It’s the one place we love to relax in after a hard day’s work. And thanks to the very enjoyable and absolute necessity that’s sleep, it’s most likely the one place we spend the most time in too. All of which means that our bedroom is certainly deserves every extra bit of care and attention. Especially since it will reflect it right back at us, ensuring we’ll get to reap the benefits.
And to get you started, here are 10 items which will transform your room into a haven of tranquility and relaxation and make you fall in love with it even more:
1. A bedside lamp
Lamps can constantly be relied upon to add their very own unique charm to any space they occupy and it’s no different with the bedside variety either. There’s also the practical side to having one close by: that extra cozy ambience they create when they throw a pool of light around you as you lie curled up in bed with your favorite book, or that instant source of illumination when you’re in no mood to head to the light switch or have your room suddenly flooded with light.
In addition to being especially beautiful, plants are also natural air purifiers; certain varieties such as lavender will also add their own subtle fragrance to your room. To enhance the aesthetics of your haven by several notches, all you have to do is add a few miniature varieties – verdant or otherwise – and watch the transformation they bring.
3. A bedside table/cabinet
They present a happy medium between the constant need to leap out of bed to approach the bookshelf, chest of drawers or wardrobe and the risk of having your bed cluttered with that latest book, errant bottle of perfume, and even stationery which might just present a veritable staining hazard. All of which make them pretty indispensable for bumping the comfort and elegance factors of your room up a few notches.
4. Wall mirrors
A tried and tested means of making the rooms they’re placed in look larger, mirrors are an excellent choice for making your room appear especially spacious. The bigger, the better. And that’s what makes wall mirrors such a great choice – especially since they will also enhance illumination in the presence of sufficient light.
They sit pretty close to the top of the coziness scale. Especially since they feel so cushy against your feet. What’s more, they also present the perfect opportunity to add a bold splash of color to your surroundings which will be further enhanced when they’re selected with your décor theme in mind.
Any items capable of surpassing rugs in the coziness stakes certainly deserve a place on our list – just like pillows. Especially since they also present another opportunity to make your surroundings come alive with color and make the notion of relaxing on or beneath the covers to watch your favorite Netflix series especially inviting.
They represent the opportunity to experience those heavenly moments of sublime warmth and comfort snuggled up against your pillows with one wrapped around your shoulders listening to the rain outside. What’s more, they can also be used to transform your bed into a picturesque version worthy of a spread in interior decoration magazine when coupled with matching pillows and bedsheets which complement them perfectly.
Curtains are unparalleled in their ability to make a room especially inviting, and it’s no different when it comes to your bedroom. Floor length options which complement your overall theme are ideal for adding an extra dimension of style not to mention an additional touch of elegance too.
Bare walls have a stark quality to them which will translate to the rest of your room. And that’s where pictures come in: whether photographs or paintings, all it takes is a few tastefully framed favorites of yours to complement your décor beautifully.
10. A mattress
A stylishly decorated bedroom isn’t much use if its single most important item isn’t quite up to providing you with a soothing, rejuvenating night’s sleep. And that means that your mattress is the one item you’ll have to pay attention to the most. The ideal option should be one which has been manufactured using safe, high quality materials and provides the perfect balance of comfort and support for your individual sleeping style.
