bedroom-furniture-suiteBedroom Furniture and Decor: How to Design a Bedroom

Before choosing your bedroom furniture, you should first find out how to design a bedroom rather than just fill it full of the best looking furniture you can find. Your bedroom should be your sanctuary – somewhere you can go to when you want a rest from all the worries and stresses of everyday life.

But even if you are too busy for that, you should at least make it a nice place to be in – even busy people spend more time in the bedroom than in any other room in the average home. So before jumping at all that great bedroom furniture you see in the shopping malls or online, take a little time to think of how to design a bedroom that you will feel comfortable in.

Your bedroom is not a living room or dining room where you feel you have to impress visitors – it is a place for you, and you have no need to impress yourself so make it for you and nobody else – except your partner of course! Here are a few tips you help you:

Just like a well-planned living room, your bedroom works best with a focal point. That takes very little thought – it is the bed! You will spend almost 1/3 of your life in your bed, so take your time in choosing it. Your bed should be big enough for you and your partner, if you have one, without being so big that it totally dominates the room and makes it look small.

Neither should it be too small, where you and your partner cannot get your own sleeping space without disturbing each other. A bedroom should be big enough to allow a good king size bed without it looking too large for the room. Choose a style you like: whether it is slatted, is of a sleigh bed design or even if it has a large fancy headboard with all the bells and whistles makes no difference if it’s what you really want.


Tips for Interior Bedroom Design

Besides the kitchen, interior bedroom design is the most popular room to design in the family home. The bedroom should be cozy and restful in its appearance. Bright colors are not recommended because they are not calming. Colors best suited for bedrooms are warm and neutral colors.

To start your interior bedroom design plan you should choose the fabrics first along with the base wall color. One the fabric and color is selected then you can select the furniture that matches. For wall coverings, you do not need to purchase expensive artwork. If you or someone you know is a photographer then choose some unique photos to cover the walls. If you or someone you know is an artist then maybe you can hang some of their artwork in a nice frame. Now you will have wall hangings that no one else will have.

21_DSC5485When doing your interior bedroom design the flooring in bedrooms should never be tile, marble or granite. Use wood or carpet for bedrooms, you do not want an ice-cold floor in the morning. Carpet would be the warmest but wood is also a popular choice for bedroom flooring. To avoid clutter in the bedroom try extra cabinets or storage spaces in the bedroom. If the closet is big enough, put some extra storage or shelving in the closet.


Bedroom Design Tips for Kids

childs-bedroom-designKid’s Bedrooms They Can Grow Up With

When I approach designing a kid’s bedroom, or any room for that matter, I think long-term. I think no matter what your budget is, if you are spending money that investment should last longer than a few years.

You can avoid the costly redecorating of your child’s room with a few simple design tips.

When I design a kid’s bedroom I make sure that they can grow up with it and not need to redecorate ever few years. For this reason I stay away from cutesy themes.

If your child is absolutely not going to live without “My Little Pony” on her bedroom walls there are great wall decals which can be removed without damaging your walls when she out grows them. Simply peel them off when they are no longer “cool”. Decals are a great way to make a big impact without costing a lot and are super easy to change.

kids-bedroom-design-tipsStaying away from typical kid themes doesn’t mean a boring totally grown up room, either. It can have plenty of fun and style without being obvious and childish.

By using little fun accents you can add a lot of personality and easily be removed if they outgrow a look.

I recommend making the furniture classic wood finishes or painted white or black, this way a pink dresser doesn’t wind up on the curb. Accents that can get changed up as a child grows would be their comforter, artwork, and lighting.
