Many of us cannot afford to hire an interior designer to transform our home. Interior designers have some great tips to help you transform your bedroom into an elegant boudoir so here are some of those ideas you can implement easily yourself.

Colour is the starting point. When creating the perfect ambience in a bedroom, colour is key. Choose the colours that best suit the mood you are trying to achieve. Do not be afraid to use a bold or strong colour. You can also use the ceiling to add a splash or wallpaper if you do not want to paint the walls. Use colour on your furniture. Choose soft colours like pink, light blue or light grey if you want to achieve serenity. Dark colours are great for accessorising. Sage, navy, and plum work well.

The right lighting is essential to setting the mood. It is important to have a mixture of lighting – task light for reading, dressing and grooming and softer light for relaxing. Why not select a modern chandelier to light the ceiling and table lamps at bedside for a lower level of illumination? Ideal bedroom lighting should include a dimming switch to adjust the mood.

Interior designers will tell you to get rid of clutter. You feel calmer in a room when it is clear and there are fewer ‘things’. Built-in wardrobes have become very popular for this reason. Fitted Wardrobes are a great way to store all your belongings in multiple compartments, thereby reducing the need for extra furniture such as chests of drawers or free-standing cabinets.

Choose one focal point that is visually relaxing instead of many smaller ones. Create a focal point in the room with a large headboard that almost reaches the ceiling, for example.

Texture is often overlooked when it comes to colour, furniture, and pattern. For comfort and contrast, the feel of your bedroom is as important as its appearance. The plusher and softer the texture, the better for bedrooms. Material like silk, velvet, wood, and faux fur can all create a sense of tranquillity, peace, and comfort. Avoid chrome and metal if you want to create a calm atmosphere.

Finishing touches can enhance the atmosphere you create. Consider scented candles, flowers, or reed diffusers that have a scent you love and create a comforting, serene vibe for this important room.
