A bedroom is about more than just comfort. It is a representation of you and should embody the luxury you deserve. Bedrooms are often overlooked by people, who may take great care to design their kitchen and living space but neglect their own bedroom. Your bedroom is the first thing you see in the morning and the last thing you see at night, so you need to make sure that it sets the right tone.
Pay Attention to Lighting
Getting the right lighting in your bedroom is the key to making it feel luxurious. A room can have a beautiful design, but without the right lighting, the look and feel can fail to come together. Consider the design and placement of lighting fixtures and free-standing lights. Lighting should also be functional; you need a lot of light in the morning when you get up and low lighting for the evening when you settle down for the night. Having the right levels of light are integral to good sleep and mood.
A cluttered space never feels luxurious. A room could be decorated beautifully, but if there are lots of items on display, unmanageable electrical cords, or general disorder, then it will become difficult to feel luxurious. Consider under-bed storage, an ottoman, and drawers.
Add Some Stylish Furniture
If you have space, a piece of stylish furniture can really bring luxury to a bedroom. A statement piece such as a quirky mirror, nightstand, or chair can really make a room stand out. A chair can be a great way to add style and comfort. Check out this timeless piece from Moleta Munro, it’s ideal for something that makes a statement but is also comfortable. Pieces that appear to be unusual help provide your home with that modern twist – this can sometimes be easier than changing up your entire bedroom.
The colour of the room has psychological effects. This is an important aspect of any room, but perhaps most important in the bedroom, where you need to feel relaxed in the evening and ready to face the day in the mornings. Depending on the space, choosing your favourite colour for wall-paint or wallpaper might not be the best choice.
Consider natural colours, combined with a feature wall to add an element of luxury. Textured wallpaper or a large piece of art can make a room feel elegant.
Windows are a focal point of any room. Therefore, whether you opt for blinds, curtains, or shutters can have a huge impact on the feel of your room. Even the pattern, texture, and fabric can make a difference. If you have a small space to work with, consider blinds as they keep the space open. However, if you have a big bedroom, then curtains can help to add luxury to a room.
A Beautiful Bed
When most people stay in a hotel room, the first thing they check is the bed. The bed is perhaps the most important aspect of a bedroom, a good bed results in better sleep, which has an impact on every other part of your life.
A comfortable bed with fresh linen and exquisite fabrics that you are excited to get into each evening is one of the best investments you can make for yourself. You should also take the time to make your bed each morning. Make sure that when you go into your bedroom to settle down for the evening, the bed is inviting. It should feel luxurious, and its colours should fit with the overall tone of the room.
Cushions are also a great way to add some elegance and make your bed stand out (even if you have to throw them onto the floor to sleep). Feature precisely layered decorative pillows. One good tip is to ensure that they take up less than a quarter of the length of the bed.
Lastly, a headboard is also a great way to add an instant element of elegance. The shape, size, fabric, pattern ad texture all have an impact.
Fragrance and Flowers
Having plants in your bedroom has a lot of benefits, such as cleaner air and improved focus. They also add a wonderful natural scent to a room. But not only do they have a functional purpose, but they also brighten a room and make it welcoming and tranquil. Consider simple single flowers, to large flower bouquets or large green leafy plants.
What artwork you choose says a lot about your personality. Have a piece in your room that you enjoy looking at and brightens your mood.
Work to Your Rooms Strengths
There are many ways to elevate a room and make it feel luxurious. However, never take the natural character of a room for granted, sometimes the most elegant rooms are the ones that stay true to their original architectural elements. Perhaps your bedroom has high ceilings, a big window, or a magnificent fireplace. Consider what makes your room beautiful already and work with that.
