After a hard, tiring and demanding day’s work, it is important to come home to a place where you can rest with peace of mind to prepare you for the next day’s work. If you intend to enjoy such level of rest, it is imperative that the place you call home and especially your bedroom (a place dedicated to relaxing,) is so arranged and designed to help you get the best of rest through the night.
Many people suffer the effects of stress not necessarily because of how stressful their work or day went, but because when they get home, they don’t get enough rest and this in most cases is due to the fact that the bedroom is not decorated to be accommodating and offer the ambience for a soothing night’s rest.
How then does one decorate his/her bedroom (the most personal space in the home) in order to get maximum rest with peace of mind, you may ask?
Now, let us consider 7 tips to help you decorate your bedroom and enjoy it.
1. Choose Nice and Relaxing Beddings
This is probably the most important singular item in the bedroom. In fact, it is the reason the bedroom is so called, “BEDROOM.” Without the bed, the room is just another space that can be used for any other thing apart from sleeping in. So, what makes a good bed? Is it then design? Is it the size? Is it the texture? All of the features really are important in having a good bed. So, you must take all of these features and much more into consideration. Remember that sleep is the primary function of bed to you. As part of the bedding items are your bedspread or duvet. How cosy you prefer to feel will determine the thickness of your duvet and its colour.
2. Choose Your Colours Wisely
The importance of colours in our daily lives cannot be over-emphasised. Colours affect our minds and our moods, ultimately dictating our actions. To this extent, the colours used in the bedroom must be carefully chosen. It should be those colours that help the mind to relax and prepare the body to rest. Not all colours fit into this picture. Apart from that, you also might want to use colours that naturally appeal to you as a person. Generally, colours like navy blue, beige, brown, green, and lavender and so on are good for painting the bedroom. However, personal preference also matters.
3. Hang Inspirational Pictures on the Wall
As seemingly unimportant as this may sound, it is however necessary to have inspirational items as part of your room décor. This is because it can help set your mood in the right frame for each day. You should have such items around the room, on the wall, beside the bed or in some other conspicuous spaces in the room. These items could be frames of great men and heroes you respect. Quotations that have inspired you in time past and mean a lot to you. They could even be other works of art, paintings and so on.
4. Well-Designed Furniture Setting
Every bedroom sure needs some furniture to complement it. Book shelf, Cupboard, wardrobe, and so on. They must all be carefully designed and positioned in the room to allow for space. The colours used for the furniture too must blend well with the general colour used for painting the room. Although, most furniture come with the brown colour, they can be repainted to depict what one has in mind or wants.
5. Choose Cool Coloured Lights
What does lightening mean to you? How do you think light should be used in the room? This is the icing on the cake, as far as room décor is concerned. The light(s) should not be too bright, rather they should be dim. And today, there are different shades of light that can be used to blend with the general decoration desired for the bedroom. In most cases the blue light is preferred because it naturally sets the mood for good romance.
6. Choose a Light Coloured Cotton
First off, it is imperative to state that light coloured blinds and valance to a large extent help in the ambience of the room. This is because it lets some ray of natural light into the room, as well as let in some natural air. Choosing dark coloured cottons makes the room dull and unrelaxing because of the darkness and the stuffiness it causes. So, when next you want to deal with the interior of your room, be sure your cotton is light coloured so as to create a great effect.
7. Keep Furniture Minimal
It is called a bedroom because it is a place to relax, as such avoid too much furniture- like tables and chairs. There are some folks who lump all these things together in a bedroom; forgetting that cramming a room with too many property makes it lose its beauty. Do not make the mistake of having a study or library in the bedroom. This to a large extent may defeat the purpose of relaxation. You may consider having a separate room where you can build your library and study.
