The primary function of the bedroom is a place where people sleep and rejuvenate. There’s a pretty sound argument that because of the importance of sleep and rest, the bedroom is the most important room in the house. Each bedroom serves this same purpose, regardless of the occupant; that said, it is absolutely crucial that the bedroom is suitable for the person who sleeps in it. From bedroom furniture to accessorizing, here are some general tips to consider when decorating the bedrooms in your home.
The guest bedroom is probably the easiest bedroom to decorate. When you decorate your guestroom, you are aiming to make it comfortable to a variety of people. In order to do this, you want to keep it neutral and keep it simple. Most people find earth tones to be relaxing. You can easily incorporate beiges, browns, and tans into a successful guestroom color scheme that includes walls, linens, and décor. When it comes to bedroom furniture, all guests could use a comfortable bed, a nightstand with a reading light, and a small dresser. Usually a guestroom is a smaller room, so you don’t need to clutter it with furniture. Just remember: simplicity and neutrality work well to provide comfort to all, and that is your goal in the guest bedroom.
A more difficult bedroom to decorate is your child’s room. Regardless of the age of your child, you want to find bedroom furniture that is durable, and preferably will last the duration of your child’s tenure in your home. Granted, if your baby is two months old, you’ll obviously need to refurnish at some point. Nonetheless, try for dressers, nightstands, and storage units that will last through adolescences. Also try to keep walls and linens as neutral as possible while remaining aesthetically pleasant to the child. One major goal is to keep the bedroom furniture and walls in tact; allow the major decorative elements to be the accessories because regardless of all else, the accessories are those things the child will pick out and the child will change throughout his/her youth.
Finally, we get to the master bedroom. This is the bedroom that is most pleasant to decorate. It is your room, and you know your likes and stylistic preferences. Remember that this is where you unwind and relax, so make comfort your priority. Select bedroom furniture that is durable, comfortable, and aesthetically pleasing. Remember that it’s okay to mix and match pieces from various collections. Choose color schemes that make you feel at ease, and select art and décor that also evoke rest.
