Reading Time: 4 minutesWinter is coming, meaning the days are shorter and the nights are longer. Human beings don’t have to hibernate like other mammals, but in the colder months it’s certainly tempting to spend more time lounging in the bedroom. There are few steps you can take to make this space cozier, warmer and more inviting during this chilly season. Here’s how to update your bedroom: When you’re in the bedroom, you’re likely to be spending the most time sleeping in your bed. In fact, in a 24-hour period you should be spending at least a third of this time sleeping. If you’re looking to update your bedroom, it’s crucial that you start with this ever-important piece of furniture. At Prestige Décor, we have thousands of different fabrics on offer to make customized bedding including bedspreads, duvet covers, coverlets, bed skirts, pillow shams and cushions. If you have drab bedding that doesn’t match the design of your bedroom, we would be thrilled to help you pick the perfect style to suit your taste.
HeadboardsBedding is not the only part of the bed that’s important, there is also the headboard. If your bed either didn’t come with a headboard or it’s time for an upgrade, Prestige Decor can also create customized upholstered headboards. There are a variety of different styles: wooden, leather, suede and more to suit any bedroom. Headboards are often overlooked as a design element but they can add a lot of not only comfort, but also flair to your bedroom.
AromatherapyAdd some scents to update your bedroom. This can be done by lighting a candle or some incense, plugging in an air freshener or diffusing essential oils. Scents are great way to transform your space and make it more inviting. You can make your bedroom smell like you’re in a bakery where tasty treats have just been pulled out of the oven or walking through the forest after a rainfall. Oil diffusers have become a trend recently with most major retailers selling them. Here are some of the best essential oils and why you should diffuse them in your bedroom:
- Lemon oil: Studies suggest that lemon oil vapor has mood boosting and anti-inflammatory properties.
- Cinnamon oil: Cinnamon oil can help clear up colds and soothe muscles.
- Lavender oil: Lavender oil can help you fall asleep.
- Eucalyptus oil: Eucalyptus functions as a pesticide and can help purify the air in your bedroom.
- Rosemary oil: Rosemary oil has been proven to decrease levels of the stress hormone cortisol.
