Whether you like light and airy designs, or rooms that are dark and cosy, you can turn your bedroom into a tranquil escape to relax and unwind in after a busy day. Soft furnishings, such as your bedding and curtains, can add warmth both practically and aesthetically to your room, and the colours and textures you choose to incorporate into the space can really help set the tone for your overall bedroom design scheme. Not sure where to begin? Check out our top five tips below to help get you inspired.
Peaceful, calm, bright – sounds pretty dreamy, doesn’t it? Turning your bedroom into a relaxing haven can not only help you unwind in the evening but will also make it that little bit easier to get up in the morning. Strip your room back to basics – white walls, clean crisp bedding, and just a few curated pieces on display to keep the space looking calm.
If a fresh white room feels too stark for you, then approach your bedroom design from a cosier angle. A colourful and patterned feature wall can really set the tone for your space, and if chosen well don’t need to overwhelm a room. The trick is to pick out one or two key colours from your wallpaper and use these throughout the space to create a cohesive scheme.
Plenty of plants
It's well-known plants help purify the air around us, and they can also help to create a soothing atmosphere making them ideal for a bedroom. Look at the light and temperature conditions before buying houseplants, you’ll likely need ones that are low-maintenance and don’t mind dark rooms such as a peace lily or snake plant.
Four poster beds
Looking for luxury? A four poster bed is the pinnacle of high-end design, and these days there are plenty of options for all design styles and budgets. This minimalist wooden design, for example, anchors the bed as the centrepiece of the room while still allowing natural light to flood the space. An oversized headboard can also help create the same hotel-luxe look.
While it is always best to have a clutter-free bedroom – tidy room means tidy mind, right? – surrounding yourself with your favourite things is bound to have a positive impact on your wellbeing. Pick out a few prints, mementos, and objets d'art to display on open shelves around your bedroom.
