Bedrooms are meant to be a haven from the chaos of life. It would lose its essential purpose if this mini haven was in itself a place of boredom. Here are a few tips to create a good experience within one’s own room.
Justice to its name- ‘the bedroom’!
Using the bedroom as an office does no good if you are seeking rest in it. It will only remind you of more work and thus, undermine the true value of it. It would be best to create in your bedroom, an ambience that you will require for all your future activities in it.
The lighting in a room is of vital importance to people’s moods. Apt lighting will be required based on your needs. For reading and studying, you’d need bright lighting and for relaxing, a soft lighting would do. The spatial arrangements could be made accordingly to meet appropriate needs. Track lighting will be a good option for comfortably controlling its directions. Bedside lamps and recessed ceiling lights can be used for providing a subtle light while sleeping.
A prerequisite to renovating a bedroom is to select a suitable theme and to color coordinate it. In order to enhance its appropriate feel, you’d need to make sure that the accessories in the room do not contradict each other so that the bedroom expresses a harmonious touch to it.
Matching linens and beds
Linens and beds need to be picked primarily based on their comfort levels. The styles are given secondary priority. You could use your own artistic abilities to choose matching linens, pillows and blankets or you could check out websites for guidance on the best that’s available.
Displaying artwork and collections
Exhibiting your favorite art work in your bedroom – be it paintings, kid’s drawings, sculptures or silk rugs, it would be a great idea to use your wall space wisely depending on your preferred look. If you’d like a less crowded look, then you could neatly organize a few favorites. If your choice is abstract, then you could experiment with different pieces of artwork. Avoid framing your favorite pieces if your budget is limited and consider more cost-effective possibilities.
Your array of medals, trophies, photos, statues, books and records, could be placed on shelves attached to the wall such that it stands out for public view. This will also help in organizing your collections.
These are essential to adjust the amount of light entering your room. Firstly you need to decide the extent of coverage required so that you can wisely invest in curtains, shades or blinds, from shopping at stores or online. A plain and economical choice that would go with any style would be white panel curtains. You could choose to beat the bright morning sun rays with thick cotton or velvet curtains of your favorite light colors.
It would be a good idea to add glamour to your bedroom with suitable and sufficient furniture, if you have the extra bucks for it. Or you could also choose to redo your old pieces with paint or polish.
Modifying the color
It is a well known fact that colors influence your emotions. This is evidenced by the way spas choose sober and natural color tones like brown, beige, blue or green, for their walls. If your wall colors are beginning to appear insipid, you could opt for another color and change the feel of the room.
Utilize floor space
You could occupy free floor space with carpets or pick from a range of flooring options of which laminate floorings are the most sought after for bedroom floorings.
Since it is usually not a place with many visitors, a large number of people give least priority to working on decorating their bedrooms. On the other hand, your bedroom is the one place where you spend most of your relaxing time. So it would do you good to invest considerable time and money on creating a rejuvenating and soothing experience in your own bedroom with the aforementioned suggestions.
