3596 Bedroom Ideas
The bedroom serves as a sanctuary after a hard day’s work, so whatever recharges you should be part of the room – whether walls awash in a neutral palette, or eccentric furniture combinations against a backdrop of bright colors.
Before embarking on your design adventure, plan the layout of the room, taking into account all the pieces of furniture you would like to include. Having your bed, night stand, dresser, cabinets and walk-in wardrobe is great, but not so fun if you are left with hardly any floor space. Let function take precedence over form: If you spend more time in your bath than reading in bed, then it might make more sense move your small reading nook out of the way to accommodate a freestanding bathtub in the ensuite.
After settling on the floorplan, the fun begins. The design style of a bedroom can fall roughly into the categories of classic, vintage, glamorous or minimalist. Floor material, wall colors, bedding choices, furniture and artwork all play a part in pulling your bedroom look together and picking the ‘right’ colors and textures are all about your preferences, with no hard and fast rules. If you love the Scandinavian look, throw in some vintage bedside tables to add a layer of interest to the canvas of your white floor boards. The most interesting bedrooms are ones that blend different styles and textures.
Most bedrooms come with a standard ceiling lighting fixture, which unfortunately is all that most people default to. Make lighting part of your design plan as it has the potential to complete the mood you want in your bedroom. In general, you should aim to wash the room with soft lighting and have sufficient spot lighting for specific tasks. For instance, if you read or use the computer a lot, task-oriented lights such as floor and table lamps can spot light your workspace area. Overhead and down lights create a general ambience and it would be a good idea to attach a dimmer to these lights so that you can adjust its intensity.
