A bedroom should be a private retreat, a haven that reflects your particular tastes in colors, moods, and collections. Many people are finding difficulty in decorating their bedrooms. You need not stress yourself doing the task because there are simple ways to do it.
Easy Ways to Decorate Your Bedroom
Here are some of the bedroom décor ideas to keep you relax and calm after a stressful day.
- Select colors that are subtle
Choose calm shades and a relaxing palette of monochrome tones instead of bright primary hues. Color theory says that mild blue, lavender, or green tones are relaxing and soothing. Rich jewel tones help to create a feeling of coziness and comfort. Toasted browns, rich pomegranate, and topaz are examples.
In the bedroom, choose muted versions of your preferred hues, especially when choosing curtains to go. You can try mauve instead of eggplant or pumpkin instead of tangerine.
- Do not ignore the ceiling
The ceiling is a room’s fifth wall. Do you perceive a bland, blank surface when you lie in bed? Use a soft color or a subtle pattern. Paint the ceiling a lighter shade of the same hue as the walls. This will visibly reduce the roof and give the space a more intimate and comfortable feel.
Other options include using a decorative paint treatment, stenciling, or wallpapering the ceiling. You can also add architectural elements such as beams or moldings. Silver-leafed bedroom ceilings, a canopy, or a tented bed with curtains to go that hang from the top may engulf you in sensuality and warmth while adding texture, pattern, and color to the ceiling.
- Keep it simple
Regardless of the décor style you choose, a bedroom should look pleasant, straightforward, intelligent, and exquisite. Consider how you can move the bed if you need to walk around it to get from the closet to the bathroom.
- Have a lot of storage space
Store things out of sight to add to the tranquility of a bedroom. The place will appear more spacious and tranquil.
- Choose a large bedside table with drawers or doors to keep books, lotion, and reading glasses close at hand but hidden from view. Choose a skirted table or a small dresser with drawers for added storage.
- Toss excess sheets, blankets, and pillows into a trunk or a storage bench at the foot of the bed.
- Use a headboard with built-in shelves or sliding panels for easy access to books and accessories.
- A custom-designed organization system can help you get the most out of your wardrobe.
- Put shallow boxes beneath the bed and cover them with a lovely bed skirt or curtains to go.
Choose furniture that you only need in your bedroom
All you’ll need is a bed, one or two bedside tables, a dresser, and a chair. Anything else is a waste of space. Place a chest of drawers in the closet if space allows. Choose a lovely piece of art, place some family photos on top, add flowers and candles, and then let it alone.
- Include a secluded nook
Give yourself a wonderful present by finding a peaceful location to read. With a comfortable chair and footstool at the end of your bed or in a corner, you may create a private reading or lounging area. Build a window seat under the bedroom window if you have space. You can add curtains to go to eliminate the light coming from the window. Take in the scenery and the natural light.
- Allow yourself to be pampered with opulent linens
Beautiful curtains should decorate your bedroom. There are curtains to go that offer comfort to a bedroom like nothing else. Buy only sheets made of cotton or linen.
With a soft mohair or cashmere throw on the arm of a reading chair, silk or textured wall covering, silk curtains or a silk bed canopy, or plush floor coverings, add more sensuous feeling throughout the bedroom.
- Cover the windows
A well-dressed window can frame the window and the view while also adding color, pattern, texture, and tenderness to the room. Combine opaque roller blinds you can pull down to keep privacy at night and prevent morning light if you like soft sheer drapes that filter light.
Include opaque shades or drapery lining in all drapes to keep the sun out when you want to sleep late. You can also put curtains on the go on your windows to create a more sheer look.
- Include a variety of lighting choices
It’s a good idea to “layer” your lighting across a bedroom. Ambient lighting illuminates the entire space, while small lamps focus on reading and other activities, and accent lighting washes the walls in a warm glow.
Decorating your bedroom is not only to make it beautiful. The essence of decorating is to keep it organized and more comfortable. Those ideas listed above can help to do the decorating tasks a lot easier.
