The bedroom should be the hub of the home. In order to have a good, productive day at work, you need a good night’s sleep, and as such, the bedroom should be a relaxing boudoir: a place you actively want to spend time, rather than somewhere you simply skulk off to after nearly passing out with tiredness on the sofa.
If you want to make your bedroom more appealing, then we’ve put together this blog post on three simple ways you can convert your bedroom into a relaxing boudoir.
Choosing a New Colour Scheme
Boring, bland beige may be great at making your bathroom and kitchen appear light and bright, but it really doesn’t have a place in the bedroom.
Remember, your bedroom walls are the first thing you see in the morning and the last thing that you see before you go to sleep, and due to this, you really should spend some time reinvigorating them and creating a new colour scheme.
This is an essential first step as, once you’ve selected your scheme, you’re able to pick out other changes and furnishings.
Getting the Lighting Right
To convert your bedroom into a sensual boudoir, you have to get the lighting right. A simple ‘big light’ system isn’t really enough, and you’ll need a range of lighting options to make the room more appealing and romantic.
Although a bright light has its place (especially for those very early mornings), dimmer switches, bed side lamps and wall mounted lights all have their place, and they mean that you can choose a lighting setting that suits the mood.
As well as letting the light in, however, you also need to keep it out at night. For this, you need good quality curtains, and this isn’t an area you should scrimp and save, as they can guarantee a good night’s sleep. Consult online retailers like Harry Corry for ready-made curtains, or get custom made ones if you’re feeling especially flush!
If the colour scheme and the lighting are right, then everything else should fall into place. There’s no need to change large furnishings such as beds and wardrobes as these can usually fit to any scheme.
However, if you’re not replacing these then you should buy additional furnishings to tie everything together and make the room coherent. Simple furnishings such as new bedding, cushions and wall art really can make a big difference and complete the theme.
So, there we have it, three simple ways that you can convert your bedroom into a sensual boudoir. Of course, this list is by no means extensive, but hopefully it has successfully whetted your appetite and got you keen to get started.
