Fall Asleep Like Royalty with these Bedroom Tricks

While you may have been thinking that this was going to be about tricks of a more degenerate nature, it is a set of tips for decorating your bedroom in such a way that you feel like smiling in joy every time you walk in. There are a lot of different ways in which you can do up your bedroom. Different people have different preferences, of course. We do not blame you if you like going to sleep in a room that looks a lot like Hannibal Lecter’s torture chambers.

However, if you are one of those more classic people who just want to fall asleep on a queen mattress every night and wake up to a sight for sore eyes, these tips are probably more suited for you. Without further ado, here are 5 tricks to get your bedroom looking absolutely marvelous.

Plush pillows

You can never have enough pillows. It doesn’t matter if you are single or you sleep with your loved one. Pillows are absolutely essential. Unlike humans, pillows don’t kick you with the boniest bits of their bodies while you cuddle at night. In addition to this, they can look absolutely wonderful if you pick the right patterns. If you are in doubt as to what patterns to pick, consult someone who knows what they are doing. Typically, you would need to use floral patterns to make the bedroom feel warmer and more homely. However, you shouldn’t be afraid to mix it up with other styles as well. For example, if you have classic white sheets, there is no reason why you shouldn’t have pillows that offer a little more contrast. This will definitely add a splash of color to your bedspread and room in general.

 

Color in the walls

Everyone has the same problem with their bedroom. The wall right over the headboard is almost always blank. Sure, some bedrooms may have a single light fixture in place there, but for the most part it is just a big blank bit of wall that can be rather annoying at times. It will also tend to make your bedroom look a little boring, and you don’t want that when you have a date over. Adding a dash of excitement to the mix is pretty easy though. All you need to do is get something colorful, yet unobtrusive, to fill up the blank space on your wall. This is easier said than done, but it can be done. The best option is to get a hand painted tapestry. These are far warmer than posters or photographs, so they make your bedroom absolutely lovely.

 

Add yourself to the décor

Try not to constantly follow the advice of designers to the T. You need to be able to express yourself in the design of your bedroom. This means that some of your home improvements and furniture needs to show a little of your personality as well. Do you consider yourself a weird, off-center person in the best way possible? You can show this personality in your decorations too. For example, you could hang your paintings just a little askew, like yourself. This can be barely noticeable except to yourself, and it will make you feel like you are truly at home when you look at these little quirks you have put into your bedroom furniture.

Keep the right sizes

Try not to make your bedroom look like the inside of the Mad Hatter’s brain. You need to keep an eye on every part of your room wh, especially when it comes to the scale. Be sure to choose the right sizes for your furniture based on the relative size of your bed. For example, having a huge bedside lamp when you sleep on a low, small single bed is going to make you feel like you have shrunk when you wake up. To avoid this, keep scale in mind when picking just about anything new for your bedroom. As a quick tip, try to go to the same store for different items. The staff will usually be able to help you out as well.

 

Turn your bedroom into a sanctuary

Don’t immediately relegate your bedroom into being the place to sleep in. Instead, consider giving it some extra character. It is the place that you are going to feel the safest, especially at night. Surely it deserves a little more attention?  For example, try placing a chair or a work table in your bedroom (if you have the space). Turn your bedroom into a true sanctuary, a base of operations for your entire life.
