Sleep eight hours a night, and you’ll spend 2,920 hours a year (more than 121 days) in your master bedroom.
Because you spend so much time in that room, it should be nothing short of a place that promotes rest so you can spend the rest of your time being productive and happy.
Follow these five low-budget tips to transform your room into the relaxing haven that it needs to be.
CLEAN IT OUT
Toss the laundry in a closed basket, move your home office into another room and trade out the toys for new ones.
REARRANGE THE FURNITURE
You could arrange the headboard against the wall opposite the bedroom’s door or place it facing the TV or window, but don’t place the bed at a diagonal position that takes up valuable space.
With a chair or two in your bedroom, you are able to relax with a book, energize over a simple breakfast or hang out and watch a family movie together.
REPAINT THE ROOM
A fresh coat of paint enhances your mood and creates the atmosphere you want. Red and purple are said to enhance intimacy, green creates tranquility and calmness while yellow and orange increase energy.
