How to decorate your bedroom as a newly wedded couple
By Jennifer Chukwujekwe
You have shared your hearts while dating, and now is time to share your home. So many decisions have to be made, one of which is how to decorate your bedroom.
The kitchen is the heart of the home, but I say the bedroom is the heart of your relationship. Let’s get that heart beating with these tips:
Paint the Bedroom Walls in Colour You Love
Nothing says a new start like a fresh coat of paint. Go creamy white, pale gray, or soft sand if you like a neutral or traditional style. Choose something brighter if you share a sense of drama, or go dark and deep if you both prefer an elegant, slightly moody look.
Combine Your Furniture
If you both had fully furnished apartments prior to getting married, you’ll both decide which furniture to keep and which should be replaced.
You don’t have to have matching furniture as they can be boring. Feel free to go eclectic with a mix of looks. If your tastes in furniture are closer in style, then you might not have to make any changes at all.
Consider the size and function of your bedroom and choose pieces that are suitably sized, and in the best condition for your new home.
Get a new mattress
Your shared bed is the most intimate spot in your home. So start afresh with a brand-new mattress selected together.
Ensure you purchase new beddings. It’s nice to know there is no “past history” with the bedding in your new home.
You should have at least one large piece of artwork over your headboard or over a dresser. However, if you really hate the other’s taste in artwork or decorative accessories, you’ll need to work out a compromise or purchase a new one, or better still, use one in the bedroom and another in another space
Remember—what’s most important is creating a happy new life together. Arguments over décor simply aren’t worth the strain on your relationship.
