Your bedroom is the place you retreat to at the end of the day. Whether you have an hour to relax before you go to bed or just a few minutes, you want to make the most out of your bedroom. So, it must therefore be a place of tranquility and peace. If you are looking at your bedroom and thinking that it does not feel like a tranquil haven, then what improvements can you make? Investing a little time and energy into giving your bedroom an upgrade and making it feel like a tranquil haven can have a huge impact on both your mental and physical wellbeing.
Make the Bed the Focal Point
One of the key areas in any tranquil bedroom is the bed in which you sleep. A feature headboard may be crucial, and new bedding may give your bedroom the aesthetic you are going for. The bed is the dominant feature of the room so you might as well make it an attractive focal point too. In addition to grabbing your attention, it has to be comfortable, and for this to happen it needs to have an extra firm mattress. A strong mattress will ensure that you are not wriggling and waking up every hour. If a mattress is too soft, it can feel uncomfortable to lie in after a few months, and this can have an impact on how tranquil your bedroom space feels.
Introduce a Calming and Relaxing Color Scheme
Giving your bedroom a new color scheme that is both tranquil and relaxing is important. This color scheme may feature muted colors, or it may feature earthy tones. A calming, relaxing and soothing color scheme will be welcoming and warming; it will not be jarring. To achieve the perfect color scheme for you, think about the colors that bring you peace and comfort. For example, do you find shades of blue relaxing and calming, or do you find these too cold? Would you prefer to use a yellow or cream color palette?
Real houseplants can add a calming and tranquil feel to your bedroom. Certain plants such as Monstera can be good for the air quality in your room. Other plants can help to relax you, and some can absorb excess moisture in the room (ideal if you have an en-suite). When you are looking at houseplants to add tranquility to your bedroom, look at those that are low maintenance. You do not want to be spending all your time worrying about how much light or water a plant is getting, as this will make your space feel anything but tranquil.
Soft Furnishings Are Key
Layers and soft furnishings are important in any tranquil space. Throws, cushions, pillows and even the drapes that you choose will have an impact on how a space feels and looks. A tranquil bedroom is going to feature cushions and throws that add comfort. It is going to introduce a variety of cushions and pillows (in all shapes and sizes) that add depth and texture to the bed and to the aesthetic of the room.
