What comes to mind when you hear the perfect bedroom? Comfort? Serenity? Warmth? Coziness? There is no doubt that our bedrooms are very personal spaces where we can recharge after a long day. Bedrooms are spaces of relaxation, where we get to enjoy our’ me’ time shut away from the chaos of the world. Isn’t this reason enough to spruce up this serene space? Three things are most important when creating the perfect bedroom: room design, decor and preference. That said, here is a guide that will help you create your perfect bedroom.
1. Dress your windows
A beautifully dressed window can transform your bedroom, creating visual balance in the room. Freshen up your bedroom with new curtains, play around with color and patterns to find a scheme that suits your room. Curtains aren’t just window treatments that beautify the room apart from the visual appeal; look at the functionality of the curtains. If you sleep in or have late mornings, curtains that let in sun rays may not work for you. Blackout Curtains are a much more practical and comfortable choice for you.
2. Add some throws
Is ‘nice’ not enough for your bedroom? Well, adding some throw pillows on your bed is one way to make it breathtaking. Throws bring a decorative effect not just to your bed but the entire room. These pillows are flexible so you can change them to shake things up a bit.
3. Choose the right furniture
Bedroom furniture can upscale the look of your room if chosen right. The perfect bed, the complimentary nightstands, or the cadenza all are great additions to your bedroom. However, ensure you pick out the suitable materials and designs for the furniture. For the bed frame, do not be afraid to go with a playful design that keeps things interesting.
4. Get a new rug
You can never have enough softness in your bedroom. Adding an area rug in your bedroom is a great way to add softness to your bedroom. An area rug beside your bed creates a cozy mood, so the first thing your feet feel is a soft surface when you get out of bed. Find a unique shape and texture that will give your space that extra oomph. The thing with rugs is that you have hundreds if not thousands of choices beginning with your preferred shape, size and color and working your way down to design, texture and patterns.
5. Beddings galore
Restyle your entire room with new bedding. To give your space a new look, changing your bedding is how to get there. Quality is everything when picking your beddings, your comfort banks it! Choose something that doesn’t just look good but feels good too. Your beddings can be a long term investment when chosen right. From sheets, pillow cases downright to the duvet, wach should be carefully selected to create the perfect napnest. Do not be afraid to dress up your bed with some layering, because this is a perfect way to bring a visually stunning dimension to your bed.
6. Add a seating space
Some little space in the bedroom is not the worst idea. Think of when you want to get some work done without leaving your room or where your guest can sit when hanging out. Seating space in the bedroom is not unheard of; people add couches, a stylish armchair, or a seating space near the window. Some seating spaces doubles up as storage space which is gold in the bedroom for those extra shoes and blankets you do not know where to keep. While extra seating space is functional, ensure to pick something that complements your design too.
7. Let there be light
We love some natural lighting in the bedroom but that is no excuse to skimp on bedroom lighting. Ceiling lights and reading lights can make your bedroom feel like a five-star hotel, but it all comes down to two things; convenience and style. The bedroom is a room you do not necessarily need a lot of light but still need to invest in proper lighting to avoid bumping into things or creating shadows in the bedroom. For the nightstand, you will need task lighting that allows you to see properly while in bed.
