Of all the rooms in your house, your bedroom is the one place that should be your sanctuary. It should be the room that you go to, to relax, unwind and recharge your batteries for the next day. However, to be a tranquil and calm space, it needs to be designed in a way that promotes relaxation.

The key to doing that is creating a space that has both relaxing and luxurious vibes. You should always try to add a little luxury to your bedroom.

  1. Opt for a soothing colour scheme

Hotel rooms are always decorated in calm, soothing colours. That’s because tranquil shades promote relaxation, and with that comes the feeling of luxury. If you want to give your boudoir a glamorous feel, pastel blues and mint greens are the perfect shades.

It’s up to your whether you hire a decorator to do the painting for you – I prefer going down the DIY route myself. The only downside to doing your own decorating is how long it can take. However, you can speed the process up by using a spray-painting machine, like the Paint Zoom. These have had some great reviews – you can read honest Paint Zoom reviews online, so make sure to check these out.

  1. Incorporate lots of sources of light

The lighting that your bedroom has can make all the difference to the look and feel of the space. If you want to create a calming and luxurious space, harsh, overhead lighting is a big no-no.

Lighting that casts an even glow over the space is crucial for a relaxing bedroom. The best way to achieve this look is by investing in a dimmer switch for overhead lighting, as well as a few table lamps.

  1. Make your bed the focus

In a bedroom, the bed should always be the main focal point. This doesn’t necessarily mean investing in a new bed, as you can make your bed stand out with accessories.

However, if you can afford to replace your bed with a new design, that’s great. As you can pick a style that works well in your room, and makes a fabulous focal point. If you want a bed design that stands out, opt for something with a large headboard – these are great for adding style to any space.

  1. Comfort is key

To design a space that is as luxurious as it is relaxing, focusing on comfort is important. You can’t have a glamorous space that isn’t comfortable and cosy – it just doesn’t work. Invest in plush bedding, high thread count sheets, and super soft pillows, the more comfortable you can make the room, the better.

As well as making the bed comfy, think about the rest of the space. If you have any chairs, top them with cosy pillows and throws, or add a faux fur rug to the floor. There are so many simple ways that you can make your bedroom more comfortable, all you have to do is great creative.
