Home Improvement Tips for that Dream Bedroom

Of all the rooms in your home, it’s strange to think that you actually spend the most time in your bedroom. In comparison, it is the room we spend the least amount of money on decoration. Although you might justify this by saying that this is the room where you only sleep, the bedroom would be more welcome, if even just for sleeping, if it has an inviting and luxurious decorative finish.

The Bed

If people spend the most time in the bedroom sleeping, then why do most people not spend the time choosing the ideal bed? In reality, this is one piece of contemporary furniture that you should never compromise on as a good quality bed can last up to a decade. If you share the bed, a double might not give you both enough room so a queen sized or even king sized bed might be more appropriate. You also need to consider how much space in your room you want the bed to occupy. There is also the type of mattress, from a soft to a hard mattress depending on how much support you need.

Dedicated Room

To achieve that dream bedroom, you need to ensure that the sole purpose of your bedroom is to relax and sleep in. This means that any other items that may have been placed in your bedroom such as exercise equipment, desks, or anything not related to relax and rest should be moved out. This will ensure that you are in the correct mind frame when you enter the bedroom and not pre-occupied with other things on your mind.

Decoration

The key when it comes to creating a relaxing atmosphere in your bedroom. Just think about that feeling when you enter a bedroom in a five star hotel, and re-create it. Think glamour and luxury, so to achieve a fashionable look in your bedroom opt for a large, plush headboard, heavily patterned wallpaper on just one wall and exquisite soft furnishings such as lots of pillows and cushions and impressive curtains.

Storage

Your bedroom often houses a lot of your personal possessions like clothing, shoes, and other personal items and even papers. These items can take up a lot of room, so all these items need to be neatly tucked out of sight. Storage is important to achieving this so look for under-bed storage, tall wardrobes with lots of space, dressers and bedside tables with additional storage.

Lighting

To complete the dream bedroom, you need soft, diffused lights. Shutters on the windows are a great way of controlling natural light, allowing brightness during the day and good blocking out at night. Bedside or table lamps with soft wattage bulbs can help to create a functional yet soft light for reading. An uplighter lamp in the corner can add a touch of romance to any room.
