New season, new bedroom. Here’s what to consider when updating your bedroom décor this autumn.
The change of season is a perfect time to think about updating the interior décor in your home, and find something more suitable for the time of year. Due to the changes to natural lighting and temperature, there are subtle tweaks you can make to your home to make sure that is both stylish and prepared for the cold winter ahead.
Because we have been relying on natural sunlight throughout summer, as the nights close in sooner we will be turning the lights on more and more. There are a range of lighting available to suit any style or theme such as wall or ceiling lamps, there are many Pinterest boards about bedroom lighting that you can use for inspiration, for example this board here shows a range of elegant bedroom lighting whereas this board looks more at stylish bedroom lighting, there are a range of Pinterest boards out there to help you with decoration ideas – just use the search function.
Another good way to warm up your home décor for autumn is by adding some new textures to your furniture. Hard floorings can be cold so try adding a rug or throw as a floor covering; not only will it keep your feet warm but by choosing the correct colour pallet you can also add to the ambient seasonal feel that you are trying to create. Throws can also be added to sofas and chairs to make them both warmer and to create a new look for them. If re-upholstering is not necessary, then throws are a cheaper option and of course you can keep changing the styles of your throws as you update your décor in the future. Websites such as ace interior design give hints and tips on simple but effective methods to keep your home looking modern and up to date. You can also check online furniture stores to see what room accessories are available.
Depending on your budget you may want to purchase some new furniture, especially with winter coming a new bed may be a good investment. It is well documented that mattresses need to be changed on average every 7/8 years otherwise it can cause physical problems for you or harbour bacteria and what better place to snuggle up and keep warm. Bedstar have a wide range of beds suitable for all styles and budgets, as well as offering sound bed advice on their website.
