Is it time to breathe some fresh life into your bedroom? Talk with your partner and plan to work together to create a calming sanctuary that you both feel comfortable in.
Some tips to transform your bedroom into a space you both can live with are:
Collaborate to create mood. Don't go it alone; work with your significant other to design and decorate a space that is comfortable and calming to both of you. This includes making joint-decisions on color, furnishings, and accents. Try to stay neutral and keep things calm and inviting, while also allowing your personalities to show through!
Make the most of your lighting. The right lighting is important in a bedroom. After all, you want to have illumination for the activities that you enjoy but also dimness to unwind and rest. Invest in dimmer switches for your ambient light fixture, and invest in small task lamps near both sides of the bed for reading.
Focus on your bed. Make your bed something special by investing in high-quality linens and bedding. Look for organic fabrics like cotton or bamboo that are soft as butter while being easy to maintain. If your mattress is older than seven years old, it is time to replace it. This ensures a restful sleep surface that will also provide much-needed support while you rest.
Create a sense of calm by removing clutter. Your bedroom should be a relaxing and tranquil space, which means it is no place for clutter or excess storage! Get rid of the visual distractions, clutter, and knick-knacks that could be interfering with your ch'i and causing you stress when you want to rest.
Use these tips to come to an agreement regarding the perfect bedroom for both of you. Clean out your space to create a blank-slate from which to thoughtfully plan and design a relaxing room that you both can live with.
