The Beginners Guide to Bedroom Decorating

Bedrooms can be difficult to decorate. They need to reflect you as a person, be a quiet and tranquil place where you can relax and unwind, and fit in with the overall style, which can be quite difficult to achieve. This is made particularly hard when you can’t even decide what you like. Here are our tips for your ideal bedroom.

Mixing it up when it comes to your design for your bedroom. You could contrast masculine and feminine styles, old and modern, and use different patterns in similar colours to add depth and intrigue to your bedroom.
Dark colours will create a rich, sumptuous atmosphere and a luxurious feel, whereas bright colours will add character to a plain white room and will instantly inject colour into any room.
Create a feature wall with patterned wallpaper and a big gilt mirror. The wallpaper needn’t be expensive, as there are stores like Wallpaper Sales that have a vast array of beautiful designs that don’t cost the earth.

Soft Furnishings
If you’re renting, but you still want to add your own personality to your bedroom, then the soft furnishings are the best and easiest way to make a difference to a drab room. Pop a deep pile rug next to the bed and enjoy the feel of softness underfoot in the morning when you get up. Layer throws on your bed and a few cushions to add personality, and hang heavy curtains to make sure you block out light and make it feel cozsy too.  

The Practical Bit
Always buy the biggest bed that you can for the room that you have. Comfort in your bedroom is the ultimate priority, and having a big bed ensures comfort whether you’re sharing it or not. Take a look at the beds from Metal Beds Ltd for some lovely examples.
The lighting for your bedroom is really important. Unless you do your make up in there, you don’t really need strong task lighting. Instead, lots of different types of lighting will make sure that you can use the room in whatever way takes your mood.
Your bed linen is a great way to add character. Pattern and texture adds interest and a sense of comfort and layers on your bed makes for a luxurious bedroom experience.

Don’t forget your bedroom storage either. An essential part of every bedroom, you should aim for ample storage. If your bedroom is small, opt for multifunctional storage to maximize space.
