Tone of the Room
It is necessary to understand what it is that you want to feel when you enter the room. For instance, some individuals like red LED lights in their room, and on the other hand some feel it comes out a little too strong. It is all about where your comfort lies. Instead of following a trend, it would be much better if it suits your test. The tone of the room will, accordingly, suit your taste and you can make adjustments as per your convenience.
Go through analogues, go through magazines, surf the internet, check up with your social media (Instagram and Pinterest being primary ones) to keep updated with new trends and most importantly consult an interior designer, since there cannot be a substitute for professional assistance.
Let it revolve around your lifestyle
Instead of considering a certain trend or trying to be idealistic about a certain way of having your room designed, it is best to consider your current lifestyle. This, basically, means that the design must consider and revolve around your lifestyle and your daily routine. Considering these will help you make sure that the room suits you ergonomically and logistically.
Reduce the clutter
At the time of renovation, the primary objective would be to remove everything that is unnecessary. It is also important to consider the space you allot all those decorative pieces or show pieces. Lesser congested rooms tend to make it appear as if the room is bigger and spacious.
Prepare a layout
The floor plan of the room with measurements and then putting it on paper as to what you actually want. The interior designers can handle the designing part but you need to draw it out on paper to show your interior designer what you exactly need. This will also help you visualize the plan better. This plan need not be very professional but merely needs you to chalk out the placements of doors, windows, furniture etc.
Shades and Colors
The colors of your room are pretty much determined by what type of room it is, and what kind of furniture is going to be in it. The color palette of the room tends to revolve around a focused furniture piece, so it's better to make purchases of this main piece first, and then accordingly match the colors. For instance, if you consider designing a living room, the colors would pretty much come from focus points such as sofas, and then the colors of vaze, the walls, teapot etc. are matched to it. If you choose to have a certain color theme, or want a certain tone of the room you could play around with dark or bright colors too.
People often apply analogous color schemes — colors adjacent to each other on the color wheel, such as blue and green, which are more soothing and relaxing, and can be used best in less formal or private spaces. Bedrooms, being a place for resting and recovering, these colors can be used here.
Another way to choose colors are by dividing the colors into ratios of 60 percent of a dominant color (walls and Big furniture ), 30 percent of a secondary color (textile covering furniture
such as beds or sofas) and 10 percent of an accent color (accessories).
Consult an interior designer to know more themes and patterns which can be used.
Anchor Pieces and Secondary Furniture
Like we did while deciding the color palette, it is necessary to apply the same while designing the layout and while buying the furniture as well. Identify the anchor piece or the focus point of the room and make sure the secondary furniture, colors and the layout as a whole compliment it. Identifying your anchor point, in this case, is the key.
Bed Covers, Curtains and Carpets
As we discussed earlier, these too need to go with the anchor piece and the colors of the wall, else it would look very out of place. Bed covers are usually neglected, but not considering the colors palette at the time of selecting the sheets or covers would certainly be noticeable. Afterall, in the case of a bedroom, your anchor point is your bed.
Well Lit Rooms are LIT
A well-lit room makes the room look less congested and bigger. Which is why, it is recommended to have a bigger window to let more of the natural light enter the room, it brings about a fresh look and gives you the freedom to play around with colors more. In a room with lesser access to natural light, you will be either forced to stick to darker colors or purposely use light colors to compensate for the same.
