Furniture expert reveals easy ways to make your bedroom feel more luxurious

As we hit the winter months, we will inevitably be spending more and more time in our homes so it’s important to create a personal space that works for you. Making your home and bedroom feel luxurious doesn’t always need to be expensive – a few simple changes can transform the space where you spend the most time! Fortunately, bedroom expert Laura Burnett from Feather & Black is here to reveal easy ways to give your bedroom a luxurious winter makeover.

Integrate classic and timeless hardware pieces

Classic hardware including chairs, vanity sets, and wardrobes can set the tone for your bedroom. Wooden furniture pieces can significantly increase a room’s luxurious feel.

Investing in high-quality sets can seem daunting, however a splurge on durable, low maintenance and timeless hardware can equal big savings in other areas. You will maintain that luxurious feel for longer with little effort and without needing to replace key pieces regularly. Data suggests consumers are increasingly investing in durable and quality pieces, with wooden vanity sets being searched for over 4,000 times a month on average, according to Google search data.

Invest in a thick duvet

Thicker duvets with a high tog are the perfect winter investment, with many of us refraining from turning on the heating as a result of the cost-of-living crisis. In fact, searches for ‘thick duvet’ have increased by 663% in the UK over the last five years. A heavy and thicker duvet will also give you that hotel-feel at home, replicating the most-loved styles from top boutiques.

Add a large headboard

Analysis of Pinterest data has found that larger headboards, even ‘headboard walls’, are a steadily growing luxurious trend. A headboard is often the centrepiece of your bedroom and a larger headboard, or headboard wall undoubtedly determines the feel of a space. By using panelling, or a neutral toned headboard, you can add a huge amount of luxury and elegance to the room.

Incorporate a decorative throw or blanket

For anyone hesitant to incorporate a bright colour scheme into the bedroom, a decorative throw or blanket can be the ideal way to add a pop of colour to a neutral toned room. A throw or blanket at the end of the bed can tie the room together and make the bed the focal point of the room, adding a luxurious feel.

If adding a throw or blanket isn’t quite to your taste, investing in other statement pieces, such as wall art can be one of the easiest ways to make your bedroom feel luxurious. Focus on a few key pieces rather than filling your walls – the larger the wall art, the more impactful and luxurious the finish.


One of the simplest, yet most effective ways of adding a luxurious look to your bedroom is avoiding clutter. Having numerous, often mismatched items around the room can be distracting. Keeping a clean and clear space can convey luxury with very little effort. Large storage options can help you achieve this look, whether you opt for a statement chest of drawers or an ottoman storage style bed.

Switch to blackout curtains

Using blackout curtains is a quick and simple way to add an element of luxury to your bedroom, as well as being incredibly practical. Not only do they darken your room to give you a better night’s sleep, but they also provide a highly luxurious feel to your bedroom with a hotel-room finish you’ll love coming home to.
