The bedroom is that all-important place where we retire to after a long day and look to escape from all the stress of our lifestyles. Therefore there is nothing more important than ensuring our bedrooms are a comfortable and enjoyable environment to be in. after all, who wants to spend all their sleepy nights and waking hours in a room that looks like its been designed by our grandparents?
If your bedroom is crying out for a modern makeover then follow some of these tips and you’ll be well on your way to a stylish and relaxing room.
Colour Is Key
What colour or colours you decorate your room is really down to personal preference and therefore there isn’t really too much that you shouldn’t do. A lot of people enjoy having lighter cream colours in their bedrooms and this tends to make the furniture the focal point of the room, whilst others prefer more vibrant colours that add a warmth and depth to the room. One of the key things to avoid though is using colours that are too dark, they can make a room look uninviting and even a bit sinister and this is definitely not an environment you want to create for yourself or others.
Having the right lighting in your room can make all the difference in how it looks. It is never a good idea to rely solely on ceiling lighting and if possible you should always have adjustable lighting to help create the appropriate atmosphere. There is nothing worse than bedrooms with unflattering lighting! Lamps are a great way to add touches of style and alternative lighting options, the style you choose can help create a modern look that adds a lot of character to your room.
Nothing says modern like wooden flooring, whether it is laminate or one of the many other options available on the market right now. So do away with that old stained carpet and opt for a cleaner and fresher look on your floor. Laminate is a choice that is not only cheap but will add some style points, especially when teamed with a rug or two for added texture.
Choose The Right Furniture
Generally lighter coloured furniture is a better option than dark as it can make a room feel quite old fashioned. This isn’t to say you can’t go dark but just be wary of the material and style when doing so. Everyone should know that the bed is the focal point of the bedroom and therefore a lot of importance should be placed on its position and what type of frame you invest in. remember that bed sheets are the finishing touches to a stylish bed! Also a lot of us suffer from not having a headboard on our beds, although this gives us a lot of style options, it is also a bit of additional comfort when being sat up in bed and can greatly impact the look of a bedroom so it is a definite must.
