Take a look at how to transform your bedroom from a place to sleep to a place to recoup with these tips and bedroom furniture suggestions.
Children are spending more time at home than ever, and when you also work from home or share your household with others it can be challenging to get a moment alone. It is important for parents to get that downtime so that they can continue to meet the needs of their children. As the old saying goes, “You can’t pour from an empty cup.”
Your bedroom can easily be your refuge, but you’ll probably want to redesign it and choose some new furniture to make it work well for you for that purpose. Take a look at how to transform your bedroom from a place to sleep to a place to recoup with these tips and bedroom furniture suggestions.
Bedroom furniture to transform your bedroom into the perfect hideaway
Luxurious beds with upholstered headboards
Luxury bedroom sets with upholstered headboards are the epitome of comfort when you want to lounge in bed. These headboards offer a nice tufted pillow-like comfort for you to rest your head or to lean back while reading and other lounging activities. You can also get upholstered headboards with tech features like built-in individual reading lights.
The media chest is a newcomer to bedroom furniture sets, but it is very important if you are going to be lounging in your bedroom. The media chest can be purchased to match the exact bedroom furniture that you decide upon, but they don’t look like a traditional media centre. Instead, they blend in with the rest of your bedroom furniture, looking every bit like another dresser or chest of drawers but for the television perched on top.
Create a cosy corner to chill alone or with a friend
If you know you will be escaping to your bedroom on a regular basis, especially if you will be doing so with your partner or a friend, a cosy corner is a great addition. You can find smaller bedroom sofas and loveseats that fit easily into most bedrooms. You can put the sofa at the end of your bed in place of a bedroom bench.
Alternatively, you could get an accent chair or two and set them up with an accent table to hold beverages and snacks. Of course, you want to arrange any such furniture so that you can see the media chest clearly if you opt for one.
Vanities aren’t just for teenage girls
A vanity table is not just something that you get as a teen. Vanities are great additions to a parent’s bedroom because they blend in with the rest of your bedroom furniture while giving you a surface that can be used in a number of ways.
The vanity can be used to prep in the mornings, or just a place to sit and do your evening beauty routines instead of standing in the bathroom. But vanities are good for more than just these traditional uses. Most vanities can also be used as a desk, which can be helpful if you need to work from home temporarily. You can also sit at them to do budgeting or handle other personal business out of ear-shot of the rest of the household.
Don’t forget to update your decor
Is your bedroom decor sparse? If so, you’re not alone. If you want your bedroom to be more of a cosy retreat and less of a utilitarian design, you should incorporate some calming and relaxing décor. Think about adding a plush area rug, or put thick rugs on either side of the bed for added comfort. Artwork that incorporates blues and yellows are calming and induces feelings of happiness, while natural textures and wall art depicting nature scenes are also a relaxing addition.
