How to Turn Your Bedroom into a Personal Oasis

 

At the end of a long, hard day, you want to relax somewhere that you can unwind, sleep, and wake up feeling totally rejuvenated. Shake off the troubles of the day, sit back in bed or in a comfy chair, maybe watch your favorite show or read a book, and let yourself truly take it easy. Well, it’s not exactly easy to do that when your bedroom is shabby and unfinished, or you just don’t have any of the comforts that make a place truly your own. Don’t worry, with a few easy steps you can turn your room into a relaxing, luxury oasis. Check it out.

Step 1: A comfy bed

You spend a little under a third of your life in bed. Not only do you spend tons of time in your bed, you also spend some of your most important time there: sleeping. Sleep helps us rest after a long day, but it also provides essential functions like helping us fight off infections, deeply ingrain memories, and work through difficult subconscious problems. In order to have the comfiest bed possible, consider these points:

  • Make an investment in a great mattress: know whether you prefer firm or soft mattresses, then get one that you can rely on for years to come.
  • Treat yourself to a luxury comforter: make sure it’s nice enough that you’ll look forward to pulling over yourself all day long.
  • Pick out the perfect pillows: did you know three are different kinds of pillow for different kinds of sleeper? Make sure that when you pick out your pillows, you’re choosing ones ideal for back sleepers, stomach sleepers, or side sleepers – whichever best describes you!

The benefits of sleep are often tragically underappreciated, and many people suffer adverse health consequences as a result. Whatever it takes for you to feel like your bed is a cloud that you can easily melt into, it’s usually a good idea to go for it.

Step 2: Mood furniture

Of course, when you’re enjoying your bedroom, you don’t want to spend the entire time in bed. It’s important to have other options too, like an extra-comfy easy chair for reading, or a small loveseat for spending time with that special someone.

If you’re trying to decide what sort of furniture options work best with your bedroom, it’s a good idea to think through how you like to spend time in your room. Are you a fan of watching TV before bed? It’s usually a good idea reserve your bed for sleeping, so if you do like binging a show before bed, having a comfy chair you can sit in to relax before you’re ready to sleep is a great idea.

 

Are you a total bookworm? Having a little reading nook in your bedroom is a great idea, then! Set up a chair, plush ottoman, plenty of blankets, and a small side table for your reading pleasure. Maybe see if a little bookshelf with your favorite novels fits there as well!

Do you prefer to do some yoga before you hit the hay? Then maybe adding ample space to your room is the best idea. Find a plush carpet to lay out over the floor, which will add to the cushion of your yoga matt while giving the room some character. Then add a cute meditation cushion for your post-stretch mindful practice!

Step 3: Accessorize

It’s not just outfits that could use accessorizing. In order to truly make your bedroom a luxury oasis, you’ll need those personal touches that make it feel like home. What these are will totally depend on your own style, but there are some great general options that almost anyone will love:

  • Potted indoor plants that give your room the feel of an urban jungle
  • A tapestry that’s warm, welcoming, and shows your eye for design
  • Photos of friends and family that you can look at lovingly as you drift off to sleep
  • A safe place to store your phone away from bed once you’re ready to sleep (hey, scrolling before bed is terrible for your sleep!)

As you decide the best way to turn your bedroom into the ideal haven, make sure you take special care to make it suit your character as well. Follow these tips for a relaxing bedroom you’re sure to love!
