Your bedroom is more than just a place where you take forty winks. It is the first thing you see when you open your eyes in the morning and the last thing you see when you go to bed at night. Humans are highly susceptible to outside stimuli which means that images you pick up during the day follow you no matter what you do. To give yourself a head start in both your private and professional life, here are few design ideas ideal for your bedroom in the upcoming year.
Start With the Light
The illumination of your bedroom is first and foremost thing you need to worry about when it comes to design. One of the things that deserves your attention is the natural light. If your bedroom is facing east, you might want to consider investing in quality blinds to keep the sunrays from waking you up too early in the morning. These blinds are also a great idea for those who have a strong streetlight close to their window, since this might prevent them from falling asleep at night.
Your best option, would be to use subtle lighting, perhaps even a lighting system that allows you to dim the lights. Needless to say, this will make your room appear infinitely more romantic. Furthermore, you can also try to enhance the impression that your room makes by using fiery elements like lanterns and candles. In fact, a lot of people make candle holders themselves through simple and fun DIY projects.
Black and White
One of the greatest problems people face when designing their bathrooms is the choice of color. On one hand, they need something comfortable enough, something that won’t create too much distraction. However, they still want to create that sense of elegance and luxury in their bedroom. The easiest solution to have both things is to go with a simple black and white design. This still gives you a lot of maneuvering space since black and white is timeless and complements both classic and contemporary style.
Here, you have three elements to look out for. Your walls, your floor and your furniture. You can go with a black furniture on a white background (walls and flooring) or the other way around. On the other hand, mixing these colors in a single element (except in a furniture pattern) is not the best choice.
Expanding Your Bedroom
Finally, the size of the bedroom matters as well. To some, as long as you have the room for the bed the bedroom is big enough. Still, you can always do better. A larger room gives you a sense of open space which helps you relax. After all, this is what a bedroom is supposed to be all about. It also gives you more options when it comes to decoration since it opens space for all the furniture pieces you believe you need. In a recent interview with renowned renovation builders, it came to our attention that bedroom remodeling is one of the most popular choices their clients make.
As you can see, when compared to 2016, much is expected to change in the following year. The most important change will be the shift of focus from objective design to a subjective one. In other words, how you see your bedroom is all that matters. How you do it remains completely up to your own personal preference and decoration budget. Still, money never could replace true creativity and ability to think outside-of-the-box.
