Bedrooms are a safe haven, a place to retire for the sweet reward of rest.
Where as a drab bedroom, decorated without thought, is an uninspiring place to retire to at the end of the day. A bedroom thoughtfully designed on the other hand, can contribute largely to a better nights sleep and greater relaxation.
If you’re considering a bedroom makeover, a décor overhaul isn’t absolutely necessary to make your interior design dreams come true.
Here, we list a few ideas which answer the question – If I could entirely redecorate my bedroom with a single change, what would it be?
Much time spent in the bedroom is with the lights out, but what about the moments when ambience is more important or when you’re preparing for an important day? By finding the perfect balance between lights too soft and too harsh, you can create an ideal environment to relax and get ready for that important date.
Don’t forget your fixtures—it’s not just the light bulb itself that can make a difference. Get creative with the way you display your bulbs. Recessed lighting, fairy lights, lamps to match your bedroom’s theme, or even chandeliers, can be great options to achieve drastically different moods.
While plush, comfortable, and commonly found in the bedroom, carpet isn’t always the best option for those hoping to increase their bedroom’s appeal. Hardwood floors are becoming a more popular choice, but other options are available for the more adventurous.
Vinyl flooring, for example, provides enough flexibility to make any design vision an attainable goal. With various product ranges such as Karndean Art Select, Karndean Opus, and Karndean Korlok at your disposal, utilising this material as a tile, marble or hardwood alternative is one of the best ways to transform a bedroom in need of a redesign.
If you’re still hesitant to let go of softer materials entirely, achieve the best of both worlds with plush rugs which can add an extra dimension to your vinyl or wooden flooring.
It likely comes as little surprise that changing up the centrepiece of your bedroom – the bed – can have a massive influence on the way your bedroom impresses you and your guests alike. However, we’re not only talking about upgrading your mattress or picking up a new set of sheets.
Bed frames can be simple or complex, subtle or commanding attention. While you don’t necessarily need to place a canopied bed in the middle of your room or employ a tall, heavy headboard, these types of structures can make for powerful statement pieces.
If you prefer a simpler approach, consider a bed frame made out of wrought iron or wood, where details and craftsmanship can make a subtle but tasteful impression.
Of course, there are plenty of other smaller, singular changes that can transform your bedroom. If you’re on a budget or hoping for more instant results, try a few less obtrusive adjustments – hanging art on the walls, installing a few empty shelves to organise your keepsakes, or bringing plant life into your bedroom.
Combine these ideas with any of the above, and you’ll be on your way to a bedroom that will impress even the most dedicated interior design experts.
