A bedroom is not just a room. It’s where you open your eyes when you wake up. It’s where you both start and end your day. It’s where you sleep. It can be where you relax and watch a movie. A bedroom is, in other words, a big part of your day every day, so why not spend some time making it better?
Start the day right
It’s already a habit for most people, but if you haven’t been making your bed all these years, it’s time to give it a try.
It doesn’t take long, but once you started the day by doing this little thing for yourself, then you have already accomplished something before leaving your bedroom.
Light, lights and more lights
If you invest in some candles, then it will add some new lighting to your room. It creates a special atmosphere and sets the mood, but make sure that you don’t fall asleep with them on.
The right bedding
When you lay down after a long day on your pillow, it helps if it’s soft and welcoming. A good pillow with goose down like ones available at Hamvay-Lang will make you feel better the minute you get into bed.
While good lighting helps you wake up in the morning, it also ruins your sleep if it gets very bright too early. Especially during the summer months where the sun can go up at the crack of dawn.
A way to work around this is by getting thicker curtains. If that’s not enough, there are some specific curtains made solely for blocking daylight that are called blackout curtains.
A personal touch
The bedroom is a personal space if you think about it. Besides you, your partner and your friends, no one else sees it, but for some reason, a lot of people keep it utterly simple and minimalistic.
A personal touch to the bedroom can help you feel even more at home when you wake up. It can be done by placing a picture that means something to you, or maybe a piece of furniture that was passed on or given to you.
Make a statement
A bedroom can change dramatically with bold wallpaper, a colour, or a piece of artwork. If you have something on your mind that you would love to remind yourself of every day, then get a wallpaper with a saying or a picture you like.
If that’s not your thing, but you still prefer something on your walls, then find a painting that brings out a good feeling in you every time you look at it.
Change the colour
If you have the time to go full in on a makeover, then maybe it’s time to change the colour in your bedroom.
Go to the painter and bring home some samples and start playing around with it. Maybe you’ll find a new colour that you didn’t even know excited about and fall in love with it for your bedroom.
But make sure you think about it before you start painting. If you prefer to keep the bedroom in a one colour theme, it would mean that you might need to change the furniture and decorations as well.
