With today’s hectic lifestyles, everyone needs a place to escape. There’s no better place to rest, restore, and rejuvenate than your bedroom. Miskelly Furniture has a few simple strategies to help you make this space a relaxing retreat of your dreams…
Start by imagining your ultimate bedroom or finding a photo that inspires you. Then identify your favorite elements: Is it the colors in the room you like the most? Is the headboard what you’ve always dreamed of? Are the bed linens and accessories what are most appealing? Also consider the overall style of your inspiration room–is it traditional, contemporary, transitional, cottage, or eclectic? Defining your style preferences will help guide your design decisions.
Create a Soothing Environment
Once you have a vision for your bedroom, begin your room makeover by organizing and simplifying. It’s hard to relax in a space filled with stacks of papers and piles of laundry. Try to find a place for everything and keep clutter out of sight–and out of mind. Open, uncluttered spaces give the eye a place to rest and encourage relaxation. A soothing color palette is also a must-have for creating a calming retreat.
A relaxing bedroom environment helps promote quality uninterrupted sleep, the cornerstone of healthy living. Evaluate your bedroom for its ability to support your sleep needs. Experts recommend bedrooms be dark, cool, and quiet. A supportive mattress set is a key component of a good night’s sleep. If yours is more than eight years old, it’s time for a new one.
Layer in Softness
While furnishings set the design direction of your bedroom, it’s the finishing touches that really make it feel comfortable. Dress your bed in soft layers and add accessories in coordinating colors. Use meaningful photos and decorative elements to personalize your space and complete the look.
