Creating A Bedroom Oasis From The Outside World
Creating A Bedroom Oasis From The The outside world has a way of pushing its advertisements, demands, and stressors into our personal havens. To keep these boundaries up and to create a relaxing space you need to focus on deliberately drawing a line between your life and the outside world in your bedroom. Doing this means that you need to consider carefully when it comes to choosing things like the bedroom lighting, the bedroom furniture, and last but never least the bedroom furnishings and bedroom accessories.
When it comes to bedroom furnishings and accessories, you want to be looking at items that create barriers. For example, you will love having blackout drapes, which can keep ambient light away and also block out circling headlights from the traffic patterns on your street. Similarly, blinds or screens will keep you from being distracted by street movements and keep prying eyes away from you and out of the bedroom.
Bedroom furniture will almost certainly make a big difference to you and your bedroom. Always choose a bed that is comfortable and welcoming at the end of a long, hard day. To do this, you want to find the textures and materials that embrace your body most completely. You may find, for example, that the extra softness of modal or bamboo sheets is exactly what you need to work away the tension of your daily life. If the bedroom allows for it then go for king size “your highness” – why not when 8 hours of being tucked up works out to a third of a day.
Lighting options is another consideration which is often overlooked. You get harsh fluorescents all day long at the office, so you know you don’t need to get them again in the bedroom! Look for lights that offer a natural light spectrum or that offer a softer, yellowish glow. This can warm up the room emotionally and create a more relaxed mood for your enjoyment.
We spend enough of our time with the outside world dictating the environment. Do yourself a favour and create a bedroom environment that is an oasis from the sound and clutter of the outside world. In your own environment, you will be able to get the relaxation you need to go out and face the world feeling prepared and well rested.
