8 Must-Have Items for Creating Your Dream Bedroom


When it comes to designing the perfect bedroom, there is a distinct need to strike a balance between form and function.

Your bedroom is one of the spaces in your home that requires a little more time and effort than the others. Your bedroom deserves to be a stylish place packed with serenity-promoting personality.

To create a little bedroom magic, you will need these eight must-have items below:

1. Rug

If your bedroom has hardwood floors or tiles, add a plush rug to the mix to create a super comfortable underfoot experience.

Wool rugs are the perfect addition to your sleep space; they are both luxurious and warm – the perfect combination for any bedroom!

While you can add any rug to your sleep sanctuary, the best options are the softer ones. While sisal rugs are beautiful to look at, they might be a bit too hard and will not be as comfortable to walk on.

2. Lighting

Lighting plays a crucial role in how our bodies function. A soft, relaxing light will help to stimulate rest at night. If we get exposed to too much light at the wrong time, our sleep clocks will not work as well – so before you start installing pendants, lamps, and chandeliers, do some research first.

Before going to sleep, avoid bright and harsh lighting. Your bedside table lighting should be gentle to promote rest. If you are keen on the idea of installing recessed lighting in your bedroom, make sure to include a dimmer switch to keep you in control.

3. Bed

Your bed is one of the most crucial parts of your life. We spend over a third of our lives in bed, so your time slumbering will have a significant impact on your daily life. Your bed and, more importantly, your mattress are central to every aspect of your world.

Choose a two-sided mattress to get the most bang for your buck. Having a two-sided mattress means you can flip from one side to the other, giving each side a break. While you sleep on one side of the mattress, the other side has ample time to recover and return to its prior shape.

4. Perfect Pillows

We spend so much of our adult lives in pursuit of the perfect pillow. Reminiscent of the bears from Goldilocks, pillows should not be too soft, nor too hard – but they are undeniable bedroom essentials.

The perfect pillow needs to provide infinite comfort, be plush enough to be a welcome reprieve at the end of a long day but also offer critical support for your head and neck while you drift off to Lalaland.

Factor in your sleeping position and body weight when searching for the best fit for your nighttime needs.

5. Curtains or Blinds

Your bedroom should be a place that promotes rest, recovery, and a good night’s sleep. To promote quality sleep, your body produces a hormone called melatonin. Melatonin is produced at night by the pineal gland, acting as a prompt for your biological clock.

Installing blackout curtains or blinds can prevent light from disrupting this important nocturnal bodily function, allowing you to fall asleep quicker and stay in Dreamland for longer.

6. Plants

Plants are the perfect way to bring the outdoors in. Choose potted varieties that thrive in low-light conditions, such as peace lilies or snake plants. These plants can be added to windowsills, and shelves, or placed in the corners of the room in beautiful planters.

The best plants add a touch of calming coziness to the room and do not require much maintenance.

7. White Noise Machine

Nocturnal noises wreak havoc on your sleep quality. The more noises, the more time you will spend awake or only in stage 1 of sleep, decreasing REM sleep, and thus creating a perpetual state of shallow sleep is the best you can hope to get.

Not getting enough good quality sleep will impact your overall health and well-being – not to mention your mood.

Invest in a white noise machine to curb the excess sounds, allowing you to drift off to sleep and get a decent number of uninterrupted hours before your alarm goes off.

8. Nightstands

Nightstands are essential for creating a practical and beautiful solution for keeping essential items within reach.

Glasses, bottled water, and books can all be kept in the safe arms of your chosen nightstand. They are available in an impressive range of designs, colors, and sizes to suit your bedroom’s aesthetic.

The modern versions available include lighting and wireless charging devices for your phone or tablet – which is pure convenience!

Shop around online and invest in two of the best nightstands to suit the personality of your sleeping space. Nightstands effortlessly add a boost of style and symmetry to any bedroom.

To End

Choose your bedroom furniture and décor pieces wisely – they should promote comfort and relaxation. You can stretch your budget on more luxurious pieces for your bedroom because they will not be subject to the same wear and tear as other items in your home.

Do not panic when it comes to choosing options. There are thousands of ideas available online if you need inspiration, but do not feel pressured into choosing something trendy.

Your bedroom should be one of your favorite spaces in your home, so choose the furniture and décor pieces that speak to your soul.

Have fun designing the bedroom of your dreams!
