How to Make Your Bedroom an Oasis

What Makes Rooms Feel Cozy?

The most important element of making a bedroom an oasis is making it feel cozy. There are several ways to make your bedroom inviting and comforting, regardless of its size or shape.

One way to add warmth and comfort to any room is by using soft textures such as flannel bedding, fluffy rugs, and faux fur throws. Soft textures can also be created with throw pillows and blankets in a variety of colors and patterns. Incorporating these fabrics into your bedroom will create an inviting atmosphere that feels cozy and luxurious.

Lighting is also key to creating an oasis-like feeling in your bedroom, so it’s important to have the right type of lighting installed. Natural light is ideal, but if this isn’t possible then you should consider using lamps with warm tones like yellow or orange bulbs as they help to create a cozy ambiance. You can also add some low-level lighting, such as string lights or candles, to give the room a calm and relaxing vibe.

Adding greenery to any room has many benefits, not only does it look aesthetically pleasing, but plants can also help to purify the air and add oxygen to the room. For a bedroom oasis, choose smaller plants that don’t require much maintenance, like succulents or cacti.

10 Methods How to Make Your Bedroom an Oasis

1.  De-clutter

The first step to creating an oasis is to de-clutter your space. Get rid of any clothes that you don’t wear, books that you haven’t read, or knick-knacks that you don’t need. Having a clean and organized space will help you to feel more relaxed and at ease. While it is important to have a few meaningful items around, try not to overcrowd your room with unnecessary belongings.

Having a Clean 
And Organized Space

To help with this, invest in some storage containers and bins that can easily store your items while still keeping them out of sight. However, if you are feeling overwhelmed by the task of de-cluttering, enlist the help of a friend or family member to give you an extra hand.

2.  Add Some Plants

Adding some plants to your bedroom can help to create a more peaceful and serene environment. Plants can help to purify the air and improve your indoor air quality. They can also help to reduce stress levels and promote a sense of well-being.

Choose plants that are easy to care for and require minimal maintenance such as succulents, spider plants, or pothos. Place plants near windows or in the corner of your room for an added touch of nature. Adding a bit of greenery will instantly make your bedroom feel more inviting and calming.

3.  Incorporate Feng Shui Principles

Feng shui is an ancient Chinese practice that helps people to create balance and harmony in their lives. When incorporating feng shui into your bedroom, there are a few things to keep in mind.

First, make sure that your bed is in alignment with the door so that you can see who is coming in. Second, ensure that there is enough space around your bed so that you can move freely. Third, use calming colors such as blue or green to create a sense of tranquility.

4.  Choose the Right Furniture

When choosing furniture for your bedroom, it is important to select pieces that are both functional and stylish. Invest in a comfortable bed and mattress, as this will be where you spend the majority of your time. Select nightstands that offer ample storage space for all of your nighttime essentials.

And, choose a dresser that is both stylish and functional so that you have a place to store all of your clothes. Finally, add a comfortable seating area to the room so that you can relax and unwind. Although the furniture should be stylish, make sure it is also comfortable so that you can enjoy a peaceful oasis in your bedroom.

5.  Create a Reading Nook

If you enjoy reading, then creating a reading nook in your bedroom can be the perfect way to relax and unwind at the end of the day. Choose a comfortable chair or sofa and place it near a window so that you can enjoy natural light while you read. Add a floor lamp for additional light if needed.

Then, stock your reading nook with plenty of books so that you always have something new to read. Don’t forget to add a cozy blanket and some pillows so that you can curl up and get lost in your favorite book. You’ll soon have a peaceful and calming area that will help you escape into your own little world.

6.  Install Blackout Curtains

If you live in an area with lots of streetlights or live near an airport, then installing blackout curtains can help you to get a better night’s sleep. Blackout curtains block out all light so that you can sleep in complete darkness if desired. This can help to promote better sleep quality and can also be helpful for those who suffer from insomnia or other sleep disorders.

Additionally, blackout curtains can help to keep your bedroom cooler in warm weather and warmer in cold weather. This can make it more comfortable to sleep in your bedroom year-round. Though blackout curtains can be expensive, they can also last for years and are an investment in your health.

7.  Use Essential Oils

Essential oils can be a great way to create a calming atmosphere in your bedroom. Lavender essential oil is one of the most popular calming scents and it can be used in a variety of ways. Use an oil diffuser to fill your room with the scent of lavender or place drops of oil on your pillowcase.

Soaking in an Epsom salt bath with a few drops of essential oil can also help you relax and prepare for a good night’s sleep.  Additionally, using essential oils in a room spray can create a relaxing environment that will last throughout the day. Just combine essential oils with water in a spray bottle and spritz it around your bedroom to create a serene atmosphere.

8.  Choose a Soft Color Palette

When choosing colors for your bedroom, opt for soft pastels or neutrals. These colors evoke feelings of peace and comfort, setting a tranquil tone for the room. Consider adding splashes of color to liven it up, such as by hanging artwork or bringing in colorful accent pieces.

Consider Adding 
Splashes of Color

When using brighter colors, it’s important to keep them balanced and not overwhelm the space with too much brightness. Aim for colors that work together to create a calming atmosphere, such as blue and green or pink and gray.

9.  Add Some Soft Lighting

Adding soft lighting to your bedroom can help to create a peaceful and calming atmosphere. Place lamps in corners or on nightstands to create a warm, ambient glow. If possible, you can also install some dimmer switches so you can adjust the brightness level as desired.

If you are looking for something a little different, consider installing some fairy lights around the bed or in other areas of your bedroom. This will give off a whimsical, magical feeling and will help to set the right mood.

10. Get Rid of Electronics

The last step to creating an oasis in your bedroom is to get rid of all electronics. This includes TVs, laptops, and phones. Electronics can be a major distraction, and having them in your bedroom can take away from relaxation and restful sleep.

If you must have electronics in your bedroom, make sure they have an off switch that you can easily access. That way you won’t be tempted to stay up until the wee hours of the morning scrolling through social media or watching Netflix. Instead, save those activities for other rooms in the house and reserve your bedroom for relaxation only.

 for Relaxation Only


Now that you know the different steps of how to make your bedroom an oasis, all that’s left to do is to get started – after all, you want those peaceful nights sleep and tranquil mornings. Start by evaluating the layout of your bedroom; notice which points of feng shui could be improved upon and figure out precisely what furniture items and decor pieces you need.

After shopping around and finding the perfect pieces, start curating your space by slowly styling it until it becomes exactly the cozy sanctuary your heart desires. The fun part is finally here, now that you are at the design phase– don’t forget to also involve some relaxing sounds from time to time as balance for the ideal vibes in your personal oasis.
