Tips for creating a comfortable bedroom

Written by Ben Parker

If you love your bed as much as I love mine then your bedroom is one of the most important rooms to you. A bedroom is a sanctuary, somewhere to get away from everyone and everything. So, naturally, it’s important to get the decor right. Here are five things you can do to make your bedroom a comfortable space to be…

A restful colour scheme

The colour scheme you choose for your bedroom is particularly important. You should opt for something that you will find relaxing. For most people, that means choosing a neutral colour scheme. If you like rich colours, you can still include them. For example, you can opt to buy a colourful bedding set, throw, or headboard. However, usually it is best to restrict the amount of bright colour you use.

Lighting

One aspect of bedroom decor, that people rarely consider is the lighting. This is a real shame, because how you light a space has a big impact on how it looks, and how comfortable it feels. If you share your bedroom with other people, make sure that each person has access to a light source that they have control over. That way everyone will be happy. Doing this means that you can carry on reading while your partner lies back and watches TV, or goes to sleep. It’s always worth installing dimmable lights in any room, but it’s particularly nice to have them in the bedroom. Dimming the lights is a quick and easy way to create a more restful or romantic environment.

A place for everything

Most people find it hard to relax in a cluttered, or untidy, room. Therefore, it’s important to make sure that you have plenty of storage space in your bedroom. If you have built in wardrobes, it makes sense for them to go right to the ceiling. This allows you to maximise the available space. Small cupboards above the wardrobe are a great place to store spare bedding sets, throws and pillows. The fact that these items are soft and squashy means that you can easily use space saver storage bags to store them. Once you have sucked all of the air out of the bag, even a king size duvet will not take up a lot of space.

A few extras

If you have the space and the budget, it’s well worth investing in a few extras for the bedroom. For example, a comfortable padded chair or a small sofa gives you the option to go to your room and curl up away from everyone with a book, or your iPad. Adding a fridge and kettle, or coffee maker, allows you to make yourself a drink without having to venture into a freezing kitchen.

Install an ensuite

If your budget allows, it’s well worth seeing if you can fit an ensuite into the space you have available. You will really appreciate the extra convenience and privacy. In addition, provided it is done well, you will add value to your property.
