How to Make Your Bedroom a Peaceful & Relaxing Sanctuary





These days, it seems as if daily life can be so utterly hectic and busy that there is barely time to take stock of the day when you head to bed and instead instantly fall asleep before the alarm goes off a few hours later.

Rather than an act of self-indulgence, concentrating your efforts on turning your bedroom into a relaxing oasis of calm is a fantastic way of boosting your levels of emotional health and well-being, not to mention the best method of ensuring you have a restful night’s sleep.

With this in mind, here is how to make your bedroom a peaceful and relaxing sanctuary.

Blue Light Ban!

First and foremost, even though it may well be useful to have a television screen in your bedroom, such technology is neither relaxing nor peaceful, and furthermore, it is certainly not conducive to sleep.

The most common sources of blue light found in everyday items include:

  • Computer monitors
  • Electronic e-readers
  • Tablets
  • LED lights
  • Fluorescent lighting
  • Flat-screen televisions
  • Smartphones

Too much blue light emanating from various pieces of technology will make your bedroom feel more of an office, and what is more, there are numerous proven links between spending too much time scrolling social media and reduced levels of emotional health and well-being.


The key to turning your bedroom into an oasis of calm lies in adding comforting and luxurious materials and textures, and your bed is the perfect place to start.

Hopefully, you are already aware that making your bed every morning once you wake up is the best possible way to start your day, and moreover, arranging beautifully coordinating cushions and blankets to make a display on your bed will also make it feel more sanctuary-like.

Warmth & Light

Another important factor of a peaceful and comfortable bedroom is the temperature of the room and the intimacy and atmosphere created by the lights.

Smart thermostats are the best way to easily control the level of heat in your bedroom, and what is more, your heating will then be entirely accessible through your smartphone. When you read more about the myriad of benefits of a smart thermostat, this will surely be at the top of your list.

Regarding lighting, if you have not got one already, you should look to changing your current light switch to a dimmer switch instead, so you can create a more relaxing ambiance in the space.


The fourth suggestion on this list to complete the transformation of your bedroom into one of peace and tranquility is to start experimenting with different oil burners, wax melts, and candles.

It all comes down to individual preference when choosing a candle, especially for such an intimate space as your own bedroom, and as such, it is worth visiting stores in person rather than ordering candles online. Moreover, there is now a seemingly endless range of wax melts which often produce a stronger and more pronounced aroma.
