Do you dream of creating your own oasis, where you can unwind and relax at the end of the day before getting a peaceful nights’ sleep? Creating a calming master bedroom is easier than you might think. Here are a few tips for turning your master bedroom into a peaceful oasis.
Choose Soothing Colors
Choose your color scheme for your master bedroom wisely. Colors affect our mood and set the vibe of the room. Cool hues are known to be the most soothing and effective at reducing stress and promoting feelings of content. These shades include lavenders, greens, blues, and greys. Choose colors you love that will help you feel most relaxed in your master bedroom.
Add Cozy Seating
An inviting chair strategically placed in the master bedroom will help complete the look and feel of the room. Create an area where you can relax, read a book, or sip your morning coffee outside of your bed. Place an overstuffed chair and ottoman in the corner of the room with a soft pillow and luxurious blanket and it will be hard to resist spending some time unwinding there. Many of Rockford Homes’ floor plans allow extra space for a seating area in the master suite.
Skip the Electronics
Experts recommend minimizing your use of electronics before sleep. Keep them out of the bedroom or hidden to help reduce temptation to watch tv or check social media before bed. Make your bed a work-free zone with no laptops allowed.
Studies show that clutter increases levels of stress and anxiety. A master bedroom oasis should be clutter-free. Fold and put clothes away. Use a closed, decorative hamper for dirty clothes to keep them out of sight. Take unnecessary items out of the master bedroom. Say no to kids’ toys, paperwork, and other items that will distract you from sleeping.
Splurge on Comfortable Bedding and Linens
The most important piece in your master bedroom is the bed! Choose a comfortable, supportive mattress to help you get the best sleep possible. Complete your bed with quality linens that you love crawling into at night. Nothing says luxury like a fluffy duvet waiting for you to curl up in at the end of the day.
Make Your Bed Every Morning
Give your bedroom a fresh start every morning by making the bed. Not only does this help keep your room looking orderly, but many claim making the bed every day leads to a happier and more successful life.
Create Ambiance with Light
Lighting can help create a calming atmosphere but also think practically about the type of lighting you will need in the room. Tableside lamps are great for turning on and off easily from the bed. They also are great for creating an ambiance when the overhead light is not in use. Dimmers are perfect for the bedroom ceiling light. This is an easy way to be able to instantly get the right amount of light in the room. There are also many lights specifically designed to be calming. Try adding something similar to these into your decor for an extra calming effect.
Perfume the Air with a Soothing Scent
Add a light, soothing scent to your room to promote relaxation and sleep. Scents like lavender, jasmine, vanilla, and rose are great choices for the bedroom. Fresh cut flowers, candles, and diffusers are popular choices for adding the right amount of scent to your room.
Try a Sound Machine
Complete your personal oasis by adding a sound machine. Not only does this help drown out unwanted sounds with soothing sounds such as a babbling brook or ocean waves, but certain sounds such as white and pink noise are thought to actually help you sleep more deeply.
In today’s hectic lifestyle, many of us are overworked, over-stressed, and greatly in need of a place where we can decompress and recharge for the next day. The master bedroom is the perfect place for creating this escape. Adding just a few details can transform your ordinary master bedroom into your peaceful oasis.
