ARCADIA, WI -- (Marketwired) -- 07/01/13 -- Whether you've just said "I do" or you're planning your upcoming nuptials, it's important to create a warm and inviting bedroom space that both the bride and the groom will love. Unless you're planning on buying a new house together, chances are one of you will be making the move into a bedroom that was designed with only one person's taste in mind.
So how can you quickly and easily create a comfortable and stylish space that incorporates both of your tastes?
"You don't have to spend a lot of money or make drastic changes in order to design a bedroom you'll both appreciate," says Brenda Dillon, VP of Merchandising. "Just a few subtle changes can help you turn a bedroom into a place where both of you can relax, unwind, rejuvenate and begin your new life together."
Ashley Furniture HomeStore offers nine ways to create a relaxing and stylish retreat:
1. Incorporate both of your styles. A bedroom should be a personal sanctuary, an inviting place that reflects both of your personalities and tastes. Before you make any changes, talk about the styles you both like and then find a middle ground. Do you prefer a modern style or more traditional furniture? Bold accents or subtle? Look through a few magazines for design inspiration and find décor you can both agree on.
2. Add a coat of paint. Painting is one of the most inexpensive ways to make a dramatic change to any space -- and choosing a soothing, fresh color will help you relax and unwind. If you're having trouble deciding on a color, find something in the room for inspiration. A color from a pillow, throw rug, bedding, vase, or your favorite artwork can be a good starting point. If one of you has bolder tastes, consider using it on just one accent wall. (An accent wall is usually the first wall that you see when entering a room... a wall with a fireplace or large piece of artwork is a great spot!)
