Decorating a bedroom, like most things in a relationship, requires compromises. But even if you don’t get everything you want, that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice style.
Plan your space carefully.
If you’re single, press one side of your bed against the wall and it wouldn’t matter. But when you’re part of a couple, that’s pretty inconsiderate. Make sure the bed is positioned so that you can comfortably get in from either side, and leave enough space so that both of you can have a (matching) bedside table.
Make organization a priority.
In any relationship, one person tends to be tidy and tidy and the other tends to be … less tidy. Prepare for success (and avoid passive-aggressive comments) by adding tons of organizational accessories to each of you, such as: B. coat hooks, valet service trays and benches with integrated storage space. The more rooms you have to hang up and stow away your belongings at a time, the less likely it is that you will argue about it.
Choose cozy textiles.
Your bedroom should be a warm, intimate space. So choose soft and inviting linens and accents like cashmere throws, decorative faux fur pillows, and soft, high quality sheets. Layer fabrics so that the bed feels like a place the two of you will never want to leave.
Set the mood with light.
Skip the harsh overhead lighting in favor of softer (and more flattering) options like bedside lamps and possibly an extra floor lamp. Get three-way lights or bulbs so you can adjust the brightness.
