How To Make Your Room Look Cool

Designing your bedroom is a very personal thing, but it can be easy to feel overwhelmed and get stuck for inspiration.

If you're wondering how to make your room look cool, you're in the right place.

In this article, I will cover a few ideas on how to make your room look cool! Let's get started.

Before you get started decorating your room, it's important to decide the look that you're going for.

Making your room look cool is a very subjective thing, as one person's idea of 'cool' is different from another person's idea of 'cool'.

Bearing this in mind, you will first need to decide the look you're going for.

How would you describe your style? Are you a minimalist?

If you are a minimalist, then you probably don’t want to spend time filling your room with unnecessary items.

On the other hand, if you consider yourself to be a maximalist, then you might want to consider adding some accessories.

A minimalist interior should be clean, simple, and uncluttered.

The key to achieving this look is to remove clutter from your home.

This means keeping only those items that truly add value to your life, and the decor in your bedroom should reflect this too!

On the other hand, being a maximalist means having lots of stuff around you.

It's about creating an environment where you can relax and enjoy yourself, but is about creating a space that is bold and that demands attention.

Determining the look you're going for first and foremost will make the choice of deciding which ideas to take and to leave much easier depending on what you decide!

Below are a few ideas on how to make your room cool!

How To Make Your Room Look Cool

Make A Feature Wall

If you don't want to paint your entire room, painting a feature wall is a great way of bringing focus to one particular area of your room.

This could be done by simply choosing a color that contrasts well with the rest of your room or by using patterned wallpaper.

The key when choosing an accent wall is to choose something that makes sense within the overall design of the room.

For example, if you have a modern-looking room, then a bright orange accent wall won't work at all.

Instead, you'll try something more neutral like white or gray.

Paint Two Walls Facing Each Other

Instead of painting just one accent wall, you could always paint two walls facing each other to create an asymmetrical space.

You could go for a contrasting color scheme or use a similar color palette.

You can also create a unique look by using a funky wallpaper design if you'd prefer.

Add A Picture Collage

Another option is to hang pictures on the walls. There are many ways to do this, such as hanging them vertically or horizontally.

Hanging pictures not only adds to the design of a room but also adds a personal touch!

After all, who doesn't like having one place to see all your memories with friends and family?

Add Shelves To Your Walls

Shelving is a great way to store books, records, and other belongings that you like on display but don't want taking up too much floor space.

It's also a good way to display artwork or collectibles.

If you've got a lot of books, you can even order them in rainbow order to make another feature on the wall!

Create Your Own Art To Display

Create Your Own Art To Display

Whether you do art as a hobby, or even just like the look of it, why not try creating your own to display in your room?

Simply get a few canvases, some paint, and allow yourself to really get creative!

Add An Egg Chair Or Bean Bag

Depending on your budget, I always think adding another seating area is cool in the bedroom.

If you've got the budget for it, why not try adding an egg chair or bean bag?

Not only is it somewhere you or your guests can chill, but it also means you've got your very own reading corner!

Add Lamps

Lighting is everything when it comes to creating an atmosphere in your bedroom.

Adding a few statement lamps can really transform the space, and means that you don't have to rely on the harsh light of the main light in the room!

Use Color In The Right Places

While it may seem obvious, you should never add too much color to a room.

If you have a small space, for instance, it might be best to stick to neutrals like whites to make the room look bigger than it is.

Add Posters Or Art To The Walls

Another way to make your room look cool is to add posters or art to the walls!

Prints are hugely popular at the moment, and can transform a plain colored room with bright colors that you've not had to paint yourself!

Alternatively, if you have the budget for it, you could opt for high-end pieces of art.

Add Bookends To The Shelves

You could also try adding bookends to the shelves!

While you can get super simple bookends, there are also a variety of more intricate bookends that are both a statement piece and work to keep your books in one place on the shelf!

Although designing your room is subjective to you, these are just a few ideas to bear in mind next time you're feeling uninspired by the space.

Another tip is to do more research, read magazines, and even check out social media apps to see what the latest trends are.

However, if you'd rather something more timeless, always make sure that you love the design that you're creating!

Because if you love it, then it'll be timeless to you.


There are many ways to make your room look cooler.

From choosing a feature wall to painting two walls together, there are plenty of options available.

Now that we've covered a few ideas on how you can make your room look cool, I hope you have plenty of inspiration for designing your room!

Good luck making your room look cool!
