Your bedroom is due for an upgrade. Though they are a habit now, you have become accustomed to workarounds and inefficiencies in your bedroom’s design that because it seems easier to compensate in the short term than exerting the effort to overhaul the space or make significant changes. At least, this is how it feels. In fact, reinvigorating your bedroom can be as straightforward as updating your bedroom set.
Let’s start with style. Does your bedroom even fit your personal style anymore? Over time, your style preferences shift and your lifestyle requirements change, too. This means that without periodic updates, your interior design can lag behind and begin to make you feel less at home in your own space. It can seem overwhelming to simply select a style, however, with hundreds of options to choose from. Begin by simply listing your own preferences with regard to color and texture and form. Break down stylistic elements into concrete aspects of furniture. Do you prefer sleek lines and angles or smooth curves? Do you gravitate toward warm or cool tones? (Your wardrobe may provide some insight here if you are uncertain.) Considering your own style preferences first is the best way to ensure you are not thrown off course as you begin your own hunt for the optimal bed set for you.
Part of identifying the best fit, of course, is considering the fit. The arrangement of your bedroom furniture makes a big difference in how you interact with it. Easily accessible shelves are more likely to be fully utilized, for instance. Make certain to measure your room and consider the shape of the space. Smaller or narrow floorplans introduce their own challenges. In these cases, it often makes the most sense to look specifically for complex furniture sets, also known as multifunctional sets. Essentially, these bedroom sets combine functionality so that each piece performs more than one role. Your bedframe, for example, may also be extra storage space or even a bookcase. Your dresser may fold out into a side table or desk. Combining functions reduces the total number of furniture pieces taking up space and helps keep even small bedrooms feeling open and airy.
Many multifunctional bedroom sets are even customizable, meaning you can match them to your space. A loft ladder is often designed to be installed on either side of the bed, increasing its versatility and maximizing the options for arranging your space. Of course, multifunctionality only makes sense if each of those functions is accessible. Plan an arrangement that allows for the full extension of drawers and does not force different functional elements to compete. This is often one of the trickier aspects of interior design. If you can, tape off your space based on the detailed specifications available for each bedroom set and know in advance exactly where each piece will belong. Once you receive your free delivery, you want to be able to move each piece as little as possible to keep your energy for focusing on the fun parts of your redesign, like décor!
Effective interior design is actually about identifying a few key pieces that will orient the room. So long as the remaining furnishings all fit reasonably well together, meaning they hold to the same basic style and color palette, they will not distract from these primary points but enhance them to give the entire room a sense of cohesion. One reliable way to guarantee this is with a set. This is where comfort originates, in feeling a soothing awareness that the room is a complete whole without being overcrowded or busy. This does not mean discarding accessories altogether. Instead, it frees you up to play with different design options. You might lean into soft angles and warm tones by introducing some textured throw blankets for the end of the bed, for instance. If you have a favorite work of art, it can serve as a great focal for any space: the bedroom is no exception.
