5 Tips to Curate Your Bedroom Design

Bedrooms are a place of tranquility. However, it can cause anxiety for some homeowners. Maybe you have moved into a new house or are stuck trying to find the perfect way to curate your dream bedroom design. Give yourself the opportunity now to transform your space. We have five tips to makeover your bedroom as this space greatly impacts your waking life!

1. Simple is Ideal

A good portion of the time you spend in your bedroom, you will most likely be asleep. When you’re awake, you don’t want to be stressed out by the unneeded items in this room. This is why keeping it simple matters. As you look around your space, you may see a work-from-home desk covered in papers, a chair that doubles as a coat rack, or a stationary bike that takes up valuable real estate. Beyond the items that have an intentional function, put it away. Organization and finding a new home for unneeded items is a must.

2. Create Movement 

The size of your bedroom doesn’t matter. What does matter is creating a space that is easy to walk around. Ensure that walkways are open. For instance, have a clear path to the closet, en suite bathroom, and dressers. Since the biggest item in the room is the bed, place it away from the door to capitalize on the available space.

3. Customize the Windows 

Having sunshine come through the windows in your bedroom is a beautiful thing. Unless it is earlier than you want. Bedroom windows need both privacy and light control to establish the perfect sleeping environment. You know your sleeping habits and your space the best. Therefore, you’ll know if room darkening or blackout shades are needed for your bedroom design.

Most of us are creatures of habit. If you fall into this category, smart shades may be the best choice for you. You can schedule the room darkening shades to rise or lower during certain times of the day. It can stay closed until you wake up, open throughout the day and then close once it gets dark outside all without you having to do anything! 

4. Prepare Levels of Light

There is more to a bedroom than just sleeping. Perhaps you have a corner that would be perfect for a big chair, lamp, and a good book. Perhaps you love the idea of binge-watching your favorite shows in your bedroom or having phone calls with friends. Many activities take part throughout the day in this room. That is why it is important to have levels of lighting for each activity. Adding in a floor lamp, chandelier or sconces can have a big impact on your bedroom design. It allows you to tailor the look and feel of the space easily.

5. Add in Some Style 

Your bedroom deserves to have a relaxing, calm atmosphere. If you don’t know where to start, consider gathering inspirational photos. You could have stumbled across a beautiful bedspread, loved the idea of a bold color on the walls, or a feature wall that will make your guests say, “Wow!” But not all of the design choices you make have to be at eye level. An area rug can effortlessly take your style to the next level while simultaneously living your mood and giving you the tranquility you want and need.
