One of the most exciting redecorating projects you can ever do to your house is to give your bedroom a major overhaul. The reason behind this is because you have more free rein over your bedroom. As this is the part of the house that only you will get to stay in, you can personalize your bedroom any way you want – unlike other parts of the house, where you will also have to consider the comfort of your other guests who might come over for a get-together.
However, while you can unleash your creativity and stretch it as wide as humanly possible, there are also certain limitations that you need to set just to make sure that your bedroom is a safe and secure place to stay in, even for yourself. While these are not to be strictly followed, these are good guidelines to keep in mind so that your room is livable, while at the same time, unique and comfortable.
One of the most major expenses that you will have to invest in when it comes to reinventing your bedroom is bedroom furniture. These are some of the most expensive pieces you will have to pay for, but if chosen wisely, will serve as a great and worthwhile investment to last you for years. This is why you have to be careful in choosing the right bedroom furniture for your room.
This is a guide on how to create the perfect bedroom with your choice of furniture. Keep in mind that these are only questions that you should ask yourself, and your choices and answers will determine the outcome of the overall bedroom design. Take a look at the questions and see for yourself if you can answer them now – if you can put them all together and they all work cohesively, then you’ve got yourself a grand bedroom design.
What mood do you want to set? People have different ideas and opinions about what a room should be. While some want a room that is light and cheery, others would prefer something mellower and darker because it helps them relax better. What type of room would you want to have? What emotions do you want to feel while staying in it? Do you want to be relaxed, mellow, happy, or excited?
What is your personality like? One of the must-haves in a room design is that it fits the personality of the person who will be staying in it. Evaluate yourself as a person and extract certain key characteristics that you would also like your room to emulate. This will help you narrow down your choices of bedroom furniture, as only a handful of these will be able to fit your requirements.
How large do you want your bedroom furniture to be? Depending on the size of your room, you need to choose which types and sizes of bedroom furniture to buy and install. While some are fortunate enough to have spacious rooms that have lots of free area to put furniture in, others are of a more limited size and will not offer as much space. If you belong in the second category, chances are that you will have to be much pickier about your choices, as you will be able to only fit a fewer amount in your room.
Do you want your bedroom furniture elegant and stylish, or simple and functional? There are people who prefer a more clean-cut design for their bedroom furniture, as they are only after functionality and practicality. For these types of people, they may want to look into bedroom furniture made out of oak – oak bedroom furniture is very classy, sleek and simple, but at the same time emulates subdued elegance. However, there are people who would like their bedrooms to look luxurious, sophisticated and stylish. Maple, cherry, and walnut bedroom furniture would work better for these kinds of people. These come in rich shades of brown and amber, and change in color over time, in shades that are just as rich. These are perfect for those who are looking for a stylish bedroom that they will feel totally secure and comfortable in.
How much is your budget, and how far are you willing to stretch it? Once you are clear on which types of furniture you would like to look into, give yourself a budget and give it a ceiling allowance – meaning, how much higher you are willing to pay if you decided to go premium and pay for value. There is nothing wrong with being flexible with your budget; in fact, this is a good thing as you may find something on the market that is just slightly over-budget and yet seems to be worth the price and investment. As much as possible, stick to your budget though, and only consider stretching it when you are completely convinced that the furniture is a really, really good buy.
These are just some of the questions you need to cover in order to recreate the perfect bedroom at a reasonable cost. Choosing your bedroom furniture is not just about the shades, hardwood type, and sizes. It’s also about weighing the costs and deciding whether or not the investment is worth it, and if it’s not, moving on to the next option.
This brings us to the importance of canvassing – we cannot stress strongly enough how important it is to canvass and do your research in advance. Do not go on a hurried visit and decide on an impulse buy. This is a big risk to take on something that is relatively expensive. Make sure that if you are shelling out big money, it is worth spending on. Just think of it as a long-term investment.
Lastly, don’t forget to work out the details of the offer you are taking up. Make sure that it includes service repairs and a warranty; otherwise you may end up buying faulty bedroom furniture that you cannot even replace.
