When designing rooms in your home, these bedroom decor tips will be very beneficial. The bedroom is the place where you spend a great deal of time every day, albeit much of it is asleep. This of course, means that it needs to be a place of relaxation, and for many people romance.
It’s all to easy to let clutter of everyday life invade your bedroom, but this impairs your ability to relax in one room in the house that should be designed for that purpose. It’s time to decorate it for its purpose. Use these bedroom decor tips to your advantage!
Start out by thinking your personal style. What would you like to have in your bedroom? What would make it relaxing, romantic or both? If you have a special someone, what would appeal to them?
Here are 5 Bedroom Decor Tips:
1. Let’s start with the bed
As the largest piece of furniture in most rooms, as well as the most used, it is something of a focal point. Do you like the bedding? What about the bed frame itself?
Should you replace ALL of your bedroom furniture? Maybe the old furniture just isn’t your style anymore. With so many ways to shop, finding new furniture will be easy.
Back to bed. What would you like it to look like? Huge 4 poster beds are popular right now, but would it look good in your home? If your room is big enough, it might be perfect. In a smaller room it would look to crowded.
Once you have chosen your bed, pick the rest of your furniture to match, but not overcrowd your bedroom.
The dressers need to have adequate space for the clothing. Most bedroom sets have plenty of matching pieces to chose from, so you can find a style you like, yet still have a choice of a couple different sizes for your dresser.
3. Bedroom Accents
Now it’s time to pick your accents. Your bedding is one kind of accent for your room. What colors do you like? Do you love throw pillows or are they a nuisance? Of course soft sheets and good pillows are a must, both for relaxation and romance.
Lighting matters too. You don’t need to light your bedroom up as bright as the rest of the house all the time, in fact, there are many times when dimmer lighting is perfect for the mood in the bedroom. Consider installing a dimmer switch on the main light or have dimmer lights as part of your décor.
Another option for mood lighting is candles. They can add a lovely touch to the décor, and when it’s time for romance they’re just classic. Scented candles can add a lot too.
5. What to leave out
One item I strongly recommend leaving out of the bedroom is the television. Putting a television in your bedroom limits your ability to relax and it takes away from romance. Yes, you can enjoy relaxing in front of the television in the evening, but why not do that in the living room, and leave the bedroom for other forms of relaxation?
