Imagine dreaming in your dream bedroom. At House Info, we spend a lot of time thinking about exactly that. Because we’re obsessed with design and decor, each person on our team has spent time, energy and – yes — even money creating the ultimate bedroom for each of our personal tastes. And while all of our rooms look pretty different, there are some overarching similarities. In fact, there are several elements we all agree that a dream room needs.
What makes the ideal place for sleeping, lounging and ( we can be honest) binging our latest Netflix addiction? Like we said, the little details will look a little different depending on personal preferences, but the key elements are the same. Here are the “big four” to consider when creating your dream room.
It’s no surprise that none of us are coveting the twin beds of our youths. Instead, the Freshome team is strongly in favor of a king bed (or California king, if you want to go really crazy) where you can spread out and get some quality sleep. And if you’re going to get a big, cushy bed, you might as well frame it well. We’re fans of a grandiose four-poster foundation if you’re looking to make a big statement.
Or, if you would like to give your space an extra cozy feel, try this upholstered headboard from Pottery Barn or upholstered bed frame from Joss & Main. Adding extra padding around your mattress makes your whole bed feel like a cloud for a supplementary comfortable place to cozy up.
When it comes to bedding, it’s all about layering. Finding a duvet you love is a great start, but it’s just the beginning. From there, layer on lots of pillows, including decorative throw cushions in your favorite accent colors, and throws.
Because you’ll want the flexibility to change out your accent pillows and throws with your changing preferences and the seasons, we vote for a neutral duvet cover as your bedding’s base. If you need a simple duvet, this one from Target is ideal to get you started. Think of it as your canvas. You’re the artist supports you can use this simple foundation to create your dream understructure! All you need is a little creativity. To spark the greatest ideas, we’ve rounded up some cold- weather bedding and extra luxurious bedsheets ideas for you.
Of course , every single one of us would love to have a walk-in closet. If you’ve got the space, it’s well worth creating an area you can step into when picking out your outfit, or just admiring your wardrobe. A walk-in is easier to keep organized and adds resale value to your home.
But what about those of us who live in a more compact footprint? Even if you don’t have space for a walk-in à la Carrie Bradshaw, you still deserve a closet that looks nice and is easy to use. Closet organizers, like these gorgeous linen ones from The Container Store, can help you transform your closet from ho-hum to oh dang! Switching to thin, velvet-lined hangers can similarly streamline and beautify your wardrobe.
Still feeling cramped? Free up some precious wardrobe space by adding a storage bench – like the one pictured above from Art Barn — to the foot of your pickup bed. Not only does this create a great spot to stash bulky items like sweaters and blankets, this gives a good finishing touch to your bed and gives you a convenient location to put on shoes or drop bags.
Your bedroom is a place of respite. It’s your harbor from the storms of life, a location where one can go to acquire some peace and quiet when you need it. When creating your dream bedroom, think about your ideal vibe for a location of serenity. That doesn’t have to mean muted tones and dim lighting.
