Did you know according to Feng Shui experts, the bedroom is the most important place?
It is a very personal space where the most important part of your day happens: sleep! We spend about one-third of our lives sleeping. So, it makes sense for you to want your bedroom to have elements that are specifically designed to cater to your comfort and aesthetic. Having a comfortable room that you like will influence your sleep and ability to wind down after a long day. However, how do we strike a balance with style and comfort without ending up with an average bedroom? It’s not wrong to want to have a stylish room. After all, the bedroom is an extension of yourself.
You could still achieve a luxurious room that would exude comfort and cosiness — perfect for relaxing and recharging. Before you begin your Pinterest mood board hunt and start shopping, here are a couple of key tips on how to make your bedroom look super luxurious.
Add A Touch Of Green
The easiest way to elevate the look of your bedroom is to add houseplants. There is no correct size or type of plant that you should have in your room. It really depends on the size of your bedroom and the look you are trying to achieve. If you have a bedroom with high ceilings, a huge houseplant could accentuate the space that you have in the room. This can help achieve a minimalist-modern type of luxurious look. You could also have smaller clusters of potted plants to put on your vanity or your nightstands. Research has shown that plants are capable of improving one’s mood and productivity while improving air quality as well.
If you are not a fan of maintaining plants, do not worry. Having houseplants does require extra effort. And if you are someone who is more on the go, here is an alternative: there is no harm in getting fake ones to display in your room. They still evoke the same elevated feel, just that it comes without the responsibility of keeping it alive.
Choose The Right Props
Every single piece of furniture you put in your room makes a difference. No matter the size or type, it makes or breaks the style. Always bear in mind to keep things cohesive and pay attention to details. This effort would surely pay off once you have assembled your bedroom.
Incorporating textiles in your bedroom could really boost its look. Darker-coloured rugs can invite warmth while lighter-coloured rugs can make the room more spacious. Again, it really depends on whether you want a cosy type or modern type of luxurious. Playing around with textures and prints of the rugs could also elevate the style instantly. It completes the room and makes the entire aesthetic cohesive.
Pillows are always under-appreciated. They are the focal point of beds and can make or break the look of your bedroom. It is recommended to over-stuff your pillows to create a plush, luxurious look. That way, it adds volume and layer to your bedroom.
Another tip would be to reconsider what type of nightstand you would want to put in your room. These would be the treasure boxes of your essential items. Make sure you choose nightstands with optimal storage options for you to keep chargers, diaries, stationery, masks, skincare products, or whatever you need beside you before you sleep. Plus, choose some of these essential items to display on the top of your nightstand to glam it up. For example, candles or perfume bottles are elegant choice pieces that can accessorize your nightstand.
Depending on the amount of space you have, you should decide on one statement piece in your bedroom. It could be your bedframe, an armchair, an art piece, a rug, the lighting, etc. Just take note not to over-clutter your room with too much furniture. It is important to have space to let the statement pieces of your room stand out.
Add Art Pieces
Art is an important element to create a sense of luxury. Nowadays, artists and designers are associated with elegance, luxury and stylish living. So this would be your chance to display pieces that reflect your taste in all things elegant. It could be a painted canvas, a sculpture or a poster. How you display it really matters to the style you are trying to achieve. You can have it mounted to the wall, have it placed on a nightstand or a windowsill or even just propped up against the wall.
The Right Light
Lighting also plays a huge role in creating an elevated look. Besides functionality, you can use lighting to set the mood in a room. You could consider installing hanging light fixtures to add a touch of glam to your bedroom. There are many different designs and variations of chandeliers. Depending on the style you are leaning towards, you can get a modern chandelier that looks prismatic or a traditional tiered one. It is dramatic and attention-grabbing — perfect for a stylish bedroom.
Alternatively, you could consider matching table lamps or tall light lamps. It adds symmetry and can create a cohesive flow throughout the room. Lamps that give off warm ambient lighting would evoke a more comfortable feel and are more suitable for the bedroom.
The most important factor to maintain a luxurious look is to keep your bedroom organized and tidy. For example, you can keep your vanity neat and tidy with clear acrylic boxes with dividers to keep your essential items. When it comes to buying storage options, do take note of the aesthetic you are trying to achieve and get those that would fit the theme. That way, your room looks more cohesive. After all, the devil is indeed in the details.
Keep your floor clear of clutter as well. Having a cluttered bedroom floor would take the attention away from the style and aesthetic of the room. Furthermore, if you own a rug, make sure it is cleaned on a regular basis as well as it usually captures a lot of dirt or tiny items.
That being said, remember that you are designing this space for you. Do not feel obliged to follow everything we recommended. Use what you think is good — from houseplants, statement pieces, organizing tools, and lighting. Now that you are equipped with ideas, go forth and create your mood boards and start shopping!
