The bedroom is a prime spot in your home, and unlike other rooms in your home, it may need some special attention. It is the place you lay your head to rest, and that is precisely why it should be accommodative and as comfortable as possible. In this article, you will find a few pointers on how to get started on decorating your bedroom.
So without wasting any more time, let’s get started.
Select a subtle color scheme
Bedrooms are relaxed sections, and they require a color pallet that exudes just that. Go for monochromatic shades like greys, tans, and maybe a bit of white here and there as the dominant colors. As the secondary, use light blues, greens, and lavender, which have a calming effect. You can also go for your favorite colors but just toned down in terms of vibrance.
Keep it simple
A place to lie down must not have so much going on. Keep it simple, but that does not mean empty. You could add even an accent chair next to the window and a lamp on your bedside. This is simple yet very elegant. To ensure you keep it simple yet elegant, pick accessories that match up the dominant color to give the illusion that they are one.
Leave enough space for movement
You do not want to wake up in the middle of the night, your eyes half shut, and you hit your leg on a stool. These are some of the things you must avoid when decorating your room. By keeping it simple, you only have what you need and keep the rest outside the bedroom. The space to move from one section to the other must be seamless, something you can do blindfolded.
Choose the right-sized furniture
If you do not have a big bedroom, do not fill up half the space with a king size bed? It does not make sense. What will happen if you choose a mattress that is too big for the bedroom is that you will feel compressed in your room, which beats the whole purpose of being relaxed.
This also applied to all other bedroom furniture and any additionally added extras.
Do not leave the walls blank
The bedroom is a place to rest, and art can help you drift away before you catch some sleep. You can add artwork of plants, water bodies, landscapes, and even abstract art to keep you calm as you sleep. Avoid mirrors, but if you must, make sure what it reflects is a pleasant sight.
Formulate a plan to staying organized
Order is the very essence of having a clear mind. And the first place this should be emulated is the bedroom. Avoid clutter at all costs, organize your laundry in wire baskets, arrange your shoes in the closet, and don’t pile utensils in your bedroom. All of these can be done by getting all the materials ready before moving into that room.
After the kitchen, the bedroom is the next place we spend most of our time in our houses. And the ways above will ensure that you decorate it the best way possible.
