A messy and disorganized bedroom is not conducive for a good night’s sleeping. That’s why the ultimate goal of designing a bedroom is to make it more peaceful so you can come home every day, cosy up, and get your most deserved rest.
In this piece, we’re going to lay out some tips and the step-by-step process on how you can design, rearrange and turn your bed into a designer-approved space.
1. Declutter, declutter, declutter
We can’t stress enough how important it is to declutter your room first when rearranging the whole bedroom. The idea of decluttering is to start with a clean slate. Keep in mind that a bedroom must be a place where you’ll snuggle up and rest. So it has to be as perfectly organized and serene as possible. With all the mess you got right now, it will be a tall order to do that.
So get some boxes and decide what you’ll keep, throw away, donate or sell. Come on, it’s about time to get rid of the toys that you had since you were a kid!
Keep only the necessary things that you’ll need to make your room clutter-free, and therefore conducive for a great sleep.
2. Make some sketches of your floor plans
You don’t have to be a great artist to create a floor plan that will work best for your room. The key here is to size everything up and make a floor plan from scratch.
Keep in mind that you don’t have to stick to just one plan. You can always sketch several plans out, then decide which will work best for you.
This process will definitely save you a lot of energy since it’s the smarter way to do it. If you try to arrange your bedroom head-on, without any planning, you’ll spend your time and effort mostly on trial and error, without accomplishing anything.
3. Put the bed in its rightful place
Once you’re already good with your floor plan, all that’s left to do is to execute. And since you’re rearranging a bedroom, you should always start with the bed. After all, it’s the star of the show.
Beds are normally placed against the back of the biggest wall of the space. But the placement will ultimately depend on the orientation of the room as well. So by this time, you just have to trust the floor plan that you made earlier.
4. Bring in other furniture, from big to small
Now that you’ve placed your bed, it’s time to stage other pieces. The best strategy here is to start from the bigger furniture like cabinets, desks, shelves, lounge chairs for bedroom, and consoles. After that, work your way all the way down to the smaller pieces like lamps, cushions, pillows, bedsides, wall arts, and other accessories.
5. Don’t forget the rug
If there’s one thing you should learn from The Dude in The Big Lebowski, it’s that a well-made and great-looking rug is worth all the hassle just to get it back.
That’s why when shopping for rugs, look for samples that will make you say “that rug really tied the room together!” with passion and conviction.
Aside from a beautiful pattern, the placement of the rug in your room is just as important. You can either place it next to your bed or make it the centre of attention of your bedroom.
6. Lastly, just try stuff
If there’s one piece of advice that we can leave to you, it’s that don’t be afraid to try stuff. Yes, there are guides like this piece to get you started. But ultimately, it’s your creative imagination that will make wonders for your bedroom. After all, it’s your own space. And you’re free to do anything with it.
