The bedroom is one of the most important rooms in the house. After all, this is the place where you spend your nights, mornings and evenings! Not to mention the lazy weekends when you can allow yourself to relax in bed with a good book and a cup of cocoa. This means that your bedroom should be the cosiest place in your home, and if you don’t feel completely relaxed and comfortable just by going in – then you need to make some changes right away! Here are 9 tips on how to turn your bedroom into a relaxing oasis.
Your bedroom is not the place for things lying around. Even if you have a small apartment and things need to be stored in your bedroom – get organised! Create shelves, use huge boxes, invest in bookshelves and just throw away all the things that don’t belong in the bedroom. You will feel much lighter and your sleep will improve. Most importantly – try to keep a few things under your bed as possible!
Your room should always have fresh air that promotes healthy sleep, good mood and general health, but you can also add a fragrance depending on what you want. There are so many possibilities! From scented candles, which can sometimes feel a bit heavy, to scented lamps and even incense. Essential oils provide a natural aroma that fills your room with the freshness of lemon, the sweetness of ylang-ylang or floral jasmine.
The bedroom is not the place for bold statements and crazy Crayola colours. It is a place where you can relax, and the colours should help you do that. Just as the room can be loud with music, it can be “loud” with colours. Stay away from dark, light and strong colours like black or red. For your room, you want to be as subtle as possible, using muted tones and light palettes.
4.Mix patterns and solids
There are a few rules that you should follow when decorating your room – always make sure you use a mixture of solid colours and patterns. This way you create a balanced look that is not too boring (solid colours only) and not too everywhere (patterns only). It is also a good idea to use an accent colour that is repeated a few times in your design. It will hold the whole look of your room together and give it a cosy feel.
5. Leave your work out
It may be tempting to drag your work home and put a desk in your bedroom to do some things, but please do not do this to yourself. Even if you work at home, the workroom should be separate from the room where you relax and unwind. Otherwise, the two areas will mix and it will be impossible for you to feel calm and peaceful in your own bedroom.
A bedside table can be a place where you can relax best. Usually, we just stuff all the little drawers with napkins and whatnot and stuff the top with magazines, books, chargers and various other random things. It’s time to throw these things away and make it a place that will inspire you. Keep your fragrance lamp there, a few candles, a photo of a place you really liked to visit, or a painting.
Experiment with lighting and invest in some subtle lights that create a completely different atmosphere in your room. In the evening you want to enjoy warm lighting that will help you relax after a day of work
