Whether it is getting furniture for a new bedroom or doing a bedroom makeover, decorating your bedroom is the same as enhancing the most intimate part of your life and soul. The bedroom is the most intimate room while you spend the most comforting, relaxing, and replenishing hours in there, so decorating it to your style and character is of most importance.
Let’s start with the basic needs for all bedroom purchases.
-The size of your room and most preferably the dimensions and space you have to place your bedroom pieces
-The size of the bed you prefer, from Twin Size Beds to California King Size Beds, this will also determine the size of mattress needed as well for the bed.
(*Please see below for details and data on sizes and dimensions.)
The main piece of the bedroom is, of course, the bed itself. Lighting, Spacing, color, and style are very important in your selection decisions as well. How everything individually complements each other and together will be explained in this article.
You should choose your style based on the things you love that will translate into a décor that is both practical and comfortable for you, as you rest in this intimate sanctuary of yours. Be practical with your décor that offers style and function, such as discreet and smart storage areas that will reduce clutter and improve the overall clarity of your bedroom décor for maximum comfort.
Make yourself feel special with the colors you choose for your bedroom. It should warmly welcome you to rest through the colors that calm and comfort you. Pastel and light colors are generally for more tranquil and serene settings, whereas strong and bright colors are for more brave and bold settings. You may also contrast those colors to your liking, but most importantly colors that accent your lifestyle and most intimate feel for the bedroom to you. It is the overall atmosphere you create for yourself from sleeping in luxury to dwelling in relaxation.
Space is both the most important and physical aspect of the bedroom. You should choose the size of your furniture pieces based on how the space will make you feel. Know where your bed will be placed and if the size you chose will fit. But most important is that overall feeling of the pieces going together. Use empty boxes or bags to outline comparable size pieces before you make your purchase to see how you will feel walking around in your room or just the feeling you get when you enter.
Lighting will greatly enhance both the feeling of space and atmosphere from the colors you chose for your bedroom. Make sure to not have pieces that block the beautiful and abundant natural light that may come through your window, as natural light will show your true style and décor of the bedroom and the furniture that’s in it. Rather, to enhance and complement natural lighting, you should dress your windows with enhancing window treatments and appropriately sheer curtains. Drama, ambience, and mood can be created through the artificial lighting you choose for your bedroom. Decorative lighting and dimmers on lamps and fixtures that suit your style and needs will create a feeling of character and emotion. Candles can always add to the mood depending on the type and size of the candle, as well as the candleholder you use. Now, we must not forget about the practical task lighting that allows you to rest and read a book before you turn in to sleep. Task lighting can be created through a table lamp on your night stand, or an arm floor lamp that can be swiveled for customized position. Your bedroom lighting should be defined by the mood you would like to create and emotion that you want to convey, while during the day everything is naturally enhanced by beautiful natural sunlight.
You don’t need every piece of bedroom furniture out there, just the basics and décor that fits your desires. The bed is the defining piece that will allow you to match the night stand, dresser, chest, and armoire to your bedroom. Or you may use mix and match pieces, such as end tables and other contrasting, but complementing, items with your bedroom décor.
Now the style of the bed is the most complemented with the bedding you choose. You may go with simple bed in a bag sets to dress your bed, or separate pieces from the texture of the comforter to the desired thread count on your sheets. No matter what, the comforter accents the bed and the room, while the intimate feeling of soft or textured bedding should cater to your desires.
