How to decorate a bedroom and make it more relaxing

Surveys and statistics show that we spend at least a third of our lifetime in bed. That means we probably stay in our bedrooms for a longer time. Some of us even eat in bed, watch TV, work and all sorts of stuff. However, bedrooms should be for relaxation and sleep. As such, they should be as inviting and conducive as possible for resting after a hard day at work or school.

If candles are too hazardous for your bedroom, you can play with different lights to create and set the mood. Avoid bright lights as they are too intense and will not help you relax. Use a dimmer instead to control the light in your room.

If you are the type who cannot go without electronics in their hands, maybe it is time to let them take a break from you. Do not bring your gadgets in the bedroom and use it as a place to relax and not as an entertainment area or workplace. You have the living room and the study for that.
