Sleep is extremely important, I guess we can all agree to that. We spend one-third of our lives sleeping and possibly even more especially if you’re the kind of person who considers sleeping as a hobby (shout-out to myself). Kidding aside, since we spend a substantial amount of time sleeping to recharge for another day of work, it is only right that we sleep in style.
Making a glamorous and stylish bed requires time, effort and the right planning. Sometimes, we have a lot of ideas that we want to incorporate in our design that it oftentimes results in a mess. So to help you make a glamorous bed, here are some things to keep in mind:
- Lighting is key.
Lighting plays a big role in the overall look of your bedroom. Sometimes, even if you have the most stylish looking sheets and pillows, with the wrong kind of lighting, it can still look dull. Assess the size of your bedroom first so you can figure out which light to pick that covers the entire room. Avoid setting up the light just above your bed or headboard because it can be uncomfortable to your eyes. It is also recommended that you install a dimmer so you can have the option of altering the mood setting of the entire bedroom.
- Choose the right kind of pillow.
It is highly recommended that you choose oversized pillows to make a bold statement. You can also put in small throw pillows for an added classy effect but be careful not to overdo it. It is recommended that you choose silk covers for your throw pillow and the colour of it should be along the lines of the theme you have chosen.
- Get some quality sheets.
You are going to need some quality and chic bed sheets to go along with your comfy pillows. Egyptian cotton sheets with a good thread count are the best sheets for your glam bed. They’re soft and smooth and they look elegant. They are also available in colours that will match with your theme.
- The bed.
Your bed should be main attraction of the whole bedroom. A king-sized bed is ideal. You can choose if you want to go for a wooden or brass headboard but of course, this should go along with your theme. Your bed should look the most glamorous and should be inviting.
- Choose your theme.
Decide which theme to go for: modern, vintage, classic or feminine, or many others. It is important to stick to your choice otherwise some pieces of your decor will stray with your theme and it will destroy the entire look. You can choose black and white pieces if you’re into monochromatic styles or soft pink and cream colours if you want it to be feminine.
Setting up a glamorous bed can be quite tricky if you don’t know where to start. Hopefully this guide has helped you with some ideas on how to glam up your very own bedroom.
