Among the best things about being a bachelor is getting the complete freedom on how to lead your life, including the way you decorate your pad.
It may seem incredible but by the right combination of colors, furniture, textures, lighting, etc. you can make your bedroom fit for the royalty. Some simple but highly effective tips:
The Color Scheme
Deciding on the color scheme of the walls is perhaps the best way of starting your bedroom decoration. Regardless of whether the room is small or large, you can make it look far more spacious by choosing light colors such as white or pastels as they reflect a lot more light.
You can make the bedroom more interesting and lend it added depth by using a dark contrasting color on one of the smaller walls.
If you prefer a classic ambiance you can consider a really dark accent wall in combination with off-white or a buff color or if your tastes swing towards the trendy, you can explore some vivid color like sunset orange or lime green as the highlight.
Once the colors of the walls are decided you can go on to select the furnishings in colors that will complement your choice.
A low slung contemporary-styled bed can make the room look more spacious; however, you do lose out on the extra storage space possible with a high bed.
Remember, you will also need to allow for the height of the mattress, and that can range anywhere from 10 to 15 inches for one of the latest memory foam or latex mattresses that will give you both the desired comfort and spinal support for sound and refreshing sleep. Refer to real mattress reviews to know which mattresses are the best.
Keep the color scheme of the bed linen subtle and introduce splashes of color with cushions and comforters. These are easy to change and can be used to freshen up the ambiance of the room when the seasons change. You can think about adding a dresser though many bachelors are quite happy with a mirror mounted on the door of the cupboard.
To keep the bedroom uncluttered and allow it to deliver a relaxing atmosphere, you should keep accessories to the minimum. You can select one wall to display an oversize painting or a collection of photos clustered together for best effect.
Use the wall facing the bed to install the largest-possible flat-screen TV so that you can watch it while in bed. Dress up your windows with vertical or Venetian shades that are easy to install and maintain.
If you have a large window, you can cut down on the light also by using solar films. Use a good combination of task and ambient lighting that is soothing to the senses yet are functional.
