When in your bedroom, it should be a place in your home where you can feel relaxed and calm, in your own space away from the stresses of everyday life. However, some people do not ensure their bedroom is a place of tranquility and don’t feel relaxed and composed when in it, and leave the bedroom feeling the same as when they came home after a tension filled day. Your bedroom should always have a personable and comfortable feel to it, helping and enabling you to feel relaxed and tranquil. If your bedroom could do with a makeover or you want to make it feel more accessible and soothing to you, it can easily be remedied.
The effects of lighting
The lighting that you use in your bedroom can have a really big impact on how you feel in terms of atmosphere and mood. Lights that use dimmer switch controls can be a great way to help you relax – if you want a hazy, noon-like feel in your room you can set the lighting to low or if you want a brighter light to read or write in your diary, you can easily do that. This type of lighting allows you to control your mood – a bright light brings a clear atmosphere (even at night) or a dimmer light allows a more subtle and relaxed feel. However, if this type of lighting isn’t in your budget, you could invest in a lamp which also brings a relaxed feel. Candles are a also a positive addition to your bedroom, and cheaper than fitting a new light or buying a lamp.
The warmth of your room
If you find that your bedroom is cold most of the time, then you will know that it is almost certainly impossible to relax in. Being cold means you will be uncomfortable and unable to settle. Your bedroom should be the place where you can lie back and relax without having to worry. It can get pretty expensive having the heating on permanently in your home, unless you have Million Dollar Makeovers. If you want to look after the pennies, instead you can use a portable heater to provide you with some heat.
The positives of comfort
The most important aspect about your bedroom is the comfort. You should make sure that you have a duvet which you like and will help to keep you warm during the night. You should also always make sure that your pillows are perfect for the way you like them and the way you like to sleep; this will provide you with a better sleep at night, rather than tossing and turning. It may also help if you turn your mattress over every few months, as this will stop it from getting worn and uncomfortable. Although, if you have turned the mattress over too many times then it will still be uncomfortable so make sure you turn it over only when needed, rather than for the sake of it.
