Keep in mind that the end result should produce a distinct and memorable impression when decorating a bedroom. Space, colors, and decorations all set a bedroom’s mood, and when put together well, can create a definite, pleasurable look.
Symmetry is the most important factor when it comes to the arrangement of items in a bedroom. The bedroom is your personal space and should not be cluttered with too many objects creating a claustrophobic effect. For a room to seem personal, special touches should be added that reflect your special loves and interests. This includes your favorite colors, photographs, books, etc. Make sure colors are balanced in subtle shades reflecting your interests and lifestyle. The older generation seems to prefer more subdued shades than the younger generation, who opt for bright, textured colors. To maintain balance, the color of a chair placed at one end of the room can be repeated on pillows or carpet. Furniture in the bedroom is of utmost importance.
Don’t overdo it with too many pieces making your bedroom look cluttered and overdressed. The size of the bed should be in proportion to the size of the bedroom. What matters the most is a comfort. Therefore, a bed should offer comfort, quality and a feeling of elegance. Nightstands or side tables should be on either side of the bed for books, telephone, and medications. A dressing table comes in handy for women with lots of storage space are ideal.
Ample closet space is important, as are wall decor and mirrors. Mirrors help to give a room a larger look and also help to reflect light. Lighting should be gentle and relaxing. Valence lighting is ideal for bedrooms, and colored lights can be used for added effects. Subtle light gives a romantic feeling to the room, and focused light is good for detail work like reading without disturbing someone sleeping in the room.
And last but not least, a bedroom should be well-ventilated, designed for comfort and always stocked with a vase of flowers for a fresh feeling.
