If your home is your castle, then your bedroom is your private chamber, a place where you can retire after a long hard day, and have some alone time.
It should be a relaxing setting that allows you to leave all your troubles at the door and get some quality sleep each night, so you can be fresh and focused in the morning. Add a mattress used in five star hotels and a memory foam pillow, go bold with colors and get some new decorations - a fun, new bedroom look might be just the kind of change that you need in order to get your sleeping habits back in check and get some much needed rest, so let’s look at some interesting things you can do to improve your bedroom.
Clear out all the gadgets and the clutter
A lot off bedrooms quickly become a home office/bedroom/dressing room hybrid. Books, clothes, shoes, all kinds of gadgets and chargers – they all end up cluttering up your space. Eliminate everything that is not essential for a good night’s sleep from your bedroom, and make some space. Having enough room to move around allows you to get into the habit of doing some stretching before going to bed, and it’s easier to clean up.
Give your bed a quick makeover
The bed is the centerpiece of any bedroom, and even a few small changes done to it can transform the look and the feel of the entire room. You can play around with colors, adding new covers, bed sheets, blankets and fluffy pillows combined in a bold color scheme. A fancy headboard is a simple way to add some class, and a comfortable new memory foam mattress will ensure that you feel like you are sleeping on a cloud. A bed makeover is probably the best investment when it comes to renovating your bedroom.
Throw on some fresh paint
A fresh paint job is a quick and easy home improvement project, and one that has a very high return on investment. You can hire professionals, but it can also be a fun little bonding experience for you and your partner, or even the whole family if you have kids – they love to get messy and feel very proud of themselves for helping out. Go with lighter colors like white and pastel, as they are quite soothing, but you can get creative if you like and choose something more unique, just as long as it is not too distracting. Play with colors - throw some new sheets over your old spring mattress that matches the walls or add a bit of contrast by repainting the night stand.
Move things around and add some decor
Even just rearranging a few pieces of furniture or making a few changes to your bedroom décor can make the room feel more alive. Whether you believe in Feng Shui or not, you can take some good interior decoration cues from it, like avoiding placing a mirror where it is directly facing the bed, using strategically positioned lamps for subdued lighting, adding some warm fiery colors and earth tones, arranging colorful pillows on the bed, using metallic decorations and some scented candles.
With a little spare time on your hands, and some extra money saved up, you can effectively transform your bedroom into a true haven. A few simple changes can go a long way, and these improvements will help you relax and replenish your energy every single night.
