Your bedroom is your personal haven to where you retreat after a long and stressful day. It’s where you spend time to rest and relax; hence, the need to make your room look and feel comfortable. It’s like creating a hotel-like ambiance, where, as soon as you arrive in the hotel room, it’s dragging you in to rest.
From having the right storage solutions to keep your bedroom well organized, to incorporating the style that you want for your bedroom, there are so many ways for you to come up with both a stylish and functional space. If you’re looking for ideas, you’ve come to the right place.
1. Customize Your Beddings
Bedding serves the functional purpose of providing a layer of covering for your mattress and pillows. Good quality bedding may also contribute to better sleep.
To add a hint of style, opt for plain but classic bedding. Just imagine those white or off-white sheets in hotels. You can make it even more stylish and classier by customizing it. This ensures meeting that perfect balance between fun and polished.
2. Stick To Relaxing Colors
Even if you love bright colors, you may want to stay away from having those in your bedroom. Stick to relaxing colors. Albeit plain, it doesn’t mean it’s not stylish. In fact, subdued, neutral, and relaxing colors are more functional in such a way that they’re easier to style. This way, you won’t have to worry about clashing colors when there are too many things going on.
3. Install Sconces
Sconces are a great way to have ambient lighting in your room, without taking up too much space. Unlike floor lamps, sconces are wall lights, literally stuck on the wall.
When redecorating, sconces are a functional way to have more lighting, especially for reading. Style-wise, even when the lights aren’t switched on, they make plain bedroom walls look more interesting and well-designed.
4. Buy Nightstands
If you don’t have nightstands or bedside tables from RJ Living or any other brand just yet, then buy a pair (one for each side of your bed). If you have one already, but it’s old-fashioned or, worse, broken, then get a new pair. Even if the nightstand may be the only big investment you’ll make for your bedroom this year, that’s already a big enough change.
Nightstands can make your bedroom look homier. They’re also a sneaky way to add more storage space, particularly when you choose those with drawers.
5. Bring In More Natural Light
While you want to have blackout curtains for nighttime, during the day, it’s a different story. Having more natural light is the way to go.
Assess your bedroom’s window. Is it positioned in such a way that you’re able to maximize the coming in of light? Make changes to your window, such that you can make the most out of the available light in your bedroom.
During the day, opening your windows allows fresh air to come in, and lots of light, too. It’s a functional upgrade such that your utility bill will surely be reduced significantly, with less light consumption during daytime. The presence of more light also gives your room that airier and more pleasant feel.
6. Experiment With Wallpapers
Experimenting with wallpapers is another good way to redecorate your bedroom. For one, they’re very easy to install, as well as replace. Should you, one day, decide that you no longer like your bedroom’s current aesthetics, you can always peel it off with ease and replace it with a new wallpaper. What’s more, you can choose from various styles and prints.
7. Use Wood On Your Ceilings
Tired of plain and drab ceilings? Why not put wood up there? It’s a neutral and cozy way of adding texture and style to plain, old ceilings. Wood is also effective in making a room feel warmer. So, in a way, you’re also adding insulation.
Dark wood is a good choice. Not only will it stay as a classic trend for so many years to come, but it can withstand wear and tear, too.
Did you know that a well-designed space actually has the power to create a positive mind? This is what you should strive to create in your bedroom. Surely, the last thing you want after a long, busy, and stressful day is to go home to a messy and uninviting room. Make it a priority project for this year to give your bedroom a stylish and functional upgrade. Most importantly, make sure it reflects your style and has all of the elements you wish to have in a bedroom.
