Let’s see if you can relate to this all too familiar scene: After a long day at work, you collapse into bed, only to watch your mattress fall into the floor. Your exhaustion is immediately replaced with frustration. But it doesn’t have to be! Skip the pity party and treat yourself to a bedroom makeover that gives you the sanctuary you deserve.
From investing in a quality mattress to fostering a soothing atmosphere with soft lighting, here’s how you can upgrade your bedroom into a room full of sweet, uninterrupted dreams.
Invest in a Quality Mattress
There are a few things you can sacrifice when designing a bedroom on a budget but comfort is not one of them. So, start by searching for the right mattress. It’s easier than ever to get one at an affordable price, thanks to online companies such as Leesa and Casper, which will deliver right to your doorstep. Once you select a new mattress, pair it with a strong and sturdy bed frame that complements your space.
Splurge on Bedding
Repeat after us: soft sheets are the key to a restful night’s sleep! Stay cozy by wrapping yourself in warm but breathable bedding. Whether you choose cotton, linen, flannel, or wool, choose a fabric that is non-irritating and gentle on your skin. Depending on the season, layer blankets, quilts, and plush pillows on top of your duvet to make your sleep infinitely more relaxing!
Design a Reading Nook
For some, there is nothing more comforting than a good book. Dedicate a spot in your room that serves as a quiet reading corner to indulge in all your favorite books. Sit back in a snug armchair or chaise lounge and dive into your favorite novel.
Upgrade the Vanity
Who doesn’t love a vanity full of makeup and skincare goodies? Be sure to add some personal touches to your vanity, including pictures of friends and mood boards that capture your current state of mind. Complete your space with a comfy bench or patterned stool.
Dim the Lights
Leave the glaring, fluorescent lights in the office and install warm light bulbs with no more than 15 watts. Soft, mellow lighting at nighttime will ease your weary eyes and create a calming space.
