Your Guide To Creating A Bedroom Fit For A Mum

There’s nothing better than climbing into bed after a long day of chasing after the kids. As parents we certainly learn to appreciate the little things in life! Being a busy mum it’s easy to forget that the bedroom can be so much more than just somewhere you flop every evening.

With that in mind, here you’ll find a few quick and simple ways you can turn your night time nest into a calming, stylish and beautiful room that’s not just for sleeping – it’s just for you!

Furniture rental
Sounds quite extreme, but furniture rental is becoming more and more popular in every day homes. It’s exactly what it sounds like, it’s renting furniture for a period of time from a highly reputable and high-end firm that specialises in gorgeous pieces that match your taste. Check out this website for some inspiration. So, whether you’re looking for something chic and modern, or something a little more homely and traditional, furniture rental is a straightforward answer. It’s also practical and non-committal, so you won’t be lumbered with a wardrobe you suddenly dislike in six months!

Think calm
When you’re decorating, it can be easy to get carried away with stunning feature walls and eye catching interior design ideas that you’ve seen on TV and in your favourite soaps. But if you’re intending to create somewhere to relax and unwind after a long day, then you should stick to a more calming palette of colours.

· A soft, neutral green
· A smoky, soft grey
· Lavender
· Dark-grey blue 

Again, you don’t have to paint your entire room these colours, just a simple feature wall that will create a great focal point should be enough.

Banish your electricals
A radical idea, yes. But studies have shown that taking your eyes away from a screen for at least an hour before bed improves the quality of your sleep! Your partner might not like it, but it might be time to get rid of that TV! If your computer is in your room then try to relocate it. You can also try plugging in your smart phone/tablet elsewhere overnight, so you’re not tempted to check Facebook every five minutes!

Your linen
It’s time to ditch those old, worn sheets. Yes, they might be comforting even though the pattern has faded, but there’s nothing more comforting then slipping between fresh, soft sheets. Think a soft white or a pale cream colour for that added touch of luxury.
Go clutter free!
Clutter is considered to be “visual noise” and therefore, no good for a relaxing atmosphere. Its distracting, messy and also depressing. It’s amazing how much your mood can lift when you find yourself in a clean, tidy room. Remove any unneeded furniture, relocate any ornaments and find the time to empty out your wardrobe.

A little aromatherapy
Scents such as jasmine and lavender are proven to help relax any room. Light a scented candle or spray a room scent to create a wonderfully calming and soothing atmosphere.
