Bedroom Decorating Do’s and Don’ts

Learn the unwritten rules for designing and arranging your bedroom.

A well-balanced bedroom

We recently gave various tips on ways to spruce up your living room while avoiding a few design taboos, but what about bedrooms? Guests might frequent these rooms less, but it’s important to have your arrangements flow cohesively throughout your home. Bedrooms are also the places we go to rest and balance ourselves. To ensure your bedrooms are well-balanced, here are a few guidelines to consider when decorating them.

The Do’s

  • Do use multiple light sources with varying degrees of intensity.

  • Do install dimmer switches.

  • Do consider getting rid of the carpet. Carpet is going out of style and can easily get dirty.

  • Do choose calming colors for your bedroom.

  • Do choose a rug that appropriately fits your bed and the overall size of the room.

  • Do have one place to sit and relax.

  • Do consider a place to store everyday items so they don’t clutter the room.

  • Do make sure you choose the right mattress for you.

The Don’ts

  • Don’t have a bed that’s too big or too small for a room.

  • Don’t overcrowd the room with furniture.

  • Don’t overcrowd the walls with decorations—keep it simple.

  • Don’t use bold or bright colors in the bedroom. It’s a place to unwind and relax.

  • Don’t have too many distracting electronic devices (TVs, Computers, etc.).

  • Don’t get cheap blinds or curtains. Tacky curtains are an eyesore. 

  • Don’t have white sheets if you have pets, especially cats.

  • Don’t overpay for quality bedroom furniture.

    No matter how you choose to arrange or decorate your home, it’s important to get quality furnishings without breaking the bank.

Curtains can change the whole dynamic of a room. For spring, we recommend changing out your old winter curtains with something more light and airy to ensure your room has a more radiant aura. Spring decorating is all about utilizing natural light, and by having your windows framed with brighter and more translucent curtains, you’ll be able to project that light further into your home.

Switch Out Your Pillows

When guests arrive at your home or enter your living room, decorative throw pillows are one of the first things they notice. It’s also one of the few things they might sit near and interact with. Updating your throw pillows is not only one of the easiest ways to transform you home for spring, it can also be one of the most impactful ways.

More Floral Arrangements

What would spring be like without a few floral arrangements? Floral decor is the cornerstone of any spring home. Although, we recommend not overdoing it; you wouldn’t want your place to start looking like a funeral home. A few tasteful arrangements on the dining room table and the accent furniture throughout your home can certainly do the trick.

No matter your decoration goals, head to a Bel Furniture near you or shop online to get the lowest prices possible on all your favorite decor and accessories.
