The very moment the clock in the office corridor strikes 5, the wearisome, ambitious employee darts home, takes a moment to unlock the door, and then the sapped body collapses on the comfy bed. Pretty sure it’s the same story with you!
Now, why do our fatigued bodies seek the comfort of the bedroom and not the drawing room? Well, it’s simply because bedrooms have the power to rejuvenate us, tranquilize the chaotic mind, and lull our bodies to sleep.
And where do we relax with our favorite song or read a book? Bedroom, again! It’s really like the cocoon which envelopes us from the helter-skelter of the macrocosmic world.
And that’s exactly why we need to prioritize the décor of our bedroom. Like the rest of the home, our personal quarters also deserve that special touch. After all, it expresses our soul’s vibe! On that note, check out these super cool ideas to turn your bedroom into a bigger, inanimate version of yourself.
#1 – Pick your style
The very first step is picking out your own style. While some might have already imagined their dream bedroom, others might not. To begin with, carve out a stipulated time from your daily routine for researching. Read blogs on home décor, follow the right bloggers on social media, leaf through magazines, watch YouTube videos and (nope, we didn’t forget it) take the help of Pinterest and pin the bedrooms you like.
Now that you’ve jotted down something, go old school and create a mood-board. We can’t stress enough how helpful it is! You can go mix-n-match, monochromatic, contrasting or simply anything that your heart resonates with! Remember, the idea is to express yourself.
#2 – No cramming of the bedroom with fussy furniture!
Something that comes right after figuring out your style is – choosing the right furniture. Often, people visit a furniture store and randomly pick out any furniture they like. But that’s absolutely wrong!
The smart way to find out what works is by drawing a floorplan of your room and listing out your preferred furniture. Considering the size, finalize the items that perfectly fit your room. Yes, the bed is the most dominant piece in the room, but don’t make the mistake of choosing a large and heavy bed that takes away the maximum space.
You can go for an upholstered headboard to incorporate funk into your room, a sliding wardrobe to give it a posh touch, a hanging or seated lounge chair or vintage armchair if you’ve got additional space.
#3 – Light up your li’l world
Another influential feature in your bedroom is the lighting. However, this area too needs special focus; else you can easily end up turning your room into a film studio or a cemetery! The first and foremost thing that one needs to find out is – the ways in which you’d use a particular corner in your room.
For instance, while ambient lighting can light up the entire room, a bedside light can aid in your reading while accent lights can light up your walls subtly. Once you’re done planning and picking, ask your electrician to install separate on/off switches and adjustable dimmers with each light.
Wrapping it up
Decking up your dream bedroom is quite a task; indeed, having a methodical approach really helps. With that, avail these super cool tips and soon you can relax in your own little world away from worldly woes!
