Many of us are guilty of getting bored with our homes very quickly. We spend a lot of time in them (especially this year!), and we start to take them for granted. We stop seeing those elements and details that we once loved. Instead, we can only see the clutter, the mess, and the worn old furniture. Unfortunately, however, few of us have the time or money to completely redecorate every time we get a little bored. So, instead, we must find ways to create rooms that will last. Rooms that will delight us for years to come, and that won’t wear out, break or stain.
The bedroom is a great place to start. Our bedrooms are exceptionally important. They are the one room in the house that we don’t design with other people in mind. Your bedroom is for you. That makes it the perfect place to get creative and express yourself.
1. Invest in Quality
Furniture can be tricky. We often think that expensive means high-quality. But, this isn’t always the case. There’s a fine line between paying for high-quality workmanship and materials and just paying for a brand name.
Good quality furniture doesn’t have to be expensive. You can get great deals on well-made bedroom furniture sturdy like Legacy Classic, which will last and withstand the wear and tear of daily life.
2. Stay Away from Trends
Décor has trends and fashions, just like everything else. They change and evolve, just like clothing fashions and the looks that we see on the high street.
If you only ever shop what is in style, your home will only be fashionable for a few months, a year if you are lucky.
Instead, buy what you love. By all means, look at what’s in style and what is on the high-street, but only buy things that you love and will still love when the fashions change.
3. Learn More About Your Taste
To avoid trends, you might need to take some time to get to know yourself and what you like. Create mood boards, look on Pinterest, think about what you like in other people’s homes, and the houses you see on TV.
4. Get into Good Habits
Your bedroom will last longer, and you’ll love it for longer if you look after it. Get into good habits. Make your bed daily, keep things tidy, and vacuum and dust at least once a week.
5. Make it Future Proof
Your bedroom might not need to change too much in the next few years. But, if you’ve got children at home, you might find that you have to update their rooms regularly to match your growing needs.
It’s often better to keep things simple. Buy furniture that will grow with them, add pops of color and personality with posters and prints that can be changed regularly, and keep everything else reasonably plain.
Designing rooms that will last can cost more than making smaller upgrades and purchasing cheaper furniture and accessories. But, by lasting for longer, ultimately, you will save money and get more enjoyment from your décor.
