5 Ways To Turn Your Bedroom Into A Special Retreat
Turn your private space into a happy place with these ideas
At the end of a long, hard day at work, nothing beats coming home and lying down on a comfortable bed with crisp sheets while taking in the sweet aroma of lavender from your favorite scented candle. To help you achieve the same level of relaxation every night, here are some bedroom improvement ideas you can try:
1. Make it extra cozy.
Nothing is more comforting than coming home to a space with a calming ambiance. Make sure that your sleeping space is fit for rest by adding features that help you relax—be it hanging a hammock, displaying your art, or investing in a custom-made bed.
2. Give it a grown-up design upgrade.
As much as we love our childhood bedrooms, there comes a time in our lives when our living space has to mature, too—after all, your new room needs to match your lifestyle. Simply add a few cozy throws, intricately designed area rugs, and mood lighting to give it a classy feel.
3. Make your bed warm and comfy.
Are you sure that your sleeping space is fit for rest? Don't settle for a mediocre bed—wake up relaxed and refreshed every morning by rotating your pillows, replacing your sheets weekly, and inspecting your mattress regularly.
4. Give it a fancy touch.
In a perfect world, we would all be coming home to a room that has the whole shebang. No need to worry, even if you can't spend an entire paycheck on accessories, you can still style your way to a sophisticated space with DIY canopy, monogrammed sheets, and store-bought silk drapes.
5. Keep it a happy and healthy environment.
There's nothing worse than waking up in the morning with sore muscles, a stuffy nose, or a burning rash. For example, if you share space with furry friends, their soft hair is notorious for being a source of allergens like dander, mold spores, and dust—to avoid this, try getting them a separate bed where they can sleep comfortably.
