Decorating The Perfect Bedroom

With your bedroom, you should go minimalistic to make sure that the room does its job. If you are thinking of changing your bedroom, then you have come to the right place. The aim of this article is to show you how you can decorate your bedroom perfectly, using the best furniture and lighting stores. Before you look into the lighting, you need to get the right furniture for your room. You should stick to the basics of bed, bedside table, cupboard and some storage options.

If you have trouble sleeping then you should think twice before putting a television in your room. Televisions serve as a distraction and stop your brain from relaxing. However, some people find comfort in having a T.V. and they will fall asleep with the T.V. on. Therefore, this should be your personal preference.

If you do get a T.V., make sure that it is the right size for the room. If you have the box room, there is no point in putting a 50-inch T.V in there because it will look ridiculous. Just think portable and you should have no issue. You have to remember that your bedroom should be for sleeping, not for watching television.

Once you have the right furniture, you need to start looking into the lighting options for the room. As your bedroom is for sleeping, you will probably have the lights off most of the time. You might have them on for a bit, whilst you are getting ready for bed, but once you want to sleep, the lights will be off.

This is not to say that you shouldn’t have any lights in the room. You should actually be thinking about having two or three lights in the room. You should have the main light that hangs down from the ceiling but you should think about having it attached to a dimmer light.

You are not going to want the light to be on full beam when you turn it on because it will wake you up. With a dimmer light, you will have the option of using soft light, which will help you to see better but it won’t wake you up too much.

A lot of people read before they go to bed and if you use the main room light, as soon as you start to feel sleepy, you will have to get up to turn the light off. This will definitely wake you up.

Therefore, you will have to have some bedside lights in your room. You can put them on your bedside tables and they should have an on and off switch on the base of the light.

If you have a single bed, you should just have one light, but If you have a double, then you should have two lights. You should make sure that your bulbs aren’t too powerful otherwise the lights will be too bright.

Any good light store will be able to recommend you on the best lights for your bedroom. They should be able to tell you about dimmer and the power of the light. All you have to do is ask their advice and you will have the best lights for your bedroom.

Chose a Bedroom Carpet

Man-Made Carpet Fibers – Pros

  • They are more durable than natural fibers and they stretch easily. They are waterproof and have good stain resistance qualities because they do not absorb liquids easily. Waterproofing and stain resistance can also can be enhanced to meet the needs of difficult environments such as a child’s bedroom carpet.
  • They are a lot less sensitive to sunlight, oils and human skin. Over time these elements will break down and wear away a carpet, however with synthetic fibers this time period is significantly extended.
  • Natural fibers are organic material and are therefore more attractive to moths and carpet beetles, which can not only damage the carpet but also cause allergic reactions in certain people. A bedroom carpet made from man-made fibers is an ideal choice for asthma sufferers for example.
  • In many cases artificial fibers are more environmentally friendly than the natural alternatives. The production of cotton is very resource intensive, requiring a lot of water and land in order to produce wool.
  • The colours and designs available are infinite and because the whole fiber is dyed the same color it doesn’t fade with cleaning.

Man-Made Carpet Fibers – Cons

  • Synthetic fibers have a low melting temperature making them prone to heat damage and they can melt relatively easily. They cannot be washed with hot water.
  • They generate more electrostatic charges when the carpet is rubbed than natural fiber carpets although this problem is not as severe as it used to be.
  • Artificial fibers don’t have the same ‘bouncebackability’ as natural fibers – they tend to flatten easily under furniture.

Not all synthetic fibers are born equal. There have been major technological improvements in their production; today they are not necessarily the poor relation of natural fibers as they once were. A bedroom carpet made from man-made fibers is definitely something worth considering.

Whilst there has been a trend towards hard floors in the home, carpets are still the first choice for bedrooms, stairs and landings. It’s a significant investment and understanding the choices available will help you make informed decisions. They are also a major element in the interior design of any room and as such its style, colour and pattern are important.
