Sleep Tight with Our 5 Bedroom Design Tips

Catching Zzzz’s and looking good while doing it? Yes please! Curating the bedroom to be functional and designed well is a must. It should be a place all your dreams come true. We are coming to you with our top 5 bedroom design tips.

1. Simple is Best

Keep your bedroom space simple. Unnecessary furniture and clutter adds anxiety and takes away from your sleeping sanctuary. If there is enough room, some of our clients make a designated work space or working out area. This is–of course–intentional but besides that, squash the complicated, and put the extra away.

2. Calculated Moves

How the room creates movement is important for bedroom design. Keep all walkways, access to dressers, closets, and bathrooms open. There shouldn’t be any resistance to reach any part of the room. And the bed should comfortably reside away from the door because it’s the biggest item.

3. Customize the Windows

Privacy and light control are the top wants with bedroom design. You want to be able to get a good night’s sleep without the neighbors seeing. The correct amount of light for you starts with the window coverings. Are you light sensitive and need blackout shades? Or are you wanting room darkening to let a little morning sunshine creep in? You know yourself best!

And speaking of knowing yourself… we bet you have a schedule that you stick to. Smart shades can be scheduled to adjust during the day or night. Want your shades to rise a little before your alarm clock goes off? How about having them already drawn when you get home from work? It’s just a click away!


4. Light Control Beyond Slumber

Bedrooms are for sleeping, of course, but they are also a place to read a good book, catch up with a long distance phone call, or binge watch the latest reality show. These activities can happen at all times of the day, so plan ahead with additional light sources. Floor lamps are great for sitting areas, wall sconces above your bed, or a handcrafted colorful chandelier to add some pizzazz to the space.

5. Style, Style, Style

We have to say it three times to get the point across. Bedroom design deserves its own category and glory! Upgrade your bedding, snag a new area rug, or update the paint color. Your bedroom should have its “moment” and level up to the style you want and deserve!
