The bedroom is an essential room in the home, especially when it comes to your health and wellness! Not only is it our oasis of rest after a long day, but it’s also the place we go to for comfort and peace. So we must make our bedroom the place we want it to be and ensure that it is as relaxing as possible because that’s what everyone needs as they settle down for the night.
The 3 key points to keep in mind when you’re creating a relaxing space is
- Reduce and organize any and all clutter as it can cause stress in unnecessary ways.
- Avoid bringing stress-inducing items into the bedroom (bills, paperwork, work, etc.
- Remove any distractions that may keep you restless such as TV, Stereo’s or harsh light sources.
Now that we know the main three things to look out for when it comes to making a bedroom more relaxing, we need to start looking at add-ins that will promote a relaxing environment and help you have better more restful periods of sleep.
A fireplace may not be your first thought for a bedroom, but with the right room, it’s the perfect addition. Not only will you experience the warmth of a Valor Fireplace up close and personal, but the flickering flames can also help you relax and unwind. The fire will also offer the room a softer source of light, allowing you to diminish any of the harsh light sources that may be causing you to be restless. Consider installing a smaller fireplace such as the Valor Portrait as it won’t take up much valuable space but will make a big impact.
It’s been said before that the light from a candle can change the feel of a whole room. If that’s the case, why not bring some of the soft light and warmth into your bedroom? Wax candles create a pleasant scent and can help make the room feel more relaxing; however, it’s essential to ensure these candles are always being attended to and never left burning while sleeping or out the room. Another great alternative is using battery-operated candles! You can use these candles in any part of the home, and some even are equipped with a timer, which will automatically turn off while you drift to sleep.
It can be truly amazing how a photo can bring you to a happy memory or a favorite past time in a matter of seconds. This is a great reason why personal pictures of your favorite memories are perfect for the walls of your bedroom. While you are winding down at night, preparing for bed, you can give yourself time to reflect on each photo and how you felt on that particular day. For a modern twist, consider creating a striking gallery of pictures on one wall to make a statement! Black and white photos also give the room a great look and can give the room more of a cohesive look.
Linens are the second most crucial part of any bedroom, besides the bed itself. This is because your linens are what you will sleep and dream in every night, so you want to make sure they are as relaxing and comfortable as possible. Consider investing in quality sheets that are comfortable to the touch, promote proper airflow, and most combine well with your home’s color scheme! If possible, also consider purchasing matching sheets and bed sets, so your bed has a uniformed and more organized look.
