Dark bedroom ideas are the perfect way to create a space for rest, allowing homeowners to introduce shades that encourage a sense of warmth and safety –something very welcome in the room that we often go to switch off and reset. 

While the approach you take towards your bedroom design needs to take into account the size of the space you are working with and how you plan on using the room on a daily basis, it should also be based on the ambience you are after –relaxing, serene, energising and so on.
