The Bedrooms we Daydream About Spending the Night In

While we love our bedrooms dearly, it wouldn’t hurt to try out other cozy-looking beds from time to time. Besides, as experts say, sleeping in a different bed can help reinvigorate your sleep hygiene which means that it’s a good thing to sleep somewhere else on some occasions as well.

As it’s also summer, we are slightly struggling with wanderlust as we’re stuck in the city with its unbearable heat and traffic. It wouldn’t really hurt to daydream about marvelous bedrooms that we’d love to spend a few nights in, right?

If we can take a pick of where we’d sleep tonight, here are a few that we’ll love to be in.

Planning to revamp your cozy space by the new year? We’ve got some of the best ideas that might just tickle your fancy. Check them out below!

Ok, so let’s start off with an amazing ceiling art made by Crispin Young Wilson for a young boy who’s struggling to sleep on his own in his first bedroom. The actual bedroom isn’t something to write home about, but the ceiling art will definitely help you relax. Especially if you love sleeping under the stars, this might just give you the relaxation you need every time you go to bed.

The best part about this work of art is it’s completely invisible when the lights are on! It makes the whole thing extra magical and easy to whip up in any kind of bedroom.

2. Use “scraps” as decor.

There may not be a lot of these intricately detailed discarded façades laying around, but if you’re lucky to find one, the bedroom is an excellent place to put it on display.

3. Let nature take its course.

We love some quick and unusual ways to update the bedroom, so we’re throwing in adding some plants into your bedroom in this list. They can really change up the look of your space and make it feel more relaxing. Opt for plants that can clean the air, as well as varieties that don’t require too much sunlight, so they won’t wither and die in a few days.

4. Move your bed near the window.

If your bedroom has a massive window and a nice view, why not incorporate the feature to your interiors? Use the great view to decorate your space by ditching the curtains (okay, you can still use them for privacy, but it’s best to keep them drawn open) and enjoying the marvelous sight from you bed.

5. Give your walls a fresh treatment.

Covering your walls with a fresh coat of paint, a new wallpaper, or an entirely different treatment is another way to refresh your bedroom without doing anything major. You can get this done in a weekend, so it’s definitely worth trying out if you want a new look for your cozy space by the new year.

Give any of these five a go and you’ll surely enjoy a bedroom that looks fresh in no time. If you want it to really want it to feel different, grabbing a new Salem Bed also wouldn’t hurt.

Personalize Your Bed for a Good Night’s Sleep

You might already be tired of hearing this from us, but because it’s true, we won’t get tired of saying that your bed is a huge factor in getting a good night’s sleep. Personalizing it is essential to get the most amount of comfort that you need to get great zzz’s. Doing this may sound pretty simple, but with all of the options available in the market today, choosing the right products can be a challenge.

To help you personalize your bed, here are some tips that you should keep in mind:

If you’re replacing your old mattress with a new one, make sure to try out the very product you’re planning to buy.

A lot of us tend to like ordering stuff online as it’s a lot easier to just click on the items you wish to purchase than actually go to a store. While you can already buy mattresses online, it’s still best to actually visit a store and try the mattresses out. We cannot stress this point enough: try out the mattresses out. This way, you can get the feel of the mattress before purchasing it.

Mattresses are made in different ways using a wide range of various materials so they definitely don’t feel alike at all. Not all mattresses will feel comfortable for you as well, so you need to look for one that allows your body to relax and provides ample support to your body’s curves and contours. You won’t be able to do that by just clicking on a product that seems nice on your screen, so, please, do yourself a favor and actually visit a mattress store before you make a decision.

Choose the right pillow for your sleeping style.

Pillows are just as important as picking the right mattress to buy but people always neglect getting a good pillow for their bed. Some just picks out the first thing they come across with, without too much thought.

As pillows help keep your spine properly aligned while you lay in bed, it’s an essential addition to your sleeping environment. You need one with a good lift but not too high to put strain on the muscles in your neck.

The problem with buying a pillow is that it’s hard to test them out in stores. Lots of pillows sold locally are vacuum-sealed so you don’t really know if it’s just the right amount of fluffiness or not. Make sure to ask if there’s a sample pillow so you can try to get its feel. You might also be able to stand flat against a wall and place a pillow behind your head just so you can get the feel and height of the pillow. It can be tricky, but if you want a good pillow, it’s something worth doing.

Be picky when it comes to sheets and blankets.

No one wants to use a scratchy bed sheet or blanket, so make sure to really feel the material of the sheets and blankets that you want to buy. Don’t purchase anything that feels rough and think that it might soften up after a few washes, because it’ll be a total waste if it didn’t. Go for something that already feels nice and cozy as soon as you touch it, so you’re guaranteed that you’ll get a nice sheet to sleep in.

Create a cooler bedroom.

A cool bedroom will let you drift off to sleep easily as the body needs a drop of temperature to let you doze off. If you can’t afford having an air conditioning unit yet, you can always find ways to improve the air circulation in your bedroom by strategically placing fans and opening windows.

Make sure that you’re perfectly comfortable.

Lastly, a bed is not personalized enough if you’re not comfortable in it. Make sure that you are perfectly cozy in your bed, so you can easily welcome sleep every time you climb in it.

Easy Tricks to Update Your Bedroom in a Jiffy

A lot of people procrastinate in redecorating their bedrooms because they think that it takes a lot of work to pull off. What they don’t know is that there are actually perfectly simple tricks to change the look of your space in a jiffy.

Don’t believe us? Here are some examples:

1. Create a slipcover for your headboard. This will easily transform the look of your space without having to do or spend much. As headboards take a substantial amount of space, the new fabric, color, or texture will surely give your bedroom a different feel.

2. Get some new pillowcases. Pillowcases are inexpensive items that can really spruce up your bed and even the entire room. Choose a pair or two that are bold and make a statement so they’ll stand out better.

3. Re-arrange. Nothing beats re-arranging when it comes to low-cost redecorating. It will take a lot out of your energy, but once you find the right place for your furniture, you can be sure that it’s all worth it.

4. Put up some tapestry. Easily available, washable, and removable, tapestries can be the best wall decors ever.

5. Let go of some furniture. Are there pieces of furniture you don’t need in the bedroom anymore? Get rid of them. This will easily open up space and make the room look less cluttered and crowded, creating a new feel for the area.

6. Find more ways to utilize your walls. It’s very likely that your walls are currently empty or barely holding anything. Create shelves, install some lighting, hang art to make use of them. This will definitely transform the look of your bedroom and create more storage for your bedroom.

7. Get rid of junk. Empty boxes lying around waiting to be reused for years? Old knick knacks scattered because you’re too sentimental? Get rid of them. It may require a lot from you to actually purge your belongings, but, believe us, you’ll feel better after.

8. Add a potted plant or two. Having some greens inside the bedroom have lots of benefits, including the fact that it can spruce up any space they are in.

9. Get a rug. Rugs not only add some charm to a bedroom with their patterns, colors, and textures but they also actually make the space feel cozier as they add some extra softness.

10. Clean up. Sometimes your room doesn’t really require any sprucing up, it’s just that it is completely messy that you can’t appreciate it anymore. Take time to clean and get re-acquainted with your beloved bedroom again.

The best thing about these tips is that they’re so easy. Try some this weekend and enjoy a fresh looking bedroom in no time.

DIY Bedrooms for a Studio Unit: Dividers and Screens

DIY BEDROOM BED SCREEN BANNER

In continuation of this week’s series, we’ve rounded up more inspiring interiors that can help you out in solving your lack of bedroom issue in your studio unit. Previously, we’ve shown you how curtains could help create a private area in your cozy apartment, and today, we’re sharing another great option for your home.

If you don’t want to install anything in your rental or unit, a screen is a great option. It can surely define a space without a fuss, without requiring much else. The only downside is it can be knocked over easily, depending on the design of your screen.

For those who are a bit handier and could actually do some work in their unit without having to call their landlord for permission, installing a divider can also be considered. A more permanent option that won’t require a lot of effort to pull off, dividers will easily delineate an area from another.

While weighing your options, check out our list that could easily inspire you below.

Aside from creating a specific sleeping space within a studio unit, a screen can also give your small home an elegant boudoir feel. However, they can also take some extra space, which can be a problem if your home’s square footage is very limited.

Dividers, on the other hand, can add a modern touch to your space, no matter what design or style. It may need some drilling and carpentry skills, though.

Again, creating a sort-of bedroom inside a studio unit doesn’t have to be a challenge. Just make sure to assess your pros and cons, as adding something extra in a small space can turn south if done incorrectly.

If these still don’t work for you, stay tuned for more ideas how you can create a bedroom of sorts in your studio unit.
