Creating Your Dream Bedroom: How To Decorate Wall Above Bed

Is your bedroom your sanctuary, your retreat, your haven? It's the place where we rejuvenate, dream, and express our most personal selves. At the heart of this sanctuary is our bed, and the wall above it is the focal point of the room. This space, known as the wall bed, is not merely an empty canvas but an opportunity to create a personal masterpiece.

The journey to creating your dream bedroom begins here, so let's delve into exploring different ways to decorate the wall above your bed with wall art, wall décor, and personalized signs.

The Magic of Wall Art

The transformative power of art is undeniable. An exquisitely selected piece of wall art doesn't just adorn your room but also infuses it with your personality. The art piece above your bed speaks volumes about who you are. Hence, it's crucial to carefully pick a piece that aligns with your aesthetic sense and style.

When selecting wall art, consider scale, style, and color. A large piece of art creates a statement and draws attention. Conversely, a small piece may look lost and out of proportion on a large wall. In terms of style, the art piece should enhance and resonate with your room's overall design. If your bedroom has a minimalist aesthetic, an abstract art piece could add a touch of intrigue. Similarly, for a vintage-themed room, a classic landscape painting might fit right in.

Color plays a critical role in uniting the room. Your wall art should either complement or contrast with the room's color scheme. A monochromatic piece of art can provide a soothing, understated elegance, while a vibrant, multicolored piece can add a pop of energy and excitement to your bedroom.

The Personality of Personalized Signs

Incorporating personalized signs into your wall bed décor allows you to add a unique, personal touch. Whether it’s a favorite quote, your initials, or even a memorable date, personalized signs infuse your space with a sense of identity and individuality.

The style, size, and font of your personalized sign should be in harmony with the overall look and feel of your room. An oversized sign could serve as the primary focal point, while smaller signs might play a supporting role, perhaps as part of a gallery wall.

When it comes to positioning, signs don't necessarily need to be in the center of your wall bed. Experiment with different placements – to one side, above a corner of your bed, or even incorporated into a larger display with other wall décor elements.

Safely securing your canvas wall art is crucial not only for the longevity of the piece but also to ensure it adds the desired aesthetic appeal to your space. Here is a simple step-by-step guide to help you secure your canvas wall art with ease and precision.

  1. Determine the Placement: Before hanging, hold your canvas against the wall and mark where you want the top of the canvas to be. Use a level to ensure it's straight.

  2. Measure and Mark: The next step is to measure the distance from the top of your canvas to the hanging mechanism on the back (usually a wire or sawtooth hanger). Then, measure that same distance below the mark you made on the wall and make a new mark. This is where you will place your nail or hook.

  3. Install the Nail or Hook: Use a hammer to drive a nail into your mark until it is secure. If you're using a picture hanging hook, follow the instructions on the package.

  4. Hang Your Art: Carefully place your canvas wall art on the nail or hook, ensuring it's level.

  5. Double-check: Step back and ensure your artwork is straight. You might need to adjust it slightly for the perfect fit.

With these steps, your canvas wall art will be secured safely and correctly, enhancing the overall appearance of your room.


In conclusion, decorating the wall above your bed is a process that allows you to articulate your personal style and create a unique environment for relaxation and tranquility. Whether you opt for wall art, wall décor, or personalized signs, remember that the most important thing is to create a space that feels authentically you. Experiment, have fun, and remember: this is your sanctuary, your retreat, your haven.
