Decorating Your Bedroom

And now, we’ve reached a more private sanctum of the house. This is the place for relaxation and peace, so it’s always important for the design, furniture and things to really reflect that.

1. Carefully choose the colors of your room. This will be the place where you will be sleeping. The colors, whether bright or subdued have to keep you asleep and not awake for most of the night. Colors will also affect the look of the room. For example, brighter colors will make a small room big and darker colors will make a big room smaller.

2. Choose a color and overall theme. The colors of your wall will also contribute to the rest of the design. Your bed frame, bed comforters, pillow cases, armoires, vanity tables, desk, etc. do not have to be the same color, but they have to complement each other. Small out-of-place things are fine in moderation but when everything is out of place with each other, it won’t be pleasing to the eyes and might make you stay away from the bedroom.

3. Don’t forget texture. Adding texture, like a padded headboard or a small carpet or small frames on the wall will keep your bedroom from looking too flat and model-home looking. Texture also adds personality to any room.

4. Add a theme. You can also use a theme to dictate what your bedroom will look like, but this is a little tricky since themes can most of the time represent the present and not have a timeless design.

Whatever you decide, make sure that everything works together. They don’t have to be the same color, design or size but they all have to complement each other. Otherwise, it’ll make the bedroom look too busy and adversely affect your sleep at the same time.
