Your bedroom is one of the most personal spaces in your Houston home. It’s the one place for many of us where we can really relax and recharge and therefore it deserves as much attention as any other space in your home, even if far fewer people ever see it.
With this in mind when many people think about decorating their bedroom the one thing we, as home decorators, often hear most is that they would like to make their bedroom look more luxurious. Here are some helpful starters to do just that.
Add A Great Rug
Adding warmth and texture to your sleeping space is one of the easiest ways to both boost its luxe factor and express your personal style. Whether you prefer elaborate Orientals, florals, a graphic print or something more understated, like jute, a chic new rug can have a positive decor impact in an instant.
Add Statement Art
Whether you choose a sculpture, photograph, or colorful painting adding a piece of statement art to your bedroom can have a huge design impact. While your statement piece can certainly be displayed on the wall, leaning against a wall can be just as powerful.
Go Overboard With Your Pillows
There’s something very luxurious about plush, overfilled throw pillows, which go a long way in transforming your bedroom from “blah” to a luxurious retreat that is more like a hotel room than just that boring place you go to bed. You don’t have to limit their use to your bed either, as a great floor pillow can become an excellent place to ‘crash’ in peace for a few minutes when you get home after a hard day, as well as a wonderful addition to your bedroom decor.
Add Hanging Illumination
Those boring recessed ceiling lights have got to go. Replace them with a statement-making hanging light or a glamorous chandelier. These wonderful pieces are SO glamorous and also far more affordable than you might think.
Redo the Nightstand
If you’re anything like most people, your nightstand is a mass of essential items: Hand creams, charging cords, half-full glasses of water, quarter-finished novels. It’s time to rethink how that’s all displayed. Hide some things away in a drawer; display small items in a beautiful tray.
Choose a Statement Piece
A stunning dark wood bed frame; a gorgeous antique dresser; a plush velvet arm chair—each bedroom should have a wonderful decadent centerpiece to be truly luxurious, but make sure it’s the star of the decor. Don’t clutter the room with too much furniture, instead letting each piece stand on its own.
Keep the Floor Clear
Granted, this is more of an organization and cleanliness tip, but don’t let that belie its importance: A cluttered bedroom never looks luxurious, so keep the floor clean and orderly—that means no stacks of books and piles of extension cords, either.
Reorganize your vanity. Just like your nightstand, a cluttered vanity can make your whole bedroom look messy. Now’s a good time to buy some makeup organizers, and take the time to throw what you don’t use and display what you do.
