Choosing to stay at home during weekends has a lot more benefits than you can imagine. Aside from saving on costs and being able to spend some time decluttering your space, you get to have the perfect opportunity to work on a couple of DIY improvement projects that can help transform the different areas at home.

Since many of us love spending hours in the bedroom, you may want to turn it into a calm sanctuary where you can feel refreshed and rejuvenated. To give you a clear picture of how to make it happen, here are five Zen spaces that you can save as reference. Whether it’s a bright and clean bedroom or a warm and inviting nook with mood lighting—what’s important is you’ll love to stay in it for hours, without ever wanting to leave:

Found in an Antipolo rest house, this master bedroom is made more charming, thanks to the patterned wallpaper. The soft furnishings highlight a mix of light and dark tones—making the room seem more inviting and regal.

If you love this look, you may want to invest in the right wallpaper and paint combo. You can also experiment with a mural of a tranquil landscape or wall decals depicting nature.

RL Tip: To help set the mood in your room, you may want to have dark-colored pieces or a set of blackout curtains to keep the sun out.

Perhaps one of the easiest ways to inject a calming vibe into your bedroom is through plants. Aside from a vase of fresh blooms, you can make it even more functional by choosing greens that can purify the air at home or a selection of plants that can help you sleep better.

You can still achieve a serene and comfy bedroom even in a compact unit. To accomplish this, dress up your sofa bed with neutral throws, white pillow covers, and a gray accent wall. In this condo unit designed by interior designer Kristine Neri-Magturo, the combination of gray and white shades make the area perfect for sleeping.

A clean and bright bedroom can help you meditate and forget all your worries. Aside from white, you can also inject pops of green and blue as these hues are known to help clear the mind and make you feel relaxed. If the bedroom has a window, make sure you maximize it by allowing sunlight to stream into the space.
