11 Jul Bedrooms – what’s on-trend in North London and East Finchley for 2019?
It’s the room that sets the tone for your day ahead, so you owe it to yourself to make sure that it gives you the best start possible. Do you know what’s on-trend for bedrooms in 2019?
When you wake up each morning, do you feel inspired, do you feel energised, or do you feel that maybe, just maybe – when you look up at the faded wallpaper and smudged handprints in the ten-year-old paintwork, the IKEA furniture you bought when you got married and the curtains that no longer quite close together – that it’s time for a change?
Here are just a few of the inspirational bedroom changes you might consider that we’ve compiled for you:
1. Say it with an accent
Accent walls are back in, whether with wallpaper or paint – make a statement by creating a wall in a different colour or texture behind your bed, but remember simple is also key so keep the décor of the rest of the room neutral or a shade of your accent wall.
2. Light it up
Natural light is always a bonus, so make sure windows are large and window dressings are unfussy. Supplementary lighting should maintain the modern, simple, unobtrusive, theme, with recessed lighting in walls and ceilings. Bedside lighting can be a little more fun or ornate, but match shades and base with the room’s décor.
3. Getting into space
Not everyone can afford a bedroom suite with walk-in dressing room and palatial wet room. Most of us have to make do with the space we have and that’s rarely enough. So, innovative storage solutions and space-savers are all the rage, whether they’re under-bed drawers, floating shelving units or bespoke cupboard units built to fit those awkward nooks and crannies in your bedroom.
4. A splash of colour
Life can feel a bit dreary sometimes, so we need something in our lives to give us a positive vibe. You may choose a simple and coordinated décor to achieve a chic look and you may choose clean lines for your furniture, but you need something a little rebellious in your bedroom too – a single piece of standout furniture or art that provides a splash of vibrant colour will do the job.
5. Or just go crazy
Where better to inject personality than in your bedroom. It doesn’t just have to be a place for sleeping – you can fashion it to truly represent your energetic character. Forget the single standout piece, make the whole room one big eclectic mix of colours and forms that represent you. While concrete walls and accented colours may be in, we say, most of all, be ‘you’, and if that means mixing stripes with circles then do it, squared edges with round tables, monochrome with rainbows, then just go crazy.
