An elegant bedroom is one of the things that every homeowner dreams of having. After all, the bedroom is where you and other members of the family will retire after a tiring day. You should be as comfortable as possible in the space. How, then, could you live (or sleep) luxuriously without having to inherit a fortune?
Here are four things that you could to get you a step closer to a stunning bedroom. When you’re done with it, you’d fool people into thinking you were the heir to a billionaire when in fact, you just had a few design tricks up your sleeve.
1. Get Yourself a Sliding Barn Door
Sliding barn doors in Australia have become so popular in the past few years. Not only does it have a versatile look, but it can also improve the blandest rooms into a beautiful area. They are also easier to open and manipulate.
Just because an interior element is associated with farms or the countryside, doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate it into a sophisticated interior design plan. In truth, the pieces you choose aren’t as important as you creatively you put them into use and how seamlessly they blend into the design plan.
2. Put Up an Imposing Light Fixture
No matter what room in your house, lighting is an important feature — both for fashion and function. It is important for obvious, functional reasons; but it also greatly affects the look and feel of a room.
For your bedroom, you want a light fixture that is both relaxing and imposing. ‘Imposing’ does not always mean ‘big.’ In fact, you could go for hanging fixtures instead for a more youthful and modern twist.
3. Buy Plush Throw Pillows for Your Couch or Bed
You’d think this is quite arbitrary, but there is just something about throw pillows that puts a statement. The image of overfilled throw pillows in your couch or bed evokes luxury and class. It makes your room look like a hotel, which is a dream for every homeowner out there.
Just imagine a bare couch and compare it with one that has throw pillows. For an even classier vibe, use shimmery pillow cases or ones in solid colours in faux feathers.
4. Keep Your Floor as Empty as Possible
No matter how expensive your things are, it will not matter if your room is cluttered. This is especially true with the floor, which is why you should make sure there are no wires, books or any other thing there.
Of course, you may still have a carpet — this does not count as clutter, but rather, as a design element — but it should be placed strategically and have a classy design or pattern. Don’t choose tacky colours, too. Remember, the most expensive design element isn’t tangible — taste.
That your bedroom should be comfortable is a given. But, it would always be a plus if it were to look impressive as well when guests visit your home. When your personal space and sanctuary could pass as an expensive room in Buckingham Palace, you would be truly able to say you’ve made it in life.
