Lucky are those who find their bedrooms to be the sanctuary rejuvenating them from panic and stress plaguing their lives. However, it is not mere luck working their way; one has to put some effort in to make things work out the way they want. So, are you among the lucky ones? If not, would you like that? Here, I share 5 Simple and Easy Tips to Turn Your Bedroom into a Sanctuary, so simple and easy that anyone willing enough can follow them, to help you get the peace and serenity you deserve to delve into after dealing with the hardships of life.
A Bedroom Sanctuary
1 Be Natural
How often you really check the tags on items present in your bedroom, like blankets, sheets and pillow covers? How many of those tags read “All Natural”? If not many of them are made from natural fibres, you better look to get basic bedding sets of natural fibre. You can go a step ahead by getting natural fibre pillow and mattress covers, but it might turn out a little costly for you. For those who can afford, natural fibre rugs are also available. It is a good idea to replace plastic and polystyrene items in your bedroom with all natural stuff as your first step to turn it into a sanctuary.
2 Stop “electrifying” yourself in the bedroom
Though electronic appliances have a significant role to play in our lives, but you better exile them from your bedroom if you want a totally peaceful ambiance in there. It surely doesn’t mean stripping your bedroom off of all essential heating and lighting fixtures, but it definitely means getting rid of electronic accessories like television screens, computers, laptops and even mobile phones. In absence of seemingly harmless distractions like these, your chances of having a serene sleeping experience increase significantly.
3 Keep it clean
Furnishing and decorating alone can never serve you the desired results. You have to clean your bedroom often to make sure it really serves you as a true sanctuary. With a room furnished properly, keeping it clean becomes quite convenient, especially if you have one of those contemporary leather beds with storage. You can hide away so much stuff in that kind of convenient storage facility. Not only focus on the face value of the room, but deepen your cleaning spree and keep your bed linens clean and tidy; wash them at least once a weak.
4 Bring in the “real nature”
You will be amazed to see the peaceful and serene impact that a little greenery can make in your bedroom, making it a sanctuary for you. It not only contributes in enhancing the visual element of your bedroom, but it also contributes significantly in purifying its atmosphere. However, make sure you don’t overdo the job and keep the green element in proportion to the rest of the decor in the room. Much better is to place pots and plants across windows where they can get ample sunlight.
Remember, this is your bedroom we are talking about here, so it should look and feel so. You should furnish and decorate in a much personalised manner, with all the furnishing, accessories and art work speaking your mind, depicting your personal choices and inclinations. It shouldn’t look like the V.I.P suite of a hotel, well decorated but impersonal and without any warmth. You can showcase your personal memoirs and collectibles as art pieces instead of buying some new for the room.
It is right that you have never been into the domain of interior decor, but it surely doesn’t mean you can’t even set up a sanctuary of a bedroom for you. With these simple tips, you can achieve the peace of body and mind you need to confront the problems your life plans to set across you every single day.
