When the weather turns for the worst, and the first signs of winter chill start to take hold, the miserable weather often inspires people to carry out some DIY in the house, and the very first thing that springs to mind is redecorating. Very often it is the bedroom that is first to get its makeover, but before deciding on the finer points of your interior designing efforts, some thoughts will have to be given to the furniture that will grace the finished room. Although choosing new furniture can be a difficult process, there are a few pointers you can follow that will make the whole thing a lot easier, helping you potentially get the very best out your newly designed and decorated bedroom.
One of the first things that need to be accomplished is the actual redecorating part. Although it may appear simpler to just buy everything you require, this is the boring way of doing things and it’s always better to learn a little about interior design beforehand. This is especially true if you want your bedroom to be stylish.
When it comes to choosing the new colour of your bedroom, pay no attention to “what is in” at the moment.
Choose colours based on your own particular preferences. Darker colours are ideal for those who prefer a warm, cozy feel to the room, although smaller rooms do not really benefit from being dark. If you still prefer a darker colour for a room that is small, then maybe paint only the one wall this colour, making it a feature wall.
When choosing the furniture you do not want to make the mistake of having a beautifully designed room but not so nice furniture plonked into the middle of it. Think about where you will want everything placed before you start purchasing what you require. This planning in advance can save a lot of future hassle. The biggest part of a bedroom is obviously going to be the bed, so getting this right is extremely important. Maybe you can pick the bed you require first, and then base everything else in the room around this? That includes both the interior design aspect of things, and the rest of the furniture. Oftentimes you can get a lot of inspiration by doing it this way.
Following on from this, it just doesn’t make sense to design a room first and then add a particular piece of furniture you’ve had your eye on, only to find out they match horribly! Make sure you really know what you want before you start, make some forward planning and then you can rest assured that everything will fall into place nicely for you.
