We all dream of the perfect bedroom—a sanctuary where we come to rest at the end of a long, busy day. However, if your bedroom is not satisfying your needs, here are a few tips to transform your space into a safe haven. A space that not only looks incredible but makes you feel at peace.
To ensure the best possible bedroom for yourself, start with the basics. First, be mindful of the flow. A common redecorating mistake people tend to make is shoving all their furniture against the walls and going from there. To make your bedroom a sanctuary that works for you, consider the flow you’d like to achieve in your space. Arrange furniture according to the flow you’d like to obtain. When considering flow, adjust your lighting accordingly. Many people settle for their overhead lighting; however, by incorporating different types of light fixtures, you’re not only aiding in the flow but are adding layers to your space. Another common mistake is going color crazy. Colors have therapeutic effects, meaning the color you choose for your room will affect your mood. Opt for restful, soothing colors like blues and greens for a relaxing experience in your bedroom, and browns will have you enveloped in warmth. Also, try keeping everything monochromatic in your space to avoid distractions. A great way to add color to the area is by adorning your floors with a large rug.
We all love accessorizing; it’s the most fun! Too many accessories, however, can overcrowd your room and interfere with the flow you’ve created. Try subtle accessories in places such as your nightstands and walls. For a unique twist, consider adorning your ceiling with tranquil wallpaper, peculiar chandelier, or make your ceiling an accent wall! Are you a TV before bed type of person or a no screen time before bed type? Whichever you are, it’s a good idea to have a plan for your TV. If you’re opting for a TV in your bedroom, decide on a layout that works best for you. Also, accessorize around it with simple elements such as a gallery wall or greenery. Adding plants to your room adds texture and grounds your space for increased relaxation.
When decorating your bedroom, some details are often overlooked. We’re here to clue you in! The foot of the bed is a place people tend to forget; we suggest adding a bench equal to or below the height of your bed. Contemplate adding a sitting area in your bedroom to read before bed or for extra seating. Another overlooked detail is storage. A creative way to increase storage is by using small dressers as nightstands or incorporating a headboard with shelves! Lastly, experiment with different-sized mirrors as a last-minute detail. Mirrors add character to your room and can make your bedroom appear more spacious.
If you have large bay windows in your bedroom, add a comfortable built-in bench and make that space your sitting area! For other window options, frame them with beautifully crafted curtains to add texture and color to your room. Opt for thicker fabrics to block the sun on days where you want to indulge in sleeping in! Remember to hang the curtains closer to your ceiling to create height and get curtains wider than your windows to elongate them.
