Tips For Red Bedroom Furniture
Use this furniture in a kids’ room. This will revive the old pieces they’ve had for ages and allow them to get funky colors. Plus, it will work for either a boy or a girl. You could even decorate a nursery with this kind of furniture for an unexpected take on a traditional baby’s room. Plus, it will be gender neutral. Just remember to keep the rest of the room calm enough that your kids can still get to sleep.
Tone it down. You might be afraid that this color of furniture is just too daring. However, it’s worth a try and it’s just a little paint right? You can always layer a glaze on top of it. This will make it look almost like expensive wood. You can also distress it for more of a weathered country look. For a Tuscan design style try hand painting black or gold accents onto the piece. This will help you create your own color palette but also gives you the opportunity to break up all of those red colors. You could even decoupage or apply fabric to most of the drawer fronts of a dresser so the red just acts as a frame.
Remember that these are statement pieces. Depending on the size of your room you might not need to paint an entire matching set. This will save you a lot of work and money but also gives your room an eclectic look. It might just take a pair of hand painted nightstands to give your room a feeling of a world traveler. You want to make the pieces you love the center of attention so they don’t become a distraction.
Use this color of furniture in opulent design styles. You might just want to tone down or redo that basic four poster bed you’ve had forever. Depending on the finish it can go rustic or elegant. Applying an unexpected color to even the plainest pieces turns them into something special. Use it as an opportunity to totally redo your space with just a can of paint.
Red bedroom furniture is welcoming and unique. Remember to tone it down through your wall colors and fabric choices so that you still have a calming space. It’s an easy and inexpensive way to add personality to your bedroom.
