Transforming your bedroom can be something of an arduous task. We all seem to store a lot of things within the confines of our bedroom.
As a result of this, our sleeping space can look cluttered and disorganised. It is time for you to reclaim your sanctuary! If you are looking for divine inspiration when it comes to redecorating your bedroom, you are in the right place.
Decorating your sleeping space can be an ordeal. Take a deep breath. Read on. Conquer your bedroom:
Organisation is Critical
Your room should be a clutter free sanctuary from the world. If your bedroom is anything but this, then you need to start organising the space around you. Empty drawers and wardrobes and clear the clutter. Sort out your clothes and anything that you no longer wear. Be ruthless. Your bedroom is a space to relax in. It should not be treated like a store cupboard.
There are many ways that you can organise yourself. Buying simple tubs and containers can keep your room organised. You can also purchase organisational furniture. Shoe racks, wardrobe tidy’s and so forth are the perfect way to keep your sanctuary organised and serene.
Aside from the fact that having an organised room will make you feel better, you will also be able to find your things! No longer will you have to rush around pre-work wondering where your other shoe is.
You Don’t Have to Spend a Fortune
Being frugal is fashionable. You don’t have to spend a great deal of money to have nice things in your newly organised bedroom. You can be thrifty, and upstyle your existing furniture, or you can splash out and buy new. Whatever you choose to do ensure that you buy pieces of furniture that you love.
If you are going to splash the cash on new furniture, ensure that you buy quality furniture that is built to last. Take a look at The Sofa & Chair Company for inspiration.
If you are keen to get new furniture in your funky new room, you may want to consider your options.
There are some great pieces of furniture that are bang on trend. Think about whether you want classic looking furniture or if you favour modern styles.
Opting for classic white furniture will ensure that your bedroom looks nothing short of lovely. Black furniture, on the other hand, is perfect for those that want a fresh, sophisticated edge. Whatever you choose, ensure that it is good quality so that you do not have to replace it regularly. Your room should be built to last.
There are no hard and fast rules when it comes to decorating your home. While many interior designers may recoil at the thought of this, you don’t have any rules at all. Many people advise you to have matching furniture. Why? They like rooms to look organised and consistent. However, having mismatched furniture in different styles can look wonderfully elegant. The key is to keep the wood of a similar tone, and the fabrics should be of a similar design so that the room does not look messy. You want it to look presentable and effortless, but this does not mean that you have to adopt an uniform look.
Let’s be honest, sticking to an uniform is boring. Go wild with design and inspiration. Your furniture should not just be functional and practical; it should be an extension of your own fabulous style.
If you have decided to transform your room with paper and paint, you will find a great deal of inspiration online or in the local DIY stores. Hotly tipped trends for autumn 2014 include dusky blues, rich reds and mustard yellows. These colours look perfect in large, airy bedrooms. You can paint a feature wall or incorporate it into wallpaper. The world of interior design is your oyster.
Adopting dusky blues, reds and yellows can be tricky. To make the room look organised and effortless, you may want to implement complimenting, yet contrasting colours. You should endeavour to decorate using candles, throws, cushions and art. There are some great pieces of bespoke art that you can have in your home. It doesn’t have to cost the earth. You can scour charity shops and the like to ensure that you find a great deal at a fraction of the price.
If you have a smaller bedroom, it may be worthwhile to keep the walls neutral and adorn your room with accessories in these colours. This will ensure that your room is bang on trend but doesn’t look overbearing.
When you are decorating think about your likes and passions. As this is your room, you may want to adorn it with the things that you love. If you are an avid bicycle rider, for example, you could incorporate elements of bikes into your bedroom. A bicycle bell ornament would look super sweet and very twee. After all, this is your space that is just for you. Making it personal to you will ensure that you enjoy spending time in your bedroom. The quirkier, the better. Your room doesn’t have to be akin to a showroom. It is your space to unwind. Your bedroom is your place to retreat to.
A few weeks ago we hired some top residential painters to come in and do some decorating for us in our dining room and kitchen. We are a big fan of getting professionals in to do the trickier rooms. Spilling paint all over our posh new cooker is not an option!

We all live busy and stressful lives. You need to have a place that is just for you. This must be your bedroom. This is so that you can sleep, unwind and recuperate from the day. Make sure that your bedroom is a space that you love to be in.
