It’s the ultimate temptation to curl up and stay in bed on a cold winter morning. While this is a common experience for many people, others find themselves indifferent, because their bedroom lacks any quality or warmth. If you want to come home to a bedroom that invites you into its comforts and that you can’t bear to leave in the morning, transform your boudoir into something spectacular. Bedroom renovations are quite simple, in contrast to revamping an entire kitchen or bathroom. If you think a bedroom transformation may be just what you need, follow our guide and begin creating your masterpiece today.
Be the Centre of Attention
When beginning your bedroom transformation, consider choosing a focal point for the room; something that you adore or that will set the theme for the rest of your makeover. Most people choose to use their bed as the centre of attention. Your bed is often the largest furniture item in the room and allows you the creative freedom to choose between various styles, colour, patterns and textures.
Once you have decided upon your focal point for the transformation, go about choosing a theme that will carry on to the remainder of the room. Your theme will influence your colour choices for paint, flooring and furnishings, so be sure to choose something that is cosy and luxurious.
Setting the Mood
Each room in your house should have its own mood. Other than those of us who are lucky enough to live on the shores of the beach, most people choose to create a cosy and warm feeling for their bedrooms. Base your decisions around the mood you with to create; for instance, choose carpet flooring, rather than tiles or timber look flooring for a more luxurious feel.
Your lighting choice will also play a vital role in achieving the look you want, so be sure to choose something that can be adjusted. LED down lights are a common choice amongst new home builders, as they provide adequate lighting, without taking the quaint and cosy atmosphere from the room. While LED down lights may not provide as much light as fluorescent lights, extra light can easily be added through the addition of elegant floor or table lamps.
The Ultimate Luxury
Adding those special finishing touches to your room will make your transformation complete. If you want a bed that tempts you to never leave, particularly on a cold winter morning, splurge a little a purchase lavish extras such as woollen underlays or toasty electric blankets. Simple touches like extra fluffy pillows and a big cosy quilt will also have you soaking up the warmth and elegance of your new favourite room.
Whether you are building a new home or revamping an older one, you can easily create a luxurious and elegant bedroom. If you are building your new home, talk to your builder for recommendations about various flooring options and other lavish extras, for making your new bedroom truly unique.
