5 Amazing Bedroom Design Ideas
When designing and decorating a bedroom, it can be a bit of juggling act to keep it calming, functional and stylish all at the same time. Thankfully, a thoughtfully designed and decorated bedroom is easily achieved by carefully planning everything before you start work. Here are five exciting ideas to help inspire your creativity …
1. Built in Bedhead Walls
Partitioning off a large bedroom helps break the space down into more manageable chunks. Consider building a bedhead which also functions as a partition wall. Use the area behind the half wall as an ensuite, extra storage, as a study or a reading nook.
2. Add Fire!
How about inserting a flame effect fire into a wall within your master bedroom? Perfect for setting the mood, a bedroom fireplace provides interest and light at the same time. You could even consider using a stone wall to help give a natural feel too.
3. Indoor Outdoor Flow
Bringing the outdoors inside is not just for our main living areas. Our bedrooms can be transformed with large windows to emphasise the view or bi-fold doors which open out onto a deck. Floor to ceiling windows are a great choice if your bedroom does not face another building, though you could consider partially frosted glass if privacy was an issue.
4. Built in Furniture
Bedrooms are often sacrificed to give us larger living areas. This can lead to small or irregularly shaped rooms. Having built-in furniture custom made for these rooms makes furnishing and organising the space so much easier. Ideas include cupboards, shelving units, a desk or even a window seat.
5. Walk in Wardrobe
Nothing says luxury than a walk-in wardrobe or dressing room! While having a lot of space to play with is best, it is also achievable for smaller bedrooms too. You could convert some of the room next door into a dressing room area or add to the size of an existing wardrobe.
When designing the interior of your bedroom, keep privacy at the forefront of your mind. Position your bed so that it cannot be seen from the open door, nor by nosy neighbours through the windows. Decorating the walls, floor and ceiling requires the use of colours which are soothing and easy to look at. Neutrals are an ongoing favourite, as are pastels. The final touch is often something luxurious like a fluffy rug on the floor or a cosy blanket over the foot of the bed.
