As we spend on average one third of our lives sleeping, a comfortable environment should not be underestimated. Because only if the bedroom is visually calm can we find relaxation after a stressful day at work. It is no secret that we sleep better in a tidy room where the bed is made and aired regularly. However, today we explain how to tidy up your bedroom and why a good green space can also contribute to well-being. From scented candles to pillows, from storage tips to the right wall color – with these simple furnishing tips, you can transform the bedroom into the ultimate haven and create the foundation for sweet dreams. Here are 5 tips for creating a cozy atmosphere in the bedroom.
As the bedroom should not be too cluttered, decorative items should always be chosen with care. Comfortable pillows, a patterned bedspread or dimmable bedside lamps provide on the one hand the optical trick and on the other hand support the atmosphere of well-being. If it is best to avoid any other decoration, the wall behind the bed can be arranged a little more creatively, because it is not in the field of vision at the time of falling asleep anyway. From wallpaper with ornaments to photo collage to porcelain birds, anything goes here, anything you want!
Because the bedroom is the most private room in the entire apartment, guests are rarely allowed in – but that doesn’t mean you can spare yourself the storage. To sleep better, the closet should be emptied twice a year and everything in it should have its permanent place. While there may be a glass of water on the nightstand or an evening reading, there should be room in the drawers for nasal spray, reading glasses or headphones – so everything is always within reach.
While you’re free to experiment in the living room, calm tones are best for the bedroom. Blue has been shown to have a positive effect on the sleeping environment, and powdery tones like mint or pink also have a soothing charisma. If you like classics, you can’t go wrong with white furniture – which gives a certain freshness, from the bed linen to the curtains to the walls, and can also be combined with shades of gray or beige for variety.
Flowers create an overall fresh look, but not all plants are appropriate for the bedroom. Plants that smell too strong, for example, can cause headaches or nausea and lead to insomnia. On the other hand, large-leafed flowers provide a better indoor climate, as they also humidify the air.
If you have limited space in your bedroom, you should consider a bed with a storage box. For example, you can easily accommodate a second set of bed in it, which would otherwise just get in the way everywhere. As an extension of the wardrobe, small colorful boxes can also be stacked on the floor – so you can store socks, scarves or bikinis and at the same time bring a little color to the room.
