Picking the Right Fabric for Your Bedroom Design

There are thousands of fabrics to choose from when you want to create a new piece for your bedroom. These fabrics can create a brand new atmosphere for your room, bringing new influences to the overall design. Fabric choices express personality in your home through colorful, pattern-filled designs that make an area unique. Fabric is essential in custom furniture pieces such as couches, ottomans, and chairs. But before you decide on a fabric you found at the store, check out Ellecor Interior Design’s three steps to choosing the right fabric for your space.

Color and Pattern

Obviously, you want the color and pattern of the fabric to be right for your bedroom design. The furniture in your bedroom is a central part of your design, so choosing the right color and pattern is important. For example, if you have a modern, natural bedroom design, look for a solid color in a neutral earth-tone. With thousands of patterns and color pairings, the design opportunities are endless!

If you want to include a fun pattern in your fabric, look around the room, and find key colors that grab your attention. Write these colors down and search for a pattern that contains all of them to bring the overall bedroom design together. 


Texture shouldn’t be overlooked when deciding on a fabric to reupholster your custom furniture. Before we discuss why you need to consider texture, here are a few different fabric textures to choose from: 

  • Cotton
  • Leather
  • Jute
  • Linen
  • Wool
  • Velvet
  • Polyester
  • Microfiber
  • Faux Leather

These textures can create a completely different feel for the bedroom design, defining the overall comfort and aesthetic of the room. Fabrics like cotton and linen are the most common textures for furniture and give the room a plush and homey feeling. However, leather is high-quality, easy to maintain, and durable, making it very attractive. If you need help deciding on which texture to choose, contact an interior designer for a professional opinion.

Match the Aesthetic

The aesthetic is the most important aspect to consider when adding anything new to a room. First, assess your design elements and look at the type of interior design style you currently have. Each design style brings a unique aesthetic to the space, so finding a fabric that brings the room together is essential.

Must-Haves for Your Bedroom Design

Your bedroom is one of the most important spaces in your home, so it should also be one of the most comfortable. All too often, bedrooms can become a clutter of messy clothes and overstuffed dressers that make the space feel cramped. When designing your bedroom, there are certain things you need to include to create a calming and restful space. Bedroom designs need to express your style and your personal sense of comfort. Read on in Ellecor Interior Design’s blog to discover tips to make your bedroom your own.

Cozy Bedding

Obviously, your bed is the most important design element in your bedroom. It needs to be the locus of comfort in your bedroom, with the right patterns, fabrics, pillows, and more. Properly preparing your bed sheets and comforter makes your bedroom feel structured and comfortable, preventing the cluttered and messy feeling of a disorganized bed. Look for bedding accessories like a fluffy duvet and patterned pillows to add comfort and cohesion with your other design features. 

Warm Rug

Waking up in the morning and starting your day by walking on a soft, plush rug can make all the difference. Your bedroom should be cozy and warm, and with the right rug, you can take comfort to a new level. There are a wide variety of materials, patterns, and colors you can choose from; however, the rug needs to match your desired aesthetic. You will immediately notice a difference when you walk into the bedroom with a perfect rug in your design!

Discrete Storage

Convenient storage is needed to prevent that cluttered feeling. Features like built-in furniture pieces, an open bookshelf, or a large dresser can be practical yet stylish focal points of your bedroom design. Modern features like floating shelves and a bedroom bench help break up space in a large room while also giving you more control over functionality. If you find yourself running out of storage, we’ll help you choose a new desk or dresser for your bedroom design!

Comforting Decor

You will spend about half of your time at home in your bedroom, so the decor needs to create a soothing and homey feeling. Items like wall artwork, lamps, mirrors, and bedside accessories are all must-haves in your bedroom design. These help to make the space your own! After your bedroom is designed how you like, look for home decor pieces that match the rest of your bedroom features!

Interior Design Tips for a Cozier Bedroom

Your bedroom is meant to be a place of rest and respite, so you want it to be as comfortable and as cozy as possible. There are plenty of interior design techniques you can use to turn your bedroom into your own personal retreat. Today in the Ellecor Interior Design blog, we’ll give you some tips for a cozier bedroom.

Use the Right Colors

When it comes to making your bedroom cozier and more peaceful, your color palette will play an important role. You don’t want any loud, statement-making tones. Save that for areas of your house where you plan on hosting a lot of guests.

In your bedroom, you should aim for soft, earthy tones or even pastel tones if you’re looking for something a little brighter. Colors like blues and greens instill a sense of calm. Dark greens and browns also bring out that soothing, earthy feel we mentioned. Pastel colors can give your bedroom a soft, airy feel if you’re looking for something more like that.

Use the Right Lighting

Creating a cozy atmosphere requires the right lighting. If you have overhead lighting, consider changing them to lights with dimming functions. Lights should be soft and low. You can even do away with overhead lights entirely by strategically placing lamps, lanterns, and even candles all around your room.

Add a Rug

If your bedroom isn’t carpeted already, a rug can add a real sense of warmth. Get a soft rug that you’ll love to step on when you get out of bed in the morning. Even carpeted rooms can benefit from a good rug. It ties the room together and can add some color or complement existing colors in the room.


One of the most important aspects of making a bedroom feel cozy is making sure it feels like your bedroom. You want to add decor that gives your bedroom a personal touch and makes you feel at home. Just make sure to not go overboard with wall art or other types of decor. Making your walls and shelves too busy can take away from the comfortable atmosphere you’re trying to create.
