HOW TO CREATE A RELAXING BEDROOM
By Jennifer Chukwujekwe
The bedroom is designated to calm and comfort you. Bring the peaceful feeling in and keep the hustle-and-bustle of the rest of your house out by following these tips to create a relaxing bedroom that will restore your energies.
TIDY UP: First and foremost, you should make sure your bedroom is clean. With a clean, fresh space, there’s less to overwhelm your senses. Plus, it’ll help you appreciate the things you love about your room.
COLOUR IT CALM: The most relaxing bedrooms are painted in cool colours that bring to mind a peaceful day. You can use dark accents of navy blue, hunter green or pewter grey as well, but for the most peaceful feel, decorate mostly in soft colours and white.
PLANTS: Living plants bring a sense of life, tranquility, and health that can’t be matched by other bedroom accents. Choose one large plant for the corner, or several smaller plants grouped on your dresser or nightstand.
GET RID OF CLUTTER: Try and get rid of unnecessary things from your bedroom. Decluttering can help you decide which items bring actual value and which do not.
LIGHT YOUR FAVOURITE CANDLES: Candles are great for stressful times because they can remind us of our favourite places and memories. Lighting one you love before you fall asleep can be very soothing. Just don’t forget to blow it out!
