You may have spent years perfecting your bedroom design, and finally, have it up to code as your personal space. Your bedroom may look like it’s been designed from the ground up, from the massive windows to the cozy armchair in the corner.
However, there are still plenty of ways to go before you’re happy with just how your bedroom can look. Thankfully, there are a variety of ways to achieve the same look and feel in your own home.
From traditional to expressive, there are ways to create a bedroom design that is both comfortable and stylish. Here are some tips for getting your bedroom looking great from top to bottom.
Plan Your Space
This may seem like an obvious thing to do, but you’re already planning your space to a great extent. You’ve probably already put away all the clothes you’ll wear on a daily basis, packed your bags for the trip to the Southwest, and started to think about your future. So if you want a bedroom that feels more like home, then plan out your space with the same care you would a home.
Your bedroom should feel like it’s been designed from the ground up, from the massive windows to the cozy armchair in the corner. This means you need to think about your space from the start. The way you design it should reflect this.
Not only will it make your bedroom cozier, but it will also let the sunlight in from the outside dance with the shadows and create an extra atmosphere of peace and relaxation in the room.
Decide Your Night's Space
This might seem like a no-brainer, but many people are hesitant to do so. After all, they’d hate having to clean up their messy bedroom after every day. Not to mention, it’s a lot to take in and process in your mind.
However, this is something that you definitely don’t want to do on a daily basis. There are ways to design your bedroom that are both comfortable and stylish.
In fact, if you want a bedroom that feels like you’re in your own space, you should experiment with both your body and bedding.
Try adding a pillow as a substitute for a traditional blanket, or a duvet cover as an alternative to a traditional blanket. This will add a lot of personality to the room, while still maintaining your privacy.
You can even experiment with the color scheme and the lighting in your room. If you prefer a more classic look, try opting for a red blanket and a white pillowcase.
Decide How You’ll Feel in Your Bedroom
Now that you’ve saved a few cents by planning your bedroom out, it’s time to make some serious progress. You’re probably already familiar with the fact that your bedroom should feel cozy, but it’s also important to make some noise so that your walls and floor can support your artwork and toys.
This can be done by adding a few extra layers of casual weight to your bedding. You can add stuffed animals, random stuffed animals, or a few toys to the bed. If you choose to go this extra mile, you may also want to consider adding a bookshelf or two so that you never miss a thing.
Finally, it’s time to think about how you’ll feel in your bedroom.
This is what you have. It’s not an addiction, it’s a survival strategy. The more stuff you have in your bedroom, the better it will feel. If you don’t have anything in your bedroom, less use it as it will just make the room colder. You also need to think about the overall space of the room.
Bright colors can make your eyes water
If it’s too quiet, it will make your head hurt and make your moods swing more intense. So, how do you design your bedroom to be both comfortable and beautiful?
If you sleep in the same room with your spouse or a significant other, you may want to consider buying them a few pieces to add some character to the room.
If you’re in a relationship, it’s usually a good idea to buy a few pieces for your bedside table so that you never feel like you’re missing out on parts of the family that you love.
Bedroom walls and decor
The walls are the heart of any bedroom. They make or break the feel of the room and decide what gets hangable off the wall and what will be left wrinkled and plain. If you choose to keep your bedroom walls exactly the way they are, you will be faced with a big problem.
You will spend the majority of your time looking at pictures and looking through old papers or books. You will also spend a large portion of your time flipping through channels or scrolling through social media. It’s not good for your mind or your eyes.
Decide which parts of the bedroom you want to keep the most popular and how you want to design them. This way, you won’t end up with the same old, same old in
Well, that was a lot of advice. In fact, it might be more accurate to say that designing your own bedroom is like building a house out of rocks. You may not have planned out every little detail in your bedroom, but you have the freedom to build your dream bedroom out of the materials you have on hand. So, with this in mind, here are a few tips to help you out.
Buy a king-sized bed
This is the ultimate gathering spot. If you are going to your bedroom for the first time, this is the perfect thing to do. It will give the room a warm, comforting feel while still managing to be a little casual and airy.
Wash your face twice a day
This may seem like a no-brainer, but it’s not a good idea. Not only will it make your bedding dirty, but it will also give your skin a good scrubbing. You will look like a concentration camp inmate after your bedside table has been burnished for days on end.
Make an effort to clean your room every few weeks
This is a no-brainer. Both your house and your bedroom are cleaner when they are new and clean. So why the wait?
Change your lighting source every two to three years
The difference between a classic light show and a low-key lights-out can be dramatic. So, don’t skydive or take a picture or two in your bedroom while your light switches are on. Just, please, don’t do that.
Put your phone away when you are finished using it
You don’t need to look at it every five minutes while you’re in bed. Just make an effort to put it away when you are finished using it.
Put your laptop on the minibar
This is a no-brainer. Just put it on the minibar, away from all the distractions and other un-needed stuff in the room.
If you are the only one in the room, try to quiet the other guests
It is just as well to avoid a couple of quiet barroom fights. It is also very important to maintain eye contact when another person is speaking. You will look skydiving and happy.
If your room is not in need of a lot of clean-up, you should be able to make your budget
This is important because it is the little things that make a big difference in your bedroom. So, make an effort to clean your room once a month and you will never be short of those things.
