5 Calming Bedrooms Perfect for a Good Night's Sleep

These are made for daydreaming, too!

More often than not, we spend a great deal of time in our bedrooms during weekends. Some of us sleep, others make it a point to clean and declutter, and there are a few who love tweaking the room’s layout from time to time. The bottom line is it needs to be a dreamlike haven where we can enjoy a relaxing slumber and get a well-deserved rest. Be inspired to cozy up your sleeping space with these bedrooms as pegs:

Shades of brown and beige can give a room a cozy feel reminiscent of rest houses. Create a similar feel in your bedroom by injecting touches of white, cream, and tan. Incorporate these colors through pillow covers, sheets, and even through your curtains.

If you're fond of wooden pieces, you can also invest in a wooden side table or score a piece from a thrift store. A vintage piece can be easily updated with coats of varnish or your can leave it as is for a rustic appeal.

Those blessed with a large floor area can set up a reading corner where you can spend lazy afternoons with a good book. Complete your special corner by having a comfy seating piece, a side table for your books and magazines, and a lamp.

Feel like you're on cloud nine each time you step into your room by keeping the theme white, pristine, and crisp. Light blue walls can lend a calming vibe while white sheets can be reminiscent of real, fluffy clouds! Keep your room from becoming too dull by adding a textured pillow or two. You can also use colorful pillow covers!

Can you imagine lounging on this bed all day? We sure can! Maximize the windows in your room by choosing light drapes and a sheer one as backup so that sunlight can stream into the space.

Achieve contrast by pairing white sheets with gray pillow covers and neutral-colored blankets.

Let's admit it, we all want to showcase something unique in our bedrooms! Whether it's a shelf of books, a cabinet of car collectibles, and more—it's a captivating element that even guests would love. If you're low on floor space, you can opt for a customized bed with wheels! This allows you to move it when needed and the piece itself can serve as the focal point in your room.

At the end of a long day, we all want to do one thing—plop down on the bed, hug the fluffiest pillow, and travel to dreamland. If this is also one of the things that you look forward to, make sure your bed is free from clutter. Maximize the side tables by choosing ones with hidden drawers and compartments for your essentials.

Give your bed an upgrade by layering sheets, throws, and pillows.

RL Tip: Get creative with your pillows! Choose ones in different shapes and sizes. However, avoid turning your bed into an eyesore by experimenting with soft furnishings in the same color palette. Neutrals can instantly give your room a hotel-like feel.
