Your bedroom should be a personal haven where you may unwind, rest, and find tranquility. Decorating your bedroom with your favorite colors, treasures, and calming sentiments is an excellent approach to guarantee that you have a pleasant refuge to enjoy every evening. Keep these crucial suggestions in mind when you begin designing your bedroom.
Select a Subtle Color Scheme
Instead of utilizing bright primary colors in your bedroom, opt for relaxing hues and a monochrome palette. Blue, lavender, and green are regarded as tranquil and quiet, although rich jewel-toned tones (think: rich emerald or deep pomegranate) assist establish the sense of coziness and comfort. In the bedroom, you may also use toned-down versions of your favorite hues, such as blush instead of hot pink or copper instead of orange.
Don’t Ignore the Ceiling
The ceiling is sometimes referred to as the fifth wall in a room, but it is especially crucial in a bedroom as you lie in bed and look at it.
A faint pattern or soft hue may go a long way toward making the area feel more elegant and well-thought-out. You may also try painting the ceiling a slightly lighter version of the wall color to visually reduce the ceiling and create a sense of warmth and closeness in the area.
Other options include stenciling or wallpapering the ceiling, adding architectural elements such as beams or moldings, or using a decorative paint treatment. Add a molded medallion and a chandelier of crystal or delicate shades to bring color, pattern, and texture to the “fifth wall” above you for a touch of luxury.
Keep the decoration simple.
Whatever design style you pick, a bedroom should seem pleasant, smart, and attractive.
Allow at least 3 feet between the bed and side walls or large pieces of furniture, and at least 2 feet between the bed and low furniture, such as tables and dressers, for ease of mobility. If you have to go around the bed to get to the closet or the bathroom, consider moving the bed to make things more efficient.
Aside from that, only keep what you need in your bedroom. A bed, one or two bedside tables, a dresser, and a chair are all required.
Everything else is considered clutter and can easily contribute to the impression of chaos or business in your environment. Accessories should be kept to a minimum as well. Choose a lovely piece of art, arrange some family photographs, add flowers and candles, and leave the rest to breathe.
Choose the Proper Size of Furniture
Start with a floor plan and a measured sketch of the area when you’re ready to buy bedroom furniture. Furniture should complement the space in which it is placed, and this is especially true for bedroom furniture. A hefty, bulky bed and dresser are not appropriate for a tiny bedroom. A tall headboard will assist in visually bringing the ceiling down to scale if it is high.
Choose furniture that is appropriate for a larger area if your bedroom is spacious. To assist fill additional square footage, add a chair and ottoman or position a piece of furniture at the end of the bed. Small furniture and accessories will seem out of place in a huge area.
Have a lot of storage space
Store items out of sight to contribute to the tranquillity of a bedroom. This will make the space look quieter and more spacious. Choose a bedside table with drawers or doors to keep books, lotion, and reading glasses close but out of sight. A skirted table or a small dresser with drawers is a fantastic alternative for additional storage.
Extra sheets, blankets, and pillows can be stored in a trunk or a storage bench at the foot of the bed. Use a headboard with built-in shelves or sliding panels for quick access to books and accessories.
Hide tiny accessories or out-of-season clothing in shallow boxes beneath the bed with a gorgeous bed skirt. Finally, a custom-designed organizing system can assist you in making the best use of your available closet space.
Incorporate a Private Nook
Give yourself a special pleasure by finding a quiet location to read. A comfy chair and footstool at the end of your bed or in a corner are all you need to create a private reading or lounging space. Build a window seat under the bedroom window if you have the space to enjoy the view and natural light.
Enjoy Luxurious Linens
Adding gorgeous and opulent materials to your bedroom is a terrific approach to increase the comfort level of your home. As a general guideline, avoid buying sheets that are less than 100 percent cotton or linen with thread counts of 350 or above.
Send your linens to the dry cleaner for professional washing and pressing if you want them to feel like they came from a 5-star hotel. It won’t cost much, but it will create a crisp smoothness worthy of the Ritz. Other sensual-feeling materials can be used throughout the bedroom, such as a soft mohair or cashmere blanket on the arm of a reading chair, textured wall coverings, luxurious curtains, an airy bed canopy, or a plush rug.
Protect the Windows
A tastefully dressed window helps to frame the window and view while also adding color, pattern, texture, and tenderness to a bedroom. If you want soft sheer curtains that filter light, pair them with opaque roller blinds that can be drawn down at night to ensure privacy and prevent morning light. Include opaque shades or curtain lining with all drapes to keep the sun out when you wish to sleep late.
Include a variety of lighting options.
Lighting should be “layered” throughout the space in the bedroom. Ambient lighting lights the entire space, whereas tiny lamps can focus light for reading and other activities, and accent lighting serves to softly brighten the walls.
Use a bedside lamp with a moveable arm to direct the reading light where you need it. Each light should have a dimmer switch. Install a separate on/off switch for each light so you may be selective and just light the area you wish to illuminate.
Avoid Using Technology
To establish a valued space to unwind and rejuvenate, try to keep your mobile phone, computer, television, exercise machine, or other technology out of the bedroom. You’ll like having a room dedicated to reading, sleeping, and romance.
