The reality is that a lot of work is going to go into the planning and the execution, and you might start feeling a little lost and overwhelmed because of it.
The good news is that there are experts online who can help you with your questions, and tips that you can use as a guideline to getting that dream bedroom. If this sounds like something you need, keep reading.
In case you forget during the course of your project – you’ll be spending most of your time in your bedroom if you’re anything like any of us. And with the pandemic plaguing the earth, your odds of needing to stay inside have pretty much more than doubled.
This is why, if you have to choose, you should invest in things like the right mattress for you instead of a fancy new dressing table – your old one can be re-painted or you can buy a second hand one online, but you can’t compromise on how at ease you are in your new bedroom.
Create a Vision Board
Gone are the days when matching furniture was all the rage. Now, it’s all about furniture that doesn’t match at all but still goes together, which can be hard to find if you have an untrained eye, or if you just aren’t sure what that’s supposed to look like.
This is where mood boards and vision boards come into play, and you might need one if you want to make sure you end up with the room you envisioned in your head. You can use photos of furniture you like, textures, quotes, and even photos of certain aesthetics that you want to match.
Once you go shopping – try matching everything you get to the mood board instead of each other.
Choose the Right Decor
The right decor is what’s going to take your room from a work in progress to your dream finally made into reality, which is why you should never underestimate its importance. Take the time to look into what kind of decor you want, the aesthetics you’re going for, and the room you have inside.
While it doesn’t make sense for you to cover every surface with small decorative pieces, a few statement posters or paintings on your wall coupled with the right decor on the floor and the side table can definitely bring your whole design together.
Don’t Forget the Floor
If you have a lot of room in your bedroom, chances are the regular bedroom furniture won’t be enough to cover it, and without the right floor plan, your bedroom can start looking bare. A simple solution is to get a good-quality rug or carpet that goes with the rest of your room.
This will cover some floor space and give your room a cozy feel without making it look closed off. But be careful about your color choices – light-colored rugs can get dirty pretty quickly, and you might want to opt out of even having one if you’re prone to dust allergies.
Don’t Ignore the Lighting
Once you have everything in your room sorted, it’s time to think about the lighting in your room. Nothing beats natural light, which is why you might want curtains that let it in during the day. On the other hand, you need to invest in the right kind of lamps and lights in the bedroom so you have adequate light at night as well.
