Let's admit it, we're all familiar with stress. From meeting deadlines to accomplishing errands, there are days when we get so tired that we simply want to sleep and get some rest. During these days, the bedroom is our sanctuary. As much as possible, we want it to be clean, cozy, and perfect for relaxation.

Hang string lights above your bed

Warm lighting can help set the mood in your room. Aside from the usual table and floor lamps, you may add a whimsical touch to your space by hanging string lighs. You can use Christmas lights with warm colors to make it work.

RL Tip: If there's no nearby outlet, you may use extension cords! Just remember to consult with an electrician if there are electrical concerns and problems.
