Bedrooms are physical expressions of personality and creativity. You may want a funky bedroom to unleash your nonconformist individuality. If you're searching for ways to express your inner rebel, toy with a few suggestions for funky bedroom ideas.

Lofted Bed

The first step to creating a funky bedroom is to maximise your space. If you have a small room, you might consider moving your bed into a lofted space. A lofted space allows you to use the newly created area for studying or creative projects and frees up the rest of your room for cool decorations, entertaining company, or just plain stretching out.

Experimental Walls

Think of walls as open canvases waiting to express your creativity in your cool new room. The options are, literally, endless. You could stencil your own personal artwork, then paint it in. You could paint funky new patterns, like animal print or polka dots. You could wallpaper one wall, then paint another. You could cover the walls with posters of your favourite rock stars, musicians and movie stars. You could put up exquisite tapestries or ornate wall hangings.

Creative Bedding

Bedding is another way to transform your room into a funky hangout. Sheets, comforters and pillows provide an opportunity to add splashes of vibrant colours and patterns to your space. Some stores or websites sell whole bedding sets in a bag, complete with all the accessories you need in matching patterns. You can also find a signature comforter or sheet and pillowcase set that speaks to your room decor, then buy complementary pieces.

Funky Furniture

Furniture and accessories can be used to make your space seem like a funky, creative space. Depending on your room's theme, you can search for lamps, end tables, desks, and chairs that speak to your personal flair. Items like mirrors, art frames and knick-knacks add a personal touch. You can find furniture in a number of places, from designer stores and garage sales, to thrift stores. Items bought second-hand provide a unique opportunity for self-design: Desks, chairs and tables can be airbrushed, painted and stencilled; you may want to consider using contact paper, as well.

Rugs and Carpet

Rugs and carpet can easily be used to create a funky design in your bedroom. Choose from bright-coloured or patterned shag area rugs, or redo your entire carpet. Regardless, make sure the rugs are fluffy, comfortable and clean.


Proper lighting can put the finishing touches on your funky bedroom motif. You may want to try different coloured bulbs to create various lighting moods, or ornate lighting fixtures with creative, funky designs.
