Your bedroom is your private sanctuary, where you spend all of your restful and relaxing hours. It is the place you look forward to for personal time or to laze around after a busy day. You can be yourself here, without worrying about what people can see or think. It is only natural for you to want to make your bedroom as cosy and comfortable as possible.
If you are starting to feel that your bedroom falls short of your expectations and does not present a warm and welcoming atmosphere, try some of these ideas to create that perfect bedroom ambience.
Lighting to set the mood
Lights can set the mood in any room of a home, and because your bedroom is the one place where you spend a lot of time, it can use proper lighting for the ideal atmosphere. You should choose the best lighting design that will help you rest better at night and get you ready for the day ahead. Investing in modern lighting allows you to pick out a style that will not only set the perfect mood but will add beauty to your room.
Colours for comfort
The colour of your room makes a difference. The more suitable shades are pastels and neutrals, such as browns, beige, off-whites, or mid-greys. Lavender, light, blue and green enhances relaxation and lend a peaceful atmosphere to your bedroom. If you like vibrant colours, you can make use of a few decorative pieces in brighter shades for accents. However, avoid overdoing it as it can create a cluttered look which is not what you want to see in your bedroom.
Splurge on your bedding
Your bed must be the most comfortable piece of furniture in your bedroom. Dress it up with soft linens, fluffy pillows, and matching comforter. Cotton sheets are typical, but you can also go for linen sheets that provide some texture to the bed. Flannel sheets work very well for chilly nights. Add a faux fur throw for a warm, soft feeling. You could also make good use of a faux fur rug and spoil your bare feet when you get out of bed.
Decorate to beautify
While it is always best to keep your bedroom decor to a minimum, it can’t hurt to give it that personal touch with some of your valued pieces. You can hang artwork of a serene landscape or scenery to add calm to your bedroom. Another beautiful addition to your bedroom is potted plants. Flowers and foliage do not only further enhance the appearance of your room but keep the air healthy and pure.
Keep it neat
A cluttered room will never give it a feeling of cosiness or calm. It creates confusion and disorder, which in turn keeps you from being relaxed. Make it a point to keep your room free from clutter, have your bed made up, and maintain cleanliness and organisation.
While your guests may not typically visit your bedroom, make it as comfortable as possible for yourself. You deserve it.
