After a long day at work, one of the things I always look forward to is being able to ~chill~ in my room. TBH, there's nothing quite like it. It's a personal space where I can kick back, relax, and just enjoy spending time by myself. In fact, since I've mostly been home this past year, I usually think about all the ways I can give my room a makeover. But let's be real: Redecorating a bedroom is easier said than done. There's definitely more to it than just being #aesthetic.
According to the team behind Mundo Design + Build, bedrooms are all about personality. "The 'perfect bedroom' significantly depends on the lifestyle of its owner and it will vary from one person to another. Beyond being well-designed, functional, and cozy, the ideal bedroom also needs to reflect the character of its owner," they said.
If you're planning to give your space a new look, below are some room makeover tips and bedroom design ideas to keep in mind:
Because your bedroom is where you'll most likely be resting, Mundo Design + Build suggests that you go for a subtle and cool color palette so it's easy on the eyes. Don't just choose a color because it's your "favorite."
Space and Circulation Flow
It's important that you also take into consideration the space in your room. Aside from having the ability to move around your room freely, your space should also manage to fit your lifestyle. According to Mundo Design + Build, "If you're on a work from home set up and your bedroom space is limited, you can opt for a loft type bed. [From this], you can utilize the bottom space as your home office and the bunker as your personal space."
"Lighting is arguably the key element that will define your personal space," they said. It's an aspect of design that's underrated, but definitely deserves more of your attention. Here's a pro-tip from Mundo Design + Build: "Choose to layer your lights [and consider adding] warm light for mood lighting."
"Properly distribute your type of material. You can balance the use of fabrics, beddings, and even selections of curtains with the use of other materials like wood, steel, or concrete accents to serve as contrast."
When it comes to choosing furniture, you always have to think about ratio and proportion because these are key factors for both functionality and style. Make sure that you buy the right size of furniture that can fit properly in your space. "There is a reason why different sizes of furniture are readily available in the market, and this is to cater to any size of bedroom," explained Mundo Design + Build.
At the end of day, this entire room makeover is all for you. Remember that all the design choices that you make should fit your style.
