Over time the bedroom can become tired and dull but it is important that the living space is decorated stylishly. It is the one room in the home which needs to have the right ambience and setting in order to help you get a great night’s sleep.
It doesn’t have to cost the earth to revitalise the bedroom. You can modernise the décor to create a chic, trendy sleeping area whatever budget you have.
Here is an expert guide for the making of a modern bedroom:
• Low Slung Back Beds
More and more people are transforming their bedrooms with low- slung back beds. These are contemporary bed bases that are elevated off the floor without headboards and they are fantastic in rooms with high-ceilings due to their seamless and slick look.
• Wooden Walls
One trend which is rising in popularity is wood clad walls. These give the impression of an exterior build on the interior wall. They make excellent feature walls.
Storage is a vital part of any bedroom and storage cubbies have become really popular. These are storage facilities mounted on the walls in an interesting arrangement. They can form neat display shelves. As well as 3D storage, 3D wall tiles are really popular and affordable. The sculptural surface offers interactivity.
• Feature Ceilings
Many people forget that the ceiling is a core part of the bedroom and it shouldn’t go amiss. Modernise the room with intricate lighting. Alternatively, why not implement LED lighting into the furniture?.
The flooring is paramount in the bedroom. It is the first thing you step onto when you wake up in the morning and get out of bed. Therefore it needs to be cosy and comfortable on your feet. If you prefer hard flooring, an oversized rug is ideal.
2013 is the year for bamboos, exotic hardwoods and cork flooring as they are practical and ecological.
• Walk In Wardrobe
More and more people are installing walk in wardrobes into their bedrooms. The American trend has skyrocketed in popularity in the UK and you can have one, no matter how much space you have available. If the space is small and dim-lit, simply brighten it up with light bulbs.
