Ideas to Mix and Match Bedroom Furnishing

When working or revamping on the home front, it makes sense to play around with the interiors to achieve a whole new look. Your bedroom can sure do with an occasional tweak here and there.

Dejunk Your Bedroom With These Marvelously Creative Storage Ideas

Bedrooms are the most personal spaces in our respective houses. It is the one place in the entire house which is completely your own. You can decorate it the way you want, choose the furniture style you want, have curtains, drapes or blinds, have a kingly royal bed or a funky bunk bed. But just as you are responsible to furnish and beautify your bedroom, you are also responsible for the mess that is created in your bedroom!

Do You Know When the Time is Right to Change a Mattress

You’ll Be Stumped!
If a person sleeps for 7 hours each day, he’ll spend around 2,500 hours in bed in a year. So assuming that the mattress is 8 years old, we can conclude that he spent more than 20,000 hours on it!

We spend one-third of our lives sleeping, yet we tend to ignore our mattress. Good sleep is the foundation of a healthy body. And, a quality mattress is essential for good sleep. So, are you wondering how often should you change your mattress? Here we list down the basic criteria.

Replace a Bed Mattress If:

Mattress is showing signs of wear and tear
This one’s a no brainer. If the mattress is making weird noises or you can feel the spring too well, it’s time to replace it. You might also observe other visible signs of wear and tear. Don’t just flip and continue using a dirty mattress.

You are waking up tired
This is a pointer you simply cannot ignore. Comfort is an absolute prerequisite when buying a mattress. Over a period of time, it might lose its shape or sturdiness. If you are waking up tired, it’s high time you replace it.

Mattress is more than 8 years old
Though the exact time when one should change the mattress depends on the mattress brand and type, most need to be replaced every 8-10 years. It is a good habit to change it every 8 years as your lifestyle or physical features like height or weight may change over that duration.

Your partner is not comfortable
A good mattress should support both partners. If your partner is tossing and turning all night, it means the mattress is not reducing motion transfer. It is just a sign that replacement is on the cards.

The mattress has become lumpy or saggy

Tips on How to Paint Your Bedroom
The color schemes you choose for your bedroom are very important. No matter how well you plan the interior of your bedroom, if you choose the wrong paint colors, you’ll have a bedroom that looks smaller than it should. There are three things you should always remember while painting your bedroom. First, use nude, natural or pastel colors. Second, always paint the ceiling a shade lighter than the walls. A darker shade will give you the effect of a ceiling closing in, on your bedroom. Third, the paint colors should also be lighter than the interiors of your bedroom. Dark paint colors give rise to a claustrophobic atmosphere, and makes the

Get Organized and Decluttered By Using These Small Bedroom Designs

Theme
Asian bedroom
Mix up solid earthy colors like deep green or burgundy for the walls, and hang curtains which match the walls to bring about a feel of the Asian style. Apart from the wall colors and curtains, the accessories hold the key to an Asian themed small bedroom design. Bamboo furniture, blinds, silk bedding and drapes, lamps and lanterns are few areas which you can work on to obtain an oriental home decor. Similarly, you can go for cottage theme or any theme with a good color scheme.

Furniture

Beds
The focal point of any bedroom is obviously the bed. While furnishing a small bedroom, keep in mind that the bed is also the biggest space occupying object in the room, hence a smaller but comfortable bed is the right furniture in a small bedroom to create the illusion of space. Buying a low level bed is another way of making the bed seem smaller than it actually is. For kids’ bedroom, you can have bunk beds and chests cum tables for storage.

Closets
Shop for closets and dressers which are long and take up minimum of the floor space. For storage, use the under bed area, but that doesn’t necessarily mean shoving everything under the bed. Keep everything as neatly as possible because neat and clean bedrooms appear roomier than a cluttered one.

Colors
Wall colors play a crucial role in making the room seem bigger. Light, pastel shades are the most popular interior paint colors and combinations. Choose only one color for the entire room as more colors on the walls give the impression of a smaller room. Cucumber green is one of the most relaxing color for adorning the walls. Also, the dusty navy hue can bring a tropical feel to the walls. Texturing the wall paints should be
