Your bedroom needs to be a sacred space in your home. This is where you sleep and recharge for the next day. If you don’t make it cozy, you will have a lower quality sleep. The truth is that coziness doesn’t need to break the bank. Here are some ideas you can explore in enhancing the coziness of your bedroom and provide you with restful sleep daily.
It’s time to get a couple of modern nightstand lamps. This will help you read at night, and the calm, soothing light from a bedroom or reading lamp will allow you to seamlessly transition to sleep after a brief reading session. Put this beside your bed so that with just one click, you can ease your way to a great sleep in time for tomorrow’s challenges.
Use low-watt bulbs, and it would be great if the lampshade that you get allows you to control the intensity of the light depending on your need for the moment.
Another easy way to boost the coziness factor of your bedroom and to boost sleep is to choose the warm neutrals colors which are the greys, beiges, earthly blue and browns. They are calming to the eyes, and they avoid stimulating your senses.
Instead of using plastic or metal furniture or fixtures in your room, go for the natural materials instead. These include wood, stone, wool, linen, and rattan. These create a physical and earthly ambiance which is relaxing.
Use black curtains
The idea is that it will block out light from the outside. Light is a stimulant, and it will be hard to sleep if there are pockets of light that enter your bedroom. Oh, and make sure to switch off your phone so that it doesn’t suddenly light up at night to destroy your sleep momentum.
Get some artwork displays
Go down to your neighborhood art space and choose pieces that have serene auras, such as those that use blue, gray or green tones. These relaxing art pieces can make your room very cozy and inspire creativity at the same time. Avoid artwork that has high energy such as orange, red, or thick yellow pieces as they will stimulate your senses and make it difficult to sleep at night.
Add some greens
Some plants can be great for a bedroom and can add a bit of life and comfort. You can choose plants like cacti, air plants, and succulents as they are easy to take care of and is a beautiful decor to have. Plus, they give off oxygen. This means better rest for you.
Purchase an oversized and luxurious chair to turn it into your reading space at one of the corners of your bedroom. This is perfect for rainy days, and there is no work. You can just snuggle with your favorite book and some hot chocolate on the side!
A small bookshelf near your reading nook will make your bedroom even cozier. Avoid magazines, however, as they make your room cluttered.
