A bedroom is a place where you spend most of your time. After a long and tiring day, you rely on your bedroom to relax and make all your stress go away. The bedroom is the place where you will recharge yourself and get ready for the battles of the next day. It also serves as your sanctuary when you have the blues and need some alone time.
While decorating the whole house, people often ignore the bedroom. To make your bedroom more relaxing, it is essential that you decorate it with the proper things. Here is a list of some bedroom essentials without which your bedroom is incomplete. It is both for first-time bedroom setups and for people already having a nicely decorated bedroom.
● A Comfy Bed
The most basic function that a bedroom serves is sleeping. And for a good night's sleep, the most important thing is a good bed. Please note that we are talking about both the mattress and the frame.
Different people have different ideas about a comfortable bed. While some prefer four-poster or canopy beds, other are into something much simple. Whatever your liking is, make sure that it fits well with your room, and is capable of serving all the functions that you use your bed for.
As for the mattress, according to your comfort and body structure chose the right bed. While soft spring mattress is great to snuggle in, it is not good for the body. If you have back problems, go for the less soft mattresses.
If you are on a budget or want to do something different with your bedroom, you can skip on the bed and just put the mattress or the futon on the floor. Throw in some pillows, and it will make a great place to sit on as well as to sleep on.
● A Nice Nightstand
While enjoying a lovely relaxing time in your bed, you will have some things like books, phone, glasses, laptop, etc. You will need a nightstand where you can keep all these things before dozing off. You will also need the nightstand to keep a night lamp or a desk lamp on it. This is more crucial in case you do not like the idea of walking to your bed in a dark room after switching off the lights.
Make sure that you only buy the nightstand after you have purchased your bed and mattress. The height of the nightstand should be by the height of your bed. It is better if the nightstand is a few inches higher than your mattress. It will be simpler for you to reach up rather than reaching down, once you are lying down in your bed.
If you do not have the space to keep a nightstand, you can also consider hanging a bracket or a shelf on the wall, by your bedside. It will also cost you much less.
● A `Reclining Rug
After having a great sleep, if you do not want to step on to a cold floor, then a rug is what you need. It will work as an excellent base for your bed and make your room more comfortable to walk in.
There are a lot of variations available. You can either go for a small bedside rug. If you do not want to hide your floors, you should go to a small bedside one. It will only cover either side of your bedroom. If you want one to cover more area, go for a large rug which will cover most of your room.
Instead of using one rug, you can also layer two three rugs together. Use contrast colors and textures for adding more depth to the room.
● A Serene Seating area
You are not the only person who will be entering your bedroom. For the other people, you need to arrange a seating area, if you do not want everyone to sit in your bedroom. Not only this, but a seating area is also necessary so that you have an option to enjoy all the corners of your room. While sitting on the bed is a good option, but not always. For times when you feel; like enjoying the outside view or having a good conversation with your partner, the seating area will help you.
There are a lot of options when it comes to the seating area. Armchairs, benches, ottomans are all excellent options for a bedroom seating area. While choosing the seating area, keep in mind the size of your room. Do not try to squeeze in things.
