Have you ever walked into a friend’s home and been amazed at how comfortable and welcoming it feels? Making our home feel like this can seem tricky, but it’s easier than you think. And, it’s not always down to how much you spend!
Our homes reflect the people that live in it. Every home has a unique feel, depending on furniture, style and decoration. All of this combines to create the atmosphere that people pick up on when they enter your home.
There’s one room in particular that means more than most to those that live in your home – the bedroom! This is the place you get to relax and get that good night’s sleep. So how it feels and looks is important!
Check out these simple tips for making your bedroom amazing:
A neat and tidy bedroom is important in more ways than one. Keeping your bedroom tidy means making sure everything is in it’s place each and every-time you leave the room. This means that you’ll always be able to find your things and when you return to it at the end of a busy day it’s ready for you to unwind and relax in straight away.
This helps our brain feel relaxed and ready for a good night’s sleep. In fact scientists have suggested that a messy bedroom can lead to feeling sad and stressed, so get that room organized!
It’s a good idea to paint a bedroom light, pastel shades as this gives a feeling of space and comfort. Make sure to avoid painting your walls with black, red or any other strong or dark color, since these colors can feel too energetic to sleep which can result in insomnia.
Bed frames are the most striking things in a bedroom as you enter. Make sure that you have a bed frame that suits your style!
Whether large or small, the trend these days is to flaunt open space in the bedroom. Keep things off the floor and use wall-mounted options wherever possible for things such as racks, etc.
Offset the light and pastel colors with bright rugs to enhance the appeal of the room – make sure they feel soft and welcoming on your feet!
Changing rugs regularly is also a great way to upgrade your bedroom without spending much.
Much like rugs, pillows are another cheap and cheerful way to switch up the look of your bedroom. Use luxurious pillows for sleeping and scatter some across the bed for a hotel feel.
