A bedroom is supposed to be your safe haven. You spend a lot of time in this one room without even
realising it. It is your space to relax, which means that you should pay extra attention to the décor.
The key to decorating your bedroom is creating a calming atmosphere. So calming in fact that you
won’t recognise it most of the time thanks to being asleep. Trends are always going to change, so
let’s look a few unique ways to re-decorate your bedroom that won’t go out of style.
Use Light Colours
You may find it silly to have lighter colours in a room, but there is a method behind the madness.
Darker colours might sound like a good idea at first. A dark room is easier to sleep in, after all.
However, these dark patterns can make the room feel claustrophobic and; therefore,
A lighter choice of paint or wallpaper will give your bedroom an open atmosphere. What’s more,
these light colours will reflect more light into the room in the mornings, providing you with a natural
way to wake up.
This lighter choice can also extend to your furniture as well. Try to select brighter woods for your
storage equipment and you can add to this relaxed motif.
Choose The Right Blinds
Curtains are a valid option for decorating your bedroom; however, they can provide some
difficulties. The wind can easily blow this material out of the way, which leaves gaps for light to shine
through. This problem is especially troubling during the summer months.
A set of wooden venetian blinds will give you the lighter effect mentioned previously, and will stay
still if you choose to sleep with the window open. Of course, you know how you sleep best; so there
is never any harm in checking out the new fantastic alternatives to traditional wood blinds.
You can also choose to place net curtains behind your blind to give you a bit more privacy. You don’t
even have to be overly selective with these net curtains either. The chances are they will be hidden
from view most of the time. Experiment with these options to work out which type of blind works
best for your bedroom.
Match The Ceiling
It sounds a little bleak, but the ceiling is probably going to be the area that you stare at most in your
bedroom. Therefore, it is always important to keep it as bland as possible.
While unique ceiling patterns have come back into style, you don’t want to find yourself fixated on
this stimuli whilst you are trying to get to sleep.
Try your best to match the ceiling to walls so that it doesn’t stand out in any way. This approach will
give you one less distraction in your calm space.
Reduce The Art
Art is a very important part our lives. Hanging up certain pictures and paintings can evoke a strong
emotional response that reflects who we are as people. However, you don’t want to be evoking
anything other than a relaxed feeling when you enter your bedroom.
It is fine to have some wall art hanging in the bedroom, but try to keep it to a minimum. Also, do not
hang anything that provokes any sort of negative emotion. You don’t want to go to sleep or wake up
to something that is going to make you depressed. Family pictures are probably a good start to
decorating your bedroom.
Use The Right Amount Of Storage Space
Cupboards and drawers are an essential part of anyone’s bedroom. These are needed to store all of
our clothes, and where better to put them than in the room where you actually get dressed.
Unfortunately, some of these storage items can be cumbersome. They jut out in places that make
navigating the space difficult. The only way to get around this is by keeping your storage items to a
minimum. Only include the clothes that you will use on a regular basis. You don’t have to throw out
all of your clothes. Just put them in another storage area if you find that you don’t use them as
Use The Space Wisely
As mentioned above, some of your bedroom furniture can poke out places to make walking around
your room a real chore. However, not every bedroom is perfectly square. Some rooms have niches
and alcoves that can give a room its character. What’s more, you can use these little grooves to your
Slot your furniture into some of these alcoves to reduce how much space that they take up. Your
bedroom has a unique floor plan, so use it to the best of your ability.
How you choose to decorate your room is entirely down to your personal tastes. However, take our
advice to get the best night’s sleep while also staying in style.
