Cozy bedroom ideas for a more restful 2020.
The bedroom. Probably the most intimate of spaces and the place where you are most at home.
What can you do to give your bedroom a new calm? I’ve rounded up 8 IKEA hacks which can help turn your bedroom into a restful oasis.

#2 Display your fashion
You’ve got great taste and it should be on display. Use the IKEA LERBERG bracket (discontinued, available on Amazon) to hang your favourite outfits or your #OOTD. An alternative bracket is the PERSHULT.
A dressboy can also do the trick — very handy for laying out the next day’s outfit. See the dressboy hack here.
#3 Make use of space under the bed
For the less beautiful things, find a place to store them well.
Now, a bed occupies a lot of floor space. Square footage that can otherwise be used as storage. Redeem that space with a platform bed.
It’s not an easy hack though. For the less handy, there are other ways to make use of the space beneath the bed.
IKEA offers a good range of underbed storage comprising boxes and drawers. I especially like the MALM underbed storage drawers and they are a fabulous choice if you have a MALM bed or another suitable bed frame.
Alternatively, if you have an old dresser that you no longer use, hack it into a set of underbed storage drawers like the one pictured below.
#4 Create a new headboard
While we’re still talking about the bed, let’s focus on the headboard. A new headboard is a surefire way of updating your bedroom.
For a rustic feel, go for natural materials like cane. A cane headboard is easier than you think. See the tutorial here.
If you prefer a more luxurious style in your bedroom, this headboard hack from IKEA may be the one for you. It uses the MALM bed frame as the starting point and velvet (from the SANELA curtains) for a touch of glam. See the tutorial here.
#5 Get the right nightstands
Bedside tables that are too small or too low in proportion to your bed and room will look awkward. They should be as high as your bedding. Add legs to increase height, paint and stain to get the nightstands to fit your decor. See the tutorial for this serene driftwood stained nightstand.
If you’re a minimalist. try this floating bamboo nightstand for size.

#8 Hush it down
Quieten your bedroom for more restful sleep. These ODDLAUG sound absorbing panels dampen annoying sounds from chitter-chatter, the clattering of pots and pans in the kitchen or the sounds on TV.

Furthermore, you can customize your panel by piecing them together however you like. Each piece has a different color on the front and back so you can set your own style. They make a whimsy room divider too.
