Apart from keeping the room decluttered, always invest in a good mattress, pillow set and bed sheet set. Subtle and colour-coordinated bedspread will instantly look more put together and soothing. Instead of bold primary colours, choose soothing shades and a restful palette of monochromatic tones. Gentle hues of blue, lavender, or green are considered calm and serene.
The ceiling is the fifth wall of the room and is often overlooked. While one does not need to fill it with a bright colour or pattern, certain elements like hanging lights will bring colour, pattern, and texture to the wall you will look up to while lying down. A chandelier or a canopy bed can add a hint of luxury to space.
Even toned, light shaded furniture will look much more cohesive when paired with subdued shades of furnishing. Dark hues can feel too jarring and can also make the ambience gloomy. Furnish your bedroom with only essentials like the bed frame, side tables, a single dresser as per space allows. Sleek furniture will assure your room looks visually spacious.
Keeping your bedroom clean largely depends on how you store all your personal belongings. Consider storing everything out of sight with the help of under-the-bed storage, side tables with drawers, trunks that can function and settees and more.
Indulge yourself with a cosy and quiet corner to sit and read. Create an intimate reading or lounging area with a comfortable chair and footstool at the end of your bed or in a corner. If your bedroom has a window, build a nook there with the help of rugs, ottomans and floor cushions.
