10 Out of The Box Ideas for Your Bedroom

There is nothing more relaxing than being able to unwind in the comfort of our bedroom after a long day at work. The bedroom in any household is a private area meant for personal relaxation and comfort.

If you are a working individual in an urban city like Hyderabad, we are sure you can relate with the need to slump on your very own bed after a 9-hour office job.

In today’s feature, Cutting Edge  Design Studio brings to you some out-of-the-box design ideas that will help you transform your bedroom into your very own private comfort cave.

1.MATTRESS MATTERS

There are many types of mattresses in the market, but what suits your sleep needs, can only be decided by you. Your bed is the one place that needs to be perfect to accommodate your sleep and relaxation needs. This makes it important for you to invest in a good mattress.

If you spend most of your days sitting in the cubicle, issues relating to the back may arise. Hence Cutting Edge Design Studio recommends the use of Memory foam and/or latex mattress, which is best for those with back pain since it moulds to your body for support.

2.CREATIVE HEADBOARDS

Depending on the kind of bed you have in your master bedroom, you can mix things up by designing your headboard in a way that compliments your bedroom.

You can use curtains as a creative headboard, this lets you update your room to fit every season and mood.You may also experiment with LED lights, fairy lights to give your bedroom a magical touch.

 3.FLATTERING LIGHTING

A bedroom does not necessarily have to be dull place. To brighten the atmosphere, opt for decorative lighting fixtures.

Depending on the height of the ceiling, you can choose lighting attachments that are sleek and long, or even notch up the wow quotient with a quaint chandelier.

Give yourself options, by adding a dimmer or opt for several fixtures throughout the room.

4.DISPLAY YOUR FAVORITE ARTWORK

 

Your bedroom is your personal space, and your personality must reflect in the way you design it.

Go ahead and express yourself through the art you adore. Are you a fan of the steampunk? Show it with the metallic pieces you hang in your bedroom walls.

Do you have soft spot for all things 90’s? Mount those chic painting and let the wall do the talking.

5.STATEMENT BEDFRAME

Selecting the right bed frame for your bedroom can be a daunting task. This being among the larger purchases you’ll make in your home, it needs to look right and be comfortable at the same time.

With seemingly endless options, finding the piece that’s both the right look and, more important, the right price, can feel a bit nerve-wracking.

Depending on the requirement of your bedroom, you need to ask the right questions before investing in a bold statement bedframe. Do you need a small piece for a small space? Are you trying to create height or fill some extra room? Are you looking to make a colourful statement or to keep things minimal? Do you need a comfortable headboard to prop up against with a book at night?

Answering these is bound to give you clarity before finalizing the statement piece for your room.

6.FOLLOW A THEME

Your bedroom can look any way you want it to. Choose a theme that harmonizes with your home’s interior décor and have fun actualizing it.
From the standard monochromatic theme to floral patterns, the possibilities are endless. Explore your options and go with what makes you happy.

7.ADD A SPLASH OF DRAMA

Livening up your bedroom décor with dramatic elements can do wonders to the overall look of the room.Even the perkiest, sunniest bedrooms need an element of dark, elegant glamour. Balance is key. Stick with a few dramatic pieces, like that of a bed frame upholstered in a textured fabric and topped with a vintage patterned blanket.

8.PERSONALIZED NIGHT STAND

A nightstand is an easy, fun way to bring a pop of colour into a plain bedroom.Every nightstand also needs good lighting. When it comes to lighting, select a modern table lamp that will add height to your table top.You can use a miniature trunk as a gorgeous bedside table— this will double as storage space. However, you want to be careful that it doesn’t take over the table. Leave room for accessorizing with small objects like a candle or a trinket dish.

9.PERFECT THE ART OF LAYERING

We spend about a third of our entire life sleeping. It is only fair to make our sleeping space as comfortable as possible. While bedrooms in magazines seem too flawless to attain, creating a gorgeous and luxurious looking bed is just a matter of a few good choices and a touch of layering.

You can make your bed with 100% linen bedding that gets softer with each wash and never needs ironing. Or cozy up in a peaceful oasis of crisp white cotton sheets, decorated with a beautifully embroidered quilt.

Cover your bed with a central statement piece. Dress it up or down with embellished pillows, decorate with a rug, and add lighting, art and decor to complete the look. For a classic look that works in any space, you can never go wrong with all white bedding.

10.FIND RIGHT BALANCE OF THROW PILLOWS

Using throw pillows to decorate may seem like a small part of the interior designing process, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. They’re the best way to elevate a house to a home.

After deciding on the right number of pillows, i.e. anywhere between 3 to 6, you can display them to get the most out of their décor potential.

If you like the look of asymmetry, try an arrangement that looks more random and effortless. This symmetrical approach is another great option, particularly well-suited for bedding.

Keep the neutral sleeping pillowcases in the back and let the more exciting throw pillows take centre stage. Feel free to introduce wilder prints into the mix.

Since a bedroom is the space in a home that feels the most personal and relaxing, comfort should be prioritized over style. But the two don’t need to be in competition either.

Renovating your bedroom into a sanctuary is all about channelling an environment that inspires and calms you. Using the designing pointers offered by Cutting Edge Design Studio, you can achieve the bedroom of your desire.
