We all want our bedrooms to be beautiful, but we want them to be comfortable too – right? For me there’s different things that make me feel comfortable, so I’ve got some tips to make your bedroom comfortable.
If you’re married I think considering what your spouse finds comfortable is important too. If you adore lots of florals, but he can’t stand them you might want to take it easy in the floral department for your bedroom…. since it’s his too.
Here’s the 5 Things that Make a Bedroom Comfortable for me:
1. A great mattress. Yep, a no brainer. You need to feel comfortable in your bed.
2. Wall color that makes you relaxed. Now this is totally an individual choice – but what colors put you at ease? For me I’m relaxed and comfortable at the beach. So our bedroom walls are a beautiful, calming blue.
3. Bedding I love! I love to change out our bedding. I’ve found the cheapest way to do this is with duvets. They are usually much cheaper. Like the one here I found for $40 with shams – score!
4. Lighting – have some smaller table lights on your nightstands. We also have a ceiling fan where the light can be dimmed. It’s amazing how lighting can affect your comfort level.
5. Smell. Do you ever catch a smell that takes you to a memory and instantly you have some emotion evoked from that smell? Find a candle, scent warmer, etc of a smell that brings you a comfort memory.
