How To Make Your Bedroom The Best It Can Be

The average person spends 33 years asleep. Some of us haven’t even been in existence for that long, so it seems like a crazy amount of time spent in bed, but what we can get from this statistic is that we should all have the best bedrooms possible. If you’re going to spend 33 whole years in there, then it’s important to get it right, and have the most comfortable, calming, and luxurious bedroom that you can. We’ve had a look for some of the best things that you can do, to make your room the perfect place for you to get your 40 winks.

Keep the walls a light color
The best thing that you can do to make your room seem like a huge open and airy space, is making sure that your walls are painted (or wallpapered) a light color. The worst thing that you can do is create a space that seems dark and miserable, so lighten up!

Use mirrors wisely
If you use mirrors wisely, you can create the illusion of your room being much bigger. There is a certain way to do this, by reflecting the light properly, and if you try out a few places you’ll see how this really works. There are a variety of different sizes and shapes so that you can utilize any space.

Keep a minimalist wardrobe
If you’re keeping clothes that you’ve had for years but never worn, donate them to charity! Don’t let them take up loads of room in your bedroom, when you could be helping others, and helping yourself, by getting rid of them. Pick out what you haven’t worn for 12 months, and give it away. You’ll feel great, we promise.

Create some great lighting
You can also use lighting to your advantage, and invest in something that will make your room look amazing at night. You can even get a fluorescent light diffuser, to make your bedroom look like it is open to the night sky. Yes, it literally displays clouds on your ceiling. No more counting sheep for us, thanks.


Declutter
There is nothing that can make a space look smaller, and less appealing, than loads of clutter. Keep your floor space clear, make sure that you clean and polish at least once a week (that’s right, no more eating your leftovers in bed), and don’t just keep a lot of things in your room that can collect dust. Seeing the floor is the goal here, guys.

Get that furniture up high
Ok, so this sounds weird, but the best way to make your bedroom seem as though it has loads of space is putting your furniture up on the walls. If you have bookshelves, change them into independent shelves that you can attach to the walls, and instead of free-standing lamps, get some that you can attach to the wall. Floorspace galore.

Let there be light!
If you don’t have a window in your bedroom, or your curtains are always closed, it can mess with your mental health. Make sure that you let some light in as much as you can, and avoid living in a bedroom that resembles a cave. It’s not good for you, and sunlight makes us all feel happier, right? Away with the curtains!

Wash your bedsheets regularly
Is there a better feeling than getting into bed after you’ve washed your bedsheets? Make sure that you keep your bed clean, so that you don’t invite any unwanted visitors into your home and you can come back to a lovely-smelling, clean bed. We think this is one of the best things in the world, and we don’t care if you disagree. Aah.

Invest in a throw and some pillows
Getting into bed should always be like jumping on a big cloud. Of course, if you actually jumped on a big cloud, it probably wouldn’t feel like you’re surrounded by throws and pillows, but this is what we’re going for here. Make your bed as comfortable (and warm, in the winter) as possible, and you’ll love coming back to your room.

So, there are many ways to make your bedroom the best that it can be; experiment and find the perfect arrangement for you! Make sure that you use light wisely, declutter and utilize the space in your room, and create the perfectly comfortable bed, so that you’ll always be thinking about coming back to it. Good luck, and enjoy catching those Zzz’s in your brand new abode and as always keep it Southern Y'all!
