For some, the master bedroom can be the most neglected room in the house. If it is just off the living room or kitchen, it can become a catch-all for things when you are trying to clean up quickly before hosting. How many times has your queen sized mattress become a great spot for a pile of clean laundry, and your dresser the perfect place to throw that stack of mail you haven’t opened yet?
How can this be avoided? Invest a little time and money in this room to make it a fresh, inviting space to be in. If you have a queen mattress but haven’t invested in a headboard yet, perhaps some decorative pillows can add color and character to a plain bed. Adding a tall vase or jar with some branches or long-stemmed flowers can also really brighten up a room, so adding them to a nightstand alongside a table lamp is a good idea. If you have a TV on your bureau, consider hanging photos above the television and adding a candle or two. Creating a therapeutic space to be in is crucial for sleep, comfort and mental health. We truly thrive a little better and easier if we have a nice home to live in.
Consider giving your bedroom some “TLC” with a new bedroom set, dresser and perhaps some curtains. If you’re not sure what your style or preference of furniture might be, consider renting a full bedroom set and trying it out for awhile. If you like it, then lucky you! It’s already in place and you can then work on owning it. If it’s not quite what you had in mind, you can always switch it out for something else that you think might fit the space a bit better. In the hustle and bustle of our daily lives, we should remember to nurture the things that we take for granted, including ourselves and our rest. Maintain a healthy space to live and sleep in for a new, refreshing attitude on life!
