With Valentines just a few days away, many of you may already have plans for your special someone. However, those who are not too keen on celebrating the day of hearts outside with other couples, staying at home can also be a great alternative. Whatever the case it might be for you, it is very likely for most mature couples to end their day in their very own bedrooms. Preparing for this part of the day is also ideal, especially if you want to cap the day with some intimacy.
So, how do you ready your bedroom for some Valentines’ day romance? Here are some of our tips:
1. Get some fresh sheets.
Re-decorating for just one day isn’t exactly practical, especially if you’re busy handling the household or a day job. What you can do instead, though, is deck your bed with some new linens. For many, red is a great choice for such occasion, so you can easily get into the Valentines’ mood without a fuss. Fresh sheets can also help you quickly re-invent the bed, so it can be a great way to feel like you’re on a romantic getaway with the comforts of your own home, which is a win-win for many.
2. Get the lighting right.
Lighting is essential to get into a romantic mood. Dim lights can really turn a space into something cozier and more relaxed, allowing couples to feel their privacy better, making it important to turn the lights down a little bit on V-day. To add some of that romantic lighting in your bedroom, you can skip your regular lights and just rely on your lamps, strings of fairy lights, or even candles. Just make sure to be careful in where to place them, though.
Nothing can be a bigger buzzkill than having the urge to get rid of that stack of old receipts sitting on top of the dresser. So, make sure to include cleaning up, even just a little bit, when prepping your bedroom for that post-Valentines’ Day date.
4. Prepare a romantic play list – may it be a compilation of your favorite love songs or a few romantic movies both of you can enjoy.
The right music or movie can really set or extend the romantic mood, so you might want to prepare for how you should cap the day with a romantic film or a sweet playlist.
5. Indulge your sense of smell as well.
Treating your sense of smell right can also do wonders for the success of your Valentines’ Day. There are several recommended scents for romantic moments that you can try, though experts suggest floral and woody scents for best results.
6. If you want to do it more traditionally, make sure you don’t forget the flowers and a bottle of champagne/wine.
These two are staples when it comes to V-Day, so if you want to do it the traditional way, do not forget to bring in some flowers and a bottle of wine/champagne to your bedroom.
7. Add a personal touch.
A little surprise like a sweet note or a special gift can really help make your Valentines’ Day a little bit more special, so why not look for a way to show your significant other how much you care? It may be extra cheesy, but no one will judge you – it’s V-Day after all!In the end, it’s not really about what your plans are or how your bedroom looks like that is important in celebrating Valentines’ Day. It’s actually the quality time you’ll be spending with your special someone, strengthening your bond and helping you create more memories and building your relationship stronger. As long as you’re comfortable with the one you love, you can say that you’ve had a great hearts’ day. These tips may add to the effect, though, helping you achieve a richer and grander celebration of this lovely holiday.
