A healthy life demands a sound sleep every day. A good bedroom is essential for a good sleep. So if we were to make a checklist of 10 essential interior designing ideas for a perfect bedroom what would that be?
1. COLOUR TRANSFORM YOUR BEDROOM
First and foremost try achieving a calming effect in your bedroom with a simple monochromatic colour. Studies show that warm colours physically affect us. They increase our heart rate, blood pressure, and even body temperature. Cool colours such as shades and tones of blue, gray and brown are ideal for bedrooms. Keep yellow and red as accent colours on pillows or in a piece of art in bedroom walls. As chemicals, you breathe while you sleep affect your health and wellbeing, be careful to use paints that are safe to health. Add textures and patterns to the décor with stone or wood coatings of various shades and finishes. Play with tones as well. If your bedroom is small, use lighter shades. Heavy shades make the space look crammed.
2. ACHIEVE DESIGN BALANCE
You can use the principle of balance in designing interiors of your bedroom. It is about distributing visual weight in a room. Symmetrical balance gives you a traditional interior, and asymmetrical balance makes a casual interior design. Bedroom can feature things you would like to be surrounded with, which reflect your personality. Also, personalize the room with family portraits and accessories you have a sentimental attachment with.
3. CREATE CONTRASTS IN THE ROOM
Contrasts add depth to your bedroom space. Painting the wall behind the head-post of your bed in a dark color creates an optical illusion and depth.
4. MAKE YOUR WALL DECORATIONS WORK
Cute frames, mirrors, and paintings can add style to your bedroom. Mirrors are used to make your room look bigger than it is. Bedroom walls can be adorned with abstract arts framed with basic frames. You may use sconces to create ambient lighting in the bedroom. Create a relaxing and comfortable feel and warmth in your bedroom with a light tone of wood that is suitable for your location.
5. GET YOUR WARDROBES FUNCTIONAL
These days you get multifunctional furniture. For example, you can incorporate a wardrobe behind a headboard. This way you can make the most of your space and leave the walls and floors free for more space in the room. You can also get custom-designed floating shelves or racks on one of the walls. Add LED lights to illuminate the shelves and you have a chic storage system in your bedroom.
6. THE DRAMA BEHIND THE CURTAINS
Framing windows with long curtains and drapes add glamour and personality to your room. Ask yourself the purpose your curtains are going to serve in a given room. Do you want a splash of colour in your room, or is it privacy or darkness or warmth? Or all of it? Lined panels control room temperature and the measure of light that filters through it into the room. Cotton lining allows some light to filter through whereas an insulating lining keeps your home warmer in winter and cooler in the summer. A blackout lining is ideal for a bedroom because it doesn’t allow any light filter through. Curtains take up a large amount of visual space and impact the overall look of the room. Ask for a swatch of fabrics to pick the right colour and texture of your choice. Bring them into your home and hold them up against sofas, pillows, and walls to check how they would look. Tape swatches to the wall and live with it for a while before making a final decision.
Curtains should be at least double the width of the window. They should also be long enough. When you allow them to puddle on the floor, it gives your room an elegant look. Let them skim the floor. Short curtains look great when they brush window sill. Just in case you are buying readymade panels, buy them long and have them hemmed.
Make sure that curtain rods and finials match the fabric. They should also match other home interior design elements in the room too. Large decorative rods look good with heavy drapes while light silks and sheers go with light rods.
Cotton is versatile and easy to clean. Velvet is a bit heavy for some rooms. Sheers are light and graceful but don’t offer much in the way of privacy.
7. POSITION OF YOUR BED
Do not position your bed in a corner adjacent to the doorway. The ideal position would be a corner diagonal away from the door. See that the headboard comes against one of the walls so that you can people entering the bedroom.
8. MAKE USE OF YOUR WALL AREA
The wall area over your bed is a space that can add to the bedroom ambience significantly. It is typically a large and empty wall area. You can paint or wallpaper the area with vibrant colour of your choice. Other options include hanging a patterned rug in the area or wall mural, or a gallery or a room divider or paper lanterns or wooden panelling.
9. FURNITURE CHOICES
Bedroom is where you create space for dressers, nightstands, TVs, Chairs, and desk as well.
10. BEDROOM LOCATION
Locating your bedroom at the corner of your home gives you provision for windows on two or more adjacent walls. As a result, you get cross ventilation that lets softer natural light in. A layout that gives you a view of the vistas around you such a lake in your area or just your beautiful backyard can dramatically add a dash of elegance to your bedroom.
