If you want to have a theme for your room, one theme that you should consider is an Egyptian inspired bedroom. Imagine the rooms of kings and queens during the olden days. They have luxurious and elegant beds, with the softest sheets. It does not matter if you are on a tight budget. You can come up with an Egyptian inspired room if you just make use of the resources that are already available to you. You will just have to purchase some other items that you can use as accent pieces for your bedroom.
Here are some tips that you can use to make your Egyptian bedroom:
Color. The most prevalent color in Egyptian costumes, clothes, designs and themes is gold. You do not necessarily have to paint your entire room in gold. You can just use this as an accent color that will tie up the room together and make it look as elegant as an Egyptian royalty’s room. You can add gold to the trimmings of your curtains or to the handles of your closets.
Wall accents. One thing that you can do to add accents to your walls is by putting up framed photos of pyramids or popular personalities in Egypt, such as King Tut or Cleopatra. You can use gold frames for these pictures.
Flooring. There is something you can do with your flooring to make it more Egyptian. Make sure that you clean your floors and then, place carpets or rugs in different bold colors. Some of the colors that you can choose are deep green and red or dark blue and royal purple. Arrange them on your floor to create an elegant rug. If you want, you can also add throw pillows and large pillows where you can lounge. Just remember to keep the color scheme.
Bed. The focal point of your bedroom should be your bed. What you can do is purchase Egyptian cotton sheets, if you are willing to splurge. These sheets feel so soft that you will go straight to sleep. You can add accent pillows in colors, such as red, purple or green with gold frills. Another thing that will tie up your bed’s appearance with the Egyptian theme is if you put a canopy over your bed.
Decoration. For decorations, you can use statues or vases. If you do not want to spend a lot of money on real statues, you can search for some pieces from yard sales and paint them a rich gold color. This goes for vases too. You can put these on top on end tables or on the corners of your room.
These are some of the tips that you can use if you want to have an Egyptian themed room. You may already have some of the items that you can use so this will save you some money. You can search for Egyptian themed bedrooms online and use that as your inspiration in creating your own Egyptian themed bedroom.
