Everybody realizes at one point or another that their bedroom is humdrum, dysfunctional, unorganized, or all three. Here are some tips to make your room picture perfect.
When you are redecorating your bedroom, it is crucial that you consider the placement of your furniture. Place your bed in a location that makes sense, allowing you to open all of the doors in the room fully, while still being in a position that feels natural to you.
One of the most important aspects of your room should be comfort. When you are picking out new pieces, you must remember to choose blankets and pillows that are comfortable and suit your personal style. But, it is also important that your furniture does not have harsh edges. A softer edge will keep the furniture from taking up too much space, while also giving the room a more open feel. Try to use dim lighting. Not only will this give your room a more cozy feel, but it will also create a more relaxed environment.
If you have a small space, you most likely have a small closet, which means that there will not be very much room in your closet for shoes. Instead of letting them pile up on top of one another on the floor, build a shoe rack inside of your closet. With this, you will be able to organize your shoes as well as some other belongings, such as bags or sweaters. To find these and other organizing materials, I suggest shopping at The Home Depot, Lowe’s and The Container Store.
Finally, to decorate your room, you do not need to scour expensive stores for fancy decorative art. There are plenty of things that you can make yourself that will look fantastic. For example, hang string lights instead of using a lamp or a traditional light fixture. However, not everyone is artistically inclined, so you may be able to find some stand-out pieces for your room in affordable stores such as Urban Outfitters, Homegoods, or Bed, Bath, and Beyond.
Whichever direction you decide to take the redecoration process, make sure that your space fits your personality and that you have fun!
