First things first, a bedroom that promotes rest is a bedroom that’s neat. A simple way to make your space feel relaxing is by getting rid of clutter. Remove unnecessary nightstand hodgepodge and clean out your closet so that you’re more likely to put your clothes away. After all, a tidy room is a restful room.

We love a bedroom that has a soft and comfortable sense. One way to add a little softness to your room, outside of bedding, is by incorporating an end-of-the-bed bench or a corner chair. A fabric bench can create a more complete look while a chair produces a perfect reading nook!

Is there anything better than soft, clean sheets? If you’re in need of new sheets, we suggest between 400 and 700 thread count. For those on a budget check out Amazon and even Target for good sheets that are well priced.

Hardwood floors are great, but when your feet hit the floor in the morning, the chill can be a shocker. Adding a rug beneath the bed is a great way to combat cold floorboards and absorb sound for a more peaceful environment. Plus, a rug can make a room feel finished which is a plus if your space is feeling a little too simple.

Finally, for those who love color, a bold headboard might be the way to go. A radiant fabric can pack a punch of pigment, but keep the rest of the room simple and neutral to avoid clashing. This is a great way to bring some fun into your design!

Use these simple tips to create a bedroom retreat you can’t wait to get home to! And, if you need a little help getting there, we’re always here for ya. Thanks for reading!
