Everyone’s bedroom should be a haven to escape to, containing all your favourite colours, decorations and fabrics. However, there are some basic rules to stick to if you want to create a seriously sophisticated bedroom:
Instead of bold primary colours, choose soothing hues and calm tones from a monochromatic palette. Remember colour theory: gentle blues, lavenders, or green are considered calm and serene. Rich colours help set the mood of pleasure and comfort. These may include chocolates, deep oranges or turquoise. Use paler versions of your favourite colours in the bedroom.
Keep it simple
Your bedroom should look tranquil and simple, classy and elegant, no matter what decorating style you choose. To facilitate ease of movement, leave at least three feet between the bed and the wall or large pieces of furniture and at least two feet between the bed and low furniture, such as tables and dressers. Furnish your bedroom with just what you need. A bed, a bedside table or two, a dresser, and a chair are necessities. Accessories should be kept to a minimum. Pick a piece of artwork that you love, arrange some favourite photos, add flowers and candles, then leave it alone.
Plenty of storage
To add a sense of calm to your bedroom, store things out of sight to give a minimalist look. The room will look calmer and airier. Consider a side table that’s big enough and has drawers or a cupboard, behind which you can hide books, cosmetics, tissues or anything else you need but want out of view. For more storage, choose a round table or a small cabinet with drawers. Use an ottoman or storage trunk at the end of the bed to store extra sheets, blankets, and pillows. For easily-accessible storage, choose a bed with built-in shelves or sliding panels.
Choose the right size
When you are ready to buy bedroom furniture, start with the floor plan and measure the space properly. Furniture must fit the room, and this is especially true for bedroom furniture. Do not pick, heavy big beds and dressers for a small bedroom. For big rooms, choose furniture that fits it, too such as furniture and accessories that aren’t too small and look lost.
Include a Private Nook
Give yourself a special gift with a quiet place to sit and read. Make a cosy reading or relaxing area with a luxurious chair and footstool at the end of the bed or in a corner.
Should you have the space, construct a window seat underneath the window and enjoy the view and healthy natural light.
