Everyone wants to have the most presentable home possible. However, one of the most used and loved rooms in your home can easily be overlooked. You spend multiple hours a night, every night in your bedroom. This makes it the perfect location to try new decorating projects and the year’s newest trends. You will find that following these trends by adding simple touches can give your room a new outlook and a beautiful appearance.
The easiest way to update the look of your room or any bedroom in your home is to add new bedding. Each year, companies are bringing out new designs and styles of bedding to give modern touches of elegance. Another big benefit is that bedding can be a great way to add to an existing theme or create a brand new color scheme you never thought of before. Plus, you can use your room as a way to experiment new ideas that you can later bring into the rest of your home.
One of the biggest trends of the year is to have all white bedding. This is an easy way to switch things up as almost every company sells their products in a white shade. Also, this can be very inviting in a guest room as it is a reminder of hotel rooms. Plus, having extra sheets or duvet covers in a basic white can be used for years to come, even when the trends completely change.
A big benefit to choosing white is that it can work with almost any color scheme. Whether you are adding white bedding to go for a more neutral look or are going to add bright shades for contrast, you can never go wrong with this option. Also, white can be mixed in with a variety of patterns making this even more versatile. The only time you may want to reconsider purchasing white bedding is if you are putting it in a child or toddler’s room as it tends to show up stains more easily.
Of course, everyone knows that colors can give you an emotional response, which is something to remember when decorating your room. Your bedroom is often your place to relax and most importantly sleep. This is why color psychology should play a role in the type of bedding you purchase. For a more serene, calm feel you should purchase items that are in lighter shades like sky blue.
The great thing about color is that you can use it sparingly to add a pop of a hue to the bedroom. You can have a more basic duvet cover with a brighter colored sheet and pillow cases. You can even give the room a specific theme and add shades that add to the theme. For bedding with a blue shade, you could do a beach or coastal theme.
Another big trend of the year is mixing prints and fabrics or textures. This is very easy when it comes to your bedding as you can stick with more neutral and more vibrant pieces. Going with a brighter duvet cover and more neutral pillowcases and sheets is an option. You can also use your bedding as a pop of color for the entire room and build the patterns around this color.
To avoid going overboard, stick to only a few patterns with the same basic shades mixed in. You can do sixty percent of the room a base color, thirty percent a simpler pattern, and the final ten percent can be a wilder option. Like mentioned, all of these patterns should have some type of connecting element. You can use your bed to become this element and add patterned throw pillows.
Overall, if you are hoping to experiment with your decorating skills, let your bedroom be your go to place. Purchasing new bedding is one of the simplest ways to change up the look of the room for relatively inexpensive. Also, even if the trends change, you can always use extra sheets and blankets for guests or as back up.
