Renovations That Transform Your Bedroom into an Oasis
We keep hearing study after study about the terrible effects of stress; it comes to us in all sorts of forms: the job, traffic, the kids’ report cards, too much technology. Many of us could use a sanctuary space where we can unwind. Since we spend roughly about a third of our lives there, we should transform our bedrooms into the stress-free space we need. By enhancing your bedroom for more comfortable sleeping and relaxing, you can create a room that calms your senses and allows you to unwind from the everyday.
If you don’t have a ceiling fan in your bedroom, we can install one for you in any style you like. A ceiling fan keeps the air circulating, ensuring that it feels refreshing and comfortable. During hot summer weather, it can help you keep cool so that your sweat less at night. Today, these fans come in a myriad of looks. You can select one with tropical flair, something chic and contemporary, or a traditional model. Many come with light fixtures as well. You’ll want to choose a model that has a dimmer so you can control your bedroom’s lighting ambience.
Perhaps it doesn’t sound glamorous, but some custom built-ins can help you eliminate bedroom clutter. Walking into a room that’s loaded with clutter can actually add to our stress level. To keep your bedroom airy, think about adding a window seat with built-in storage or some in-wall cabinets with space for all your odds and ends. Built-ins will help you keep your oasis tidy and organized and can be designed to reflect your bedroom’s décor. We can also design them to specifically suit your storage needs.
Makeover Your Walls
What is your ideal oasis? A cozy mountain chalet with fireplace or an island bungalow with a view of the beach? You can some inspiration from your favorite place to your bedroom makeover by adding fresh paint to your walls or even a boldly patterned wallpaper. There are many different wallpaper patterns today; you can choose a paper with a mural of an island scene, a tropical garden, a woodland meadow–anything you like. If nothing else, a fresh coat of paint in warm and inviting colors will make your bedroom feel clean, fresh, and new again.
Enliven with Plants
Fortunately, plants can enhance and enliven any type of room décor. But that’s not the only reason to include plants in your bedroom. A wide array of indoor plants has air-purifying properties. They can actually freshen the air in your bedroom! If you have a green thumb, you might want to let us install a greenhouse window where you can grow your indoor plants; however, many plants do fine with some indirect sunlight. Add some plants like peace lilies, spider plants, and bamboo plants will keep your air smelling fresh while actually removing indoor pollutants.
