When was the last time you did a makeover on your bedroom? It seems more often than not, when we update our homes, bedrooms get left out. Maybe it’s because it’s a room that very few people see, but when you think about how much time you spend in your bedroom (sleeping or watching TV), remodeling your bedroom should actually be a top priority (yes, we know new granite would look beautiful in the kitchen, but a new mattress will take care of you even better).
According to the Better Sleep Council, “the bedroom environment has a major impact on the quality and quantity of sleep and the bedroom should be the most luxurious and personal space in any home.” Okay, no arm twisting… we’re on board!
The first step to your bedroom makeover is deciding what does and doesn’t work in your space. Ask yourself one very important question… “Do I love my current mattress?” If the answer is no, it’s time to upgrade to something better, a mattress that will hug your body and make you want to stay in bed and call in sick to work (Don’t actually call into work sick, Doctors notes are not included J).
Next, and probably most fun step is deciding what things in life make you happy, calm and relaxed, and then decorate! Maybe you love the smell of lavender and the soft touch of silk. Or maybe you prefer the feel of cotton and the scent of fresh linens. Whatever your taste, now it’s time to put your ideas to work!
