The bedroom is where most people spend a good part of their day unwinding after a long day of work. It’s no surprise then, that we’d put in so much effort and money in making this part of the home delightful.
While our small-space living lifestyle might seem to limit options available for bedroom, homeowners and designers have overcome this with many creative and stylish executions. On Houzz, you’ll find limitless design options for the bedroom for the home. Here are some tips to guide you in finding bedroom inspirations and ideas on Houzz.
Which bedroom am I looking to renovate?
Whether you live in a HDB apartment, condo, or landed property, ask yourself which bedroom you’re looking to renovate and what your goals are. Is it the master bedroom? If so, this might look different from the other bedrooms in your home.
Your search on Houzz might be guided by narrowing down for “master bedrooms”. If you’re welcoming a new member into your household, and are looking to decorate a room for the young one, you should do the same for searches for “kids bedroom”, or have a look in the kids’ rooms photos
Doing specific searches for “small bedrooms” or “guest bedrooms” might be helpful. If you intend your guest bedroom to double up as a study, be sure to look at the home office
photos as well.
What furniture and decor do I need for my bedroom?
The basic bedroom set is made up of
- the bed
- bedside tables
- bedside lighting
- a dressing table and seating
Depending on your bedroom layout and type of bedroom, some of these furniture can do double duty, such as a bedframe or headboard that can also act as storage. Are you looking to do up a guest bedroom to also be a study or home office? Search for bedrooms or home offices
with a fold-out / fold away bed or sofa bed.
What type of bed would I prefer?
Platform beds have become increasingly popular, and it’s also something you can specifically look for within Houzz’s bedroom photos as well. This also works if you’re looking for bedframes with storage, folding, four poster, or canopy beds as well.
