Bedroom Design: 5 Tips to Inspire!

If a dreamy bedroom design is what your longing for, this is the article for you! We have 5 inspiring tips to get you moving in the right direction and to FINALLY design the lux bedroom you deserve. Make your dream bedroom a reality–it will impact your life in more ways than one. We guarantee it. 

1. Simply the Best

Don’t overthink your bedroom makeover, after all, bedrooms should be a simple space. Remove unnecessary items and furniture that creates clutter. This will reduce stress and anxiety which is the LAST thing you want in your new bedroom design. In certain situations, clients use their bedroom as their “home office” or workout space. That can work if the activity is intentional and not just taking up space.

2. Design the Movement

Navigating your bedroom should not be difficult. It should be a simple design with open and clear walkways. Due to its large scale, place the bed away from the door and create pathways to your walk-in closet, en-suite bath and dressers. A natural flow throughout your bedroom is important in making it a comfortable space.

3. Customize the Windows

Your window shades will play a huge role in your bedroom design. No one wants to be awoken by sunshine too early in the morning. The light coming into the room needs to be controlled to create the optimum sleep environment. You know your home best–you may need privacy, too. Room darkening and blackout shades could be necessary for you. Take time to evaluate your bedroom’s needs and then choose window treatments.

If you live by a strict schedule, you’ll love this bedroom upgrade.  Smart shades allow you to plan your day down to the moment you draw your shades at night. You can schedule your room darkening shades to open before the alarm and wake to natural light, then, direct them to close for your afternoon nap and open again to take in the starlit Kansas City area sky. Putting your shades on a schedule can also keep your home running efficiently by insulating your windows in the winter and keeping things cool during the summer. 

4. See the Light

We all want our bedrooms dark when we sleep, but what about other times of the day? Once your dream bedroom design is complete, you’ll be spending more time there. It may become your favorite place to binge on your favorite series, practice yoga or retreat for some alone time. All these activities require different levels of lighting so it’s important to add a floor lamp, wall sconces or an inspiring chandelier to your design. Never underestimate the effect additional sources of lighting can have on the spaces in your home. Tailor your atmosphere according to your specific activities.
