Are you planning on redesigning your bedroom but having trouble not making it look generic? Choosing the perfect theme that suits your desires without looking too bland or tacky is a chore.
Here are some tips on how to make your bedroom uniquely yours without all the hassle.
Room space is incredibly important when it comes to how you want to decorate your room. Are you a maximalist or a minimalist, and do you have enough room for either? Make sure you have enough room to place the furniture and decor you desire. Double-check sizing whenever you purchase anything, especially online. Planning the layout of your room can also help when trying to buy furniture. You can also pick furniture that’s multi-purpose, for example, a drawer that you can use as a nightstand.
The main point is to find out how much room space you have and how much of it you want to use.
Plan out your budget before purchasing anything. You don’t want to accidentally overspend. Pick out items that you feel are a necessity to your room or that you see yourself using/liking in the long run. Don’t go for decor that is only trending because soon enough it’ll become a fad; pick out things you enjoy. Not only will this make your room more appealing to you but it’s money smart. By picking out furniture and decor you know you’ll like in the distant future you’ll save money in not needing to switch it out for newer items consistently. You don’t want your items to turn obsolete; pick out things you’ve been eyeing for a long time or had been interested in for an extended period.
Incorporating your Interests
Suit your bedroom to your interests to give it some personality. Make your room peaceful and serene with plants and a bookshelf, or make it loud and vibrant with posters and trinkets on your desk. Whatever look you may be going for can be easily achieved by searching for items that can incorporate any of your interests. You can pick things that are subtle, for example, if you enjoy reading you can add plants in your room to keep your room tranquil. On the other end, you can make things more obvious, for example, if you’re interested in music you can keep instruments in your room or even mount them on your wall.
Look for colours that go well together. Whether you want your room to just shade like white, black, or grey or a vibrant, colourful room you should plan since it ties into the furniture and decor you’ll be using. Go for colours in the same range rather than complimentary colours. Going for colours that are on the complete opposite of the spectrum of the colour wheel will be too harsh on the eyes. Picking all cold tones or warm tones would look a lot more fitting. Also adding hints of white or black in your room won’t negatively affect your colour scheme, it might actually bring everything together. You should also consider searching through websites to find popular colour schemes that are in season or would work with your bedroom.
Furniture & Decoration
Once you’ve completed the last 4 steps, finding decor is the easiest. Take into account how you want to incorporate your interests while also staying on budget and sticking with your colour scheme. As previously mentioned you also need to figure out if you want a minimalistic room or a minimalist one. If you want to go for a more maximalist feel but don’t have enough floor space invest in wall decor. Go for painting, posters, shelves, hanging plants, etc. Finding any decor can bring the whole room together, making it much cozier. Go for items that add to lighting; bedside lamps, LED Mirrors, and even different sorts of chandeliers. Lighting is incredibly important when it comes to setting the mood of a room.
