If you own your home or are renting, there is still one thing that you’ll have in common; we all want to be sleeping in the bedroom of our dreams, right? Having a relaxing and peaceful haven to go to each night is the dream! Though having the whole house as you want it is important, it isn’t always possible when you live with other people. It can help sleep, as well as de-stress after a long and tiring day. So I think it is so important to make an effort to create the perfect place for you to sleep in. Here are some of the best things that you can do, to make sure that you can achieve it.

Start with the bed

This one is fairly obvious, isn’t it? But in order to get the best night’s sleep, we need to have the best bed. Due to the size of it too, it is most likely to be the most prominent thing in the room as well. There are a few factors to consider with the bed. First of all, the style that you go for is important. Do you go for a leather sleigh bed, or a metal framed more elegant looking bed? The latter can look more dainty and pretty while the former is more bold and boxy. So it all depends on what style you want your bedroom to be. If you like to have fairy lights strung around the room, then a metal frame bed would be the best option. Second, you need to think about your mattress. It should be just how you like it, so make sure that you try them in the shop. What I prefer will be different to what others prefer, so choose what is best for you.

Think about flooring

If you are on a budget, you might not want to replace all of the flooring. So look at what is there at the moment. If you have hardwood flooring, could it be updated with a rug, to make it all a little more cosy. If you wanted to replace your carpet so that it is super soft to walk on, then you could just replace it in your bedroom, rather than the whole house. Then it won’t end up costing too much, which is always a good thing. So why not look for some cheap carpet online to get you inspired?

Reading Nook

Every bedroom needs somewhere cosy to sit and read or to relax. So a little corner of the room to have as a reading nook is a great idea. If you have a bay window, then that is an obvious choice to choose. If not, you could get a beanbag or a big comfy armchair to have in the corner of your room. Add in a floor lamp and a warm throw, and then you’re pretty much set.


The devil is in the details, as they say. So make sure that you add plenty of cute details that you want to the room. It could be extra cushions, bookends, wall art or trinkets. Just make it as you want it and then your dream bedroom will be nearly there!
