We spend a large amount of our time in our bedrooms, so creating a space that is personal and relaxing is crucial to ensure you’re comfortable from day to day. You want to have somewhere that you know you can retire to at the end of a busy day to wind down and relax, so it’s really beneficial to design a space that works for you. With bedroom décor, you also have the opportunity to be a little more adventurous, putting more of a unique, personal stamp on the style and with these easy tips, you’ll be able to create a space that boasts character with a unique edge.
Capture the Memories:
Throughout your lifetime you will create so many beautiful memories with friends and family that you’ll be able to cherish forever, and one lovely way to keep hold of those memories is to print out the photographs and display them in your bedroom. Having a bad day? One glance at your photo collage will instantly brighten your mood and lift your spirits, which we all need every now and then. Whether you decide to create a huge feature on the wall, you hang delicate Polaroid’s from string, or you frame a few of your absolute favourites, this feature is a really lovely touch to bedroom décor and is guaranteed to make it unique and personal to you.
Thanks to Pinterest, decoupage is now one of the biggest bedroom décor trends online. From the bedside table to a chest of drawers, there’s no longer any need to put up with your dull looking furniture pieces, you can now spruce them up and bring them to life with some colourful paper! Decoupage is the process of upcycling your old furniture and creating a whole new look, with bright colours, bold patterns and so on. It’s really useful for adding character to your bedroom and introducing a look that nobody else will have. Many people look online for some quality furniture, like these pieces from Furniture Plus Online, with the intention to then add decoupage to one of the panels or sides, simply adding a unique touch to the piece. It’s entirely up to you whether you want to upcycle some old furniture or add to a new piece!
Be Bed Creative:
With the bed taking up the majority of the space within the bedroom, it’s always worth being creative with it to brighten up the room properly. If it’s going to take up lots of space, why not play on that and create a bold focal point to draw the room together perfectly. From scatter cushions and teddy bears, to a snuggly throw, you can tailor your beds set up to suit your personal requirements. For many people, extra cushions are a must, so you can always benefit from adding a few additional scatter cushions into the mix to bulk out the bed a little bit!
Play with Lighting:
If your bedroom is one that receives lots of natural lighting, then you’re more than likely going to get a lovely amount of light filtering through the room from dawn until dusk. For those who have slightly less natural lighting and have to rely on the wonders of the bulb, you can really get creative and make your bedroom burst with character. Creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere in the bedroom is essential and also very easy when it comes to lighting. Introduce some stylish light fixtures to the walls or ceiling, along with some fairy lights or a nice lamp to help create more of an atmosphere. This will come in really handy on those darker winter evenings too.
