The décor of your bedroom is incredibly important for so many different reasons. First, it allows you to set the mood and make the place more romantic. Second, it allows you to optimize the place where you can rest efficiently so that you get to recharge your batteries more quickly. Third, if you ever decide to sell the place, having a stylish bedroom will allow you to get a much better resell price. Still, these are all worthy goals but you may lack the means to achieve them. Here are several ideas that might come in as quite handy.
1. A cozy-corner
If you want to make your bedroom stylish, the idea of having a bedroom-office is out of the question. Does this mean that the bedroom needs to be single-purpose? Of course not! The key thing is to make these purposes complementary. For instance, you can make a cozy corner with an armchair, reading light, and a soothing surrounding area. You can also make your own reading nook. Sure, the majority of people prefer to read in bed but this is also an interesting notion worth exploring. It is definitely a way to enrich your bedroom space and make it more pragmatic.
2. Accent wall painting
The concept of accent wall provides so many benefits and, in your bedroom, it’s even easier to pull off. Why? Well, because the focal wall is much easier to determine – it’s the one behind your bedpost. Keep in mind that while the rest of the walls remain white, you get to set its perceived tone with the accessories. For instance, if pictures on the other walls or wall accessories are in the same color as the accent wall, the entire room will appear closer to being monochrome. Overall, it’s an interesting concept that’s easy to execute but hard to execute right.
3. Go for the right texture
The fact that your bed takes such a huge portion of the room only goes further to prove just how important the texture is for the décor of your bedroom. For starters, it sets the palette of the room. For instance, your bed sheets will play a major role in setting the overall tone of the place. The texture of the textiles used will also allow you to experience the room through your tactile senses. Keep in mind that sheets aren’t the only focus point. Your rug is just as relevant. Due to the nature of the bedroom, you may spend a fair amount of time there completely barefooted. So, why not get something soft and warm?
4. Proper lighting structure
Another thing you need to focus on is the lighting structure within your bedroom. Here, you want to go with layer lighting because you need to have options available. On the one hand, you need to have a regular light so that you can handle the maintenance of the place like cleaning and making the bed. If you want to read, you need to have a light fixture on the wall or the nightstand next to the bed. You also want to be able to dim the lights to set the romantic ambiance within the room. Overall, you have so many options to choose from. Of course, LED is an obvious choice.
5. Floor-to-ceiling patterns
One of the ways to create an optical illusion and create the idea of an encapsulated relaxation space within your home is to decorate the place in the same pattern from floor-to-ceiling. Now, like monochrome design, this is not for everyone. For those who want to give it a try, it’s usually a good idea to pick the rug and the wallpapers that are similar enough, both in color and pattern. From here, all you have to do is pick the right sheets and upholstery for the rest of the furniture. While it may sound monotonous, the truth is that this design idea is quite challenging.
6. Headboard tapestry
The bedpost is one of the most important parts of the bedroom. Some would even go as far as to say that it’s its focal point. A miniature size of the bedpost can make the area behind the bed (the focal point) look empty. In turn, this makes the entire place empty-looking. To avoid this, you could explore the option of hanging a headboard tapestry.
7. Heavy curtains
Being able to turn the place into a completely dark environment is pivotal for your health. First of all, it will increase the effectiveness of your melatonin levels, which will increase the quality of your sleep. Second, if you have neighbors with a clear line of sight towards your bedroom (from their side/backyard balcony), this will provide you with an extra layer of privacy. So, to make this work, you need to find the curtains in the right color and material. The most elegant solution is to go for a floor-to-ceiling curtain; however, this is completely optional.
8. Hanging bedside lamps
Traditionally, the bedside lamp would be either on the night table or hanged on the wall next to it. However, what if these bedside lamps were to hang from the ceiling? Pendant lights fit this purpose thematically. The impression will be as if you have two miniature chandeliers hanging from each side of your bed. While this is not necessarily what you’ve been looking for, this is a concept that’s worth giving some thought. After all, it’s one of the simplest ways to make the place look more unique.
At the end of the day, decorating your home in a stylish matter is one of the most important things for both resale value and quality of life within your home. Fortunately, with the right plan, the result can be quite impressive. As for your options, it really depends on how well you can make it fit into a realistic mold and whether or not your budget can take it. Regardless of how important it is, there’s only so much of your budget portion that you can allocate to your bedroom decoration.
