If there is too much stuff in a room it can be hard to reach a place of relaxation. If you are always worried about the stuff everywhere, you can’t fully enjoy your bedroom. Clear out the clutter, and create a blank canvas that you can work with to create a tranquil bedroom space. This includes any broken items, items that belong in different rooms, and items that you don’t really love. Clear out the clutter, and get ready to enjoy your bedroom more!
Remove Digital Devices
To fully relax, most people need to be fully unplugged. TVs, computers, and even mobile devices have been shown to keep the brain stimulated and awake. If you are wanting to create a zone that is restful, eliminating digital devices is a great start. Reading an old-fashioned book before bed is a great way to unwind and drift away into sleep.
Use a Calm Color Palette
Paint can make a huge difference in any room, and the bedroom is no exception. If your bedroom is painted a loud, bright color you may want to tone it down a bit with a calmer color. Neutrals, like a warm white or a soft gray, are a great bet when painting your bedroom walls. Stark white is usually a little too harsh in the bedroom. Going a bit darker will also create a cozy feel, and envelop the room. Darker colors will usually make a room seem smaller, and lighter colors will make it seem more expansive. Choose a color palette you love and one that you will enjoy waking up to every morning.
If the only light in the bedroom is one ceiling bulb, you are not achieving the best atmosphere. To really make your bedroom cozy and inviting, various light sources should be used, and especially lamps. Lamps create a warm glow that encourages unwinding, unlike a brighter, harsher light on the ceiling. Lamps near the bed also make it more convenient to turn off the lights when you are ready to sleep, and you won’t have to get up and interrupt whatever sense of calm you have achieved. The perfect lamps need the perfect side tables, and Horizon Home furniture has a great selection of nightstands that can make your bedside even better.
Incorporate Natural Items
Plants are a great way to bring natural beauty into your bedroom, and they have the added bonus of purifying the air! Plants bring the outdoors inside, and can create a serene and inviting space. Other natural items, such as rich woods, shells from a great trip, or even photographs of amazing natural wonders, can all contribute to making your bedroom a sanctuary. Many people find images of the sea or the clouds especially calming.
A Comfortable Bed
The focal point of your bedroom should be the bed, and you want to have the most comfortable bed you can find. Horizon Home Furniture has an amazing selection of beds to choose from, and you are sure to find one that gives you a feeling of tranquility. If you have a smaller bed, consider upgrading to a queen or a king size, and you will find that the added space makes for a more luxurious sleeping environment. After you have chosen a great bed you want to find the softest bedding you can, and an assortment of textures and soft colors always makes a bed more inviting. Finally, don’t neglect the place you lay your head—your pillow. The perfect pillow can really make a difference in your sleep quality, and will make your bedroom seem even more inviting.
Keeping your bedroom dark can really help it feel more like a sanctuary, especially if it gets bright first thing in the morning. If you can sleep in a bit, take advantage of room darkening shades to help keep the light out and encourage more restful sleep.
Surround yourself with items you love, and especially focus on any spaces that are visible while lying in bed. Candles can create a tranquil mood in the room, and help you unwind after a long day. Essential oils can bring natural scents into the room, and certain oils, like lavender, can help to bring relaxation and have a calming effect. If you have wood floors, consider layering soft rugs beneath your bed so you can step onto a soft surface every morning. Every detail you add can help turn your bedroom into a sanctuary.
