Bedroom decor ideas to help you turn it up in the bedroom this Valentine's Day

Bedrooms aren't always romantic. Our computers, phones or TV can physically create clutter and noise that is anything but romantic.

To create a place of passion, try unplugging your devices, and decorate a dreamy escape with these romantic bedrooms from Porch.

1. Set mood lighting

You can easily set a romantic mood with lighting. Place overhead lights and lamps on dimmers so you can control the amount of lighting in the room. The lighting in this bedroom is accentuated by the reflective material of the headboard.

2. Simplify the nightstand

It's inevitable that stuff will pile up on the nightstand. If you regularly have books, glasses, devices and other objects next to your bed, consider buying a nightstand with drawers so you can quickly stash away the distractions. A sparse nightstand will help set a serene mood.

3. A romantic view

A beautiful bedroom view can certainly quicken the pulse and help set a romantic mood. If a gorgeous ocean view like this one just isn't possible, then try hanging paintings or prints of scenic views.

4. Warm up with a fireplace

Nothing says "cozy" like an old-fashioned fireplace. If you've thought about putting in a fireplace in the bedroom, try a gas insert, which will eliminate the mess of firewood and ashes.

5. Soft colors

Soft colors, with greater amounts of white or gray pigment, can evoke a quiet and calm feeling. In the bedroom we often gravitate toward a softer color palette. If you do like bolder colors, then go for colors that can bring relaxation, like greens, blues or purples.

6. Make it rustic

Natural objects and materials are meant to be touched, so if romance is what your bedroom needs, consider adding a few rustic touches. Natural woods and linens are a great place to start and are easy to incorporate into your decor.

7. Layered linens and chandeliers

High-quality linens can make a huge difference in the bedroom. They feel more luxurious, and they last longer. Beds with layers of fluffy down duvets, cozy blankets or soft linens can help create a romantic retreat.

8. Quality shades

Good window treatments can help set the mood as well as block out unwanted light. They can also help stop drafts and add a layer of warmth to the room. Some homeowners install two sets: one set for complete blackout and another for decoration.
