10 Things Every Bedroom Needs

roller shadesWant to spiff up your bedroom? We have put together some items that will complement and enhance your bedroom. Check them out:

  1. Theme
    We grant our little toddlers a theme, maybe a princess, car or sports theme, but forget to do the same in our bedroom. Even though it doesn’t need to be that specific, we should have something that we work with and follow through on. Working with stripes? Working with floral prints? Let them reappear in different places like bedspreads, window shades or pillows. You get the idea.
  2. Rugs
    Whether you have wooden floors, carpet or tile, you want that area rug to step on to when crawling out of bed in the morning. The more plush the better. It simply says cozy and welcome in this bed at the same time.
  3. Throw Pillows
    Pillows are functional and decor at the same time. While adding a touch of color and fluffiness to your room, they are inviting and convey the message “hang out and lean up against me”. Pillows transform your bed comforter from plain to dressed up with accessories.
  4. A place to sit
    Having an additional chair to read your book or put your shoes on is a nice functional extra to have. Have the chair color complement the colors in your bed spreads and everything ties together beautifully.
  5. Television
    Many advice columns advise against electronics in the bedroom! Especially for those that have trouble sleeping. Since I am the type that has no trouble falling asleep, I like to space out every once in a while in front of the TV. For me this is a nice item to have, but we certainly believe the experts that say it is better not to have one in your bedroom.
  6. Items you love
    For all those little knickknacks, pictures and items you treasure you should have shelving space or an area where it can be displayed. Wall shelves or your dresser could be the perfect place for your treasured items.
  7. Night stand
    While nightstands complement the bed furniture they also hold our items that keep our essentials close by. On mine there can always be found the book I currently read, my water, alarm clock and lip balm. I couldn’t do without one!
  8. Mattress
    While there isn’t much to look at here, we know that the right mattress can make all the difference in how we get through the night. Whether you prefer a memory foam mattress, a soft or extra hard one, the right mattress can be an essential piece in our bedroom.
  9. Pictures
    I am mostly talking of pictures that help the theme I was talking about earlier. Serene images that compliment the color scheme and theme of your room.
  10. Reading Lights
    Even if you don’t read often, to have the right reading lamp next to you bed is essential. For a quick lights on lights off in the night or the last things we do before turning lights off, a good reading light gives added flexibility in your bedroom.
