The bedroom is the private sanctuary of every home. It is the one place where you have true privacy and comfort without anyone interrupting you while relaxing or taking a nap.
Besides sleeping through the nights, the bedroom is the perfect spot to read a book in peace. It is also the room of choice when you want to watch a TV show under your blanket or you simply want to daydream.
But none of this works as intended if your bedroom fails to provide you with the comfort and security that any well-designed bedroom should. There are quite a lot of things that can ruin that feeling and it is best to avoid them during the designing phase of your bedroom. But there’s still a chance to fix any problems during a later stage of renovation.
So how can you make your bedroom provide you with comfort at any given time? Well, there are a lot of things that you can do, so let’s break them down.
First off, the bedroom is all about the bed. You will spend most of your time in the bedroom on your bed, obviously, so you should make sure that everything about your bed is perfect. The size, the color of the sheets, the mattress and the fragrance of the detergent that you use to wash the sheets and the pillows.
The size of the bed should be determined by your needs but also by the space that is available in your room. Its color, as well as the color of the bed sheets should correspond to the overall theme of your bedroom’s decor. Remember, you don’t want any eyesores in your home, especially not in your bedroom.
The mattress is very important. It won’t matter how elegant and cozy your bedroom looks and feels like if you can’t enjoy your bed due to your mattress. You will not be able to sleep nor rest well and you will start to feel uncomfortable in your very own bedroom.
But, the problem is that you can’t really test the mattress before you spend a couple of nights sleeping on it. You either have to trust the advertisements of the mattress sellers, the testimonies of your friends or a dedicated mattress review site that reviews different types and makes of mattresses with their pros and cons.
Even though the bedroom is all about the bed, it will never feel right unless everything else is in harmony.
Waking up and stepping out of the bed on a cold, hard floor isn’t exactly the best way to start the day. You can solve that by treating your bedroom floor with a nice, comfortable rug that will fit in with the overall theme of your bedroom.
Oh right, a theme. You shouldn’t be ashamed to decorate your bedroom in a specific theme. It is the first thing that any child will consider before putting together their room, but it is something that an adult should be able to do in order to feel comfortable in their home. Of course, we are not talking about super hero-powered theme (or maybe we are) but there’s always something that you feel particularly unified by, even calmed by. We are leaving this to you and your imagination.
The next part that you need to take care in order to enjoy your bedroom is the storage. It doesn’t matter whether you opt for storage under the bed or furniture specifically made to store your clothes, sheets, towels and other accessories. The important thing is to make sure that your bedroom is absolutely free of any form of clutter. This doesn’t only include piles of clothes. There are other things that you should take into account from figuring out the right amount of cushions on your bed to the pattern of the paintings on your walls. Everything makes a difference.
Remember to keep the things that you often use at hands reach. You need light switches next to your bed, or at least lamps on your nightstands but you don’t need that jewelry box that you use once in a week right next to your bed. Prioritizing items based on their usage frequency is a very practical way of reducing clutter.
These are just some of the ways that you can use to improve the quality of your bedroom. Every little piece of decor matters, but remember, the secret to a great night’s sleep lies into the actual bed and the mattress that you sleep on and that should be your priority when building or renovating your bedroom. Enjoy!
