WHAT EVERY BEDROOM NEEDS
These simple items will help make your bedroom one of dreams!
1. THROW PILLOWS-HOW MANY TO USE WHEN THE BED IS MADE
Depending on the size of your bed it should be between 2 and 5. There should be enough that the look is finished and inviting but not so many that it takes you forever to find the bed.
2. SOMEWHERE TO SIT THAT IS NOT THE BED
A bench at the end of the bed is a good place if that is all that you have room for or a place to sit and read is the ultimate place. This will also give you somewhere to put your shoes on or even to place the decorative bedding you take off when you go to sleep.
3. A RUG TO STEP ONTO
We all love wood flooring but there is nothing worse than stepping onto a cold hard floor in the morning… If you already have a wall to wall carpeting then you can consider layering a more interesting rug on top of it or just put smaller rug by the bed.
4. A COMFORTABLE MATTRESS
Your mattress is your foundation…if it is not comfortable for you than no matter what you put in your room will not allow for a good sound sleep.
Keep the emotion out of your photos and artwork. That usually means no family photographs in this room (other rooms are fine). Calming photos and artwork is recommended.
6. DECORATIVE OBJECTS YOU LOVE
You do not need many of these but the ones you put in the room should make you smile.
7. SOME DRAMA
All bedrooms need some glamour. That could mean a sexy or cozy wall paint color, a beautiful chandelier or an oversized headboard. All you need is 1 or 2 glamourous touches.
8. NO TECH
Your bedroom should be your sanctuary/spa. No tech should be allowed if you want to fall asleep more quickly and want to get a peaceful night’s sleep.
