When it comes to decorating, there is one room that is a real treat to do, the bedroom. Whether you have chosen to spruce up your own master bedroom, a children’s room or you want to transform the spare room into a beautiful guest room following these helpful design ideas will keep your home looking up to date and stylish.
There are lots of factors to consider when it comes to creating the perfect space. Firstly, decide what kind of effect you want your room to have; do you want the space to create a calm and relaxing atmosphere or do you want to design a bright and energising space? Deciding on how you want the room to make you feel will help determine the colour scheme you should choose. If you are stuck for inspiration why not try some of the following design ideas for 2012.
If you like the idea of a bespoke bedroom, vintage style is a good option. Vintage is huge at the moment, whether it is second hand clothing, or old fashioned style photographs, the vintage effect is all over the high street and the fashion magazines. The same vintage look can be applied to your home. A vintage themed bedroom can look subtle, stylish and calming, and is likely to include soft neutral colours such as creams and dusty blues and greens. Decorating a bedroom in a vintage style can be a very cost effective option; you can create a vintage look by re-using or “up-cycling” old or second hand furniture meaning you don’t need to splash out on expensive new furniture.
On the opposite side of the interior design spectrum, bright block colours and crisp lines are 2012s main trend for interior design. Using blocks of bright colour can be a great way of modernising a room which is a bit lack-lustre. If you are unsure of which colours to go for, a safe bet is to stick with primary colours, for example blue, red and yellow. Combine these bright blocks of colour with bold pieces of furniture such as perspex or glass desks, bedside tables or striking light fixtures. This type of design will add a modern twist to outdated rooms. For a touch of really modern living why not opt for a fitted bedroom? As well as looking great, fitted bedrooms are also a great space saver. So, if you are looking for a modern streamlined look and want to hide away all that clutter, a fitted bedroom might be just the thing.
When deciding what style to go for, you will need to take into consideration what the purpose of the room is. Master bedrooms are not just a place to rest our heads, they are havens away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the house. Somewhere to go where we can forget about the days events and truly relax and be ourselves, and so it is important to take this into consideration. Ultimately, how you choose to decorate your room will come down to personality, so choose a style that really reflects your individuality and be brave in your interior design decisions using the best of current trends to help guide you in your decorating.
