Creating a Calm Bedroom

The bedroom should be a space where you can relax, unwind, and destress from the day. Often though, it becomes cluttered, with clothing piles, we don’t correctly take care of our mattress, and before you know it, you couldn’t be less comfortable in there if you tried. Creating a calm bedroom doesn’t take much time or a significant cash investment.

Plan

Before you start moving things around, have an idea for what you want the room to look and feel like. Of course, calm and relaxing goes without saying. But do you want to change the colour? Have you considered a different style of bed? Spend a few hours with a coffee (or tea) and browse Pinterest for the best bedroom inspiration

Clutter

You probably have a lot of stuff, just heaped up in the corner. Most of us have a chair that only has one purpose in life, and that is to be the home to clothing that is not clean enough for the cupboard or dirty enough for the wash. It might just be time to work out if you need all of the clothing you have. And if you trim down the clothing you have, does the chair still have a purpose? Is your nightstand put to good use? What else do you have in the room that you could do without? Donate what is still good enough to use, bin what isn’t and feel a whole lot happier at having less stuff. 

Bed

When it comes to your bed, it really matters. A soft or saggy mattress can play havoc with your back. Springs sticking out can be painful, and if they pierce the mattress, they are sharp and dangerous. We aren’t great at changing our mattress in good time, sadly we tend to wait too long, and by the time it happens, the damage is already done. Your headboard, as well as being decorative, can serve to separate where you lay your head and your wall. A rattan headboard can add a nice natural feel to your room. 

Green

If you are looking to make the room more relaxed in general, then you should think about adding some touches of green. Tall standing plants are great in the corners of the room, and smaller ones can adorn your window ledges and shelves. Typically plants serve two purposes - one to purify the air around them, which is ideal in your bedroom, and the other is add a natural feel to the space and help you relax. 

Clean

To get the best night's sleep, you should make sure you clean your sheets at least once a week at least and keep dust to a minimum. Remember to vacuum well under the bed and as far under more cumbersome furniture as you can get. 


Aside from all of the material elements in your room, you can also employ a more relaxing evening routine. In your new routine, try to go to bed a little earlier, listen to sleep stories or calming music, and treat anytime after 9.30pm as a late night.
