Bedrooms are the restful havens of our homes. They are spaces we go for respite and beauty sleep, to re-energize and re-invigorate for the busy days or months ahead. It is for this reason our bedrooms should adequately provide an area in which we are able to be satisfied and happy. Creating a comfortable bedroom may not seem all that difficult, but achieving a balance between sophisticated style, sumptuousness, and pleasure can often prove a tricky task. So where to begin when ensuring our homes are restfully luxurious? 

Today on homify we are checking out seven handy hints that will provide your sleeping quarters with a sense of amenity and contentment, while still looking opulent and swank. Take a gander at the following examples below, and ensure your bedroom is beautifully adorned, and contentedly calm. 

The height of luxury

This bedroom is picture perfect. Not only is it replete with a huge upholstered bedhead, it has all the necessary trimmings to make it a stylish and enjoyable sleeping space. The colour scheme of the room is generally quite neutral, and this helps to ensure it evokes feelings of serenity and tranquility. Oozing country elegance, the space has an abundance of plush accessories to help ensure it is sumptuous and luxurious. Adding luxury items will always help to create a feeling of palatial lavishness, and in this space it is done with refinement and sophistication.

What better way is there to create a luxuriant space than by adding a private bathing space? This room is replete with a charming seaside-esque space that effortlessly includes a stylish and endearing washroom. The freestanding bath is visible through the glass window wall, displaying an area that is both romantic and functional. The space can easily be incorporated into the bedroom, or made a little more private with a blind. If you are considering adding an ensuite to your dwelling, contact a professional architect, and ensure you get assistance, and some smart design ideas.

Sumptuous textiles

Sumptuous textiles are an easy way to inject a little lavishness into your bedroom. Choose rich and plush textiles, and avoid cheap quality items that will only age quickly and won't add anything to your space. In this example we see a very luxurious loft bedroom space, which has been beautifully adorned with dark contrasting throw rugs and sophisticated white cotton bedding.

Sure, a television in the bedroom might be a bad idea, but it certainly adds to the comfort and enjoyment of watching a film. There are good ways to install a TV within your sleeping space, and inevitably, there are bad ways as well. Here in this example we see a definite success story. The room is undoubtedly luxurious: the colour scheme is restful and enjoyable, while the bedding is extravagant and in-keeping with the decor. The television is a minimal accessory, and although it take up space on the wall, it does not intrude on the surrounding serentiy of the space. 

Simple rustic charm

This adorable rustic space foregoes the typical luxuries such as thick velvet throw rugs, extravagant light fittings, or upholstered furniture, for a simpler and more earthy aesthetic. The bedhead is constructed from tree branches, which immediately gives a sense of nature and the organic atmosphere of the space. There are also more functional fixtures such as a wash basin, and small food preparation area, allowing this room to serve as a self-contained studio flat.

The warmth of naked flames just exudes cosiness and comfort, so what better way to enhance your sleeping space than with a heritage or contemporary fireplace? Here we see a bedroom space that has taken the old rustic fireplace, closed it, and instead of filling it in, made a space to light candles. This reduces the amount of maintenance normally necessary when owning this fixture, while leaving the feature just as enticing.

Accessories

Accessorising correctly is one of the best ways to ensure your bedroom is sumptuous and enjoyable. Think vintage silverware for breakfast in bed, plenty of floral blooms, throw cushions, rugs, and more! Choose colours that suit your decor, and remember to only add items that you truly like and enjoy, in order to keep your space minimal, and avoid clutter.
