Beginning Interior Decoration: Bedroom Furniture
Sorting out your new house, or renovating your old one is one of the most exciting experiences you can have with a new house. Deciding on new stuff for your boudoir is often on of the most important parts of this. Lets face it, you spend more time with your furniture than anything else. Here’s a list of dos and don’ts to help you make the most of your bedroom furniture.
Don’t let anyone else (except possibly your husband or wife) influence your decisions. There’s little room for pragmatism in the bedroom. Kitchens and other, more functional spaces are really where practicality is employed.
Do test, test, test. Painting in your bedroom is a tricky business. You may have your favourite furniture, but you’ll want a colour to match it. In general, larger pieces of furniture are better suited to darker rooms. Make sure you test colours on large patches of the wall when painting. Once it’s dried, you can move a variety of bedroom furniture around to test how well it matches.
Do decide with a drink. Never decide on anything in a shop. Always take time out and sit with a coffee, perhaps amongst your favourite bedroom furniture, and make decisions in your own time. This is the cause of most bedroom nightmares.
Don’t settle for less. The bedroom is your sanctuary, and your interior decoration should be perfect. If it needs starting again, then start it again. If your current bedroom furniture doesn’t fit properly, change it. You need to feel comfortable lounging around there.
Do make your favourite colour ‘pop’. This often means that your main colour in the bedroom should be a contrasting colour. If all your bedroom furniture is red, then you may like a tone of yellow that really makes it stand out. This will really make a difference when you want to shift your bedroom furniture around, and help them stand out.
