1. Simple Styling

A bedroom design makeover doesn’t need to be extravagant, after all, it’s a place for resting. Begin by removing unnecessary furnishings and random items that take up space. Overfilled rooms and clutter can raise anxiety and cause stress–the complete OPPOSITE of what you want from your bedroom vibe. If your master doubles as a home office or workout space, no worries, plan out designated areas for these activities. Make sure to keep the room organized, and put items away when you’re done using them for the day.

2. Allow for Movement

Navigating your bedroom from one end to the other should be easy. A simple bedroom design will ensure a direct path to the closets, en suite bath and dressers. It’s best to place the bed away from the door due to its large scale, this way, you’ll establish open and clear floor space to walk. Your bedroom should feel open and airy, not stuffy and challenging to get around.

3. Custom Bedroom Windows

We can all agree that sunshine is a beautiful thing, especially in Minnesota. But when it wakes us up too early in the morning, we have a problem. This is why custom window treatments are such an important step in your bedroom design. Bedroom window coverings should provide both privacy and light control. This way the best environment is achieved. You know your home and your sleeping habits best, will you need room darkening or blackout shades? We can help you decide.

Creatures of habit? Us, too.

You’ll love the addition of smart shades! Schedule your room darkening shades to adjust and avoid early morning sunshine, then, have them rise up and let the light in. When night falls, your smart shades can be set to close again, keeping your bedroom private. In addition, smart shades are known to provide an additional level of energy efficiency by protecting your home from extreme temps in the winter and summer months. If all of this sounds amazing, home automation could be an excellent way to upgrade your dreamy bedroom design.

4. See the Light

Other than sleeping, how else do you use your bedroom space? Is it your favorite place to relax with a book, plan a family vacation or binge watch tv? No matter the activity or time of day, it’s important to have the right lighting. We suggest introducing different levels of light into your design. Add a floor lamp next to a chair, a beautiful chandelier in the center of the room or wall sconces to complement your look. Along with adding elevated style to your bedroom design, they are a great source of light for everyday activities.
