Bedrooms are without a doubt the most personal and intimate part of our homes. The perfect bedroom should be designed to be comfortable, cozy, and a place show off your personality! Whether you prefer bright and bold colours or simple and airy neutrals, we’re going to share some expert-approved tips on designing a super cozy bedroom you’ll never want to leave!
Install A Fireplace For Extra Warmth
At the end of a long day, your bedroom should be a warm and welcoming retreat, and a fireplace is the perfect solution for turning a plain space into super cozy sleeping quarters. Whether you use it to add extra heat or just bring style and architectural detail, a fireplace instantly enhances a room. We recommend a wall-mounted fireplace with multiple settings, so you have the choice of a flame only without heat, and you can enjoy the look of a fire year-round.

Use Natural Textures To Create A Comfortable Oasis
Bedrooms are an ideal place for earthy-tones and neutral paint colours. Why? Experts agree that natural colours can calm your psyche and evoke a sense of rest. We recommend a subtle palette and soft variations of white on white or cream and taupe if you want the ultimate peaceful retreat.
Mixed materials like the down-filled duvet, grass cloth wall covering, bamboo bench, and wool Berber carpet add warmth. The sleepy space gets a gentle wake up from the quiet splashes of celadon green on the bed linens, pillows, and bench cushion. Plus, the plush wool Berber carpet is a soft landing spot for bare feet. (The rest of the floors in the house are sisal or hardwood.)
Choose The Right Mattress
Your mattress ultimately dictates how well you sleep at night, so make sure you invest in something that is worth the money and will last for years.
Here are some tips for choosing the right mattress:
- Thickness: Most mattresses measure from five inches (5″) to 15 inches (10″) in height. Consider your body weight when choosing a thickness. If you are lighter, you may prefer a medium tick mattress. Heavier individuals may sleeping on a thicker mattress more comfortable.
- Memory Foam: The comfort layers at the top of a mattress are linked to how well the mattress comforms to your body. This is important because you need a mattress that will relieve pressure and align the spine for a good night’s rest. Mattress models with thicker memory foam and latex layers are the most comfort and conform best to the body.
- Lasting Durability: Memory foam mattresses can last you upwards to 10 years, whereas latex and airbed mattresses can last even longer. Hybrid or innerspring mattresses can last a few years, since their construction is extremely cheap and loses form quickly.
Layer Fabrics, Drapes, and Pillows
Ever wonder why hotel beds look so comfortable to the point you can’t wait to dive in? Designers agree that the key is in layering fabrics and textures in multiple layers, because it creates a sense of security, warmth, and peace. In this space by Kay Green Design, Kay layered a patterned quilt over cottons sheets and 3 layers of pillows. The black-out drapes are Egyptian cotton and are hung high to elongate the windows. We suggest mixing materials like a down-filled duvet, grass cloth wall covering, or a wool carpet to add warmth.
Choose The Correct Lighting
Overhead lighting is unnecessarily bright for a room where sleep is paramount. Either put your light fixture on a dimmer or get rid of it altogether, perhaps replacing it with a lightless wooden fan. Instead of an overhead light, use a variety of smaller lamps set at varying heights to provide a texture of light. Use low-wattage bulbs and sturdy lampshades to diffuse the light throughout the room for maximum coziness.
