Not everyone is a natural when it comes to interior design and decorating. If you feel like you don’t have much style or eye for design, decorating your bedroom can be harder than you might want it to be. A lot of people know what they like, but when they have to decorate a room from scratch, they’re not sure where to start. You don’t have to be a design genius to get your bedroom the way you like it. Keeping things simple is best if you’re a beginner, and you can add more details later if you want to.
Pick a Theme or Style First
Before doing anything, you should choose an overall approach to your room. If you get started without deciding what you want to do, you could end up just making random decisions. Start by picking a theme, a style or a color scheme that will help you to inform your choices. You might decide you want everything to be monochrome. Maybe you want a mid-century modern inspired bedroom. Or perhaps you want to center everything around different stripe patterns. You might even want to create a mood board to start pairing patterns and colors together.
Get a Matching Bedroom Set
Choosing furniture that goes together can be tough. If you’re worried about making the right choices, there’s one way to make sure all of your bedroom furniture goes together. Choose a bedroom set, so that you can get an elegant wooden bed, along with a dresser and nightstand. You will know immediately that everything will look good together in your room. It’s a good idea to measure your room and consider where you’re going to put each piece of furniture first. You don’t want to buy a set that turns out not to fit into your bedroom.
Try Different Patterns and Textures
It can be tricky to do for a beginner, but playing with different patterns and textures should give your bedroom something extra. The key is to go slowly, and avoid buying too many things at once. You don’t want to overdo it by adding too many patterns that end up clashing with each other. It can be easier to try out different textures by using various materials because they can add layers to your bedroom decor without clashing too much or making everything too busy.
Work on Getting the Lighting Right
Light plays an important role in interior design, even in bedrooms where you often have the lights off. You probably have overhead lighting, but you should think about using lamps to add light to other parts of the room. The more light sources you have, the more control you have over the lighting in your room. Lamps also make great accessories and help you to add more color and style to your bedroom. Try putting your lights in different positions to see how it changes things.
You don’t have to be an expert designer to decorate your bedroom. Just take things slowly and work out a plan before making any moves.
