Refining your bedroom could likely prove to be a highly rewarding endeavor, considering that many of us spend ten or more hours a day there. Enhancing an environment you spend much of your time in, as well as most of your regenerative moments, certainly will improve your mood and quality of life. As you continue reading, you will learn more about the steps of the somewhat lengthy process of upgrading your bedroom.
First, you need to have a vision of what you want to do. You can acquire this from interior design magazines, HGTV shows or by discussing ideas with an ASID-certified interior designer. Remember to take notes, so you don’t forget your vision. Now, with your room-improvement concept in hand, start the refining process by painting and/or wallpapering the room. Next, determine what items in your room you want to replace or upgrade. Then, make a shopping list of all the things you need.
However, before going shopping, measure the dimensions of your room to ensure all your desired items will comfortably fit within it. There’s nothing worse than buying a lot of expensive furniture, transporting it home and then not being able to use it. Speaking of furniture, your bed is the most prominent item in your bedroom; the surface area of its covers is likely greater than most other objects in the room. It is for this reason you should be mindful of how your bedding fits into your bedroom’s color scheme. When selecting a dresser or chest of drawers, you want one that matches the style of your bed and isn’t too much taller than it.
Lighting is another aspect of your room that can make or break it. Remember to use enough light to make your feel cozy, without making it feel overly radiant. The goal is to have lighting that relaxes you, that can also be adjusted to put you in the mood to sleep. You can accomplish this with good table lamps that are effectively placed.
A refined bedroom should have a lounging area, where you can unwind prior to sleep. In other words, a place where you can read, watch tv, listen to music or simply consume an evening snack. This part of your bedroom should have a sofa or comfortable chair and a table for snacks/drinks. The capstone of a fine bedroom is the right art hanging on the wall. This picture or painting should reflect your personality and complement your bedroom’s other décor.
With all this said, the perfect bedroom is one you feel most comfortable in. It’s one that both matches your personality and facilitates the important function of sleep. Once you are able to fully refine your bedroom to your liking, you are closer to improving your overall health.
