Your bedroom is one of the essential rooms in your home. It is the only place that is indeed yours, and as the last place, you see at night and the first place you see when you wake up to each day – not to mention where you sleep; your bedroom should be somewhere where you feel relaxed and somewhere you can retreat to. There are a few little things you can do to make sure that your bedroom is your happy place:
It’s All About The Lighting
Lighting is an essential part of creating ambience in a room. Avoid bright or fluorescent overhead lights, and choose floor and table lamps with dimmers instead.
Make Your Room Smell Amazing
Some scents are said to have an impact on your brain’s emotional centre and can provide sedative effects. Keep your favourite relaxing scent in the house, whether it’s a plugin or some candles you can light for when you’re just having one of those days.
Indulge In A Soft Carpet
You can’t beat the feeling of bare feet on an ultra soft carpet or even a rug. Imagine, your candles are lit, your pyjamas are on, and you walk across the room with bare feet feeling the soft fluffy carpet in your toes. A beautiful carpet or fluffy rug adds warmth and comfort and to a room.
Choose Your Bed Carefully
A headboard can make your bed feel extra special. They also come in a wide range of prices and styles. Your mattress also needs to be comfy, your bed big enough for stretching out in and also you want something that’s going to last a long time.
Neutral Colours Are Calming
Many people opt for bold and patterned styles to decorate their bedrooms; it is wiser to stick to more neutral and calming colours for your sleep space. Add small pops of colour if you want to, but do this with the odd pillow or throw can be soft and unique, but also changed easily, should you get bored and fancy a change.
Think About Feng Shui
There are Feng Shui tips specifically for the bedroom which you can find online. Traditional Feng Shui, says that your bed should face the door of the room, so you have a view of the entrance, as it will subconsciously make you feel safer and more in control as you sleep.
Keep It Tidy
Having an organised bedroom is key to feeling at peace because clutter is a reminder of things undone. If you don’t have much room then consider getting a new bed, ottoman beds create extra storage in bedrooms without having to take up any extra space. Your bedroom should be a calm place and never somewhere of stress, so while redecorating and reorganising can take some time, it doesn’t have to be overly costly, and it shouldn’t be a stressful job either. Have some fun with it because it can make a huge difference in your quality of life.
