The bedroom is one of the most important rooms of the home, and it’s somewhere in which you’re going to spend a lot of time. Eight hours in bed every night means that you’re likely to be here a lot – and it’s therefore wise to be sure that this is an environment in which you’re more than comfortable.
Bedroom design is a trend that’s on the up, and more and more people are heading to websites lie Pinterest and others to get some insights into what their bedrooms could look like. This article will help you to explore some of the top trends and to work out how to integrate your bedroom into your personality in a wholehearted and effective way.
Your preferred layouts
First of all, it’s worth thinking carefully about what sort of person you are when it comes to space and storage. If you’re a clean and tidy person, say, think about why that’s the case. Is it because you make the most of storage space, for example? If so, ensuring that there is integrated storage space in the room is probably wise. And if you’ve got a personality that’s closer to messy on the tidiness spectrum, it’s worth thinking also about how this could be best managed. Furniture choices such as clothes rails might be perfect for your needs, while boxes around the bed and elsewhere could also be handy options.
Your sleeping habits
Your sleeping habits may not be the first thing you think of when you come to consider what aspects of your personality are the most important. But they’re actually deeply personal, and psychological in nature. If you’re a natural worrier, for example, you may well have trouble getting to sleep – and if you experience depression, the evidence suggests that you may be at risk of sleeping too much. Integrating these sorts of insights about yourself into your bedroom design is a good idea, and one that many people choose to do when starting the design process.
As a result, integrating the way you sleep into your bedroom design is important. If you’re someone who can’t sleep easily, think about installing something like an armchair with a small, not too bright a lamp, next to it – perhaps for reading, or some activity which doesn’t involve a brain-stimulating screen. That way, you’ll be able to get up and out of bed if you find you’re tossing and turning andthen wait for sleep to come in a relaxed environment. A wealth of information on sleep is widely available on the web and checking out this sleep information is a good way to put into words what your own sleep problems might be – and how you can solve them if needed.
Your color preferences
When it comes to bedrooms, it’s often a space for color preferences to emerge. That’s because there’s something intensely personal about a bedroom: it’s not a space that guests are likely to spend time in, and it’s somewhere that’s seen as a sanctuary by many people. If you want to express your creativity, then, the bedroom walls could be the place in which to do it.
A feature wall is a good way to start, as it means you don’t have to commit yourself immediately to four walls of one striking color. You can experiment with the colors you’ve always wanted to try, and if things don’t look so good once they’re on the walls, you can more easily reverse it than you could reverse four whole walls of the same colors. And the same goes for linen, too.
Do you like plain colors which help to promote a sense of restful sleep? Or do you like vibrant colors which make you feel like you’ve injected some style into the room? By thinking through this sort of question, you’ll quickly be able to get the answers you need and find a design that works for you.
If you’re planning to add some personality to your place, the bedroom is a fab option. It’s somewhere where you are able to put your own stamp everywhere without having to worry about what guests think – which is perfect, especially if you’re a house-proud person. But what does this look like in practice? From considering what your current sleeping habits are to thinking long and hard about your preferred hues for walls, furniture and linen, you can match your personality and your bedroom design effortlessly.
