Although most people spend only their sleeping hours in their bedroom, design choice still matters. Your master bedroom shouldn’t just be a relaxing retreat, but also a reflection of your personality and leisure style. Several factors determine your bedroom’s design, including the amount of space you have to work with, the type of style you want, your ideal layout and how much you’re willing to invest.
What to Consider When Updating Your Bedroom
Before you begin planning your design, you have to take your ideal layout into account and how your bedroom’s space can support it. Do you want to add an opulent vanity? Consider your bed size, the vanity’s placement, how big the vanity is, what type of seat you want for it and more. Creating an ideal layout, including measuring space yourself, can help you narrow down a style and design.
The style of your bedroom matters, as it can affect your mood and disposition, especially during the crucial times you need to fall asleep and wake. Use soothing colors and stray from harsh pops of color. Bold pops of color can energize you, which is great for when you want to wake, but not so much when you’re trying to wind down and fall asleep. For design, try to use a style that matches the overall décor of your living room, guest rooms, and kitchen. It’s ok to stray from your home’s overall design, but try to keep the theme uniform. Don’t be afraid to indulge though. If you feel comfy under a beautiful canopy bed, go for it!
Fitting everything you want into your bedroom isn’t always feasible. Measure dimensions of your room and use existing furniture, like your current bed frame, mattress and end tables, to determine measurements your room can handle. When searching for new furniture and features, whether in person or online, measure the ones you want and compare it to the measurements you took.
Type of Investment
Upgrading your bedroom can be expensive, so take stock of what you want and what you actually need to narrow down your search and keep your budget in line. This tactic also allows you to put more of your budget toward bigger, better items that you actually need and want, like an antique dresser or that California King-size bed you’ve always wanted.
Also, consider dual function items to get more of what you want but in an affordable manner. Dual vanity dressers can be great for storing clothes and linens while still providing a traditional vanity setting. Budget wisely and think out-of-the-box and you can achieve your original vision while still remaining under budget.
