Taste is an important factor when you are thinking of designing your bedroom. You want it ornate as well as cozy or simple yet spacious- everything is up to you. Listed here are some of the best bedroom designs that you could have in your house. These are useful in both ways- if you are decorating your house or renovating it.
These ideas help you realize that the particular space in the home is not just as a place where you go to sleep, but as a place where, before sleep is induced, you can enjoy watching a television show, or listen to slow music or chit chat with your loved ones. A beautiful room greeting you in the morning can make your day as well.
Therefore, you should plan it in such a way that living within its contours becomes a seamless and enjoyable experience. The same should be provided to the children as well as the guests who come to visit you. Discussed here are some simple steps by which you can renovate these three types of rooms.
Small Children’s bedroom- With their age children develop a variety of tastes, it relates to the room they live in too. Of course, every year you cannot have your kids’ room done with all other major expenses bothering you, neither can you just listen to their whining about their room décor day in and day out. Therefore, the best way to resolve this matter is to do it in a sober way instead of in bright colors which seemed a good option when they were just toddling or got registered in a school. Instead what you can do is try using different types of accessories on the sober backdrop.
Neutral shades on a wall will help you put different bright colored objects, like mirrors, photo frames, wall hangings etc. all in the same place, without making anything look odd or out of place. Next, for furniture, think on a long term basis. Do not always buy age appropriate things, and if you do make sure you can use them for other purpose at least for the next 10 to 12 years. Rocker/armoire can hold toys for the time being and electronic gears later on.
Safety is another important factor. Install childproof electrical fittings along with built in bookcases and dressers for further use. Shelves, cupboards, pull out drawers and cubbyholes prove to be great areas for storage purpose. Another important thing is the use of flooring-use vinyl confetti floors- this resists marks made on the floors by children. Use wall lamps instead of table lamps which can drop off or get tripped over by ‘mistake’.
Keep the same back drop, meaning the color of the walls, just get rid of the too ‘cute’ items. The once favorite Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck wall hangings need to be changed. Furnishing should also be intelligently done- you may include a reading lamp beside the bed so that your children develop a habit of reading books at night.
Opt for comfortable and simple bedding options. Remove the bright colored pillows and stick to one or two sober colored ones. However you can only change the covers of both bed and pillows. But instead of sobering the beds, you can use bright contrasting colors that light up the room. Install a study table with chair to give the look an aura of seriousness- you can also add a large bulletin board, picture of the favorite sportsman, and an ergonomically designed chair for the back of the young ones.
Necessities will help you decide what your guest bedroom needs. Keep this room as simple as possible. Put on light shade paint on the walls. Include furniture like a comfortable bed, a good reading light, an inbuilt cupboard or a closet, a television for entertainment, a small music system and a rack of magazines.
A cabinet beside the bed with a drinking water jug on it, neatly arranged plump pillows and blankets on the bed are all the basic things you need. Of course there is an option of adding on to it if you wish to.
Here is a categorization of some of the best ways you can change your plain and simple bedroom to an idyllic retreat zone. But before starting off with the categorization, you should keep in mind that interiors can be mixed and matched in any way you please. It is you who will be residing in this area and your comfort and satisfaction counts the most.
Cozy bedroom- White washed walls, snowy linens, and an easy to use window treatment is a desirable option if you are planning on this model. If you are a traditionalist, this kind of set up will suit you perfectly. The dark wood furniture and other furnishings will stand out in contrast to make the room appealing.
But for this kind of set up you cannot over do the area. You can put in only the things that you need- like a well furnished, comfortable upholstered or fabric headboard, a mirrored armoire, two wing chairs and a small table in front.
Porcelain, pottery, art works can be used as accessories. Even a small plant or a vase would do great on a shelf. It is preferable to use soft carpets which will pamper your bare feet as you walk on it.
Island gateway bedroom- In this kind the area of the room does not matter. It becomes more of a well composed area with dark and colonial styled furniture that is ageless. Asian inspired baskets, well planned layering of sheets and pillow covers, portraits of the beach, inner plants, romantic chandeliers and large windows – all these are usually included to bring in the feel of this kind of a bedroom. The walls are usually plain white with simple curtains; sisal carpet, couple of plain wooden chairs create the perfect set up.
Parisian style bedroom décor- The best way to describe this kind of bedrooms is straightforward. The décor includes no specific plants, flower pots or vases. The only furniture present in this area is a simple bed with a curvy headboard, sober colored pillows, and a similar colored cabinet by the side of the bed.
The windows and doors can have plain curtains or bright colored as well as patterned curtains. Only a family picture on the walls or on the cabinet, a reading lamp and a sober yet comfortable sofa chair is required to complete this décor.
Faux Painting Bedroom
For this kind of set up the most important thing is a ceiling with a mural painting. In the given image the mural is an exact replica of the sky. This creates a magical effect to your room and makes your home seem much bigger than it actually is.
And since the ceiling steals the show, the internal fabrics and furnishings need not be too exquisite. You can do the room either in an ornate manner or in a chic fashion.
For ornate you can bring in an iron bed with a sensuous display of curtains and other fabrics. You can add oversized paintings, European chests, comfortable pillows, mattresses, dark colored furniture, and table lamps.
For simple and chic, you can use double size comfortable bed, brightly patterned white sheet, and other draping, light brown wooden furniture and white or sober colored chests and drawers. In this setting it is important that you do not over-stuff the room.
European Style bedroom
This is more suited to be called as a lady’s chamber. However, men also can be accommodated in this set up. The furnishing in this type of room essentially includes blue and white colors. The curtains, bed sheets and wall hangings should have this blend too. The repeated pattern if used on the upholstered bed or window seat creates a cozy and warm effect.
Along with this the use of gilded mirrors, photo frames or paintings on the walls accentuate the European feeling.
Rustic patterned bedroom- This type of setup allows you the freedom to add and alter decorative pieces as and when you want. The use of stone walls or the more modernized version of stone façade tiling with leaded windows create the effect of romantic cottages present in the countryside. It is featured with a succinct play of colors.
Sometimes a predominant color theme can also be used. Such as sea, in that case the effects of sea can be created by introducing a picture of the sea, using blue colored bed sheets and pillows. The other furnishings should also create the same kind of effect. Often by contrasting colors you can create an effect. Introduce flowers, diverse carpets and large mirrors to this setup to accentuate the rustic feeling.
The bedroom is an area within the house where you spend your most personal moments, whether be it with your loved ones or with your own self, so decorating it in the perfect way is important. Not just does it add an element of class to your inner world, but also, if done correctly, provides you with every other thing that you need close at hand, without hampering the beauty of it.2015-09-25
