There is no doubt about it, bedrooms are always last on the list of rooms to get attention. Perhaps it’s just because you don’t know how to get that great room you see on Pinterest. Don’t let these images overwhelm you. Give yourself a treat, and make your bedroom into everything you want it to be. These bedroom design ideas are going to do that for you.
Discover Its Purpose
Do you want a place to retreat and relax? Or perhaps you want a romantic spot for you and your loved one. You need to decide what it is you want to achieve from your bedroom space. This is the first step in getting the room you really want.
It has been proven time and time again that color can influence the way we feel. There is no room in your home that can benefit from this practice more. Red evokes passion, while the color white feels pure and stable. Maybe you want something serene? Then I recommend trying a shade of blue or some white. Or maybe you want it to feel sophisticated? Then introduce a lot of purple hues. Read how Interior Design Colors Can Affect Your Mood, and decide which colors you need to bring into your bedroom.
Size, style, purpose, and especially comfort, are important here. You want to bring in elements that are soft and inviting. However you need to make sure that you have provided all of the necessary items for storage and proper functionality. Being sure to include things like benches, arm chairs, and general elements that make it feel more relaxed, is huge. I understand that it is usually a lack of space that keeps us from doing this. If you can, do try.
Lighting is Huge
There is no better way to set the tone of your room than the lighting. Don’t allow your overhead lighting to restrict you. Introduce soft lighting by adding a beautiful element to hang above your bed. Simply adding table lamps to your dressers or nightstands can drastically change everything. If you need to know what type of lighting works best, read up on how to handle the lighting in your room.
We often go safe with our bedrooms and avoid patterns. Stop that! Get a bold pattern for your bedding. Let your sheets be plain and unimpressive, but not your quilts, blankets, or duvet’s. In 5 Tips For Purchasing New Bedding, you can discover ways to do this on the cheap. Don’t even stop there. Bring in some patterns in your drapes or your rugs. Have fun with it!
Again, it is so common to not accessorize in here. Find art that you love looking at. Add vases, and be sure to fill them up with new flowers as often as you can. Let some of your favorite little accents adorn your dresser. Best accessory in the bedroom? The pillow! I know, this isn’t shocking. Still, I bet you could benefit from adding a few pillows to your bed. Nothing crazy, you don’t want to have to take 30 pillows off and on each day and night. Just add a few that make you smile. It’s nice to walk into your bedroom and see a place that you love. You will be entering into this room at least once each night to end the day, so why not make it an enjoyable experience.
