10 Tips to the perfect Valentine's Day Bedroom

Valentine's Day is just around the corner, and the perfect excuse to redecorate your bedroom. As experts in creating beautiful  spaces, Econoloft's designers want to share their tips for creating the perfect Valentine's Day ambience in your bedroom.

Whether you're planning a night in filled with cuddles and laughter, a surprise breakfast in bed, or a passionate evening, setting the mood is key for a truly memorable Valentine's Day. And what better place to ignite the spark than your very own bedroom?

Forget the cliché red and pink overload; let's ditch the cheesy decorations and focus on creating an ambiance that's personal, romantic, and effortlessly chic. From subtle touches to complete makeovers, these 10 creative ideas will help you transform your bedroom into a haven for love and intimacy.

1. Let There Be Light (and Scents):

Ditch the harsh overhead lights and opt for a softer, more inviting atmosphere. String fairy lights around your headboard, place battery-operated candles on side tables, or use dimmer switches to create a warm glow. Scented candles add another layer of ambiance. Choose calming scents like lavender, vanilla, or sandalwood to set a relaxing mood. Remember, safety first! Keep candles away from flammable materials and never leave them unattended.

2. Petal Power

Roses are classic, but why limit yourself? Scatter a mix of rose petals, dried petals, or even colourful paper hearts on the bed to create a whimsical touch. For a more sustainable option, use silk or fabric petals that you can reuse year after year.

3. Dress Up Your Bed

Swap your everyday bedding for something more luxurious. Opt for silky sheets in soothing colours like cream, white, or pale pink. Layer in textured throws and pillows for added comfort and visual interest. You can even personalise it with embroidered pillowcases or throw blankets with special messages.

4. Balloons for a Playful Touch

Balloons aren't just for kids! Fill the room with helium-filled heart-shaped balloons tied to furniture or floating near the ceiling. For a more sophisticated look, choose metallic or pastel colours and avoid going overboard with the quantity.

5. Create a Photo Gallery of Love

String up fairy lights and attach photos of you and your loved one together, creating a personalised and sentimental backdrop. Use clothespins, ribbon, or decorative clips to display the photos and add a touch of warmth to the room.

6. The Power of Music

Create a romantic playlist filled with your favourite love songs or melodies that hold special meaning for you two. Set up a portable speaker or connect to a wireless system to fill the room with soft music that sets the mood for the evening.

7. A Bath for Two

Turn your en-suite bathroom into a spa-like retreat. Draw a warm bath with essential oils and rose petals, light candles, and set out fluffy towels and robes. This pre-Valentine's luxury will set the stage for a relaxing and romantic evening.

8. Sweet Treats and Drinks

No Valentine's Day is complete without a little indulgence. Arrange a selection of chocolates, strawberries, or your loved one's favourite treats on a tray. Add a chilled bottle of champagne or sparkling water for a celebratory touch.

9. Breakfast in Bed with a View

Surprise your partner with breakfast in bed on Valentine's morning. Present a tray with freshly brewed coffee or tea, pancakes shaped like hearts, and other delicious treats. Add a single rose or a small potted plant for a personal touch.

10. DIY Decorations Add a Personal Touch

Don't underestimate the power of DIY decorations! Get creative and make your own love-themed decorations. Try stringing paper hearts together, making a garland with love quotes, or even creating a personalised message on a chalkboard.


  • Personalise it! Choose decorations and themes that reflect your unique relationship and shared interests.

  • Less is more. Avoid cluttering the space; focus on creating a few impactful touches that enhance the ambiance.

  • Comfort is key. Ensure your bedroom remains a relaxing and inviting space, not an overly decorated museum.

  • Set the mood with scent. Scented candles, essential oils, or diffusers can create a truly romantic atmosphere.

  • Don't forget the music. Soft, romantic music can set the mood and enhance the emotional connection.

With a little creativity and these inspiring ideas, you can transform your bedroom into a beautiful and romantic haven for Valentine's Day. Remember, the most important ingredient is love! So relax, enjoy the moments together, and create lasting memories that will warm your hearts long after the day is over.

Bonus Tip: Don't forget the extra touches! Write a loving note for your partner, prepare a relaxing massage, or leave a trail of rose petals leading to the bedroom. These small gestures go a long way in showing your love and appreciation.

Of course, there is no better way to build the perfect atmosphere than the space and privacy of a loft bedroom. A master bedroom with en suite bathroom is still our most popular conversion, so why not consider a loft conversion for future Valentine's Day bliss?
