It might be easy for you to feel inspired once you see bedroom designs online. They look fascinating and you want to have the same style in your bedroom. There’s nothing wrong with getting a bit of inspiration from these designs, but you have to be cautious about following them. Some of them might not be worth it.
Some designs only look great in photos
It’s easy to photoshop images these days or choose a good angle that will highlight the positive features of the room. Therefore, you can’t conclude that you will have the same style because of a few photos.
Your bedroom is a different size
Some designs look amazing because those rooms are way bigger and more spacious. It means that the owner of the room had more freedom to come up with different designs or add more items inside. If you do the same, your bedroom might look cramped and messy.
You don’t need all the items
You might see some bedroom designs with a sofa, area rug or an office table. Apart from the bedroom size, these items exist in that room because the owner needs them. You might not have the same needs. Therefore, it makes no sense for you to buy the same items. List what you need for a comfortable bedroom and prioritize those items.
It’s your own space
Your bedroom needs to reflect your personality. It’s your space and you need to feel comfortable with it. Even if you succeed in copying other designs, you won’t feel at home because they won’t reflect your preferences. You need to have a bedroom that looks exactly how you want it to be. It doesn’t matter if it looks weird or funny to others. It’s your space and it’s not something you design to please others.
You will force yourself to spend a lot
Bedroom design doesn’t have to be expensive. However, the stylish bedrooms you see online might force you to buy things you don’t need to achieve the desired look. Your bedroom is only one of the areas at home you need to decorate. Don’t force yourself to spend a lot of money on one area alone and be smart in budgeting.
Be creative and be yourself
There are many things in life that you decide based on what others want. Even if you don’t like them, you have no choice but to make others satisfied. Your bedroom is the only place where you can make any changes you want without anyone judging you. Therefore, you need to make it true to your identity and preference.
There’s nothing wrong with trying to look for ideas online. However, there’s no pressure to copy the exact design. It’s okay if you can’t have the same results if you eventually get what you want. For instance, if you have a small bedroom, you might want to have fitted bedrooms to maximize the space and feel comfortable.
