All our ideas (as always) are super easy to achieve and can obviously be used to decorate any bedroom, not just men's bedrooms.

1. Switch your bedding for a quick refresh

Changing over your bedding really is the easiest way to change the look of a men's bedroom and start a whole new colour scheme. Grey is an obvious choice for men's rooms as it's neutral and chic, but you can add some warmer tones too like browns and burnt oranges. Pick up some new cushions to bring in these more inviting colours and to add more texture and comfort. Check out Ikea for loads of cheap and stylish bedding sets. 

2. Pick out storage that will become a feature

If you don't need a full-on wardrobe in your room, a set up like this can be a great way to store clothes, save space and become a feature too if you match the clothes you hang to the style and colours of the bedroom. Again, this handy rail is from Ikea, and it's only a fiver.

3. Or pick a subtle, practical wardrobe

Ooooh, what a cool space! Love the mix of deep blues and dark woods. If you are in need of some bigger storage furniture pieces, a dark wood would work in so many styles of room. Yes, darker woods are a bold choice as they can be quite imposing, but if you keep the shapes simple and the backdrop a dark colour too, they can be a really stylish focal point. 

4. Create softness is a men's bedroom with natural textures and colours

Men's bedroom ideas don't always have to just be grey or black or some other moody hue, you can go for a light and airy colour scheme that's filled with natural textures. We love this space and this it would work so well as a men's bedroom if you are after a softer but still quite masculine look. That distressed wall too!  So cool and gives it a bit of an industrial feel to contract all the lighter colours – you can pick up something similar from B&Q for only £18. 

5. Don't forget to add some personality

Even if you are after a sleek, minimal space, you don't want your bedroom to feel stark or unlived in. Add in some personality with prints, posters, houseplants and decorations. If you like the lived-in look of the room above just experiment with hanging and dotting knick knacks around your space in groups or on shelves, and if you are more a fan of less fuss and clean lines why not add a gallery wall? We have plenty of gallery wall ideas over in our gallery to help you get inspired and check our Desenio for the best prints.
