It might then come as no surprise that windows ranked as the second most popular feature. Just under half of the bedrooms pictured had plenty of natural light helping to lift the mood while giving your body a boost of vitamin D. To get the most out of your bedroom's natural light, keep windows unblocked by furniture, accessories or overly heavy curtains.

3. Queen-sized beds

They say that size doesn’t matter but when it comes to beds, it certainly does. A significant amount of the most loved Instagram bedrooms are furnished with a double size mattress or larger. A Queen sized mattress is best for most couples as it gives sleepers their own personal space to minimise disruption during the night.

4. Decorative cushions

They’re small but adding a few decorative cushions can have a big impact. A large selection of bedrooms featured pillows of all varieties, from small to large to bright and neutral colourings. Adding cushions can help create a cosy aesthetic feel making the room seem more inviting.

5. Wooden floors
