Bedroom Decorating Tips That You Won't Lose Sleep Over

Aug 17, 2007
Everyone loves a warm and inviting bedroom, a sanctuary away from the rest of the world. One thing all bedrooms need is adequate storage. If you are thinking of decorating your bedroom then make sure that you have sufficient drawer, cupboard and shelf space to accommodate all of your possessions.

Most bedroom decorating tips tend to be quite generic, i.e. they might say have one color as your basic scheme then choose some patterned curtains perhaps and match the rest of your bedroom accessories to one color within that pattern. What this does is to draw the room together and make it look more of a design, something that is meant to fit with the decorative style rather than something that is there because you didn't have anything better.

One of the best bedroom decorating tips is to decide on the style you might like before you begin. While this applies to any room that you are going to decorate it is most important in the bedroom. This is the room that as a general rule the public doesn't see so you want it to be a haven for you and for your partner if you have one. The same applies when you are decorating a child's bedroom, as soon as they are old enough to state what they like it is a good idea to take it into consideration before you start.

If you want to give your bedroom a romantic feel then some curtains round the bed might be attractive. You don't need a four-poster in order to do this as the curtains can be attached to rods in the ceiling. Try to coordinate your bedding and your curtains, it makes the room look more of a piece. If this is to be a feminine room then have lots of drapes and pretty lamps and cushions. Perhaps you want to give a bedroom a more masculine feel? Keep things plain but luxurious, perhaps a leather headboard and darker curtains and bedclothes. You might want a hardwood floor with rugs rather than a fitted carpet. Decide whether you want paint or paper or perhaps paint with a feature wall. Whatever style you decorate your bedroom in, always try to keep some sense of coordination. This way the style looks deliberate rather than thrown together. Sleep experts are agreed that the bedroom should be an oasis, a place where you can put aside the cares of the day. This means that the decor should be restful and conducive to a good night's sleep.
