Today I am sharing a bedroom decorated for Christmas with 8 Tips featuring Christmas bedroom decor. Can you believe Christmas is right around the corner? I don’t know about you but a Christmas bedroom is amazing and it’s so fun to hop in bed at night with twinkling lights from a Christmas tree, cozy bed lines and a plush plaid comforter. So many of you commented on my plaid Christmas bedroom makeover so I decided to share 8 easy tips so you can get the look too.

Decorating a bedroom for Christmas is not that hard and most likely, you can use a lot of the bedding you already have. If you can invest a small amount of money towards a plaid duvet or festive comforter set, that will really give the room a festive boost.

You can shop our plaid Christmas bedding here or at the bottom of the post.

How To Decorate A Bedroom For Christmas

There is nothing better than a bedroom decorated for Christmas and climbing into cozy Christmas sheets and a plush festive comforter. The master bedroom is small so I focused on decorating the bed with gorgeous plaid Christmas bedding and above the headboard with Christmas decor.

Christmas Bedroom Decorating Ideas

  1. Christmas Sheets + blankets
  2. White Duvet Comforter (I use a hypoallergenic duvet insert)
  3. Plaid Quilt Set (included shams)
  4. Layer Pillows (2 king size shams | 2 Standard size shams | Decorative accent pillows
  5. Throw for bottom of bed layered on top of the plaid quilt
  6. Neutral bedskirt
  7. Christmas Wall Art
  8. 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. Some of my favorite places to shop online are Amazon Home, TJMaxx and Wayfair.

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?

Christmas Bedroom Decor

First step,  before I started decorating this bedroom for Christmas, 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.

DIY Christmas Bedroom Decor Tip

If you don’t have a budget to purchase new items, DIY Christmas bedroom decor such as greens, holly and pine cones from  your yard are perfect “free” decorations that you can use to make DIY Christmas garland. Simply use crafting wire to assemble the garland!

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.

Shopping for Christmas plaid bedding, wreaths and wall art

Every bedroom needs a focal point and that is usually the bed and/or bedding.

Hanging a Christmas sign and wreaths above a headboard will add the Christmas feel to your room and also create a focal point.

Farmhouse Christmas Bedroom Decor

Typical of the farmhouse style, red and white Christmas bedding and quilts pair perfectly with board and batten walls or planks. Simple bedroom lighting and patterned reindeer sheets will coordinate perfectly with a plaid or solid Christmassy bedding.

These quick 8 tips 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.
