4 Easy changes to create a more relaxing bedroom
So if your bedroom is in need of some TLC then make sure to check out these tips to help you make some much-needed changes.
Do away with bright lights and consider adding some low lighting to help you create a relaxing space. Dimmer switches are great for changing the level of lighting and helping you go from awake to sleepy easier.
Adding 120v led strip lights to mirrors, closets and desk space can help you brighten up areas of your room that needs more light and add an extra dimension to your space without being too intrusive when you are trying to sleep and relax.
What color is your bedroom now? Did you know there are certain colors that are more beneficial when it comes to helping you relax and find the right vibe to be able to get to sleep of a night?
Think calming blues, hues of green, lilacs and other pastel colors and avoid garish, loud patterns. Having decor that is vibrant and busy could actually be disturbing your sleep pattern more than you realize. Research has shown that softer colors can help you relax more and create an atmosphere that can help you get a good night’s sleep. After all, that is what a bedroom is primarily for!
If you have a lot of things in your bedroom, you may find that it is creating a lot of tension in the room. Consider adding storage to help you get more organised or even have a good declutter and remove some excess items from your bedroom. Whether you choose to go full Marie Kondo or simply move things to a different room, freeing up space can help you start to turn your room into a relaxing oasis of calm without much effort at all.
Look at under bed storage or adding extra shelving to closets or cupboards to help you store things easier.
Do you feel a little claustrophobic in your bedroom? Is your bed crammed into a corner? Look at ways you can move around furniture and free up your bed. Remove clutter and clear the area you sleep in to help you find breathing space in the bed and not feel boxed in?
Have a play about with the layout of your room and think about where you feel happier waking up. If you are a morning person and live the feel of the sun on your face of a morning, then consider facing your bed towards the window so you can make the most of the sunlight from the moment you open your eyes.
Get creative and use all the space in your room to your advantage. Alcoves, nooks and window seats all can come in handy when it comes to making the most of the space you have.
Before you know it you will be on your way to creating your own little bedroom oasis that you can truly feel comfortable in
