2 Key Ideas To Include When Designing A Luxurious Bedroom

by Toni Gonzalez

In recent years, there has been a big swing towards a minimalist and pared back look in interior design. While popular, this streamlined approach to design doesn't appeal to everyone and you may prefer a more luxurious feel for your home. This is often the case when it comes to designing a look for the bedroom, even for those who embrace a simpler look in other spaces within the house.

Bedrooms are for relaxation and comfort and a more luxurious design can help to create a sumptuous and serene haven for you to retreat to at the end of the day. For a truly opulent and welcoming bedroom, here are two of the key design principles that you should aim to include when planning a new look for your bedroom.

1. The bed as the centerpiece

In the bedroom, the bed is the most important item and is the centerpiece whatever style is chosen. When you're hoping to create a truly luxurious room, the bed should be indulgent, lavish, and large. Opt for the biggest bed that is still proportionate to the size of your bedroom and then proceed to dress it accordingly.

An oversized headboard which is padded and covered with a rich fabric will help to create a feeling of grandeur. Add some high-quality bedding, a sinful number of decorative pillows, and a silky or faux fur throw rug to complete the decadent and inviting feature.

2. Lighting as decor

The choice of lighting is an important part of interior design for any room in the house. In the bedroom, it can make the difference between creating a good room and a great room. The right lighting provides the mood for the bedroom, so you'll need to make sure that your choices add to the ambiance and richness of your bedroom.

Adding dimming switches to all of your lighting fixtures is a great way for you to control the level of light in the room and create different moods for different times. Lighting can also highlight and enhance other features such as paintings and furniture items. Finally, the light fittings themselves can become a decorative feature, such as ornate chandeliers or sculptural bedside lamps.

Many people find it difficult to take their ideas and translate them into a beautiful and cohesive design for their bedroom. If this sounds like you, then you may benefit from the input of a professional interior designer, such as from Raquel Garcia Design, to help you create the stunning and luxurious bedroom that you have been dreaming about.
