It isn’t uncommon for homeowners who are redecorating their whole home to leave their master bedroom to last. Often, because this isn’t a communal space it can be seen as less important, but this definitely isn’t the case. If your bedroom isn’t somewhere you love spending time and look forward to relaxing in at the end of the day, then it is likely that this room will really benefit from a little refurbishment.
As you may expect, refurbishing a bedroom can be very different from refurbishing other rooms in the home and if you’ve not redesigned a space of this kind before then you may be feeling a little out of your depth. So, to help any homeowners who are keen to give their master bedroom a new lease of life, below we have listed some of the biggest ‘dos and don’ts’ of bedroom design that are worthwhile knowing about.
DO ensure that you have plenty of storage
Having enough storage space in your bedroom is undeniably essential and this will help you to keep the space tidy and clutter-free. You may find that having a big fitted wardrobe isn’t enough and you need some chest of drawers or additional cabinetry too. Think out of the box when it comes to storage as when you’re designing your own furniture your possibilities are endless.
DO add some personality to the space
It is often recommended that you opt for a neutral colour palette in the bedroom to create a calming ambience, and whilst having a relaxing interior design is important, don’t be afraid to add some personality into the space as well. You can use colour and pattern in your bedroom if you’d like to, so think about what your individual preferences are in this regard.
DO make space for essential bedroom furniture
Everyone has different requirements when it comes to bedroom furniture and what’s considered essential differs from person to person. Think about what you class as essential, whether this is a vanity table or a bedside table, and ensure that you make space in the design for these pieces of furniture. After all, this room needs to be perfect for you, not anyone else.
DON’T add lots of unnecessary pieces of furniture
So many people get carried away when it comes to purchasing pieces of furniture or designing fitted bedroom furniture, but it is essential to have some free space in this room. You should be able to move around your bed with ease and have adequate ‘circulation space’. So, as well as cutting back on unnecessary furniture, think about the placement of your furniture as well.
DON’T overlook the importance of lighting
It isn’t uncommon for homeowners to rely on the natural light coming in through the window and a single overhead light in their bedroom, but this usually isn’t enough. Consider where you can add additional lighting, such as lamps or wall lights, to ensure that there is plenty of light if you’re reading in bed, for example. Dimmer lights are a really popular choice for bedrooms too.
DON’T forget about the interior of your wardrobes
Aside from the bed, your wardrobe is arguably one of the most important pieces of furniture in your bedroom, especially if you don’t have a separate dressing room. For this reason, it is so important to make sure that it is suitable for your individual needs. Think about the interior design of your fitted wardrobe and make sure that it is perfect for you and your belongings.
