Follow These 7 Steps to Make Your Bedroom a Restful Retreat
It’s always amazed me how many people I’ve met who leave their bedroom as the afterthought, or the “we’ll get to that someday” part of their home’s design. Maybe the thinking is that it’s not a common room of the home like the kitchen or living room, so they don’t put as much effort into making it amazing. But I think that the place where we wake up and start each day, and the place that brings us rest at the end of each day, should be awesome! I mean, hello! You should feel super restored and relaxed by your bedroom. And, dare I say, inspired!
If you’re looking around your bedroom like, “Okay Jas, you’re right. This room needs a refresh!” I got you. There are changes you can easily make to your bedroom to make it feel more welcoming, more beautiful, and more personal. You know, a place where you actually want to open your eyes in the morning!
Creating a pretty and restful bedroom is totally on the top of my mind right now because Brett, Hazel and I just moved into our new house. And with all the unpacking, me going back to work, and everything that comes with having a baby, I sure need and want our bedroom to be the comfiest room in the house. Even just doing one of these 7 tips to refresh your bedroom would make you smile, and any of these choices can fit within your specific budget. Maybe you go for all 7 upgrade categories, or maybe you just add new pillows and some aromatherapy or switch out your lamps. You’ll still notice a difference and your room will feel more special!
Pro Tip: Can’t change much? Switch out your dresser hardware and your lampshades. Shop your house and add a rug or throw pillow from another room to give them a new life in your bedroom! Even little, low-cost changes can have big impact.
