The bedroom is one of the most important rooms in your home. Not just a place to rest your head, but an important escape from the stresses of everyday life. When it comes to redecorating your bedroom, you need to get the basics right the first time. So, what are the 3 main elements to consider?
Wallpaper Or Paint?
Wallpaper has made a recent resurgence in popularity. Designer looks can now be achieved for a reasonably low cost. From reproductions of classic designs to bold patterns, there are options for every budget. Alternatively, you may want to paint the walls. This will give you the freedom to change the colour of your room with little fuss.
You may prefer to tackle the decoration yourself, but walls are rarely as simple as they look. If you haven’t tried hanging wallpaper or painting walls before, or simply don’t have the time, it may make more sense to hire a professional. Before you decide, work out how much the project might cost.
You’ll need to calculate the price of materials and get quotes for the work involved. For instance, quality paint is more expensive but will require fewer coats. And you may also find hourly rates for painters and decorators in your area vary, depending on demand and reputation.
Choosing A New Bed
When choosing a new bed, it’s easy to think bigger is better. But this is not always the case. How much floor space do you have? Will a King or Super King size bed fit in the room? What other furniture needs to be accommodated?
Don’t forget; the mattress is just as important as the frame. Mattresses vary from soft to very firm and can be made from memory foam or pocket sprung. A good night’s sleep will count on the right mattress. Trying the different options instore makes good sense, although most companies now offer a trial period to make sure you’re happy with your purchase.
The final element when redecorating your bedroom may not be so obvious, but lighting is crucial to creating the right ambiance. There are so many options when it comes to lighting, and when we think of mood lighting we tend to think of lamps. Don’t forget though, there are more stylish ideas that are just as functional but eye-catching too. A neon sign is a different approach to mood lighting that will look good in your bedroom and will also provide the mood lighting that you’re looking for.
Having one central light in the room has its drawbacks, especially if the light switch is situated by the door. No one likes stumbling about the last thing at night or first thing in the morning trying to find the light switch. For this reason, bedside lighting is a must-have. Through the use of lampshades or soft glow bulbs, you can create the perfect lighting to help you relax and wake up naturally.
