The ideal bedroom is calm, comfortable and relaxing. All of us want our bedrooms to be the most tranquil and coziest place in our home, where we can take the ultimate retreat after a hectic day. However, the bedroom is often the last place to receive interior decorating attention.
No matter how small or a big bedroom you have, here are some ideas to mold it into a relaxing and rejuvenating oasis.
- Choose Muted Colours for the Walls
Select soothing colours like ivory, beige, powder blue, mauve, white and earthy tones like brown, gray, copper, tan look beautiful on bedroom walls. These colours promote calmness and set the right mood for taking a rest. Opt for non-toxic VOC-free paints for your bedroom walls as they don’t have any adverse effects on your health.
- Choose Your Bed Carefully
The bed is the focal point of a bedroom. Invest in luxury, style and ultimate comfort. There are different styles of modern beds to choose from. However, when purchasing a bed, it’s necessary to consider the area of your bedroom so that you don’t end up buying an over-sized bed. This will leave little or no room for other furniture.
It’s also important to invest in a high-quality mattress with sufficient support, mattress pad and pillows. These are some of the essential purchases in your home that are directly connected with your health and well-being. So, spend as much you can afford without compromising on their quality.
- Select the Right Bedroom Furniture
The right furniture sets the style and aesthetic appeal of your bedroom. Functional and matching bedroom furniture units like bedside tables, cupboards, chairs, seats give the room a complete and coherent look. When buying bedroom furniture, first make sure to list the items you need for your space to avoid unnecessary clutter. Select the colour and make of the units that complement your bed set.
- Mix and Match Wall Decor and Accessories
To add more to the style and aesthetics of your bedroom, hang proper wall decors and other room accessories. You can hang beautiful pictures in frames, paintings, or wall art that matches the other elements of your room. Utilize traditionally framed or contemporary mirrors and elegant lighting to spruce up your space further.
- Utilize Natural Fragrances
Place fresh flowers in a vase or burn aromatic candles to keep your bedroom smelling good naturally. You can also put a few drops of any soothing aromatherapy oil in a ceramic oil burner. Make a natural room spray by mixing peppermint, lavender or eucalyptus essential oils in water. Spraying your bedroom with this scented mix will not only leave it fragrant but will also keep insects and bugs away.
- Put up Proper Window Treatments
Whether you hang curtains and drapes or shutters and shades, proper window treatments play a crucial role in creating a relaxing ambience. Consider sheer curtains in light colours for your bedroom windows to let the natural daylight in. These curtains will also provide protection from harsh streetlights and car lights at night while filtering soothing moonlight into your bedroom.
