Your bedroom is one of the most important rooms at home. After a long, tiresome day, nothing feels as relaxing as taking a shower and retiring to bed to unwind and sleep. That’s why you need to make it a comfortable place to unwind and relax. It is not necessarily that you spend a lot of money in making your bedroom look great; there a few creative ideas you can apply to make it look stylish and more relaxing. Take a look at these ideas and see how they can affect the design and tone of your bedroom.
1. Remove the furniture you rarely use
An overcrowded bedroom feels disorganized and will not relax your mind well. One way to reduce the clutter in your bedroom is by removing pieces of furniture you rarely use. Step back and ask yourself, do I really need those two chairs or the four paintings on the wall in this room? Removing a piece of furniture or two from your bedroom will make a big difference in terms of space created. Your room will feel less cluttered and more spacious. If you cannot remove a piece of furniture, consider reducing the size of the furniture in your room. When shopping for furniture for your bedroom, choose pieces that do not take up a lot of space. A king size bed may sound great, but if you have a small bedroom, it will take up too much room and make your room feel crowded. Besides, it will make movements around the room difficult. If you have a small bedroom, opt for a queen size bed to give your room a more open feeling.
2. Create a point of reference
Instead of having many designer portraits on your wall, think about having one main feature. A focal point will help people concentrate their attention on one place and make your room appear more spacious. Too many focal points can make your room feel busy and cluttered, and will not help with the relaxation process as your eyes will constantly be moving from one aspect of the room to another.
3. Keep your room tidy
It is so frustrating and off-putting to see clutter and things scattered everywhere in your bedroom when you are looking to relax at the end of a long day. Try keeping everything in its rightful place to keep your room neat and organized. When it comes to kids’ bedrooms, keep a toy box where they can store their toys. Also, have a laundry basket near or in your bedroom to keep your dirty laundry before bringing it to your washing machine. Also, make your bed in the morning. I’m sure this might not be favorite of the tasks, but trust me, you will feel better when you walk into your bedroom to find a tidy, inviting bed to relax on in the evening.
4. Light it up
Increase the light coming into your bedroom by having translucent sheers to allow more light into your room. Also, you can place a mirror to an area adjacent to your window to reflect more natural light into your room. This will soften shadows created by fixtures in your bedroom. If you have a nice view, a mirror will bring more of that beautiful view closer to you, thereby making your room feel bigger. An extra mirror near your bedroom door is also handy for that last-minute peep before you leave the house.
5. Create an amazing headboard
Frame your bed with a stylish headboard. A statement headboard can make any old bed look amazing and stylish. Depending on the style you want to achieve, you can either create an ornate or natural look. You can also go the modern way by having a soft fabric headboard. If you decide to go the modern way, consider choosing fabrics that have colors complementing the dominant color in your room.
6. Repaint your walls
Choose the right paint for your walls can allow you to have a more restful night’s sleep. Picking a color with a calming effect will soothe your mind and help you sleep better. Peaceful colors include beige, cream, greys, and browns. Avoid bold colors, such as yellow, green or red, as they can over-stimulate your bedroom making it somehow busy.
That’s it. You don’t need to invest heavily to make your bedroom look and feel better. With these minor adjustments you will have an aesthetically pleasing as well as cozy bedroom.
