Nothing beats the feeling of kicking off your shoes and retiring to bed at the end of a long day at work or home with the kids. If you use your bedroom for work, reading, or sleeping, it is necessary to create a space that makes you feel comfortable.

With these tricks, your bedroom will not only look great, but bedtime will be more enjoyable as well. But wait, there’s more. It’s not about blowing a lot of money on this endeavour. Changing your design strategy and refocusing your priorities is key. 

Remove extra furniture

Take a step back and look at the room with a fresh perspective. A disorganized and cluttered room can lead to suffocating.  

You will be amazed at the difference when you remove one piece of furniture from the room. Creating more space will help to declutter the room and give you more breathing space. 

Size matters in the bedroom 

When shopping for bedroom furniture, be realistic and select units that are the right size for the space. King size beds may sound great, but they can overwhelm a small room, making it feel out of proportion and making circulation more difficult. A queen-size bed is preferable, or if it’s a guest or children’s bedroom, a double or single-size bed.

Create a focal point for your room

Rather than trying to cram too many ideas into a small space, focus on one main feature. Nothing is more distracting than having multiple things to focus on in a room. 

When you walk into your bedroom at the end of a long day, the sight of mess and clutter can be frustrating. All of the things you use in your bedroom should have their spot so that you can quickly and easily pick up all of the toys on the floor and store them away. Keep a toy box in your child’s bedroom. The bedroom should also be equipped with a laundry basket so that dirty laundry can be easily removed from the floor and placed in a washing machine.

Find a source of light

Consider hanging a mirror next to or across from a window in your home. Use it to bounce natural light around it softens shadows that may have previously darkened a room. Your room will appear bigger as well if you have a nice view from your window. A bedroom mirror will be useful for a last-minute glance before you leave your house.

Don’t copy the “catalogue look”

I think we’ve all looked through a catalogue from our favourite interiors store and thought, “I want that exact look in my room!”. Aim to mix things up a bit when purchasing soft furnishings for your room. It will add to the feeling of homeliness. 

Soothe your walls, and your soul will be at ease.

Colour schemes for bedrooms can help promote restful sleep and have a soothing effect on the occupant as soon as they enter the room, regardless of whether it is a master bedroom, children’s bedroom, or visitor’s bedroom. 

Beige, light grey, and cream are all examples of calming colours. Add some colour to the scheme with pastel blues, greens, golds, and yellows. Avoid bright primary colours in the bedroom, as they can be overstimulating and make it difficult to relax in the space.

Window Dressings

Window dressings do so much more than just blocking light in a room. They also add style and colour. In addition to dressing up a window, they also add an element of interest to it. Dramatic or understated, they can enhance the look of a room. Either way, they’ll have a major impact on a bedroom’s design. Adding window dressing will make the room slightly so interesting.

Sleek sheer curtains are a great idea when if privacy is a concern. Even if they are drawn during the day, they will still allow light to pass through. Consider using a blind to block light if required or a second pair of heavier curtains to create a stunning effect.

Wrap yourself in a blanket and relax

Put some finishing touches on the room, and you’re done! If you want to make your bed look inviting, layer it with luxurious sheets and pillows.

The bedspread should be complete with quilts and throws. It is also a good idea to have a little extra cover on hand when it gets cold at night. Combining square European style pillows with regular shaped pillows is a great idea. Alternatively, place a European-style pillow in front of your rectangular pillows in a pillowcase of a contrasting colour. On top of that, place decorative cushions on either side of the bed. All the pillows and cushions might make it a little difficult to get into bed, but it will look great.
