The design of your bedroom, not only reflects your personal taste but also plays a significant role, in how much comfort you can derive out of this private space to recharge yourself after a long day’s work. One cannot stress enough, the importance of relaxation, especially in times like these, when the Coronavirus pandemic keeps our anxiety levels high almost all the time. This make it important for home owners to combine personal tastes with basic needs, when designing the bedroom interiors.
We look at ways to design the bedroom, so that it not only looks stunning but also provides utmost comfort.
Straight and simple design
Those who do not like to combine too many elements or colours, would prefer a contemporary bedroom design. As a thumb rule, such concepts work on the principles of straight lines, the use of basic colours and least number of décor items.
A splash of colours
Going contemporary has its colourful side, as well, as is evident in the picture below. An accent wall painted in a shade of your choice, could add some drama in the bedroom. You can complement this colour scheme with contrasting shades, for other things in the room.
If you like changing the look of your home often, opt for wall decals, also known as wall stickers. Complement the bedroom with other colourful elements like curtains and furniture. This setting also works well in small bedrooms.
The poster bed
If you are looking at something different, nice and elegant, a bedroom with a poster bed would do wonders. Depending on your mood, you could create a fusion of ethnic and contemporary designs, to deck up the space.
Indoor plants for the bedroom
Indoor plants not only purify the air within the house but also add a lively and natural aura to the premises. These could also be used as part of your bedroom décor in contemporary, as well as ethnic settings. Plants are ideal for both, small and large spaces.
A modern and simple bedroom
Here, you can see modern and minimalistic elements blending extremely well with natural elements, along with light and colours. For apartments with limited space, this setting is perfect.
A wooden touch
Those obsessed with wood will find this bedroom décor to their liking. Right from the ceiling to the floor, everything has a wooden touch. In such a décor plan, however, keep wooden furniture items to a minimum. Also, ensure that the space is well lit naturally, as well as artificially.
While bunk beds are the popular choice in the bedroom, for families with children, you can use vibrant colours for the walls. As the space must be well lit at all times, avoid dark colours. Keep the décor playful and neat.
An elegant bedroom
The wall in which the fireplace and the stone work are embedded, the ceiling lights and the magnificent rug, along with the limited number of elements, give this bedroom an elegant look.
This bedroom setting is simple and elegant. The wall-sized mirror gives visual appeal and adds depth to the room, without having to add too many décor elements.
The royal touch
An all-white theme is an easy way to add a royal touch to your bedroom décor. The curtains, the chandelier, the furniture, the mirror, the cushions/bolsters and all other accessories must work in harmony, to complete the look.
Pick a theme of colours, to give your bedroom a bright look. However, ensure that you do not go overboard with the colours.
Minimalistic white décor
An all-white décor could be the go-to theme for those who like to keep it simple. A splash of colour here and there, would enrich the overall look of the bedroom.
Proper lighting can lift the spirit of any space. When used in coordination with other elements, lights can change the look and feel of your bedroom.
Velvet adds an element of luxury and warmth in bedrooms. Use some modern furnishings, to complete this look.
A centrepiece for the bedroom
False ceiling work and a grand chandelier adorning the space, can also add a royal touch to your bedroom. Just complement these with fittings and bespoke furnishings, including the bed.
Curtains for the bedroom
Bedroom curtains and canopies can be used to create an unusual setting. You can throw in some beautiful cushions, to enrich the space.
The pull-out arrangement
For home owners who have space constraints, a pull-out bed that acts as sofa during the day and a cosy bed at night, works perfectly. This is also ideal for guest rooms, where the bed is not always in use and folding it away helps keep the space clean.
Bonus tips to avoid mistakes in bedroom design
- Always be mindful of the size of the room, before ordering your new bed. Too large a bed would occupy a lot of space making movement difficult, especially if the room is small.
- A sole central ceiling light for bedrooms, would be a bad idea. It has to be scattered all over.
- Have enough plug sockets for lamps, mobile chargers, perfume diffusers, etc.
- Make sure there is plenty of storage space and it is effectively used.
