When we think about our bedroom, we think about our safe space. The bedroom is the only room of the house that takes all our troubles away and carries us safely onto the next day, with renewed vitality and hope. So much so that it deserves our undivided attention when we plan to redecorate our home.
Here are some of the best kept secrets in home interior design that will make your bedroom feel like a space you’ll want to return to day after day:
1. Give It Plenty of Natural Light
The more natural light you bring to your bedroom, the more open and comforting it will feel. Having said this, the more open this room will feel to you, the better you’ll be rested throughout the time you spend there. Not all bedrooms are abundant in natural light and it doesn’t mean you should necessarily tear down walls in order to invite it in.
Actually, the secret is to maximize the light that’s already coming in by moving large furniture away from the window, using light colors all around, using mirrors as artwork, and decluttering the space. The natural light it gets will thus be amplified by the mirrors and light colors and it will feel like there’s an extra window in the bedroom.
2. Invest In an Excellent Bed That Increases Your Comfort
There’s nothing that can change things around for the outlook and the functionality of your bedroom than an amazing queen or king size bed. You should not stop at the bed itself, but you may also want to invest in a mattress that can actually provide excellent sleep. When choosing the right mattress for you, take into consideration your age group and potential back issues that need to be handled with a certain degree of softness or firmness.
This is one investment that will payout in the future in more ways than one – you will be more relaxed, productive and even happier from one day to the next if you are sleeping on a memory foam mattress.
3. Pay Close Attention to the Bedding
After choosing the bed and mattress of your dreams, make sure you use bedding that only compliments them. Choose hypoallergenic and lush fabrics that pamper the skin and let it breathe, while also adding a dash of style to the room. In this respect, silk may be your best option. Choose silk linen and silk pillowcases that go together, in colors of your choosing and watch how your comfort levels immediately start to rise within the first night you spend in your new bed.
If you want the ultimate in comfort and durability, try the new Buffy Breeze Comforter made from eucalyptus. Not only is eucalyptus more breathable than cotton, it’s softer and more durable, so you won’t have to worry about replacing your bedding for a long time. The fabric is amazingly soft and almost shimmers in natural light. You will absolutely love this comforter.
4. Opt for Soft, Pleasant Colors
If you want the bedroom to not only be a space where you can relax, but also a space that provides undisturbed sleep, choose a color palette that’s soft on the eyes. If you opt for cooler colors, you’ll also help your blood pressure go lower and your mind to slow down. Warmer pastel colors are also conducive to sleep and relaxation, just remember to not mix too many of them and keep a minimalistic approach.
To this end, you should avoid at all costs using aggressive colors such as red or purple for your bedroom. I’m a huge fan of neutrals, especially when utilizing natural light. White sheets and bedding can easily be bleached, everything always matches and the light colors brighten up the space beautifully!
5. Decorate With Artworks that Represent You
Although minimalism is recommended for the bedroom, it doesn’t mean you can’t decorate your walls with artwork of your choosing. Redecorating this room of the house comes with the perfect opportunity for you to follow your instincts and let your imagination flow by choosing art you absolutely love, without considering if others will too.
It’s time to support the artists you love and have always followed on social media. Shop sites like Society6 that have thousands of original art designs you can get in prints, posters, and more. You can easily add accents to the wall in a way that it ties the room together, while also making you feel like you’re entering your own private sanctuary.
All in all, the bedroom is a sacred space that should keep us well protected from the rest of the world, while also replenishing our energy levels and preparing us for what the world has to offer the next day. By following the redecorating tips above, you may very well have the bedroom of your dreams – a room that will be both pleasing on the eyes and soothing for the soul with plenty of natural light.
