Beautiful bedroom ideas for women of all ages

Author imageThe Mattress Warehouse

As you know, August is Women’s Month in South Africa. And so The Mattress Warehouse decided to celebrate our brave mothers, sisters and daughters by sharing some of our best bedroom ideas for women of all ages with you.

How can I design my bedroom?

Before we dive straight into how to decorate women’s bedrooms for different age groups, we first want to set out the basic rules for bedroom design. When it comes to decorating, there are a couple of factors that can make or break a ladies’ bedroom:

  • Colour
  • Furniture
  • Lighting
  • Space/layout

Which colour is best for my bedroom?

Our bedrooms are where we find peace and rest. Therefore it is always better to have soft, soothing colours that we can easily fall asleep to. On the other hand, you also want a colour scheme that energises you in the mornings.

But isn’t that contradictory? How can a colour be both soothing and energising at the same time?

Well, let’s take the bedroom below as an example: The soft whites and pinks of the walls and bedding soothe the senses, while at the same time the mustard yellow headset and the directional flight of the birds give a sense of urgency.


If you want to know more about bedroom colours, go and read about it in our post on bedroom decor ideas for 2020.

Stylish bedroom furniture

The main feature in any bedroom is… You guessed it. The bed!

So it’s crucial to make sure that your bed fits in the room. We are serious ladies, sometimes your bed is just too big for space you cram it into. A good rule of thumb is to make sure that there is at least 1 meter between your bed and the wall, closet and so on.

However, your bed can also be too small… If that is the case, some tasteful extras are in order. Like a stylish bedside pedestal to go with the colour scheme. Or maybe a headboard to anchor the bed. And if there is space, why not both? Furthermore, adding a plant to your bedroom can add a wonderful effect!

Look at how tastefully this room is laid out, with its interesting hat collection, doubling as a headboard, and the green leather chair that goes with the plants. And don’t forget the light colours and large windows.


How to light up women’s bedrooms

This might sound a bit strange, but a beautiful ladies’ bedroom should have different layers of light. Have a soft, adjustable lamp on the bedside pedestal to complement the adjustable overhead light. Moreover, having soft inner curtains over your windows can add another layer of protection against harsh light in your beautiful bedroom.

We can all agree that lighting has a profound influence on the atmosphere in a room. So make sure the light in your bedroom is soothing and can be adjusted for all occasions.

How to optimize the space in your bedroom

Spacing ties in with how and where you put your bedroom furniture. The golden rule is to keep a clear path between where you get out of bed and the bathroom.

If you don’t have enough space in the bedroom, try putting some neat boxes under the bed. Alternatively, you can put some staggered shelving above the head of your bed to create a stylish storage space. How is that for two birds with one stone?

Beautiful bedroom ideas for ladies

Now that you have a general idea of how to go about decorating your bedroom, ladies, let’s take a look at various bedroom ideas for women!

How can I decorate my teenage daughter’s bedroom?

Not always an easy task. The teen years can be quite disruptive, as bodies and ideas start changing. One teen might want to keep her room all pink and girly, while another one might want to go all-out dark and dreary.

Let’s face it. There is no single box that we can put our teenage ladies into.

So, instead of putting them in a box, we came up with a whole list of ideas that might assist in creating tasteful bedrooms for teens. Here are some visuals to help get your creative juices running:

Give them a feature wall


It can be a multi-colour wall like the one above, or your teen girl can add shelves, paintings, photographs or whatever tickles her fancy to the wall.

Let them to choose a new duvet cover and a set of sheets


Sure, it might sound a bit cheap but didn’t someone once say a change is as good as a holiday? (And all of us can do with a holiday after how 2020 turned out…)

Install an artsy clothes rack and/or mirror


Sometimes simple solutions, like adding one eccentric piece of furniture to a room can make a world of difference.

Let them choose a theme for their bedroom


It doesn’t have to be a pink theme. However, if your little princess wants to go pink, why not indulge her?

Add splashes of bright colour


One dash of daring colour against a soft, white backdrop gives a teenage room so much character! Add some polka-dot bedding and you have turned an everyday room into something exciting for your daughter.

Stylish bedrooms for young working women

You are done with school and starting a new career. You’ve moved up in life! It’s likely you moved out of the house and are no longer subject to your parents’ house rules.

Well, look no further! Because we are going to show you some great bedroom ideas for young career women.

Floor mirrors are all the rage in shoe shops. So why not add one to your beautiful women’s bedroom? You like shoes, right? And you like to fit them on and see how they go with your outfit, don’t you?
