Guest Post: 5 Ways to Create a Relaxed Bedroom

Creating a relaxed bedroom incorporates multiple factors, that may or may not make sense to us, but add to the overall vibe our bedroom gives. This is why most individuals hire interior designers to create the comfortable and luxurious space they wish to come to after a tiring day at work.

If you currently are not interested in hiring one, these tips are bound to help you create a more relaxed bedroom, good enough to compare to that designed by experts.

1. Soothing Color Tones

The colour palette you choose for your room speaks volumes about your personality and affects the overall mood, every time you or someone else steps into the room. Experts suggest that for a calming experience, one should always go for cooler tones and skip the vibrant ones. Look around and witness the serenity of the blue ocean, the quietness of the early grey morning, or the luxury of a 7-star hotel room.

While these cool tones indicate calmness and a soothing feel, vibrant colors give out an energetic vibe, which is contrary to the idea of a creating a relaxed bedroom in the first place.

2. Invest in Adjustable Beds

The first thing you or anyone will notice after entering your room, is the bed. Therefore your prime investment should be the bedroom furniture. The bed should not only appeal to the eye but be extraordinarily comfortable, making you want to jump in it as soon as you see it. Earlier, we had a wide variety of mattresses to choose from, suiting our needs best.

The latest invention to enter the market are adjustable beds. Adjustable beds are basically perfect for every task, including reading your favorite book, watching TV, or sleeping. Because that wasn’t enough, adjustable bed frames come with therapeutic massage features to provide you with heavenly comfort at home, in your very own bed.

3. Accessories

No we’re not suggesting you go buy another bean bag. There are other accessories you need to purchase in order to get the perfect relaxed feeling once you’re in your room. This may include scented candles, air fresheners, air purifiers or other items that make your room fragrant.

Smell being our strongest sense calls for more attention than does sight. A common mistake individuals often make is ignoring aspects that appeal to other senses. Scented candles are used in massage parlors, clinics and hotel rooms to provide you the most soothing of experiences, and have been scientifically proven to relieve stress too.

4. Say No to Stuffed Rooms

The key to creating a relaxed bedroom is creating as much free space as possible. Beige and white tones are always preferred over darker tones as they give the room an expansive look. Similarly, minimal decor keeps your room clutter free and adds to the contemporary look. While you may be tempted to buy every bedroom accessory you come across, it is important that you take your pick wisely, as you don’t want to come home to a jam-packed room with no place to rest.

5. Adjustable Lighting

As important as everything else mentioned in this article is, lighting plays a crucial role to create a relaxed mood. Understanding how lighting works is key to creating the perfect ambiance. Dim lighting is always found in restaurants that aim at creating a calm ambiance.

Since you spend most of your time in your bedroom, for multiple tasks, you can’t always rely on dim lighting. Therefore you need to have adjustable lighting, with a regulator that dims or brightens up the room, as per requirement. How much and where you need light depends on what colour your furniture is, where do you display the artwork and what corners you create in the room.

It is important that you take into account all these basic factors when renovating the room, since all of these come into play to create the perfect level of comfort in your bedroom.
