Moving to a new house means redecorating everything from scratch. One of the most important rooms in a house is your bedroom, your most personal and private space, and decorating it can be an exciting project. After all, this is another opportunity for you to experiment with cool color schemes and awaken your inner interior designer. However, things can get tricky if you have less space to work with and don’t want the room to look crammed.
If you’re not careful, going overboard may cause your bedroom too look cluttered and nobody wants that! Rest assured, there are plenty of space saving decorating ideas that you can use to make your friendly abode look more welcoming. Here are a couple of great bedroom decorating ideas to make the most of your space:
Make the Most Out of Storage Space
Before you start decorating, try getting rid of old books, CDs or clothes that you might never use again. If possible, consider moving some of your stuff to the storage facility so that you have ample space to work with. Once that’s taken care of, you can initiate your project.
Opt for a floor-to-ceiling fitted unit or book shelf that you can use to stuff your belongings in. These fitted units will allow your room to look less cluttered and more organized. Use this space to stack up books, lamps, and personal items. Don’t forget to include a few plants or cute art pieces for a pop of color. Alternatively, you can also invest in a bed that has a storage unit underneath. This space can be used to store winter clothes and boots that you might not need for a couple of months. However, be sure to pack everything in separate bags if you don’t want to damage your belongings. Also, try to take expert advice during the process of moving, especially if you are a long distance mover, so you don’t end up damaging your furniture or other belongings or making any mistakes that might double your labor. Try askig Alexa, “hey Alexa, tell me the name of a movinng company near me” and you’ll probably geet a list of professional movers.
Light is Your Best Friend
Another cool decorating idea is to make the most out of natural light. Avoid opting for bulky window treatments that’ll block natural light and make the room appear smaller than it already is. Another tip is to completely ditch the idea of curtains and opt for roller blinds instead. Not only are blinds easier to manage but you’ll also have more control in terms of how much light enters your room.
If necessary, consider pushing your bed up to the window if you want to utilize the center of the room. In this case, you can opt for vertical blinds for a more organized look and to block daylight. Or leave the blinds open when you’re reading in bed.
Don’t be afraid to go bold with exciting colors and abstract designs. It’s your bedroom after all which means it can be as bright as you want it to be. Balance the quirkiness of the room by toning down other areas. For instance, if you’ve got an insanely bright colored funky rug with a unique texture, make sure the walls are painted in light, neutral colors.
The key here is to balance the overall look so that your room doesn’t look too overly done. Know when to stop and don’t be afraid to ask your friend to give you their expert (or novice) opinion and ideas.
Play it Safe with Black and White
If you’re out of ideas and are tired of procrastinating, play it safe by going for an overall black and white look. This timeless theme is perfect for your minimal bedroom as long as you let natural light enter the space and work its magic. In this case, we advise you to keep clutter to a minimal and clear the room as much and as often as possible, though a couple of plants should be fine.
Shift the Extra Stuff Somewhere Else
You don’t need a work station in your room! Your bedroom should be a relaxing space where you can unwind and relax. So if you have a small desk or a large entertainment system set up, consider shifting it somewhere else. Doing so might actually help you sleep better because of limited distractions and we’re sure you’ll be able to do wonders with the extra space.
