The bedroom more than just a place to sleep; it’s our most private room in the house. It’s also where we retreat from a busy, noisy world to rewind and recharge. Creating a space that is inviting and comforting is important. Here’s how you can transform your master bedroom into a private retreat.
It may feel like we’re always telling you to declutter but the truth is, it’s nearly impossible to truly relax in a messy space. Remove everything that doesn’t belong in your room: kids’ toys, items from other areas of the house, extra books, etc., and put away clothing in the closet or hamper. Get into the habit of making your bed every day – it makes a difference!
Choose a calming color palette
Color has a big impact on our moods. There’s a reason why you feel energized when you see yellow or feel at ease when you’re in a blue room. Choose the right color that promotes a calming and relaxing atmosphere. Choose a color that evokes that feeling for you but if you’re not sure where to start, neutrals and softer shades of blues are a good place to start.
Pick luxurious bedding
What makes hotel beds feel so luxurious? The magic is in the bedding! Choose bedding that’s made from high-quality natural fabric like linen or cotton percale. These fabrics tend to be soft and breathable, making you feel more comfortable while sleeping.
Use soft lighting
Set the mood for a peaceful evening by using soft lighting. Most bedrooms have overhead light but consider supplementing them with additional sources of light with floor and bedside lamps.
Keep decorations to a minimum
Resist the urge to fill every wall and surface with something. Keep your accessories to a minimum to give your eyes (and brain) a break. Choose your most treasured items to keep on display.
You deserve a bedroom that’s a personal oasis where you can feel refreshed after a long day. With these helpful tips, you can create the perfect bedroom retreat you’ll love spending time in.
