The only room in your home where you should be able to relax and sleep is your bedroom. But for many people, the bedroom is a multipurpose area, serving as a TV room and children’s playroom. It is time to reclaim your space and create the refuge you deserve.
Regardless of the size of your house, there is always another place in the house for children to play. Many families create gathering spaces in the living room and kitchen. But your family shouldn’t have an open door policy for your bedroom.
It is the parents’ room that we refer to here. Young children and teenagers can go to their own rooms for some privacy. The parents’ private space should not automatically be considered an open game for everyone else in the house. Those days are gone. So get ready to enjoy your wonderful new sanctuary!
First, select a wall color that you find relaxing.
If you prefer orange, choose a muted pumpkin or pumpkin color. The goal is to achieve a sense of peace and serenity when you enter the room, so choose a softer shade of your favorite color. If you want, you can use darker accent colors to add a little spice to the look of the room. Better to stick with a versatile color that matches other features in the room.
Base all other colors in the room on the wall color. Bedding should be a neutral shade so it doesn’t collide with the walls. It’s so much easier to change bedding than to repaint the walls! You will make changes at some point, of course, but you will make initial design decisions with the idea that the wall color is permanent and almost everything else in the room can be redone.
You need a bed for an adult.
Your tastes change as you get older. The main considerations for a bed are comfort and suitability for you and your partner. When you were a kid, a canopy bed was a dream, but grown men don’t find them too interesting.
Find the right size bed, one that doesn’t dominate the room. Instead of a large, showy four-poster bed, a wooden sleigh bed can take up less space. Usually the bed stays in the room for quite some time, so make sure you get one that is the right height.
The general rule of thumb is simplicity.
To keep the theme of serenity, keep your bedroom furniture to a minimum. All you really need are nightstands on either side of the bed and a dresser. Both you and your partner can store their clothes on the dresser. Everything else can go to the closet. If that doesn’t give you enough space, look for a closet that tastefully accentuates the room.
A bedroom should offer plenty of room to move around. As soon as you open the door, you should feel the clear atmosphere, reflecting your clear mind. The rest of the house can be used to store papers, toys and other unnecessary items; keep them out of the bedroom.
Arrange lamps around the room instead of using overhead lighting. Lamps have a special intimate quality, and they won’t shine bright enough to wake your partner up when you want to read.
As you can see, you should consider your bedroom as a place of escape. These decorating tips can help you turn your bedroom into a sanctuary of peace where trouble can’t enter.
