If you want to re-design your room, you can add a different dynamic simply by creating a fabulous focal point. Creating a bed that makes a statement is simple; here are 10 ways to make your bed the main focus of the room.
10 – Upgrade It
A single bed is never going to look as striking as a king size bed so if you really want to make a difference to your room, it is wise to upgrade your small bed for a larger more luxurious design.
09 – Have a Headboard
If you really want a bed that is truly unique, why not have a bespoke headboard designed?
08 – Add Artwork
If you don’t want to invest in a headboard, a statement piece of art can be just as mesmerising.
07 – Get Techy
If you have cash to splash, have your favourite technology built in to your bed design. Beds with built in televisions are becoming more and more popular and are set to be a huge home décor trend in 2013.
06 – Go Faux
Browse the pages of Pinterest for inspiration and you are sure to find a whole range of jaw dropping designs. Faux leather beds are set to be a popular décor trend that complements contemporary style bedrooms well.
05 – Move It Around
If you want to create a focal point in your bedroom, the first thing you need to do is look at the positioning of your bed. Does it take centre stage? Your bed should be the first thing that catches your eye when you enter the room and having your bed in a central position can help you achieve this.
04 – Use Lighting
If you want to make your bed stand out, pendant lighting at either side of your bed will create instant impact.
03 – Choose Contrasting Colours
If your bed blends into the rest of your room, you can make it stand out simply by investing in some new bedding. If the rest of your room is decorated in neutral colours, add a pop of colour with neon bed linen. If you don’t want to choose bedding in one block colour, tone it down and choose bedding that boasts neon accents. By using contrasting colours you will ensure that the bed stands out from the rest of the room.
02 – Take a Step Up
If you want to put emphasis on a particular piece of furniture such as the bed, you could elevate it by using a couple of steps.
01 – Make it Luxurious
Luxurious linens, plush pillows and a striking bed spread can turn an average bed into something spectacular. If you want to draw as much attention to your bed as possible, designer bedding will add more than a little glamour to your room.
