5 Tips to Transform Your Bedroom Design

Your bedroom is a special place in your home. It isn’t just a room, but it’s where you go to relax and unwind after a busy day. It doesn’t matter if you’re starting to move into a new home or have lived there for awhile. Crafting the perfect bedroom design can feel challenging. We’ve curated five tips to help turn your space into the ideal retreat. Let’s get started!

Simplicity Matters

The moment you step over the threshold into your bedroom, you should feel a sudden sense of calmness. Maybe your shoulders are lower and you can start to unwind. However, this isn’t possible if there’s clutter. Look around your room, and assess any items that don’t belong. You could have a chair that is hidden under a pile of clothes, furniture that doesn’t fit the space correctly, or a work desk that has papers strewn across the top. Now is the time to bid farewell to superfluous items. Either donate, organize, or find them a new space in your home. By embracing simplicity, you’ll witness firsthand how your bedroom can transform.

Promote Movement

When you wake up in the morning, do you find it hard to navigate your way to either the bathroom, dressers, or closet? Strategically arranging your furniture to promote clear pathways will make your life so much easier. Since the bed is the biggest piece of furniture, start there! We recommend moving it away from the door so you can create an open and airy space.

Customize Window Treatments 

Natural light is one of the many reasons why we love our homes. It gives such an airy and vibrant feeling to a room. Sometimes this can be a little much. You may want sunshine to come through, but on your terms. It’s crucial to find that perfect balance between privacy and light. This can be done with customized window treatments. Whether you like complete darkness when you sleep, or the gentle glow of the sun as the day begins, you can tailor your treatments to your wants and needs.

With smart shades, you can effortlessly adjust the atmosphere of your room with a simple click of a remote or an app on your phone. Opening and closing your shades has just become easier. If you find yourself wanting to close out the sun completely during the day, or wish to have ultimate privacy at night, room-darkening shades are a must for your bedroom design. 

Intentionality and Lighting 

Bedrooms are used for more than just sleeping. It’s where we binge-watch our favorite television shows, talk with long-distance friends, or enjoy a good book. Each activity requires different levels of lighting. From the soft glow of a table lamp, to the illumination of a chandelier, there’s a variety of options to choose from. Embrace levels of lighting by finding what works best for your routine and personal preferences.

Style Your Space 

Last, but not least, is infusing your personality into your bedroom design. Whether you find inspiration online, in magazines, or your imagination, start with one area. If you saw a beautiful bedspread, an eye-catching feature wall, or an amazing statement rug, the important part is making sure it reflects you! Your design journey is meant to be fun, so add in your style to better cultivate a warm and inviting space to unwind.
