Basic Tips for Romantic Bedrooms

Basic Tips for Romantic Bedrooms

The bedroom, a place for rest, sleep and romance. Here are some basic tips for romantic bedrooms to make your bedroom feel extra special.

How do you get the feeling of romance into your bedroom?

It is simple.

You have to learn about yourself and your partner. It is great getting ideas from people like me for your decoration, but you need to create a space that reflects your wants, needs and desires.

For me, I love good quality high tread count cotton sheets and down pillows. A light and soft down duvet with a simple textured cover, (I don’t like too many patterns in my bedroom, it makes the room feel too busy for me). My husband likes to have bed side lights which he puts on when he draws the drapes to give the room a subtle glow.

We have a very large picture of our wedding day of the wedding party walking along our favorite beach on the wall above our bed. This reminds us of a happy day and of us being united together. We also ban the children’s toys from the master bedroom, so we don’t trip over in the soft subtle lighting! This is enough to create a romantic mood in our bedroom, as we spend all day surrounded by design and decoration, it is nice to relax your mind in a simple space.

What do you like?

Snuggly fur rugs, candles, aromatherapy oils burning, lace and frills, four poster bed, classical music playing? There are lots of things that can make a bedroom feel romantic.

Subtle light to the side, warm and inviting colors, luxury fabrics, a good start for a romantic bedroom.

The basics are:

Get your Linen right

Make sure that when you get into bed it is comfortable and feels great on your skin. Make sure the bedcovers aren’t too heavy. Ensure you have enough pillows to make you comfortable. Read more about sheets and pillows.

Soft Subtle Lighting

Make sure you have a dimmer switch on your main lights or use bed side table lights to create a soft light. Candles are ok, but a little volatile.

Basic Ideas for Your Romantic Bedroom

Get Personal

Have things in the room that make you feel at ease, that could be your teddy bear from when you were a child or a picture of a special place, person or pet. Some other ideas are perfume bottle collections, match box car collections, books, magazines. Something that makes you both relaxed.

The Design Element

Of course there is always the design element of the bedroom, the placement of furniture, the selection of window treatments, the wall and floor finishes.

The flooring should be warm underfoot, you an achieve this with wall to wall carpet or a loose laid rug.

The drapery should be soft and flowing, to emulate a relaxed feeling.

The walls can be anything, but make sure they don’t overpower the space. A bedroom is often a small room, so light and airy works well, pale blues, soft peach, and buttery yellows. That is unless you want to go full on high time red romance, this is great for enticing romance but not relaxing for the mind!

This bedroom is luxurious, masculine but warm and inviting, subtle colors and comfy leather sofa and cushions!

The style of furniture can greatly effect the look of your bedroom, try to keep the amount of furniture to a minimal, you want to be able to move around your bedroom and you don’t want it to take over as the decoration. Slick smooth lined lacquered furniture, rustic timber, french provincial, hand painted distressed, steel framed, you can see the great range and how they can dominate the bedroom.

So to summarize, search out what design and decoration you like on the internet and in magazines, then think about the few basic ideas that I have given you and they can guide you to creating your very own romantic bedroom.
