Winter 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.
Bedding 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.
Add 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.
Another fantastic way to update your space is to put up new designer wallpaper. Prestige Decor has a variety of colours, styles and textures. There are so many different prints and patterns to choose from, you’ll definitely be able to find one to match your taste. Adding an accent wall to your bedroom is a great way to spice up your space. It can really brighten it up during the dreary winter months. Wallpaper can help add definition and breathe new life into your space.
Window coverings are particularly important to update during the winter season. If you have sheer tattered curtains, some of the precious heat inside your house could be escaping through your windows. Getting thick curtains is not only a great way to keep your heat in but to add a fun design element to your bedroom. Prestige Decor offers blackout drapery, customized window coverings and custom shades & blinds to help you keep the cold out of your bedroom this winter.
To add some ambiance and create an inviting atmosphere in your bedroom, update your lighting fixtures. If you only have an overhead light, it’s a great idea to purchase some lamps for your desk, bedside tables or whatever other furniture you have in the space. If you already have lamps, consider switching out the lampshades. Lampshades control how much or how little light is released by your lamp. If you want a dim, warm light for reading in bed, look for a darker shade to properly diffuse the light. You can also get new lightbulbs. A fun way to update your bedroom is to get a colour changing lightbulb. These high-tech bulbs can be controlled using an app on your smartphone. You can use them to lighten up your room with any shade from the rainbow.
