The bedroom is for rest and relaxation, and clutter only causes stress. So organize first, then furnish and decorate, all the while keeping these 7 rules in mind:

1. Don’t overcrowd it. Start with the essentials: A bed, nightstand and dresser. If that fills the space — stop there. If it feels sparse, add a few functional accents, like a full-length mirror, floor lamp or storage chest.

Tip: Furniture should be appropriately sized for the space, too — think a short headboard in a low-ceilinged room.

Tip: Use Home Made Simple TV design expert Kenneth Wingard’s advice for creating your design plan.

2. Unplug. Your bedroom should be a stress-free zone, and that means unplugging. Rid this restful space of computers, files, exercise equipment and other distractions.

3. Color matters.
This isn’t the place for loud, statement-making color. Instead, pull from a calming monochromatic palette of soft purples, blues or greens. If you prefer warmer hues, opt for comforting earth tones.

4. Less is more. Too many accessories can make the room feel chaotic, so take a minimalist approach. For instance, one oversized framed photograph above the bed, a trio of bud vases on the nightstand and a small sculpture on the dresser.

5. Indulge all your senses. Don’t just please the eyes. Delight other senses with luxuriously soft bedding, pillows and rugs; a stereo for playing comforting tunes; a tea-making station and calming aromas and scents.

6. Let it shine. Layer different types of lighting throughout the room: Ambient lighting to illuminate the entire area, task lighting to read and see what’s inside drawers, and accent lighting to set the mood.

7. Look up. Add visual interest to the ceiling with a chandelier or mobile. Even painting it a lighter shade of the wall color improves the view as you lie in bed.

Tip: Adorn your bedroom with a DIY headboard to really personalize your space.

Everyone wants their bedroom to be appealing. Many elements like Shoji Screens can add a bit of privacy to almost any room of your home. These screens can also be used to provide hidden storage in the bedroom. If you lack sufficient closet space, try using a Shoji screen to hide a clothing rack.
