9 Tips to make your bedroom cozy and relaxing in budget

Designing your bedroom is really exciting, but while decorating your bedroom, you must keep in mind the purpose your bedroom serves and depending on that, you must incorporate various design and decorative items. Listed below are the 9 key elements that can make your bedroom cozy and relaxing in budget.

Soft lighting

Bedroom is associated with coziness and happiness and to set the perfect mood, lighting does play an important role. It will be unwise of you to go for some harsh lighting as that will completely damage the soothing feel. Moreover, harsh bright lights are a contributor of visual noise which keeps the body clock awake even though the lights are switched off. So, to avoid such commotion, it is better to go for several small lamps all around the room at varying heights. This will keep the whole room lighted as well as not prove to be harsh to the otherwise calm environment.

You do not even need to turn on all the lamps at a time. Just switch on the one which is needed at that time. Three-way light bulbs are good as they come with the option of adjusting the level of the light which is good in setting up the perfect peaceful mode.

Lampshades are also great specially the ones that are lined on the inside using metallic gold paper. This is because they cast a soothing soft glow that is enough in increasing that cozy, relaxing feel.

Soft color paint

Well, the color of the paint is completely your choice but if you want your bedroom to give the perfect soothing feel, then it is preferable that you paint the room with very subtle colors. See, you may like, dark blue, or apple green or tangerine, but it is best suited for spaces where you need to remain motivated and cheerful all the time. But, these same colors may actually make you cranky when you come to rest in your bedroom after a long hectic day.

Therefore, to create a peaceful environment, go for soft colors like dove gray, pale gold, light coral, pastel pink etc. This will help to calm your mind and body and prepare you for the night’s sleep. Select the paint and color theme for your bedroom wisely to make it cozy, relaxing and romantic.

Perfect bed

Well, it certainly deserves a mention in the list of key elements to make your bedroom cozy and relaxing. However, the definition of a perfect bed may vary from person to person. Like for example, for someone with a bad back, he/s he will want a bed which is quite firm, while someone else may desire for a very soft one. But, no matter what type of bed you prefer, make sure that the bed is of good quality which will help you to sleep well.

Besides the type (soft or firm), the size of the bed is also an important factor that one should not ignore. If you get a big bed, it will be more spacious and hence the comfort level will be more. While considering the size, you must also keep in mind your spouse or child in case your child sleep with you.

Also, remember that proper dressing of your bed is necessary. Smooth cotton bed sheets are great as the texture is quite smooth and soothing. Wash the bed sheets weekly in hot water with a detergent having beautiful fragrance.

The pillows must also be soothing and just perfect that is not too firm and not too soft which is ideal for good sleep. You may also keep few soft blankets to make the bed cozier. However, make sure that the blanket is lighter during summer and; it must be a heavier one in winter.

White noise

White noise is great in creating the perfect peaceful environment and so it is one of the key elements that will make your bedroom very cozy and relaxing. White noise is nothing but a continuous low sound which your ears do not really hear nor can your brain register properly, like the sound of the air conditioner or the very low hum of the fan. There are also white noise machines that play very soothing sounds like the chirping of the crickets, water trickling, gentle ocean waves etc.

The reason I said you to use white noise is that, it is often very useful in eliminating loud sounds that cause disturbance in your sleep. So, many people use these white noise machines to fall asleep fast. You may also try it out and see whether it works for you or not.


There are many soothing and calming scents that can actually help in creating a calm environment just perfect to get a good night’s sleep. Lavender and jasmine certainly tops the list as they have been scientifically proven to be really effective. However, it is not just lavender or jasmine that you have to use, but you may use any soft scent which you love. You may keep a scented candle or spritz a bit of home fragrance underneath your pillow covers or can also keep hand creams of soothing scents in your nightstand.

However, remember that the candles may be soothing for sleep but you must be careful while keeping that as you may suddenly fall asleep and the flames may cause some accidents. Hence, you have to keep it at a safe distance. And, if you want to avoid risks, then you may go for the electric oil warmers, reed diffusers etc.

Black-out curtains

The black-out curtains are one of the key elements that will make your bedroom very cozy and relaxing. This is because; most of us need a pitch-dark room to get that perfect sleep (although there are some who prefer dim lighting). They create the quiet dark environment and help you to remain away from the busy world when you are resting.

The black-out curtains not only block the morning rays of the sun from entering your bedroom enabling you to sleep for long hours in the morning, but also block unwanted lights during the night like for example, street lamps, car headlights etc. Hence, they are great for napping both during night as well as during the day.

Soft music

Well, I do not know whether it applies for all but most people actually finds soft music really soothing which lull them into sleep. In fact, I myself have tried it and found it extremely relaxing. However, the choice of the music is important, and so play something that has very soft rhythms. Also, remember to keep the volume really low, as even soothing music when played loud can get annoying.

While going to sleep, play some soft music and then set the music to shut down automatically after a certain period of time. Otherwise you may fall asleep suddenly and your music will go on playing which in turn may wake you up in the middle of the night.

Make it a sleep only zone

Your bedroom must be a sleep only zone. Different room serves different purposes and the bedroom is meant for resting, relaxing and sleeping. But, many people make it a room for other activities as well which may make you ultimately feel that the room is for activities and stress rather than resting and relaxing. In other words, the whole purpose of your bedroom will be lost. Henceforth, allot separate rooms for exercises, studying, eating, for doing office work etc. and keep the bedroom for sleeping and relaxing only.

Keep it clutter free

Clutter is no way close to giving you a relaxing feel. Instead, it creates a very suffocating environment which is not at all ideal to relax or to get some good sleep. It is also considered to be “visual” noise that is very stressing and frustrating. Hence, you must get rid of the clutter and that will certainly help you to make your bedroom cozy and relaxing.
