We’ve all been there, one day we just wake up and decide that its time to decorate our homes, and one of the most relaxing areas of our abodes has to be the bedroom.

It is always advisable to set yourself a budget before you start the process of creating your perfect bedroom. The best way to achieve this is to make a list of any materials you will need such as paint, wallpaper, curtains, fabrics, flooring and furniture. You can use this list as a check sheet through the planning stages and add your costings next to them. This process will help you stay within your budget.
2: Space Planning
Get to know the space you are working with. Size can be the deciding factor in creating your dream bedroom. You should always start with a floor plan. Start by drawing a rough diagram on a blank sheet of paper to the shape of your room as if you was looking at it from above. You should also make sure you measure all of the internal walls and crevasses and mark them down in the appropriate area of your diagram. You should also measure all other areas from the ceilings down to the floor and also all windows and door frames. Once this has been done you will be ready to draw up a final diagram with all of the information you’ve gathered.
3: Choosing Colours & Inspiration
The best way to start your planning process is to create a vision. Everyone has a different idea on how they would feel more relaxed in their own homes. A good place to look during the early stages is through some of the social media platforms available such as Pinterest and Instagram.
