Does Your Bedroom Have What It Takes to Be Your Safe Haven?

An American designer primarily known for residential interior design work for many celebrities said once that “real comfort, visual and physical, is vital to every room.” I absolutely agree, but I must emphasize that comfort is most important in the room where you sleep.

So, how does your bedroom look now? Is it cosy enough? Is it soothing? Does it have what it takes to be your safe haven?

If the answer is ‘no,’ then you need to do something about it. We are here to guide you through the process.

A Soothing Backdrop

What’s the colour of your bedroom walls? Is it bright yellow, orange, red? These colours stimulate activity and increase the heart rate, according to colour psychology. And that’s definitely not something you would want in the bedroom.

Instead, you should opt for more soothing options, such as greens, blues, lavenders, and other cool tones.

Neutral tones, such as white, grey, and beige, are also good options. They are calming and provide a decent background for other design interventions.

Get Comfy

The most vital element of your bedroom is, of course, the bed. And while the bed frame may be a matter of design, the mattress needs to be supportive and of top quality. When picking a mattress, it’s best to compare mattress brands and their features.

You’ll also want to take your sleeping positions into consideration. For example, side sleepers prefer medium or medium-soft options, while back sleepers find firm mattresses more suitable.

The Overall Aesthetic

Now that we’ve covered the two most important elements of the bedroom, it is time to move on to the fun part. By deciding on the design, you will be able to choose the rest of the furniture and the details you will use to decorate the room.

Some of the popular styles for the bedroom are Scandinavian, Bohemian, Art Deco, Industrial, Cottage, and Coastal.

Keep It Minimalistic

Regardless of the design approach you choose, it’s crucial not to go overboard with furniture and accessories. A study published in 2017 found that staying in a cluttered room can cause stress and negatively impact mental well-being.

A common consequence of stress is insomnia or other sleep disorders. Knowing all this, you can understand why it is key to keep the clutter at bay in the bedroom and to stick to minimalist principles.

Let There Be Light

Lighting is important for setting the mood, but it also has practical value. Harsh overhead light bulbs are unnecessary in a room like this. Instead, you want your bedroom lights to be soft. They can still serve the aesthetic purpose if you get a unique chandelier or other fixture.

Still, if you are an avid reader, you will want to have a task light for bedtime reading. A table lamp or a wall lamp above the bed will be useful for that. Plus, they also come in handy when you don’t want to get up from your bed just to turn off the light before going to sleep.

A Place to Land Your Feet

Getting out of a warm and comfy bed can be difficult, especially when you need to go to work or have chores to do. And landing your feet on a cold floor first thing in the morning definitely makes it worse.

To make things better, be sure to include warm fuzzy area rugs on both sides of the bed. This will additionally make the room look cosier.

The (Un)necessary Furniture

Yes, we’ve agreed that the bedroom design should be minimalist, but you will also need other furniture pieces beside the bed.

The most important ones are nightstands – a place to rest your books, a glass of water, and a table lamp. Furthermore, you will need a closet for your wardrobe.

If you have enough space, you should definitely include a special feature, such as a reading nook or a relaxing area (a cosy armchair, a floor lamp, and a small club table).

All Things Natural

Natural elements are vital for achieving the ‘zen’ you are looking for. That’s why you should aim to include as many wooden elements as possible. This can be your material of choice for the flooring, closet, nightstands, and bed frame.

Additionally, you can introduce some houseplants that are decorative and safe for the bedroom.

Finish up with Details

Finally, it is time to get (cautiously) creative. You can decorate your walls with artwork, photographs, or simply empty frames.

You can also put some fresh flowers in a vase and keep them on your nightstand or club table. The comfy layered look can be created with an abundance of throw pillows on the bed.

Still, keep in mind that you shouldn’t go overboard with the accessories, as you want to achieve a soothing, relaxed look.
