Decorating a Bedroom
When it comes to decorating a bedroom, you’ll want to make sure it’s a space where you can relax and unwind after a long day. You also want to choose items for your bedroom that you like and represent your personal style.
Start with a neutral palette by painting walls a neutral color. This way you can change your look whenever you want without having to start from scratch. For a bedroom, stay away from colors that have too much energy. Look for soft colors that will help you sleep.
Next, find a piece you really love that you can use as inspiration for the rest of the room. It could be artwork, a duvet cover, an accent pillow, or anything else you’d like to see in your bedroom.
Choose bedding that coordinates with your color scheme or is neutral. One great way to begin is with a down comforter and duvet cover. If you decide to change your bedroom you can simply change the cover and still enjoy the warmth of your comforter. If you don’t have pets, simple white bedding can be beautiful. With pets and children, white can be high maintenance.
When it comes to bedroom furniture it’s wonderful to have a bedroom suite that is coordinated. However, if you don’t have one you can still make a lovely bedroom by mixing and matching fun pieces that coordinate. Choose similar design styles and wood stains to get a look that’s coordinated.
After you’ve got walls painted, furniture arranged, and a bed that’s dressed with the basics it’s time to add accents. Throw pillows are an inexpensive way to add color and style to your room. You can also add window dressings that coordinate.
Fill your room with family photos, books, and art that you love. Make sure not to add too much to the walls. If your bedroom becomes cluttered, it will be less relaxing. You should also consider making your bedroom a TV-free zone.
While overhead lighting is functional, it’s not the most relaxing. You’ll want to add lamps to your bed tables in order to have the light that will help you read and wind down. Make sure they’re shaded so that the light doesn’t overpower the room.
Finally, add accents to your room such as scented candles. Choose colors that coordinate and fragrances that you enjoy. Scenting the air is another level of decoration. When you’re decorating a bedroom you want the overall feeling to be coordinated and comforting.
