It is an exhilarating feeling when you can spend long nights, and lazy mornings, in your bed, especially in cold temperatures. Unfortunately, this can be a big problem on Monday mornings, but it balances out once you consider the luxurious feeling you get from hiding within the covers during chilly evenings.
However, what do you do when your bedroom, and bed, is not beckoning you as temperatures are dropping? Below are a few ideas that will help you add interesting elements to your bedroom, and transform it into the coziest room in the house.
Beside Your Bed
Improve your bedroom aesthetics by introducing warm and soft elements around your bed. For instance, adding a plush, soft rug that runs under your bed to either side ensures your toes step into something welcoming. In fact, introducing rugs makes it easier for you to get up in the morning while adding a trendy touch to your room.
The key to creating a cozy area is ambiance, and for that to happen, you need to consider lighting. For starters, remove bright white lighting fixtures and swap them for warm, soft bulbs. Next, add a lamp next to your bed so that you can turn it on or off without moving back the covers.
The process of creating a cozy bedroom space also includes looking at the bed. While lightweight blankets are ideal for warmer months, make sure you have plush, layered, and textured bedding for the colder months. If you already love the look of your comforter, you can make your bed even cozier by throwing an electric blanket under it for cold nights.
In addition to your comforter and throw pillow, extra embellishments can transform your space so much more. For example, discover sleep like never before with a customizable mattress as your bed’s base. Remember to include cotton sheets in winter and linen sheets in summer to make the bed even more inviting.
In addition, make it a habit to make the bed every morning before you leave. A made up bed helps make space appear less chaotic, hence a clear mind in the morning. Once you have smoothed things and set everything where it should be in the bedroom, the room transforms into a sanctuary.
Behind Your Bed
As you look into transforming your bedroom, do not forget to consider the space behind the bed. The frame helps bring out the best elements of a painting, and the area that is behind your bed to make it shine. One of the most defining features of any bed is its headboard.
Metal headboards trap cold, while fabric ones introduce a layer of softness to your bed and space. Fortunately, you have the option of creating your own upholstered hardboard. If you prefer a temporary solution, you can always throw a colorful plush blanket over the headboard for easy blending with your new cozy bed.
To make your bed pop, and introduce more aesthetics to your bedroom, consider creating an accent wall behind the bed. An accent wall works for all seasons. To make the bedroom feel snug, consider going for a dark color, like black, behind your bed for an intimate feel.
As you can see, seriously transforming your bedroom from a place where you get some shuteye to the coziest room to chill in at night and weekend mornings means introducing a few elements. Commit yourself to these changes, grab a good book and a cup of something warm, and you’re ready to make the most out of your space.
