Small Bedroom Christmas Ideas
This master bedroom is not big so I focused mostly on decorating the bed with gorgeous plaid Christmas bedding.
Christmas Bedroom Decorating Checklist
- Sheets + blankets
- White Duvet Comforter (I use a hypo allergenic duvet insert)
- Plaid Quilt Set (included shams)
- Layer Pillows (2 king size shams | 2 Standard size shames | Decorative accent pillows
- Throw for bottom of bed layered on top of the plaid quilt
- Neutral bedskirt
- Christmas Wall Art
- Christmas Wreaths
The best thing to do when looking at Christmas bedding online, is to buy it when there is a sale or you have a coupon code.
This is the time of year that brands will pull out all the stops to get you thinking about Christmas early.
Lets start with my plaid Christmas bedroom a couple years ago.
What did I do to achieve this plaid Christmas look?
Ideas for Decorating a Bedroom for Christmas
First step, I painted the walls white. You do not need to go crazy like I did and re-paint the walls BUT I did want more of a neutral backdrop moving forward so it made sense.
If you like to swap out your bedding each season, a neutral “off white wall” color makes it easier to decorate.
Second step, I removed all the existing bedding and used a white sheet set that I already had.

I layered a velour red king size blanket on top of the sheets from the previous years Christmas bedding set so at this point, I re-used stuff I already had. If you do not have a festive red blanket, a gray, navy or even light tan color will work.
Only a small portion will be showing so I wouldn’t worry to much about the color.
Third step, layer a festive Christmas duvet, quilt or comforter set as your wow factor for the room.
Every bedroom needs a focal point and that is usually the bed and/or bedding.
I did buy the red and white plaid bedding set from HomeGoods and it was under $100.

These quick 8 Steps will help you accomplish decorating your bedroom for Christmas in no time. If you are overwhelmed with where to start, I suggest removing any clutter or extra furniture from your room that you do not use. Often times, a bedroom can become a “catch all” for unused items and those items are better off in the basement or attic until you have time to donate them.
