5 Bedroom Design Tips

Your bedroom is more than just a room with a bed.  A bedroom needs to have effective storage in place, it needs to be comfortable and it needs to have some style!  If you feel like your bedroom design choices have gotten a bit stale, take a look at these bedroom design tips from the Poulin Design Center here in Albuquerque!


Your bedroom needs to have smart storage solutions.  Ensure that you have enough closet space for all of your clothing and be sure to use baskets, drawers, hooks, and bins to get the most out of the space you have.  Having effective storage in place will ensure your bedroom doesn’t feel cluttered! Sometimes the best way to get organized is to donate some clothing to a thrift store. The result is a beautiful thing: more space!


Your flooring choices for the bedroom are very important.  The floors help to set the tone for the entire room.  Many homes feature wall-to-wall carpeting, but it’s quite possible to venture out into other flooring types for your bedroom design.  Consider adding in some solid hardwood flooring, engineered hardwood flooring, or luxury vinyl flooring. Laminate flooring is another very popular choice for bedroom design. You can always add in an area rug if you’re worried you’ll miss your carpeting!


Sometimes adding in the right piece of furniture is just what a room needs for its design. Consider adding in a chair to create a reading nook in your bedroom!  Maybe you want a bench along your window for you to drink your morning coffee.  Could you use another small bookshelf in your bedroom? Make sure each furniture piece is functional as you don’t want to create clutter.


Sometimes a bedroom design just needs some color! Consider adding in new bedding, new curtains or even a fresh coat of paint on the walls.  A room will look like new once you’ve redone your color scheme and added in some bright color.  Make sure you have a plan so that you don’t feature too many bold color choices simultaneously!


This may seem like an obvious one, but letting the light into your bedroom is a way to change up the design in a room.  Maybe you want to add a skylight, maybe you need new curtains, or maybe your lamps aren’t providing enough light in your room.  Take an inventory of the natural light as well as artificial light and see where you can increase the light in your bedroom design.
