We spend an average of 8 hours per night in the bedroom, but is your room a space which you feel totally relaxed after a long day?
Your bedroom should be a personalised sanctuary where you can take time out of your daily routine and enjoy some quality ‘me’ time. These helpful hints will ensure that you bring that element of relaxation back where it’s needed most.
CLUTTER BE GONE!
Are you hoarding stuffed toys from your childhood or dozens of magazines that you are never going to read again? Bedrooms often become one of the most cluttered rooms in the house with most items acting as dust collectors. If you haven’t used some items within a 3 month period it’s time to take a breath, grab some boxes and de-clutter your room. Once you are left with all the essentials, invest in some stylish storage solutions to ensure that you keep everything organised.
SET THE MOOD
Introducing softer lighting will give your eyes a break from those harsh bright lights and help you to wind down. Investing in pendant lighting or side lamps with soft lighting will not only add an element of beauty to your room but will create a peaceful and calm environment to retreat to. Candles are also a wonderful lighting option which adds instant ambience and warmth to any room. You can further add to the ambience of your bedroom with calming aromas and seasonal flowers.
BEAUTIFY YOUR BEDDING
At the end of the day, there is nothing more indulgent as falling into a big, comfortable bed. To create a high-end hotel feeling, invest in luxurious soft bedding. Bedrooms are the best room in the house to go crazy with cushions, scatter them on your bed, on the floor or on your reading chair. Just be careful not to go too over the top, everything in moderation!
Investing in different coloured cushions, textures and sizes are an inexpensive way to achieve warmth and depth throughout your bedroom décor. This also allows you to change your décor, keeping up with colour trends and seasons.
