Your bedroom is your hideaway from the busy and noisy world; it, therefore, should be a sanctuary that exhibits your collections, colors, and even feelings.
If you are looking to turn your bedroom into a romantic retreat, then you will love our list of sophisticated small decorating techniques, bedroom ideas as well as smart storage.
Go With Soothing Shades
Rather than bold primary colors, choose subtle tones and a refreshing flavor of monochromatic hues. While at this, you should bear in mind the color theory: soft shades of lavender, green or blue are known to be calm and serene, whereas rich jewel-tones help set the mood of comfort and coziness. The latter might include topaz, deep pomegranate, or toasty browns. The golden rule is to go for a toned-down variation of your color of choice – which might translate to pumpkin in the place of tangerine or mauve in the place of the eggplant.
Add-In Luxury Beddings
Nothing adds more comfort and class like beautiful linens; that is why you need them to outfit your bedroom. Do your research regarding thread counts and quality linens to ensure you get value for money. Get a set of duvet covers, sheets, and pillowcases for a perfect look. Bring out the best in your room by integrating a range of textures across the room – like a cashmere throw or soft mohair for the arms of your reading chair, textured or silk wall coverings, silk bed canopy, silk draperies or even plush coverings for the floor. But do not forget to have the right mattress for better sleep. Click here for more insights into mattresses.
Find Fitting Furniture
You do not want a piece of furniture that is too big as it will fill up to the entire space and make the bedroom look congested, but at the same time, you do not want a piece that is too small as it will seem lost in the room. A great idea would be to measure your space before you set out to buy furniture. Avoid large, massive bed and dresser if you have a small room. For larger areas, you can incorporate a sitting piece at the end of the bed, or even an ottoman.
Have Plenty Of Storage
Storage is an integral part of every bedroom – without one, the organization would be difficult. For a serene, calm, and roomy bedroom, try incorporating a large bedside table with drawers where you can store your reading glasses, lotion, and books – out of sight, but within reach. Other storage options may include storage bench to keep extra blankets, sheets, and pillows; headboard with built-in sliding panels or shelves for storing accessories and books; a tailor-made organization system for optimal utilization of closet space.
Several Lighting Options
It is always an excellent choice to include a range of lighting options across your bedroom – you can have the ambient lighting for the entire room, accent lamps for illuminating the walls, and small lamps for reading, writing, and other activities.
