Your bedroom is one of the most private places in your home. It's where you spend your sleeping hours and it should be the most relaxing room in your house. Isn't it about time that you put more into your bedroom design to make it your haven from the world where you can feel safe, comforted and relaxed beyond your wildest dreams? After all, it's more than just a good night's sleep that you need to feel energized, refreshed and ready to meet a new day.
While the basics of interior design should be thought of when decorating your bedroom, there is so much more to a great bedroom design than simply colors that soothe, fabrics that feel comfortable against your skin and furniture that makes you feel rich and luxurious. It's often the little things that really make a bedroom your "happy place" and the place where you can go when the world is pushing down on you.
Think about this for a little bit and reflect upon the small things that could make your time in your bedroom all it could be. Perhaps you have a fondness for art. Why not find a supremely beautiful piece of art to hang in your bedroom that makes you happy. Why cheat yourself out of this joy by hanging only the choices pieces of art in your living area? There's no need necessarily to worry about whether things match or go with the decor of the room. If it brings you joy then it fits just right. Maybe it's photos of your family or little trinkets from your life that you want around you. Things from your childhood that most of us put in boxes in storage can bring back emotions on a daily basis. Private memories that bring us joy of remembrance.
In addition, the bedroom is your private space. Why limit yourself to a bed, night stand and chest of drawers to hold your clothes? Think a little outside the box and think about what you really need in your bedroom. Would a nice comfortable chair be nice to sit and drink a cup of coffee on occasion when you simply want to be alone with your thoughts or to read a book in absolute silence? Do you like music? Maybe a sound system to listen to some of your favorite music would be a nice addition to your bedroom.
Lighting is always something that should be taken into consideration when planning any room and your bedroom should be no different. Putting some thought into different lighting designs complete with accent lights that enhance a mellow mood or provide light enough to read without bothering a slumbering spouse might be in order. Maybe some low voltage ambient lighting for either you or your partner to light the way to the bathroom in the middle of the night would be much appreciated.
Thinking things through and taking the little details into account when planning your bedroom design could play big dividend in your life and actually make you a happier and better adjusted person. If nothing else, you might find that your bedroom becomes your favorite room in the house and sincerely your refuge from the world when times are tough. Think about what you want around you to bring you comfort and peace and you'll be well on your way to creating the bedroom of your dreams.
