If you’ve got a busy life, whether you have a demanding job, the family home wears you out, or a mixture of everything; the days turn into weeks, which turn into months before you know it. The best way to keep your stamina up, and power through the year like a champ, is to get some much-needed rest and relaxation whenever you can. Finding time to switch off completely so that you can recharge and be ready for the next day, can be a challenge. However, ensuring that your bedroom space is a restful haven, and somewhere that you look forward to spending time in each evening and night, is going to help your quest for more shut-eye.
Bedrooms are often last on the list when it comes to interior design and decorating in your household; they can become places to store things, and before you know it, you’ve created a box room with a bed in it. However, putting some time and effort into clearing out your bedroom environment, and making it a sanctuary for your tired body and mind, will contribute to better-quality rest and sleep, which will lead to great health and inner wellbeing. The following are some ideas and inspiration for those who want a dreamy bedroom space in their home, perfect for chilling out and recharging for their busy days (weeks, months, and years) ahead.
A Collated Space
Obviously, you’ll want your bedroom to be comfortable and cosy; however, you’ll need to ensure that you feel calm as soon as you enter the space, and for the duration of time you spend in there. Therefore, it’s vital that you carefully consider your colour palette, and surround yourself with the paint or wallpaper equivalent of fresh, crisp cotton or linen sheets. You can warm-up the environment at a later stage with texture and light, but, for now; you need to focus on clearing out the room and creating a relaxing blank canvas.
Once you’ve sorted out the new coat of paint, and you have an empty space to play with; you can figure out the best way to arrange the furniture. You can upcycle your wardrobe and bedside tables by painting them in a similar hue to the rest of your bedroom. Find characterful additions from online auction sites and apps; you’ll be eagerly awaiting the furniture delivery team, and you’ll have something truly unique to be proud of.
A Cosy Escape
When you’re happy with the colours in the room, and you feel like your layout works well with all your bedroom furniture; it’s time to start bring in the softer elements that will ensure you can snuggle-down successfully. The soft furnishing in your bedroom will also allow you to add more prints and vibrancy with pops of colour, which can be updated and changed as trends move forward and your tastes evolve.
You’ll want enough light to wake up in the morning and get dressed in your mirror, and you’ll need a warm and cosy room during the evening. Therefore, lamps are a great way to change the amount of light in the room, and an easy way to add to the relaxing ambience of the space.
