14 impossibly romantic bedroom ideas
Is your bedroom a haven of love… or a passion killer you can’t wait to get out of? If it’s the latter, you need our romantic room ideas. Easy and fun, they’re guaranteed to put the oomph back into your bedroom decor – and add some spice to your love life.
So follow our bloggers’ tips to say goodbye to date nights out and hello to romantic evenings in.
1. Personal décor
Hang a selection of your favourite Polaroid photos of the two of you on a piece of string, to remind you of your favourite times together. Use small wooden pegs to attach them for a cute, quirky look.
2. Show off cards
Save pretty Valentine’s or birthday cards – they can double up as romantic decorations for a bedside table or dresser, particularly if you put them in a frame.
3. Flower power
Fill vases with fresh flowers and place them around your room, to add a soft and sensual feel. If your other half doesn’t surprise you with a bunch, it’s time to treat yourself.
4. Clear the clutter
Create a more romantically inviting space by banishing mess – a clutter-free bedroom will help you relax and focus on each other.

5. Hang fairy lights
Drape some fairy lights above your bed or hang them from the bed frame – the warm glow will help create a soft, romantic atmosphere.
6. DIY bedding
Use fabric paint to spell out a message to your loved one on your pillowcases. It’s easier than you’d think, and a great way to show how much you care.
7. Bring a balloon
A helium balloon instantly creates a sense of occasion. Choose a colour that suits the décor in your room – red isn’t always best!
8. Play cupid
Craft a love arrow from a stick and some paper or card, then tie on a little love note and leave it on your partner’s pillow for them to discover.
9. Love jars
For a thoughtful gift that won’t break the bank, surprise your partner with a jar filled with written notes saying what you love most about them.

10. Warm things up
There’s nothing less romantic than shivering in the cold. So make sure your bedroom is at a comfortable temperature and use candles to increase the feeling of warmth.
11. Think about colour
Use accessories to introduce a temporary accent colour into your room. Remember, there are alternatives to red – blush pink is a flirty option.
12. Play with texture
Add texture to your bed to awaken your sense of touch. Velvet throws are great for creating a sensual ambience in no time at all.
13. Perfect pillows
To leave your partner a lingering reminder of you, lightly spritz pillows with your favourite perfume. Plump your pillows afterwards, for a bed dressed to perfection.
14. Get arty
Lift the room (and your mood) by hanging inspiring messages on the walls. Frame your favourite romantic quote and place it in an eye-catching position – it can make a great alternative to a traditional card.
