Have you been dreaming of having that perfect space to call your own? Do you see pictures of bedrooms online and in magazines and wish that you could do this on your own? These are the tips and tricks that you need to know to create the perfect in style bedroom for your home.
Tips to Create the Bedroom of Your Dreams
Know Your Style
The first thing that you have to if you want the bedroom that you have always dreamed of is have a good idea of what your style is. If you do not know the style that you want your room to be, you can ask yourself a few questions. Do you want a more classic or modern look? Do you already own pieces that you want to incorporate into your design? Answering these can help you get an idea of what you are looking for and how you can get started.
Pick Out Your Furnishings
Before you can pick out your bedding and other pieces to decorate your room, you should pick out the furnishings that you want to include in your room. Of course choosing the right furniture for your bedroom can be tough. Most people invest quite a bit of money into their bedroom furniture so it is something that they are going to be using for quite some time.
Know How to Shop for Bedding
Bedding is one of the most difficult things to shop for. HGTV recently published ten “rules” for finding the perfect bedding. Among these it was suggested that you understand the difference between different thread counts, how to find the perfect summer blankets, and even which blankets are best for winter months. Of course finding stylish bedding to meet your needs is also important. You want something that is going to reflect yourself and the room.
Deciding Between a Bedspread, a Comforter, and a Quilt
Many people do not understand the difference between the purchase of a bedspread or a comforter. There is a huge difference. Comforters are like a big blanket that drops to the floor but does not cover the top of the bed. You will need decorative pillows or pillow shams to get the full coverage look that you are going for. They are generally fluffy and can be made from a number of materials so that you can use them like a big blanket. Bedspreads drop to the floor on all three sides and have enough room so that you can cover the pillows completely at the top of the bed. Quilts are often times handmade but can also be machine manufactured. Quilts can be completely customized to fit your personality and give you the exact look that you are going for in the room.
Determine Which Look You Love
There are a number of different feelings or looks that you might want to evoke when you walk into your bedroom. If you are going for a romantic room pastel colors, white, and floral prints are a must. For an exotic edge be sure to check out tropical flowers and animal themed prints. To create a classic look choose solid colors in a variety of textures. If you want something fun choose the pattern or material that jumps out to you. For something more masculine you can choose from dark solid colors, plaids, and unique geometric prints. Finally if you would like a charming look go for the hand crafted quilt or simple patterns.
You do not need to be a decorating genius to create your perfect bedroom. Instead you just need to be ready to experiment and honest with yourself about your desires and wants. If you do this then you will be sure to create the bedroom that you previously thought only existed in your dreams.
