Space for your electronics
In a modern bedroom providing enough power, points are essential. If you can hide all of the wires, they look ugly and could be a trip hazard.

Books and a reading chair
Even if you no longer read physical books adding a few to your bedroom has a surprising effect. It really can make it look more lived in, warm, and friendly.
If you do like reading, setting up a reading corner in your bedroom is a great idea. All you need is a comfortable chair, a narrow bookshelf, and a floor lamp. Set the lamp up behind the chair, and the shelves up against one wall. Or, if you prefer, ditch the bookshelf and opt for a small side table with just one or two books on it.
