Your bedroom may be the place that you head to when you want to sleep for the night, but it has the potential to be so much more than that. Even if you don't spend a lot of time there, your room deserves a good design not only to express yourself but to give yourself a place where you feel like you can sit back and relax after a long day.
Finding the right design, however, can be a challenge, especially if you're not sure how you want the place to look. Sometimes you also have to worry about space restrictions, which can put a damper on your ideas. Thankfully, no matter what kind of space you have, there's a perfect setup waiting for you to discover it. For inspiration, check out these bedroom ideas.
Light It Up!
Lights can go a long way in making your bedroom become a unique space. Even better, lights have plenty of practical applications, be it from navigating in the morning or to establishing a relaxing atmosphere for your nighttime routine. Statement lights like intricately designed pendants or even miniature chandeliers can also serve as decorations on their own.
Try combining different light fixtures to help bring together the atmosphere in your room. Don't forget the opportunity to use mounted lights to make a statement or find interesting lamp designs for your bedside table. While it can take a little bit of thought to get the balance just right, it'll be worth it when your room looks both
stylish and has enough lighting to appreciate it!
Let Yourself Get a Little Glamorous Glam furniture and décor can be the perfect way to make your bedroom feel like the ultimate luxurious getaway at the end of the day. While a lot of different elements go into this style, a lot of the key is in the colors. Glam bedrooms use a lot of restraint in picking controlled color patterns that have the perfect splashes of metallic golds or silvers to bring in a sophisticated look.
Your furniture choices play a significant role, too, and your bed can serve as a huge center point for the design. Even if you don't go too overboard on the style, you can use your bedspread and accent pillows to bring the color scheme. Another key to success is using rich, textured fabrics that add that perfect finishing touch that sucks you right in.
Create a Dark, Sensual Atmosphere
If you use it right, black can become an excellent color for your bedroom. Of course, you'll want to have enough natural light to keep things from getting too dark, and especially during the daytime. If not, another design might suit your needs better, since you might otherwise end up with a spooky design, rather than a sexy one.
If you do have that light, however, press forward! Contrasting black walls with a white bedspread and a few other accent pieces of decoration can keep things from feeling too gloomy. From there, you can use other bursts of color to flesh out your design palate and make an impression. Just save this design concept for the bedroom and not other places in your home.
Try the Contemporary Style
Contemporary designs can make for some of the best bedroom ideas, especially when you're trying to make the most of a space. Natural elements are what help this style shine, especially when you think about natural lighting again. You also shouldn't be afraid to get a little creative with your walls: uniquely designed wallpapers and wall-to-wall curtains help the room feel cozy. And don't forget to accentuate that comfort with some extra hints of nature in the form of houseplants!
Greenery can help both improve the look of your bedroom and the quality of the air you breathe, all while adding in a relaxing atmosphere. And when you can better relax in your bedroom, the better time you'll have relaxing at the end of a long day.
Let Color Run Free
Of course, the muted and subdued looks don't work for everyone, and plenty of people feel right at home in a swirling bombardment of colors. If this is you, don't be afraid to try and make things bright and exciting for your personal space. While many design tenants seem to think that larger areas handle colors better, you can still create a wild design in a small space if you think it through first. Colorful designs can work for bedrooms of all ages, especially when creating a space for a young child. Remember that you don't need to restrict yourself to dull colors, either; textures and patterns can help
tie a room together. Add in some creative decoration or furniture choices, and you can make a unique design all your own!
Embrace the Feeling of Nature
While we mentioned bringing plants into the bedroom with contemporary design, don't forget that you can also shift your design choices to emulate the outdoors. Using forest green as a base color, you can then create a rich environment that makes you feel like you're outdoors, no matter how far away your home may be from any actual trees. When working with this design, taking advantage of wooden patterns in furniture can help bring the look together, and so can wooden flooring. You'll also want to take advantage of patterned textiles and other colors and patterns similar to plant life to bring everything together. While the look may be unexpected, it's still cozy and welcoming.
Make the Most of Your Space With Minimalism
If you don't want to be too excessive with your style, instead of working in a pure white or very starkly colored space can create a simple look. However, you don't have to keep everything too devoid of color. Jewel tones can make the perfect addition that livens up your space without needing everything to look like you went crazy with the colors. The best choices for jewel tones are deep blues, purples, and greens—anything that looks like it wouldn't be out of place on a piece of jewelry can do. You only need one or two splashes of your chosen color to make an impression, plus you can quickly draw attention to a specific design element when it stands out to the eye.
Head Southwest (at Least in Your Design Choices)
The whole concept of southwest based design has plenty of opportunities to create a unique look. Aside from the few decorations and accessories concerning livestock, you can have a lot of flexibility when bringing this design together. Patterned textiles and pillows are what can make this design come together. With a little personal flair, it's easy to take what could be an almost rustic style and turn it into something utterly chic. Of course, the rustic look can have it's own sense of appeal, too, so feel free to make your design work in whichever way you like.
Relax in an Elegant Environment
Who doesn't want to come home at the end of the day and feel like they're living at the height of luxury? An elegant bedroom design can make you feel like you've stepped into another world that's nconveniently pretty far away from the typical day to day one. Lighting can add to the look in this type of design style, especially if you go for something extravagant like a mini chandelier. Patterns can help pull this look together, especially if you're working with textured or patterned wallpaper. When it comes to furniture choices, you can quickly pick up vintage or antique pieces without having to stretch your budget too far—and repainting the parts so that they match each other can help when you're gathering as you go. Don't forget to pick out relaxing colors to make the design come
Just like any other room in your home, the bedroom has nearly infinite possibilities when it comes to
decoration and aesthetic. Even better, since your room is your personal space, you can potentially
create a private sanctuary that matches the unique design needs that you can't pull off anywhere else.
Ultimately, what your dream looks like will be up to you, but these bedroom ideas can provide a great
wealth of inspiration to get you started.
