Along with the right balance of colours, symmetry, and furnishings, accessories are a great way to make your bedroom look visually appealing.
The bedroom is your private space, a place where you relax after a long day at work. It is a space where you sleep, dress-up, dream, and laze about in. Your bedroom must be decorated in a way that invites you to spend a long time there. Hence, it is essential that the overall ensemble of the room is welcoming.
It is possible to achieve a cosy ambience with the right accents of colour, complementing furniture pieces, and lighting fixtures. To give your bedroom its own personality – and you can help create the right ambience by means of picking the right accessories. In fact, accessorizing correctly is a cornerstone of bedroom design.
In today’s time, accessorizing rooms is not only a trend but, also an affordable luxury that one can indulge in. Though there are several bedroom design accessories available, it is essential that you pick the ones that will accentuate the overall ensemble.
The handy guide to accessorizing the bedroom
* Start with the floors:
The floor can be carpeted or a nice textured flooring can also complement the overall décor. If you choose to have a carpet, get one in a muted colour that does not attract too much attention. If the floor is currently bare, get a gorgeous rug that you can place in the centre of the room. It becomes a veritable centrepiece for the bedroom and elevates the floor from drab to eye-catching.
* Move on to the walls:
Our walls are like a blank canvas waiting to be filled with works of art. Bedroom design principles dictate that if your bedroom furniture is heavy or opulent, the walls must be lightly coloured and bare. Conversely, if your bedroom is starkly furnished, the walls must be decorated to a heavy finish (think dark colours or a rug on the wall). Another way to decorate the wall is to hang exotic canvas prints or edgy wall art to create a visual focus.
* Introduce a pop of colour:
Whether you want to add energy to a gloomy room or calm a chaotic one, colours in your room play a very important role. Not just the wall colour; bed sheets, drapes, furniture, pillows, floor rugs, also add to the colour scheme of your room. Instead of too many colours in the space, try adding a pop of colour in certain spots. For example, a sunshine yellow reading lamp on the nightstand, or an exquisite painting with subtle colours above the bed, will reduce the need to add too many colours everywhere else. Do match your furnishings with the rest of the room’s colours, or your bed will stick out in an unflattering way.
* Look into the light:
The trendiest light fixtures can make your bedroom a beacon of urban class. An interplay of light and shadows adds a mystical look to your bedroom. Picking the right shape, colour and size of the fixture is important. You will need a large fixture for a dominant wall, while smaller lamps work best for side tables and reading nooks.
Accessories are a great way to enhance your bedroom design without the fuss of remodelling. Just follow the tips mentioned above and you will be sorted.
