Our lives have become busier and tougher in today’s times. After a full day of hard work, everybody needs to have a good night’s sleep. For this, your bedroom needs to be a tranquil space where you can unwind at the end of the day. It would not only recharge your batteries but rejuvenate you for tackling new challenges.
Here are 5 helpful tips to create a peaceful haven for yourself where you can go at the end of the day to rest!
Get your ducks in a row!
If your bedroom is piled on with the junk and your closets are overflowing, you will never be able to sleep well! The bedroom is a place to clear your thoughts and relax which you can never do with the mess lying around. Hence, the most important thing is to declutter and get your bedroom organized!
Let go of all the useless stuff which disturbs the serenity of this space. Move everything out of your bedroom that doesn’t belong there. Try to avoid having TV, computer or exercise equipment in this room. Maximize the space in your wardrobe by using a double bar hanging system for clothes and a shoe organizer. Make it a habit to re-organize it monthly to avoid clutter from building up.
Soothing Color Scheme
The color scheme of your room would have a deep impact on the quality of your sleep. Choosing neutral and calming hues would create a tranquil space to relax your mind. Stick to lighter colors such as or beige, and pastels, to make your room appear larger and inviting.
Abstain from using too many colors or bold colors. Although you can incorporate few pops of contrasting colors in accessories, bedding, and pillows or by painting one of the walls.
An ideal bedroom is the one having the minimal design strategy with functionality and comfort being the focus. Always have few quality pieces rather than many substandard ones. Your décor should be able to induce a serene vibe into your room.
Other than the bed and the dresser, an ottoman with a built in storage is a very practical piece of furniture for your room. Have a nice comfy chair in a corner for reading or enjoying a cup of coffee! Have a beautiful piece of art or a personal photograph on the wall. Add fresh flowers in a pretty vase or a small natural plant in one corner.
Keep the overall place muted with few eye-catching items here and there. A colorful rug on the floor ties up the whole look while giving you plenty of space to sit. A vibrant rug used as a bed topper makes it look chic. Striking wallpaper on one of the walls further brightens up the room.
If there is one thing in your bedroom that you should splurge on, it’s your bed! You should never compromise on the quality while choosing your bed and mattress. A comfortable and cosy bed will turn your room into a welcoming haven where you would sleep better.
No matter which bed you go for, avoid the one with hard headboard. Instead, opt for soft upholstered one to warm up your room. Mix up different textures and prints for your bedding, blanket, and pillows.
Perfect controlled lighting and nice odour are essential in enhancing the romantic ambience of your bedroom.
It’s nice to have big windows to let fresh air and sunlight pass through, during the daytime. Make sure to have thick curtains to block the sunlight while you are sleeping. For the night, it’s better to have layered lighting. Avoid harsh overhead lights and go for chandeliers and lamps with dimmers. A combination of these would spread even warm light throughout the room. Make your room smell nice by using scented candles, sticks, oils, or by switching on scented plug-ins.
