A dream bedroom not only looks fabulous but is also a comfortable, inviting and relaxing space in your home. For some of us, our bedrooms are our very own nirvana, a place that allows us to truly unwind and do the things we love.
A lot of factors are taken into consideration when designing a dream bedroom and it’s not usually something that happens in just a few hours.
Decorating themes are often a popular option for bedroom designs, especially thanks to Pinterest. However, it is a huge challenge to pull off a themed room successfully as it can soon transform from an amazing, personal space to something that is far too cluttered to enjoy.
So, before you create your own take on a nautical, French country or minimalist theme, it is advisable to get in touch with some interior design experts.
If you want to make a few simple changes then check out our bedroom interior design tips below. But if you want to make a splash with a huge transformation, get in touch with our team today to organise your free design and plan consultation.
1: Colour Yourself Dreamy
Since a bedroom is a very personal space, you might be tempted to express your personality with bright, vibrant colours. However, before you splash the walls with outrageously bright colours, consider the fact that bright colours are often stimulating and can have an effect on the quality of your sleep. If you want to get some decent shut-eye in your bedroom, it might be worth considering a colour scheme that is a little less ‘out there’.
A good idea is to opt for softer blues and greens or layers of whites and creams. These delicate hues will help you to relax at the end of a busy day and you can leave the bold colours for your furniture.
2: Light the Way
For a night of restful sleep, you need rest-worthy lighting. A harsh overhead glare is not something you need in your bedroom and if you’re into reading before bed, you might find yourself with a constant headache with this sort of lighting.
With that in mind, it is worth opting for a central light fixture on your ceiling and placing lamps next to your bed. The softer glow helps in creating a relaxing atmosphere, while the lamps help you add a splash of colour or pattern without overwhelming the room.
3: Boost Indoor Air Quality
Having the correct indoor air quality is essential for getting a night of good quality sleep. By installing an efficient temperature and air quality control system, you will be able to use your thermostat for setting the optimal temperature for sleeping every single night, regardless of the weather outside.
Furthermore, you can also set the thermostat to heat or cool the room whenever necessary, thus, in turn, saving a considerable amount of energy and money.
4: Put Your Feet First
In your dream room, when you swing your feet off your bed each morning, do they land on a soft and welcoming surface or are they touching a cold floor?
You can splurge on an extravagant area rug that covers the flooring around your bed or if you want to go all out, you can get the entire room fitted with a thick, deluxe carpet so that your feet are perfectly warm and snug wherever you go in your bedroom.
5: Make a Statement
If you want to express your personality in your bedroom with something a little unconventional, we always advise that the best approach is to use a single statement piece. Keep the majority of your bedroom low-key to ensure a calming effect, then inject a little personality with a large wall mounted headboard or luxurious four-poster bed.
