Animal prints can add bold color and excitement to your bedroom. Leopard, zebra, tiger and cheetah prints can be used to decorate your rooms in a creative way. You can use animal prints in a room with any kind of color scheme. And any kind of material – fur, suede, cord – can be used to make a bold impression. However, to get the best out of animal prints, you need to use them with caution. Here are a few tips and ideas for decorating your bedroom with animal prints.
Don’t Overuse Animal Prints
Animal prints can be very bold. Hence, you should use just one kind of animal print on a single item in your bedroom. It is very easy to get excited about animal prints and overuse them. So you need to be a bit conservative. For instance, if you decide to use animal printed wall paper, restrict it to just one wall in your room. The other plain colored walls will help the animal printed wall to stand out and this will keep your room from looking like an animal gift shop.
Choose the Best Type of Fabrics
Animal prints are available on different kinds of materials. But you should strive to use the best fabrics in your bedroom. Put a touch of class and glamour into your resting space. You can choose fabrics like faux fur for your throw pillow or bedspread.
Create a Bold Statement with Your Bedspread
One of the most conspicuous places to use animal prints is on your bedspread or headboard. You can then complement this with solid colored throw pillows. But if you are using a zebra print, you may complement the bold black and white colors with bright colored throw pillows.
Use Animal Prints to Cover a Chair
You can decorate your bedroom with an upholstered chair that has a bold animal print. But other furniture around should have solid colors. This will make the animal print stand out and look more attractive.
Place Animal Printed Rugs on the Floor
Put a rug with a print of a leopard, tiger or zebra on the bedroom floor. This is one of the easiest ways to add animal prints to your room. And it has a powerful way of drawing the eyes downward. You should however note that if you use an animal printed rug, you would have to make very minimal use of animal prints in other parts of the room.
