We could all do with a bit more calm in our lives at the moment, couldn’t we? We need the time to be able to completely unwind, relax and get some rest, and to do that, it helps to be in a calm environment. For those of us who are parents, our bedrooms are often our only bubbles of peace and tranquility, a place that is truly ours. Which is why today we are focusing on what can be done to improve the space in our 3 ways to create a calm bedroom.
Pay attention to the colours and light
We would suggest that this is the best place to start, as you need to pay attention to the colours and light.
It is worth exploring the best colour schemes for bedrooms and then pairing that knowledge with your own personal taste. Think about the different tones that you can create, and ensure that all colours blend seamlessly with one another. A calm room calls for gentle palettes, rather than bold bright clashes.
A close second to colour is the lighting that you choose as it can quickly transform a room. Avoid any harsh, bright lights, instead going for lamps and dimmable options.
Choose soft furnishings and bed linen that you love
Your bedroom should be all about textures and designs that you love, that make you smile to be surrounded by them.
Play around with soft fabrics in here, adding in sumptuous cushions and throws and plush carpets or rugs to sink your toes into each morning. When choosing curtains or blinds, think about how they affect your natural light and how well they will tone with the wall colours, as well as any bed linen that you choose.
It can be worth having a few different sets of bed linen, for practical reasons as well as offering you some flexibility and variety with the designs that you choose. We would suggest that you take a look at ranges with calm colours, florals and simple designs. You can buy Catherine Lansfield bedding from Yorkshire Linen store at a discounted price and there are ranges there to suit all tastes.
Add in your favourite little touches
This is your space, a space that you want to be able to enjoy and completely relax in. As such, it is a good idea to add in your favourite little touches, sprinkled about the room.
This one will be completely personal to you and tailored to your needs. What do you love being surrounded by? What helps you to unwind?
Perhaps a wall mural, canvas or print that means something to you could set the tone of the room.
Or you might choose to get yourself a night stand stacked with your current reading pile, or perhaps you will want some beautiful scented candles burning in there. You might choose to add a few house plants as they can prove to be calming and have the additional benefit of being good for your health. Music might be a must-have for you, or you might choose a statement piece that you adore.
When was the last time you updated your bedroom? Is now the time to create a calm sanctuary?
