Start with the bed
The most important element to put into consideration when styling your bedroom is a bed!
After you have successfully procured and installed the bed the next thing to do is gradually add in the necessary pieces: side tables, lamps, bed linen and artwork.
If you’re adding an ottoman to the end of the bed or an armchair to a corner, make sure they don’t crowd the space.
Also it is really important that you don’t crowd your room with unnecessary artifacts so as to create an airy and comfy environment.
Buy good-quality linen
When it comes to bed linen, it pays to get the best you can afford.
You’re lying on it all night, so it’s worth investing in good-quality linen as this can play a huge part in influencing how you sleep
It is very important for you to choose colors that complement the other colors of elements in your room so as to have a generally pleasing and attractive environment
Get moody with lighting
Lighting the bedroom tends to be relatively straightforward.
For those who like to read in bed at night, an angle poise lamp (with an arm or angled) is ideal as you can focus the light on your book.
Always choose lights that are not too bright and not dim as well and also create an avenue for the natural daytime and night time light to reflect into your room
What to avoid
Here are some common bedroom-styling errors, according to a renowned interior designer Ms Blomfield:
Spending all your money on cushions and throws and having none left for the more important items, such as a quality mattress.
Opting for designer bed linen over quality and personal preference.
Putting old inserts into pillowslips and cushion covers, making the cushions and pillows appear pancake flat.
Buying a bed that is too big for the bedroom, leaving no space for bedside tables.
Having messy bedside tables. Use a tray to corral some of your smaller objects.
