How to Create a Cozy Bedroom

22 August 2022

Nothing is better after a long day than relaxing in bed and letting the day’s stress melt away.

If you find that your room isn’t as cozy and relaxing as you would like, there are some changes you can make to help increase the ambiance of your room so you can sleep better and feel more relaxed.

Here are a few ideas so you can begin your journey to your coziest bedroom yet.

Tips for creating a cozy bedroom

  • Use a canopy

If investing in a canopy bed is not in your budget, you can still achieve the cozy effect canopies offer. There are endless options for canopies online that hang from your ceiling and drape down to surround your bed like a hug. You can even use a curtain rod and curtains as a canopy.

Whatever you decide to do, adding a canopy to your bedroom is perfect for adding a feeling of comfort and making your room more inviting.

  • Create a reading nook

You don’t need much space to create a warm and inviting reading nook in your room. A corner will do. If space permits, you can use a comfy chair, a hammock, or some plushy pillows on the floor.

Having a cozy spot to read will have you rushing home to get lost in your favorite book.

  • Create ambiance with lighting

Lighting is vital to creating a cozy ambiance in your bedroom. You have so many options from lamps, dimming lights, candles, fairy lights, string lights (think Christmas lights), and even LED lights around the ceiling of your bedroom that can add whimsy to your room and make it feel magical.

  • Upgrade your bedding

There is no doubt that your bed is the focal point of your room. Giving your bedding an upgrade can look like a new comforter set with decorative pillows that bring you joy when you see them. Euro pillows are an excellent investment. Not only do they look luxurious they are also great for propping yourself up at the end of your day to read, watch tv, knit, or do whatever you like to do to unwind before going to sleep.

Look for bed sheets that have a thread count of at least 300. These sheets will feel lovely while sleeping since they are breathable and soft.

Layering blankets on your bed will help to give your bed some texture and elevate the aesthetic of your room. A weighted blanket might be something you want to purchase if you have trouble sleeping; it will help you keep warm and feel secure.

  • Make your room smell nice.

There is no denying that a cozy room smells lovely. Making sure your room has a pleasant scent when you enter it can help you relax and feel at home. Washing your bedding regularly is a must, vacuuming, laundering your curtains, keeping your dirty laundry in a closed laundry basket, and investing in some nice candles or a diffuser to keep the smell fresh.

A few great scents for a bedroom are Rose, White tea, Sweetgrass, Lavender, Citrus, Vanilla, and Cedar.

Nothing beats a great-smelling room.

  • Keep it clean

How often do you find your nightstand cluttered with dishes and your dresser full of items from the day you dropped and left there? These little piles of clutter and cups can make your room look sloppy and not very cozy at all.

Make it a habit to take cups, plates, or bowls with you and have a drawer or a catch-all plate for random items like jewelry, chapstick, phone charges, etc.

Keeping your room clean and tidy can help you relax faster at the end of the day and create a more inviting ambiance.

  • Add some greenery

Having plants in any room can make the room feel more natural and inviting. You don’t have to go overboard with plants in the bedroom unless that’s your thing, but one or two will help to bring a natural element to your space. If you’re lacking a green thumb, some very convincing fake plants are on the market these days. No watering is required, just a light dusting from time to time.

A few plants that help to create a cozy environment for sleeping and purify the air are English ivy, pothos, Chinese evergreen, snake plant, philodendron, cornstalk dracaena, spider plant, and peace lily.

Don’t forget a cute pot or hanging basket to match your décor.

  • Get yourself a headboard

If you don’t have a headboard for your bed, it’s about time you invest in one. A great headboard can elevate your bedroom and make it feel cozy and inviting. There are so many styles of headboards that you are sure to find something you love.

  • Fireplace

Is there anything cozier than a fireplace?

If space permits in your bedroom, adding a fireplace will automatically make your space feel homey and cozy. You don’t need to bring in a contractor to build a fireplace. You can buy a portable one, no construction necessary. Portable fireplaces come in various shapes, sizes, and colors so that you can customize one to your room’s décor.

Spending your evenings cuddly with the fireplace, a hot cup of tea, and a good book sounds very enticing.

  • Choose the right color palette

There’s no right or wrong color palette for a bedroom, but you don’t want to go too bold with the colors. Keeping the palette more neutral and calming is a good idea.

Some good choices are anything in the neutral family like white, beige, and grey, but if color is something you want, there are endless options of softer, more calming colors like pale blue, soft green, and soft pink, to name a few.

At the end of the day, it’s your space, and if you can relax in a boldly colored room, stay true to yourself and have fun with it.

Conclusion

Creating a cozy bedroom doesn’t have to be complicated. You can achieve a relaxing environment with a few changes to your décor or an upgrade here and there. Whatever enhancements you decide to make to your bedroom will be well worth it at the day’s end.
