Top 5 Ways to Make Your Bedroom More Romantic

If you’re planning a low-key, romantic evening in with your significant other this Valentine’s Day, these simple romantic tips for the bedroom will help you set the mood.


Create a soft, romantic glow with candles in your bedroom. Candles are an easy and inexpensive way to create a big impact on how your bedroom looks and feels. Place bigger pillar candlers on dressers and bedside tables to set the mood. They can also help your room smell pretty or sensual. Smaller tea light candles in glass votives look beautiful scattered around your bedroom. Remember to never leave candles unattended or lit while sleeping. For the same effect without the possible fire hazard, try wax LED candles. Made from real wax, these flameless candles have a battery-operated LED light that produces a dim flickering flame effect that will provide relaxing illumination in any area of your home.


When was the last time you went to a romantic restaurant with bright flourescent lighting? Don't ruin a special evening under harsh, bright light. Installing a dimmer switch to control your lighting fixtures is the best way to accomplish dim mood lighting.  Low wattage bulbs create soft lighting and are very flattering.

Consider swapping out your practical ceiling fan for luxe lighting. The smaller, evenly spaced delicate bulbs of a glamorous chandelier disperse light softly through a room and add an extra boost of romance.

If you use energy-saving light bulbs, it will decrease your electricity bill and you'll have to change them less often.



The most essential part of the bedroom is the bed. A good mattress and high quality linens are worth the money. Presidents' Day weekend offers great savings on new mattresses and furniture so it is the perfect time to buy a new bed and maybe some bedside tables too.

Canopy style beds or four-poster beds are the most romantic and sophisticated beds, but if you don't have one or can't buy a new bed, make your exisiting one more luxurious by adding a new duvet cover, pillow covers and soft throws.



Change up your wall paint for a soothing and romantic master bedroom. Stick with neutral colors, as you can always add a splash of color or an animal print with accessories for a racy feel. Some prefer to use calm spa-like colors, like aquas and blue greens, taupes and warm beiges, and greys, especially those with a slight lavender tint. If you are going for passion, use red. According to their website,
, red is a powerful color that increases blood pressure and heart rate. Don't go with a dark color because anything too dark will make the room appear smaller.


Curtains and blinds are a great way to frame a room and create the perfect atmosphere where you need it most. Nothing kills the mood like blinding sun in your eyes. Choose blackout cellular shades or plush, dark curtains which add elegance while blocking out noise and light.

A combination of simple sheer and opaque draperies serve a dual purpose. The sheer fabric stays open during the day to allow light in. At night, the opaque panels help buffer sound and keep light out for a good night's sleep or a long romantic night.
