If you’re ready to make a change to your sleeping space, but you’re not sure where to start – we’ve got your back. Your bedroom is one of the easiest places in your home to change up, it just takes a little strategy and creativity to figure it out. Keep reading to learn how to revamp your bedroom and turn it into your very own boutique hotel getaway.
Invest in a great mattress
We all know that feeling of sinking into a supremely comfortable hotel mattress. Well, it’s time to capture that same feeling with a memory foam mattress and adjustable bed frame. An adjustable bed frame means you always get to choose your ideal position for sitting up in bed and catching your favorite shows – or just catching Zzs.
Besides your mattress, it’s a good idea to purchase high thread count sheets – nobody wants to cuddle up in their bed with scratchy sheets. Instead, focus on premium sheets that make you look forward to going to bed.
Finally, choose a duvet or comforter that provides insulating properties that will keep you warm in the cold and cool during heat waves. Choose a calming, classic color scheme that you won’t get tired of.
Create an ideal sleeping space
Want to ensure you have the best chance of getting quality sleep? Make sure that you take the steps below:
- Cover all status button lights on your devices with a light-blocking sticker to cut down on light pollution on your room
- Purchase blackout curtains so the morning sun doesn’t cut into your ability to sleep in the morning
- Get a nightstand to stash your phone in
- Put your phone on do-not-disturb mode after 8pm
- Make sure you have soft bedroom lighting like a Himalayan salt lamp
Use fairy lights
If you like an ethereal look in your bedroom, consider changing out harsh lights for fairy lights artfully draped across your room. Not only do fairy lights use a minimal amount of electricity, but they also provide a nice, relaxing ambience. Your bedroom should be a place that you feel total relaxed in – and fairy lights can help get you there!
Get a diffuser
If you really want to feel relaxed but don’t trust yourself around a ton of lit candles, you can get a diffuser. Buy some calming essential oils and a diffuser will waft out scents throughout the night. Diffusers are plentiful and budget-friendly – they can also immediately elevate any bedroom space.
Make your bedroom greener
Adding plants to your bedroom is another great way to liven up the space. If you tend to kill your houseplants, you’ll be happy to know there are plenty of low maintenance options to choose from. Here’s a list of easy plants you can add to your room without worrying about water or light requirements:
- Spider plants
- Jade plants
- Zanzibar gem
- Devil’s ivy
- Fiddle-leaf fig
You can choose hanging pots to save on floor space or install shelves to house all your plant friends.
Purchase soft accessories
One of the best ways to make your bedroom feel cozier is by adding the right accessories. Start with your floors and look for fluffy rugs or floor coverings with fun patterns. Cover your walls in handmade tapestries and add bright-colored throw pillows to your bed. These additions can help level up your bedroom decorating.
If your bedroom is cluttered and disorganized, it can be hard to fully unwind and relax. Take a weekend to create storage solutions for all of your belongings. Fabric boxes are a great way to tuck away your things. If you feel like you have a lot of possessions, you can also start selling and donating things you don’t need any more. Taking a minimalist approach to your bedroom will help make the space feel more upscale.
