The problem with choosing bedroom décor that will stand the test of time, is that no matter how much we’re determined to keep our room as is, we eventually ache for some sort of a change.
A bedroom that stands the test of time is bedroom that doesn’t wear on you as the years go by. Unfortunately no matter how much you think you can solve this issue with good planning, there’s going to come a time when you yearn for a change.
So rather than battle against the urges that will inevitably happen, the better way to create a bedroom that stands the test of time is to plan for that inevitability.
Five Points to Consider When Choosing Bedroom Décor that stands the test of Time:
1. Start with the most expensive aspect of the room, the Bedroom Furniture
- Avoid ultra modern or trendy furniture. Choose solid wood furniture that can be refinished or painted in the years ahead. That way if you decide to change your furniture, you can have it refinished.
2. Choosing the Wall Colors
- Since walls can be repainted, choose any color that matches your choice for bedding, drapes and accessories. However, if your intention is to avoid repainting as much as possible, then go with a neutral wall color, and introduce splashes or color and design via accessories. Neutral colors are black, white, grey, and earth tones.
3. Choosing Bedding Sets
- In order to anticipate change, choose a Duvet Bedding Set. With a duvet set you’re able to easily change the look of your room in the future simply by changing the duvet cover. Keep several duvets in the closet and you can also change them for seasons or holidays.
4. Choosing Flooring that You Will Like for Decades
- Flooring is a big deal, you’ll have it in your space for a lot of years. If you’re able to select the flooring of your home, hardwood is a good idea. If you’re choosing carpeting, choose a neutral color. There’s no doubt at some point in the future you’ll get tired of your flooring, however if your floors are stone or hardwood you’ll be able to make a change by adding or removing area rugs. If you have wall to wall rug in your space and are wondering whether you can put an area rug over rug, wonder no more.
5. Choosing Bedroom Side Chairs
- In terms of style, choose something fairly traditional, as traditional shapes and colors will make it through decades. Skip ultra modern funky chairs! Again, in the future if you do decide you’d like a change you can either choose bedding and drapes that match your existing chair, or use a slipcover to change it up.
