As you redesign your bedrooms, make sure to avoid these common mistakes which will lead to your room looking poorly planned and very ordinary.

Choosing the wrong colour

Having no focal point

Your bedroom’s focal point should always be your well-made bed. After all, it is the most important part of your bedroom. Make sure it stands out and it is the first thing anyone sees as they enter your room.

Little storage space

Stop placing your clutter on chairs or leaving them scattered on the floor. Allot storage space for these things in your bedroom by buying extra decorative boxes or shelves, which you can strategically use as additional accent pieces for your bedroom.

Poor lighting

It’s not enough to have a single center light source for your bedroom. Buy bedside lamps or other accent lighting to add drama and style to your bedroom. These additional lights can also serve as your night light.

No theme

Sometimes, having no theme is the main problem why your room looks cluttered and unorganized. A theme puts order to any space because it guides you what fixtures to buy, what colors to use, and what accent pieces to add. It’s wise to decide on a central theme to lessen the headache when you mix and match styles.

Forgetting about window treatment

Often, windows are forgotten when we design spaces. But make no mistake to forget this again because without window treatment, your bedroom will look incomplete and bare.

Clashing prints in beddings

There’s no harm in using plain beddings. Sometimes, it even matches better with your other existing bedroom fixtures. But if you wish to have prints on your bed, go for it! Just remember to maintain that serene and relaxing vibe with whatever print or colour you choose.
