Guest post contributed by Donna Estrada

You might encounter questions such as, “Where is home for you?” the answers might vary in each person but they have one thing in common why they end up answering that and it’s because they’ve found comfort in that place that they consider as their home. Four-in-ten or a total of 38% say the place they consider home isn’t where they’re living now.

A Step by Step Guide to a Comfortable Bedroom

Guest post contributed by Zack Davis

A bedroom is your personal space that you look forward to after coming home from work all tired and worn-out. Therefore it should be designed in a way that gives you comfort and helps you to enjoy a sound sleep. This article will serve as a step by step guide to help you create a comfortable bedroom which can refresh and rejuvenate your body and mind.

 

Step 1: Select the bedroom furniture

Selecting the bedroom furniture depends on your personal taste. However, if you are a fashion freak and want the décor of your bedroom to stay up to date, then it is best to opt for a mixture of traditional and modern furniture pieces. The good thing about traditional furniture is that it looks classic and is never out of fashion. If you don’t share your bedroom with anyone, then you can go for single bed options or if you are sharing your bedroom, but it is small in size then its best to go for queen size bed instead of king size bed. Look at the head board of the bed and choose the one that best suits your needs. For example, if you prefer reading a book before going to sleep the best choice for you is to have an upholstered headboard having a comfortable surface that would soothe your back when you lean against it. Other furniture items include side tables, night stand and a rocking chair that give a complete look to your personal space.

 

Step 2: Select a comfortable mattress for your bed

The key to a sound and peaceful sleep is a comfortable mattress. Make sure that your mattress is not only soft but has a comfortable fabric that feels good against your skin. The kind of mattress you opt for largely determines the quality of rest you get every night. Before going for the mattress shopping set a budget range and check different mattresses for their comfort level and opt for best memory foam mattress that would provide you personalized comfort.

Step 3: Select the lightning of your bedroom

Choosing the right lighting scheme can uplift the vibe and highlight the décor of your bedroom. This does not mean that you should go for lighting that is too bright. A bedroom is a place where you look up to get some rest after a tiring day at work so the lighting scheme should be soft so that it relaxes your nerves and body. If you like reading in your bedroom, then make sure that proper light fixture is hanging above your bed that provides you with sufficient light needed for reading purpose.

 

Step 4: Select the paint for your bedroom

Bright and vibrant wall paints no doubt looks good and add a playful spirit to your space but opting for soothing color palettes is a good choice when you are considering to paint the bedroom walls. Neutral wall paints give a spacious look to your bedroom and have a relaxing impact on your mind and body. Moreover, subtle shades give you the leverage to decorate the walls of your bedroom according to your own style to add a bit of color and glamour to your bedroom. Hang your favorite pictures or abstract art pieces, make a collage or go with just a single statement piece the choice is totally yours.

 

Step 5: Add a centered rug 

A small rug placed at the center of your bedroom will not only complete the décor of your bedroom but will also give a welcoming start to your day by pampering your feet by its soft fiber and fur right after you wake up and step out of bed. Moreover, the unique patterns and designs of the rug blend perfectly with the décor of your bedroom and give it a more exotic look.
