Often, people spend their time at home relaxing in shared spaces like the living room and kitchen. Many homeowners put an emphasis on keeping these areas stylish, upgrading components and furniture to make their homes feel elegant and give them a sense of relaxation and peace. Upgrading a private area like the master suite can easily make a well-lived-in home feel new again. When upgrading to new bedroom furniture, there are a few things to keep in mind.
Consider the Size
Bedroom furniture comes in a wide variety of sizes, shapes and styles and certain pieces simply won’t work in certain rooms. Before going to the furniture store, take the measurements of your room. This will ensure that only furniture that fits is considered. As a general rule of thumb, avoid using large statement pieces in small spaces.
Get Creative with Lampshades
If a room needs nothing more than a few new accent pieces to enhance the existing decor’s style, don’t be afraid to mix and match colours and themes. Sometimes, a new lamp is all that’s needed to completely transform the look and feel, and playing fast and loose with existing styles can make a design look even trendier than otherwise possible. There’s no need to settle on plain colours; patterns and vibrant complementary colours can transform the space into a new, relaxing paradise.
Mix and Match Furniture Pieces
While a matching bedroom set can create a cohesive theme in a room, adding pieces from multiple styles or brands can create a unique appearance that expresses an individual’s style. Don’t be afraid to combine different finishes, colours, and styles to create a unique theme. For example, use light-coloured throw rugs to add brightness with a large, dark wood statement piece. Add soft classic accents to complement a sleek contemporary bed set.
Don’t Neglect Storage Options
Clutter can make even the largest rooms feel small, but not all bedrooms feature adequate storage space or solutions. Consider adding bookshelves to add more vertical storage to the space. If storage is at an absolute premium, look for a bed set with built-in drawers or a headboard with shelves to create more storage space. Rather than storing everything on the top of a dresser, invest in a nightstand that provides adequate storage for an alarm clock, books, or any other necessities best kept close at hand.
