6 Things to Know Before You Start Redesigning Your Bedroom on Your Own

Redesigning your bedroom can be overwhelming. There are many magazines and TV shows with tons of different styles and designs, some might fit your taste while others don’t. If you’re thinking about redesigning your bedroom, don’t fret—it can be done and can be fun, too. Here are six things you need to know when redesigning your bedroom on your own.

1. Take Stock in Space, Size, and Storage

Before any shopping is done, it’s important to know the space and size of your bedroom. Measuring your bedroom can take time, but it’s worth it in the long run—no one wants to buy a mattress that’s too big for the room. Many bedrooms are square or rectangle, which can be easily measured using a measuring tape. All you need are the length and width.

There is a general guideline for room size and mattress size:

Remember that this room size and mattress size guide is a guide—they’re not rules. What really matters is how much room you’re wanting to have once the mattress is in the bedroom. A twin bed can be a perfect addition to a large room if ample storage and walking space is crucial to you.

2. Don’t Skip on a Quality Mattress

When it comes to picking a new mattress, no two mattresses are made the same. Not only is size important, but also comfort and type as well. There are a variety of different levels of comfort (such as soft, medium, and firm), types (such as foam, hybrid, or spring), as well as different functions and features.

The best way to find your match is by giving it a try in person. No one will judge you for laying back and assuming the sleep position. We have tons of different brands and deals on a wide variety of mattresses, and top brands such as Tempur-pedic, Sealy, and Bedgear. No matter what kind of bed you pick, it’s key to pick a quality mattress. A good mattress helps your health, back, your mood, and doesn’t have to break the bank.

3. Plan Your Style

After deciding on a mattress, it’s now time to focus on the type of style for your bedroom. Some of the most popular are coastal, cottage, modern, contemporary, and bohemian. Before deciding on a specific style, do your research. Making a style board of pictures from magazines or TV, or creating a Pinterest board can help you get inspired. Make note of the existing furniture pieces you currently have in your home and see if they can be incorporated into your bedroom redesign. Style is personal—make sure your bedroom is filled with the colors, trends, and textures you like.


4. Don’t Forget the Staples and Sets

Once you’ve decided on a style for the bedroom, it’s time to consider the furniture pieces that will be the anchor of your design. Buying individual pieces of furniture can be time-consuming and difficult—not all furniture is made the same or looks the same. Purchasing a bedroom set can make a room look more uniform and organized as these pieces are the same color and of the same material. We have a variety of furniture sets in different styles, depending on what you and your room need.

5. Adding Statement Pieces

Mixing in statement pieces can make or break a space, but they are an effortless way to add personality to your furniture set. Be sure not to add too many statement pieces as this can overcrowd your furniture. One good piece is all a room needs to truly pop, so take time to find a unique chair or bench to incorporate into your space. Our diverse amount of statement pieces in different colors and styles will aid your search for the perfect one.

6. Accessorize as Needed

It’s easy to get carried away. Less is more when it comes to accessories—play around with throw pillows, vases, and wall décor to see how your room flows. Remember that accessories frame your space, not take over.

A pro design tip is to start with three of the top accessories below, and then add as you bring your new space to life.

Rugs can draw the eye to the focal point of your room and add a pop of color or pattern.
Mirrors are a great way to make your space seem larger and add more light.
Pillows & Throws are great ways to add style and create an inviting bed. (Don’t overdo it, as you do have to make the bed each morning).
Lamps are both decorative and functional, whether large corner or small nightstand this is a great style accent.
Wall Art is always a must and the perfect way to tie your color and design style together.
