How to decorate your bedroom as newly wedded couple
You have shared your hearts while dating, and now it’s time to share your home as well. So many decisions have to be made: finances, family, career etc. and you’ll also need to decide 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 to decorate your shared space.
Paint the Bedroom Walls in Colour You Love
Renting or buying a new house, nothing says a new start like a fresh coat of paint. Go creamy white, pale grey, 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. The actual colour isn’t as important as the process of choosing the paint together.
Combine Your Furniture
One of the biggest decorating decisions you’ll have to face together, particularly if you both had fully furnished apartments prior to getting married, is which furniture to keep, which furniture is unnecessary, and which furniture should be replaced.
Firstly, you don’t have to have matching furniture in the bedroom (or in any area of the home, for that matter). Matched sets can be boring, so 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 furniture. Choose the 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. Because of this, many couples like to start fresh with a brand-new mattress selected together or choose the mattress that is in the best condition, or is the newest.
Ensure you purchase new beddings together. It’s nice to know there is no “past history” with any prior partners and the bedding in your new home.
Artwork and accessories require compromise.
You should have at least one large piece of artwork over your headboard or over a dresser, so if one of you has a suitably sized piece, that might be reason enough to give it a place of honour. 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.
