area:
A makeup area is a staple of any girl’s room. You should add a full-length mirror on one of the walls near the dresser. Adding some makeup lights on the sides of the mirror will make it look more lavish and tasteful.
If you have the budget, you should create a full-size walk-in closet. It will add a touch of luxury to the room, and you will also get a lot of extra space for storage.
Create modern storage fixtures and eliminate clutter:
Clutter is the worst enemy of sophisticated design and decor. If you don’t know what you’re doing, it is easy to clutter up the room with loads of different furniture pieces and decorative ornaments.
For the perfect modern and lavish appearance, you need to take a minimal approach towards the decoration of your room. Look for signature pieces that resonate with your personality and avoid items that don’t have any use in the room.
The size of the furniture is also quite impactful, a room filled with large and bulky furniture pieces can start to look like an IKEA store, which probably isn’t the look you want. For a girl’s bedroom, you should look for some sleek and voguish furniture pieces that go with the minimal theme of the room.
Creating proper storage fixtures is also essential if you want to eliminate clutter. It isn’t that much of a problem in a large bedroom, however for smaller ones, you should learn how to maximize the use of free space.
Creating vertical shelves, or drawers under the bed are a couple of excellent ways to increase storage in a small bedroom.
Lastly, we would like to say that there isn’t any hard and fast rule for the decoration of a room. Though these tips can help you start on the right path, you should trust your instincts and your taste when you are decorating a bedroom. Therefore, instead of worrying about the decor of your room being up to date, go for the designs that speak to you on an intuitive level.
