Transforming your bedroom into a comfortable retreat

The average person spends about 10 hours a day in their bedroom. This not only includes sleeping, but also watching television, spending time with members of our family, getting ready for the day and also to go to sleep. Because this is such a large portion of our day, the bedroom should be a place where you actually want to spend time. Bedrooms aren't just for sleeping these days. This one room can serve a whole host of functions when used to its absolute fullest potential.

Here are a few tips for updating your bedroom to make it a functional and cozy retreat:

  • Custom window coverings: Not only will having custom drapes over your windows make the room feel more homey, they will also serve a more practical function. You want your bedroom to be a place where you can relax and unwind after the day, and you can do so by pulling the custom blinds closed — giving you ultimate privacy and security.
  • Install another television: Sometimes you just want to kick back and watch some TV without any distractions. Having a second television in your house, specifically in the bedroom, will be great for those fall and winter nights where you just want to curl up and watch something comforting before going to sleep.
  • Invest in a desk: If you are somebody who works from home a lot, you can transform one corner of your bedroom into an office space. This will allow you to get your work done from the comfort of your bedroom on those days when you just can't make it into the office.
