Creating a Perfect Bedroom

Creating a perfect bedroom is remarkably easy, as long as you keep a few things in mind. No matter what your personal taste is, how big or small your budget, if you follow a few simple guidelines, then you can make your bedroom truly memorable. The next time that you are looking to make a change in the bedroom, follow these guidelines, get a little help, and you will soon have a room that is truly your own.

  • Lighting. Lighting can help create any mood, so take a little time thinking about what you want to do in the room. Are you looking to create a space that makes you feel relaxed? If you are, then you will want to have the lighting be a little dimmer, or muted. Do you want a room that makes you feel energized the minute you step through the door? In this case then you will want to have a room with as much bright natural lighting as you can.
  • Color. Color can actually affect the way we feel more than we realize. This means that color cannot be ignored when you are looking to create the perfect bedroom. The key to color lies in understanding what your color palette is. This doesn't necessarily mean anything formal rather, what it means is that you understand how you feel around certain colors. An example of this is how I like to feel comfortable and cozy in my bedroom, so I go with a chocolate brown and accents of aqua blue.
  • Texture. A great way to make the perfect bedroom is to mix up the textures that you use a little. For most people our walls are usually very smooth, so change up the textures in the room a little by using shaggy carpets, rough woven blankets, a paint style on the wall that "roughens" things up a bit. Once again, you want to choose the textures that you like the most, and that make you feel the most comfortable.
  • Style. One of the most difficult aspects of creating the perfect bedroom is that of style, particularly if you share the bedroom with another person. Since everyone has their own definition of what is stylish and what is not, use that. Discuss with your partner what you each would like in the room, and be willing to compromise. Keep in mind that you will be the only people who will use the room, so your opinion is the only one that really matters.
