More Changes That’ll Make A Big Difference To Your Bedroom

More Changes That'll Make A Big Difference To Your Bedroom

***Collaborative post***

Ah, bedrooms! Bedrooms deserve all your attention. In fact, in many ways, the bedroom is the most important room inside your home. It’s the place where you go to rest so you can wake up ready for a new day. Therefore, homeowners are constantly looking for new ideas to improve the decor and the atmosphere of the bedroom. In a previous article, we already reviewed some of the best changes you can make to create a big difference. Elegant lighting can change the focal point and create a dim ambience before going to bed. Elegant cushions paired with a throw can dress the bed and make it look more appealing. Add a rug by the side of the bed so you can set out of bed in style and with warm feet! The addition of mirrors can add depth and light to the bedroom. Pair photos or artworks with greenery to build a welcoming and soothing atmosphere. 

But that’s not all. There’s so much more you can do to improve your night’s sleep. 

A special bed for your pet

If you have a dog or a cat, you might be familiar with the struggle of sharing the bed with your beloved pet. Pets want to stay close to you, even at night. So, it’s not unexpected for a pet owner to wake up feeling sore and tired after sharing the bed. If you are not comfortable with keeping your pet out of the bedroom, you can consider the addition of a mattress from Pawpedics or a similar brand for your pet. A dog or cat bed can maintain your bond with your pet without having to share the bed!

Make it screen-free

As tempting as it is to watch a film while lying down in bed, you want to keep the TV out of the bedroom. Screen time makes it hard to sleep. The average person watches over 35 hours of TV in a week. That’s approximately 5 hours of TV each day. When you include working hours, you are likely to go to bed late at night and feel tired. Besides, a screen-free room allows for a better and deeper bond with your partner. You can lie down together, make plans for the future, and talk about your days rather than turn on the TV. 

Air purifier

The bedroom contains a lot of allergens and VOCs, ranging from pet dandruff to bedding fabrics. Additionally, mould spores, dust mites, and synthetic materials can also be a source of discomfort. Unfortunately, these issues are invisible to the naked eye, so most people don’t realise how unclean the air is inside the bedroom. A portable air purifier can be crucial to clear the air and preserve your sleep. 

Breathable beddings

Nobody likes to be sweaty at night. The previous heatwave in the UK has made us aware of the essential role of our beddings. Breathable fabrics such as cotton and linen are much better suited for the bedroom. They reduce overheating at night and keep a healthy air circulation around your body. In short, you wake up feeling refreshed. 

It’s time to make your bedroom a sleep haven. Increasing comfort level inside the bedroom doesn’t need to break the bank. Sometimes, it’s the little things such as adding a bed for your dog or changing your bedsheets that can make all the difference. Lie down, relax, and catch up on your zzz.

From dusk till dawn: Bedroom of your dreams

From dusk till dawn: Bedroom of your dreams

From dusk till dawn: Bedroom of your dreams

Think back to when you first moved into your home and that priority list you made. At the top were the grand ideas you had for the kitchen, and how you were going to create the perfect living room to entertain guests and make your kids bedrooms exactly the way they wanted them. Then, right at the bottom of that list, was your bedroom.

Why this always seems to be the case is anyone’s guess. It’s probably to do with funds, time and the fact it isn’t a common space; that’s why most decorating jobs tend to get put off and put off. However, we have summer rolling in thick and fast and, well, a new season has a way of uplifting us and filling us with energy; so why not focus all that on finally getting the bedroom of your dreams.

Come on, it’s your bedroom. It’s the place you go to get a good night’s sleep and the first thing you see when your eyes first crack open. Basically, it all starts and ends here, so give it that uplift you deserve.

The Bed

This is it, the pièce de résistance. It is going to be the most prominent feature to look at and the one piece of furniture to ensure tomorrow is even more amazing than today was. It’s where you go for sweet dreams and sweeter starts. So start with what’s important to your taste and build from there. It could be a snazzy headboard, nice soft Egyptian linens, a duvet you could get lost in, or hidden space under the bed to put your odds and ends.

The Drapes

When we imagine a bedroom of our dreams, we tend to imagine miles and miles of fabric adding to the whole dimension, and rightly so. Yes, we’re talking about having gorgeous curtains that dance between pretty and practical, in which you can save a bob by getting online curtain fabrics (the Internet is amazing sometimes!). But don’t stop with the curtains, because curtains alone don’t scream and shout, not like a bed surrounded by drapes. That’s the kind of thing a honeymoon suite is made of. That’s the thing dreams are made of.

The Chair

Your bedroom is more than just a room made for sleeping; it is your personal space, your room to escape to, which is why you need to add a cozy chair or sofa to a corner. It could be an ottoman or a Chesterfield or a hanging chair, or anything that takes your fancy. It is your space to curl up and read a book, or sip on your frothy hot chocolate or collect your thoughts. That’s what you want a dream room to be about, enjoying the little things.

The Glamour

Dreams tend to lean toward the unattainable, the luxurious and the glamour; so why not add a little splash of something wow, and a little dash of something special. It could be a chandelier above your bed or a dressing table lined with flower and perfumes. It could be throws and pillows, fairy lights and mirror decorations. Luxury is subjective, so whatever makes you feel a little more special is what you should get. Don’t worry about the expense either, there are always ways to save a bit, it’s just about hunting for a bargain.

The Fireplace

A lot of old houses would have had fireplaces in every room. It was just what they did back then when the world was freezing and double-glazing was as mythical as unicorns. However, there is very little that oozes luxury like having an exposed fireplace in your bedroom. It just adds to the dimension. It brings in a focal point that wasn’t there before. Of course, you don’t need to expose an ornate fireplace in order to realize this dream because electric fireplaces are becoming less and less expensive. Oh, and did we mention the remote. Oh yeah, you could lay in bed and turn on the flames with just a flick of a switch. Hello, dream bedroom.

The Little Things

Life is all about the little things and your bedroom should be no different (stop it!). That’s where adding something like a bunch of fresh flowers once a week can really make a bedroom pop. Something bright and wonderfully smelly, that’s what you want. Or why not add a little tea set to your room. Not only will this look beautiful sat on your freshly made bed each day, it will encourage you to use your room to relax in. Cuppa in one hand, book in the other, no noise or distractions around you. Bliss. That is another word for luxury.
