The majority of us do not often change our bedroom furnishings, and even when we do, the bedroom is frequently pushed to the bottom of our priority list. It makes sense to get it correctly the first time, and here are a few things to consider while decorating your bedroom!
Room in the Bedroom
Take a peek at the available space. Which position is the greatest for the wardrobe? The length of a white and oak chest of drawers should be at least six feet. So, how much room is left for the bed? Plan the placement of the bed, storage units, dressing unit, and, if necessary, a work desk. Is a king or queen-sized bed required, or will a single cot suffice? If you have a large bedroom, you might be able to fit in a modest seating space as well. Bunk beds are a fantastic alternative for children’s bedrooms because they take up less space. The appropriate furniture proportions may make your area seem nice without looking cluttered.
Style of Design
What is your preferred home design style? Classic and traditional, warm and rustic, or clean and minimalistic? This style should be reflected in the furniture and furnishings you choose. If you have any existing items that you want to keep for sentimental reasons, choose pieces that complement them rather than clash with them. As the bedroom décor should be relaxing and not distracting, try to work around a single coherent theme.
Styles of Beds
After you’ve decided on a design style, you may start looking at furniture possibilities. A low-cost or without an overwhelming headboard will look excellent with a minimalistic motif. You may have fallen in love with that magnificent traditional four-poster bed on display in the furniture store, but keep in mind that it will look highly disproportionate if your bedroom is small and has a low ceiling! If you need more storage in your room, consider a bed with drawers that can be pulled out.
Nightstands are the second most significant piece of furniture in your bedroom, as they are an extension of your bed. Do you want a simple nightstand with just your alarm clock and a bedside lamp, or do you want a nightstand with a couple of storage drawers underneath? Plan to have a nightstand on each side of the bed if space allows. Most ready-to-assemble cots come with matching nightstands, and you can see whether they can be customized to your specifications.
Wardrobes for the Bedroom
We’ve already gone through wardrobe ideas in depth, so we’ll just give you some general advice for now! Consider whether you want fitted storage units or whether independent storage will suffice for your purposes when designing your closet. With a mirror above it, a chest of drawers looks great as part of a dresser set. If you don’t have enough space for a fitted wardrobe, a stand-alone armoire is a good alternative.
If you’re buying a fitted wardrobe, think about whether you want sliding shutters (which are much better if you’re short on room) or hinged shutters that open outwards.
Do you want a loft to store your baggage and additional boxes? Whether your bedroom is trendy or vintage, the style of your shutters should fit the underlying motif. Discuss with your designer how much hanging space you’ll need and how many drawers your storage units should have. If you have a small room, utilize mirrors on the wardrobe shutters to visibly increase the amount of space available.
Color Scheme for the Bedroom
Your bedroom’s ambiance will be created by the colors you choose for your furniture, walls, and furnishings. Cool and calm, blues, whites, and greys can help you get a good night’s sleep. Reds and yellows, on the other hand, are vivid and do not provide a relaxing mood. Blacks and purples are both unsettling and should be avoided in the bedroom. Choose colors that are complementary to one another and create a sense of balance.
Lighting in the Bedroom
It goes without saying that your bedroom lighting should be subdued and low-key. A bedside lamp next to your bed is a necessary if you want to read in bed and prefer to read good old-fashioned books rather than using a Kindle. Dimmer switches can help you create a romantic atmosphere. In the bedroom, stay away from flat illumination and tube lights.
Curtains for the Bedroom
Your windows will need to be protected unless you have enough privacy in your bedrooms. Consider having two layers of drapes at your bedroom windows: light and breezy ones during the day and thicker or black-out shades at night. If you like to wake up to sunlight flooding in through the windows, you can get rid of the darker curtains completely!
