Your bedroom is the only place you want to rush to after a hard and long day at work. It’s the only place where you can relax and be yourself without any interruptions. If you want a design that exudes warmth, coziness, and class, go for the oriental bedroom décor. It has become more popular than ever, especially in bedrooms.
You don’t have to do a full makeover for your bedroom in order to achieve that theme though. You can start with some small items to add a touch of the orient and do it a little bit at a time. Eventually, you’ll find yourself in the bedroom you’ve always dreamed of. One that you can actually relax in and have a good night’s sleep.
Oriental décor is all about elegant ornamentation. For instance, instead of painting the walls with a plain pastel color, go for textured wallpapers, rice papered walls, bamboo textures, or simply use deep and rich shades. If you prefer using the ordinary paint but you don’t want to commit to a bold color, try a neutral and warm earth tone and get started.
Oriental bedroom décor is also highly focused on the natural beauty of all the materials. Therefore, it’s fairly important that you introduce the elements of nature to your décor. You can achieve that by simply placing some potted green plants, a fireplace or a table-top fountain. Use oriental lamp shades and oriental fabrics all over the space.
As for the lighting fixtures, you can replace your high wattage bulbs with lower wattage ones. This can greatly add to the soothing and romantic atmosphere of the oriental décor. Alternatively, you can install a dimmer switch so that you could dim the lights whenever you want.
If you’re on a budget and you can’t afford buying a new oriental bedroom furniture set, consider refinishing your existing one with black lacquer. All wood finishes would blend perfectly with the oriental décor though, but black will add to the elegant and classy look you wish for.
Finally, you can finish off the look by buying a new area rug in oriental designs and find an oriental art print to display on your bedroom wall. Make sure that all the colors in your bedroom are complementing each other, especially those of the accessories.
