5 Design Styles To Consider in a Bedroom Makeover

Category:

If you are like most people, the bedroom seems to be the last consideration in any remodeling process. Common areas of the home, those used by the majority of people are typically the first to get the royal treatment — the living room, kitchen and bathroom being at the top of the list. A warm and inviting bedroom, however, is one of the very things necessary for restful sleep. Stop neglecting your bedroom and do a makeover, considering one of these five design styles.

Coastal. A coastal design is inspired by the ocean and shoreline. Colors are light or pastel. A sea-foam green paint on the walls, accompanied by white or off white linens and a down comforter will make you want to stay cuddled in bed on a Sunday afternoon. Choose bamboo or bamboo-colored furniture for a soft look and add an oversized chair or loveseat of the same color so you have additional space in which to read on your days off. Hard wood floors are accented by a light colored rug to pull it all together.

Asian. Invoke a serene feeling in your bedroom utilizing an Asia inspired room. Furniture takes on low sleek lines and colors are warm but muted. Paper lanterns, long slim curtains and light but colorful walls invite you into a place that feels comfortable and exotic. Mirrored pieces in small amounts also make a statement in an Asia inspired space.

Contemporary. Updated home furnishings in the contemporary style take on a variety of forms. Solid colors and sleek lines define the space but it doesn’t have to be barren or cold – quite the opposite. Use white, off-white or tan on some of the larger pieces and add in pops of color in varying areas of the spectrum. If you like gold, red and blue, go for it. Just make sure there are enough of each to pull the entire look together. Contemporary vases and candle holders, plus fresh flowers complete the overall look and feel.

Eclectic. An eclectic bedroom is the most open, free design style utilizing a variety of pieces across all decorating genres. Sometimes the color pulls it together, sometimes the pieces just work. Think varying colors and textures and maybe some old and new mixed in. Colorful glass vases look beautiful on top of an antique end table. A beautiful chandelier is the perfect addition to a shabby chic bed and beautiful fluffy white comforter.

Romantic. Soft hues, curvy lines and plush material defines a beautifully romantic bedroom. Consider a canopy bed with sheer netting draped atop and down the sides, pink or purple walls, and a fluffy white rug. Add a gorgeous lamp or wall sconces for soft inviting light, plus add candles and flowers for the final touch.

Stop in to one of the two Connell’s locations today for more great bedroom ideas as well as home furnishings for all rooms of your home. We have pieces across all genres so you’re sure to find something (if not a lot of things) you’ll love. Join us on Facebook for contests, design tips and more.
