5 Easy Ways to Turn Your Space Into a Luxury Bedroom
A bedroom is a private sanctuary, a place for decompression, a space where you can be you. There’s nothing better than curling up in your bed after a long day and feeling that sense of calm wash over you. That being said, change can be a good thing, and a luxury bedroom is an idea that everyone can get behind. Whether you’re remodeling one of your guest bedrooms or want to spruce up your own sleep spot, a luxury bedroom can make going to sleep that much more enjoyable.
But creating that luxury can feel like a chore. You acquire clutter over the years; your linens don’t match; maybe you’re still using the comforter you’ve had since college. It feels more like something out of a deranged kids movie than a sanctuary. Well, that’s about to change. With our simple tips, you can have the luxury bedroom of your dreams… literally.
Think About Your Space and Accentuate What’s Beautiful
First, figure out the features you love about your bedroom. Do you have high ceilings? Tall windows? A cozy nook ideal for reading? Emphasize those things to create a luxurious feel. Place your bed so that you can enjoy the benefits of the space, and arrange other furniture and room accessories to highlight that feature.
Choose a Serene Color Palette and Stick With It
Unless you’re an interior designer, you may not be thinking about how a room jives together when you’re purchasing individual pieces. Maybe the paint came one year, the bed another, with drapes that have been there since the Eisenhower administration. As a result, you have a hodge-podge look, instead of the luxury bedroom you want.
Try picking colors that go with everything and also work year-round, like neutral or cream tones. Or go bolder with coffee tones or hues of blue, which are known for relaxation. Then figure out if your existing pieces fit into that color scheme. If it doesn’t flow, it’s got to go. We’re not saying you have to replace every piece of furniture right away to create your luxury bedroom, but make sure to think about how new purchases fit within the framework of what you’ve already got. That way you’ll always be building towards something you’ll love. Creating a color palette is a quick and easy way to inject a little style into your space and give you the luxury bedroom you’ve always wanted.
Choose the Right Lighting and Follow the Window Treatment Formula
It doesn’t matter how nice your color palette is if it’s under super harsh lighting. Try low-watt bulbs for use in the bedroom (think 40 watts or lower) to keep soft lighting that will beckon you into your luxury bedroom and set a mellow mood. Try to avoid overhead lighting; it’s better if your light can come from floor and desk lamps. This will give you that luxury bedroom feel you’re going for.
Similarly, think about light coming in from windows. If you want to block light for better sleep, follow this simple formula: Always combine a lightweight sheet curtain with a blackout curtain. Having both allows for flexibility. You can let in some light during the day and have the blackout curtain for extra light filtering and privacy when you need it. For those with allergies, choose materials that are less likely to collect dust to help control indoor allergens.
Try Triple Sheeting (the Luxury Hotel Trick That Works)
Triple sheeting is a technique that high-end hotels use to add a crisp and clean feel to their beds. Basically, you do exactly what the name implies: Stick a think blanket or cover between two freshly starched sheets. It’s a cost-effective way to turn your sleep space into a luxury bedroom — the blanket can be laundered far less often, and it eliminates the need for a duvet cover. Find a blanket that you love, good quality sheets, and try this sandwiching technique. You’ll be amazed at how this simple trick can work wonders on a bed.
Add Little Accents to Bring out the Luxury in Luxury Bedroom
Whether it’s a high-quality candle or fresh cut flowers, turning your space into a luxury bedroom is all about doing the little things. It’s not just about how it looks (though this is super important); it’s about creating a feast for your senses. Your sense of smell might not be the first thing you think of for a good night’s sleep, but it’s often the difference between creating a space you love and one that’s just ordinary. If you’re looking for the luxury bedroom of your dreams, try adding some fresh cut flowers every couple days in a pretty vase and see if it doesn’t change your outlook a little.
