The bedroom and bathroom are the two places in your home that you spend the most time in. Therefore it is important to take your time when deciding how to fill those rooms. The first step is to consider your home’s overall style, which is not an easy thing to figure out. When furnishing your home and garden, don’t forget to let your personality come through. You should choose furnishings and decorations that feel natural to you. Since the bed and bath are such important spaces, it is important that you feel comfortable in them. Here are some key details to bear in mind when it comes to each of these rooms.
Bedroom furnishing and decorating ideas:
The major piece of bedroom furniture in this room is the bed. Beyond that it just depends on how much space you have and whether you can include a night stand, a dresser, and possibly an ottoman or love seat. Since the bed is the main piece in your room, you should start with this as the base for your furniture decisions. Bed frames sometimes consist of a simple flat headboard, or a headboard with depth for extra storage. Some beds have built in pullout storage cabinets underneath, while trundles have another pullout mattress for guests. It depends on your basic needs and style, but there is the perfect bed for every different combination. Some bedroom furniture comes in sets so you won’t have to spend time searching for a complementary night stand and dresser.
Once you have the major furniture pieces picked out, you can start to decorate. No matter what style you have chosen, sticking with a color scheme throughout your room and home will help maintain consistency and give it an allover sophisticated look. Pillows and throw blankets are great ways to add color to your bedroom, while hanging picture frames creates an individualistic feel.
Bathroom furnishing and decorating ideas:
While it also depends on how much space you have to work with, there typically isn’t a lot of furniture that goes into the bathroom; occasionally you will have room for a love seat or ottoman. What you do need to focus on is the vanity style, which then determines how you will select the right finish for your bathroom fixtures to match the vanity; like chrome, nickel, brass, or wrought iron. Use the walls to add decorations that balance and bring the vanity and fixtures together.
You should feel happy and relaxed in your bed and bath. Be sure that the color scheme you choose is one that will promote a restful sleep so that it is easy to wake up in the morning and enjoy the day ahead. And take time in making these furnishing and decorating decisions to ensure that your individual style shows.
