Refuge In Your Bedroom

Aug 17, 2007
There is perhaps no other room in any home that is as important or as used as the bedroom. The bedroom is our own personal refuge when we have had a hard day. A bedroom gives us the perfect opportunity to lie back, relax and read our favorite novel or newspaper. Maybe that is the reason we often spend so much time deciding on what we put into this one room.

Our interest with bedrooms is evident right from the start. When we go looking for a flat or a home of our own, one of the first things we ask is how many bedrooms are available within the property. Usually, the more bedrooms, the more you will spend on rent or on a mortgage. Of course, we also show concern with the size of those bedrooms. The larger a bedroom, the more personal space we will end up with.

Once we have that bedroom of our very own, then we go looking for some bedroom furniture. Finding bedroom furniture can be fun, but we always want something in our personal refuge that is comfortable and is a direct display of our personality and tastes. Of courese there are beds, dressers, armoires, and various other pieces of furniture specifically designed for the bedroom.

Speaking of furniture, let's talk materials. There are a great many materials that can be used and often found in a bedroom. You may find that there is wood, metal, plastic or even paper. Each type of material has its own benefits. Sometimes, all of the furniture will match, but other times, a bedroom is a mix-matched collage of favored pieces gathered over time. Choosing bedroom furniture really comes down to picking the option best suited to your individual taste and needs.

Bedroom decor is another aspect of our bedroom where you can add that personal touch. Do you have flowers decorating your room? Do you have sports cars decorating your room? Maybe you even have fairies and princesses. No matter what the decor, you can tell a lot about the occupants of a bedroom simply by checking out the bedroom wall paper or other decorations. More often than not, the first thing you can tell by the decor is the age of the occupants and the second thing that is usually obvious, is the gender of the person.

The amount of money you spend on your bedroom is evident in many ways via the furniture and decorations of that bedroom. Having a mixed collection of expensive and inexpensive furniture and decorations is a great way to have a cost effective bedroom that can look great, without the added expense. For the more affluent, there are actually bedroom designers that can help make your bedroom the resting place that is best suited to you.

Bedroom furniture is often so cherished you may even find and decide to buy antique bedroom decorations and or furniture. Why? Because antique bedroom furniture is often sturdy and built to last. You will find that there are many options when you start looking for a way to decorate your bedroom to suit your taste.

One tip when planning and decorting your first bedroom is to stick to just painted walls. This will allow to change the appearance simply by adding a new coat of paint. Add in some pictures of your choice and you will soon be well on your way to creating your very own place of refuge.
