Moving into a new house is an exciting an adventure. Arranging the new bedroom in the house is a whole different ball game or maybe you want to change up the style of your current bedroom. Regardless of what it is, one of the main areas of any house is the bedroom. It is the room that should display the owners and occupants’ personalities and unique styles. Decorating the bedroom in just the right way may not always be the easiest thing to do. But do not fret! Here are a few tips on how you can decorate your bedroom:

1. Choose the Right Colour

Subtle colours are the best option for any bedroom. Choose a peaceful set of colour palettes instead of a bolder hue as your bedroom is supposed to be a place of comfort and rest. Some of the best colours to use on bedrooms are topaz, browns or mauve with a mixture of other subtle colours that match well together to create the perfect colour combo.

2. Decide on your Personal Style

Bringing your own unique style into the bedroom is crucial. After all it is YOUR bedroom and YOU are the one that will be spending time in it. You can get on Pinterest for some style inspiration. You could also add in a few of your favourite things into the room.

For instance, if you are a book lover a mini book shelf is ideal for you. You could put up some posters of your favourite band that go well with the design or buy artwork online that meshes with your style and tastes.

3. Finalize the Budget

This might be a tip you would like to ignore but is vital when coming to decorating your bedroom. Financial planning is a must because furniture is far from cheap. Setting a budget can help you decide on the essentials in the bedroom and the pieces that are not as important and can be skipped over.

For instance, the bed, pillows, sheets, dressers, cupboards and curtains are all mandatory components of a bedroom. However, a particular brand may be out of your reach in terms of pricing, do not be too picky and ensure to stick to the budget you have put in place.

4. Add Accents

Accent furniture include but are not limited to nightstands, lamps or a lounge chair in the bedroom. First assess the amount of space you have to accommodate any accent pieces into the bedroom and how those pieces function in the room.

5. Materials and Textures

Mixing up various patterns and textures is a way to bring creativity and contrast into the bedroom. This can include contrasting materials on your bed to the rugs on the floor and the wooden accent pieces in the room that bring everything together. Experiment with various textures and materials and see which one is best suited to your taste and the design of the room.

6. Lighting

Ensure to have many lighting options in your room. Layering the light in the room can give you a good feel of how the bedroom will look at night. For instance, smaller lamps on the dressing table can give you sufficient light for reading and accent lights can be used to illuminate the entire room! Let there be light!

Use these tips to design your dream bedroom and live your best life!
