Does your bedroom need updating? If so, you may need a few bedroom interior design tips to get you started. Bedroom interior design doesn't have to be hard work - with a little imagination you can easily create an individual and stunning look for virtually any size or shape of bedroom.
When you are embarking on a new bedroom interior design project, it's best to start with the planning of your furniture positions. In particular, you will need to decide on the best location for the bed. When you are doing this, take into consideration the following aspects:
Access - if a room has a double bed and two occupants require access to it - don't place it in the corner of a room - allow sufficient clearance at each side. If you have bunk beds - adequate clearance space is required at the top, to allow safe access to the upper bunk.
Power sources, phone sockets & TV aerials - many people now use electric clocks and radios - often they are placed next to the bed on a side table. If you have these appliances, or you have a TV in the bedroom, ensure that the bed is placed nearby to the relevant sockets.
Storage - Most people have stand-alone storage drawers and wardrobes in the bedroom. When you are positioning your bed, always ensure that enough clearance space is left for your other furniture i.e. that drawers and doors can open easily.
Once you have decided on the correct positioning for your furniture, it's time to start with the decorating of your room. Wall decoration is very much a personal choice - many people prefer wallpaper in the bedroom, whereas others choose a simple paint colour. To get a good idea of the colours that match, you can compare wallpaper and paint samples until you get a combination that works for you. Don't forget to match your walls to your existing carpet/other flooring.
Decorations can make a big difference to the end result of a bedroom interior decoration project. Scatter cushions, beanbags, storage baskets, ornaments and prints can add to the overall colour scheme and help to create a theme. However, if possible, try not to use too many different decorations, as the room may look a little over crowded.
Finally, there really are no rules as to what should go in a bedroom, and what shouldn't. You may prefer to keep your computer desk in there, and some people opt store their clothes elsewhere - it really is a case of optimising a bedroom to cater for your individual requirements.
