Want a snuggle-worthy bedroom? Here are 10 tips to make your bedroom cozy:
Giant chunky blankets.
Pile up on giant chunky blankets. The bigger and chunkier the better. They might be a bit of a splurge, but it’ll be worth it when you can curl up in bed into a cocoon of fluff at the end of the day. And you’ll be especially warm and comfy come winter.
Fluffy throw pillows.
Put them everywhere. The same rule goes for pillows as it does for blankets: the bigger and fluffier the better, and the more the merrier. Basically you want to make your bed feel like a pile of clouds.
Choose dim lighting.
Skip the overhead lights and plug in some small bedside lamps. There’s really no need for your bedroom to be particularly well-lit, and the dim lighting will ease you into relaxation mode. Choose neutral colored lampshades—nothing too crazy.
Keep the TV out in the living room. The same goes for your computer. Oh, and leave your phone alone too. The artificial light from our screens can affect our sleep patterns, and it can cause stress too. You might be tempted to stay up late and send emails or check up on Facebook, but your bedroom should really be a place to unwind, and if you don’t give yourself the chance to, your sleep will be affected.
Light a scented candle.
Candlelight is perfect for relaxation, and one with a yummy, relaxing scent will feel even cozier to your senses. Rather than piling up on a million little tea lights, stick to just one large candle. They’re a bit more economical—and less of a fire hazard. Just be sure to blow it out before you fall asleep! Here are some relaxing scents to check out:
Fill your room with books.
What is more relaxing than reading before bed? Fill your shelves with your favorite books to unwind with. You’ll never be more than an arm’s reach away from a good read—which will be welcome news when you’re wrapped up in those giant chunky blankets and don’t want to get out of bed.
Buy a fluffy throw rug.
If your bedroom is a little bare, a throw rug will go a long way in the cozy department. A big shaggy throw rug will add warmth to your bedroom by filling in any empty space. Go for something soft and shaggy—it’ll feel great on your bare feet when you wake up.
Make it personal.
Make your bedroom personal by decorating with photos and trinkets you’re particularly fond of. Surround yourself with good memories and you’ll feel the stress melt away the minute you set foot in your super cozy bedroom.
Create a canopy.
One sure-fire way to make your bedroom cozy is to drape a luxurious canopy over your bed. You don’t even have to buy a new bed for this—you can make one yourself! There are a ton of DIY methods to check out .
Make your bed every day.
Making your bed every morning is one of the most productive ways to start your day. You’ll feel more motivated for the rest of the morning, and ultimately less stressed. Plus, your bedroom will look awesome and inviting when you get home later.
