If your kids rule your home, it’s high time you took it back. You need your own personal area where you can pamper yourself. And if there’s one place you can make truly yours, it’s definitely your bedroom. In just a few simple steps, you can turn it into a dreamy retreat where you’ll forget all about mommy problems and just enjoy an indulgent atmosphere.
Start with wall paint
The color scheme of your bedroom should exude serenity and tranquillity while also having an elegant flair. You should focus on gentle shades that will help you create an atmosphere of relaxation and romance. Soft blush pink can be the perfect choice because it will create a soothing vibe and give your bedroom retreat glamorous appeal. You can also go with creamy whites or soft greys with beautiful blue undertones. These colors will turn your bedroom into a cosy, soothing and stylish sanctuary where you can take some time just to yourself.
Move to lighting
When it comes to bedroom lighting, it should be both functional and subtle. Installing dimmer switches is a convenient solution because it will allow you to adjust the lighting depending on your needs. You should also pay attention to the style of your fixtures and chose elegant ones that will elevate your bedroom décor. You should introduce a sophisticated pendant that will dominate your room while also adding chic floor and bedside lamps.
Say goodbye to clutter
Your bedroom should be free from clutter and your kids’ toys. This is your special place and it shouldn’t be burdened with unnecessary items. If you have a baby, you’ll probably have to keep some baby paraphernalia in your bedroom, but make sure to have a drawer for this purpose. Your clothes should be neatly organized in your closet rather than thrown over a chair. It’s time-consuming for a mom to clean and declutter on a regular basis. However, your bedroom is your retreat and you deserve to have an indulgent, clutter-free atmosphere.
Say hello to a lush master bed
After a long, busy day, the only thing you probably want is to have a good night’s sleep. Therefore, you should have a cosy bed that will help you relax and rest. You should make it as cosy and elegant as possible by adding stylish and luxury bed throws that will make you want to just curl in one of them and spend a day in your personal retreat. A soft, plush throw will truly cosy up your bed and make your entire bedroom feel warmer and more comfortable.
Style your nightstands
Your nightstands have no room for toys, kids’ school cards and other non-mommy-related items. Perfectly styled nightstands will give your bedroom the charm of five-star boutique hotels. Therefore, make sure to decorate them with just a few elegant details. It can be a vase of fresh flowers paired up with scented candles or an antique lamp next to your favorite book. Just make sure to keep them simple and elegant.
Create a cozy corner
Another great way to turn your bedroom into a retreat is to design a cozy corner. You can add a beautiful armchair next to your window and place a lovely side table next to it. This can be your place for daydreaming or reading. You can also install a window seat, add several cushions and a soft throw. The only missing thing is a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.
Or design a glamorous vanity
On the other hand, you can design a glamorous vanity where you’ll be able to pamper yourself. You can use glass containers for your makeup brushes and display your luxurious products. This can be the perfect spot for organizing your spa days at home. However, remember to keep it clutter-free and organized. Otherwise, it won’t help you relax, but remind you that you need to clean it.
Every mom deserves her own personal space where she can take care of herself. Therefore, you should wait no more and turn your bedroom into your own retreat.
