How To Create A Relaxing Bedroom Sanctuary You'll Love

Implement these 9 simple tips to create your beautiful bedroom sanctuary that you'll never want to leave.

1. Opt For Soothing Lighting

Soothing Lighting For Relaxing Bedroom Sanctuary

Choose soothing lighting and ones that are easy to access.

When you're winding down and in bed the last thing you want to do is get up and turn off the lighting.

These flameless candles are perfect in creating a bedroom sanctuary.  I absolutely love mine and they come with a remote.

You can relax anywhere in your bedroom and simply point the remote to your various candles and turn them off and on.

Are you in bed and don’t want to get up? 

Simply get comfortable, reach for the remote and with the press of a button the candles turn off.

This 3 way touch, dimmable bedside lamp is the perfect light fixture.

You choose the light setting, 3 way dimmer, and when you're ready to turn it off, simply touch the lamp.

And this beautiful bedside lamp has 2 USB charging ports and an AC outlet so there's no need for you to get up and recharge your electronic devices.

Everything is simply right there at your fingertips.

This bedroom lamp is all in one for a relaxed experience.

Try to limit your use of blue light as it can affect your ability to have that restful, calm feeling and can mess with your body’s ability to fall asleep.

Examples of blue light are electronic devices and very bright LED bulbs.

2. Use Luxurious Throws and Blankets

Soft, luxurious throws and blankets add exquisite textures to your bedroom and they're simply wonderful to wrap yourself in.

Choose soothing colors that match the ambience you wish to create.

This 60″ x 80″ elegant, soft throw is one of my favorites.  I've purchased this multiple times, for myself and as a gift to others.

Everyone LOVES it.

3. Store Essentials In A Bedside Table

Having a bedside table is an essential piece of furniture for your bedroom sanctuary.

You need something to place your bedside lamp on and one in which you can easily store other items but still have easy access from your bed.

I encourage you to consider bedside tables that have drawers at the top so you can easily store your bedroom essentials such as your electronic devices, books, magazines and so forth.

4. Make Use Of Luxurious Pillows

Luxurious pillows are used for more than sleep. 

Besides sinking your head into luxurious pillows for a wonderful night of rest and sleep, they can be used for so much more.

Larger, quality pillows can be used to prop yourself up while reading or watching tv.

They can be used for to rest your legs under or placed between your legs for back support.

My husband always wanted smaller, more firm pillows, however after a while and using my pillows when I wasn't around, he admitted he really liked mine.

I ordered more and we now have eight of these! We LOVE them.

For a relaxing bedroom sanctuary, pillows matter!

5. Hang Blackout Curtains

The absence of light is essential to rest and sleep.  Insufficient darkness throughout the night can lead to sleep disturbances and frequent and prolonged awakenings.

I first invested in blackout curtains which worked wonderfully.  

We then added blackout shades throughout our house and we love the entire set up now.

Not only do blackout curtains, blackout shades and blackout blinds help with rest and sleep, they also offer you a high level of privacy.

Blackout curtains and shades come in many colors.  For our bedroom sanctuary we have black ones.

Color is personal so whichever color you choose, know that blackout curtains contribute much to a relaxing bedroom and help you have a better night's sleep.

6. Ditch Digital Clocks

Light (and blue light from digital clocks) can distract us and prolong the time it takes for us to fall asleep.  It can also cause sleep disturbances.

Ditch the digital clock.  You'll have a more aesthetically pleasing bedroom sanctuary and most likely a better night's sleep.

7. Keep wireless headphones Close By

Keep wireless headphones and/or earbuds close by. 

Good headphones allow you to block out external noise and many offer excellent stereo quality sound.

It's a great way to block out the rest of the world and get lost in music, a great show or an audiobook.

Earbuds are great too.  I keep both close by.  I LOVE my wireless headphones and airpods.

Either way, these allow you to turn your entire world into a sanctuary.

8. Get A Home Massager

Unwind in your bedroom sanctuary with a home massager.

It can be just what's needed to loosen tight muscles and work out those knots in your neck after a long day.

Relax and work out those sore muscles and body aches and pains with a shiatsu massager or a full body massage mat.

These  have certainly help me unwind and they helped much during a time I was dealing with some physical health challenges.

These can help turn your bedroom into a spa-like oasis.

9. Enjoy A Soothing Essential Oil Humidifier
