What is the most important room in the house to you? Is it the salon and dining room to entertain guests? Or is it the kitchen to experiment with food? To many people, they feel most comfortable in their bedroom, where they can just relax and be themselves.
So when you walk into a bedroom, what attracts you most in it? Is it the massive bed? The decorative dresser? Or the impressive closets? The most common focal point in a bedroom, especially the master bedroom, is almost always the bed. Be it an old fashioned iron post bed or a four poster bed with draw curtains or a canopy, special attention is always given to the headboard, making it the most prominent feature in the bedroom. Even a simple guest room can be made charming by adding an iron bed with its intricate designs and draped with light gauzy fabric to create a romantic atmosphere.
People express their individual personalities when choosing elaborate designs or outstanding colours for their headboards. Of the many types of headboards, Venetian Headboards makes perfect focal points in any master bedroom with their filigree and detailed designs. Whether carved out of wood or crafted out of metal, painted or left neutral, they go well with a variety of colour schemes, furnishings and decor. They are considered to add class and style to any bedroom. A simple trick in creating an attractive focal point for your bedroom is using Retro Prints, which are quite easy to apply.
Here are some of the most common patterns which you can use:
Animal Prints are very popular with children, even teenagers, the most popular being leopard spots and zebra stripes. Geometric Shapes are suitable for both boys and girls, ranging from polka dots to cubes to paisley designs. You can even mix and match the colours to suit the tastes of those who share a room.
Checkerboard Patterns can be easily done in a DIY project since you have an endless choice of colour combinations (single, two-toned or rainbows). Padded Headboards are popular with adults who are fond of muted and soft colours. Though the designs are simple enough, it needs an upholstery expert to create a perfect finish.
To get the most out of your bedroom, begin by thinking about the design and layout. Choose your bed as the focal point, and make sure it is large enough for you but in proportion to the room. Next, invest in a well-made mattress; try it out in the store if need be and get as comfortable as possible! Now is time for the décor,make sure your bed and décor match, though not necessarily from the same collection.
With your decor and colour scheme in mind, it is now time to choose the rest of your bedroom furniture. Keep in mind enough storage space to de-clutter the room. Beddings can be stored under the bed in drawers or baskets; bedside tables can store remote, books, pills, watches, …etc., and dressers can take all your accessories and personal care items. If you really want to pamper yourself, why not install a TV in your bedroom?
