Your bedroom should be your special safe place where you can relax and rest after a long day. Therefore, be sure to decorate it in a way that will make you feel happy and comfortable to be there. Bedroom decor styles vary, so it is up to you to opt for the ones that you like. So for that reason, here are five easy steps that will help you decorate your bedroom.
Choose sleep-friendly colours
This is the first decor step you’ll have to follow. Sure, painting your bedroom bright orange or yellow might seem like a fun idea. In reality, colour psychology plays an enormous role when it comes to the quality of sleep. Brighter colours can cause a surge in energy or even contribute to you feeling anxious when that’s the last thing you need. Instead, opt for nude/neutral/pastel colours that promote tranquillity and feelings of calm and composure. If you want a pop of bright colours here and there, then opt for decor pieces, such as curtains or paintings.
Rugs and art are an amazing addition to your bedroom
Some decor elements exist to bring warmth to the space. And the bedroom is a space that benefits from a touch of warmth. The rug is such a decor piece, so if you pick the one that fits with the rest of the decor, you can end up with a truly stunning result. Feel free to experiment with different textures, prints, colours and sizes. Layering rugs is also a good idea if you can’t make up your mind. Furthermore, art pieces, such as paintings, posters or tapestries can create a sense of personality and make your bedroom feel more intimate and familiar.
Make sure there is cozy bedding
Regardless of your decor preferences, a bedroom needs soft bedding items, such as pillows and a big duvet in order to help you sleep comfortably. Bedding items should be tied to the functionality of your bed, so be sure to assess your sleeping needs first. Do you prefer more pillows or just a large one? How about a duvet? If duvet isn’t an option, then consider to shop for weighted blankets online as you’ll find amazing pieces that will perfectly fit your bed. Opting for neutral or earthy colors is also a great idea, as these are easy to combine with bolder prints and colors.
Don’t forget the curtains or blinds
Access to natural light is crucial for your wellbeing, especially in the morning right after you wake up. However, sometimes, you’ll also want to hide from the harsh sun, mainly during the summer, when heat gets unbearable. This is why you should invest in quality curtains or blinds, and the good news is, these items can be excellent decor pieces as well. So whether you want some shade, privacy or to make your bedroom pretty, chances are you’ll benefit from mourning a curtain or getting blinds. Also, if you want a more dramatic look of higher ceilings, then it is important to mount the curtain rod higher than the window frame.
Decluttering is also important
Some people treat their bedroom as an additional storage space. That often makes sense, especially if you live in a smaller home or an apartment. But, if you want your bedroom to be your stylish oasis of peace, then it’s important to declutter it regularly. Also, be sure to keep your clothes in one place. If you feel too tired to fold your clothes every night, then place it nicely on a chair or your vanity table. Keeping everything on the floor, or cluttering your bedroom with everything you don’t need to use, will only make it look chaotic and messy.
These easy steps will help you decorate your room and make it look pretty and comfortable. As long as you use our designer-approved tips, your bedroom will be your safe space that you’ll enjoy returning to after a long and tiring day.
