How to Fall in Love With Your Bedroom

How to Fall in Love With Your Bedroom

You’re in your bedroom quite a bit. Do you ever feel like you aren’t loving what you have going on in there? Think about it. Does your bedroom feel unwelcoming? One way to think about it is how would you prepare a room for a guest or, better yet, what if YOU were the guest. What would you want to see in that space? Or what wouldn’t you want to see in that space?  

Would you trip over piles of clothes on the floor? Would you have to move the laundry from the bed to the floor? We’re willing to be the answer to these questions would be no. BUT what if we treated ourselves as we would treat a guest? Thinking about that and incorporating that into your room will make it a haven for you every day. Follow along from one of the top baton rouge home builders, Distinctive Homes, in how to fall in love with your bedroom. 

Are You Tired of the Same Old Look?

Are you bored with the look of your room? If you’ve had the same bedding, same rug, same wall color, same curtains, you name it, it’s time to refresh your bedroom. Swap out the art, put some new furniture in or switch it out with another room. Something as simple as getting a contemporary nightstand can start to make it feel like a whole new room.

Is Your Bedding Boring?

A lot of designers suggest mixing in more layers and textures. If you have matching bedding, mixing things up can dramatically spruce up the room. Add a chunky knit blanket or a bold throw with fringe. Textured pillows can do more for a room than you can imagine. 

More Rest. Less Stress

If you keep mail, bills and to-do lists in your room, guess what? It won’t be serene, restful or inviting. Keep the stressful things out of the bedroom. Designate a new area for necessities.

Set the Mood

…And what we mean by setting the mood is set the mood lighting. Lighting is essential to a bedroom. Consider installing a dimmer switch or a three-way light switch.

Let the Air in

Your bedroom should feel fresh and clean. If you haven’t had the windows open or the room cleaned a while, chances are it’s feeling a bit stuffy—time to clean it from top to bottom. Get under the bed and wipe down all surfaces and throw open those windows and let the fresh air in. 

Where you lay your head is your home and your bedroom is your sanctuary. Whenever you feel like you’re bored with how it looks, it’s time to refresh and start anew. You’ll be amazed at what that can do for you psychologically.
