The must have items that will make your bedroom so cozy and relaxing, you’ll never want to leave it
As the colder and wet nights begin, we are putting away our summer dresses and getting out our warmer PJ’s, coats, scarfs and slippers. The gloomy weather also means we will be spending a lot more time at home. Creating a more comfortable, cosy bedroom is key to getting through the coldest winter months, that’s why these essential items will give you all the inspiration you need to snuggle up this winter.
These products can help make your space feel warmer, happier, and more welcoming. Turning you bedroom into a comfortable sanctuary can do wonders for your sleep and your mood. Read on for our must have items for a cosy bedroom.
Adjust the lights.
Getting the lighting right in your bedroom projects a warm glow over everything and helps create a soothing space. Bright lights encourage us to stay awake. When it starts to get dark outside, our bodies naturally begin to move toward a sleeping stage. If our homes are too bright in the evening, we can block that process and our sleep can be effected.
Keep the brighter, overhead lights off in the evening. Instead use a softer and dimmer bedside lamp. You can also string fairy lights over your bed for a soft glow. There’s nothing worse than having to get out of your warm bed and turn the lights off before going to bed. Place lamps and fairy lights within reach so you can just reach out and turn them off.
Try a TV Bed.
There’s nothing more cosy then watching tv in bed. Tv beds are perfectly positioned to allow you to watch all of your favourite programs in the most comfortable way. Once finished, the TV simply slots back into the footboard. Tv beds hide all the messy wires and also saves you space as there is no need for tv brackets or a stand.
Bring on the blankets.
If you want to feel cosy, there is nothing better than snuggling up in some of your favourite blankets. You can never have too many. Choose thick and soft textures such as faux fur, chunky knit, fleece and wool blankets. Go for soothing, calm colours like charcoal, blush and sage to ensure your bedroom feels like a peaceful place for sleeping.
Pile on the pillows.
Similar to blankets, throw pillows are great way to layer and add texture with a variety of colour and patterns. They also help you get really comfortable and cosy when reading your favourite book or watching tv.
An Ottoman bed is an amazing option because they offer a lot of storage space. Ottoman beds are the easiest way to create extra room for all your stuff, without you having to lose on floor space. Using an Ottoman bed, you can really make the most of the square footage you have. The less clutter you have in your room the more relaxing and cosy it will feel.
Invest In A Good Mattress
Invest in a good mattress for ultimate comfort and a deep relaxing sleep. You spend such a large part of your day in your bed so why not splurge and opt for an ultra soft and supportive mattress.
In the day open your curtains to let the sunshine in. When the evening comes, draw them closed for a comfy nighttime feel.
An Accent Wall
Create a bedroom accent wall for a calming, cozy, and cocooning sanctuary. Whether you go for bare brick, wall paper, panelling or a grasscloth wallpaper accent wall, an accent wall can add color, style and character to your bedroom.
Adding some candles in your favourite scents really do add to the warm and cozy vibe. A good candle not only gives you soothing light, it can also fill the room with a relaxing scent.
Getting changed into your comfiest and cosiest pyjamas can truly help you relax and feel warm and cozy at home, so invest in a good pair.
A bed canopy encloses your bed, creating a snug and cosy feel. Not only does a bed canopy look great and make your room look more cosy, they also keep the bed warmer, and screen it from light and sight, this will help you relax and sleep well.
Purchase a natural lavender aromatic mist you can spray around your room and on your pillows. Lavender scent is so calming and cozy perfect before bedtime. Other relaxing scents to try are chamomile, sandalwood, cedar, vetiver, neroli and bergamot
