Getting the new look of your bedroom right first time is vital if you want to minimise stress and make it affordable. With this in mind, it is always recommended that you plan out your new layout before you start to make sure that you make fewer mistakes and ensure you end up with something you love. This guide will take you through the simple steps you should follow if you want to create your dream bedroom layout.
Pretty much the most important piece of furniture in your bedroom, your bed, is the first thing you should decide on when laying out your new look. Depending on the size of your room, you will need to think about how much space you have to play with and what kind of style you’re going for. A decorative bed frame in metal or wood can be a wonderful feature in your bedroom and the space underneath gives you extra storage space. If you want the storage but prefer not to see it, you can go for a divan with under-bed storage drawers instead.
Second most important item on your list is the colour scheme. Each room will require a different one, depending on its size, shape and window-style, and so you need to choose carefully. Smaller rooms with restricted light coming in look better in yellows, pale blues and whites, while larger rooms can get away with bolder colours like red and dark green. You can create a stylish look simply by creating a feature wall, preferably where your bed is going to go. Pick patterned wallpaper that you love and cover one wall. Then pick out a single colour from that wallpaper for the other three walls.
Basically you have two options when it comes to picking out your perfect bedroom furniture; fitted or free-standing. The benefits of fitted is that you can save space and still get all the storage you need, which saves time and money. The downside is that it can look quite uniformed and you can lose the character of your room. Free-standing furniture allows you to be more creative with your choices and pick and choose the pieces you want, but it also means you can’t tailor your furniture to your specific needs. You can find the latest bedroom offers online and this means you can search through many different styles and shapes all in one go.
Like accessorising your clothes, less is more. Don’t overwhelm your new look with too many accessories, or your bedroom could end up looking cluttered and messy rather than vintage or chic. Instead, pick one or two things you really like, like a pair of cushions and a decorative wall hanging, and then build up slowly around them. Mirrors are also a great central accessory to start with – not only can they set the tone for your style but, strategically placed, can reflect more light back into your bedroom and make it look bigger.
