Your bedroom should be your peaceful retreat from the rest of the world, where you can go to unwind, recharge, and prepare for the next day. However, clutter, bad color choices, and an uncomfortable mattress could be turning your dream bedroom into a nightmare. If your bedroom isn’t quite how your envisioned it, use these tips to turn it into the room you’ve always wanted:
Clear the Clutter
If your bedroom has become a dumping ground for your unread mail, magazines, work papers, and everything else that doesn’t have a home elsewhere, it’s time to clear it all out. Letting clutter collect in your bedroom will not only make the room look sloppy, but it will also put you on edge and make it difficult for you to sleep. The most calming bedroom designs are the simplest. Select a few carefully chosen accessories to pull your look together. An uncluttered design will also help you rest easier.
Choose Calming Colors
Color has a tremendous influence on mood. In your bedroom, don’t overdo it with bright colors. Blues and greens are soothing colors that can help you unwind after a long day. Red is a fiery color and could energize you when you’re trying to sleep. If you want a red bedroom, opt for softer shades, use it as an accent instead of the dominant color, and pair it with a more calming color, like white or beige, to tone it down. If you prefer yellow, save the bright shades for other rooms in your home and choose a pale, calming yellow for your bedroom. Neutrals are always a safe bet in bedroom design.
Change Your Mattress
A bad mattress will sabotage your bedroom design dreams. Invest in a good mattress that works for your sleeping style. If you have back and neck issues, consider a latex foam mattress. If your partner tosses and turns, a memory foam mattress will absorb the movement so your sleep isn’t disrupted. Try out a few mattresses in a store to see which one feels best.
