Every bedroom should be a comfortable place that is conducive to relaxation and enjoyment, not just a space that you retreat to when it’s time to get some shut-eye. Hopefully, there’s already a bed in your bedroom, which covers the first and most important step. That is, unless you’re one of those people who extols the alleged benefits of sleeping on the floor, in which case, more power to you. Regardless of your sleeping preferences, there are certain things that can be done in every bedroom to make the space more comfortable. Start with the following four tips and you’ll be on your way to having a bedroom that you won’t want to leave:
1. Go Cushion Crazy
The word “cushion” is practically synonymous with comfort. Adding more throw pillows to the bed and/or love seat can be a great way to provide flexible support for all of your sitting and slouching needs. Want to sit up and watch TV in bed? Throw some cushions behind you and you’re good to go. Having lower back problems? Sleep with a cushion between your legs for relief. Plus, online shops like Threel offer plenty of options to choose from, so you should have no problem fitting your new cushion collection to the room’s current design.
2. Declutter Floor Space
Clutter is one of the most common comfort crushers in existence. Even with the softest and most pleasurable furniture, when there’s not enough room to move around, the space can feel cramped and uncomfortable. Try positioning furniture against the walls, downsize to smaller pieces, mount TVs and book shelves or have them built into the wall, and look for other ways to make your room more easily navigable.
3. Improve Air Flow and Temperature Control
Nobody likes the muggy and stuffy feeling that you get from being stuck in a room with inadequate air circulation. When it comes to enhancing comfort, sufficient environmental control and a perpetual breeze can work wonders. Consider installing a wall unit air conditioning system and maybe even a few fans here and there. Likewise, during the colder months it would be wise to have a small space heater handy to keep the room warm without having to rely on central heating.
4. Upgrade Your Bed and/or Bedding
Finally, the most effective way to make your bedroom more comfortable is to simply upgrade your bed. Look for pillow tops and models that use memory foam, as well as thicker bedding sets that are packed with plenty of cushioning. Consider 3D bedding designs and mattress toppers as well, and be sure to take your time comparing linen materials and fabrics before making a decision.
Don’t Forget the Aesthetics
Comfort is influenced not only by what we feel but also by what we see. Thus, once you’ve taken steps to optimise your bedroom’s furniture, accessories, and environmental control, a final measure to take would be to add some aesthetic appeal in the form of plants, posters, paintings, rugs, pottery, lighting, and any other artistic touches you can think of.
