A Bedroom Interior Design Checklist

What good is a bedroom without the right interior design? Bedroom interiors are like jewels in a crown that make a space shine. Furniture, wall art, cabinets, shelves, cupboards, colours and decorative pieces are must-haves for any bedroom. Every bedroom needs furniture, storage solutions, lighting apart from accessories like rugs, throw pillows, a good display case, a nightstand to complete the look. 

A King Or A Queen?

A bedroom bed is probably an essential piece of furniture you will invest in! Make sure your bed satisfies your needs in terms of safety, comfort, and design. Whether you choose to opt for a classic, modern, or a rustic design, your bed will dominate the room. To give it a statement, team your bed with decorative fabrics (like silks) for some flavour and style, especially if you’re one to keep up with the Joneses. Upholstered beds are great for a modern look while a minimalist wooden bed is ideal if you want to play with colours, materials, and textures in the space.

Spruce Up Your Bedroom With The Right Furniture

Bedroom furniture completes the look of a room as long as it’s not disproportionate to the entire space. A full room typically consists of a bed and a few other pieces of furniture as must have elements. Pick bedroom furniture according to your age group and lifestyle. Bedroom furniture designs bring in elements of comfort and fullness to space. If your bedroom has ample space, then put a few accent pieces. You can place a work table in a corner and a vintage trunk at the base of the bed to amp up the aesthetics. This can also double up as storage for bed linen. A vanity table adds a feminine feel to the bedroom, for the woman of the house to doll up and also bring in some elegance.

Complement It With A Headboard

No settling for boring beds now! Bedroom headboards, available in umpteen textures, patterns and colours, accessorise your bed and your bedroom in ways previously unimaginable. Apart from the comfort and safety they provide, they also play a significant role in varying the texture of the room a little bit and not letting all of it be woody.

Things to consider before interior designing your bedroom accessories

Choose A Wardrobe That’s Right For You

Every bedroom needs proper storage to keep the room clutter-free and make living more comfortable. You can achieve this by adding cupboards to your master bedroom. There are tons of bedroom cupboard designs you can choose from to make optimum use of your space. A floor to ceiling cupboard will maximise storage in your bedroom. Put your suitcases and strollers above the closet and clothing inside. A mirrored bedroom serves a dual purpose in small bedrooms. It saves space and makes the room spacious. A built-in-cabinet is easy to customise, and it looks beautiful too!

How to interior design your bedroom

A Well Decorated Bedside Table

Where do you keep your watch, glasses, and phones? If your bed is the answer, then it’s time you considered a bedside table. Not only is it functional but has the potential to become a decorative piece too. A bedside table, lamp atop is perfect for that night reading binge or to move around in the dark. A well-decorated bedside table changes a room’s atmosphere and brings in the sense of calm and peace. Place an indoor plant for a natural look or adorn it with shiny colourful stones. And if you are a stickler for functional design, then opt for bedside a table with drawers to stash away basics like keys, wallets, and documents.

Face The Day In Style With A Smart Dressing Unit

The kohl in your eyes, the crease in your tie, you check them all in front of your bedroom dressing table, which traditionally houses a mirror, a few shelves for your makeup and accessories and a sitting apparatus. But with time, the old charm of dressing tables has been retained with a few tweaks to the functionalities. You can now have your dressing tables designed in synchrony with the design you choose for your home or bedroom and pair it up with the freshest designs and colours. Also, hidden shelving and pull out stools which save space preserve the sanctity of your bedroom.

Gift Your Bedroom A TV Unit!

After a long hard day’s work, catching up with your favourite soap opera, traversing a bit of international news or at least streaming your favourite web series shouldn’t be a challenge to be taken outside of the bedroom. Bedroom TV Units, hidden or showcased proudly, are the perfect addition to your bedroom for those lazy Saturday nights for Netflix and chilling!

A Study Nook

A book aficionado? Or just someone who likes to have his newspaper ready with his morning coffee? Fret not, bedroom study tables with fantastic lighting fixtures and comfortable yet space optimising sitting options are abundantly available in today’s design market and they up the ante of your bedroom by so much by giving it the persona of an intellectual.

Upgrade Your Bedroom With A False Ceiling

Adding a false ceiling to your bedroom will take your ceiling to new heights. A false ceiling hides flaws and conceals wiring, thereby adding to the design quotient of your bedroom. Not only this, for bedrooms with high ceilings, false roofs reduce the height to level overall dimensions. Whatever the reason, bedroom false ceiling designs are never a bad idea. A layered tray is charming and sophisticated, perfect for a master bedroom. If your flooring is wooden attach wooden beams to your false ceiling. It further adds warmth and brings some rustic charm to your bedroom1. Another way to add a false ceiling is a coffered design – crisscrossing beams that form a grid-like pattern.

Loft It Up!

If you live in a tiny room, then a bedroom loft is a brilliant space-saving solution. It makes for a good sleeping area, a place for wardrobes, and to work in turning your small room into a multipurpose, compact space. Bedroom lofts are stylish and functional, especially for small homes where every inch of space matters. A loft bed, or one where that is at least 30 inches above the floor, adds to storage space in the room as well. The design outlines a bedroom and creates new spots to stash books, clothes, and other essentials. Turn your space into an office loft- add a sim desk, good lighting, and a chair to get on with some work.

Let Your Walls Do The Talking!

Plain walls are passe. Wall design is in vogue, and your bedroom can’t miss out on some spunky decor. Bedroom wall design brings in fresh energy to a room, making it more livable and enjoyable. Opt for 3D wall painting designs if your wall is wide and long. Paint an aqua theme as blue gives a soothing vibe for calm and restful sleep. Play with LED bulbs as it is cost-effective and adds elegance to a white bedroom wall. How about family portraits on your wall? Simple pictures of family members from many generations conjure up a nice nostalgic feeling.

Never Ignore Your Fan!

Bedroom ceiling fans are dull accessories you need not tolerate each time you look up as you lay on your bed! With ornamental ceiling fans and hi-tech silent fan designs creeping up, you can make them a piece of art to show off along with the other elements you so carefully chose to be in your bedroom.

Control The Brightness With Bedroom Shutters

As much as you need the inflow of natural light in your bedroom, controlling the light is also crucial as it affects your privacy and sometimes, sleep as well. Instead of curtains, which require a certain amount of manual effort to be put down and are not very effective in blocking light, blinds or shutters, which are mechanically controlled and can precisely do the work of turning your room dark for a good night’s sleep are a good alternative. Roman, duette, vertical or wooden venetian blinds, you are not short of choices here as well!

Adorn Your Bedroom With The Right Decor

The bedroom represents your traits in ways you may not have imagined! It’s your place to unwind. Keeping it simple and clean is the best bedroom decoration tip any professional will give you. You can adorn your bedroom with a few statement pieces to give it class and oomph. Good lighting enhances the beauty of your bedroom. So make sure to place a task light for a spot for bedtime reading. Play with colours and dream away in an ebb of sea blue and bubbling white bed linen. Or add matching wallpaper for a beautiful backdrop. Does nothing compare to a serene bedroom setting?

Your bedroom is a sanctum of sleep an oasis for rest and rejuvenation, and it is essential to decorate it with the right accessories. These are things that are not only aesthetic but functional too to make your bedroom a well-designed space.
