When it comes to making your home your sanctuary, one of the most important rooms to work on is your bedroom. Sure, not many people might see it, but it’s where you go to relax and recharge your batteries, and so it’s important that you make it somewhere special to be. But, how to go about it without breaking the bank or your spirit? Never fear, here are my favourite ways to transform your bedroom with minimal effort.
A lick of paint
It goes without saying that one of the most transformative things you can do to a room is to decorate it and the simplest way to do that, for me, is to paint it! (I’m not a big fan of wallpapering, I find it much too stressful!) What you decide to do will be very much down to your own personal taste, but try not to go for anything that is too bright – more muted tones are better suited to a room that you want your brain to relax in.
Comfort is key
One of the most important factors when looking to get a good night’s sleep is to make sure your environment is as physically comfortable as possible, and so your bed is absolutely crucial. They say mattresses have a lifespan of around 8 years, so if yours is older than this, it might well be time to treat yourself to a new one. There are so many different variations of mattress out there, but I personally love a combination of air-sprung and memory foam, it’s bliss!
Cover those windows
There’s nothing worse than being woken up early with the sun pouring through thin or poorly fitting curtains, so make sure your windows are covered properly to ensure you don’t get roused earlier than needed! There’s a whole range of different options for window coverings, whether you go for curtains, blinds or shutters, so do your research to see which option works best for you.
Make it yours
Injecting your own personality into a space will make you feel more relaxed and cosy – put photos up around the room of the people and places you love, have knick-knacks on display that hold special memories for you, and fill the room with your favourite scents (candles, diffusers and room sprays are great for this). When your mind is in a good place it’s much easier to fall asleep and get a fully rested, contented night’s sleep.
