We spend one-third of our lives sleeping... snoozing in our bedrooms. After a tiring day or not-so-very busy weekends, there's nothing more that we look forward to than staying in!
Having a cozy place where you can unwind, relax, and recharge is crucial. And so is decorating your bedroom to achieve the vibes that fit exactly what you want and need! Not only will it help you sleep better, but a comfortable bedroom may also reflect your mood and state of mind. If you have a messy one, it will make you a lot less productive, and the energy is just off!
We know that there are many picture-perfect and aesthetically pleasing inspirations on the internet, but your personality and the kind of comfort that suits well on your skin must be your standard.
To save you from the guesswork, here are some tips to help you out in designing a cozy bedroom:
Be subtle with choosing colors.
Picking a color scheme or color palette to be an inspiration for the next steps is a great way to start. This will also save you lots of time as you have color combinations in mind to mix and match. Make sure that you choose colors that are warm to the eyes and something that appeals to you.
Visualize your bedroom furniture.
The idea of having it all in your bedroom seems nice, but does it look nice and neat? Does it look more balanced than cluttered? Did the colors of the furniture go well? Do you have everything that you NEED inside?
Every piece in your bedroom is what makes the bedroom itself. From the bed, pillow, vanity, nightstand, lamp, rugs, everything! It is important that you include what you really need before dwelling on what you just want to make it pleasing. If your place is small, you definitely do not want to bring in a chunky sofa.
Consider creating a bedroom floor plan before finalizing and purchasing your pieces of furniture!
Make things symmetrical.
A visually balanced place feels calming. You can achieve this by balancing the colors in your space, adding in some textures and patterns, leaving off some placed untouched, experimenting with the best place to put your furniture, distributing soft touches, and generally not overdoing or underdoing your designs. Find a way to go to your dream bedroom without compromising how it feels and looks.
Create good lighting.
Lighting is an important part of your bedroom, especially if you opt to use it as a space for work, if you love reading, or a picture savvy! So you need to initially think about how you would like to use each area of your bedroom. If you have allotted rooms in your house for work and other stuff and you solely use your bedroom for lodging, go for dim, warmer tones of lighting
On the other hand, cool lighting contains more blue light, which is brighter, thus essentially helpful to keep you awake.
There are also a variety of light sources you can choose from depending on how much you are willing to spend. If you are on a budget, go from color-switching LED lights that will allow you to switch from warm to cool and vice versa.
Hang some artwork.
You don't want to put much on your walls, but a couple of cute and matchy pieces of accent artwork won't hurt! Tailor-fit it to the color of your walls and frames if there are any. Give your space a little love!
Your dream bedroom look, regardless of the size, can happen! With so many ideas online, and stuff that makes it easier to fit what you need in your space, there are many potentials to seize. It only takes some research and creativity to bring out the best from what you have. After all, you deserve a cozy sanctuary and a good night's sleep!
