Turning Your Bedroom Into A Luxurious Retreat
By Priscilla Du Preez
...4 Ways To Do It Without Breaking The Bank
Are you getting tired of how dull your bedroom looks?
Do you find yourself daydreaming of what it would be like to have a super luxurious bedroom?
If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you need to know that giving yourself the Royal Treatment is easier than you think.
We spend a lot of time in that room, whether to sleep, exercise, meditate, read, etc, so be sure it fits your lifestyle. Here are some ideas.
Decorate Your Nightstand
What once was a cute nightstand has now become a collection of random items like lotion, papers, and books. You might even find yourself leaving half-drunk glasses of water and empty wrappers on top of everything else.
Clear up space by removing these unnecessary items and replace them with some proper decor.
The nightstand decor can include some of these items:
- A reading lamp
- An alarm clock
- A box for your journals
- A refillable bottle of water
- Body lotion
- A vase with flowers
Use your nightstand for things that up to the comfort level in your bedroom. Choose only the things you on hand and nearly store the rest out of sight.
Add Light Fixtures
Nothing says luxury more than a well-designed lighting.
Chandeliers may sound a bit exorbitant, but there are smaller versions that are less expensive. When choosing a chandelier, remember to pick one that fits the style of the room you’re going for.
Below is a list of the types of chandeliers you can choose from:
- Candles with shades - This chandelier has four arms that hold candles with some shading.
- Beaded - Beaded chandeliers can be made from wood beads, shell beads or glass beads.
- Caged - One of the more unique designs that resemble a spherical metal cage with the light in the center. A few styles of the center can be either candle, crystal or shading.
- Glass - This interesting chandelier is entirely made of glass and can come with or without arms.
- Crystal - The crystal chandelier adds elegance to your room with either the romantic style or contemporary style.
It’s worth noting that a few of these options can be a little bit on the expensive side, but it should be alright if this is the only thing you splurge on.
And don’t forget to also add some task lighting (for things like applying makeup) as well as accent (mood) lighting, such as dimmers and candles.
Add To The Aesthetic
You may be wondering “How can I further add to the aesthetic of my new room?”
That’s easy. Focus on items that make a statement such as a velvet armchair, a dark bed frame and even a dresser that’s gilded. Don’t fill up your room with too much furniture; let each piece stand out on its own.
Get The Right Mattress
Whether it’s to get your nightly ZZZs or to plop down for a quick nap, you deserve to wake up refreshed, pain-free and ready to tackle just about anything.
Studies show that most of us are sleeping on mattresses that are old, full of dust mites, and not conducive to proper rest. Change that by opting for a new mattress.
PangeaBed mattresses and pillows are antimicrobial, hypoallergenic and copper-infused to promote a good night’s sleep and give optimum support.
With these tips in mind, you’re ready to treat yourself the luxury bedroom you’ve always dreamed of and that’s not even the best part. The best part is that all of this is that you won’t overcharge your credit card!
