Bedroom Decorating

How The Right Bedroom Decor Can Improve Your Mood

Here's a thought you probably never considered: Your bedroom is responsible for who you are right now.

Your bedroom is the place which you see last when you go to sleep and also is the first place you see when you wake in the morning.

These two are the times of the day when you are most receptive to receive any messages, good or bad.

Anything you see, feel, touch, smell, listen to at this time of the day will contribute in making your "personality", no matter whether it works for you or not.

That's why you can make use of this fundamental reality to unconsciously program yourself almost automatically, through the way you decorate your bedroom. In short you can essentially "design" your bedroom to become a "self-help" tool.

The term "design" in itself has a much wider scope than people often realize. Design is not just color scheme, materials, lighting, furniture and its arrangement in the bedroom. It includes taking into consideration the personality of the person who is going to use it.

While in a bedroom, a person is more relaxed, feels more secure and is open-minded to accept more positive messages. That's why it's necessary to understand the personality of a person before designing or decorating his/her bedroom.

His / her likes or dislikes, moods, and what motivates him/her can affect the entire bedroom design strategy. This design strategy includes the type of furniture to be used (iron, wood, cane contemporary), color schemes to be used (cool, warm, composite) types of flooring materials (tiles, carpets, wooden floors, PVC floors), and the overall theme of the bedroom (oriental, contemporary).

That's why a good bedroom design is one which creates a feeling of security for it's owner. Decorating the bedroom with the use of natural elements such as plants / flowers can greatly add to the motivational capacity of a bedroom space. Since plants and flowers already have a beauty of their own, they greatly enhance the aura of the bedroom.

A bedroom which is untidy, cluttered, disorganized, or lacking in decor creates a disharmonious atmosphere and has an unhealthy affect on your mental and emotional state. It can cause you to feel agitated, restless, or to have trouble relaxing. A room full of clutter and unnecessary "junk" gives a negative message to your subconscious. As much as possible, office work and computers should be avoided in a bedroom. If there is a scarcity of space, and it becomes necessary to tend to business or paperwork in your bedroom, take special care to keep the environment tidy and orderly. This requires a little effort, but it'll be well worth it.
