Your bedroom should be the most personal part of your house and should embody your personality as much as possible. You want to feel comfortable in your bedroom because, at the end of the day, your bedroom is where you will lay your head to sleep and ponder life. It should be the representative of you, visitors to your bedroom should feel like they are getting an unseen glimpse into your life.
Most people would agree that having an impressive bedroom sounds great, but when you put it into practice, it can be surprisingly hard to personalize your bedroom. We have a few tips that will help you reach deep into yourself and manifest your sense of you into your bedroom!
Stay True to Yourself
The first step to effectively personalize your bedroom is being in touch with your likes and dislikes. You cannot manifest yourself into your bedroom if you do not first know what is true to your heart. Do not be afraid to display it because your bedroom should be your most personal room in the house. You are in charge of how to organize and redesign your bedroom.
Include Posters and Other Artwork
Do you have a favorite musical artist or band? A dream place to live? Family or friends, that you have a great personal connection with? Do not be afraid to display these interests and connections on your walls with the use of paintings, posters and other artwork. Even if you like abstract artwork, post it on your wall: people seem to forget that the concept of posting images that you like on social media was modeled after the idea of posting artwork that you like in your house. Do not be afraid to express your opinions and preferences with your artwork.
Create a Small Personalized Space
When you are in the process of remodeling your bedroom, make sure to design plans for building a small personal space in your room that is dedicated either to the work you are passionate about or affection that was particularly important to you. For example, if you enjoy drawing, create a space in the corner of your room where you have a comfy chair that you dedicate to using only when you are creating art, and surround that chair with your artwork or other inspiring paintings.
Put Your Accomplishments on Display
If you have certifications, trophies, or degrees that you dedicated a part of your life toward attaining and are proud of, put them on display. Hang them together on a section of your wall or dedicate a desk or mantel to displaying the accomplishments in life that you cherish the most. It will serve as a constant reminder of the hardships you have endured, of the discipline you have exercised, and will motivate you to excel further in life.
Don’t Be Afraid to Get Quirky
Again, your bedroom is your personal space, and when designing your bedroom, you should be concerned with your interests and motivations. Do not be afraid to get very personal and quirky when it comes to adding knick-knacks to your bedroom. The little things that you include in your bedroom can add a lot of character to your personal space and trigger memories that mean a lot to you. For example, if you have an item that reminds you of the best event you ever participated in your youth, do not be afraid to put it on display, however out of place it might look. Remember, that memorabilia is there for you.
Create a Color Scheme
Another helpful tip that can aid you when it comes to adding personality to your room is setting a color scheme for your room and a common theme that your accessories and furniture will adhere to. The use of different types of lighting and curtains can be particularly useful when it comes to accomplishing this goal because light really helps to set a mood in the room and your curtains will reverberate that lighting.
When it comes to personalizing your bedroom, dig deep to discover the things that mean the most to you and do not be afraid to wear your heart on your shoulder. For more tips on design, contact us today at 714.848.1702.
