Add plants to your space

Also, do not move the whole of amazon forest to your bedroom, just two or three are enough and some can go in your living room.

Have a single colour scheme

When decorating your home, you can consider enveloping your bedroom with one colour scheme.

Your bedroom should make you feel comfortable when you want to rest. Therefore, go for slightly darker tones when buying your stuff.

Darker tones are more calm and easy on the eyes, which ultimately can be relaxing after a long day of work.

In case your wall colours do not match the colour palette you are going for, you can always buy wallpaper and have them fixed on your walls.

Keep your room clean

This is the easiest way to ensure your bedroom remains neat and upgraded for longer.

The more space your bedroom has the more comfortable it makes you feel. Get rid of all items cluttering your space that you don’t need and store away nonessential items in the closet to give your room enough space to breathe.

Always ensure your sheets are freshly changed and the duvet newly laundered. When your bedroom is clean and fresh, you are guaranteed a good night sleep.
