We bet if anyone asked you, you’d already know what kind of bedroom you’d really want to be living in. It could be anything from luxurious or cozy, over the top to minimalistic. But every time you think about making that bedroom a reality, you feel lost. Sometimes you don’t even know where to begin, and sometimes it feels like you’ll never get it right, so why try?
Well, the good news is that today you’re going to learn about some great tips and tricks that would help you make your dream bedroom a reality. Think about it like this. It isn’t how your bedroom looks that’s most important, but how living in it makes you feel.
Get the Right Mattress
We just mentioned how it’s important to think about how your dream bedroom feels to you. It won’t do you any good if you invest all that time and effort into getting the perfect bedroom and neglect the most important thing of all – the bed.
Do your research before you invest in a new mattress though. Sites like Us Mattress provide a lot of information and reviews which shouldn’t be taken lightly. They’ve established a whole business based on the trust that consumers place on their opinion.
Once you’ve done your research online, think about the kind of mattress that would suit you best, and go for it.
Pick a Theme
Before you start buying new furniture or painting over your old one helter skelter, think about how you want the end result to look like. You can even take some photos off the internet and prepare a “mood board” of sorts, with photos of items similar to what you want around your room.
When altering or buying furniture, don’t think about whether it’ll match the rest of the furniture in your home or not, and think about whether it’ll fit with your overall theme or not. This way, even if you’re choosing items that don’t quite go well together they’ll make sense when you place them inside the room, but if you focus on buying matching furniture you might end up with a room that’s completely different from what you wanted it to look like.
Accent Walls Are Your Friends
If you don’t want to completely change your whole room, an accent wall might take you one step closer to it. Just pick one of the walls in the room that makes most sense, color it how you like, and decorate it in a way that fits your dream bedroom style.
This way you’ll at least have part of your bedroom looking how you want it to look.
If you need suggestions, dark and rich shades like olive green and navy blue are really popular these days. Then we also have colors like a deep, rich purple, maroon, and even a deep pink. If you want to give your room a more glamorous look you can go for some patterns and bold designs on your wall, like silver or gold strips or zig zags on a deep, dark shade. Let your imagination run wild and see what floats your boat.
Maximize Your Space
We hardly think anyone’s dream bedroom is going to be stuffy and small, but when you’re working with limited space it can be a good idea to look into the theories of space maximization and space saving, and apply them to your bedroom.
According to this theory, you need to carefully consider all the exits and windows in the room before you start thinking about where you want to place the bed and the desk. Doing it right can mean that even if you do nothing but move all the furniture in your room around, the space will end up feeling better than it did before.
Think About the Small Touches
Your dream bedroom doesn’t have to happen overnight. Make small changes in your room everyday to work your way up to there, like changing the lamp to look more like it belongs in your “new” room than this one, and buying the right bed covers.
This tip also applies to post-bedroom makeover upkeep. If you simply paintover the walls and change the furniture, but not the bed covers and the mirror frame, there’s little chance of it going together, especially if you completely changed what your room looks like.
