Your bedroom should be your private getaway from everything happening in the world and the craziness of everyday life. Redesigning this essential space for yourself is not the least challenging project, but it is undoubtedly one of the most important ones. Indeed, it started to seem like the current travel restrictions and social distancing measures will not leave us anytime soon.
So, preparing for a winter of safe isolation, self-love, deep relaxation, and comfort is essential. If you are currently looking for inspiration for your upcoming bedroom redesign, here are six simple steps to give you a headstart on your project.
Minimalism is not a new trend or mindset, but it seems to have been becoming more popular in recent years. Indeed, we all look up at the classy, clean-looking, sophisticated interiors of Scandinavian bedrooms! Luckily, the subtle colors, the natural elements, and the simple yet elegant design of this style are easily re-creatable.
By embracing minimalism, you can spend less on your bedroom's redesign and enjoy a deeper feeling of freedom. Indeed, this movement allows you to concentrate your colic on a few high-quality furniture items that matter to you and make you happy. At the same time, you can do something amazing by not buying in the fast-fashion trends that are so harmful to the environment!
Pick a Design That Makes It Easier to Clean
Clutter and disorganization is the number-one enemy of productivity and relaxation. Indeed, it has been seen that our brain has to work twice as hard to cut out the distractions in the background and focus on what matters. However, when it comes down to finding a little relaxation in your own bedroom, clutter can work against you. Indeed, it can raise stress levels and cause you to remain more alert than you would want to!
Picking a simple design with just a few high-quality, stylish furniture pieces can help you create a room that is easy to clean and enjoy. Of course, since you will be investing in just a limited number of items or a set, finding out more information and asking for a professional designer's help might be a solution to consider.
Bring Nature In With Thoughtful Details
Living a step closer to nature can be an excellent way to look after your physical and mental wellbeing. Indeed, it encourages us all to be more active, healthy, and relaxed in our daily lives. Yet, we all tend to spend the majority of our lives indoors, either at home or at our workplace. During the last few months, this has become evident!
So, one of the few ways to regain that strong connection with nature is to bring it indoors! You can easily do so by introducing house plants and natural elements in your bedroom, such as wooden furniture, natural fibers, and neutral colors that remind you of nature.
Invest in High-Quality Linens
Redesigning a bedroom is all about introducing details that can enhance its comfort. And, nothing is ever as comfortable and pleasant on our skin as luxurious, high-quality linen! These can create a unique look for your bed and can save you from skin irritation and other conditions. Investing in a linen set that is a little more sophisticated can pay you back in higher sleep quality and better rest! If you are not an expert, you can use one general rule: avoid anything that has synthetic fibers and opt for a thread count above 150!
Put an Accent on Exclusive Lighting
Lighting is essential in your room, especially because you are more likely to spend time there at nighttime or during rainy afternoons! Wo, whether you prefer to read, listen to music, or watch your favorite Netflix show here, you will need lighting. However, the lighting system's aim in your room should not be the one to light up the room entirely.
Indeed, this might add strain to your eyes and make the whole room feel uncomfortable and not relaxing. Instead, add several task lights next to your bed and the room's entrance. Plus, you might consider adding light points in the corners where you need it the most, such as around the mirror or next to the wardrobe. If you can opt for dimmable light and natural light temperature, you will be able to enjoy the best results!
Keep Distractions Out
Your bedroom should be a personal and private retreat for you and your other half. Keeping all tech, gadgets, and distractions out can help you relax and enjoy the things you don't have time for during the day. For example, decide to keep your TV only in the living room and, if possible, keep your phone out too!
