1. Create an Ancient Egyptian Look

The first thing to creating an authentic Egyptian-themed bedroom is to focus on the details of ancient Egyptians and their color combinations and style.

Begin by deciding on an overall design like a specific period in Egyptian history that you want to emulate.

This will help you narrow down your design choices and create a more cohesive look for your Egyptian-themed room

Once you have an idea of the time period you want to focus on, you can start to bring in more specific ancient work-inspired Egyptian interiors.


Think about incorporating traditional Egyptian hieroglyphs, patterns, and gold columns into the design.

If you are needing some inspiration check out some interior designer websites or visit Pinterest.



2. Decide on the Best Furniture Styles

When it comes to furniture, consider opting for pieces that have an Egyptian style to them. Look for black furniture with ornate details, such as carved wood or intricate metalwork. 

You can also find pieces that are made from traditional materials like ebony and mahogany and Egyptian statues.

If you want a great focal point, you can find pieces that are made of Egyptian-inspired artifacts, such as ancient pottery or stone or an iron chair.

In addition, you can find the perfect place for traditional pieces like a geometric iron bed or a four-poster bed with ornate carving and detailed metalwork. 


Another great idea is to add a black lamp or two will also look great on a small brilliant gold table or a pair of bedside tables will help bring together your Egyptian space.



3. Choose the Right Colors and Color Scheme

If you want to add a bit of color to the room, consider using deeper accents, amber tones, or deep burgundy bedding. Consider utilizing a blackout curtain to create a darker look and feel.


If you want to add a touch of luxury to the room, look for pieces that feature rich fabrics like Egyptian cotton with a soft texture. 


You can find bedding sets, curtains, and rugs made with Egyptian-style fabrics, such as silk, velvet, or brocade on Amazon



4. Decide on Wallpaper, Paint, and Textiles Fit for a Royal Family

When it comes to decorating the walls of an Egyptian-themed bedroom, you want to keep the color palette of amber tones and deeper accents or a sandy beige for a neutral look. 


Opt for dark walls, a neutral backdrop, deep black, or deep blues of lapis lazuli gemstones, as these colors are reminiscent of ancient Egyptian symbolism

You can also use wallpaper with traditional Egyptian patterns and motifs to add a touch of elegance to the room. In addition, keep the flooring neutral or keep hardwood floors.

This will not overpower the room as the deeper color walls can often overshadow the flooring.


You can also find traditional décor items of Egyptian-style rugs that feature intricate patterns and motifs. 

If you are feeling bold, you can even use paint to create a mural of a traditional Egyptian scene on one of the walls as an excellent alternative to wallpaper.



5. Add Egyptian Décor Inspired Lighting

Lighting is an important element in any bedroom, and it is especially important in an Egyptian-themed bedroom.

You want to create a warm and inviting atmosphere, so consider opting for lighting fixtures that feature traditional Egyptian designs and motifs.

The good news is you can find lamps and sconces with intricate carvings and intricate metalwork easily on Amazon


You can also find chandeliers with crystal pendants and intricate designs that are reminiscent of ancient Egyptian art.


When it comes to the type of lighting, try to opt for fixtures that are warm and inviting. Consider using recessed lighting or wall sconces to create a soft and subtle atmosphere.

You could also select a basic lamp on small tables in the bedroom.



6. Include Ancient Egyptian Decor and Decor Ideas

When it comes to decorating an Egyptian themed bedroom, you want to focus on pieces that are authentic and unique

Consider incorporating small statues of ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses into the design. You can also find sculptures and figurines that feature traditional Egyptian motifs and designs.

If you want to add a bit of color to the room, consider pillows and throws with an Egyptian feel or even one with palm tree elements to make the look of this room flow better without much effort.


You can also find small artifacts like vases and trinkets made from traditional decor items of Egyptian materials, such as ebony and mahogany.



7. Add a Touch of Elegance with Egyptian Wall Art

When it comes to wall art, you want to focus on pieces that are unique and authentic with a vast background of Egyptian symbolism.


Consider incorporating accent workpieces that feature traditional Egyptian motifs, such as the ankh, the eye of Horus, or the sun and moon.

You can also find the right place for paintings and prints that feature scenes from ancient Egyptian mythology or even basic palm trees as the focus. 



8. Include Finishing Touches for the Egyptian Bedroom Decor Ideas


Once you have all of your furniture and Egyptian decor items in place, you can start to add the finishing touches. 

Consider using scented candles or incense to add a bit of fragrance to the room. You can also find pillows, throws, and rugs with traditional Egyptian motifs and designs. 


If you want to add a bit of glamour to the room, consider incorporating pieces of antique jewelry or vintage trinkets into the design.

  27. Alice Mola

    I absolutely love the color schemes listed here, the burgundy and rich gold colors are so regal and give a room a very old and royal feel to them. I really like the idea of the lamps with various carvings, I think it gives a room a very subtle and warm vibe rather than having a large Egyptian painting, which I like!

    1. Hi Alice!

      I’m thrilled you enjoyed the post and love the color schemes as well as the decor. Egyptian bedroom decor is such a unique vibe and puts off a feel all its own. I love the royal feel as well.

      Thank you for reading!

    1. Hi Ntensibe!

      I’m glad you were intrigued by the post. I agree lighting is important in every room of the home – including the bedroom. The Egyptian bedroom decor traditionally circles around a more subdued lighting option.
