Enhancing The Appearance Of Your Bedroom

Enhancing The Appearance Of Your Bedroom

Enhancing the appearance of your bedroom can be an extremely overwhelming experience. There’s so much to think about and take into consideration – fabrics, paint, beddings and so much more! Here we have compiled some great Decorating Tricks For Your Bedroom.

Step #1: Fabrics

It is highly important to start bedroom decor with fabrics. Fabrics include beddings, pillows, window treatments, rugs, and any upholstered pieces such as headboards or chairs. A smart move is to have solid coloured beddings and then adding patterns on pillows and curtains. Tip: Keep larger pieces in a solid colour, preferably an even neutral colour.

Step #2: Furniture

Take a microscopic stock of all your bedroom furniture. Access if you need any new pieces? Ascertain if any of your current pieces would look better if they were painted or refurnished. A major decision to make is if any of your hardware needs an update. Tip: If part of your decor includes any upholstered pieces, make sure the fabrics will work with your other fabric selections and compliment each other.

Step #3: Wall paint

Select your wall paint! Most people would opt to start by selecting paint colour before anything else, but this is a grave mistake. It is much easier to select wall colour when you already have your bigger items such as fabrics and furniture selected. Tip: Get paint samples and bring them home to ascertain how well they work with your fabrics, furniture and lighting. Never under any circumstances settle for a colour at the hardware store as the conditions there are totally different to those in your bedroom.

Step #4: Window treatments

No bedroom redecorating process is fully and completely finished until you address your window dressing situation. Get rid of drab window treatments, and update your space with the hottest colours and latest fabrics. Considerations when updating window treatments include:

  • Letting in the light: One trend that’s always in style is using window treatments that allow a lot of natural light into the space.
  • Natural elements: Nature-inspired and eco-friendly materials and designs bring nature indoors. Bamboo, matchstick blinds and natural woven shades layered with simple sheer linen panels create an elegant yet earthy sophistication in any space.
  • Metallics: Silver, bronze and gold metallic fabrics layered with sheers are making a grand appearance in living rooms and bedrooms. The simple layering of these metallics draped from a classic metal rod blends beautifully with the latest colour trends.
  • Patterns: Instead of sticking with solid fabrics, look for ones in creative patterns. In more contemporary and transitional interiors the use of large-scale, geometric-patterned draperies creates a dramatic focal point within the space

Step #5: Accessories

Accessories include anything and everything from lamps, storage boxes, clocks, frames, and vases. It is advisable to remove all accessories until after you have put all your big stuff in the space (furniture, beddings, window treatments, and fabrics). You can then come back in and slowly add in your appropriate accessories. Tip: Sometimes when redecorating a bedroom or any space for that matter you may just find that less is more, be mindful not to overdo your accessories and trinkets.

Your bedroom should be your retreat, a sanctuary for peaceful reading, writing, and studying, as much as a resting place. Set fresh flowers on your nightstand to boost your mood and remember to make rest a priority in your bedroom redecorating.
