Your bedroom is your sanctuary. It’s the place you most look forward to returning to at the end of a hard day and if you live with other people, it’s the one part of your home which is all about you. Your bedroom is an image of your personality and it’s the place where you feel most at peace, so it makes sense that you should put a lot of thought into your décor.
Whilst it should be all about you, your bedroom should also be a calming place, which means you should try to stick to pale, soothing colours and keep make sure it’s not too cluttered. If you like bright colours, it’s a good idea to allocate one part of your room for bright decorations and try to keep the rest simple. You could even try separating your bed from the rest of the room with a curtain. This will allow you to make your room as bright and crazy as you want whilst still having a relaxing area to sleep in.
Whilst many people think that a bed is the main piece of furniture you need to think about in your bedroom, many actually find that all furnishings need to have equal thought put into them. This is because unlike a living room or kitchen for example, bedroom furniture is very noticeable. There is not a lot to distract from it and since the room is primarily for sleeping, a lot of the furnishings we put in our bedrooms are there for decoration, whilst in other rooms things can be chosen due to practicality and don’t necessarily have to blend in with the rest of the furniture.
In actual fact, your bed could be considered the least important part of your bedroom décor because it is covered by duvets and pillows which you can choose to compliment your room. Some of the more important pieces include your wardrobe, drawers and dressing table. These pieces have nothing to cover them so they should be chosen carefully. Obviously you should choose furniture which suits your personal style, but if you’re going for a calming theme, then you could try looking at shabby chic and French style furniture, as these styles are a perfect combination of elegance, luxury and homeliness.
A dressing table is something which you can go all out on when it comes to luxury because it’s a part of your room where beauty is the main focus. There are lots of styles ranging from simple ones to elegantly decorated ones with intricate mirror detail. It’s a particularly important part of bedroom décor because it can be used as a place to display ornaments, photos and perfume bottles, so it will be naturally eye-catching to those who see it.
Whatever kind of décor you choose for your bedroom, it’s important to make sure there is not too much clutter or too much going on because your bedroom is a room where you need to be able to relax.
