Using a Four Poster Bed to Liven Your Decor

Do you look at your bedroom and get tired of staring at the same walls, pictures, bedding, and furniture? If so, it might be time to liven things up with some paint and a four poster bed.

Planning Your Redecorating Scheme

Redecorating can be exciting if you make a plan and decide how much you are going to spend. Sit down in your bedroom with a pencil and a blank sheet of paper. Draw the shape of your room and where the windows are located. Four poster beds are a grand piece of furniture so try to design the room to fit around it. At this time it is also a good idea to decide if you want to go with a theme, like decorating your bedroom with a palm leaf ceiling fan and a big bamboo tree. This will give your space that island getaway sensation. Instead of a theme, you may just want to use colors to make the room warm and inviting.


Next, measure your space and bring it down to scale for your room planner. The size of your four poster bed in contrast to the area of your wall lets you know where the bed will fit. The wall with the windows is a good place to put your dressers and other non-bulky furniture. The diagram will give you an idea of how your bedroom will look.

Color Selections

Now it is time to choose your colors. The colors can set a mood in a room. Blue is supposed to bring a sense of peace and tranquility, green brings calm and soothing feelings, and red promotes a sense of desire and strength. It is important to choose a color that will make your bedroom a place of refuge and relaxation.

Room Decor

The last things to buy are the decorations. For example, if you have an island theme, add some plants and bamboo. Your bedding’s design should invoke a tropical feel. Pictures of oceans or palm trees are the perfect finishing touches.

All you have to do then is buy all of the items that you need to make your design (the fun part). Most department stores have bed frames for sale and you can also buy any other items you need at the same time. Sometimes you can even get a package deal with matching furniture. All you have to do then is wait for it to be delivered and before no time you will have a bedroom that promotes rest and relaxation!
