A bedroom is more than a room with your bed. It is your sanctuary, the only place that remains your private and personal space. Here are some interior design tips that still apply to decorating a bedroom.
1. The focal point of a bedroom
In general, the bed is the focal point in the design of a bedroom. You should choose a bed that is sized to match the size of your bedroom. It’s not just the size of the mattress that matters. The style and height of the headboard are also important points.
2. A window covering that speaks volumes
The decoration of a bedroom should symbolize many things: romanticism, sensuality and / or luxury… Curtains are a really important element to soften the atmosphere of a room and bring the right atmosphere.
3. A unique color palette
You should create a color scheme that has a calming effect. The few suggested color shades are pale yellow, soft pink, lavender and also light tones of blue and green. These color shades will provide your bedroom with the peaceful effect it needs.
4. The location of the mats
The carpet in a bedroom should be placed where you put your feet when you get out of bed. Your feet should feel the softness of the carpet, not the coldness of the bare floor.
5. Make your bedroom a dream place
Find yourself a cute pillow with a smile, design a DIY piece of art, etc. As much as possible, hang beautiful decorative items that you especially like on the wall. Show your personality and remember, the bedroom should be comfortable.
6. Lighting in a room
In a bedroom, the light should be yellow because of its softness. A spacious bedroom could feature a chandelier hanging above the bed, to give a glamorous look. The best idea is to have dimmable bedside lamps.
7. Tidying up
The bedroom should be tidy and free from clutter. Each object must be in its place, in a well-defined place. For example, you can put a storage bench at the foot of the bed, so you can store sheets that you don’t use when making the bed.
8. Match the mood and colors
Colors can do magical things; they can bring energy or relaxation, depending on the nuances or hues in the space considered.
9. As much lighting as possible
In order to have a dramatic effect in the entire bedroom, everything can be illuminated: the headboard, the art paintings or even the interior of the cupboards. For this, several lighting devices are necessary to have the desired spectacular effect.
10. Use small pieces of furniture as a bedside table
A classic bedside table? No thanks ! Prefer small pieces of furniture in raw wood craft style for a charming touch.
11. Set your sights on the Art Deco style
The Art Deco trend has not said its last word! This elegant style gives the room a welcoming and comforting atmosphere. Choose a rounded, golden bedside table and go for velvet bed linen in dark hues.
12. Think of a chair rather than a classic bedside table
Replace your nightstand with a colorful chair in pastel tones (pink, blue, green, yellow…).
13. Imagine a bookcase above the bedroom headboard
Install shelves as a bookcase above the headboard to store your books. You will be able to easily choose the story that will make you join the arms of Morpheus.
14. Make a holiday wind blow in the bedroom
Are you missing the holidays? Install straw hats above your bed on the wall to remind you of good times in the sun with friends, without leaving your room!
15. DIY graphic and practical headboard
Make a headboard with reclaimed wood planks for a graphic and original style.
16. Twister old suitcases as storage
Collect old travel suitcases and place them at the foot of the bed for storage.
17. Invest in a designer bed in the bedroom
The designer bed gives a chic and worked style to the room. Pair it with light and soft shades.
18. Pamper the small decor
Small vases, bowls, pots with succulents… Give importance to the small objects that you will install in your room.
19. Install a metal canopy in the bedroom
For an industrial and modern style, have a black metal canopy installed in the bedroom or repaint the woodwork of the windows and doors in black.
20. Place a bench as a bed end
Gain storage by installing a small bench at the end of the bed. You can store bed linen, throws or pillows.
