The bed is what makes the bedroom a bedroom. It is the main furniture piece which is the focal point of every bedroom. No matter how big or small a bedroom is, it would never function as a bedroom without a bed. Aside from that, there are also some basic furniture pieces that you need to improve the functionality of your bedrooms such as a nightstand and a dresser.
However, even if you already have those essential pieces for your bedroom, you might still feel that there is something lacking in it. What your bedroom needs are some of the accessories that not only add style to your room but also make it look more comfortable and welcoming. Here are the must-have accessories for your bedroom.
Throw pillows not only look great on the couch or sofa but also look perfect on your bed as well. If you want to add pops of colour to your room, the easiest way is to buy a few pieces of throw pillows for your bed. It is best to use 3 throw pillows at most so it doesn’t look overdone. Also, choose colours or patterns that are in contrast to your linen bedding for more emphasis on the style.
Aside from a few throw pillows, you could also add a throw blanket to add more colour and an extra touch of comfort to your room. You can place it folded at the foot of your bed to keep your feet warm during cold nights. You can also place it on your reading chair to stay cosy while reading your favourite book or just relaxing.
It is common for a room to have several sources of the light – from the ambient lighting, floor lamp, bedside lamp, and many more. However, if all these lighting fixtures are just plain and standard, your bedroom décor wouldn’t have much of an impact.
You don’t need to change all of your lighting fixtures into something special. Just pick one fixture and swap it with a showstopper one – whether it is the ceiling lighting, bedside lamp, or any of the lights that you have. That way, your bedroom décor will have more impact and style.
Even if your bedroom is carpeted, nothing beats the extra comfy feeling an area rug adds to any room. Choose an area rug that complements the overall décor of your bedroom. The size of the area rug that you need depends on the size of your bed. You’ll need one that is bigger than your bed and fills the space until just a few inches into the nearest wall.
Aside from all of those accessories, don’t forget to add something personal for you in your bedroom whether it is a photo, your favourite artwork, a collection you had, or anything that means something special to you. That way, your bedroom will become your personal sanctuary where you can rest and relax after a long day.
