7 Ways to Make Your Bedroom Extra Cozy


7 Ways to Make Your Bedroom Extra Cozy

 

Your bedroom is a place where you spend most of your resting hours so it’s worth the extra time to make it as cozy as possible. We all love a stress-free zone, and any excuse to stay in bed all day is just always tempting. Here are some tips for that perfect bedroom:

 

Use of colors

Warm neutrals like light to mid-tone greys, browns, and beiges provide a relaxing background. They’re also great hues as you can easily warm up or cool down the accessories depending on the season. If you can’t commit to a permanent neutral colored paint, you can incorporate these colors through use of wood, rattan, or even stones. If possible, avoid large elements made with reflective materials like metals and plastics as it will make the room seem manufactured.

 

 

Use comfy rugs

The first step you take after a good night sleep matters. Put a high-pile wool area rug next to your bed so can treat your feet to its plush softness first thing in the morning. It doesn’t only feel nice but you can also be creative with color and design to add more oomph factor to your room. An antique Persian rug or a modern minimalist piece can make it any space look more expensive.

 


Add some plants

Bring outside in by incorporating flowers or plants into your décor. Plants like cacti, succulents, and air plants are perfect for a bedroom. They add a burst of color and you can choose the pots to go with the overall look of the room. If you want something more feminine, you can try putting an orchid. The delicate vibe of these flowers will surely add a sense of calmness into your room.

 

 

Have a reading nook

If you have enough space in your bedroom, make yourself a reading spot. It can be achieved with a small table and a luxurious chaise or a chic and cozy oversized chair. You can also check the space near the window if it’s possible to extend a small resting area. Here you can take a good book, grab a coffee, and just forget about the stress of the outside world.

 

 

Choose a calming art

For bedrooms, it’s best not to use high-energy colors like reds, deep yellows, and oranges. Opt for more calming colors like green and blue. It helps give your room a serene vibe. Just like what Dr. Richard D. Hammer, M.D, said: “The right kind of artwork can have a very calming effect on the psyche and a healing effect on the physical body, slowing down the aging process.”

 

Use the Right Curtains

This is especially important for light sleepers. Get a set that blocks the light (and the sound if possible). Curtains also draw attention to the ceiling so make sure to choose a design that’ll help make the room look more spacious. Avoid large flowered prints or anything with bold patterns that will dominate the room as it will create a feeling of less space.

 


Go low with lights

Low lights are perfect for lounging and snuggling. Use a dimmer on the main source of lighting as it gives you flexibility especially when the full light is too bright in the morning. If dimmers are not an option, you can use a three-way bulb. The different wattages will allow you to create the mood you want.
