Create a Zen Bedroom

bedroom

You want every room in your home to put your mind at ease. Your home is a place to relax and feel comfortable.

No room should be more peaceful and relaxing than your bedroom. You should decorate your bedroom with this in mind.

Our decorating tips will help you create a calm, peaceful bedroom for you to retire too after a long day:

LESS IS MORE

Leave excessive amounts of décor and furnishings for other rooms in your home. The idea of “less is more” should apply to your bedroom. Minimalism is much more peaceful and relaxing than clutter is. Only add one or two pictures on the walls of your bedroom and have as little furniture as necessary to store your clothing and other personal items.

COMFORT IS KEY

Invest in the most comfortable and most-plush bed and bedding you can afford. A good night’s sleep is so important to both your physical health and your mental well-being. If the choice is behind a larger TV screen or a more comfortable mattress, we recommend purchasing the mattress as well as cozy sheets and plush pillows too! Purchase as many pillows as you feel you need for maximum comfort as you sleep.

DIM LIGHTING

Consider installing a dimmer switch in your bedroom in order to leave the lighting level at something more soothing in the evening hours. You should also have a bedside table with a small table lamp on it as another option for dim but functional lighting in the bedroom.

CUSHIONED STEP

You want to install carpet in your bedroom for a cushioned and comfortable step and you might consider going one step further and placing area rugs on top of the carpet throughout the room. This will double the cushioning of the floor. You should purchase a shag rug or or a rug with a thick pad for extra comfort.

ESSENTIAL OILS

A soothing scent is essential for relaxation in the bedroom. The most popular Essential Oil for relaxation is Lavender and we recommend you purchase a bottle and a diffuser for your bedroom. Letting the scent of Lavender fill the air in your bedroom as you sleep is extremely soothing and beneficial to the quality of your night’s sleep.

Implement these design tips for a zen bedroom in your home that will help you relax after a long day and more importantly, help you enjoy a sound night of sleep that will energize your mind and your soul for the next day.
