If your bathroom is your at-home spa, your bedroom is your haven, your sanctuary – the place you go to unwind and become renewed. Sleep is something we all need to function in this world and getting a good night’s sleep is an important part of your day. Bedrooms need to be soothing so monochromatic color palettes are often used to provide that atmosphere. Neutral tones are a great canvas for bedroom accessories and easy splashes of color.
Your bed is, of course, the most important piece of furniture in the bedroom. But the choice of what kind of bed to get is dependent upon your particular needs and tastes. Whether your mattress is soft or firm, whether you sleep on a futon or in a four-poster, your bed must be inviting. The addition of lots of fluffy pillows, throws, and cozy blankets, adds to your bed’s invitation to get in it.
It is so important that your bedroom has no distraction, nothing that can disturb your mind and sleep rhythm. Many people put televisions in their bedrooms for late night viewing, but a minimum of electronics is often advised by sleep experts. Also a dark room is in keeping with your evening circadian rhythm, so be sure to turn that television off before retiring. Keep your computer in your office. Your bedroom can be formal or casual and still provide the peaceful quality you need for a sound night’s sleep. The 9 bedrooms featured below are all illustrations of the comfy bedroom. Even the unique hanging bed is an example of an inviting piece of furniture.
