The bedroom is one of the more important rooms in your home because it allows you to rest after a hard day of work and recover energy. For this reason, it is very important to know how to choose furniture to re-decorate the bedroom and achieve the desired functionality and coziness. The mattress, the lighting, the color of the walls – everything comes into play in re-decorating your existing bedroom into a more relaxing space.
Give Your Bedroom A Budget Makeover
A Perfect Bed And Its Setting
The bed is the centerpiece around which the whole re-decoration is going to be carried out. However, before you rush your purchase, calculate the space you will need to place a table on either side of the bed. Also, make sure you place the headboard at the side of the window, and never behind or in front. This way the light will never bother you. Make sure your bed is sufficiently distanced from the attached toilet to prevent undesirable odors and sounds.
The color is essential in re-decorating a bedroom. When painting the walls, choose light, soft and warm colors for the walls. A few good options are beige, turquoise, pale yellow and light green. You should avoid garish vibrant colors such as red and orange because they make the room atmosphere less relaxing. In fact, such gaudy bright colors also make the room appear less spacious. Make sure the wall paint is done in accordance with the décor of the room.
Install A Wardrobe
The functionality of a bedroom is assured if you have a good wardrobe for storing clothes. A wardrobe is very practical, especially because it doesn’t take up any room space. If you have room enough, you can incorporate separate space for books, shoes and other items as well. Take accurate measurements of the room in order to best exploit the available space. You can also have a mirror installed on the wardrobe to add to its functionality and create a space illusion.
Artificial Lighting Appliances
Artificial lighting for your bedroom is just as important as natural lighting. A lighting appliance on the ceiling is perfect for illuminating the room quickly. Also, to create a more intimate atmosphere, you can use lamps or displays with fluorescent backlight on one or either side of the room. According to your budget, you could also install lights inside the cabinets and ground-level lights to signal the way to the bathroom.
Curtains And Blinds
Curtains and blinds are not only a cheaper way to redecorate the bedroom but they also arrest adequate attention changing the overall look of the room. The light fabrics, either plain or with subtle prints to match the bedding, are always a safe bet. Light-colored blinds made of cotton or linen can provide a more spacious feel to the room. Do not let the curtains hang too low and certainly not at the ground-level.
Your bedroom is your refuge at the end of a day. These tips will ensure that the re-decoration of your room is done well within your budget.
