Bedroom Decorating Ideas
You can make your bedroom the best room in the house. The important thing is to make it comfortable and anyone who sees it should get a sense of your personality right away.
So how do you build a personal retreat? First, start with your bed. Do you like to stretch out or cuddle up in a ball? Do you need a firm mattress, or do you prefer to sink into your bed? And before you decide on the size and shape, think about the layout of the room and where it will fit. Once you have an idea of what you would like to sleep on, start brainstorming on how you’ll want to dress it up.
As far as bed coverings go, the sky is the limit. When it comes to covers, be creative but practical. Depending on the climate and whether you get hot or cold most easily, you’ll want to find the comforter or blanket that most suits your needs.
When buying sheets, a higher thread count usually ups the cost, but it doesn’t always mean better quality. If you can, feel the fabric to judge the softness… and then try to get a few different sets to complement the colors in your room and duvet covers.
Furniture should be stylish. Since the bed is the star of the show, any tables or chairs you have really need to earn their keep. If you find yourself tripping over a piece of furniture, ask yourself if it wouldn’t work better in another room, especially if it serves mostly as a storage space.
Throws and decorative pillows can turn your functional bed into a work of art. A well-placed candle can really fill the space, while little souvenirs add texture and personality to space. Framing favorite photos is a great way to transform your favorite moments into works of art!
Whatever your style, and however you decide to do it, the most important thing is to have fun. Done right, decorating your room is not a job, but a pleasure. It’s all about making space resonate with your energy – the more you put into it, the more you’ll get back when it’s time to relax.
