Whether you’re single, loved up or navigating an “it’s complicated” situation, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and it’s the perfect excuse to revamp your sleeping space with romantic bedroom décor. Looking for inspiration? We’ve got you covered with 8 romantic bedroom furniture ideas guaranteed to get sparks flying.

How to create a romantic bedroom…

1.    Romantic furniture

Furniture can instantly transform the look and feel of your living space and the bedroom is no exception. When it comes to romance, no one does it better than the French. After all, Paris isn’t known as the City of Love for nothing.

If you’re looking for ways to bring a touch of “amour” to your bedroom, look no further than our Romance range. Inspired by dreamy French chateaux and the lavish Rococo era, it’s easy to fall in love with this beautiful collection. The range is timeless with a dash of nostalgia, yet modern enough to merge seamlessly into contemporary homes. As such, this stunning bedroom furniture complements various décor styles.     

Expert craftsmanship and unrivalled attention to detail is what sets the Romance range apart. Think hand-carved bed heads, elegantly curved legs, sweetheart friezes and chamfered edges. It’s these features that make the collection one of the best romantic bedroom furniture ideas this Valentine’s Day. Choose from a true white finish for a bright aesthetic or antique white for a softer, more rustic feel.

2.    Supersize your bed

When it comes to romantic bedroom décor, the size of your bed frame and mattress can make all the difference. If you want to treat your Valentine to the ultimate romantic gesture, consider investing in a hand-carved king-size bed. Luxuriously spacious, king beds give you the option of cuddling up or stretching out to your heart’s content. So, whether you want to snuggle or starfish, it’s up to you!

For many people, king-size beds are reserved for luxury hotel rooms. But if you have the space, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy one in your own bedroom. If you want to recreate the romance of your honeymoon or capture the magic of a weekend spent at a boutique B&B in the countryside, a king bed is a worthwhile investment.

3.    Soften your look with luxe fabrics

Layering fabrics and textures is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to make your bedroom feel more romantic. Start with your bed linen, taking care to invest in high-quality sheets to create a hotel-inspired feel. Nothing feels more romantic than slipping into a set of luxuriously thick, ultra-soft 100% Egyptian cotton sheets.

Feather or down alternative pillows will help add to the plush, romantic feel of your bedroom. Cotton or silk is best for pillowcases, however, you can also add a pop of colour and texture with throw cushions.

As well as your bed, luxe fabrics and textures can be used in other areas. For example, draping a luxe faux fur blanket or cashmere-touch throw over an armchair will instantly transform the feel of your bedroom. Or if you have wooden floorboards, a rug will immediately boost your room’s cosiness and romance factor.

4.    Embrace mood lighting

One of the easiest ways to make your bedroom feel more romantic is a lighting check. The colour and brightness of your bulbs can make a huge difference, but so many people fail to keep this in mind.

When it comes to the bedroom, bulbs should be warm and inviting. Generally, the best lightbulbs for the bedroom cast around 800 lumens, the equivalent of a 60-watt incandescent bulb. This gives you enough light to read and get ready, without feeling too harsh. Soft white bulbs are perfect for bedrooms, with colour temperatures of between 2700 to 3000 Kelvin considered ideal. 

When you’ve sorted your overhead lighting, take a moment to consider other options. Bedside chest lamps are not only convenient but a great way to create a moody aesthetic. If you have a larger bedroom, consider placing a lamp or two on top of your chest of drawers or tallboy. Standing lamps can also be a lovely way to create mood lighting and make a style statement.

Twinkly fairy lights are the definition of romance, but be careful not to overdo it otherwise you might compromise the elegance of your space. Instead of tacking your string lights to the wall, try draping them around a rustic wooden ladder or arranging them on a floating shelf for a more sophisticated look. They also look great woven around ornaments along the top of wooden bookcases.

5.    Create a sitting space

If you have the space, adding a sitting area to your bedroom is a wonderful way to create a sense of luxury and romance. A classic arrangement is two armchairs angled towards each other around a coffee table or a wooden blanket box. Whatever romance means to you, whether it’s snuggling up with a book or sipping wine with your other half, your bedroom sitting area is the perfect place for romance to unfold.

6.    Add some sparkle with mirrors

As well as creating the illusion of space and bouncing light around the room, mirrors can work wonders when it comes to romantic bedroom design ideas. If you’re going for a romantic French bedroom, propping a tall mirror up on the floor alongside a potted indoor plant is a beautiful option.

Complement the look with a freestanding dressing table mirror, accessorised with chic glass perfume bottles. Or for a more glamorous look, opt for a large wall mounted mirror. 

7.    Evocative artwork

Wondering how to decorate a romantic bedroom? Artwork can completely transform the feel of a space so why not use it to bring romance into your bedroom? Save the family photos for the living room and opt for art that feels evocative, whimsical or maybe even a little bit sexy, depending on the look you’re going for. Whatever your preferred décor style, hanging a statement piece of art above the bed instantly creates a sense of drama and romance.

8.    Get creative with dried blooms

Fresh flowers are gorgeous but let’s face it, they’re expensive and short-lived. Getting creative with dried flowers is one of the best ways to make a bedroom romantic. Keep things simple and minimalistic with a few fronds of fluffy pampas grass and cotton stems or create a bohemian vibe with dried eucalyptus leaves.

For a more decorative look, pick up a dried flower bouquet from your local florist. Or if you’re feeling creative, head to your local market and spend the morning hand-selecting dried flowers for your own bespoke bouquet.

Upgrade your space with romantic bedroom furniture ideas

With so many decorating ideas to experiment with, it’s easy to transform your bedroom into a romantic sanctuary this Valentine’s Day. From grand gestures like a brand new white bedroom set from our Romance range to small touches like mood lighting or a plush throw, you can keep it simple or go as extravagant as you like.
