As a room we spend a lot of time in, we want your bedrooms to be a place of serene sanctuary. Our choice in the colours, flooring and lighting all play an important part in ensuring our bedrooms are a place of rest and relaxation. Here are some tips and tricks on how to design a space that is not only both comfortable and stylish but a room that inspires you to get up and conquer the day.
A Mix of Natural and Artificial Lighting
While big windows are great for letting ample amounts of sunlight in during the day, at night we want want to create a cozy and relaxing space to unwind. Layer lighting is the perfect way to ensure that there is a sufficient amount of light for any task. Dimmers are the perfect inclusion to a bedroom as they are multifunctional, and are a great way to transition into sleep mode. At full brightness, the light lends itself to general lighting while a low dimmer can set the mood for the bedroom. Accent lighting is also a great inclusion, as it can act as both a feature piece and ambient lighting.
Adding Colour to Create an Atmosphere
Colour should be one of the first steps taken when designing a bedroom, as colour plays an important role in creating an atmosphere for the space. Choosing the right colour will ensure more natural light is brought into the room during the day as well as promoting rest and relaxation at night. Opt for a calm and muted colour palette or include a feature wall consisting of soothing colours.
Choosing the Right Flooring
While carpet can be the obvious choice in a bedroom due to its comfortability, hardwood, laminate and vinyl flooring is a classic look that will continue to be in style for many years to come. Hardwood, laminate and vinyl are also an easy styling choice, as a rug and new decor can make the space look continuously new. However, as a bedroom is a space that does not experience a lot of traffic, choosing a luxurious carpet is perfect for making a bedroom feel warm and cozy.
