How to carry out the perfect luxury bedroom renovation and the mistakes to avoid in 2020

By Adrianna Johns on 31st January 2020

Life is too short to not spend your nights in a luxury bedroom, and if you sense that your private sanctuary is no longer offering the serenity and comfort you need, then perhaps it is time to upgrade by renovating and adding a dose of luxury and aesthetic appeal.

Before you begin the process, take a look and decide what features you would like to keep and change. Consider how much space you have to play around with and whether there is any way you could extend your bedroom area.

If you would like to keep any furnishings but have limited space available to place them during your renovation, then the best option will be to search “find a store near me” and place your valuables in a safe self-storage nearby.

From an entire redesign to simple decorative additions, we have created a guide that will help transform your dull bedroom into a luxurious haven — no expenses spared.

When it comes to a luxury redesign of your bedroom, the bed acts as the centrepiece

A redesign

If you have been considering a change for a while, you may have ideas already stored for inspiration. Analyse the elements that you are continually drawn towards and those that you are avoiding — a mood board will help create a clear idea of what you plan on creating for your space.

A mistake that many make when redesigning a room is following a dying trend. Whilst you may love a certain vibe, be aware that it may go out of fashion sooner than you think, leaving you with a less-than-proud feeling down the line. Regardless of this, remember that it is your space, therefore follow your needs and desires.

Planning the layout

Regardless of the space, it is important to examine it and draw a plan — this will help you analyse where you can place furnishings and how you can maximise the area.

One of the biggest mistakes that people make is starting the renovation without having a plan of the layout. Whether you are breaking down walls or simply moving furniture, you must be aware of the room’s infrastructure, as we would hate for you to accidentally block your plugins or smash through electric cables.

New lighting

There is nothing worse than having intense bright lighting in your bedroom because it is meant to be a space for relaxation and tranquillity. Rather than one main light source, placing lights around your room will help create a variety of moods and help the room serve different functions.

Place extra thought into your lighting because choosing the wrong light can ruin the entire design. Simply focus on two things: what does the fixture look like and what effect will the light have?

The right colours

Whilst wallpaper is easier to place and can create a specific theme, we recommend choosing the right paint colour that will help you create a relaxing vibe in the bedroom. Bright and vibrant colours may seem like a good idea, but a few months down the line you could be struggling to wind down, thereby neutral tones are the true winners.

A neutral palette leads to a calm, serene sense of mind and can be easily matched with your choice of furnishings. Avoid colours that scream intensity because they will create chaos and difficulty in colour matching — remember, the bedroom is for serenity.

Choosing your furnishings

When it comes to a luxury redesign of your bedroom, the bed acts as the centrepiece. The placement and colour tones will add to the sense of luxury, therefore it’s an incredibly important element to consider. A timeless scheme will work beautifully with any colour palette and will also add an elegant feel to your bedroom.

Choosing your furnishings is a fun and exciting process when renovating, but remember that placement is key to maximising your space. This is why the planning process at the beginning is important because it will help you choose the perfect furniture and decorations for your bedroom, as well as help you place it in a way that suits the space and works well with your infrastructure.
