Gathering Calming Décor Ideas For Bedrooms
Sounds simple enough, right?? Paint your walls a dark colour, get sun blocking shades, and noise cancelling doors and walls (ok not so simple)…There are other ways (easier ones) of achieving that calming effect with calming décor ideas for bedrooms.
These ideas for bedrooms will get your brain flicking (only for the time you’re awake, promise you’ll be sound asleep once you apply them).
Dim the Lights
The first step is to manage the level of light you get in your little slumber sanctuary.
You’ll need to think of some window coverings, like this range of blinds in Sydney.
Whether blinds, drapes or curtains, it’s about shutting out those annoying rays of light and environmental factors that threaten to get in the way of your hard earned rest.
Lovely lightshade or nightlight can really make a difference. It creates a soft ambience in your bedroom. The luminescent glow can allow you to bask in peaceful thoughts that will send you off into the land of nap in no time at all. Though, you should stay away from blue light!
Don’t forget to turn off all those pesky electronic devices to get a better sleep, science says so.
Set the Right Foundations
A good, high-quality mattress really is an investment worth its weight in gold.
We spend around a third of our lives sleeping. So, getting the right support for our bodies is very important for our rest and relaxation.
If you’re constantly tossing and turning, consider the fact that your mattress might not be up to snuff.
There’s also a great range of mattresses, called ‘dual comfort’ on the market. They tailor the specifics of your side of the bed and that of your bed buddy, according to your individual preferences.
This usually relates to the firmness of the underlying structure that makes up the mattress. Specialised mattresses can be a great benefit to the quality of your sleep and your overall health.
Colour Yourself Happy (or Sleep)
Stop counting sheep! Instead, colour yourself happy.
This can be achieved via the shade of paint on your bedroom walls. Colour has powerful implications for your mood.
If you’re someone who struggles to get a little shut-eye, perhaps think about switching up your colour scheme. Pastels spell serenity like nothing else.
Research shows that the best colour for your walls is a shade of blue. It’s an easy enough colour to work with, particularly in its lighter shades.
You could consider some wallpaper in delightful cornflower hued vistas. These might just form the inspiration that your soul needs to float away into a peaceful daydream or night time slumber. Take a look at these beautiful designs.
Piles and piles of fluffy, freshly laundered pillows…there’s nothing quite like that feeling. Ahhhh!!!
Sink right into them and get carried away in blissful reverie. It’s really all about texture when you want to invoke a sensual feel.
A beautiful throw rug always adds that element of snuggle. In my opinion, you can never get enough ‘fluffy’.
Scatter cushions, blankets, the works. Get the designer home look going. A cat also makes for an excellent snuggle companion, just don’t mistake Mr. Whiskers for another pillow.
Did you know animals can have a profound ability to help us relax?
Your Nose Knows The Way
Aromas, there’s more to them than you think.
A great way to add that little extra in the way of calm to your bedroom décor is through a touch of aromatherapy.
Light a candle, an oil burner or even an illuminated diffuser. Vanilla is such a delicious, warming scent. Lavender is well-known for its calming properties and its propensity to have a positive influence on insomnia.
You could even try a bunch of dried lavender springs to hang on the wall for a little rustic country charm.
Carry this botanical theme onwards with house plants. Peace lilies dramatically improve air quality, so you have a restful night’s sleep, minus the sniffles.
