Nothing sets the tone of a room like lighting. When you’re trying to snooze, or you’re chilling out with a magazine or some soothing music, the last thing you want is neon lights flooding the room. In the boudoir, create a romantic, relaxing vibe with soft lighting. Fit a dimmer switch, use up-lighters on the wall or stick to lamps, rather than a central light fitting. You can also add ambiance with candles.
When you get into bed, you want to be comfortable. If you’re tossing and turning or you’re too hot or freezing cold, you may find it hard to drift off. If you’ve not replaced your mattress or pillows for as long as you can remember, check out sites like Mattress-Guides.net or take a trip to the showroom and try some different products for size. Fit a ceiling fan or pop a tower fan in the corner of the room if you tend to get hot during the night and use a thermostat to regulate the temperature during the fall and winter months. Once you’ve got a comfortable mattress, add throws, cushions and new bed linen to make your bed a cozy and inviting focal point.
Have you ever thought about how different colors make you feel? If you haven’t, it’s worth considering how you react to different shades to help you create a more tranquil bedroom. When you’re tired, and you want to switch off, you don’t want to be greeted with colors that make you feel energized. Pastel shades and neutral tones are popular in bedrooms for a good reason. If you love color and you’re desperate to have some pink, red or yellow somewhere, opt for accessories, rather than painting the walls bright shades or choosing a patterned carpet. You can add flashes of color with cushions, blankets, wall art, curtains, vases, and rugs. For accessorizing tips, check out https://www.pinterest.co.uk/explore/room-decorations/?lp=true.
Clutter can stress you out, so avoid it at all costs in the bedroom. If you’re constantly falling over shoes or you’re guilty of chucking your clothes over the back of a chair at the end of the day, invest in some storage boxes or some additional furniture or hang some shelves on the wall. If your bedroom is clean and tidy, this will make it much easier for you to switch off and relax.
If you find it hard to sleep or you can’t relax, your bedroom may be to blame. If you long to unwind in a calming space, you don’t have to embark on a pricey makeover. Try these simple hacks, and hopefully, you’ll be snoozing peacefully in no time.
