A relaxing bedroom is essential for consistent good-quality sleep which, in turn, is key for your physical and mental wellbeing. From choosing the right mattress to creating a sensory environment that helps your mind unwind, it’s important to pay a bit of attention to how your bedroom looks and feels. Read on for our 14 relaxing bedroom ideas and then visit our Sleep Well, Live Well sleep hub for more help and advice.
10. Treat yourself to top-quality bedding
Small luxuries can really help elevate your mood. For a relaxing bedroom idea you’ll love, treat yourself to high thread count sheets and pillowcases. You’ll feel like you're sleeping at a stylish boutique hotel, and what could be more relaxing than that?
12. Keep it simple
While we love an ornate mirror in the bathroom or a bright red sofa in the living room, keeping things understated in the bedroom may help you sleep better.
Opt for simple finishes, neutral colours and natural textures. Oak bedroom furniture ticks all the boxes for a relaxing bedroom.
13. Respect the sleep zone
We’ve all done it in the bedroom – answered emails, caught up on work, folded laundry and watched TV. Sleep experts recommend you avoid associating your bedroom with active or everyday tasks and create a space that’s focused on relaxation, plain and simple.
