How to Turn Your Bedroom into a Serene Sanctuary

How to turn your bedroom into a serene sanctuary

Without realising, bedrooms are often turned into a home office, a child’s nursery or a place to put all our bits and bobs, from dirty clothes to un-needed furniture.

But, in today’s fast paced world, you don’t need a busy bedroom. So, we have put together some tips on how to create a tranquil, restful room that ensures you get a good night’s sleep!

Here’s how to turn your bedroom into a serene sanctuary.

Do Some De-Cluttering

It’s very easy to leave piles of clothing around the room, but, unfortunately, a cluttered bedroom isn’t relaxing.

So, the first and easiest step to making your bedroom a sanctuary is to de-clutter.

This not only means tidying, but also throwing away any unnecessary items that are cluttering up your room.

Clear out everything that is a distraction, or isn’t needed. Creating a clean, contemporary and minimalist room will help your mind and body relax.

Fix the Lighting

The lighting in your room really makes a difference to the atmosphere and your mood!

Avoid cool lights such as white lights, as this type of light makes you feel more alert and energetic.

Warm yellow lights and lamps that are dimmable are the perfect lighting for bedrooms, as the glowing warmth sets the perfect atmosphere to help you relax and unwind.

Add a Rug

Try buying a soft, fluffy rug for your bedroom.

A rug not only gives some style and dimension to the room, but also makes the room feel warm and cosy, especially in the winter!

Have Neutral, Tranquil Wall Colours

Some psychologists have found that the colour of the walls in your bedroom can affect the way you feel and the amount of sleep you get.

A study showed that people with a dark coloured bedroom got less sleep at night.

Therefore, painting your walls neutral, calm, colours such as white, light grey, yellow, soft blue, or green can encourage slumber.

Add a Touch of Opulence

Why not add a touch of opulence to your bedroom with a statement piece, such as a painting, or a luxurious headboard? Alternatively, drape layers of soft coloured, textured fabrics such as silk, satin or velvet.

Thick knitted throws also make the bed look inviting and cosy, and cashmere blankets add a touch of luxury!

An elegant, luxurious element will give your room an instant feel of comfort and relaxation.

Light Some Candles

Candles are a perfect way to unwind, relieve stress and make a bedroom feel inviting.

Opt for candles that are therapeutic – such as lavender, chamomile, vanilla scented candles.

If you’re worried about safety, get a scented diffuser instead!

Invest in Blackout Curtains

Adding textured fabrics to your bedroom will help make the room look cosy.

Soft coloured curtains not only make the room tranquil and comfortable, but they also help block out any light coming into the room.

Find the Right Mattress

We spend a lot of time sleeping and relaxing on our beds, so it is very important to invest in a good, comfortable mattress.

The key to getting a good night’s sleep is a mattress that won’t cause you to overheat, or give you any aches and pains when you wake up! So, ensure you get a temperature regulating mattress.

Also, find the right firmness for you to keep the backaches away.

Use Plenty of Pillows/Cushions

Hygge up your bed by adding lots of cushions and pillows! This will make it even more warm and inviting. You want to make your bedroom as comfortable as possible.

Add plenty of plush, fluffy cushions to turn your bedroom into a snug haven! Opt for soft fabrics and light-coloured cushion covers.

Find the Perfect Bedding

Good bedding can change the way you sleep and make your bedroom feel like a serene sanctuary! So, invest in some soft, luxurious sheets.

We spend a third of our lives in bed, so it’s important to find the right weight duvet and the perfect soft sheets. Rough and heavy sheets will make your body overheat and therefore keep you awake constantly at night.
