Tips for Creating a Peaceful Bedroom

Whether you’re looking to redecorate your own bedroom, your child’s room, or a guest room, there are a number of factors to consider. Designing a wonderful bedroom involves more than getting a bed and nightstand.

Even though the majority of it is sleeping, we spend such a great deal of time in our bedrooms. Putting careful thought and consideration into the design, layout, and style of the space will help set the tone and mood you’d like to see. Our award-winning Milwaukee interior designers have a few tips to consider!

Start with a great foundation

It’s not the only element, but it’s definitely the most important: the bed. A well-made, beautiful bed is often the centerpiece of a sleeping space. Of course the mattress is also important! When you retreat to your room each night, you want to be greeted by a bed you enjoy looking at and are excited to crawl into. Whether upholstered, metal, or wood, and platform, sleigh, or canopy style, there are so many options to choose from. Our designers can help you pinpoint your dream look!

Lighting is key

During the day, natural light makes a space feel more open, inviting, and fresh. In the evening, however, it’s important to look to lighting pieces to set the tone for restfulness. Strategically placed table and floor lamps as well as ceiling or mounted fixtures can work harmoniously to provide low, calming light in the space.

Cozy textures

From upholstery fabrics to bed linens, finding cozy finishes for your furniture pieces will allow you to feel relaxed no matter where you rest. A small sofa or set of side chairs offer a spot to curl up with a book, an upholstered bench serves as a wonderful place to sit as you get ready for the day or night, and luxurious linens keep you warm as you sleep. Soft throw blankets and pillows throughout the space are also a must!
