Master the Art of Bedroom Design

Every once in awhile it’s nice to do something for ourselves and one of the greatest things you can do for yourself is designing the perfect bedroom. Think about it – you likely spend a good chunk of time in the bedroom, for several reasons. High on that list of reasons come relaxation and rest. Bedrooms are our safe havens; our calm in the storms. Having one that reflects your (and your spouse’s, if applicable!) style will help create a more centering and relaxing spot in your home. Plus, you can do it for cheaper than you think!

First things first, incorporate your aesthetic (or aesthetics). If it’s you and you alone, you’re free to do whatever you want, whether it be a room full of clown paintings (*shivers*) to a sleek, modern design. If you have a partner, there’s going to be some give and take though. Either try to find middle ground or decide on an eclectically designed space that incorporates both of your preferred styles.

Next up, slap some paint on those walls! There is NO better way to brighten and re-freshen a room than with a new coat of paint. It’s one of the most inexpensive ways to make a dramatic change to any space. If you’re having trouble deciding on a color, find something in the room for inspiration. Just make sure it matches and make sure the paint really, really matches the paint chip. We know someone who ended up with a Pepto Bismol pink office instead of a rose office because of this…true story.

Remember that accessories are your friends. There are hundreds (nay millions!) of inexpensive ways to accessorize a room. Rugs, throw pillows, sheets and a cozy comforter are quick and inexpensive ways to add extra warmth, color and beauty to your master retreat. Likewise, art painted by friends, a wall of framed photography or books, or a cool piece of furniture for a side table, etc., can make the eclectic look come together!

Really important though? You need to get a new mattress. How long have you been sleeping on that mattress? Go on, we’ll wait while you count back through the years…that long, huh? If your mattress is more than 7 years old; shows visible signs of wear (it’s dipping, has lumps, the interior is exposed, etc.); you get a better night’s sleep ANYWHERE but your own bed (sofa, dog house, wherever); or you wake up with stiffness, numbness, or aches, then your mattress has stopped supporting you. It’s time to get a mattress that has you feeling like your on a cloud (or rock, if that’s your preference), so you can wake up feeling like a million bucks. If you absolutely can’t afford a new mattress at the moment, at least upgrade what you’ve got with some memory foam or mattress pad, okay?

Make Your Bedroom WOW!

We can all use a little new in our lives from time to time – a new article of clothing, a new hairstyle, you get what we mean. Sometimes it’s the small but sometimes you want to go a bit bigger and have a major makeover in an area of your life. There’s one area you may have overlooked though – your bedroom! Sometimes it’s easy to miss how our bedroom design might be a little old or a little stale with how little actual time is spent in there (awake anyway) so we’ve come up with a list of some of the top bedroom designs around.

Why not go eclectic? With eclectic you can’t go wrong as you’ll be choosing from various styles and sources. You can make your bedroom into whatever you want while tying it all together with a central color or theme. Maybe your main color will be blue with touches of pink or maybe the one thing tying it all together will be a nod to your love of music – whatever you choose, it’ll work!


Or maybe you’re more of a romantic at heart. A romantic bedroom uses colors designed to make the space feel more intimate while often featuring a more feminine touch such as draperies.


You can also go contemporary with sleek furniture, solid colors and chic furnishings.


Finally, one more of the top bedroom designs is the modern look. Go minimal with neutral colors for this look.
