Doesn’t it just feel amazing to finally relax in the comfort of your bedroom after a long and tiring day of work? Well, we wouldn’t want to trade that feeling for anything in the world. And if you fall in the same category, then you need to make sure that your bedroom is as comfortable as Queen Anne’s cozy bedchamber from the iconic period film The Favourite!
Having said that, considering how personal that space is for you, you would not want to sacrifice much on style either. After all, how often do we see people compromising on decor due to the constraints of size and budget in their bedrooms? Or, they go completely south and make the cardinal sin of choosing form over function, another definite no-no!
The key to creating the perfect bedroom is striking a balance between creating warm cuddly vibes while maintaining a clean and functional modern decor. Here are 10 tips for you to add warmth and comfort to your bedroom without making it look overly minimalistic or outdated.
Don’t you feel like just dropping everything you’re working on right now and curling up in this bedroom forever? The striped linens in this bedroom interior are guaranteed to increase the laidback quotient in the room. Not doing any favors to your short-term productivity, make sure not to enter the room if you have still got some work to do, LOL!
Low Ceiling Bedroom
Who does not have fond memories of sneaking up to the attic and reading Percy Jackson stories all afternoon? Low ceilings in bedrooms can revive those memories and ramp up the coziness at the same time. You can also grab some bonus points by using a four-poster bed that actually touches the low ceiling!
It does not get any more comfortable and cozier than a bed alongside a fireplace. This bedroom idea comes straight out of the Gryffindor Common Room from Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Castle.
Having said that, the neutral colors in the room keep it from being too traditional either. Various shades of black, gray, and white dominate the scene here, alongside some dry plants to bring in natural elements.
Add a Touch of Your Personality
Your bedroom might be the only place in the world that is completely private to you. Go ahead and add some personalized touches to it by using monogrammed pillowcases or having personal messages embroidered on the sheets. Make sure to keep the overall vibe comfy and fun to match other elements and patterns in the room.
A Reading Corner
With a super comfy bed and warm linens, even reading someone as exhilarating as Denis Lehane at night time can be a struggle. The next thing you know… the book lies somewhere chucked on the floor, and you are dreaming about teaming up with Kenzie and Gunnaro!
Well, nothing wrong with an adventurous bout of sleep every now and then, but simply having a cozy rocking chair alongside your bed can make things far more efficient and personal.
How would you like a soft gray carpet to gently wake up your feet in the morning while you are still stumbling around in a dreamy slumber? Surely, way better than a cold concrete floor that jolts your senses like an electric shock! Plus, the multiple windows in this bedroom with an excellent view are sure to up the cozy quotient while keeping a modern look.
Play Around With the Curtains
You might have already seen how sheer curtains can elevate the level of warmth by allowing natural light to pour into a bedroom. But you can also try something completely different with some full-length curtains to section off the bed and create a cozy canopy. Top off the St. Petersburg vibe oozing out of this room with some classic Chekhov during bedtime!
There is no better way to add some colors and life to a dull bedroom than using bold florals that bring texture and an edge to the room with their sweet patterns. The bold wall patterns in this room provide a welcome contrast against the traditional chandelier and a modern palette.
Lots of Wood
Still dreaming about living in a tree house like the Hardy Boys and indulging in some amateur sleuthing? Well, you could turn your house into a treehouse by using some wood cladding or lime oak panels alongside other wood accents and furnishings. Enjoy a sense of warmth and lots of intrigue at the same time with this woodsy haven!
A Four-Poster Bed
Feel like setting an ethereal atmosphere in your bedroom? Well, this four-poster bed with all-white bedding and majestic canopy curtains will provide a cozy personal setting for you to fulfill your Marie Antoinette regal fantasy. Also, the floor-to-ceiling windows alongside are just the right match for the overall mood of the bedroom.
