The bedroom is a room where comfort is paramount. If you’re not comfortable and relaxed, then you’re not going to get to sleep very easily. Your decor choices can have a huge impact on just how well your bedroom meets that need, too. Here, we’re going to look at some tips that can play a big role in making your bedroom cosier.
Your furniture is going to dominate the over visual style of the room so you can set the right tone immediately. Incorporating wood (even if it’s not true wood) in your furniture, as well as in your walls, or floors, help to create a feeling of natural warmth and cosiness. Even if it’s not real, emulating the look of that grain can have a profound effect on the overall style of the room.
Of course, your choice of colours is always going to play a major role in the overall “feel” of a room. If you’re aiming for cosiness first and foremost, then you might want to stick to warmer neutrals. This can include the warmer tones of grey, browns, beiges, faint reds, and even more slate-y kinds of blue, which can bring a sense of peace to the room.
When you think of being cosy, you’re likely to think of being wrapped up in a blanket, maybe with a cup of something warm in your hand. Your bedroom can help achieve that kind of feeling, as well, such as by using many soft furnishings and fabrics. This can include extra upholstery on the bed, throws over your furniture, additional pillows, not to mention comfy area rugs and window treatments.
Your lighting is going to drastically affect the overall feel of the bedroom. First of all, if you’re not getting enough natural light from the windows, you want to add some more visibility. Otherwise, adding accent and ambient lighting, be it via bedside lamps or by fixtures that you fit onto the wall, is going to have a big effect. Using different sources of lighting to create a sense of warmth throughout the room can help give it a very intimate and comfortable touch.
While light is important, you don’t want it when you’re sleeping. Keeping the bedroom as truly dark as possible when you put your head down is key to feeling undisturbed and at rest. Heavy window treatments or specialised types like blackout blinds can play a very important role in this. You want to look at what you can do to keep unwanted noise out, as well, whether by sealing up the window frame, using draft excluders, or otherwise.
The tips above can help your bedroom feel warm, welcome, and cosy, making it the perfect haven to relax at the end of the night, and wood bedroom furniture from Furniture in Fashion can play a key role in helping with that, too.
