Many find Gothic or medieval bedroom decorating ideas to be too dark or to be more fitting for a castle than for the modern home. The furniture needed to form the foundation for this style of decor is large, heavy and is for the most part, an acquired taste although some people can’t imagine decorating their homes any other way, especially their bedrooms!
Many find Gothic or medieval bedroom decorating ideas to be too dark or to be of too large a scale for the modern home. The furniture needed to form the foundation for this style of decor is large, heavy and is for the most part, an acquired taste although some people can’t imagine decorating their homes any other way, especially their bedrooms!
FABRIC Light and airy fabrics alone would be out of place in a space filled with the massive furniture that was mentioned earlier in our medieval bedroom decorating ideas. Remember that castles were not warm and cozy places so heavily embroidered velvets, furs and wall tapestries were necessary to soften stone walls. Before moving on to gauzy diaphanous materials, cover the basics with substantial fabrics.
MEDIEVAL BEDDING SETS
Medieval bedding probably consisted of animal skins, furs and rough woven blankets. There are many excellent crushed velvet bedding sets in solid colors that can be used to create most any color scheme you have in mind. One of the best medieval bedroom decorating ideas that I can share is to use faux fur throws rather than the real thing.
Fake fur is just as soft and cheap compared to real fur. Plus, no animals are harmed in the process of making a faux fur medieval bedding set unlike the authentic article.
MEDIEVAL BEDROOM CURTAINS Window treatments are another area where heavy fabrics rule the roost. Sturdy drapery hardware will be necessary to hold many pounds of curtain panels. Lucky for you that wrought iron will be right at home in gothic or medieval bedroom decor.
THE BOTTOM LINE One trip to a medieval castle should be enough to tell you whether or not a medieval bedroom design is right for you. But if traveling for the sake of determining the best color scheme and decorating style is out of the question, I will be happy to make some recommendations for reputable online stores that specialize in providing furnishings and decorations for those who can’t seem to get enough of stuff that was in vogue back in the day of King Arthur and his mythical Knights of the Round Table.
Here is a website where you may find pictures of medieval bedroom designs and additional medieval bedroom decorating ideas to help you get started on your DIY castle or dungeon decor.
