When you begin to plan your dream bedroom, you need to think about many considerations. It should not only look fabulous, but also be a comfortable, inviting, and relaxing place where you can get all of the sleep you need.
Decorating themes are often popular for bedrooms, but it can be challenging to pull off a themed room without the room itself looking over the top. Before you decide to go for nautical, French country, minimalist, or any other theme, take a look around some style and design sites to discover what looks good and follow the tips below to create a dream bedroom.
Color Yourself Dreamy
You may be tempted to express your personality with bright, vibrant colors in your bedroom; after all, it is your personal space. However, before you splash DayGlo orange across the walls, consider the fact that bright colors are stimulating and they can affect the quality of your sleep.
Instead, go for softer blues and greens, layered with whites and creams. These more delicate hues can help you relax at the end of a busy day and promote restful sleep. If you want to go for the latest trend, then wash your walls in shades of gray. High-quality white linens will not only give you an instant luxurious look, but they also will feel fabulous, go with every color choice, and last forever.
Light the Way
Sweet dreams require sweet lighting, and a harsh overhead glare is not what you need to help you doze off. Instead of relying on a central light fixture on your ceiling, place lamps next to your bed and at other points around your room. The softer glow will create a relaxing atmosphere, and the lamps can help you add a splash of color or pattern without overwhelming the room.
Boost Indoor Air Quality and Room Comfort
The correct indoor air quality in your bedroom is essential to getting a good night’s sleep. By installing an efficient HVAC system, you will be able to use your thermostat to set the optimal temperature for sleeping. By setting the thermostat to heat or cool the room only when you are at home, you can save a considerable amount of energy and money.
An efficient HVAC system can also filter your indoor air, removing contaminants and providing you with a cleaner atmosphere.
Put Your Feet First
When you swing your feet off the bed, do they land on a soft, welcoming surface or are they shocked by a cold floor? A luxurious rug beside your bed not only looks fabulous, but it will also ease you into your day without the thermal shock to your delicate toes.
As an alternative, you could splurge on an extravagant area rug and frame the floor area around your bed.
Make a Statement
If you are someone who likes to convey your personality by decorating with something unconventional, then keep the majority of your room low key and express yourself with one, glorious, in-your-face feature piece.
You could create a headboard from driftwood, drape a spectacular blanket or quilt across the end of your bed, or frame some flea market finds in shadow boxes for your wall. The possibilities are endless.
