Decorating a bedroom can be challenging if you’ve never done it before. You have to make sure that the furniture has the right proportion, that the environment feels cozy and functional, and pay attention to the ease of movement.
If you’re looking to do a room makeover but don’t know where to start, you’re in the right place. Continue to read to find how to transform your space.
1. Avoid Bold Colors in Your Wall
Are you wondering how to decorate a bedroom? Opt for neutral colors when painting your wall to give your room a cozy, soothing vibe. Do you prefer something a bit more colorful? A light color palette like lilac or light blue works wonders too.
This doesn’t mean that your room has to look plain. If you like bold colors, pick objects that can add a pop of color, like throw pillows, duvet covers, bedspreads, or a drawer. Are you feeling stuck? You can check out Pinterest for some bedroom ideas.
2. Make Sure You Can Move
There’s nothing more stressful than a room you can barely walk in. If you want a space that feels restful, you must pay attention to the ease of movement.
To do so, try to avoid having unnecessary furniture in your bedroom. Plus, if your furniture is too large for your room, it shouldn’t be there in the first place.
Considering that adequate storage can be helpful to minimize clutter, it might be worth implementing drawers underneath your bed to keep it all organized. Do you want to keep your room extra tidy without sacrificing storage? Pick a low platform bed with storage space underneath.
3. Consider the Visual Weight of Furniture
When picking pieces of furniture for your bedroom, take into account the visual weights of each one of them.
If you have a small room, it’s best to stick to a light-looking bed and a minimalistic bedside table or nightstand. If you’re lucky to have a high ceiling, spacious bedroom, consider adding a tall headboard or a large piece of painting. Surely, it will fill out the space.
Here’s a tip for changing the visual balance of your bedroom: add a wall mirror. Light mirrors make any room look more spacious.
4. Think of Your Bedroom Lighting
When designing a bedroom, it’s crucial to consider that most of the time you’ll spend there, it’s going to be when it’s dark (unless you work from home). Therefore, you need to plan your lighting.
Lighting can be more than just a practical thing to be sorted: it can add to the room’s scheme and be part of your decor.
When looking through different types of lighting, consider how you use the spaces in your bedroom. If you enjoy reading in bed, you’ll probably want a bedside light.
Are you interested in fancy lighting? Why not add a chandelier? Pick one that complements your room’s color scheme.
Design-wise, think about whether you want to make your lighting the main feature in your bedroom or if you prefer something more discreet (in that case, it might be worth considering subtle wall lights).
5. Add Softness With A Rug
Check any home decor magazine: you’ll notice that multiple bedroom decorations display a rug. So why not include one in your bedroom design? They bring warmth, color, pattern, texture and help delineate one space from the other.
Don’t be afraid to go for a large rug: it will add texture and warmth to your wooden floor and maximize comfort underfoot.
