How to turn your bedroom into a peaceful retreat this Christmas
Your bedroom should be a tranquil getaway, a place you can rest your head at the end of a long day in peace and somewhere you can leave your stresses at the door. However, at this time of year, our bedrooms can often feel neglected as we turn our attention towards transforming the rest of our homes into a comforting and inviting space to spend Christmas with friends and family. Ensuring a peaceful and rejuvenating atmosphere in our bedroom is a great way to guarantee a great night’s sleep. So this season, invest some time in turning your bedroom into a restful sanctuary where you can lay your head to rest in peace, allowing you to enjoy the season’s festivities.
Do you have a place in your room that has become the go-to area to throw your bag, coat, shoes and more? Don’t worry, you’re not alone! This is a great place to start on your journey to achieving a sleep sanctuary. Decluttering the space in your bedroom not only promotes relaxation, but by paring down the essentials in the room you can concentrate on investing in higher quality pieces of furniture. Think of it as quality over quantity! Also, no one wants to be tripping over clothes or standing on items as they try and navigate their way to bed! Keeping floors clear of clutter will not only reduce levels of stress when you enter your room, but you’ll be able to find things more quickly – which is ideal for this busy time of year.
Comfort is key
Decide what you really need in your bedroom and eliminate the rest. We think taking a look at your bed is the best place to start. The bed is, after all, the focal point of your bedroom and where you will be spending your time so invest in a well-made, high-quality design that will not only give you a great night’s sleep, but will look beautiful as well. You can explore our range of beautifully handcrafted beds which are suitable for any kind of bedroom size and style. Choose from our bed on legs options which create the illusion of more space in smaller rooms, ottoman bases to help create less clutter and divan storage drawer bases to help keep the pathway to your bed clear.
Choosing the right mattress will make a big difference in how you sleep at night – if you have the right mattress for your body type and preferences, you’re more likely to enjoy your surroundings! Aim for something with sufficient support and you’ll be off to a peaceful slumber in no time. Our range of Hypnos mattresses are what dreams are made of with luxurious layers of comfort and total body support and resilience. With a selection of firmness and support available, you can find the perfect one for you here.
De-cluttering your bedroom doesn’t mean you need to say goodbye to your luxurious comforts such as cushions and throws, just remember moderation is the best way to keep a sense of calm. Selected cushions can add personality and character to your room, as well as create a more welcoming area to relax in at the end of the day. Keeping accessories to a minimum will really help your quest for sleep, and there is something quite comforting about curling up with one of our velvet house scatter cushions!
The texture in your room isn’t all about what you add on top of your bed. Create instant warmth in your interiors this season and give your feet a treat by laying a sheepskin rug on the floor next to your bed. Our sheepskin rugs are made from 100% New Zealand wool and the luxurious, thick pile will give your toes a warming welcoming in the morning.
