Interior Design Tips

Turn Your Bedroom Into A Relaxing Retreat

Many homeowners are looking to renovate master bedrooms into a relaxing retreat to unwind at the end of the day. We tend to focus a lot on the rooms that are more public in our homes, like the kitchen and living room, and the bedroom can be left looking a bit bland. Here are some tips to turn your bedroom into a relaxing retreat! 

Unclutter: The first thing you should do is unclutter your space. Go through everything and get rid of anything you don’t need. 

Strategic storage: The best way to prevent clutter is by having enough storage space. Get nightstands with extra drawers, utilize under the bed storage space, or maybe consider a trunk at the foot of the bed. If you are remodeling your bedroom, your interior design team will make sure you have strategic storage throughout your bedroom and bathroom. 

Block out noise and light: Use window treatments to block out the light and noise. Choose treatments that complement and enhance your space. 

Add a sitting area: Having a dedicated space to curl up with a good book and cup of tea (or glass of wine, we don’t judge here!) can really up the cozy factor in your bedroom. 

Select a calming color palette: The color palette you choose can add to the calm and peaceful vibe of a spa-like bedroom. Ivory, Taupe, Black, Gray, and White are classic neutrals. Soft blues, Lavenders, Greens, Yellows, and Pinks are good for an elegant, peaceful feel. Dark Chocolate Brown, Bronze Tones, Black, Rich Gray, and Mossy Green can feel like a warm hug. 

Get smart with lighting: Utilize natural lighting and well placed light fixtures to make sure you’re getting enough light throughout the day. Smart home tech can conveniently be adjusted to match whatever mood you are trying to convey. 

Bring in nature: Adding more greenery indoors is a top trend for 2022. Place plants (real or faux) and other natural materials like bamboo or wood around your bedroom for calming, earthy vibes. 

Splurge on linens: If you’re looking for places to save and splurge, we recommend splurging on linens. Go for the soft and luxurious linens and comfy pillows to really make your room a relaxing space. 

While we wish we could go to the spa every day after work, sadly it’s not possible! Having a bedroom that can act like a relaxing sanctuary can really help with unwinding and de-stressing at the end of the day.
