Textures: Texture is often overlooked yet it is vital to add dimension to your room. Textures in the walls, curtains, pillow or carpeting can add a secret dimension to your bedroom design. You can decide whether to go for soft textures that will give your space a sensual feeling or Heavier textures that will provide a warmer and snuggly feel. Try using bed linens that say something about you. Choose a pattern or theme that matches your walls or your furniture. Avoid small, intricate patterns that distract the eye. When it comes to bedding, you want to go big and bold. Your bed is the primary focus of your bedroom.
Lighting: Brightness is directly proportional to your attentiveness. The brighter your bedroom is the more alert you will feel, the darker your bedroom is the more inactive your will become. It is simple philosophy. Therefore it is important to have dynamic preset lighting that can be changed depending on the atmosphere you want to set. Dimmer switches will let you soften the light in your bedroom, creating a restful state.
It is extremely important to create an illuminate balance in your bedroom. The goal is to find the median of both extremes; light in only one corner of the bedroom or fluorescence flooding. You can counter this by setting up centralized ceiling lights that is set geometrically with even spaces between each fixture. This should highlight every inch of your room. Avoid floor lamps since it creates an uneven focus. Take the help of mirrors to reflect light in spaces that may be ignored.
Mirrors: Mirrors if placed properly can be the best optical illusion for any space, creating a vision of endless space. Mirrors can also behave like a window which emphasizes a dynamic view, decreasing the amount of blank space on the walls. Hang a large mirror on one side of the wall or several small mirrors and notice the effect. Your will be quite surprised the difference it makes.
Storage: First make sure the bedroom is free of clutter. In a bedroom you don’t have much space and with the addition of clutter you don’t want to box yourself in with tons of personal items. Try and make sure that you find a proper place for everything in your bedroom. Don’t be afraid to throw stuff away that you don’t use anymore. A bed on average covers up to 42 square feet of space, so why not use space underneath your bed for storage. There are many options available.
You can use clear plastic bags or bins designed for under the bed. Another idea is to make a underbed drawer out of an old dresser drawer by adding a handle and wheels to the bottom. Just make sure the items in the box are also sealed in a bag to protect the items. Any kind of old boxes like hat boxes can also be used. Your bedroom closet can also be maximized for storage space. Before storing in the closet, analyse what you want to access on a daily basis. Try to minimize drawer use in the closet rather hang your T-shirts, sweaters etc. in an open shelf where you can see them at a first glance. Its hard to find such things in a drawer. Use the drawers only for items that don’t fold well, for instance socks, underwears etc. Avoid placing your shoes on the floor because they will probably end up in a mixed pile. Instead keep them in individual cubbies. Take advantage of your high ceilings and thing vertically. Consider remove drywall and creating recessed spaces between the studs. You can also use a headboard with cabinets.
Electronics Vs. Arts: A wide flat screen TV is great for the living room or family room but its doesn’t do much for your bedroom. Overall you should limit the amount of cords running in your bedroom. You don't want the back of your dresser to look like a tangled snake pit. Incorporate bold wall art that will catch your attention. Just pick a few large pieces that don’t force attention to small detail. Avoid crowding the space with too many small pictures and posters otherwise it will make your bedroom seem to busy and cause distraction.
