Traditional Bedroom Ideas

Traditional bedrooms exude elegance, classic design and charm. Although they’re more formal in design, they still feel comfortable and welcoming thanks to rich colors, textures and decorative elements. If you’re on the lookout for some traditional bedroom ideas to incorporate in your home, read our guide below and find inspiration in our extensive photo gallery.

1. Choose a Color Palette

Most colors work in traditional bedrooms, so pick out a palette that will make you feel most relaxed and at home. If you want to create a light and airy space, muted shades of blue, yellow, green or blush pink look gorgeous against crisp white wood. For a stately look, go with deep shades of red, blue or green and wood in rich, natural stains. Incorporate velvet, linen and soft fabrics throughout your bedroom.

2. Pick Out Unique Furniture

Don’t shy away from mixing and matching furniture pieces in various styles or finishes. A collected look will only enhance the traditional charm and elegance of your bedroom. If you’re picking out a bed frame, upholstered, wooden and four poster frames would all work well. If you’ve got the space, consider adding in luxurious touches like a tufted bench at the foot of the bed, or a stately armchair in the corner.

3. Make It Your Own with Decorative Touches

Traditional bedrooms aren’t finished without balanced decor pieces that give the space character and ambiance. You could opt for a French toile wallpaper, an ornate wall mirror or vintage prints of flowers. Crown molding or wainscoting can really give your bedroom a finished look, as can floor-length curtains or a chandelier.
