Like for a lot of people, my bedroom is my retreat from the world. To me there’s nothing better than crawling into bed after a long day and snuggling up with my pups and husband. On weekends we spend a good amount of our days in bed bingeing on Netflix, taking naps, and basically hiding from the rest of humanity for a while.
I take my bedroom sanctuary very seriously, you guys. It’s easily my favorite room to be in. I’m sure this rings true for most of you as well, but believe it or not, I’ve heard a lot of people say they don’t particularly like spending time in their bedrooms. I think it’s probably because bedrooms often get overlooked in terms of decorating. A lot of us spend more time and effort making the more communal areas of our homes comfortable but often ignore what’s behind the closed doors of our sleeping quarters.
Stop that right now!
I’ve teamed up with Downy Unstopables to give you a few little tips and tricks to help turn your bedroom into your ultimate relaxation station.
Color and Decor
Color and decor change our mood without us even realizing it. When decorating your bedroom, make sure you choose colors and decor that make you happy and relaxed. Have you ever been in a horrible hotel room and couldn’t relax because the decor was so gross? Oh, is that just me? Regardless of whether you go for a fresh garden scheme with florals and pastels or a simplistic modern scheme with muted and soothing colors, just make sure it makes you feel good. Try bringing decor pieces and accessories you love into your bedroom, like framed pictures from your vacations as art, things you like to collect, or your favorite family heirlooms. Make it your own personal happy place.
The soul of the bedroom lies with the bed, obviously. I’ve slept on many mattresses in my life and I can tell you the one thing I’ve learned is that a bed is only as comfortable as the bedding on it. You’d be surprised with how new, good-quality bedding can make it feel like you’re sleeping on a brand-new bed. Clean, crisp cotton sheets and a nice fluffy duvet will keep you comfy and cozy in the best way. Don’t forget to make them smell nice! Downy Unstopables In-Wash Scent Boosters keep your sheets smelling fresher for longer. By improving the comfort level of your bed, you’ll improve your quality of sleep. It’s science!
I can’t even emphasize the importance that scent has in a bedroom. I mean come on, how is anyone supposed to really relax in a stinky- or stale-smelling room? You can’t easily ignore unpleasant smells, and scent can change your mood drastically. You know that great feeling you get after you’ve just cleaned? You can have that all the time with Downy Unstopables. The line has plenty of scent solutions to keep your rooms smelling their best, from wall plug-ins, to room sprays, to candles for ultimate ambience. Remember that fresh garden decor theme I mentioned earlier? There’s a scent to match that. Want your room to smell like a fresh summer day? There’s one for that too.
I hope these quick and easy tips help you create the bedroom you deserve and desire. Sweet dreams!
