It is no secret that the bedroom can make or break your day. It’s where you go to rejuvenate, sleep, and prepare for tomorrow. So why not take some time to design an awesome space that will help you be your best self?
The key to creating a bedroom that is both functional and beautiful starts with setting goals for what you want it to do for you. What does this room need in order to function effectively as your personal escape?
Is it enough just to put up fresh flowers every once in a while or do you need more than that? You’ll also want to think about how much time and money are available so that you can create the perfect atmosphere without breaking the bank!
Set Goals for Your Bedroom.
Before you start even thinking of picking colors for your room, clean it up first. Organize everything and make sure that everything has its proper place. Once everything is in order, you can move on to the next step – brainstorming.
There are no limits when it comes to designing a bedroom-you can choose any style or theme for your bedroom as long as it fits within your budget and appeals to you. You may consider a Japanese themed bedroom if you love the calm ambiance of nature found in Japan.
But if you want something more simple, then go with sleek, modern lines instead. The world is your oyster when it comes to decorating the bedroom! So be creative!
One thing that you need to keep in mind when decorating is to set goals for your room. For example, if you want your bedroom to be an oasis of peace and quiet, make sure that there are no TV sets in the bedroom. You can keep the television in the living room if you want it separate from your bedroom.
Another great goal that you need to establish is how much confinement you’re willing to take on when designing your bedroom. This will dictate what color scheme or material you should use for wallpapers, paints, tiles, etc.
If you like spending most of your time at home inside the comforts of your own bedroom then it’s best if you stick with light colored walls or perhaps earth tones so that it’ll feel more relaxing instead of being too bright or too dark.
Of course, if you’re the type of person who likes going to sleep only when it’s late at night, then by all means go with darker tones for your bedroom.
If you’re not sure what color combinations would look good in your room, check out magazines and websites dedicated to home design. There are also a lot of books out there that will provide you with a lot of ideas and inspiration for a bedroom design to match your personality. If you’re not into reading then an afternoon walk inside a furniture or home goods store may help.
Just take note though that the most expensive items are usually displayed first so if you want to limit your expenses, don’t be tempted to buy the most glamorous pieces-the ones you like, but can’t really afford.
Pick Affordable Furniture Pieces.
Though a lot of people don’t have a huge budget for their bedrooms, you can still get quality furniture pieces on a tight budget. Here are some styling tips:
- Wooden beds and desks will last longer than other types of furniture. If you’re looking to save money in the long term, choose solid wood over veneer or MDF (medium density fiberboard). Solid wooden furniture is more expensive, but it’s sturdier and better looking!
- Affordable bedroom sets that look upscale: check out warehouse stores like Ikea for great options at inexpensive prices. You’ll find stylish and high quality furniture pieces for your room at affordable prices.
- Look outside the box: go to flea markets and garage sales for unique pieces that can complement your bedroom. Sometimes, you might find hidden treasures at these places!
- Go green: choose eco-friendly items made from sustainable materials for an affordable and stylish bedroom.+
Keep it Clean and Organized.
Keeping your room clean is important to help with stress management, but cleaning doesn’t have to be expensive. A few simple tricks can keep your bedroom clean without breaking the bank:
- Wash your bedsheets every week to kill mites that cause dandruff (which attracts other pests like dust mites). After washing them, put them out in the sun to deodorize (eliminating odors) and freshen them up naturally! You won’t believe how great they’ll smell.
- Choose darker hues for your walls. Light colors attract dirt, which you have to clean more often. Darker hues are naturally less visible so they’ll hide stains better too!
- Use a plastic shower curtain instead of a glass or cloth one. This way, you don’t need to worry about moisture destroying the flooring material under your bed. You can even wipe it down with soap and water to keep it clean all the time!
- Make sure that you brush away dust every now and then (even after cleaning), as this reduces allergens in the bedroom (and keeps dust bunnies at bay).
One thing remains consistent across most budget friendly designs – using what you already own or having less things in general. When you purchase an item, make sure to buy the highest quality version of it that you can afford! This way, you’ll know that your furniture will last longer and require less maintenance.
