There's no better time than now when it comes to redecorating or reorganizing your bedroom. After all, as we navigate into our new normal, working from home is clearly in the cards. So why not design your personal space into a conducive spot for both work and relaxation? Below, we pull tips and inspo from some of the coolest rooms we've spotted on K-dramas that are pure room goals.
If you’re into simple patterns...
1. Pair your wallpaper with bright-colored furniture.
Brighten up your room with a dainty wallpaper coupled with pops of color. Stick to a main color, like green here in Kim Mi So's apartment, and add complementing hues like pink and yellow.
2. Keep the prints clean and subtle by matching white furniture.
Now, if you prefer a more subdued take on your room, match your printed wallpaper with clean, white furniture.
If you like pretty lighting...
3. Keep your curtains in light neutral colors.
This way, natural light can still pass through your room without the need of additional lighting.
4. Carefully plan your room's light fixtures.
Strategically placed lamps and other light fixtures can truly open your space and keep focus on pieces that you want to be highlighted.
If you want to save space...
5. Be open to unconventional storage spaces.
Now you don’t have to live in your house’s attic so you can achieve this! The way Se Hwa’s room was designed totally gave us the idea to utilize the space under the bed as a hidden closet or hidden bookshelf.
6. Consider tearing down walls and doors.
If you're after maximum storage space, then opt out of putting more doors or walls in your room. Consider getting an open closet to both store and display your valued pieces.
7. Customize your storage needs.
Speaking of storage, you'll only be able to fully utilize your space if you know exactly what you're keeping in them. Are you a shoe collector? An avid stationery enthusiast like Wang Yeo? Perhaps you love collecting books? Evaluate the things you have and plan how you would want to store them before buying shelves and bins.
If you want something sophisticated and unique...
8. Don't be afraid to go big.
If you've got the space for it, don't be afraid to install a big art work or a mirror. By opting for one big piece, you'll be able to tie the whole place better without cluttering your everyday view.
