Studies have shown that bedroom colour can influence our moods, our thoughts, and ultimately how much sleep we get. So it’s important to choose colours that promote feelings of tranquillity and comfort. When choosing a colour for your bedroom, notice how the colour makes you feel. Natural colours tend to be the best for bedrooms such as blues, greens, browns, and greys.
Another often overlooked aspect of the bedroom is lighting. It is a key ingredient in creating the ambience of the room. In addition to overhead lighting, light the room with accent lights, pendant lights or wall sconces. Artwork Art is a great way to personalize and add to the tone of your bedroom. Choose pieces that truly speak to your heart and notice how much more cosy and inviting the room feels.
Not only do plants add vitality and air purifying effects to our home, they can also have a calming and purifying effect which can promote healthier sleeping patterns. Some plants with relaxing and cleansing effects are jasmine, lavender, and aloe vera.
A rug is an important element in any room, particularly in the bedroom. In addition to colour, rugs set the tone for the room, so be sure to choose something low-key and peaceful. Rugs add texture as well. Therefore, go for thicker and more luxurious rugs so your feet are happy when they first hit the ground.
Aside from being comfortable and suitable for your sleep style, pillows can be the ultimate cosy addition to your bedroom. Try using a mix of patterns and textures. For mixed patterns, start with the main colour and pick one busier pattern and one or two low-key patterns. Having a variety of pillows – fluffy, textured, and of different sizes can really add warmth to the room.
While some folks are happy to sleep in rooms with no window treatments, curtains are an amazing way to really create a cosy and dreamy feel in the bedroom. For example, you can use light fabric curtains to separate the bed from the rest of the room, creating a more private and romantic feel. For those who are light sensitive or day sleepers, choose a type of blackout curtain to keep the room dark.
There are many elements that go into transforming your bedroom to a sleeping cave. The most important factor to keep in mind is to choose colours, patterns, lighting, and textures that are soothing and pleasing to you.
With these 7 essentials, you will be well on your way to form an inviting and cosy bedroom where you’ll want to hang out and relax all the time.
