6 Suggestions for Making Your Bedroom a Space of Tranquility

Mar 23, 2016



Bedrooms are one of the most important rooms in the home, as they nurture and provide relaxation. When we turn in for the night, here is where we are held and embraced.  We are restored mentally, emotionally and physically as we sleep.

Here are 6 things you can do to create a place of refuge in your bedroom from our friend and staging consultant, Jill Angelo.

  1. Keep clutter to a minimum; less is truly more when it comes to décor.

  2. Treat yourself to the best thread count sheets, pillows, blankets and bath linens you can afford.  Feel the luxury against your skin.

  3. Declare the room “electronics free” — no computers, smart phones or televisions. Electronics emit static electricity, causing restlessness.

  4. Set the stage for peaceful sleep in the evening by making sure your bed is made in the morning. Don’t snooze till the last moment. When you bound out of bed in a hurry,
    that energy remains for your return in evening.

  5. Keep a fresh plant or flowers in the room, especially in winter months when it’s too cold to open windows for fresh air. They are life force and elevate oxygen levels.

  6. Introduce soft lighting or candles to prepare the room for relaxation.
