Top tips for decorating your bedroom
Of all the rooms in your house, it is your bedroom that most needs to serve the purpose of being your own personal haven. Other rooms are for cooking, dining, working and entertaining while your bedroom is the one place where you can always get away from it all and indulge your own aesthetic tastes, interests and preferences. Despite striving for a unique element to your bedroom, there are uniform hints and tips when it comes to designing and decorating that can be applied.
Of course, one of the most important factors when it comes to decorating your bedroom is your choice of colour. In the bedroom, the colour trends are all about creating a personal environment that expresses and reflects your innermost desires. Your room is your personal retreat where you can rest and rejuvenate, therefore the colour choice is yours and yours alone.
Neutral colours and hues, such as the medium to dark brown range, have always been popular as they evoke feelings of comfort and nurturing. The combination of green and brown is also a popular modern trend, largely because of its connotations of warmth and cosiness. It's important, however, to get the shades right. Any greens used should be fresh and light, rather than deep and saturated. Red is another popular choice, in large part due to its vibrant suggestions of passion and life. However, too much can be both overpowering and headache-inducing.
Once you've decided on a colour scheme, it's time to turn your attention to what is in the room itself. The main item of furniture is, of course, the bed itself. Beds can be adapted to your personality perhaps more readily than any other piece of furniture in the entire house; the headboard is just one facet that can be altered to inject an added wow factor. Streamlined shelving can allow you extra storage space and ensure your favourite bedtime reading is always within easy reach.
Alternatively, a wall-length headboard with some choice decorative accessories can be used to make the bed a focal point, as can a large canvas or other piece of art. Another option is to change the flow of a room with colour schemes and splashes to create a distinctively unique feel, ensuring your bedroom is stylish while unlike any other.
For the final finishing touch, look no further then the perfect bedspread. The right choice can and will transform any bedroom. Whether you opt for a traditional patchwork effect, a simple plain design or an intricate pattern, your decision has the power to either make or break when it comes to first impressions of your bedroom.
When examining bedspreads, always look to buy quality. Ideally, you want something that has been hand-stitched and quilted in 100 per cent cotton. Excellent value for money can be found providing you take the time to research and look around. The best bedspreads are, quite simply, a joy to curl up under during the cold winter months. The only problems arise when the alarm goes off and you don't want to leave your luxurious cocoon!
Your bedspread can be coordinated with matching linen, curtains and a whole range of other bedroom accessories to ensure your room is consistently stylish from top to bottom. Such accessories include bedside lamps, whose shades can match the colour scheme used throughout the rest of the bedroom. Dimmer switches are another installation worth considering as they can help dictate and alter the mood, atmosphere and general feel of your room.
