Get Started: 5 Tips in Bedroom Design

Would you describe your main bedroom as a dream–or a nightmare? Maybe somewhere in between? If your primary bedroom has been waiting patiently for its makeover, now’s the time. We have 5 tips that will get you motivated to design the bedroom you’ve always wanted. Discover how a dreamy bedroom can have an impact on your everyday life. Let’s plan the perfect bedroom for you.  

1. The Simple Life

One mistake homeowners make is complicating the bedroom space. After all, your bedroom should be a very simple space. Avoid creating a multi-purpose room by removing unnecessary items and furniture that are taking up space. Clutter can create stress & anxiety–the last thing your bedroom design needs. If your room doubles as a “work from home” space, that’s ok. As long as the office area has a designated area, and you’re putting work away at the end of each day.

2. Let it Flow

Your bedroom should be open and airy and simple to move around. Arrange the furniture in a way to keep walkways clear. Your large bed should be away from the door to allow for pathways leading to the en-suite bathroom, closet and the dressers. Let the space flow.

3. Design Custom Windows

The windows should be an important piece of your bedroom makeover. To achieve the ideal sleeping environment your bedroom needs both light control and privacy. Evaluate your bedroom throughout the day to find out what custom features you may need in window treatments. This way you’ll learn if blackout shades or room darkening shades are necessary for ultimate comfort.

Smart shades are an incredible upgrade to your morning routine. You’ll love the idea of scheduling your room darkening shades to adjust at certain times of the day without lifting a finger. You can set them to remain closed until the alarm goes off, and then stay open until the Texas sun gets too strong and begins to heat the bedroom. Then, schedule them to close to keep it cool and comfortable. Smart shades are convenient and provide energy efficiency benefits as well. 

4. Level Up with Lighting

A dream bedroom makeover should first prioritize sleep, but there’s so much more to it than that. Now that your bedroom is your favorite room in the house, you’ll be spending more time there. You may find yourself reading a good book, enjoying a cup of tea or binging that new series. Whatever the activity may be, you’ll need levels of lighting to make the room function. A table lamp, wall sconces or a designer chandelier can all exist together in the space and add to the atmosphere. Levels of lighting are an important detail in the design of your master bedroom.

5. Make it Your Own

This is the fun part. Style it up! Your primary bedroom makeover deserves the spotlight. Do this by incorporating current style elements like an incredible feature wall or a fresh, new color palette. Maybe a hydration station or replacing your dated bedroom furniture is your dream come true. The goal is for the space to act as a retreat and lift your spirits.
