How to Decorate Your Bedroom

Pick up some home decorating ideas for the bedroom from interior designer Blanche Garcia in this Howcast video.


Let's get to basics, especially in the bedroom. This is a space that is really different from the rest of the house. The reason I say that is because you don't have to go overboard in the bedroom. The bedroom, there are some simple things that you need to pay attention to. One is that you want to make sure it's comfortable above all else that it's comfortable. So everything, texture is very important. The carpeting under your feet when you wake up in the morning.

The bedding, sheet thread count, you want to make sure that you're probably above a 350, but you don't really need to go above a 700. When you go above 700 you really can't feel the difference. So comfort is really important in the bedroom. Lighting is really important in the bedroom, so you want to make sure you have, maybe dimmer switches on all of your light fixtures. Sometimes you can add those really easily from the hardware store, for a couple of dollars on all of your lamps.

Because who wants really blaring light at you, when you're trying to relax and go to sleep. Another thing that you want to consider is storage. Why is that important? Because you don't want all of your things just thrown all over the room. You want make sure that your nightstands aren't covered with tons of books and everything is all messy, so you want everything to be put away in it's place. If you keep it like that and then maybe some lighter colors, it's always going to be serene and soothing. Those are some bedroom basics, so that you're always assured that your bedroom is a warm and welcoming place when you come home at the end of the day, and also where you wake up in the morning.
