Creating the Perfect Bedroom Space
When it comes to renovating and redecorating, the bedroom can often be forgotten. We spend a lot of time focusing on the common areas because they get more traffic, but it is important to remember the space that is solely yours. You spend a lot of time in your bedroom, so it is important that it feels special to you. Creating the perfect bedroom space can help you feel relaxed and get more sleep.
5 Top Tips for Creating the Perfect Bedroom Space
1. Plan Ahead
Making a plan before you start creating your ‘perfect bedroom space’ is a must if you aim to be satisfied with the end result, and especially if you are working with a small space.
Before you start you should make a list of the things that you want to change. Consider whether your current bedroom space is too dark, or indeed to bright, too noisy, or too cluttered. You should also consider what your personal style is and how you can reflect that in your bedroom. Some people prefer light and airy, but others prefer darker and cozier. If you know your style, then stick to it and don’t get sidetracked.
Your lifestyle will play a big role in how you design your bedroom. If you do other activities like watching TV or working at a desk in your bedroom, then you also need to take that into consideration.

2. Declutter and Organise
Before you even get started redesigning your bedroom, you need to consider if there are ways you can free up space by decluttering and organising. Sometimes our bedrooms can become accidental storage rooms, and that is going to make it hard to create a special retreat just for you. Get rid of everything you don’t need and find storage solutions for the things you are keeping. Clean up the space, and then you will be able to redesign it.

3. Design Choices
Once you start making design choices, you should start with the walls. The colour you paint your walls will determine the overall feel of the room. Small rooms can benefit from being painted a lighter shade to make them seem brighter and bigger. If you want to focus on creating an ideal sleeping environment, then a darker color that will help you drift off at night may be better. You may even want to add some texture by exploring the panelling trends of 2021.

Next, you should think about the windows. You want to be able to let in natural light during the day, but you also want to make sure you can sleep well at night. The right window coverings will help you achieve both goals. Blackout curtains can be found in many different designs and patterns to match your aesthetic. Open them during the day to let in light and block out light when it is time to sleep.
