Ten simple tips on how to furnish the bedroom for maximum comfort and pleasant rest

But bedrooms are more than just a place to sleep. Your bedroom should be a place where you can go away from the noise, relax and feel 100% comfortable at all times.

Bedroom comfort is extremely important

The bedrooms from the Furniture 123 sales program already have an elegant design and a luxurious feel, giving you a pleasant place to live and sleep. But if you're looking for ways to make your bedroom even more comfortable, consider the 10 helpful tips below.

1. Ensure adequate lighting

Simply adjusting the way your bedroom is lit can have a huge impact on the overall comfort level of the room itself. Choosing soft light as opposed to bright, harsh ceiling lights is a good way to go. In fact, avoiding ceiling lighting whenever possible is one way to make the light in your room more comfortable. Using dimmers on the lights in your bedroom can give you complete control over the brightness level, and using a shade on the bulbs helps diffuse the light around the room. To prevent your room from being too bright due to natural sunlight, install shades, blinds or curtains to darken the room.

2. Play around with rugs

It doesn't matter if your bedroom is covered with laminate, tiles or you have wooden floors, rugs are a great way to add texture and color to your bedroom. Of course, this can also ensure warmer and more comfortable walking surfaces. Laying rugs in different shapes and patterns is an easy way to add some comfort to your bedroom.

3. Add more decorative pillows

Adding pillows to your bedroom is another way to create a cozy atmosphere. After all, what could be cozier than a pile of fluffy pillows? When it comes to pillows and their role in bedroom comfort, usually the more you have, the better. You can also combine different colors and designs of pillows to add stylish decor to the room.

4. Opt for quality bedding

Investing in good bedding is a great decision to improve bedroom comfort. This is perhaps the most important aspect of the bedroom as it will directly affect the quality of sleep you can have. Bedding should be made of high-quality and soft fabrics. Also, make sure you choose a mattress that's right for you - you'll be grateful for the choice in the long run.

5. Avoid electronics

Electronics very rarely contribute to the comfort level or pleasant atmosphere of the bedroom. Of course, watching your favorite show from the comfort of your bed is nice, but visible electronic cables are not. Hide electronics whenever possible and try to identify which ones emit sounds or light that could affect your sleep.

6. Hang inspirational/soothing artwork

Hanging art or displaying decor in your bedroom that inspires and soothes will help create the relaxing tone you're looking for. Picturesque artwork of the natural environment can be a great choice, as can meaningful photographs or historical memorabilia that say something about your personality.

7. Place furniture strategically

The placement of your bedroom furniture can have a big impact on comfort. Be careful not to clutter your bedroom with furniture, as this can create a stressful and disorganized environment. The location of the furniture in your bedroom should be practical, functional and pleasant. Examples of an optimized bedroom layout include having your bed facing away from doors and windows, placing nightstands within reach of your bed and ensuring they are at the right heights, as well as properly allocating different parts of the room for specific activities (eg creative nook, workstation, sleeping area, etc.).

8. Reduce the noise

Reducing noise in your bedroom will help you sleep better. Gadgets and electronics that make noise can wake you up at night. Try to keep these devices as far away from your bed as possible or turn them off every night. Sometimes adding 'inaudible' noise to your bedroom from a fan or air purifier can also be an effective strategy.

9. Control the temperature

A room that's too hot or too cold can't possibly be comfortable, but there are things you can do to control the temperature in your bedroom. The ideal temperature for sleeping is around 18-19 degrees Celsius. Consider programming your thermostat to that temperature. While we mentioned earlier that you can never have enough pillows, adding too many can cause the temperature in your bed to rise and make for an uncomfortable sleep. If you want the pillows to be on display during the day, maybe remove them at night when it's time to sleep.

10. Think about colors

Certain color schemes and shades can increase or decrease the comfort level of a bedroom. While there is no clear answer as to whether dark shades or light colors work better for a more comfortable room, it is important to determine what is more inviting and what will help you feel most relaxed and comfortable. Some believe that an all-white room is the most pleasant space, while others prefer a dark color that envelops the space more. Whatever you choose, aim for consistency and match the color of your bedroom with decor and materials that complement comfort.

Some swear by the black and white combination
