Creating your dream bedroom has never been more achievable that it is now, with hundreds of furniture brands and thousands of paints, wallpapers and accessories to choose between. The bedroom is one of the most important rooms in your home, whether you are wanting to get a good nights sleep or simply unwind after a long day at the office, there is no other room where comfort is so paramount. Therefore you must look to team comfort with style if you want to get the most out of your bedroom…lets face it, half the time you are in there you will be asleep so it would be foolish not to focus solely on style over comfort.
But where do you start when you are trying to design your ideal bedroom? Whether you are going for a classic or modern look, the best way to begin is from the ground up! Here are two of our favourite bedroom ideas to get you on your way.
Less Is More
The first of our room ideas focuses on minimalism. This is a great style for bedrooms, especially when a lot of us struggle to deal with the abundance of products and things pushed in our faces on a daily basis. To us minimalism in bedrooms doesn’t mean just having a bed and lamp, rather it is focusing on having fewer pieces of furniture and accessories but those you do have are of a high quality product.
Look to invest in furniture that is multifunctional, such as a bed with storage units underneath it so you can de-clutter a room. Add neutral colours for a calming effect but don’t be afraid to have a pop of colour here or there. A great way to achieve this is with a statement wall; choose one of your walls to paint or wallpaper differently to the rest of the room to make an eye-catching feature.
At the end of the day personal comfort is paramount, therefore it is very important that you style the bedroom to your taste rather than someone else’s. By doing this you will ensure you are comfortable and relaxed in the surroundings.
If you want to make an immediate statement with your bedroom then one of the best ways to do so is with the flooring. It might often be overlooked but by opting for wooding flooring you are creating a glamorous and classic look that a lot of people really prefer to carpet. Laminate is not only easy to install but it is also very cheap, making it more practical that carpet and easier to look after. Then simply add a rug or two for those finishing touches of comfort and style.
As the bed is the centerpiece of the room why not be adventurous and choose a rich material whether leather or a dark wood for the bed frame. Keep an eye out for vintage bed frames for added character. Throw on plenty of cushions and throws for added luxuriousness.
As ever decorations and details are key to creating a classic sleek look, you might want to consider replacing cupboard and wardrobe handles with vintage ones for a cheap and easy way to add touches of class.
