The Bedroom of Your Dreams is Within Reach

bedroom decor ideasYour bedroom should be a haven of relaxation and tranquility. It’s where you go to when you need to retreat from the world and rest. It should also reflect your personality and have the ability to make you feel instantly at ease. If your bedroom isn’t currently doing these things, and is not how you envision your dream bedroom to look, it’s time to make some changes.

Your dream bedroom is within reach, and you shouldn’t forget that. So, stop putting off making the kinds of changes that could truly transform your bedroom and how you use it. Here are some of the things to consider.

Clear the Clutter and Get the Basics Right

First of all, you should make an effort to clear out the clutter in your bedroom. I’m sure the bedroom of your dreams is not one filled with junk and clutter. Go check out my KonMari vlogs if you want to learn how to get rid of clutter. KonMari has really helped me make a huge difference in the amount of items we have in our home and how I approach purchasing new items, I’m only half way through my journey and already it has had a huge impact on me. When you’ve done that, you can get to work on getting the basic things right.

Create a Mood

Every bedroom should have a clear mood that you’re trying to evoke with its design. It doesn’t particularly matter what that mood is, that’s something that’s for you (and your partner) alone to decide. You definitely need to take steps to ensure that there is a clear mood in place, though. If there’s not, you will never get the bedroom of your dreams. Plan it all out and come up with ideas relating to design, layout and colour scheme that will help you to create the right kind of mood in your bedroom.


If Size is an Issue, Think Big

The size of your bedroom might be holding it back and stopping it from being the dream bedroom you want it to be. If that’s the case, you need to think big. You could go as far as moving out if there are no other options. You can find help with that at But if you don’t want to go that far, you could knock down a wall and extend the bedroom. It might mean sacrificing space in other areas, but it could be worth it. If you have an adjoining spare room you never use, why not make it part of your main bedroom?


Light it Properly

The way in which you light your bedroom will have a huge impact on how you end up using it. This is something that you should never underestimate the importance of. Your bedroom should have a strong source of natural light, so work on the window area and make the most of it. Then you should have at least two sources of artificial light in the room. There will be a main overhead light in the room, as well as something like a lamp or small lights on the bedside tables. Getting the lighting right will make a real difference.

You deserve a bedroom that does everything you want it to, so don’t settle for second best any longer.
