The most relaxing room in your home should always be the bedroom. Sure, the living room or den might also be pretty cozy, but the bedroom is where you sleep—there shouldn’t be a more relaxing spot. Despite this, there are still tons of people who have bedrooms that look like absolute chaos. If you feel like we just described your room, you’ll want to keep reading our list of tips for creating a relaxing and sustainable bedroom space.
Keep Your Room Clean
If your room is the chaotic mess we just mentioned, we feel like it’s safe to assume that it is full of clutter and junk. Most people have these types of rooms because they never clean them up. Laundry piles up, trash overflows, and beds never get made. The first step to a relaxing room is cleaning all of that up. If it still feels a bit messy after you’ve cleaned everything, you might simply have too many items cluttering your shelves, so remove some of those as well.
The tricky part is sustaining this afterward. Cleaning a room is easy—keeping it clean is not. However, as long as you remain proactive, you should be able to keep it in a relatively calm state.
Brighten Up Your Walls
Once that’s all taken care of, it’s time to enhance the relaxation value of your room. One of the most effective ways to do that is by painting your walls. Most people recommend going with blue to give your room a relaxing tone. However, blue can be a bit boring in our opinion.
That’s why we say that you should go with any color you want as long as it’s a lighter tone. Dark and bright colors can be overwhelming, whereas light ones have a certain calming aura to them.
Change Out Your Sheets
What good is a relaxing-looking room if your bed is super uncomfortable? That’s why this is the next focus in our list of tips for creating a relaxing and sustainable bedroom space. We know that buying a new bed might not be within the budget, so we are going to suggest that you get some comfier sheets. Our eucalyptus bedding sets, in particular, are an excellent choice for this. They exude comfort and come in many calming colors.
Remove Any Stressors
In the end, none of these changes are sustainable if you have certain objects in your room that stress you out. It could be something simple like an ugly painting or a breakable vase that’s always about to fall over. However, in most cases, it’s something bigger, like a desk.
With more and more people working from home, the number of makeshift offices has gone up. Many people put these in their rooms since they have nowhere better to put them. We are here to tell you that you should move your desk and home office elsewhere. Every time you walk into your room and see your desk, your brain will subconsciously remind you of the stresses of work. If you want your room to be relaxing, you’ll need to move your desk somewhere else.
