5 Ways to Make Your Bedroom More Inviting


Do you ever watch movies and find yourself secretly jealous of people who read in bed or simply hang out in their bedroom? If your bedroom was a little cozier you might say goodbye to the sofa in the living room and hang out in the bedroom a little more often, too. A lot of people neglect this room simply because guests generally do not see it. This is quite unfortunate because this is valuable real estate. Expand the living space you love to hang out in by creating an environment in your bedroom that is so welcoming and comfortable that you never want to leave.

  • Thoughtful Color Palette - You may love the look of that red wall and black comfortable covered in dragons, but does it give you a cozy feeling? If it does, then great! If not, then it is time for a change. Now, if you are like many others you are saying "What color palette?" Some people neglect their bedroom so bad that they do not even have a color palette. There is a random comforter and white walls. No wonder the door gets closed when guests come over. Choose a couple primary colors and then add in a few accent ones.

  • Soft Textiles - Go ahead and splurge on your comforter and sheets. You will be glad you did. You may even want to buy a super soft throw blanket to lie across the bottom of your bed. This way, if you are just relaxing with a book or a movie you do not have to actually get under the covers, if you don't want to.

  • Ventless Fireplace - This is an essential, if you are trying to create a cozy space. There is nothing more welcoming than a warm fire. Just being in the presence of one is relaxing. You can buy a wall, tabletop, or freestanding ventless fireplace that burns bio ethanol. This is a clean-burning fuel source that does not create smoke or release toxins. When you are ready to go to bed just extinguish the flame.

  • Wall Fountain - If you think having a ventless fireplace creates the perfect ambiance then try having one that is also complemented by a water feature. The sound of cascading water will make your stress just disappear. Plus, it will help you fall asleep faster because your mind will be calmer.

  • Lighting - If you are going to really enjoy this space then you need to have great lighting. A simple overhead light that creates a glare just will not do, especially if you like to read in bed. Choose a glamorous pendant or chandelier and make sure you have a lamp or a wall sconce by the bed for reading.
