Whether decorating a new bedroom or replacing all the furniture in your old one, you’ll notice that it doesn’t quite feel complete even when you technically have all the elements of a bedroom – the bed, the side table, the mirror, and the closet – so what’s missing?
Well, all these things aren’t what makes a bedroom cozy and comfortable to live in. And make no mistake, you’ll be spending a lot of time in here. Once everything is done and ready, it’s time for you to start thinking about adding those tiny touches that will really make your interior design look complete.
While these finishing touches will look like adding a bean bag for some and a bit more classic for others, you can certainly get some great tips and ideas online. Keep reading for some finishing touches that might make up for what you’re missing in your bedroom.
The Right Mattress
Your bedroom is nothing if not comfortable, which is why you need to make sure your bed has the right kind of mattress on top of it. The best mattress for you is one that’s comfortable, supports your body at night regardless of what position you like to sleep in, and doesn’t make matters worse if you’re already suffering from sleep deprivation or any sleep disorders.
We suggest you splurge on a new mattress when you change up your room, simply because new mattresses are much more comfortable than older ones, and it might just be the touch your new room needs.
If you have a spacious room with a lot of uncovered floor space, it can end up looking bare and impersonal. Give your room a cozy touch with the right rug – this can be anything from a fuffy brown blanket to a sleek pink one.
We will however suggest against getting light-colored rugs – they’re supposed to go on the floor and a light-colored rug will waste no time in getting dirty. This will in turn only result in you need to wash the rug every other week, which will either cause you to rack up those dry cleaning bills or have you walking around with a dusty rug in your room.
In addition, a rug might not be the best idea if you’re prone to dust allergies or if you have pets who shed a lot – all that stray fur is going to be really hard to get out of there. In that case, you might as well just opt for a beanbag.
If you feel like these suggestions aren’t for you, think about other types of decor that will make a statement instead. From lamps on your side table and statues on the shelves to wall art, tapestries, and posters, no look’s complete without the right decor.
Even if your room is bland and tasteless, you can give your room a certain theme or a look with the help of the right decor. Go for a lot of greenery and plants if you want a tropical theme, and give it a girly vibe with lots of pastels if that’s more your thing.
