When you’re ready to re-decorate your bedroom, there’s a vast amount of furniture for you to choose from once you decide what style or theme you want to go with. You’ll need to select the colors you want to use as well as the type of furniture that will fit in with the theme that you’ve chosen. If you have a partner that shares the room with you, you may want to co-ordinate with that person so that you’re both on the same page with the choices.
Something important to consider is that when you go to buy bedroom furniture is to not feel as if everything you buy has to match. Feel free to mix oak, mahogany, pine and ash furniture pieces and you’ll see just how beautiful that eclectic can turn out to be. If you’re trying to achieve a rather romantic look in your bedroom, try French Style and painted furniture.
These pieces can be easily paired with darker and more modern pieces. Make a scrapbook of your favorite pieces of bedroom furniture and then set about putting these together in a way that works.
Various shades of grey are rather popular whether it’s used on your bedroom walls or in one piece of furniture. This can be an armchair or a bed that’s been upholstered. Try combining a large dark wooden bed with light colored linen. This works to be a beautiful contrast. If you want to paint your walls something bright and bold or dark, you may be worried that it will make your bedroom too dark. If you use a high gloss paint, it will reflect lots of light and bring your room back to life.
If you’re trying to save some money, you can use concrete floors and polish them to a high shine. Then, place a light colored rug in the center of the room. This will add warmth to the room without costing you an arm and a leg. Using this type of flooring may even leave you enough money in the budget to add underfloor heating.
Last, but not least, when you’re planning your new bedroom, you can find free online room planners to test out your ideas. These will show you what your plans will look like in reality.
