Bedroom ideas for couples: Maximising shared spaces

When it comes to looking at bedroom ideas for couples, there are several factors to take into consideration. Firstly, there are two people making the decor decision. As a result, compromises must be made to ensure a happy and relaxing space for both parties. Secondly, working out who needs what in terms of storage is paramount to cohesive living.

Turns out this is quite the challenge, which is why we spoke to interior guru, Deirdre Mc Gettrick. As Founder of furniture search and discovery engine, and co-host of The DnA of Home Interiors podcast, she understands the importance of refining a couple’s master bedroom decor.

Here’s what she had to say:

Bedroom ideas for couples – top tips

“After a long day, your bedroom is your sanctuary. Furthermore, as a couple, it’s the haven in which you can switch off and relax together. However, the challenge comes when decorating the master bedroom as a couple, which is especially challenging when you may not have the same taste.

“When it comes to decorating a bedroom in harmony, my advice would be to keep it neutral. Not only do colours contribute to the overall design of a room, but they can also influence our thoughts and feelings. As a result, it’s best to avoid loud and vibrant colours such as deep reds, purples and blues, which stimulate energy and do nothing to help reduce your stress levels. Instead, experiment with pastel colours and earthy tones to create a tranquil environment that encourages you to relax. Also, the neutral base also means you can mix things up with different coloured accessories and textiles, depending on the season.”
