5 Tips for Revitalizing Your Bedroom Design

It’s time to turn your bedroom into a dream respite. Whether you just moved in or have lived there awhile, do you feel like your bedroom design has been neglected? There is no better time to give it some much-needed attention than now. We are ready to provide you with five tips to jumpstart your bedroom makeover, and make it a space that will have a positive impact on your daily life. 

Make it Simple 

To start, don’t overcomplicate things. The bedroom is meant to be simple. Make it a mission to minimize unnecessary items and furniture in the room because clutter is known to increase anxiety. Who wants that? Survey your space and take note of anything that does not make the space more functional. Perhaps some clothes belong in the closet, papers could be neatly placed on your work desk, or boxes relocated to other parts of the home. Anything that does not serve a purpose should be greatly minimized. This will ensure that the space maintains its simplicity.

Establish Clear Pathways

Do you have furniture blocking your path as you navigate around your bedroom? Walking into your space should be a breeze–and not a struggle. It’s key to arrange furniture in a way that allows for unobstructed movement. Our recommendation is to start with the largest piece of furniture. In most homes, this is the bed. Position it so it’s farther away from the door to maximize the space and give it an airy and open feel!

Customize the Window Treatments 

There’s a definite appeal to natural light. It uplifts one’s mood and creates a great atmosphere. While it has its benefits, it also can have its downfalls. If your home has a lot of natural light, you may wish to take a nap or watch a movie without having the sunlight flooding in. To achieve the perfect balance between light and privacy, try customized window treatments. You can tailor your treatments to your wants and needs. No matter if you want complete darkness as you sleep or filtered sunshine as you wake up, there are many options available to you.

If ease is of the utmost importance, try smart shades. With the click of a button, whether it be on an app or a remote, you can instantly transform your space. Room-darkening shades are ideal for those looking to block out the sun during the day, while also establishing privacy and darkness at night. 

Be Intentional with Lighting

The bedroom is meant for more than just sleeping. It can be a multifunctional space. You may use this place to work from home, cozy up and read a good book, talk to long-distance friends, or watch your favorite television show. It serves many purposes. However, each activity may require different levels of lighting. If you like the soft glow of a lamp on your nightstand, sconces on the wall, or a chandelier that brings in a lot of light while making a statement, you know best what you need in your bedroom. We recommend being intentional and finding the best lighting options for your daily routine.

Style Your Bedroom 

The bedroom is your sanctuary. Why not infuse your personality into the space? You may find inspiration from magazines, your imagination, or online. As you curate your respite, start with one item and build from there. You may be surprised with what you pick first! It could be a bedspread that you saw on a website, an area rug that you walked past while shopping, or an accent wall that you can’t stop envisioning. As you start the design process, you’ll quickly see how your bedroom design can transform into your ideal retreat.
