When it comes to room decoration, usually people try to follow the most updated trends. While the furnishings and accessories—for a kid’s room in particular—can cost you a lot, why don’t you take your time to make use of the old furniture you have? Your antique finds can actually give stylish look; and these vintage bedroom ideas will give you the reference.
Using a vintage decor for a bedroom is more likely budget-friendly. Instead of purchasing overpriced pieces at your local big-box furniture stores, you’ll be hunting for preloved furnishing at flea markets and secondhand stores, or even online. Besides being mostly low priced, vintage pieces are commonly one-of-a-kind; so it might be perfect for you who loves exclusive design.
You should always remember that it’s not wise to sacrifice function for style when it comes to designing a room, and fortunately a vintage themed one will sure make your kid’s bedroom a cozy place to rest and relax from busy school days. So now it’s time for your creativity to work in creating a vintage feel.
Sweet Vintage Bedroom Ideas
Firstly, a quick way to turn a room into a vintage themed one is by using the antique metal bed frame. This gives a strong old-fashioned feel to the atmosphere, especially the stained or scuffed brass bedframes. Good thing is, you don’t have to repaint it. Let the flaws stay, it’s one of its feature. It’s just that you have to make sure it is still sturdy enough to use. Or if you prefer painting it, then white, black or green will be the perfect color.
Besides brass bedframes, you can also use rustic wooden bedframes to create the vintage look. The soft neutral colors, especially white, will be the best paint. A rattan bed is also another option.
Of course bed only is not enough. Find other antique pieces for the room just like drawers, wardrobe, or even the vintage themed wallpaper. Wooden furniture will help you a lot. Or else, you can also go with the wooden flooring.
And remember that in designing a vintage bedroom, you can’t just use any color you like since it usually comes in soft, calming tone. To make the room look even sweet and comfy, you can add up a canopy curtain above the bed.
