A bedroom should be a place of beauty and tranquility. To achieve this, keep in mind that your choice of décor will ultimately influence how your bedroom functions. To maintain a feeling of serenity, you can opt to hide specific, practical items within your furniture pieces, so they don’t detract from the design. Here's a few ideas you may not have considered.
Television – Most people have a TV in their bedroom nowadays. These screens don’t always look stylish, feel calming, or fit in with your décor. As such, it can negatively affect the peaceful look of the room. Some homeowners will hide their set within an armoire. Though this is a perfectly acceptable choice, try a television frame instead for a truly chic look. A television frame can look like a framed work of art or even a mirror when not in use. You merely hang it on the wall and incorporate it into your décor. No one will even realize that your television is there. When you’re ready to watch something, the artwork or mirror display will transform into a video screen with the touch of a button.
Speakers – Often people like to listen to music in their bedroom. Instead of placing speakers with a bunch of dangling wires in the room, use storage ottomans with built-in, wireless speakers. You can choose from multiple colors to get the perfect fit for your décor. Place two of them at the end of your bed for a fabulous look that’s also functional. Not only will you have the speakers you want, but you’ll have more storage and some additional seating that always comes in handy in any room.
Pet Bed – If you have a cat or dog who loves to sleep in the bedroom with you, then you probably have a bed or two set out just for them. Instead of putting a pet bed in the corner of the bedroom, you can try one or more nightstand pet houses. This type of nightstand contains an area underneath its top for pets. For cats, a small entry hole exists for them to go in and out. For dogs, the front of the nightstand swings open, so they can then enter and plop down on their bed. With such a nightstand, your pet’s bed can remain hidden when not in use. Place one on each side of your headboard. You’ll keep your pets comfortable and close without sacrificing the gorgeous look or the tranquil feeling in your room. If your furry family members insist on a bed of their own, go all out with something that will mesh with your decor:
Regardless of the design style of your home, you can include functional pieces that might not fit in with your specific décor by using unique furniture pieces that will hide whatever you need. You’ll love the result and so will your entire family.
