Since being glued to The Great Interior Design Challenge each evening on BBC2, I’ve become much more interested in seeking out interior design inspiration online. It turns out that researching a new style and finding a way of creating the look for less is super-easy when you’re browsing Pinterest. Honestly, if it wasn’t for Pinterest I would get a lot more work done! Whether you fancy ultra modern, themed or just want to make a few small changes, there are both big and little things you can do to totally transform your room and you can find countless ideas online to create a stylish bedroom. Yes, I’ve put my addiction to Pinterest to good use and have found some great makeover ideas to share with you today.
If you want inspiration for a unique room why not look at themed bedrooms on Elle Décor to get some inspiration. You may be thinking about a space which is sleek and sexy, a traditional boudoir, a rich Moroccan hideaway, or a cosy logged cabin bedroom; all of these can be completely design by you. By simply collecting furniture, upcycling things you already have and bringing together soft furnishings you can make a massive difference to a room. It’s important to feel relaxed in your bedroom and create a truly comfortable atmosphere, so function, mood and harmony are all factors which need to be considered when designing your bedroom.
Inject your home with a personal touch by upcycling your existing furniture, printing your own fabric and making your own soft furnishings. But if you simply don’t have the time to craft everything yourself that doesn’t mean you have to spend a fortune on buying new things. A great many online retailers offer discounts online so it makes sense to browse collections, seek out discount codes and wait for the sales. If you’re after fitted and free standing bespoke furniture you’ll easily be able to find inspiration online thanks to the sheer quantity of designs, finishes, colours and options available out there. If you want to see what kind of impact a new piece of furniture will have on your room space, some furniture companies even provide 3D visualisation software, so that you can see what your bedroom space will look like.
If you want to make a few changes to your bedroom, but without a complete refurbishment, there are lots of sites where you can get divan bases that come with headboards. Divan bases have had a resurgence over the last few years, offering thanks to the useful storage solutions they provide, letting you configure the amount of drawers you require in the base. They come in a range of colours, patterns and finishes, helping you match your design choices. You can also add a matching headboard, available in a wide range of fabric options, which can make a real statement to your bedroom.
If you fancy a complete revamp of your bedroom, there are lots of companies who offer huge bedroom furniture ranges. Well-designed bedrooms can revolutionise your space, tidy it up, making it clutter-free, and therefore more relaxing. Choose bedroom furniture with clean lines and pick out clever storage options. Get ideas from magazines and on Pinterest, and then collect what you’re looking for from furniture shops, add shelves and upcycle with fresh paint colours to make your bedroom look unique.
