Your bedroom is your refuge, a place where you can escape the stress of the day and relax and recharge your batteries. However, it is hard to feel very relaxed when your bedroom is a mess of mismatched furniture and decorations without a really related theme or style.
However, creating a more luxurious and relaxing bedroom doesn’t have to break the bank. You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on expensive designer furniture to get a more luxurious look. If you take what you have, make a few tweaks, and maybe add a few extra details, it can transform your bedroom from drab to fabulous, even on a tight budget.
1. Interference suppression
Nothing about clutter says “luxury”. The first step in creating a more luxurious space is to clean and tidy up your bedroom. This means putting away the piles of clothes you’ve been wanting to reach for weeks (and eventually bringing that donation box to goodwill), piles of books, papers, and anything else lying around. Clear away your bedside table and dresser and remove anything you no longer need or use. If you have to, grab some pretty baskets or containers to hold your belongings and keep your room neat and tidy.
2. Overtake your bed
You spend more time in your bed than anywhere else in your room. Shouldn’t it be the most luxurious place? If your old mattress is sagging and stained, you probably won’t get the best sleep. So invest in a new one. Consider an affordable bed in a box or a durable one Latex mattress, for a comfortable sleeping surface that helps you sleep better. High quality beds are also the key to a luxurious bed. Look for sheets made of soft Egyptian or Supima cotton for the softest bedding or treat yourself to high-quality linen sheets that keep you cool all year round. You can often find affordable versions in discounters or online. A fluffy duvet (with a soft cover) and a rich-looking blanket made of velvet, faux fur or a chunky knit complete your royal bed.
3. Decorate the walls
White walls are usually not associated with luxury. So if you can, paint your room a sophisticated, relaxing shade like gray, light green, or blue. If they are not already there Add crown barsthat add sophistication and luxury to the room almost instantly. While real molded parts are the best option, self-adhesive molded parts easily look the same and can be removed if you want to redecorate them later. Hang up dramatic works of art (black and white photos are always a good choice) and use mirrors to reflect light and add depth to the room. A common designer trick is to hang elegant mirrors over the bedside tables. A fancy mirror with an interesting shape or an interesting frame makes a big impact with minimal effort.
4. Choose One Statement Piece
The whole idea behind a statement is to draw attention to it. Hence, if you are making your bedroom luxurious, you will want to choose a statement piece like a headboard or a fabulous chair to act as the focal point and make everything else easier. For example, if you go for a velvet-covered statement headboard, choose a less luxurious looking chair with clean lines so it doesn’t compete with the statement piece.
5. Add expensive looking details
The accessories and details you choose for your bedroom can add to the luxurious look – and most don’t have to be expensive. For example:
Use subjects for organization. An inexpensive tray (even one from the discounter, which is painted with gold or silver) for your perfumes or lotions ensures that the room fits together better.
Add green. Plants, whether a lush potted fern or fresh flowers in a pretty vase, can be done immediately Add interest and luxury to your bedroom. Don’t you have a green thumb? Artificial plants also work (remember to wipe them off).
Update hardware. By adding new knobs or drawer pulls to your dresser or bedside table, you get an instant upgrade. Replacing the door handles on the door and cabinet can also mean inexpensive luxury.
Use pillows. Take a close look at each luxurious bedroom and you will see pillows – many of them – on the bed. Opt for overfilled pillows of various sizes and shapes, but don’t go overboard. A good rule of thumb is to cover only a quarter of your bed with pillows.
Change the lamp. Throw away the standard ceiling light in favor of a more dramatic light. Just make sure it matches the size of the room and the rest of your furniture so it doesn’t look out of place.
Creating a luxurious bedroom doesn’t have to mean spending thousands of dollars or hiring a professional decorator. If you’re looking for soft, cuddly fabrics, organizing everything, and adding small details, this can have a big impact on making your room a true haven.
