The bedroom is one of the most important parts of a house. We spend a significant amount of time in our bedrooms, both asleep and awake and hold some of our most prized possessions as well as some of darkest secrets and hidden dreams. Behind the locked doors of our bedroom is where we are truly ourselves. From the time you are a child to when you are an adult, the bedroom becomes one’s private space and the space in which we are most comfortable in. For these same reasons, when decorating a bedroom, there are certain elements to consider. Here are a few.
Picking out furniture
Obviously the bed is the primary piece of furniture in a bedroom. However, there are other staple and not so staple items of furniture which we choose to have in our bedrooms. These include dressing tables, writing tables, armchairs, couches, TVs, stools etc. Depending on the space available you can stuff the room with anything you like. However, it is always best to leave the furniture at a minimum. Even the few elements of furniture, especially if within a limited space, should be simple items with simply ordained upholstered headboards rather than heavily adorned
And carved upholstered headboards. A few small pieces of furniture which are most essential and preferably having multiple functions are best for apartment living. Also, do not waste a lot of space on large closets if you do not have the room. Sticking to a sturdy wardrobe or a chest of drawers may be a better option.
Depending on our personal tastes, the color palette of a room may change. However, if it is a relaxing bedroom that you need, studies have shown that a blue or green hue are better than others to relax a person’s mind. Similarly, a deep red or brick red will create a cozier more sensual atmosphere. It is best to avoid completely dark colors such as a black room. Rather, have a feature wall where one out of the four walls are a certain dark or bright color of your choice and the others are painted in a more subdued hue. Having beautiful wallpapers are also a very good option. If you are going for a printed pattern, stick to ones with a horizontal design. Vertical and diagonal lines create a more dynamic atmosphere in a room and for a bedroom, the horizontal lines may be more relaxing.
Also, when picking out lighting options, try to find shading devices that block the direct glare of the bulb and create a more subdued atmosphere to the room. Having niche lights and small recessed lamps on the ceiling are ideal.
