How to decorate your bedroom to fit your style
We spend more than a third of our lives in our bedrooms. Bedrooms are deeply personal spaces that represent safety, relaxation, and romance. So, naturally, we want them to reflect our style the most. That puts a lot of pressure on us to style them just right. You might have looked at pictures of cozy bedrooms online and wondered what kind of magic makes such bedrooms possible.
Today, we’ll answer that question and help you discover how you can decorate your bedroom to fit your style.
What does your ideal bedroom look like?
Before you start styling your bedroom, you need to have some idea of what the end result will look like. So, before you do anything, use your imagination to picture how you want your bedroom to look like. Do you want a rug? Where do you want the bed to be? Do you want a lot of open, airy space? What kind of seating would you like to include?
Write down what you want your ideal bedroom to look like; including drawings, if you can sketch. If you can’t, look up pictures online and just include them in your notes.
Decide on a color theme
Your color theme will serve as a basic guide on how you can color your walls and what colors your linens and furniture should be. Obviously, you should include your favorite colors, but choose more calming shades of them. For example, if your favorite color is green, lean more towards viridian green instead of a bright lime green.
Is your bedroom small, or large?
All of us want to have a king-sized bed in our bedrooms, but you have to be realistic here. If your room is small, you’ll have to get furniture accordingly and get creative with the space available to you. On the other hand, if your room is large, it still doesn’t mean you can fill it up with whatever strikes your fancy. Small or large, leave room (pun intended) for plenty of light and air.
Measure the space you have available before you start getting furniture. Don’t get a huge bed/dresser in a small bedroom, get creative and use your space wisely.
Keep it simple
When it comes to bedroom décor, simplicity is key. It’s tempting to shove everything you could ever want in your bedroom, but resist those temptations and keep everything simple. What does simple mean when it comes to your room? It means sticking to necessities and leaving plenty of room for movement, light, and air.
Use art to truly personalize your space
Your bedroom is the space where you should really use the art you’re passionate about. It can be anything from paintings to posters to figurines to wall-art. Focus on art that’s calming and passionate for you.
Use the ceiling
Far too many people ignore the ceiling when decorating their room. It’s a huge space that you can utilize to truly express yourself, and you’ll thank yourself for it every night you’re going to sleep. Think of what kind of art you’d like to feature on it, even if it’s something as simple as ceiling lights, and make it a reality.
While this is not an extensive list, we hope these tips help you personalize your space to your liking. Let us know if you’d like us to cover this topic in further detail. Have fun decorating!
