Your bedroom is the most personal and private room in your house, the room you relax in and sleep in, which is why it is important that this room is decorated exactly to your liking.  Everyone’s taste is different, people prefer different colour schemes, different pieces of furniture, but despite this the objective remains the same, to create a room you can completely relax in. If you are thinking about redecorating your bedroom take some time to consider some things before you start instead of just jumping in, this will help you to create a bedroom that is absolutely perfect for you.

Some of the things you should consider include:

What theme do you want for your room? Every interior design has a theme to it, this could be a minimalistic feel, a modern theme, a contemporary twit.  It doesn’t matter which theme you select or how you choose to design your room, but thinking about it beforehand like this will enable you incorporate this theme into every design aspect of your room.

What colour scheme? The theme you chose for your room may determine or at least influence this for you, for example a minimalistic feel usually requires light colours and plain patterns and shades. However, there are some themes that allow you to be more creative with colour, so if you want a colourful room that has the wow factor, think about this when you are choosing your theme.

What furniture: the likelihood is you already have some bedroom furniture, so first you need to decide what you are going to keep and place in your newly designed bedroom and what can be thrown away/sold/donated. After you have done this take a look at what furniture you have to go back into the room, the design and feel of this furniture may determine what theme you ultimately choose. For example, furniture that is rustic and heavy looking would be perfect for an old-fashioned theme but completely unsuitable if you are going for a minimalistic theme.

When you design and redecorate your room is important to keep in mind that you need to live in it, so you need to have enough storage for clothes, have somewhere to sleep, be able to see what you are doing during the darker hours of the day, etc.  Make sure your room not only looks good but it is also completely comfortable and can be utilised entirely as a bedroom.   Most importantly, reflect your personality through the room, this is your living space and now is the time to put your stamp on it.
