These eight ways to make your bedroom feel more grown-up will help you create a…
Do you ever stay in a top-end hotel, and just wish that you could have a dash of that level of luxury in your own bedroom? Well, you can! By taking the time to make some small changes to your sleeping area, you can have a bedroom that is indulgent, comfortable, and luxurious — three qualities that we would all love to have in the room where we sleep. In this blog, we’re going to look at some of the most effective ways to give your bedroom a touch of the Ritz.
Art on the Walls
In our opinion, not enough people make the most of having art in their home. It offers something that nothing else can, and it’s not as if it’s all that difficult to get. Indeed, the only real rule for buying art for your home is that it’s unique (rather than one of the mass-produced offerings from the big-box stores) and that you like it. Luxury isn’t just about comfort; it’s about living life well, and art is one of those things that allow us to live well. Don’t go overboard, but a well-hung, nice piece of art will provide a lovely focal point for the room.
You could dress up your bedroom with a few luxury touches, sure, but it’ll count for little if you have low-quality infrastructure in there. So take a look at upgrading your furniture. French style beds will always boast a luxury touch, as will vintage or antique wardrobes and chest of drawers. It’s best to go with a particular theme, and to buy each item of furniture with the other pieces in mind, so that you can create a cohesive look. However, if you have a modern bedroom, then a single vintage piece (such as a chair) can be a great decor trick.
Get the Lighting Right
Luxury hotels always get their lighting just right — it’s one of those subtle things that makes a huge difference. If you’re trying to give your bedroom a hotel-feel, then focus on your lighting. You’ll have a couple of options. One is to go big and grand, such as by having a chandelier or bold side lighting. The other is to go low and atmospheric.
Keep it Organised
There’s no mess in a luxury space! As well as incorporating lovely decor touches into your bedroom, be sure to add some smart storage solutions, so that you can comfortably put away clothes and other items that don’t need to be on display.
Pillows, Throws, and Warmth
Finally, if you’re trying to create a luxury room, then you have free license to go overboard when it comes to pillows, throws, and all-around warmth. As we mentioned earlier, luxury isn’t just about what’s convenient. Not everything has to be practical. You’re creating a space that makes you happy to be alive. So go big on the comfort factor — there’s no upper limit when it comes to how many pillows you want to have on your bed.
