Your bedroom is your sanctuary. It is a place where you should be able to kick your feet up and relax. It should also be an area that reflects who you are and what you enjoy. So, how do you go about creating the perfect bedroom? Read on for some simple decorating tips!
Create A Theme
If you want a cohesive look, you should stick to an overall theme. You can go for the romantic floral feel or the exciting, sexy, and dramatic flair of bold patterns like leopard print. But, most of all, have fun with your design. Include items that love, like new age artwork, or glass bureaus, or a canopy! Whatever floats your boat and makes you happy should be considered. After all, this is your exclusive oasis.
Incorporate A Comfortable Throw Rug
If you have a hardwood floor, and who doesn’t get these days, you may appreciate its unique beauty, but not its knack for retaining the chill of a mid-winter morning. What is the best solution to warm your feet each day? Get a luxurious, soft, or shaggy throw rug to cover the floor beneath your bed.
Not only does the rug serve a practical use, but it also provides a gentle ambiance to your bedroom that cannot be achieved with a hardwood floor alone. Rugs, especially those with texture and depth, are inviting and comforting, and provide the area with particular warmth.
Accent With Throw Pillows
Speaking of comfort and warmth, nothing says serenity like fluffy pillows. And, by accenting your decor with throw pillows, you can complement or contrast with your color scheme, or add a touch of whimsy with colorful patterns, like stripes, polka dots, or florals. Place them on the bed, adjacent furniture, or even on a window seat for a cozy look.
Don’t Forget Nightstands.
Always include a set of nightstands in your bedroom. Typically, there should be one stand on each side of the bed, but one is fine if you are sleeping alone. Quality nightstands can be made from different materials, like those made from cherry or oak, and found at retailers like Dreamland.
Your nightstand should have a reading lamp with low light, so you will not disturb your partner if you decide to read at night. The nightstand is also the appropriate area for placing your alarm clock (unless you know you are lazy, and prefer it across the room, forcing you to get up) and storing you remotely if you enjoy watching TV in bed. However, the nightstand is never the place for electronic gadgets! A bedroom is a place for rest, and iPhones, tablets, and laptops are a constant distraction that is better left in the family room or home office.
These hints should help you to decorate your bedroom with ease and create a space that is cozy, beautiful, and free from stress. Your bedroom should be all about luxury and relaxation, not the worries of your everyday life. So, take the time to develop a room that creates a quiet, peaceful feeling within you.
