To get a great night’s sleep regularly, you’ll have to invest in a comfortable set of bedding that feels soft and luxurious. The right mattress, bedsheets, and pillows can have a massive impact on your sleep quality. 

Bed comfort often depends on the material and weave of the fabric used in your bedding, so take the time to check the thread count of the bedding you’re eyeing. 

The higher the thread, the softer a bed sheet will feel–and the higher its price point. For best results, we recommend picking bedding in the 200-400 thread count range!

By layers of textures, we meant layering your bed with quilted blankets and faux-fur throws, preferably in neutral tones, to introduce rich, intimate textures.

You can mix and match bedding of contrasting textures, such as a knit throw and soft velvet pillow, to build a cosy and warm vibe. 

Materials like wood, linen, rattan, wicker, stone and wool are excellent in adding an interesting layer of warmth and textures to any room. 

When it comes to textures, don’t be afraid to experiment with different fabrics, from velvet and silk to leather and boucle. You might be surprised by how an unusual pair of textures could make your room cosier and more relaxing.

Choosing the right wall colour is crucial because it plays an important role in creating the type of look you’re after.

Warm colours are your best options if you want a bedroom where you could relax and spend a lot of time either studying or working, or just chilling. 

Red and yellow are great colours if you want a bright, refreshing change in your space. Studies have shown that these colours can give one’s mood, energy, and creativity a much-needed boost.

Depending on the amount of time you spend in your room and the type of activities you like to do, a warm-coloured bedroom could help you be more relaxed and at the same time more productive.

To turn your bedroom into a cosy paradise, you need proper lighting, but not just any lighting. 

Since the bedroom is the space for relaxation and rest, it needs a certain type of lighting capable of creating suitable conditions for that. Ambient lighting is what helps you create a bedroom atmosphere that’s conducive to relaxing or whatever mood you want to have.

The secret to proper ambient lighting is incorporating various sources of lighting and having multiple modes and strengths of lighting, allowing you to easily adjust them according to your mood. 

Here’s a tip: soft bedside lamps, floor lamps, and strategically mounted ceiling lights are great for adding a touch of drama to your bedroom.

Your nightstand is more than just a dumping ground for your glasses, books, loose changes, and skincare essentials. As one of the larger pieces in your bedroom, it deserves its chance to shine. 

To make a nightstand come alive, it needs a great table lamp, but make sure to choose an appropriate size so it doesn’t feel overwhelming. 

It also doesn’t have to be functional, so you could pick one that’s purely decorative!

Another purpose of nightstands is to keep your essentials within reach, so you don’t have to get out of bed. To keep your jewellery, hair ties, glasses, and earbuds organised, you could place a small catch-all bowl on top to hold items you take off at night before sleeping.

When you get out of bed in the morning, there’s no better feeling than sinking your feet into a big, soft bedroom rug. That’s probably enough reason to invest in a plush bedroom rug to add warmth to your room and give it an interesting extra layer of texture. 

Serving as your room’s focal point, bedroom rugs are usually placed underneath the bed. The size of the bedroom rug will depend on the size of your bed and how far under the bed you want to position it, as well as the other furniture in your room. 

So before buying a rug for your bedroom, think about how you want it arranged first. 

Cosy up your bedroom with the perfect rug

Your bedroom is where you likely spend most of your time at home, so it’s worth investing time and money into turning it into a cosy, relaxing space where you can rest and recharge your energy. 

From investing in good bedding to buying a bedroom rug, transforming your bedroom doesn’t have to be a hassle if you know where to look!
